Obama calls for agreement on gun reforms

Obama calls for agreement on gun reforms - Politics - msnbc.com

Quote:
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama waded into the politically treacherous gun control debate on Sunday, calling for reform of rules to prevent attacks like the one that wounded an Arizona congresswoman two months ago.

Obama, in an opinion piece published in the Arizona Daily Star, said some 2,000 people had perished from gun violence in the short time since a gunman in Tucson killed six people and shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head.

"Every single day, America is robbed of more futures. It has awful consequences for our society. And as a society, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to put a stop to it," he wrote.

Obama said he believed the U.S. Constitution's second amendment guaranteed a citizen's right to bear arms.

Sensitive to accusations that he favors broad limitations on gun use, Obama emphasized that his administration had expanded gun owners' rights, allowing them to carry guns in national parks and wildlife refuges, for example.

Gun control is a divisive issue in U.S. politics that some voters use as a litmus test to determine their support for political candidates. Democrats are traditionally viewed as favoring stricter limitations while Republicans are viewed as supporting policies friendlier to gun owners.

Obama, a Democrat, said it was time to move beyond that divide. "I believe that if common sense prevails, we can get beyond wedge issues and stale political debates to find a sensible, intelligent way to make the United States of America a safer, stronger place," he wrote.

When Democrats acquire any inkling of common sense, someone please let me know.

Don't burst his bubble.

It's part of the playbook that calls for turning a blind eye toward "my side" ......and only blaming others.

Re: Obama calls for agreement on gun reforms

I wouldnt say all politicians lack common sense, some just choose to not use it.

Everyone knows Democrats lack common sense, this shouldnt be news to anyone.

Re: Obama calls for agreement on gun reforms

Why can't anyone look at the overwhelming statistics that show when states enact the right to carry the crime rates drop. There is no answer to keeping guns out of the bad guys hands, the only people gun control effects are the good guys.

Just the other day a report on the news here in Michigan told of three people that ordered a pizza to be delivered to their house. When the delivery guy showed up with the pizza they "tried" to hold him up at gun point and mug him. The delivery guy pulled his concealed weapon shot one BG dead and injured the other two, escaping this predicament himself unwounded.

How is this not a success story?
