    Biden: Obama Might Use Executive Order to Deal With Guns

    Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns.

    "The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."

    Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it's critically important that we act."

    Biden talked also about taking responsible action. "As the president said, if you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking. But I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of americans and take thousands of people out of harm's way if we act responsibly."

    Biden, as he himself noted, helped write the Brady bill.
    Eric Holder was scheduled to be at the meeting that's currently take place at the White House.

    I personally wouldnt try to say what saving a life is worth....... but what I will say is there is absolutely zero evidence that a complete 100% total ban on all guns will save a single life....... in fact there is irrefutable proof that lives will be lost with or without guns

    That the guvmnt would try confiscating all arms is laughable, not to mention impossible. Not only that, it would cause more deaths than what they trying to prevent... but this is an admin that might try it.

    Something needs to be done about the violence with our young people.

    I agree.

    Take the honest person's guns away and criminals will rejoice. No worrying about getting shot by an angry home owner.

    My theory is people will not give up their guns.

    Politicians know this.

    Whatever the administration does, they will be carefully watched and at the first site of a possible ban, the whole of Hell will open.

    Politicians are gutless. they want to please their voters, keep the cushy job and get reelected.

    Ah...the Brady Bill has nothing to do with Vice President Biden (it was passed in 1993) and everything to do with Ronald Reagan and his press secretary James Brady. It was a Republican initiative.

    The notion that Democrats are out to confiscate your guns, and that Republicans are for liberty has no factual basis. The neocons at the Weekly Standard cannot be trusted to tell the truth.

    When you consider that it's the "strong conservitives" that are working hard to overthrow our Constitutional government and replace it with an authoritarian tyranny, handing absolute power over to a right-wing authoritarian strongmen is the surest way to see our Constitutional liberties go away forever.

    The point is, kids die from all sorts of things. And if "we" are talking about the absurd idea of tossing away the founding documents, perhaps we should look at a highly regulated bathtub industry that is apparently not doing enough to save the children.

    I wasn't so much against ban all guns, but stating something needs to be done. Why are these types of killings being commited against kids?

    I would love to see someone use a bathtub to commit mass murder against kids or anyone else.

    The only thing I can see is the ban of assault rifles. In some states.

    Thank God! Common sense!

    While those who are reacting with the same fear-based ideas that have failed to protect us time and time again are dead wrong, so are the political partisans who serve masters that seek to destroy the very Constitution that they benefit so richly from.

    Yes, something needs to be done! Yes, the mass slaughter of helpless children is intolerable! Something must be done, and mindlessly repeating history to no good effect is not a suitable answer. Anything that suits selfish desires and not the problem at hand is no answer.

    Good to see that someone knows the difference between an accident and mass murder...and is willing to say so.

    I think everyone is in agreement that something needs to be done......pretty obvious

    anyone with more than 2 active brain cells also knows that any type of gun regulation is not the answer..... it has been irrefutably proven time and again that this is not a gun problem

    unfortunately the ways to solve the problem will never occur......... and in this argument the guns always lose...... the ACLU trumps the 2nd amendment every time

    Same old scare tactics. Any gun regulations whatsoever = they're coming in the dead of night to take our guns away :eek: (YAWN)

    Let the NRA play you like a puppet while they laugh at all of the gullible suckers and rake in the millions. Wake up, people. No one is going to try to ban guns in America! It is political suicide. Common sense regulations will not be the end of the world.

    I would think five would be considered "mass murder", don't you?

    And this school shooting Student tells teacher: 'I don't want to shoot you' - Yahoo! News

    With a shotgun, stolen from his brother who owned it legitimately. And the guns at Sandy Hook? Stolen from his mother, a legitimate owner. She paid the ultimate price for her carelessness and not getting her son the help he needed, as did the children in this tragedy. If she had lived, she should have been put on trial, not every gun owner in the United States.

    Should all duck hunters now be required to register their guns? Should we ban shotguns? Or just some? And what caliber? I know fathers and sons that go hunting together with shotguns all the time. The kids have their own shotguns, 410 or 20 gauge that their fathers, mothers, uncles grandfathers either passed down to them or bought as a present. The responsible elders will take responsibility with the shotguns, but teach gun safety and responsibility to their children until such time as they are ready to take responsibility for themselves.

    If 43,000 kids are injured in bathtubs every year and 20,000 are injured by guns every year, that would, logically, make bathtubs more dangerous to children. Just saying.
