President Obama has named Vice President Biden to head up a Task Force looking into gun violence.
Meanwhile, FOX NEWS wants to shift the attention away from guns and dwell on mental illness.
Here is the link to story on Obama's proposal: http://tiny.cc/blzkpw
Obama wants to put back in place the assault rifle ban that President Bush let expire in 2004. Obama also wants to close the loopholes that allow people to buy guns without proper identification.
FOX NEWS wants to shift the attention away from guns to mental illness based on a Rasmussen poll which indicated most people want to investigate mental illness instead of the over 300 million guns that are in the hands of Americans all across the country.
Experts say the problem with the FOX NEWS approach to the epidemic of gun violence is it doesn't take into consideration the thousands of gun-related deaths from drive-by shootings, domestic violence or robbery which have nothing to do with mental illness.
There are over 3,000 deaths a year from guns and mass killings like what took place in Connecticut last week make up only a fraction of the gun deaths.
FOX NEWS is a staunch advocate of the National Rifle Association (NRA) which has always pointed at anything but guns as a reason for gun violence.
Obama said he wants Congress to act immediately on gun control.
