    Default Obama to 'evaluate' gun control laws proposed in wake of Colorado mass murder

    The Washington Times is reporting that President Obama is considering support for the latest legislative knee-jerk reaction to mass murder in a "no-guns" zone - a proposed ban on the sale of ammunition online and on standard capacity magazines (neither of which would have stopped the Aurora, CO spree killer).

    From the article:

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday that President Obama will "evaluate" a new bill that would ban online ammunition sales in the wake of the shooting massacre in Aurora, Colo. That left 12 dead and dozens more injured.

    During the daily press briefing, Mr. Earnest was asked whether Mr. Obama supports the measure, which aims to end sales of unlimited amounts of ammunition on the Internet and other mail orders. The bill also would force ammunition dealers to report large sales of bullets and other munitions to law enforcement authorities

    At first Mr. Earnest said he didn't know if Mr. Obama was aware of a bill sponsored by Sen. Frank Lautenberg, Democrat from New Jersey, and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, a Democrat from New York. He later amended this remarks to say the White House would evaluate the measure.

    According to the article, the reporter followed up by asking whether the president's push for enforcing existing law would prevent him from supporting the bill banning online munition sales.


    "Well, like I said, I haven't seen the specific piece of legislation that has been offered up today. But as those as that and other pieces of legislation make their way through the legislative process, you know, we'll consider we'll evaluate them as they make their way through the process," he noted.

    As John Lott pointed out this week in an op-ed published at FoxNews.com, the Lautenberg and McCarthy proposal "would make rules for buying ammunition the same as for buying a gun. But the Colorado killer was able to legally buy a gun from a dealer and, under the proposal, he still would have been able to buy the ammunition. The requirement of a photo ID seems equally irrelevant in this case.

    "The law also would mandate licensed ammunition dealers to report the sale of more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition to an unlicensed person within any five consecutive business days. But what good would that do? The Colorado killer apparently planned his attack at least four months in advance. If he were trying to hide his ammunition purchases, he could easily have spread them out over time."

    Several Senate Democrats including Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have also proposed amending the cybersecurity bill to ban magazines holding more than 10 bullets. But as Lott notes, "we have already tried the magazine ban and it won't be any more helpful now than it was when the Federal Assault Weapon Ban was in effect from 1994 to 2004. A magazine, which is basically a metal box with a spring, is trivially easy to make and virtually impossible to stop criminals from obtaining.

    "Further, the guns in several recent mass shootings (including the one in Aurora and last year in Tucson) have jammed because of the large magazines that were used."

    o bummers position on gun control doesn't surprise me any considering his voting record on gun laws.....i think it would be wise to stock up on ammo asap before those ideas are made into laws ......my guess is many of these shootings were done by mind controlled patsies to manipulate the minds of many and get them ready to accept such tyrannical laws and bring big brother into more power to constrict our rights
    gun control is being able to hit your target

    Obama doesn't need to evaluate the gun control proposals. He has always believed in the total elimination of firearms in the hands of citizens and in Illinois has voted this way. The elimination of firearms is necessary for the CHANGE he wants. He considers the US Constitution an obstical to this change and the elimination of individual liberty.

    Obama has neither the skill set to evaluate guns or anything else, he has suckled off the American T his entire life as has his wife, man could not earn a living in real life if necessary. Total loser, I am voting against him because of his own words in his own book. American Traitor.

    Obama will evaluate how many votes "gun control" will cost him in this election, and then say nothing else until its over. And then, if he's back to being Mr. Obama, he'll try something before leaving office. If by some stroke of evil luck he wins, then we had better look out.

    You are exactly right sir.

    Infortunately about half of the voters within our country are so ignorant about history and blinded by their partisanship that they will probably still continue to vote for Fascists like Obama and the continued destruction of our Constitutional Liberties.
    Fascist's are Magicians...They can make our Property, our Freedom's & even our Children 'Disappear'.

    Remember in his own words " After the election I will have more flexibility". That will be the case win or lose. He will still be president until Jan. 20, 2013. The House is the only branch of government in his way. The Harry Reid senate will be stubbing all over themselves trying to do his bidding. With that and executive orders who knows how flexible he can be. Don't leave out the civil unrest from the democrats OWS branch, protesting how the election was stolen from them.

    If Obama is reelected he will no longer have the inconvenient restrictions of the constitution to worry about. His desired dictatorship will become a reality. Congress and the courts have already been emasculated; so you really can't count on them to protect your liberty. He already told the Russian President that after the election he will destroy US military capabilities. Gun control, the elimination of private property rights, and a socialist economy will be done deals after the election. And he can do inestimable damage even if he becomes a "lame duck". Yes, we really do have a "brave new world" to look foreword to under a second term.

    Well here's another nail in our coffin with this newest shooting in Wisconsin, this stupid AH didn't even one faith from another, all he wanted to do is shoot anyone that wasn't white, what a poor example of a human being.
