Krauthammer: ‘Unconstitutional’
gun confiscation ‘would cause
insurrection in the country’ [Video]

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 1/9/2013 8:15:00 PM

On Wednesday’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer acknowledged a link between gun ownership and gun violence, but said Americans would revolt if Congress implemented sweeping, unprecedented gun control legislation. “I think we are going to end up exactly where we started,” Krauthammer said. “We’re probably going to try an assault weapons ban. It will be a little bit tighter, but it didn’t work. It lasted for 10 years … If we had honest debate, the gun owners would admit, ‘Yes of course, guns contribute to homicide.’ … Japan had 11 gun homicides last year.

Comments:
Yet, there are lawmakers that think this sort of act is the solution.

When you hear the word "insurrection," you have to think at least at the ballot box it´ll crush some Democrats.

First, Krauthammer was not talking about the ballot box when he used the word "insurrection."

Second, we are not subjects of a king. We are free men and women. We do NOT have to obey Obama´s "executive orders". Biden said some of the gun control is going to be enacted via executive orders. Obama is NOT our king. We are not his servants and subjects.

So Chuck and by extension (in his mind at least) the American people would be ok w/ constitutional gun control? One has to wonder why the adjective "constituional" was used as a modifier. Would not *any* form of confiscation result in what in god doctor suggests?

What the liberal Democrats really would like to do is legalize most current illicit drugs, and clean out all the convicted drug dealers from federal and state prisons. That would leave a lot of empty cells in those prisons.

Then the liberal Democrats would like to ban the production and sale of all modern semi-automatic firearms in the USA, require the registration of all such firearms now owned by Americans, subject those Americans to a $200.00 tax per firearm, and then subsequently confiscate all those firearms over a period of years. Any American who did not obey those gun registration, tax, and confiscation laws would be subject to arrest, prosecution, and imprisonment.

The result being many American gun owners taking the place of the released drug dealers in American prisons. That is only one way that the liberal Democrats intend to transform America.

You can see why there just might be an insurrection in many parts of the USA.

What the Libscum would have us believe is that the right to keep and bear arms exists because of the Constitution. The reality is that the Constitution exists because of this right. Infringe it and the Republic falls apart because it is no longer legally valid.

Something is going to happen and Obama is intent on making it happen. Has anyone tried to buy a gun or ammo lately. The place I order from has a 3 mo wait on some of the ammo I usually order. The gov´t makes them send notices every couple of weeks to see if I want to cancel my order. No I don´t, in fact I may want to place another one. Don´t kid yourself folks, the libs are empowered by their victory last Nov and they are not going to stop until they take this country down.

Bunch of tough talkers in here... Reality is there is nothing we can do. Most people are weak and soft and will do nothing. Homeland security is already monitoring Facebook and sites like this for "troublemakers"- if any of us try to lead others during this ´insurrection´ those leaders will be evaporated by a drone strike and the revolt will be over before it even gets started.

Insurrection:
1. A rising against civil or political authority; the open and active opposition of a number of persons to the execution of law in a city or state.
2. A rising in mass to oppose an enemy.
Noah Websters 1828 Dictionary

We the People are the Constituted authority,
DC is the servant class, I guess you could say that make the pres the butler. Regardless we will not be in a state of insurrection, DC is and has been for over 150 years.

In an interview posted on the YouTube page owned by the filmmakers of last September’s documentary “The Muslims Are Coming” on Monday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow targeted conservative Ann Coulter and radio host and so-called evangelist Bryan Fischer. Maddow was critical of Fischer and likened him to Coulter, author of "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican," who Maddow insisted wasn’t to be taken seriously as a political player or a pundit, but instead just a comedian. “[A]nn Coulter was revealed not as a political player or even as a pundit, but essentially as a comedian,” Maddow explained.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong.

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
