Obama Calls For Gun Control, If By “Call” You Mean “Does Nothing”
Here’s the headline:
Obama calls for more steps to curb violence, including gun control
Holy crap, he did?!?
Here’s the body:
Acknowledging sensitivity of the issue, he said he nonetheless believes that even gun owners would agree “that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of children.” He offered no specific proposals but referred to background checks to prevent criminals and fugitives from purchasing weapons, and preventing guns from getting into the hands of the mentally unbalanced. Previous efforts to do the same have been thwarted by political opposition and the reluctance of sympathetic elected officials to take on the National Rifle Assn., among the nation’s most potent lobbying forces.
So, no, he didn’t. Back to work, everybody. (via LA Times)
