SPIN METER: Obama steers clear of action on guns
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Barack Obama once said it was a "scandal" that then-President George W. Bush didn't force renewal of a federal assault weapons ban. Now it's Obama himself who's steering clear of that and other politically sensitive gun-control measures, even while calling for a new discussion on weapons and "how we can keep America safe for all our people."
The president asked for the new conversation on gun safety in an opinion column in Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' hometown paper, the Arizona Daily Star, over the weekend. He proposed strengthening and enforcing existing laws requiring gun sellers to perform background checks.
But to the disappointment of gun-control advocates, the president didn't mention the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 - when Congress failed to renew it - even though it barred sales of high-capacity magazines like the one used by Giffords' shooter, and even though Obama was once an outspoken supporter of the ban.
"That rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer's cottage, is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."

If he gets re-elected then I believe he will go after the guns.Right now he's just buying some time to appease his constituents.

let's change back
I seriously don't see him getting another term.
he's done more bad than good,ever his bro's can see that (I hope)
hopefully,voting for any anti-gun legislation is stil political suicide.
the backlash from passing the first AW ban put the supporters out of office,ever since noone wants to touch it if they wanna stay in politics
I kinda like Ron Paul myself, seems like someone that would
be more than willing to neuter the ATF, along with other Gov't. entities like the fed.
