Pants On Fire

From the:" Never let a crisis go to waste" file...

WaPo: White House weighs broad gun-control agenda in wake of Newtown shootings
The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.

A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said. (emphasis mine- TBG)
Key law enforcement leaders? Who's that... Holder? Bloomberg?

It will be interesting to see how this all spins up...

But first- a blast from the past...

"When you all go home and you're talking to your buddies and you say, ah 'He wants to take my gun away.'  You've heard it here,  I'm on television so everybody knows it.  I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people's lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won't take your handgun away."

No, we won't take your stuff... We'll just make you a felon for things you already own.

I guess it might be time to trot out this old chestnut and post it:
Last night Air Force One crashed during that crazy thunder storm outside of Chicago into a small farm. The FBI quickly went to investigate, but looking at the crash site they knew there were no survivors.
They looked frantically through the wreckage trying to find President Obama's body, but it was nowhere to be found. There were only a few scattered bodies of Secret Service agents, so maybe Obama didn't died they thought. Maybe he had gotten out and went to get some help.
In the next field over, there was a farmer plowing his field like nothing ever happened. They quickly ran over to him.
FBI Agent: "Excuse me sir, did you see that plane crash over there?"
Farmer: "Yessiree I certainly did".
FBI Agent: "Did you see anyone get up and walk away?"
Farmer: "Nope. I buried them all this morning. Didn't want 'em stinkin' up the place".
FBI Agent: "Did you realize president Barack Obama was on that plane?"
Farmer: "Yep, buried him too".
FBI Agent: "You buried the president?"
Farmer: "Well, he kept saying he was still alive, but you know what a liar he is!"
