White House weighs broad gun-control agenda in wake of Newtown shootings
The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.

A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.

To sell such changes, the White House is developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses. White House aides have also been in regular contact with advisers to New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg (I), an outspoken gun-control advocate who could emerge as a powerful surrogate for the Obama administration’s agenda.

In addition to potential legislative proposals, Biden’s group has expanded its focus to include measures that would not need congressional approval and could be quickly implemented by executive action, according to interest-group leaders who have discussed options with Biden and key Cabinet secretaries. Possibilities include changes to federal mental-health programs and modernization of gun-tracking efforts by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

"..track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database..."

Track the movement?

I wonder what that means exactly? You have to notify the Feds if you give someone a gun (as opposed to selling it)?

Also, if they're going to track the sale through a national database, how is that different from registration?

So they are going to use the retailers against us.


Can't control ownership, control the supply and transfer?



Everything they fucking propose would not have done anything to stop the CT shootings.

Anyone else thinking this means new purchases will be federally registered?

 Quoting: Tennessee Voodoo


Adler, who has submitted recommendations to Biden’s group, said he has told administration officials that they need to pursue multiple measures to increase their chances of success.

We can’t put all our protection-effort eggs in one basket with one piece of legislation,” he said. “We’ve got to do more than that.”

The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." -- Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President.

More they attempt the more pissed off gun owners will be and more likely they will see armed rebellion.

Re: White House weighs broad gun-control agenda in wake of Newtown shootings
Some of it I could support like the provision to stop those with documented mental illness from getting firearms and the requirement for more thourough background checks. but if an inch is given and it's already clear that they intend to go further and take a mile then the gun folks will have none of it.
