Obama offers new gun control steps

WASHINGTON (AP) - Striving to take action where Congress would not, the Obama administration announced new steps today on gun control, curbing the import of military surplus weapons and proposing to close a little-known loophole that lets felons and others circumvent background checks by registering guns to corporations. Four months after a gun control drive collapsed spectacularly in the Senate, President Barack Obama added two more executive actions to a list of 23 steps the White House determined Obama could take on his own to reduce gun violence. With the political world focused on Mideast tensions and looming fiscal battles, the move signaled Obama’s intent to show he hasn’t lost sight of a cause he took up after 20 first graders and six adults were gunned down last year in an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

More people are killed by drunk drivers than by guns - let's take cars away from law-abiding drivers to correct that problem!!!

None of the proposals would have prevented the Newtown killings. The problem is not ineffective laws but defective people.

Looks like Obammy is throwing up another smoke screen to get the people off his other problems and scandals he has caused . This guy is a blow hard who lacks any kind of leadership skills. Except one, that is BS ing the people
