This is the same “sheriff” Obama appointed to govern waste and fraud in his stimulus. How did that work out? Look at all the green energy loans that went to Obama’s bundlers then look at all the bankruptcies.
From The Hill:
President Obama pledged Wednesday that his newly announced working group on gun violence would bring him recommendations on “real reforms” by the end of January.
The group, to be led by Vice President Biden, is tasked with finding solutions to reduce gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., elementary school shootings.
The president said Wednesday that the team “has a very specific task — to pull together real reforms, right now,” pledging the task force would present concrete conclusions by the end of January.
CONGRESS is the only body allowed under the US Constitution to make/change laws, not the President and certainly not a radical group of anti-2nd Amendment liberals.
“The fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing,” Obama said.The president stressed that the group would develop a holistic approach to preventing future violence that included not just an examination of gun laws, but mental-health policies and services and the entertainment industry.
Translation: I’m going to attack the 1st and 2nd Amendments simultaneously.
“We’re going to need to look closely at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence,” Obama said, adding that the effort would “begin inside the home and inside our hearts.”
The selection of Biden to head the commission is a clear indication that much of the group’s focus will center around gun laws. The vice president was a key player in the effort to pass the federal assault weapons ban in 1994, earning him an “F” grade from the National Rifle Association. In 2008, the NRA deemed him the “most anti-gun vice president in American history,” decrying Biden’s votes to impose a waiting period on handgun sales and his vote to ban magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
