The new administration's policy on guns, as predicted by many, was unveiled today. From the White House urban policy web page:
Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.It is a sad fact that many gun owners voted for the blind change offered by Obama. If gun owners are to preserve our rights, we must come together and oppose legislation that would strip any right away from any of us. It's going to be a long four years.
