"White House highlights ‘obstacles’ to taking action on guns"

[link to news.yahoo.com]

Loosely translated into "We're VERY close to achieving our goals and need one or more tipping points to get what we want"...

Following the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., in July, several Democratic lawmakers pushed legislation to outlaw the sale of high-capacity gun magazines. At the time, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) was one of the voices cautioning against wading into gun control during an election year. "It's a bad time to embrace a new subject," Feinstein said.

On Sunday, Feinstein pledged to introduce next year a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. "I think America is ready. They're going to have an opportunity with this bill," Feinstein said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Chuck Schumer of New York have both restated their opposition to assault weapons following Friday's massacre.

Connecticut Democratic Gov. Dan Malloy said at a press briefing Monday in Hartford, Conn., that he supports hunters' rights and gun owners' rights but "this stuff has gone too far and is too easy to own." He noted his past support for the Brady Bill and assault weapons ban.

Gun control supporter New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is calling on the president to circumvent Congress and enact gun control action by executive order—though that cannot modify a law.

Calls to review gun policies in the wake of the shooting have not been limited to gun control supporters.

Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, an "A"-rated member of the NRA, told reporters at the state Capitol Monday that "the status quo is not acceptable anymore" and called for restrictions on assault weapons, according to reports.

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, another "A"-rated member of the NRA, on Monday questioned the availability of assault weapons, saying on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," "I don't know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle. I don't know anybody that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. I mean, these are things that need to be talked about."
