Read the 23 executive orders. Not impressed! Where is the dialog between state and federal government on a strict penelty for criminals who use firearms, more importantly "assault weapons?"
Why does the federal government ( Obama-Biden) refuse to see that this is the whole problem? Every state has a different set of laws that penelize criminals for use of firearms, these are usually the first thing bartered away by lawyers before sentencing! At least two of these executive orders deal with mental health issues and the sharing of information dealing with firearms etc. Where is the recomendation for severe punisment for criminals using a firearm in a crime? Every state has set laws dealing with criminals and firearms. Why not make it so costly to the criminal if he uses a gun in a crime. Convicted of using a firearm in a crime, 25 to life, commit murder with a gun, death penelty. Make it universal in all states and take the plea bargin where guns are off the table, not an issue. You used a gun your convicted you go to jail.
The subject of security in schools was so barley touched it was comical. I can defend my self anywhere but my children need to feel and be safe in school. Five hundred million dollars is nowhere enough. Make security in our schools a federal issue! Because of Newtown, many schools have hired armed guards, which aready eats into a limited budget, upgrade the schools and hire trained people to make sure our schools are secure and make that their only job. They shouldn't be baby sitters, their only job should be security.
I can't believe that we have these minds in government and they can't see the solutions when it's right in front of their noses.
