Court Toons: When Is Enough…Enough?

President Obama is launching an administration-wide effort to curb gun violence, underscoring the growing the political consensus over tightening gun restrictions following the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Obama is tasking Vice President Joe Biden, a longtime gun control advocate, with spearheading the effort. In remarks from the White House on Wednesday, Obama will outline a process for pursuing policy changes following the school shooting, though he is not expected to call for specific measures.

The president has vowed to use “whatever power this office holds” to safeguard the nation’s children after Friday’s shooting in Newtown, Conn. where 20 children and six adults were killed by a high-powered, military-style rifle.
