New Communique from The White House
Received in this morning's messages.

Quote:Big update on plan to reduce gun violence

The U.S. Senate just took a big step toward reducing gun violence and making the country a safer place. This week, the Judiciary Committee voted to send to the Senate floor four different pieces of legislation that:

Require background checks for all gun sales;

Create new federal offenses for gun trafficking;

Ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition; and

Strengthen safety at schools.
There's a lot more work to do -- even for this legislation to get a vote.

But this is a major step forward.

You've already expressed an interest in this policy discussion, and we're sure you know other folks who are following this debate. Regardless of where you come down on these specific proposals, we're all united in the ultimate goal -- reducing the amount of gun violence in this country and making America a safer place for our kids.

Will you help to make sure that everyone has the latest information by forwarding this message along?

P.S. -- The Vice President talked more about where we are in this fight in a new feature we've just put on the White House website. Check out Being Biden.

Are you sleeping with the enemy?
No. I had sent a number of message to Biden and Obama objecting to the anti-gun program.

This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
