    http://www.whitehouse.gov/agenda/urban_policy/says:



    "Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent."


    I had heard most of that before, but the childproof guns thing is a new, although unsurprising, point on his gun control agenda. Anyone here researched the Tiahrt amendment? What are the odds of it getting repealed? And am I mistaken or does it already allow trace information for law enforcement in conjunction with a specific investigation?

    That is identical to the statement that was on Change.gov immediately following the election, and identical to the statement that was on websites before the election.


    Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.
    The quoted text is directly from a post I placed on another website on 6nov08.
