I watch so you don’t have to, so I saw this disturbing news yesterday on the 24/7 insane asylum, MS-NBC. Now, it’s being reported. From Politico:
The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.
“It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).
But Biden did indicate that the remains of the Obama campaign apparatus may be activated in the effort.
“He said that this has been a real focus on the policy and that the politics of this issue, that a strategy on the politics of the issue hasn’t been undertaken yet,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told POLITICO. “He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.”
The executive actions could include giving the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authority to conduct national research on guns, more aggressive enforcement of existing gun laws and pushing for wider sharing of existing gun databases among federal and state agencies, members of Congress in the meeting said.
Note the phrase “the campaign infrastructure is still accessible,” meaning that they intend to use the 3M (Massage and Mobilize Moron) strategy that worked so well in the 2012 presidential election to gin up hysteria among their low-information voters. This time, however, they will be running against not the lame Romney campaign, but the 2nd Amendment community. The Obama campaign deliberately avoided running on that issue in 2012. Why do you think they didn’t have one of these silly sideshows after the Tucson shooting? They didn’t want to stir up the hornet’s nest that they are going to stir up this time. They keep saying that the NRA has lost its political clout, however, they were crucial in helping Scott Walker win his recall election.
So, this is no time to be complacent, Patriots.
