Biden ‘guarantees’ January passage of ‘strict gun control legislation’

Mayor Thomas Menino welcomes President Obama to Boston

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” that President Obama will pass strict gun control legislation by the end of the month, according to the Boston Herald.

“He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino said. “They’re going to get it done.”

Menino, a proponent of strict gun control, co-chairs Mayors Against Illedal Guns with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Referring to the rash of urban young gang violence, “I understand the second amendment, the right to bear arms,” he said. “But I don’t understand how young kids should be able to get guns.”

Menino added that because the president is in his last term, he has “no excuse not to pass strong (gun control) legislation.”

“It’s time to get this moving and moving quickly,” Menino said. “Let’s do it now.”

    Because young gang bangers abide by the laws. Thats ridiculous. It is already illegal for them to have them so we should make it more illegal. Thatll work.

      Bangers get caught with a scrubbed handgun and do 6-12 months. Give them 20 years! NOT increase gun laws! There are enough on books allready. If they are a convicted felon with an illegal Firearm=20 years. Oh and by the way, Politician caught with hand in till=20 years and lose of all pensions! See that stop fast enuogh!

    The U.S. has averaged more than 18 gun deaths every day since the Newtown School shooting.

    If outlawing guns works so well maybe we should outlaw Heroin & Crack.

    And so Joe and Mayor mumbles knows, we are going to fight back! The NRA and law abiding citizens that own guns aren't the problem. Government is the problem. Not going after those who commit the crime is the problem. But taking away the 2nd amendment isn't not the solution. It is just the evil attempt of the overbearing Government to strip away more rights and freedoms of pure Constitutionalist. I just hope when we finally get a real Conservative in office that they go after these law breaking liberals and put them behind bars for treason.

    The Firearms Act of 1934 was not about gangsters. It was about a government who was afraid of the unemployed and angry WWI veterans who were experienced with guns. The current government is taking defensive action against preppers, TEA partyers, and others. The popularity of the Congress is at a low.

    The Innocents of Sandy Hook are being exploited.

    To Electedface,

    Your YouTube video is nothing but propaganda. We need more guns, not less. Almost without exception, anyplace that is known to have more guns has less crime. It is time to allow the average citizen the option to carry if they choose to do so without all the governmental bull getting in their way.

    Does Dirty Joe even know how our government works!!!!!!! Obumma CAN'T pass anything, it's not within his authority.

    He can only sign or veto a bill that has passed congress.

    I guarantee that Bostonians have had enough, enough of Mayor Medici, his cronies and hacks. Obama does not respect our Constitution and by 2016, I predict that he'll suspend elections, having created the workers&farmers paradise. As posted elsewhere, Yanks in Massachusetts did not take kindly to the attempt to disarm them in Lexington, Concord and feisty Charlestown!
