#1 Biden to oversee White House effort to reduce gun violence grab guns
How about this - allow any pol who wants to grab guns do the collection himself, unarmed, door to door without backup. Lead by example.

#2 Does this mean they aren't serious?

#3 The O admin knows that this will be a fight. They do not want to get any mud on O, so they will let Biden spearhead the effort, and when things go south, Biden will be da man to focus on. You sure as sh*t can't have Holder be point man.....

#4 I assume Slow Joe will lead by example and disarm his Secret Service troop first?

#5 Champ passes the turd to Joe for safe handling. We'd rather not talk about F&F, Benghazi, Mexico ....guns, any guns.

#6 Sheriff Joe will make sure you check your guns when you come to town.

#7 If Biden holds a Gun-press Conference nobody will show up without Vests. Just in case.

#8 You know, this could be interpreted to mean that Obama really isn't serious about gun gontrol, this business of putting Slow Joe in charge.

#10 "I will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts to prevent more tragedies" such as Friday's, the president said.
The Congress be damned! Executive Orders forthcoming.

#11 It would be a LOT more constructive if the Administration put together a special package to improve safety and security at American schools.

#12 Doing nothing but giving the illusion of doing something? This doesn't square with O's gungrabber stance in the past.

#13 Raising taxes is the main game right now. The gun issue is agitprop and distraction, plus battlespace prep for later.

#14 "It would be a LOT more constructive if the Administration put together a special package to improve safety and security at American schools."
There's your problem right there, Raider.
Plus, probably not enough opportunity for graft and corruption. >:-(

#15 Raising taxes is the main game right now
That will probably be the core of the gun grabbing legislation - registration of all guns with a high annual fee for each, plus a high tax on ammo and accessories.

#16 An interesting economic consequence of the fear that the govt will clamp down on guns is that prices have gone exponential, rising by 200-300% since the day before the attack on eBay. People are buying at their Wal-Mart stores and gun shops, so much so that they are running out of stock in many areas and selling for a tidy 3x profit. It should be mayhem for the next month.
