In 2008, Joe Biden tried to temper fears that Barack Obama was in favor of gun control, by saying, "I guarantee you Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns, so don’t buy that malarkey. Don’t buy that malarkey. They’re going to start peddling that to you." Biden said he owns "two guns" and that "if [Obama] tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem. I like that little over and under, you know? I’m not bad with it. So give me a break. Give me a break," according to an ABC report from the time.
Comments: I grit my teeth when a public figure talks down to his audience by using "ain´t" and "gonna" when that person normally speaks correctly.
He will send about 50 of his Brown Shirts, fully armed with the best military grade body armor and weapons that our tax dollars will buy, to hold fully automatics weapons on our wives and kids while giving us 1 minute to turn over every weapon and piece of ammunition we own.
You know our military won´t do it. But his Brown Shirt volunteer militia (made up of former New Black Panther and La Raza members) will be more than happy to visit all those ´´whitey houses´´ to collect our weapons.
And if they have to kill a bunch of our wives and kids to get our weapons, no problem. They will just be enforcing all the new knee-jerk laws that Congress is about to pass.
This country died on 11-6-2012. Why expect anything else???
#7, poor scenario. The people will simply fight back. Are they forcing their way into people´s home to retrieve their weapons. They would have to suspend the constitution and marshall law the place. The jig is up if the first thing they want is guns. Or maybe they will start by offering free phones to those who didn´t get one. With collection of there will be blood. Lots of it. Lots of dead brownshirts. They have no honor so they will not want to die. We learned our lesson from castro and hitler and how they stole their respective nations. It´s the last frontier and madness to risk it.
Ironically VP Biden did not lie when he said that "Obama Ain´t taking my Shotguns" because the liberal Democrats have bigger fish to fry. Essentially what Senator Feinstein and other liberal Democrats intend to do is ban all "assault weapons" that they define as any semi-automatic firearm, rifle or handgun, that could possibly accept a clip or magazine containing more then 10 rounds of ammunition, that in reality would encompass just about every modern firearm in America.
If that were to actually happen, besides taking away the right of hundreds of millions of law abiding Americans to purchase a modern firearm, much of the American small arms industry would be wiped out, as they could not survive on just government contracts that Obama also wants to slash, thus eliminating thousands of well paying US jobs.
You have to figure that once that happened, that the political blow back against politicians, both Democrat and Republican who voted for such a ban would be fierce in next years primary and congressional elections, as happened the last time the liberal Democrats pushed through a ban on certain semi-automatic firearms.
Yo...yo...If American gun manufacturers think they could make a buck on selling the American gun owners down the river....LOOK OUT DUDES!!!! In 1968 Tom Dodd, US Senator from Connecticut, with the backing of the New England gun manufacturers, supported the 1968 Gun Control Act because one section forbade the importation of military surplus firearms, thereby reducing completion for the local scum gun makers. Further, Bill Ruger, in my opinion, was one of the biggest supporters of the 1968 GCA, and beat the tub for GUN CONTROL!!! I have never owned a Ruger since. So , if Smith and Wesson or Ruger, can retrench and take over the American market by making and selling just revolvers, instead of semi autos.....you can bet your life those pigs will sell the consumers down the river. They did it before...they´ll do it again!!!
Yo....yo...Further the scum local gun makers backed the "steel shot" legislation against all reason because they knew that the shot gunners would have to buy new expensive shot guns to shoot the new steel shot. Never underestimate the greedy filthy pigs because they will sell our gun rights out for a few bucks!!!!
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul is traveling to Detroit this week armed with an ambitious plan to save the bankrupt city. In an interview with The Daily Caller on Wednesday, the Kentucky Republican senator previewed his trip to Michigan, where he will present his ideas for an “economic freedom zone” to the Detroit Economic Club on Friday. Paul acknowledged his idea is similar to those of former Rep. Jack Kemp’s “enterprise zones,” which similarly used incentives to encourage private sector investment in urban areas. “What we’ve done is taken enterprise zones and really given them enterprise zones on steroids,” Paul told TheDC. The plan
Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve looked at the various polls on Barack Obama’s performance and noted the dramatic decline in approval on both policy areas and personal qualities. Today, the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake and Sean Sullivan take a look at the former, and inform readers that Obama is in much bigger trouble than just dropping below 40% overall approval: Recent polling from the Pew Research Center and Quinnipiac University has shown Obama’s approval rating on almost all major issues plunging into the 30s — below even his lowest-ever overall approval rating, which has stood around 40 percent
Australian researchers said Thursday they had established the existence of vast freshwater reserves trapped beneath the ocean floor which could sustain future generations as current sources dwindle. Lead author Vincent Post, from Australia´s Flinders University, said that an estimated 500,000 cubic kilometres (120,000 cubic miles) of low-salinity water had been found buried beneath the seabed on continental shelves off Australia, China, North America and South Africa.
Washington -- Donald Rumsfeld´s most famous quote has to do with whether there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. But he might as well have been a reporter talking about Obamacare. "There are known unknowns," said Rumsfeld back in February of 2002. "That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don´t know we don´t know." When it comes to Obamacare and the frantic White House effort to right the listing website meant to bring private health insurance to the uninsured, there´s a lot more we know we
Marco Rubio’s leadership PAC is launching a six-figure ad buy for Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)’s Senate bid in Arkansas, the second time he’s aided a sitting senator or Senate candidate this year. The group, Reclaim America PAC, will put six figures into ads across Arkansas beginning Thursday that focus on Cotton’s military background. The buy was first reported by the Wall Street Journal and confirmed by POLITICO. Cotton is running to oust incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor in what’s expected to be one of the most competitive Senate races of 2014.
WASHINGTON — For the past decade, Texas has been at war with Washington. Gov. Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott have fought the federal government on health care, voting rights and environmental regulations. On spending, new programs and regulations, federal officials have been hard-pressed to find friendly ears in the Lone Star State. Now, with Perry fading from the state’s political scene, the 2014 contest for governor could determine whether Texas takes a different approach to the White House and the federal government. Abbott, the likely Republican contender for governor, promises much of the same, saying he would make
I do my fair share of carping about Washington’s “elites,” say, for their free-spending ways or their reckless adventurism abroad. That said, when I speak to family and friends back in the Heartland, I usually dissent from at least some of the common epithets thrown at the inhabitants of the Beltway who claim to govern America. “Stupid,” “dumb,” “idiots,” and sometimes “clueless” are the typical pejoratives used. From my perspective only the last one is accurate. The denizens of Washington may live in an impenetrable bubble, but they are actually quite smart, well educated, top of their class, and… clueless
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
