Obama unveils $500 million
gun violence package

Associated Press, by Erica Werner & Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/16/2013 12:37:31 PM

WASHINGTON— Without waiting for Congress, President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced a sweeping $500 million program to curb gun violence, setting up a fight over universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting. Obama also used his presidential powers to issue 23 orders that don´t require congressional approval. The largely incremental executive steps include requiring federal agencies to make more data available for background checks, appointing a fulltime director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and directing the Centers

Interesting how the tragic act of a deranged individual merits a massive response, but the deliberate, coordinated, criminal activities of the executive branch, called "Fast and Furious", are marginalized and ignored.

Where is the money coming from?
Was it authorized by the House?
I guess since we haven´t had a budget for 3 years, we don´t need one, and Obama can spend whatever he wants on anything.
Unless there is an appropriations bill to back this spending, the House should shut him down

We have a wannabe ghetto thug as president, who is an advocate for illegal drug use, which, in turn, is the basis for the gang violence as they carve out sales areas.

So, is anyone going to ask a school principal or official or the Prezy how this makes things better when a bad guy approaches a school with weapons? The schools are disarmed.Any location that does not allow guns is a target. So,no matter how many laws, rules, whatever, bear in mind: a criminal does NOT follow rules. The most vulnerable are still vulnerable, unprotected and sitting ducks.

I though that Congress spent all the money.

Obama has not spent one minute in Chicago speaking with his own Southside neighbors about the deaths of their innocent children at the hands of the thug "children" of his other neighbors. These are the same people who turn out to welcome him adoringly when he deigns to make rare trip back to the house....A house that needs 3 shifts of ARMED Secret Service to guard it while it stands empty. (He usually stays elsewhere when in Chicago).

To those with children in school: are you seriously worried about gun violence affecting your child? I´m not. These shootings are isolated incidents carried out by mentally ill people. Would any of these new measures have prevented this shooting? I think not. The guns were legally-owned and registered. How would more gun control of the type they are talking about prevent a mentally ill son from stealing his mother´s legally-owned guns?

After reading all of the executive orders the only thing I´m worried about is the future of the GOP: there is nothing in there that infringes on the rights of the second amendment and if the GOP continues to lie to the public and/or act like the sky is falling whenever Dear Leader does something, they will lose all credibility. The GOP used to be the rational, sober party. Now it´s full of hysterical bomb throwers.

We´d all be better off if the $500 million were to be dedicated to getting the psychotics in our midst into institutions. If romantic liberals in the "caring professions" hadn´t pushed for the deinstitutionalizing of crazies, there would have been no Aurora, no VMI, no Tucson and no Sandy Hook.

But I suppose they´re useful tools for the gun haters.

Requiring background checks for the sale of private arms is nothing more than the govt initiating and maintaining a database of gun ownership.

It´s forced registration.

I will NOT do that. We must resist.

If you want to buy a gun from me and have cash and an ID, you got it. Big Bro can go pound sand.

Unfortunately, I don´t have any guns. I lost all my guns in the flood, the hurricane, the tornado, a burglary, and those that I did manage to save were sold by my ex-wife while I was in jail in Mexico. So I now live in a gun free zone.

Hope your gun situation is better than mine.

When has obama ever had justification for anything he has done? We need not look for a reason because there is none. We can blame ourselves and our no-guts congress for standing by and watching him act like dictator of the world. An all out gun grab will be more difficult than an information exchange since his people will be trampling on the constitution while we defend it. Now there´s justification fer ya.

The $500 million would be better spent for health care for those who truly cannot afford health care and are unable to work.

The school districts have budgets to hire armed guards and those who fail to, do so at their own peril.

Universal background checks means banning private sales and this is GUN REGISTRATION. Registration lists are only used to confiscate.

I agree with #6. WHERE DOES THE MONEY COME FROM? The House has to pass all spending bills, and this needs to be specifically blocked.

The Demonrat ´innovation´ of NO BUDGETS means NO Congressional control. More power to the POTUS, who already thinks he is king.

Cole announced six "stringent standards" the department will consider when reviewing and expediting clemency applications from federal inmates. He also replaced the Bush administration appointee who heads DOJ´s Pardons office. Under the new initiative, DOJ will prioritize clemency applications from inmates who meet all of the following requirements:-- They are currently serving time in a federal prison and likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today;

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- A Fort Carson commander who wasn´t allowed to leave for Afghanistan with his troops last month was suspended over allegations that he was insensitive to victims of sexual assault and discrimination, a newspaper reported Tuesday. The details were reported in The Gazette (http://bit.ly/1k3YHKd) based on a 361-page investigative report it obtained under the Federal Freedom of Information Act. It provided the first account the Army has released about the suspension of Col. Brian Pearl and offers a view into how sensitive the issue of sexual assault has become for the Army.

TOKYO — President Obama stepped off Air Force One in Japan apparently with an appetite for sushi. After a quick refresh at the Hotel Okura near the U.S. Embassy, Obama joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for dinner at a tiny sushi shop in the city’s Ginza neighborhood. They were joined by U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, the White House said. The restaurant — Sukiyabashi Jiro — has earned a rare three-star Michelin rating.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.
