In campaign for tougher gun laws, Obama and allies work to tilt public opinion

The White House is working with its allies on a well-financed campaign in Washington and around the country to shift public opinion toward stricter gun laws and provide political cover to lawmakers who end up voting for an assault-weapons ban or other restrictions on firearms.

With President Obama preparing to push a legislative agenda aimed at curbing the nation’s gun violence, pillars of his political network, along with independent groups, are raising millions of dollars and mapping out strategies in an attempt to shepherd new regulations through Congress.

But the efforts, designed in large part to counter opposition from the National Rifle Association, face serious political obstacles on Capitol Hill. The NRA spent more than $20 million on federal election campaigns last year, and its lobbying muscle extends from Washington to state capitals around the country.

    A friend sent me this video showing the
    relationship between socialism, marxism, and communism and how democrats and
    Obama all relate. I’m posting it every chance I get. Sorry for length of this video. It speaks a
    serious message!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is an absolutely a must see video. Take the
    time to watch this. It is truly unbelievable. Don’t let your ideology get in
    the way. Keep an open mind. http: //vimeo . com/52009124

    How about we vett or ensure that our president(s) are really natural born US citizens and not an offspring of a NON-US citizen. And not elect a president for a second time that has NOT been vetted.
