'The vast majority of responsible law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war' Obama said.
We have to be very careful with this rhetoric,
because he is very good at crafting words. If he means stricter rules on
mentally ill people getting a hold of guns, he has my support. If he
means stricter rules on the mentally ill getting semi-automatic weapons,
he has my support. If he means initiative to improve public health and
community, he has my support.
If he means "ban all semi-automatic rifles", I will assist the NRA in fighting him tooth and nail. From other sources, I just learned that Joe Biden is forming the "preventing gun violence task force".
Joe Biden was a spearhead in 1994 for the Brady Campaign's Assault Weapons Ban. He has gone to the Brady Campaign in an effort to craft legislation to fight gun rights. It's going to be a tooth and nail fight on this one.
