WH, Biden Drop Gun Control, Take Up Mental Health

After failing to pass any gun control at the federal level during 2013, the White House has signaled its intention to lay off guns for a time and focus on mental health. 

Just days before the first anniversary of the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary, Fox News reports Vice President Joe Biden is presenting arguments for the mental health focus. The administration believes there are things they can do in this arena “to prevent future shootings.”

During a December 10th meeting with “parents of Sandy Hook victims” Biden said: “The fact that less than half of children and adults with diagnosable mental health problems receive the treatment they need is unacceptable.”

He said nothing about “assault weapons,” expanded background checks, “high capacity” magazines, or other gun control measures. Nor did he rule out another gun control push by the administration in 2014 or beyond.

For now, however, it appears gun control has gone the way of “Cash for Clunkers.”
