Obama to announce most
expansive gun-control
agenda in generations

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/15/2013 10:09:25 PM

President Obama on Wednesday will formally announce the most aggressive and expansive national gun-control agenda in generations as he presses Congress to mandate background checks for all firearm buyers and prohibit assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips. The announcement will set off a fierce confrontation with Congress over an issue that has riven American society for decades. Obama’s far-reaching firearms agenda has at best tepid support from his party leaders and puts him at loggerheads with Democratic centrists.

It´s very simple, actually. Make any crime comitted with a gun a federal offense. Right now, the bad guys can lawyer there way out of jail time.

But it´s not about stopping crime. Sadly.

How effective are enforceable are EOs?
Are they comparable to laws that are passed?
Will the Tenth Amendment spare us this invasion of individual States´ Rights?

Obama wants to kill us with cheap,light weight Obamamobiles and by taking away our ability to defend ourselves. Who is going to be the 21st Century John Brown?

He may very well be the first President in history to start a second term with articles of impeachment already brought against him.

These exe orders will go to a court no sooner than the ink is dry on them.Supposedly obama is a Constitutional scholar but missed the classes on "shall not infringe".

They´re using this tragedy to push the envelope on Obama´s powers.Using kids as props on this is disgraceful and sickening.Any parent who lent their kid for this photo op should lose their citizenship over aiding and abetting a constitutional overthrow by a president.For all we know,there´s 10 kids not on that stage because they were wiped out by an abortions.

Obama cares about kid´s safety so much but didn´t bat an eye over a botched abortion babies dying in a utility closet.

Stephanopoulos: Why’s Biden presenting the recommendations instead of the President?
Williams: Dunno. Now, live, from the White House, Vice President Joe Biden, surrounded by children from across the country.

Biden: Mornin’, everyone. So, wonderin’ why ole Joe’s here, not the Boss? Well, yesterday he says, ´´Joe, I can’t expend capital on this one. Take the blowback for me, and. . . .´´ Hey kids, quit fidgetin’ and look up at me like we showed you.

Anyway, I gotta coupla VP Executive Orders here. Perfectly legal: the Chief’s playin’ golf, and Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution gives me power when he’s incapacitated.

Let´s get to it

Order 1: Firearms and ammunition manufacturers, bow and arrow makers, Walmart, Cabela’s, gun shops—-do your thing, but you can only sell to us Feds and drug cartels.

Order 2: Mandatory turn-in. Everything. Hand ‘em over or go to jail. And we know who has what. The NSA hasn’t been twiddling its thumbs the last four years.

Confiscated weapons will be used to equip the president’s new Civilian National Security Force, saving taxpayers a bundle.

You slip somethin’ by us, and maybe shoot a mugger or home invader, you’re lookin’ at hard time.

Order 3: Hunters, register your slingshot or boomerang, you’re good to go.

Order 4: Priests and shrinks: you record everybody you talk to, send the tapes to the FBI. They’ll take it from there.

That’s it. I’m askin’ video game makers and Hollywood to keep the violence down, but only askin’. Not gonna infringe on their First Amendment rights. Hey, you see Django? Did that rock or what? I. . . .

Jay Carney: Thank you, Mr. Vice President.

Re #14: " there are clearly some things that he can do via executive order, such as tell the Dept. of Justice to better enforce existing laws, or request a study of gun violence."

Does it really take an executive order for the Justice Dept to do thier jobs, or should the Justice Dept follow the law as the Constitution provides?

Re #14 again: "It is a fact that it is too easy for psychotic individuals to get hold of guns today. I have yet to hear any suggestions from the gun-rights lobby as to how to make it more difficult for this tiny segment of the population to get hold of guns."

Keeping psycos off the streets via institutionalization worked for centuries; until a bunch of leftists convinced enough of us sane persons otherwise. If psychos are locked up, then psychos cannot obtain firearms. (or knives, or chains, or lead pipes, or....on and on.) We dont need more gun control, we need more crazy-persons control.

Oh yeah. Tell the Justice Dept to do a better job of enforcing the law. That should do it.

Maybe he should start though by telling them to quit breaking the law themselves. And start enforcing the immigration laws while they´re at it. Rump swab.

Anyone who watches the circus with Obama today, take a GOOD look at those children, and be reminded that they already are growing up less free than we did, will be saddled with debt, and will NEVER experience the RIGHT to own a gun with a 10 round magazine, heck, may not even be allowed to own a firearm period.
I am sick of the twisted language..all guns are firearms..UNTIL they are used to shoot someone, then they become assault weapons.

I´ve said this before:

The more things they make illegal, the more of us will become criminals. Automatically. Just like that - stroke of a pen.

The more freedoms we lose, the more power they gain.

The more power they gain, the more freedoms we´ll lose.

FTA: These steps include enhanced federal scientific research on gun violence and a modernized federal database system to track guns, criminals and the mentally ill.

And there´s the point. To be better able to locate every gun so that it can be taken away when the time comes. It may not come immediately, but those who would enslave us think in the long terms, and ´never let a crisis go to waste.´

#14 More people are killed by drunken drivers than by guns. Do you propose banning cars? Limiting their horsepower? Of course not. It´s not the car´s fault. The effort should be toward identifying the potential offenders and either rehabilitating or punishing them as appropriate.

