Obama will “actively support” push for new assault weapons ban

President Obama will “actively support” efforts by Democrats to reinstate a federal ban on assault weapons next year, the White House announced on Tuesday.

Press secretary Jay Carney said the president would back Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) when she introduces legislation at the opening of the next Congress to ban certain assault weapons in the United States.

Carney said the president would also support other gun-control efforts, including legislation to close the so-called “gun show” loophole and prevent the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips.

    The “real” assault weapon is the liberal propaganda media
    and its ideological agenda driven lies..
    An “asault weapon” has selective fire by definition
    and are already banned to the ‘general public’…
    It is capable of both full and semi auto cycle rates…
    Once again the “masses” are sold a lie for statist tyrany reasons..
