Obama ´actively supportive´
of assault weapons ban

Associated Press, by Staff

WASHINGTON- The White House says President Barack Obama is "actively supportive" of efforts on Capitol Hill to reinstate an assault weapons ban. Obama has long backed the ban, but has failed to push for it throughout his first term. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., plans to introduce legislation to reinstate the ban early next year. White House spokesman Jay Carney says Obama would also support legislation to close the gun show "loophole," which allows people to buy guns from private dealers without background checks. The president has pledged to address gun violence in the coming weeks following Friday´s deadly shooting

Let me guess, ´´assualt weapon´´ is anything this side of a BB gun...

This country truly died on 11-6-2012. Now we just wait for the inevitable implossion of the rotting corpse...

Connecticut has an "assault weapon ban" in place already. The Bushmaster model Lanza used was not legally classed as an "assault weapon".

Why not just revoke the entire Bill of Rights and get it over with?

Make no mistake; Obama and his minions are out to destroy our way of life! These anti-American haters are now in charge thanks to a feckless and irresponsible voting block comprised of special interest groups and illegal aliens! Silent Majority/conservatives, this is no time to back down or remain silent!

They want to ban weapons that look like assault weapons.
Assault weapons are already illegal.
This is like unto banning brown cars.
These communists are fully in the face of the rights of man and the rights of US citizens.

The ignorance of guns is astounding in the media. No news there, but even Fox personnel are equating "assault rifle" and "semi-automatic" either through ignorance or complicity.

Last night O´Reilly repeatedly referred to an "AK 16" until corrected, and gave a grossly inaccurate description of Canada´s gun laws. Canada, by the way, recently trashed the progressive-utopian long-gun registry after it cost taxpayers $2Billion
and never solved one crime or saved one life. That´s a lot of money when you consider the population of Canada is 10% of America.

The fault lies with the lunatic who took a series of conscious decisions leading to many murders. Period. Anyone who tries to take the matter beyond that has his eye on another agenda, on other goals, and is dangerous in his own way, the more so by his hiding his moves.

"War is the remedy our enemies have chosen, and I say give them all they want."

General Sherman was right.

You have to see just what firearms the liberal Democrats will define as an "assault weapon".

From what little Senator Feinstein has already said, it looks like they intend to define an "assault weapon" as being any semi-automatic handgun or rifle that could possibly hold a clip or magazine holding more then 10 rounds of ammunition.

Such a overreaching definition would essentially ban just about all modern semi-automatic handguns and rifles now being sold in the USA, essentially disarming the law abiding population of the USA based upon the criminal actions of several homicidal maniacs.

No doubt the liberal Democrats and their allied anti-gun groups will go for the whole enchilada and ban as many firearms as possible, if they can quickly get a bill moving through the Congress before emotions subside.

With the House of Representatives in Republican hands the liberal Democrats may have a problem passing such a broad gun control bill. The last time the liberal Democrats pushed a gun control bill through they lose big-time in the following election.

If you really believe that the Democrats´ decades-long gun ban/confiscation efforts are about "safety," you may want to remove yourself from the debate.

And stay out of the way. It could get messy.

All the dems & their PC lsm are talking about now is this pointless ban, video games and movies, yet nothing is mentioned about arguably the MOST influential messaging venue to all youths, which is music! The hateful, brutal & vile words & ideas conveyed in the music 0bama apparently favors, along with the entertainers who choose to sing such messages to the youths, receives awards?!!! Why is that? Such music does leave an impression upon young people who listen to it continually, at least as much as & maybe more than games & movies, yet our, ´role model,´ President honors those rude & crude, ´entertainers,´ and their brutal songs, ...even a singer who has used his lyrics to attack the USA! ...And he was an honored guest performer at a Christmas program which 0bama attended recently! What a message!!!

Music influences people and so it too can be used in horrible irresponsible ways which the President of the USA, of all people, should not encourage by honoring it as does 0bama. Statist pols are political opportunists who always seem to attack the Second Amendment instead of addressing authentic needs, ...mental illness and the vile pop culture of brutality which they encourage.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

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

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates.

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

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
