The Washington Post did a story on Steve Crowley, the White House gun control czar. Crowley is considered to be an expert on regulation and tort law. His approach to gun control appears to be a regulatory one.
According to the article, Jim and Sarah Brady visited Capital Hill on March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan; to push for a ban on “large magazines.”
The couple reportedly were meeting with press secretary, Jay Carney, when, according to Sarah Brady, the President came in. She said the President told her he wanted to talk about gun control and “fill us in that it was very much on his agenda.”
She went on to say Obama told her, “I just want you to know that we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
More sleight of hand from the most transparentest president evah!
The fact is, this is how Obama works. Deception and trickery are who he is and what he does. Witness how he is handling the DISCLOSE action. Congress declined to pass it with Dem majorities, so he is trying an end around the entire democratic process by imposing DISCLOSE via executive order. State right to work laws unravel union power, so his NLRB attacks Boeing to upend those right to work laws. Congress declines to pass card check, so his administration sues states that block card check. His Fish & Wildlife Dept is even getting poised to go after domestic oil drilling.
This president has figured out that the majority of Americans don’t support his agenda. And he is not about to let that stop him.
