Obama Could Become The First U.S. President To Face A Recall Over Gun Control

Gun control measure by the Obama administration could spark a national movement or campaign to recall Obama and federal legislators.

Washington D.C. - On Tuesday, the White House confirmed that President elect Barack H. Obama has instructed his Cabinet to begin the process to reinstate a ban on the sale of assault rifles in the country. The president's push to reinstate a ban on assault weapons in wake of the Newtown Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre where 20 children and 6 adults were killed by Adam Lanza, 20, who suffered from autism could lead to a recall campaign to oust Obama. President Obama could become the first executive to be recall in the country over the gun control issue, since millions of Americans own one or more weapons who might feel the treat that the government is infringing on their 2nd Amendment right to own weapons.
No doubt, the Republican party would jump on the opportunity to oust Obama from office after a failed attempt in the last November election.
Gun control only serves to further restrict law abiding U.S. Citizens from purchasing weapons of their choice and this type of gun control restrictions are less likely to deter criminals or mentally ill persons from acquiring any weapons on the street to commit a heinous crime as Lanza committed.
The weapons used by Lanza were purchased legally by his mother, Nancy Lanza, 52, who became the first person Adam killed before heading to Sandy Hook to kill unsuspecting victims.
The Pittsburgh school district just became the first district to arm their security people at schools, which Sandy Hook Elementry lacked and made it easy for Lanza to storm into the school, despite an established security system. The system failed because it lacked armed security or an assigned police officer to help prevent a massacre upon defenseless children and school personnel.
Unfortunately months from now, the Sandy Hook massacre will become history and a distant memory as the other 38 previously reported 
massacres in the country have become.
Violence and mass killings have become part of the American way of life and children from early childhood are exposed daily to some type of entertainment depicting violence such as video games, TV movie violence and other avenues easily made available to them. The issue for children is determining and distinguishing reality from fiction.
Today, President Obama is pushing for gun control, but he leaned back when hundreds of assault rifles purchased by straw buyers (buying a weapon for someone else) were allowed by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to cross into Mexico to supply weapons to drug cartels. The ATF monitored multiple gun sales that would end up in the hands of criminal organizations.
Several of those assault rifles monitored by the ATF were tied to two homicides that claimed the lives of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata on Feb. 15, 2011 in Mexico and in Dec. 14, 2010, the reported homicide of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in Arizona. Other multiple homicides committed in Mexico occurred on Jan. 30, 2010 where gunmen from La Linea gang killed 14 students (boys and girls) and wounded 20 others at a birthday party in Villas de Salvacar in Ciudad Juarez were traced to the ATF weapons that were allowed to be imported to Mexico in an attempt to identify cartel leaders engaged in weapons smuggling in 2010.
None of the feds including officials from the ATF involved in the debacle "Operation Fast and Furious" weapons scandal case have ever been prosecuted. Fourteen ATF and U.S. Department of Justice officials received sanctions. 
A lack of accountability concerning the Fast and Furious case continues to prevail in the Obama administration and now they are pursuing a gun control measure.
