Obama ´actively supportive´
of assault weapons ban

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/18/2012 2:24:15 PM

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

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!

Assault weapons are already illegal.
This is like unto banning brown cars.

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.

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.

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.

Reid Cherlin, a former White House press aide, has written a critical look at the First Lady’s office in the current issue of The New Republic. Entitled, “The Worst Wing: How the East Wing Shrunk Michelle Obama,” the piece consists primarily of unnamed former aides complaining about her “leadership style,” and their inability to cultivate a good relationship with her. Cherlin, now a journalist, writes: The “first lady’s office can be a confining, frustrating, even miserable place to work.

With Hillary Clinton already locking up massive amounts of cash for a presumptive 2016 presidential run, members of the hard left may be looking for an alternative. Many Democrats remain uninspired by Clinton’s progressive record – her most leftist period came during her early days as First Lady, and resulted in part in a 1994 Republican Congressional landslide – and have urged other candidates to jump into the race to provide a boost for a further-left agenda. Polls show Clinton defeating all comers in potential primary matchups. But polls also show that her appeal stems largely from her status as

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
