in the last 10 years the US gov has taken Americans Jobs/ Taken their money now they are going for their guns. Ya this will end well. Soon the Inflation will run double digits. Homeland security will label many Americans Terrorists in the near future as they gave up liberty for security. The Fall of the Empire under hope and change. you can't write this stuff.

I work with guys from the south and they claim they will go to this level

Taking their guns way would be like taking our hockey sticks away.

During the press conference, the president urged Congress:

  • to ban "military-style" assault weapons such as those used in several recent mass shootings

  • impose limits on ammunition magazines to 10 rounds

  • introduce background checks on all gun sales; currently private sales and some sales at gun shows are exempt

  • pass a ban on possession and sale of armour-piercing bullets

  • introduce new gun-trafficking laws

  • Finally approve the appointment of the head of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives

  • Mr Obama added he would sign a directive so that government agencies can conduct research into gun crime

The last one there--he has to sign a directive authorizing research?

This seems reasonable, I'd love to hear the arguments as to why armour piercing bullets are necessary.
