Obama Will Do Nothing On Gun Violence

Progressives, pay no mind to President Barack Obama's speech in Newtown. Obama will not push for new gun laws. The best indication of this is Press Sec. Jay Carney's unwillingness to commit President Obama to any gun control legislation.

During his daily briefing Monday, White House press secretary Jay Carney avoided one question after another about the types of legislative proposals the president could support, what kind of timeline he wants to take action within and whether he truly plans to make the issue of gun violence a priority, despite the fact that in four years -- and four shooting massacres later -- the only related bill Obama has signed actually expanded gun laws.

"I don't have a specific agenda to announce to you today," Carney said when asked how Obama plans to translate his Sunday speech into action. "No single piece of legislation, no single action will fully address the problem."

Obama's religion is the Church of Centrist. In Obama's worldview, Fox News is equal to he New York Times. Obama mocked progressives to Sen. Bernie Sanders. The more progressives push for gun control the more agitated Obama will be. Obama ignored progressives in his first term. Obama doesn't need progressives now that he won a se one term.

Another problem is the Republican House. It doesn't matter how many school children die Elected Republicans fear the NRA more than they fear a dangerous individual getting his hands on an AR-15 assault rifle. Obama's lack of passion for gun control will only make it easier for Republicans to ignore the issue.
