Washington –As Vice President Biden prepares to hand in a set of recommendations to curb gun violence next week and pro-gun groups dig in their heels, the vice president has put in play the possibility of using executive action to get controversial gun control measures on the books. Analysts and political scholars tell FoxNews.com that if the president goes through with his threat to circumvent Congress and issue executive orders, he is likely to face an expensive uphill legal battle – on the taxpayers’ dime. But while pro-gun lobbyists have vowed to challenge
Americans must come together and demand that Barack Obama live up to his own words and immediately cease being guarded 24/7 by the evil, evil guns he would deny his subjects, I mean citizens, the possession of. I bet we could get over 150 million signatures on a petition in a matter of hours.
Obie and Bite Me bit off more than they can chew on this one. While the msm continues to till the soil and try to indoctrinate us with this liberal garbage, let´s hasten the departure of the msm now beginning with CNN and the slimes. Pravda is ready to come in and fill the void. Still amazing that the UK media and now a former communist news outlet have woken up, but the msm and the little people foot soldiers here in the USA still push on with Obie´s lost cause. Who´d of thunk it?
What Obama and the big-city liberals don´t seem to know is that many, many democrats in ´´flyover country´´ are gun owners. They will not fall in line, like the urban rats. The wacko left is up against more than Republicans!
We have watched the illegal president take apart our best institutions and assault our morality because Americans were taken by surprise. There has been an argument for four years whether the kenyan was stupid or just evil. The MSM could do nothing but tell us that he means well, we just don´t understand him.
There is no doubt about the gun issue. He will have his hands full on this one because we will not roll over. Even if our republican "representatives" do.
President Obama has asked Joe Biden, renown Vice President of the United States of America, to begin a knife council to determine what can be done about the use of knives in committing murders. Reports indicate grinding stones, used to sharpen knives, might be the first imblements banned in the US. The Steak Restaurant Industry is said to be up in arms and indicate the lack of sharp knives could hurt their industry. Prisoners, who make up much of Mr Biden´s gun council, try to give words of reassurance and say it is easy to cut meat with a plastic spoon, just like they do in prison, so no big deal. Valerie Jarrett will reportedly be asked to head up a scissors council which understandably Fiskars, the hair industry, stores like Linens and Things and Jo Anne Fabrics are concerned about. More announcements to come on dangerous things and subsequent councils. Ms Nancy Pelosi, when pressed on the issue, commented and assured the US citizenry that banning manufacture, sale, possession and trade of these dangerous items would not cost the economy one dime, just like she said about the healthcare bill.
I´m fine with Obama having armed men to protect him, as long as they don´t use rifles equipped with folding or telescoping stocks, pistol grips, bayonet mounts, flash suppressors (or threaded barrels designed to accommodate them), or grenade launchers.
•"[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation...(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." --James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46

And #19 , the first shot fired was by an American when a Brit attempted to take his weapon . Nope , the stoopid ****** is outsmarting himself by half . He figures his precious government will have a handle on us when we say we´ve had enough . The 2nd amm. comes right after the first , it isn´t parked down there next to the 14 .
Nothing will happen. We will all scream and shout and then bend over. Always have, always will. Protesting here on L.COM will get you nothing more than "there, I feel better now". The Left has gotten what they have by actions.... riots, protests, etc. They DO something. Yup, keep on thinking voting will solve the Country´s ills and see where that gets you.

Keep pushing your illegal and far left agenda Obammy and you´ll imitate Lincoln in more ways than you´d like!
History has shown that no government can impose laws that do not carry the consent of the governed. In every case, the people either refuse to comply, or pretend to comply while devising other means to circumvent the law. The machinations by Obama and company will prove to be no exception.
My favorite line from the movie Dutch. "I don´t take crap from little kiddies". I´m and older and better man than our punk president. I´ll not be ruled by him or his kiddie group. I will continue to be the good and decent man I´ve been and I´ll follow all laws I deem valid, moral, and Constitutional. I will disregard all others.
Ironic how both the cities of which BO has control over, Chicago and D.C., have the highest crime rates in the country.
Supplanted by the fact that every major urban city with BO´S vast majority of constituents live with the highest gun violence, highest crime, worse drug abuse, highest unemployment, children with either one parent or no parent, largest entitlement community and the least educated in the country.
What a resume?
One kook (white, of course) goes ballistic and the liberals go "knee jerk" and want all guns banned.
Hey Biden and BO...how are your bans, back ground checks, waiting periods and mental health assessment going to prevent the illegal sale and use of guns among the black and Hispanic/Mexican gangs rampant in California where deaths occur every single day? Oh. Wait. It won´t.
