It's back: White House talk of new gun control measures

From the transcript of today's White House news briefing with Press Secretary Jay Carney:

 Q    And then totally unrelated to the debt talks, tomorrow is the sixth [sic] anniversary of the Tucson shootings and gun control groups are upset that there’s no action to prevent such an event from happening in the future.  Why not?
        MR. CARNEY:  As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans’ safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights.  That process is well underway at the Department of Justice with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues.  And we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future.
        Q    Any definition of near future?
        MR. CARNEY:  Near and not far into the future.

Tomorrow marks six months since the Tucson shootings. Not the sixth anniversary.
