President Obama Urges Congress to Vote in Early 2013 to Ban Assault Weapons, High Capacity Magazines  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

President Obama talked about gun control in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six teachers in Newtown, CT, last Friday. He set a January deadline for gun control proposal. He appointed Vice President Joe Biden to led the commission charged with coming up with a set of proposals. He urged Congress to vote early 2013 to ban assault weapons, high capacity magazines & gun show background check loophole. Um, I dare the Republicans to play politics with the lives of innocent people.

President Obama’s comments comes as adulterer Newt Gingrich blames the Newtown school shooting on an “anti-religious” secular government. Um, another self-righteous windbag. He told host Brian Thomas of 55KRC:

When you have an anti-religious, secular bureaucracy and secular judiciary seeking to drive God out of public life, something fills the vacuum. And that something, you know, I don’t know that going from communion to playing war games in which you practice killing people is necessarily an improvement.

    Janet, it just goes to show how naive you, the president and vice-president are. Instead of working on a REAL solution, like increasing funding on mental health research and treatment, these two idiots with your full support go for a feel good solution.
    Right now a lot of people are rushing off to their local gun shop to purchase not only assault weapons, but high capacity handguns as well as magazines for those weapons. SO MANY of these people wouldn’t have dream’t of purchasing any of those items, are doing so, just because there will be a ban on them. So instead of solving a problem, they just increased the amount of these weapons going into circulation.
    Somebody should tell the president it’s time to stand up, and start acting like a REAL president, instead of playing the role of a rock star…

    Its a proven fact that everywhere that removed weapons bans that the crime rate went down. What does that matter though because congress just wants this bill under their belts for their next campaign season.
