It’s all about the propaganda. Left-wing dictators have done this for centuries.
From CBS News:
Just over a month after forming a task force aimed at reducing gun violence, President Obama will formally announce a “package of concrete proposals” for doing so tomorrow, the White House announced today.
Number of “task force” aimed at reducing the Obama administration’s gun sales to Mexican drug cartels: ZERO!
In a White House press briefing today, spokesman Jay Carney declined to outline exactly what Mr. Obama’s plan would entail, but noted that it would reflect the president’s desire for a “comprehensive approach,” as well as specific legislative actions he has called on before — including reinstating the assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazine clips, and expanded background checks for gun owners.
“The president certainly hopes that out of the tragedy of Newtown we can achieve progress towards reducing gun violence in this country,” Carney said. “He believes that we can no longer stand by without taking action…Achieving some of the goals that he has already set might be difficult. Because they’re difficult does not mean they should not be pursued.”
Mr. Obama will also lay out executive orders related to data collection on firearms and overall gun violence, according to CBS News Chief White House correspondent Major Garrett.
At least three pro-gun control groups will attend the announcement, which will take place at 11:45 a.m. ET. Among those in the audience will be children who wrote to the president after school shootings.
