FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- As we pass the six-month anniversary of the tragic Tucson shooting, multiple press reports indicate the Obama administration is planning to unveil new, but unspecified, gun control initiatives.

At a Thursday briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans’ safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights. That process is well underway at the Department of Justice with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues. And we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future.”

Carney provided no further details on the initiatives, but he isn’t the only one saying something is in the works.

According to a related article on NPR.org, U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) said, “I have spoken to the president. He is with me on [gun control], and it’s just going to be when that opportunity comes forward that we’re going to be able to go forward.” And longtime anti-gun activist Sarah Brady has said that in March, the president told her “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control] … We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

Rest assured we’ll report any significant developments in the weeks ahead.

      When will anti-war liberal democrats realize that the Obama Presidency has created more guns, and sold some of them with taxpayer money to violent mexican drug gangs, then any other President could have ever hoped to do.

    2. Who are these “stakeholders”. Brady, Boxer, Schumer, Pelosi, Daley, Bloomberg, Clinton and who else? It sure as hell isn’t the American People.

    3. I guess Obummer and Holder aren’t done shitting on the Constitution. Since their plan with fast and furious blew up in their faces. Now we will have “gun control by fiat”. If those two asshats are trying to start something they are well on their way.

    4. Obama and his evil cabal have been the best salesmen firearms and ammo companies could ever hope for…

      Folks, I don’t worry about Obama and his ilk taking guns from us, they can’t do it unless WE allow it…

      How long has the U.S. military been fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan? How much success have they had in disarming them??

      Do you see what I mean? They only hurt us if we ALLOW them to…

      It’s THAT simple!

      Seems like I read somewhere that Pelosi AND Scummer have concealed carry permits. Why is that? If they feel so strong in their ideologies, they wouldn’t feel the need to carry those evil murderous implements of destruction. I mean, I slapped my Glock really hard the other night..tried real hard to make it mad..but it wouldn’t get up and fire at me.

    6. To this point, gun owners have relied upon passive resistance to the illegal and unconstitutional encroachments on our rights. Political and legislative efforts have met with considerable success in recent years so I urge all of us to stay the course. Politicians do need to be reminded, however, that the Citizens of the United States, unlike peoples in any other nation, retain the ability to turn passive resistance into active resistance.

      I am a retired police officer and I have one question to ask Bloomberg,Schumer and the rest of the politains who have armed body guards with them 24/7 Would they walk in NYC or Chicago or any high crime city WITHOUT thier armed body gaurds? I WOULD SAY THEY WOULD NOT AND THEY WANT US TO WALK AROUND UNABLE TO DEFEND OURSELVES WITH A LEGAL FIREARM.