I heard a commentator say -- We are only as good as our government -- WHAT?

No -- No -- WE the people are as good as it gets. This country has been a shining beacon to those of US who wanted Freedom from tyranny. I passed that Lady in the harbor and I knew my family had a chance to live a good life....

Soooooo -- all you media/types -- good luck with trying to convince US that the Washington elite are in charge. They may write a we bills and huff and puff at the podium -- but -- at the end of the day they can only "lead" those of US who will follow.

AND -- my dears -- I´m not going there....My core values don´t match their whinnnning. I follow the Constitution given to US by the founding Fathers.

I am all for background checks if they first make all Congressmen and Presidential candidates go through one.

Also they should be required to take a written test about the Constitution that they are going to swear to uphold and be liable for any broken promises they make while in office.

This is no more than I have to do to get a concealed carry license and I have to pay for it without government help.

Aren´t EO´s only binding as long as the president is in office, like #2 mentions?

One day we´ll convene the families of the Mexicans murdered by F&F guns and the relatives of the deceased re Benghazi at Obama´ sentencing for treason, high crimes and misdemeanors; gun running and negligent homicide being more specific.

This meeting will have way more impact than any kids who wrote letters. Obama has a direct tie to these above mentioned deaths, unlike the false cause and effect the DC commies are pushing in linking law abiding American gun owners to Sandy Hook.

Let´s make it official: Obama will be showing his Middle Eastern side today.

When you have government hacks that have never held a real private sector job defining what an assault gun is or a magazine capacity and then say anyone should be able to vote without an ID, you know they do not have any grasp on reality. Because if you were really interested in children wouldn´t you want to be arresting those the violate existing law and removing repeat offenders from society. Instead of making more laws to include more law abiding citizens. And who do you think they will persecute? I will ignore the laws and just go on as normal. His orders will go down as the most disregarded in history.

Obama wouldn´t know an "assault weapon" from a Daisy Beebee gun.

When guns are outlawed, we´ll all be outlaws -- except for a few folks in the upper West Side of Manhattan, Brooklyn Heights, and of course, rich commies like Soros who can afford to hire armed bodyguards.

I agree with some other posters. We are not addressing the problem, which is crazy people. We have created a whole generation of "psychologically adjusted" people who have been on mind/mood altering medication all their lives. These people should not have access to guns. That includes all the lazy/too busy parent ritalin babies who have graduated to stronger stuff. Lets hear exactly what lanza was on. Nobody´s talking. Hmmmm.

I stopped halfway thru the youtube video when I saw the picture of Obama holding who they said was the little girl shot - I wanted to see if that was true. Here is a link showing that it´s not the little girl who was shot, but her sister. Apparently, the pic showing the whole family, and, altho the sister looks very similar, she is not the same.

The Clown Prince is finally going to feel a pushback to his insane power grabs. He is already scared and that´s why he had Biden do the dirty work. Financial losses are expected and, for the most part, tolerated from this thief. Guns, not so much. The loss of a gun means so much more than an empty holster.

#14 - the existing laws already PREVENTED the Newtown killer from obtaining a firearm when he applied to buy one. So, he stole the ones he used from his mother.

He illegally acquired the guns from an overprotective parent and violated the gun-free school zone laws when he arrived on school grounds. He then proceeded to break the laws against cold-blooded murder.

What laws are "common sense" and how do they prevent irrational acts?

Remember when the liberal gun control advocates used to talk about banning "assault rifles"?

Notice that they no longer do that, and now want to ban what they refer to as "assault weapons". Some of them admit that they define "assault weapons" as any semi-automatic handgun or rifle that can possible accept a clip or magazine that can hold over 10 rounds of ammunition, in New York it is now down to 7 rounds.

Such a broad definition would encompass just about all the modern firearms produced and sold in America today. If such a ban were passed, nationwide what would keep the gun banners from coming back after the next mass shooting to ban all "assault weapons" that contain a magazine that hold 5 rounds or 3 rounds? or even banning all firearms that can accept any sort of a detachable magazine?

About all of these mass shootings are perpetrated by crazy people who set out on a personal suicide mission, and they know that the way to surely gain nationwide attention for themselves is to murder a lot of innocent people before they take their own lives. You will never hear the liberal Democrats and their gun control allies talk about those dangerous mentally ill people other then to refer to them as victims, because they know that while guns have no vote, the mentally ill can vote and do vote mostly for liberal Democrats.

I guess obama´s facebook friends and democRATS are just waiting for a replay of Germany in the 1930s. hitler got all the guns registered, set up a few awful events, then took all the guns and started exterminating unwanted masses. Included in those exterminated masses were thousands of Germans who helped put, and keep him in power.

By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio. The Cadillac tax that goes into effect in a few years, he

Now that she has left CBS News, Sharyl Attkisson is revealing all sorts of interesting facts about the way news is shaped by ideologues. Appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources (transcript) Attkisson: “Media Matters, as my understanding, is a far left blog group that I think holds itself out to be sort of an independent watchdog group. And yes, they clearly targeted me at some point. They used to work with me on stories and tried to help me produce my stories, and at some point” (emphasis added) Well, well, well. So the Soros-funded group works with mainstream media journalists on

USAID documents cite Hillary

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
