Is Obama working on gun control under the table?

The Washington Post did a story on Steve Crowley, the White House gun control czar. Crowley is considered to be an expert on regulation and tort law. His approach to gun control appears to be a regulatory one.

According to the article, Jim and Sarah Brady visited Capital Hill on March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan; to push for a ban on "large magazines."

The couple reportedly were meeting with press secretary, Jay Carney, when, according to Sarah Brady, the President came in. She said the President told her he wanted to talk about gun control and "fill us in that it was very much on his agenda."

She went on to say Obama told her, "I just want you to know that we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar."

The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.

    Ohhh no Carpy, I bet you've pissed off another whiny arse Nanny McGovee-loving-liberal... ;o)   Last I checked there weren't caveats, fine print, or additional jargon to the, " the right of the people to keep and bear Arms"....  Siwwwy 2nd Amendment....  It all comes back to the Obamaology of "fundamentally transforming America"
