    recent 2nd amendment news www.mcall.com/news/breaking/mc-obama-gun-policies-1219-20121219,0,5784316.story mcall.com biden to head gun policy push after newtown shootings 9:23 am est, december 19, 2012 advertisement washington, dec 19 (reuters) - vice president joe biden will lead an effort to craft policies to reduce gun violence in a plan president barack obama was to lay out wednesday amid calls for action after the massacre of 26 people including 20 children in a connecticut elementary school. obama was not expected to unveil policy decisions but outline how his administration will proceed, white house aides said. the move could signal that he will make the issue a second-term priority and add momentum to a national debate over tighter gun control laws. obama has turned to biden in the past to take a role in high-profile initiatives, including efforts on a deficit-reduction compromise with congressional republicans in 2011. the vice president will join obama for the announcement in the white house briefing room at 11:45 a.m est (1645 gmt). biden's mission - to coordinate a strategy among government agencies in the wake of the newtown, connecticut shootings - comes days after the mass murder that has generated a national outcry for greater efforts to stem gun violence. friday's massacre was the fourth shooting rampage to claim multiple lives in the united states this year. the president demanded changes to the way the united states deals with gun violence at a memorial service in newtown on sunday. obama said he would "use whatever power this office" holds to prevent such tragedies in the future. gun control has been a low priority for most u.s. politicians due to the widespread popularity of guns in america and the clout of the national rifle association, the powerful gun industry lobby. the constitutional right to bear arms is seen by many americans as set in stone, and even after mass shootings, politicians have tiptoe

    what do power equipment technicians do? what are the working conditions? how much can i earn? what will i work on? when a piece of equipment breaks down, mechanics use various techniques to diagnose the source and extent of the problem. the mark of a skilled mechanic is the ability to diagnose mechanical, fuel, and electrical problems and to make repairs quickly. quick and accurate diagnosis requires problem-solving ability and a thorough knowledge of the equipment's operation. some jobs require minor adjustments or the replacement of a single item, but a complete engine overhaul could require hours to disassemble the engine and replace worn valves, pistons, bearings, and other internal parts. some highly skilled mechanics use specialized components and the latest computerized equipment to customize and tune motorcycles and motorboats for racing. hand tools are the most important work-related possessions of mechanics. small engine mechanics use wrenches, pliers, and screwdrivers on a regular basis. mechanics usually provide their own tools, although employers will furnish expensive power tools, computerized engine analyzers, and other diagnostic equipment. computerized engine analyzers, compression gauges, ammeters and voltmeters, and other testing devices help mechanics locate faulty parts and tune engines. this equipment provides a systematic performance report of various components to compare against normal ratings. after pinpointing the problem, the mechanic makes the needed adjustments, repairs, or replacements. small engines also require periodic service to minimize the chance of breakdowns and to keep them operating at peak performance. during routine maintenance, mechanics follow a checklist that includes the inspection and cleaning of brakes, electrical systems, fuel injection systems, plugs, carburetors, and other parts. following inspection, mechanics usually repair or adjust parts that do not work properly or replace unfixable parts. motor