Based on their logic, everytime there is a plane crash, car crash, knife killing, etc., all these items should be banned as well.
Did either of them consider as the economy continues to plummet, crime naturally soars.
Who likes gun control, gun confiscation, criminalization of gun ownership? Here´s a new one from veteran blogger Jon Rappoport great article at www.nomorfakenews.com with the explosive title MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS CELEBRATE GUN CONTROL. It isn´t just Hitler Stalin, Mao, Castro, Feinstein, Bloomberg, Reid, Puglosi and George Clooney who love destroying the 2nd Ammendment. And Jon has inspired other suggestions. Test this headline: MUSLIM JIHADISTS CELEBRATE REJOICE OVER GUN CONTROL. And, of course, we are not reminded every day that all criminals, all of our own drug dealing criminal underworld, all of them, celebrate our own citizen´s communists plottings for gun confiscation.
I have some doubts about the seriousness of Obama´s actions. If he wanted something real done about guns, he wouldn´t have put that idiot Biden in charge of it. Instead, perhaps he doesn´t want anything done about guns but only wants an impression that he´s trying to do something. That pleases his base but at the same time he avoids a revolt by the majority of other citizens who want guns.
Obama will "improve" the economy by proclaiming that it is time to "beat our swords into plowshares." He will claim that he has convinced the major world leaders to cut defense spending tremendously.
"We have evolved as a race, the human race. We have come to realize that we are all in this together, and that we must put an end to international suspicions, international friction, power struggles. Heaven on earth awaits us if we will all submit to this agreement."
It is a fact that a cut in defense spending will dramatically improve the economy. If that is his tactic, it is a powerful one. And if enough people accept the Utopian claim that "We have evolved as a species, and are able to leave war and violence behind," then the masses might agree to "disarm" the civilians.
At my local dealer this morning. Ammo shelves were nearly wiped clean. What was left was double the price since the last time I was in. It occured to me: they don´t need to pass a law to drive gun dealers out of business. Just make it so they have nothing to sell!

Bring it on...We the People...Will not allow! a tyrannical government to dictate to us and try to eliminate our given right of the Constitution of the United States of America. We will defend (With the help of God) it till we die. A Patriot of the United States of America.
Remember, the obama gun grab is not an executive action nor is it legal. It is the paranoid kneejerk reaction of an incompetent fool who is in it over his head and is very afraid of the people he has promised to serve.
#30: Please don’t insult me with your broad sweeping brush. You know little of what will happen if that Fascist in the WH tries to carry out his ‘threats’.
He already knows that even the Donkey controlled Senate will not support any meaningful gun restrictions and that the House is a dead end.
Why do I post this?
Because of so many posts across the internet that are of the opposite tone from your post. You may be negative and wussy but some of us can and will act when the need arises.
The Kenyan and his Commie buddies from ChiTown know this because they read posts like this and know the consequences if they try to circumvent Congress.
Tens-of-Thousands of us won’t take to the streets and riot. No, we will be behind the trees and rocks and hiding in the weeds all operating independently just like when the British retreated to Boston from Concord and Lexington in 1776.
A new Republican poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in a potentially tough spot for reelection, with more than half of respondents open to reelecting a new senator next year. The survey, from GOP firm Magellan Strategies, reveals 51 percent of respondents say it´s "time to give a new person a chance" in office. Thirty-nine percent agreed that Landrieu has performed her job well enough to "deserve to be reelected." Though those numbers are bad news for Landrieu, they´re not a clear indication half of Louisiana voters will vote to oust her.
MORVEN, Ga. — Small-town police departments across the country have been gobbling up tons of equipment discarded by a downsizing military — bicycles, bed sheets, bowling pins, French horns, dog collars, even a colonoscopy machine — regardless of whether the items are needed or will ever be used. In the tiny farming community of Morven, Ga., the police chief has grabbed three boats, scuba gear, rescue rafts and a couple of dozen life preservers. The town´s deepest body of water: an ankle-deep creek. An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department program, originally aimed at helping local law enforcement
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan- Secretary of State John Kerry met Thursday with the Pakistan´s new prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, whose election marked the first peaceful transfer of power from one civilian government to another. The Obama administration is seeking to rebalance the tumultuous relationship with the nuclear-armed Pakistan in an effort to work together on counterterrorism, to start peace talks with the Taliban as the U.S. winds down its involvement in neighboring Afghanistan, and to coordinate on other issues of strategic interest. "The common interests far exceed and far outweigh any differences," Kerry said during a joint press conference
WASHINGTON- President Obama will meet with congressional members to discuss Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act programs Thursday, the White House said. The daily schedule indicated Obama also will: -- Meet Vice President Joe Biden for lunch in the Private Dining Room.-- Meet with a group of bipartisan members of Congress to discuss key FISA programs. -- Hold a bilateral meeting with Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi to discuss matters of mutual interest.-- Host a reception for the 50th anniversary of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights
Undocumented immigrants with temporary legal status soon will be allowed to pay in-state tuition rates at all Ohio public colleges as long as they meet other residency requirements. Until now, most of the state’s public two- and four-year schools have charged those students out-of-state or international rates that can be as much as three times what Ohio students pay. Today, Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey sent a letter notifying the state’s college presidents about the change, after state Attorney General Mike DeWine determined that immigrant students now may qualify for in-state tuition.
