OBAMA: As far as people lining up and purchasing more guns, I think that we´ve seen for some time now that those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners, that somehow the federal government´s about to take all your guns away. And there´s probably an economic element to that. It is obviously is good for business. But I think that those of us who look at this problem have repeatedly said that responsible gun owners, people
Comments: As a state senator in Illinois Obama opposed legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home. He is a dangerous lying tyrant.
Could obamao point out which gun control laws right now on the books, are not ´common sense´.? BTW...It´s not the ´Gun Lobby that´s ginning up fear´. It´s the marxists in D.C who are threatening our Second Amendment rights.
Good OP, thanks for citing that gun grab vote on zippy´s record. That was one instance when zippy didn´t vote "present" in the Illinois Assembly.
Also, he filled out a survey in the 90´s where he went on the record in favor of a ban on the manufacture, sale, and distribution of handguns. This incident came up during the 08 campaign. The obama denied it, and said an associate had filled out the form, which is another big lie because zippy´s handwriting is found on the survey.
Color me unimpressed. FTA ~ ´But I think that, you know, those of us who look at this problem have repeatedly said that responsible gun owners, people who have a gun for protection, for hunting, for sportsmanship -- they don’t have anything to worry about. The issue here is not whether or not we believe in the Second Amendment.
This from the same guy who told us we could keep our health care if we liked it. DO NOT believe anything this character says; keep watching what he DOES.
Did anyone here bother to read the direct quote? The fear-mongering here proves his point.
"The issue is, are there some sensible steps that we can take to make sure that somebody like the individual in Newtown can’t walk into a school and gun down a bunch of children in a -- in a shockingly rapid fashion? And surely we can do something about that."
You won´t find many Americans who disagree with that statement.
"PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, I think, for example, how we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals and how we track that more effectively -- there may be some steps that we can take administratively, as opposed -- through legislation." Which translated means, I will use Executive Orders if I want to" How did that gun tracking work out in Fast and Furious? Obama is a very dangerous man.
If obams lips are moving he´s lying. Where are all the people who swore to uphold the Constitution against "ALL Enemies" foreign and DOMESTIC. Obama and many in Government are Domestic Enemies of the Constitution.
A lot more children have died from gunshot wounds on the South side of Chicago this year than in the Newton shooting. There a lot more "common sense" gun laws there than anywhere else in the country. How many of the shooters underwent background checks and used their legally purchased firearms to commit their crimes? How many made sure they used guns that would not accept a magazine that would hold more than ten (or seven) rounds? Someone should have asked the won during his press conference. He should know the answers, it´s the community he organized.
I didn´t watch the clip but I read the transcript. How in the world does anyone think he is such a great speaker? It reads like a valley girl on steroids! You know. You know. You know. I couldn´t get beyond the "you knows" to actually determine what he was saying. Whatever it was, it can´t be good. What a blithering idiot!
If you like your doctor, you can keep him under my Affordable Care Act. Your medical insurance costs will go down. I will not have lobbyists in my cabinet or administartion. I will have the most transparent administration ever. I will ensure that all bill have 3 days for review before voting on them. I will not increase the taxes of the middle class. I will shut down Guantanamo. The attack on the Benghazi diplomatic mission was the resuly of an anti-muslim video. I personally was involved in every step of the planning and implementation of the Osama Bin Laden take-down. I am a natural born citizen of the United States.
These are but a few of the many lies that this fraud has told us. We should believe him when he says he doesn´t plan to steal our guns?
From my understanding, deputy Morgan Earp died, shot in the back by a thug in a town where only law enforcement was allowed to carry any firearm. Funny, that thug didn´t care about the law either way back then. As Mark Levin has said so well "It´s the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of Needs." And, my rights don´t end at your opinion of how many rounds you think I might need for protection.
I´ve heard it said, you don´t know how many rounds you´ll need until it´s over and time taken reloading can get you killed.
I´m not afraid. I´m ticked off with this government gun grab.
It is certainly not the gun lobby doing it, in fact anybody with even a slight lick of sense would have dropped this hot potato months ago...and considering what what King Midas has done for gun and ammo sales over the past year, the Harvard Business Review will be doing a point paper on how to break sales ceilings!
in 2006 Obama said: "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." Today the Obamboozler thinks it´s OK. More proof he´ll say anything.
The 2nd Amendment does not include the words or the concepts "common sense" or "responsible." It simply says: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
