WHITE HOUSE WEIGHS BROAD GUN CONTROL: Finally. The Washington Post reports that the White House is developing a comprehensive gun control plan that will seek to set regulations far beyond a ban on assault rifles and high-capacity ammo. According to those involved in the talks, Vice President Biden’s squad is considering universal background checks for all gun buyers, a database to track the movement of guns through the nation, stronger mental health checks, and harsh penalties for carrying a gun near a school. Aside from being in contact with NYC Mayor Bloomberg, the new plan will reportedly work around the NRA.

the guns away from the people who didn't do it."

On Sunday, 2 days after the CT shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his X-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater. The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people.
He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming. It's like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant! Now aren't you wondering why this isn't a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting?
There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened. Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal next week.
GUN SHOW AND SALE HELD AN HOUR’S DRIVE FROM SCENE OF NEWTOWN MURDERS: Defiant gun dealers ignored protesters and put their wares on sale at a controversial arms expo yesterday just an hour’s drive from the site of the Newtown, Conn., elementary school massacre. The eighth annual East Coast Fine Arms Show, held at the Stamford Plaza Hotel in Stamford, features about 250 tables and was held despite the objections of Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia, who called it “untimely and insensitive.”
....now that's my kinda gal, by the way.
