Obama Announces Plan To Curb Gun Violence

  • 0

Obama Announces Plan To Curb Gun ViolencePresident Obama today, in a televised press conference, called for a gun violence task force, a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and universal background checks for those buying guns. Obama is using 23 executive actions and various legislative proposals to enact this, potentially the most ambitious gun-control initiative in decades. The task force, led by Vice President Biden, will propose policies to curb gun violence by the end of January 2013. This comes in response to the Newtown elementary school massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults this past December.

Obama said, “Along with our freedom to live our lives as we will comes obligation to allow others to do the same […] I will put everything I’ve got into this, and so will Joe. But the only way we’ll change is if the American people demand it.” TC mark

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie
