For example, right now, people on the No-Fly list can walk into a store and buy a gun. That is insane. If you’re too dangerous to board a plane, you’re too dangerous, by definition, to buy a gun. And so I’m calling on Congress to close this loophole, now. We may not be able to prevent every tragedy, but—at a bare minimum—we shouldn’t be making it so easy for potential terrorists or criminals to get their hands on a gun that they could use against Americans.

I thin we already heard the start of this, before the shooting in SN was even cleared. He's going to claim that taking away guns keeps people safe, and that we can't blame terrorists for terror, because we must have done something to them to cause them to react that way. He'll push for a major gun grab, a list calling average Americans terrorists will be revised, groups actually more likely to be terrorists will be protected, and he might toss in hints of suspending elections if things are too tense.
That's my prediction.
You yanks... someone says ''gun control'' you immediately jump to the worst possible conclusion '' they want to take away my god damn guns... ''

He can not without an amendment to the constitution, but is fun to talk about it, even if is just for fun, I wish he could try to do it using his executive power.

Neo, you're the best! But one thing in your stats...are you sure it is ONLY 80 million?
Oh yes, it is. Taking away guns reduces fatalities, that's a simple statistical fact (re-check the graph I presented).
Also, it's totally inacceptable for any civilised person to assume he or she can be the sole judge, jury and executioner of another person.
That is why I try no to say anything when it comes to the bashing of that bill. Because anybody can be in that no fly list.

He will candidly speak about the origins of the extremist problem in the Middle East and acknowledge western imperialism as a primary culprit. Then he will speak of a concentrated effort with a coalition to truly wipe it out. This means "boots on the ground" and a full invasion of regions under the Daesh control.
In other words, I think it will be a confession of wrongdoing on America's behalf and also a declaration of war.
Obama admitting he armed ISIS?
And admitting he was wrong?
From Obama ?......not likely....
Obama is never 'wrong'.
