Citing shootings, Obama says
must ´go back at´ gun-control push

Reuters, by Jeff Mason

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/22/2013 8:28:58 PM

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama urged supporters on Saturday to "go back at it" and pursue gun-control measures after mass shootings in Washington and Chicago in the past week put the spotlight back onto the problem of gun violence in the United States. Obama made passing tough gun laws a top priority after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, in December, stunning the nation. But Congress rejected his proposals to restrict sales of certain types of guns and require greater background checks. Gun-rights groups opposed the measures, saying they would infringe

It seems to me that all dems/libs should be banned since they are the ones doing all of the shootings.

One of the common threads among the shooters is they are all Obama supporting liberal psychopaths.

The answer is that Democrats are DELUSIONAL. They suffer from any one of several manifestations of schizophrenia.

Some of them, like Obama imagine there´s a voice telling him to GRAB THE GUNS. Others, like Bill Clinton, are stuck on CHECK THEIR CREDENTIALS.

Then there´s Nancy Pelosi ~ she actually imagines that she is the COMMANDING VOICE telling them what to do.

I am open to new laws that will prevent mass murders. Trouble is I have yet to hear one such law proposed by ANYONE. There is ABUNDANT evidence that proposed laws would not have prevented recent mass shootings in Aurora, CO, Newtown, CT, the Washington Navy Yard, etc.

If guns are responsible for crimes, Congress should pass a law holding the gun accountable and, if convicted, send the gun to prison. If, instead, it is "a deranged person or grievance killer" as referred to by Dianne Feinstein, person who kills "many people in a short amount of time," hold that PERSON accountable.

In most cases of mass murder, the perpetrator either commits suicide or is killed by the police. The perpetrators are prepared to DIE, why would they obey a law against gun possession as advocated by the anti-gun community?

The reality is simply that "a deranged person or grievance killer" will find a way to either get guns illegally or find an alternate weapon such as a bomb as was recently done in Boston.

I suggest a better focus is for Congress to pass laws making it easier to identify and neutralize "a deranged person or grievance killer" or a mentally deranged person.

Sometimes you must simply accept reality and attempt to deal with it.

Obama has no incentive to "talk" about more gun laws other than to switch the narrative away from the ever increasing deplorable job he´s doing as "president," both in domestic and foreign policy. Everything he touches on either side of the pond turns to fecal material.

Well Obama certainly is not going to come out and blame the perpetrators of all those shootings as every one of them and their family members appear to be supporters of the liberal Democrats. No doubt a lot of those people vote.

Guns can´t vote, so it is safe for Obama and the liberal Democrats to blame those hunks of plastic, steel, and wood for the shootings. Besides that, the NRA, and the firearms and related industries in the USA are conservative entities, so the liberal Democrats would love to destroy their businesses by banning most modern firearms, thus putting the jobs of tens of thousands of skilled American workers employed in those industries at risk.

As far as is known, no NRA member has ever perpetrated any of those shootings, and the NRA and the millions of people who they represent have never sanctioned the suicide by cop personal missions that those dangerous mentally ill people embark upon, as their last act in life, hoping to garner as much publicity as possible from the liberal media as, and after, they go out in a hail of police gunfire.

1) Since our government pays a lot of money to make sure the recruits on/in military installations are trained in accurately aiming small arms, rescind the stupid President Clinton Executive Order that forbids them from having a weapon at work.

2) Since most shootings occur in "Gun Free Zones" forbid any government funded building from being designated as one.

Both of these could be accomplished quickly and easily, the former by a new EO, the latter by replacing the "Gun Free Zone" signs with new signs stating, "Employees May Be Armed."

1. As we all know, it´s not about the guns. It´s all about control.

2. The fiction of the "Gun-Free Zone" is, to criminals, simply the bloody truth of "downrange."

3. Just for fun [because my Point 1 is the whole truth of the issue], let me suggest that, if guns are the real problem, so-called "gun crimes" would track exactly and perfectly with the number of guns in each ZIP Code, Congressional district, or whatever geographic boundary you want to use. And Dems could therefore prove their point in a heartbeat. Right?

Most definitely, he is NOT concerned about the many shootings in Chi Land or NJ, or even DC

He is concerned (especially with this mall stand off half a world away) that his muslim buddies will be ready for this enactment here in our country and US Citizens will have not yet been relieved of our weapons and thus able to defend themselves sufficiently and most efficiently. That, apparently, could really screw up his time table for his transforming America. He has a plan. Oh boy, does he have a plan!

Reuters is oversimplifying the case here. Nobody opposes better background checks but that´s only a small part of what Obama wants,including a national gun registry,so they know right where to go when they start grabbing guns.They want the ability to go to someone ones house out of the blue to see if guns are safely stored.

They want doctors asking if you own a gun.They want to ban what they call military assault weapons.Baseball bats and other blunt instruments are reponsible for more battery than guns. It´s like killing people with bombs are ok but don´´t use gas.

The left has already eroded the first amendment,especially religious freedom,the 4th amendment with their compulsive spying and are now after the second amendment. Even the 10th amendment is under seige as Holder steps in and over rules state law with the big foot of federalism.

I don´t think that this idiot will ever figure out that it´s all of his hip-hop, gang banging, rap music playing, thug friends that are doing all of the killing. Gun control means nothing to them. The do whatever you want, political correct society has ruined this once great country. Mayor Rhom can´t stop it, no one can. It´s the sick mind that kills, not guns.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe.

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
