He's more than keeping his word!
He is NOT messing around! Nor should he be!
In the wake of a 20-year-old gunman's massacre of 27 people, 20 of them children, at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut Friday afternoon, President Barack Obama promised the devastated community that "if there is even one thing that we can do" to prevent something like this happening again that "we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try."
And he as ALREADY started doing just that, by announcing today that Vice President Joe Biden will be spearheading a multi-agency group to tackle the problem of widespread gun violence in the country…with proposals ready to be pushed into legislation by JANUARY!

There is a heated discussion circulating among Americans - and the global community - concerning gun control and the place automatic weapons have in a modern society, striving (hopefully) for peaceful co-existence.
The now infamous Dark Knight Rises mass-murderer James Holmes so easily obtained his instruments of death - an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remmington 12-guage shotgun and 2 40-caliber glock handguns - LEGALLY from gun stores and purchased mass amounts of ammunition on-line.
In response to the horrific crime that took place Friday in Aurora, the lovely ladies over at The View touched upon the volatile issue of gun control - or lack thereof - in the United States.
Watch this important debate in action (above)!
While "the right to bear arms" is guaranteed by the constitution, you have to

After the horrific Dark Knight killings where James Holmes shot 12 dead and injured 59 using a LEGALLY purchased AR-15 assault rifle, Remmington 12-guage shotgun and 2 40-caliber glock handguns, the nation-wide debate on gun control has re-ignited with a ferverence.
NYC Mayor Bloomberg, who is renowned for enforcing strict gun control laws, appeared on CBS' Face The Nation and called upon President Obama and Gov. Romney to publicly provide concrete plans of action in regards to gun control, rather than the generic, vague statements they've recently been issuing.
Check out Bloomberg's commendable request (above).
People may kill people, but it's a hell of a lot harder to kill people - especially a whole bunch of people - without a gun!

Now that another horrible massacre has scarred the United States, a lot of people are fed up with the nation's lack of proper gun control.
Take Mayor Michael Bloomberg for example. New York City's head of political affairs has had enough. In light of the tragic event, he released a statement calling for President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney's attention:

Amber heard the amazeballs news??
Johnny Depp just agreed to star in Wes Anderson's next film, The Grand Budapest Hotel!
Nothing like signing on with this summer's arthouse phenom to take your mind off a recent breakup!!
We don't know
much anything about TGBH but, if forced to place a wager at gunpoint, we'd bet the film centers around a quirky group of morosely existential white people who are entrenched in some sort of familial drama… or Bill Murray.
And then we'd cry, because we don't like guns in our face.
Anderson's films might be

A 10-year-old in Aiken, South Carolina, pulled a 9-mm handgun on a woman who joked that she was going to steal his candy on Halloween.
The 28-year-old woman told authorities that she recognized the boys when she joked around with them about their candy.
That obviously didn't go over very well because they pulled a gun on her and called her a "b*tch." Luckily, the handgun wasn't loaded, however the boys did have ammunition on them.
Oh yeah, by the way, the 10-year-old's brother had a gun too. Both guns have been recovered by police who say that the kids got the guns from their grandfather without his permission.
This is getting extremely out of control. We need better gun control in this country!
