La Casa Blanca apuesta por la ambigüedad en el control de armas



The Washington Times:
The White House indicated Friday that President Obama hasn't changed his position on gun-control laws in the immediate aftermath of the mass shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo.

Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One in Florida, White House press secretary Jay Carney reiterated Mr. Obama's position on guns, saying "the president believes we need to take common-sense measures that protect the Second Amendment rights of Americans while ensuring that those who should not have guns under existing laws do not get them."

"We're making progress in that regard in terms of improving the volume and quality of information on background checks," Mr. Carney said.
Chicago sabe que el control de armas es una mala política electoral. Al Gore descubrió de la peor manera (perdiendo su propio estado) que apoyar abiertamente el control de armas te puede costar las elecciones, y el recuerdo de la derrota permanece vivo en las filas demócratas.
