Newsweek: White House to Push Gun Control

To help people visualize, Newsweek used image of Rep Giffords empty seat at SOTU address:

[...]Tuesday night after the speech, Obama adviser David Plouffe said to NBC News that the president would not let the moment after the Arizona shootings pass without pushing for some change in the law, to prevent another similar incident. “It’s a very important issue, and one I know there’s going to be debate about on the Hill.”

The White House said that to avoid being accused of capitalizing on the Arizona shootings for political gain[if the shoe fits..ed], Obama will address the gun issue in a separate speech, likely early next month. He’s also expected to use Arizona as a starting point, but make the case that America’s gun laws have been too loose for much longer than just the past few weeks.[emphasis mine]

Arizona, starting point for Obi One's Immigration nonsense and now gun control.

I heard Rep 'Gabby' Giffords may start to speak soon. Amazingly tough woman, God Bless her & the Dr's who have cared/caring for her. BTW, Neurosurgeon Michael Lemole's parents weren't safe from progressives either: Palm Beach Post Columnist, Jose Lambiet, Slams Parents of Rep. Giffords Doctor for Supporting Tea Party Candidates
