Obama announces gun policy initiative

[Updated 12:06 pm ET] With the shock and horror from Newtown giving way to anger and calls for action, President Barack Obama announced Wednesday his first concrete steps in addressing the raging debate about gun policy.

Obama said that Vice President Joe Biden will lead an interagency process to develop policy in the wake of the Connecticut elementary school massacre.

Obama said he wants proposals on his desk quickly.

    Everyone on planet Earth knows the stance of CNN with Piers Morgan leading the way. Talk about killing your own ratings! (That was not a pun)
    If you could get beyond your delusal emotions and apply two ounces of intellect – you would see the problem is not the guns. If you want to be gun free Piers Morgan, return to the U.K. (but of course even that does not free you from firearms).
