Obama Finally Gets It Over Guns Laws

Another mass shooting in a country where guns are easily accessible and controlled by crazy stupid guns laws.
The President said 'communities have had to endure tragedies like this too many times in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun. We have to recognise that this type of violence does not happen in other countries. It doesn't happen in other places with this kind of frequency' and then he added the bit that has me scratching my head.
'It is in our power to do something about it'.
As the President, HE has the power to do something about it especially as he is due to hand in the White House key shortly and doesn't have to appease anyone to gain votes.
Sure the right wing gun-nuts will shout and bitch and moan and throw up half the second amendment (and conveniently not mention the part about a well regulated militia) and i am sure some even nuttier ones will say that the solution is having even more guns but if the President can't do anything about it, who can?
He could whack a massive tax on weapons or be sneaky and whack it on the ammunition, introduce a
gun licence and charge an extortionate fee or even just go all out and make the regulations for owning a gun so tight that it becomes more of a hassle to own one then not.
What i expect will happen is nothing just as happens after every mass shooting because if nothing changed after 20 children were shot dead in an elementary school, it won't change over nine dead in a church and the crazies with the guns win again.

You like the president are allowed your opinion. At least his is educated about the many Supreme Court decisions... By the way, only India and China have more people than America and they don't allow gun ownership so of course we have more of this than anybody.

So not allowing gun ownership is the answer isn't it?
