    White House asks police for help in shaping gun control policy

    The White House recruited national law enforcement leaders on Thursday to help shape a response to last week’s school shootings in Connecticut, hoping to use the credibility of America’s police officers to build support for measures curbing the spread of assault weapons.Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. met with a dozen leaders of police and sheriff’s organizations, including police chiefs from Pennsylvania, Florida, Maryland and Virginia, as he kicked off a task force to develop proposals by next month. By enlisting police officers, the White House hoped to blunt criticism by conservatives wary of gun regulations.“You’re the first group that I wanted to speak with” after being assigned by President Obama to produce a plan to reduce mass killings, Mr. Biden told the group during a few minutes of remarks in front of reporters. “I want to hear your views because for anything to get done, we’re going to need your advocacy. We’re going to need your advocacy with law enforcement organizations in this country.”

    Well, Chiefs and other politicans will abide, the NORMAL police/deputies will use sound judgement in what they decide their response to a political act by the left wing.

    Why don't they ask the cops on the beat instead of other politicians.

    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    The headline is misleading.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    If ya ask me (and I know you didn't), if you want a new gun control policy, the first step, get a big paper-shredder and the old gun control policy...
