Obama to Push a New "Gun Control Effort" in the Next 2 Weeks


In the Spirit of 'Never letting a Good Crisis go to Waste', according to an Article in Newsweek, Obama intends on pushing a new "Gun Control Effort" in the next few weeks:

"in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.

Tuesday night after the speech, Obama adviser David Plouffe said to NBC News that the president would not let the moment after the Arizona shootings pass without pushing for some change in the law, to prevent another similar incident. “It’s a very important issue, and one I know there’s going to be debate about on the Hill.”

The White House said that to avoid being accused of capitalizing on the Arizona shootings for political gain, Obama will address the gun issue in a separate speech, likely early next month. He’s also expected to use Arizona as a starting point, but make the case that America’s gun laws have been too loose for much longer than just the past few weeks."


I expect this "Effort" to include a Bill that is far too big to be read and may include some pretty intrusive "Gun Control".
.
What kind? Not Sure but lets look at Obama's History on Gun Control to get an Idea.

Here is a Video From CNN that talks about some of Obama's Gun Views according to Hillary's campaign:




Here is a Video where Obama says the 2nd Amendment "Means Something" (LOL) and if the Government would confiscate every one's weapons it would be "Open to Constitutional Challenge", no kidding really?:




Here is another Video of Obama talking about how the Right of Lawful Gun Owners are "Constrained by the needs of the Community" (CoughSocialismCough):




Here is a video about how Obama Lied during a Presidential Debate and about how he Supports a Ban on handguns:




Here is an NRA Commercial that highlights some of Obama's Ideas on Gun Control:




Here is a Video where Obama admits he supports a Ban on Concealed Carry Laws:




Here is a video where Obama doesn't deny that he supports registering legal gun owners but instead says he "Doesn't think he can get that done.":




Here is a Video where Obama supports the D.C. Gun Ban and then equates the Ban of Guns for Legal Law Abiding Citizens (Which is what the D.C. Gun Ban Did) to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals:



And Finally we have the memorable statement from Obama where he says those of us that are "bitter" cling to guns.. etc.. etc..


So as you can see, based on Obama's Own words and beliefs ANY "Gun Control Effort" pushed by Him needs to be Watched Very, Very, Closely.

Because the last paragraph in the quote above reveals Obama's True Intentions:

"Obama will address the gun issue in a separate speech, likely early next month. He’s also expected to use Arizona as a starting point, but make the case that America’s gun laws have been too loose for much longer than just the past few weeks."
