#2 As I've said elsewhere - the politicians don't *want* to solve the problem of spree shootings (I refuse to call it 'gun violence') or of 'poverty' or of 'drugs' or of single-parent households or of a failing school system, etc... So we have a continuing 'war on poverty' and a 'war on drugs' and now a 'war on violence'.
The reason is simple - if they actually *solved* the problems then they would not longer have an *issue* they can use to drive their agenda.
Take for example 'gun violence'. Obama and Biden and the rest know full well that gun control will not do anything to stop spree-shootings like in Newtown or Aurora. That is not the real target. The real target is to disarm law-abiding citizens.
The fact that the measures are very likely to *increase* the likelihood of spree-shootings and school-killings is, to them, a *bonus* - and will help drive their next item.
Notice how quickly they came out with their 'steps' after Newtown? Obama had his agenda lined up before Biden even completed his work - _that_ was simply theater. I'm willing to bet they have these measures are drawn up beforehand - just waiting for an incident so they can act. They were waiting -and perhaps praying- for an big school shootings with lots of kids getting killed so they can take advantage of it.

#4 Washington doesn't solve problems, it manages them. Solved problems don't create job security and donations.
It has been said that Champ seems to be doing his best to set us off. Like he's trying to irritate normal Americans for some reason. Not just trample our rights, but insult, embarrass and humiate us in the process. Why? I'd be curious to find out.

#5 If he can't control the 2300 guns he ran to the Mexican drug lords, how does he expect to control the 300 million already in the hands of mostly law abiding citizens?
