On an appearance on FOX News Sunday, conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said that “there are some limitations that can be imposed” on the Second Amendment and predicted “future” cases would come before the Supreme Court concerning gun control in which gun restrictions would have to be weighed “very carefully.”
Gun control is politically toxic for Democrats. Democrats in the Senate, despite the urging of their liberal cohorts to not let the tragic Aurora shootings go to waste in pushing for gun control, chickened out and said gun control measures will not be introduced.
President Barack Obama, a day after telling the National Urban League that he would push for a ban on assault weapons, abruptly changed his tune and flip-flopped. His White House spokesman said the Obama administration would not pursue gun control legislation last week.
