WASHINGTON – President Obama will tap Vice President Biden to lead an administration-wide effort looking at gun control and other measures in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting last week.
The move, to be announced shortly before noon on Wednesday, marks the first concrete step by the White House toward possibly crafting new firearms restrictions. Aides told Fox News that the president is not expected to announce any major policy decisions on Wednesday. Rather, he will outline the process for pursuing changes.
Obama and top administration officials have suggested the response to the Newtown, Conn., mass murder could include a range of recommendations, covering everything from mental health to school security. But the focus, given the debate that has accelerated on Capitol Hill in recent days, is likely to be gun control.
Gun control 3.79%
School security 22.08%
Mental health system 43.6%
American culture and entertainment industry 30.52%
WHY ONLY 3% OF PEOPLE SAY GUN CONTROL IS NEEDED YET THEY ARE ADVERTISING IT AS EVIL AND BAD TO OWN A FIREARM AND EVERY NEWS INTERVIEW IS ANTI-GUN YET EVERYONE I TALK TO DONT WANT GUN RESTRICTIONS. AND AS INACCURATE THESE POLLS ARE….WTF? I HOPE THERE IS A MASSIVE PROTEST.
