Freedom Watch chief Larry Klayman, who founded Judicial Watch and made a name for himself suing Bill and Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and a slew of foreign dictators, is asking Barack Obama to play by the rules in his establishment of a team to advise him on gun control.
Klayman, whose cases against Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have made headlines, became so well-known that a character in the TV series “West Wing,” Harry Klaypool, was based on his work.
Now he’s jumping all over the plan by Obama to have vice president Joe Biden head up a team to offer plans for gun control.
Obama has said a comprehensive approach is needed to reduce the nation’s gun violence – much more than just resurrecting a now-dead ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips.
So he appointed Biden to a working group to look at proposals such as universal background checks for gun buyers, government tracking of the movement of weapons and stiffer penalties.
The reaction follows the massacre in Newtown, Conn., in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza is accused of killing his mother, then going to a nearby school and killing 20 children and another five adults.
Reports confirm White House aides have been collecting information and ideas from gun-control advocates such as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The plan is for the Biden team to make recommendations to Obama this month.
Now Klayman has written to the White House, addressing his letter to “Barack Hussein Obama, President (Designate).”
“On Dec. 19, 2012, you announced the creation of the new Gun Control Task Force, to be headed by Vice President Joe Biden. On Dec. 20, 2012, Vice President Biden met with members of the law enforcement community and other private and/or non-governmental interests for the first meeting of this task force,” Klayman noted.
The task force, he charged, violates federal law.
