In the wake of the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, President Obama plans to implement more executive orders and reiterated his commitment to strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows, CBS reported Tuesday.
“The president supports, as do an overwhelming majority of Americans, common-sense measures to reduce gun violence,” spokesman Jay Carney said.
Obama has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency.
Only hours after a dozen people were gunned down at the Navy facility, and while police still were treating the scene as a crime investigation site Monday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., issued a statement calling for more gun controls from Congress.
It said, in part:
“This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons – including a military-style assault rifle – and kill many people in a short amount of time.
“When will enough be enough?
“Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”
Phillip Dennis of the Dallas Tea Party was not surprised at the almost immediate calls for congressional action.
“The left never lets a crisis go to waste,” Dennis told WND. “They capitalize on a grief-stricken American populace to advance their statist agenda. This is a time for mourning and healing, not emotion-based, knee-jerk legislating in response to a tragedy.”