On Tuesday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said the mainstream media get as much pleasure defeating conservatives as they do when they help liberals. "And I think they get as big a thrill, just as all Democrats do, of defeating conservatives as they do helping Obama," Limbaugh said. "The media has aligned with Obama to defeat Republicans, to defeat conservatives. And Obama is all about that. That makes them his best friend, and vice versa." Appearing on Fox News´ On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, Limbaugh said President Barack Obama can say whatever and "do pretty much
RESTON, Va.— Mark Stewart turns quite a few heads as he zips through the streets on his neon green ELF bike. With each pedal, his feet take turns sticking out from the bottom while a gentle motor hums in the background. What he´s driving looks like a cross between a bicycle and a car, the closest thing yet to Fred Flintstone´s footmobile, only with solar panels and a futuristic shape. It´s a "green" option for today´s commuters. Stewart, a 65-year-old family therapist and school psychologist from Cambridge, Mass., took the summer off in order to drive his new ELF
The White House said bluntly Wednesday that it considers the controversy over the Benghazi attack to be among the so-called "phony scandals" that President Obama has been complaining about in recent speeches -- even as new questions were being raised about the lack of progress in the investigation. Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked at the daily briefing about Obama´s repeated claim -- which he asserted most recently during a speech in Tennessee on Tuesday -- that Washington is getting distracted by phony scandals. Asked what the president was referring to, Carney listed the scandals
Fans of the TLC network reality show “19 Kids And Counting” will have to wait until next season to see what happens when the eldest son, his wife and their three children leave the Arkansas family nest on a cross-country trek to the nation’s capitol. But 25-year-old Josh Duggar said he’ll feel right at home as the executive director of FRC Action, the political arm of the Family Research Council. Faith and politics, he said, are the vehicles for promoting family values.Duggar, who ran his own business for six years before joining FRC,
President Obama weighed in on the state of journalism in an Amazon Kindle interview published Wednesday, noting the difficulties journalists face in the new media atmosphere and declaring that the “old times aren’t coming back.” “It used to be there were local newspapers everywhere,” Obama said. “If you wanted to be a journalist, you could really make a good living working for your hometown paper. Now, you have a few newspapers that make a profit because they are national brands, and journalists are having to scramble to piece together a living, in some cases as freelancers and without
They say D.C. is Hollywood for ugly people, but K Street can be D.C. for beautiful people -- or people whose navigation of ethics rules is a sight to behold. Candidate Obama said lobbyists wouldn’t work in his White House. President Obama said “we’ve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.” But some lobbyists were too beautiful to exclude. Here are our favorite 50 of the more than 100 former lobbyists who hold or have held senior policymaking jobs in the Obama administration.
TALLAHASSEE- A day after civil-rights advocate Jesse Jackson suggested Florida´s laws were racist and compared its governor to segregationist George Wallace, Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement calling on him to apologize. Here´s the release: Today, Governor Rick Scott released the following statement in response to remarks from Jesse Jackson who yesterday called Florida “the Selma of our time.” Jackson has also referred to Florida as the “Apartheid State.” Governor Rick Scott said, “Jesse Jackson owes every Floridian an apology for his reckless and divisive comments. It is unfortunate that he
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
A sex tape that Monica Lewinsky recorded for Bill Clinton at the height of their scandalous affair has leaked, during which the former White House intern is heard planning a secret sexual rendezvous with the president and declaring she is “too cute and adorable” to be ignored. On the audio tape obtained by The National Enquirer, Lewinsky at one point tries to seduce the commander in chief: “I could take my clothes off and start… well… I know you wouldn’t enjoy that? I hope to see you later and I hope you will follow my script and do what
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness. “President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.” Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress. “It’s maybe interesting
