F$ck You to all the people calling gunowners paranoid.
"I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals," Obama said.
Bypassing Obama's usual tactic of pretending to speak for people he can't comprehend, I notice he doesn't refer to the Citizen who wouldn't harm anyone with the gun. Only soldiers and "criminals", but NOT a law-abiding Man or Woman.
His remarks remind me of something.....Oh Ya!
The 2nd Amendment.

"These steps [background checks (duh Obama) and prevention of people who the govt. deems mentally unfit] shouldn't be controversial. They should be common sense," Obama said, though without elaborating too specifically on measures of enforcement.
Oh will all you Leftists just stop with the pretense of being "reasonable" and "sensible" and applying "common sense" when you propose NOTHING that will prevent the next mass shooting and come out shrieking, accusing, attacking, and demanding even while people are still being treated for their injuries.

"White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obama did not have plans to push for new legislation in light of the Colorado shooting."
Gee. Like anyone really thinks that Obama's push for gun control legislation would be based on this shooting. The shooting would just be a means to an end.
