Obama intentionally did not mention a lot of things,im sure he will push for gun control but it wont go anywhere.....i get real sick of obamas broad descriptions that could mean several thousand different things.

When are these bleep-holes finally going to figure out that gun control laws only effect people that follow the laws? The criminals don't care what laws are in place.

This is a foolish course of action. Historically, EXCEPT for large, urban, very liberal areas [e.g. Boston, NY City, San Francisco et.al.] pursuit of gun control laws usually spells electoral disaster for the party pushing gun control, usually the dems. Most commentators agree that Al Gore's espousal of gun control laws very probably cost the Dems the White House in 2000. Most Dem politicians except for the big cities are scared to death of the anti gun backlash. Let's keep it that way!!

There is a brand new 570 bed jail paid for by our taxes, sitting unused, that
could hold most if not all of the criminal shooters in Oregon and Washington.
But the government Unions keep the jail operating costs 'too high', allowing politicians
to deem it more affordable to have the taxpayers killed, robbed, and raped, one by one, so they can squander the budgets to fund more toy trains. These, and the inevitable subsidized housing that grow like fungus in the surrounding neighborhoods, have been the prime arterial for gang territory expansionism, since the first Max train was squeezed out of the taxpayers pockets. If they can't turn a profit without taxes, rip out the tracks.

Cancel the proposed light-rail projects, and miraculously, there would be money to operate the phantom ghost jail (the one that's invisible to all the paper pushing gun-grabbers lurking in their fantasy cubicles, tweeting their adoring newsroom talking heads) Sure, it would require intelligent planning, and inter-agency cooperation, but those are considered science fiction, in the offices of the un-fireable bureaucrats. Adams and Kittzhaber would rather recycle broken glass in the sewers, than open the jail!

The problem is it's not about guns or criminals, it's about control. Why else would they be so focused on taking away the style of guns that are used in less than 1% of crimes. The truly scary part is that this issue does have a fair amount of bipartisan support :shock:!

Now as for Obama, I would be surprised if he, himself, raised the issue of gun control. I suspect that he'll just continue playing puppet master with Holder and Traver (if confirmed) being his primary mouth pieces.
