Whew!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- President Barack Obama will announce on Wednesday that Vice President Joe Biden will lead an effort to come up with policies to address gun violence amid calls for action following the massacre of 26 people including 20 children in a Connecticut elementary school last week.
For a moment, I was afraid they might do something. Now I feel better.

UPDATE:

"I guarantee you Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey," Biden said to voters during a campaign stop in Castlewood, Virginia on September 20. "Don't buy that malarkey. They're going to start peddling that to you."

Bastard malarky peddlers!

Certainly you don't mean to imply that the folksy reassurances of Mister Biden were disingenous, or merely said for political effect prior to an election knowing full well that Mister Obama would pounce on an opportunity to further restrict gun ownership at the first tragic opportunity. Why, that would make him nothing more than a common politician.
