Democrats call for strict gun control after Colorado shootings

As expected, Democrats in Congress today are calling for strict gun control measures in the aftermath of the Colorado shootings in which a deranged assailant claiming to be "the Joker" killed 12 people and wounded 58 in a crowded movie theater during a screening of the new "Dark Knight" film.

The alleged shooter, James Holmes, was incorrectly identified by Brian Ross of ABC News as a member of the Tea Party. Ross later issued an apology and a correction.

Gun control proponents in the media immediately jumped into action to use the shootings as a tool for pushing the anti-gun agenda. But as this reporter predicted in an article Friday, if past incidents such as these are any indication, it would not be long until the usual firearms critics in Congress would begin to issue calls for strict gun control measures.

Right on cue, those critics did exactly that today.

Media exploits Colorado shooting to push gun control

No sooner had alleged shooter James Holmes pulled the trigger killing 12 movie goers at the new Batman film in Colorado this morning than the mainstream media had jumped into action blaming gun owners and pushing for new gun control laws.

The incident took place in Aurora, Colorado at a cinema that was introducing the new film at a special midnight showing.

CNN's Piers Morgan tweeted that the shooting illustrates that "America has got to do something about it's gun laws" and that it should be 100,000 times harder to buy a gun.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has a reputation of being a gun control fanatic, asked, "What are Obama and Romney going to do about guns?"

CLO further blows the whistle on the anti-free speech crowd in Congress that wants to shove the Disclose Act down our throats. I am seriously thinking it is time to change the law to allow law enforcement to march down the middle of the aisle of the House and Senate and place the Commie-Nazis in cuffs, and haul them straight to jail pending trial for treason.

Republicans say new ATF video threatens whistleblowers

The ATF has issued a new video designed to warn agency whistleblowers not to go "outside the chain of command" to report alleged illegal activity by the agency. The warning contains a strongly worded caution that there will be "consequences" for those who fail to obey the new directive.

According to Fox News today, ATF Acting Director B. Todd Jones issued a stern warning to whistleblower agents about going straight to Congress with their charges. The film, and the warning from the director, are said to be having a chilling effect on the willingness of ATF agents to come forward with their knowledge of illegal activity.

Republicans in Congress immediately jumped into action, charging that the Jones warning is a "threat." Federal law prohibits agencies of the government from threatening retaliation against employees who blow the whistle on illegal or unethical activity.

Justice Department withheld key Fast and Furious memo

A report on Tuesday in the Washington Guardian indicates that the Justice Department (DOJ) withheld key Fast and Furious memos from Congress concerning ATF whistleblowers who alerted reporters of deep corruption revolving around the scheme to place U.S. guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

The memos date back to February of 2011 when DOJ officials notified ATF supervisors, warning them not to retaliate against agents who blow the whistle on illegal activity.

But as the memos were being circulated the DOJ was informing Congress that no illegal activity had occurred and that no "gunwalking" had taken place in the Fast and Furious operation...

Obama tells CBS News he expected more Republican cooperation

During a comprehensive interview that CBS News has gradually broadcast over several days, President Obama stated that he expected more cooperation from Republicans than he got when he took office.

The segment of the interview in which Obama lamented the supposed lack of GOP cooperation was aired today on CBS This Morning.

"My expectation was that we would see more cooperation," Obama stated.

However, as this reporter noted in a fact check article Sunday, the president did not exactly come to Washington in a bipartisan mood, ready to meet Republicans halfway...

Obama says Washington 'feels as broken as it did 4 years ago'

In an appearance on CBS Sunday Morning today, President Obama stated that Washington "feels just as broken as it did four years ago" when he first assumed the presidency.

Admitting that he feels "frustrated" by his inability to change the atmosphere in the nation's capital, Obama stated that there is "enough blame to go around for that."

Digging deeper into the dynamics of Washington politics over the last six years, it is difficult to find factual justification for Obama's contention that there is shared blame for the gridlock and hyper partisanship.
