Obama hopes to enact new
gun-control measures in 2013

The Hill, by Meghashyam Mali

Original Article

Posted By:Sinatra5, 12/30/2012 12:08:38 PM

President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.“I'm going to be putting forward a package and I'm going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I'm going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

“I think there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can´t have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids,” said Obama.

Yeah, well - we have someone with severe psychological problems in the White House currently - particularly if he thinks any ´law´ will do *anything* to curtail ´high capacity weapons´ availability. The ´toughest city gun law in the US´ hasn´t done a damn thing to counteract that (apparently unworthy of Obama-comment) slaughterhouse known as ´Chicago´...

Two points noted elsewhere - the Second Amendment does *not* require the consent of the current administration, nor ´public sentiment´ - and any attempt to curtail it outside of the states ratifying a Constitutional amendment - is more or less treason.

And it also seems that ´armed civilians´ are approximately 4 times less likely to shoot the nearest unarmed civilian in a ´criminal encounter´ - than the average cop on the street.

It´ll be very interesting to see where the Obama Clown Posse tries to take America next. Venezuela comes to mind...

0bama wants gun control, yet he sends his two daughters to a very expensive private school that has many armed guards, with REAL guns and REAL bullets. And all the Hollywoods are crying for gun control, yet they all have armed guards with real guns and real bullets. It is just the common folk that should not be allowed to have a weapon, or certainly not a weapon for which the government has not registered and gotten our finger prints, and the next thing 0bama and the dems will want is confiscation of our guns. Having this mother´s guns registered with her finger prints on file would not have stopped her psychotic son from doing what he did. 0bama has no common sense.

Diwitted Diane Feinstein was on Fox this morning, and she is proposing the banning of various firearms, and a reachback to current owners of such firearms, forcing them to come forward and register those firearms, much like Canada tried to do.
The Canadian government said that its registration program would cost a few million dollars, but instead, it cost a few billion dollars. And many Canadians simply refused to register their guns - guns that are tools, in many parts of Canada.
So Canada gave up on its registration program.

Everybody does believe that dangerous nut jobs should not be able to get their hands on any sort of firearm, but the Obama Administration and the liberal Democrats trying to use that fact to take away the rights of 300 million law abiding Americans, because of the criminal actions of a few nut jobs, by banning almost all modern firearms is an extreme political overreach that must be vigorously opposed.

Not only would such an overreaching action take away the rights of law abiding Americans to own modern firearms, but it would also wipe out much of the US small arms industry, and the industries that supply all manner of parts and accessories, as they could not survive by just bidding on a diminishing number of military contracts, thus also putting thousands of well paying American jobs on the chopping block.

For all the ´there is no difference between the parties,etc.´ non voters who elected this monster again, behold your work. B.O. must be making a mental note, his administration didn´t have to force those AZ gun dealers to sell truck loads of guns to Mexican drug gangs, after all. Instead of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and at least 2 American Border Patrol agents, all the new fascists needed was a deeply psychotic murderer to attack a gun free school in CT.

If you don´t own a gun or even if you are cheering all the current plans to put an unlimited government boot on every American who owns a gun, just wait. YOUR turn will come very soon. You have no idea what your ´offense´ might be, but you will be guilty. It won´t matter what party you are or who your connections are. Once you get on the wrong side of unlimited, unchecked, power, you are simply dead. Read a book, morons.

Like me you were probably watching the president’s gun control speech today.

Guessing that would be Harry Reid mostly. Last week the president was ready to go all in on the executive order scenario. Confiscation was going to be in play. Then the backlash came and it forced Obama to back off.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
