Obama plans to surround himself with children during gun control announcement

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a “concrete package” of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks.

Carney said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings.

“They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed.

Thought it was only "Middle Eastern Despots"

who used children as human shields!

OK "PROPOSALS". Finally. Sheesh.

Oh but gee everybody was waiting for the LORD ON HIGH to pronounce the law but by luck he's gonna follow process.

Senators Lieberman and Schumer are champing at their bits and kicking the chutes to pieces so get ready for a DUKE IT OUT on the senate floor.

Early predictions:

1. the NRA is gonna roll over like a log in water.
2. We'll see some new elements join the activist scene.
3. No matter what they do, the whole gun trade is gonna take a step closer to black market in mentality.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

Let's See

Lieberman, Schumer. What kind of names are those?


I think Obama's gonna...

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppression's, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery"
Thomas Jefferson

I think Obama's gonna threaten executive order, And force the Right to "agree" on some "smaller restrictions". If the Right doesn't budge, (which I believe they will), he will just issue the executive order anyway. In my opinion Local Militia's will keep growing faster and faster. Gun owners will start voluntarily(don't really have a choice) becoming "criminals"(Patriots) by refusing to follow the new "laws". Gun's will get...EXPENSIVE! Ammo will become scarce. (already is in most calibers) Meanwhile.... Taxes are going up this year for middle class,(meaning most of us) Jobs are scarce, Unemployment benefits are running out in some states, (WI for sure), social security is all but gone,(so much for it being MY savings for retirement!) banks are not loaning,(credit unions too) people are not saving,(I can't afford to buy anymore precious metals), More chain stores are taking over (4 new strip malls in 2 years in my town of 10,943) small business owners are left with nothing.(except debt, debt, and more debt) They close down their businesses only to realize...now they must go to work for the stores that put them out of business.(WAL-MART) With the mom and pop stores gone,(Mom and Dad are still here, but Little Susie can't afford to care for them anymore so she has to put them in a government living facility. Her job at walmart just doesn't pay enough) All the products available for purchase will then be heavily regulated ( We can't order anymore. ) The only food you can get is that junk that will give you cancer(GM-Oh'sh|t this is bad)

I empathize with your comment Mike, I feel intuitively that there is something else going on at the same time. There are more people becoming conscious of the need for individual rights and a respect for each others differences than ever before.

I expect that through the suppression and unpleasantness that we have facing us, a new expression of society will emerge which recognizes and places importance on these values above all.

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

It is a common ploy

For cowards. It looks better in photos than hiding behind Michele's skirt.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

LoL Typical. Just like in

Safe momentarily

Until collateral damage commences.
