Can’t let a crisis go to waste~Rahm Emanuel (one of Obama’s puppet masters)
From The Hill:
President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.
Obama supports Sen. Dianne Feinstein “Assault Weapons Ban” that includes banning certain shotguns, rifles and handguns.
“I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”
[…]Obama on Sunday repeated those calls and said he would meet with lawmakers on both sides of the aisles to see action.
“I’ve been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” the president said.
Except for the ones he sold to the Mexican drug cartels during Fast & Furious or the arms he sold to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood or to al-Qaeda linked Libyan rebels.
“I’d like to get it done in the first year. I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden’s task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off.”
How many jobs will this create? ZERO. How about cutting your deficits this year?
