Obama to gun-control foes: Examine your conscience; vigorous effort to implement new gun measures

“I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and are within my authority as president," he said. "How we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals and how we track that more effectively.”


Obama vows vigorous effort to implement new gun measures
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Monday that he would formally present this week a list of "sensible, common sense steps" to reduce gun violence from Vice President Joe Biden and vowed to work vigorously to implement them.

Though the proposals have not been made public, a rough outline of what the president hopes to pursue is clear. Obama reiterated that he would support reinstating a ban on assault weapons, stricter controls on high-capacity ammunition clips, and stronger background checks.

Who knows what he'll try...

...but every time I read some pro-control article I shutter at the misuse of gun terminology..."assault rifles", "clips"...ugh. Hard to debate someone who doesn't know one G-D-thing about what they are talking about.How can you make any headway with someone who cant differentiate, and doesn't care to, the difference in a FULLY AUTOMATIC gun and a SEMI-AUTOMATIC gun? How many replays of Boyz n' the Hood do you think these dicks have watched, if they are adults calling a MAGAZINE a "clip"? Geez!

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

Examine your conscience???!!!

This coming from the man who regularly sends drones to kill children!

The hypocricy of our "leaders" is staggering in its depth.

What a sham!

I wish someone would throw this up in his face but, he knows.

What a complete ASS he is! But, not just him...ALL of them!

Examine our conscience, indeed. Examine it as we kneel before a mass grave, right obombya?

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
