"Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said she would push legislation next year to ban future sales of military-assault weapons like those used in the elementary school shooting. The bill will ban big clips, drums and strips of more than 10 bullets."

The bill may ban big clips, drums and strips, but it doesn't ban the amount of clips a person can have on them. A well-trained gunman can change out multiple clips while on a rampage.

This doesn't stop the madness of a mentally ill person with a gun in their possession.


I expected Obama to politicize this issue, but was shocked when he did it during what was supposed to be a memorial address. I'm sure the grieving families appreciated the horrible timing of his gun control address.

plyxply: Not once did the President mention gun control, not once!


He definitely addressed it, semantics xscribe, semantics. He may not have said the exact words "gun control" but he did definitely address the issue of gun control.

In your mind! But talk about politicizing something: You inject your own belief about what he says into your own political statement. Pot, meet kettle!
