WASHINGTON- The Obama administration is formulating a broader strategy for gun control as it looks to reduce U.S. gun violence, those privy to the discussions say. Rather than just pursuing the reinstatement of the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, a White House working group led by Vice President Joe Biden is looking at a multi-prong approach that would include universal background checks for gun purchasers, creation of a national database to track guns, strengthening of mental health checks, and tougher penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, sources told The Washington Post.

If I were Obama, I would do the same thing.

Nothing wrong with stiffer penalties for those breaking the law. Nothing wrong with improving mental health issues, as long as there are controls to preclude arbitrarily disqualifying people who happen to disagree with Obama. Lots wrong with national registries of any sort for any purpose. Lots wrong with trying to implement background checks for a private, individual to individual sale, whether at a gun show or elsewhere. And mega-lots wrong with bans on large capacity magazines and some ignorant bureaucrat´s definition of an assault weapon.

And Giving a gun to a minor? You mean like to a minor sibling? That´s smart!

These goofballs have no concept or ability to understand just what it takes to mitigate the problems they are using as leverage to get this done. The incidents, terrible as they might be, are a miniscule part of the problem.

The genius Chicago mayor can´t even reduce the gun violence in his town by a fraction of a percent. Demand that the head of every legitimate household be trained and armed and the crime rate would drop in double digits in two days.

Murder is already against the law. Murderers dont care.
So the obvious answer is to penalize abd crminalize people who do care.
Smooth move, ex-lax.
As they say, molon labe.

Zippy should get with his Hollywood anti-gun hypocrites. Two of their forthcoming epics are the seemingly ultra violent {lots of guns} Gangster Squad and Stallone´s newest revenge movie with the incredible title "Bullet To The Head".

immediate death penalty for any FELON using a weapon in any crime OR caught carrying by police in surprise searches in bars..
oh.. let´s not forget the REAL criminals..
the JUDGES, ATTORNEYS AND SOCIAL WORKERS who allow the above back on the street after their felony conviction...

They have to find a way to keep the dangerous mentally ill population away from firearms. That´s where the problem is.

Try to over reach and ban guns will only hurt the Democrat´s chances in the 2014 election. That happened before, and it will certainly happen again.

The Police Executive Research Forum isn´t a law enforcement organization - it´s a gun control group. These morons haven´t said anything new since 1968.

There´s only one answer to all their findings and recommendations: No. Never. Shut up and go away.

This would be Obama´s FOURTH "Gun Violence Package":
1. Endless Drivebys - Murder the Chicago Way
2. Fast & Furious - Dead Mexicants Everywhere
3. Corner the Ammo Market - 1.5 Billion Rounds of Hollow Point Bullets
Now Comes...
4. Disarm America - If They Move Kill ´Em!

How about mental health checks for those selling weapons to Mexican drug cartels?

Barack Obama can be the first to have his head examined, if Wise King Barky is brave enough to stop hiding behind executive privilege and answer our questions about "Fast & Furious."

Several somebodies in Congress better make some noise about Fast and Furious and the gun running by O in the ME. And the crime rate in his "hometown," where gun controls are in place. And about the dems and their ACLU buddies making it impossible to commit the dangerous mentally ill. O should be up to his ears in shame, but always has the high ground because the media gives it to him and the GOP electeds are wimps.

What about the mental health of those who actually use a gun when they commit a crime?! Better yet, what about addressing the plight of the homeless in this country, as well as crimes committed, which are a direct result from the current lack of compassionate mental health policies?

Instead, 0bama and the statists apparently prefer to harrass law abiding citizens in their quest for power. ...The Founders would be alarmed at such BIG Governmental power grabs, ...which is of course what they sought to prevent when they secured the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights for every American citizen!

Not a one of those ´tough´ measures would have stopped the Sandy Hook shooting. You think a suicidal underage mentally sick gunman stealing his mom´s weapons before killing her would be deterred by any of this?

What garbage. Just an excuse to employ more Obamacrats at six figure salaries and fat pensions with retirement at 50.

Reading thru Obama´s new Global Development Council initiatives, they spend a lot of time re-naming their goals so we extremists don´t freak out.

It´s Mental Health not Guns! Agree w/ poster 2... We need to be cautious that the definition of peeps needing mental health controls on their lives need narrow definitions.

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
