What Does a Second Obama Term Mean for Gun Owners?
Townhall ^ | Nov 06, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 11/06/2012 12:07:27 PM PST by neverdem

During the second presidential debate of 2012, President Barack Obama said, “What I’m trying to do is get a broader conversation about how we reduce the violence generally. Part of it, is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.”

You can bet he meant what he said. Obama has a long history of holding anti-Second Amendment views, despite portraying himself as pro-hunter and reasonable about gun control. A second term spells trouble for law-abiding citizens wanting to exercise their right to keep and bear arms: Obama is strongly opposed to concealed carry, has supported gun owner licensing and gun registration and voted to ban semi-automatic rifles, handguns and ammunition during his time in the Illinois State Senate. He even voted for the criminal prosecution of those who use a firearm in self-defense.

“I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns,” Obama told author and economist John Lott, according to an interview Lott did on the Michael Medved Show in 2008.

The effects of a second Obama term will reach far beyond the next four years and will have grave consequences for gun owners. If re-elected, Obama will have as many as three opportunities to place more anti-Second Amendment judges on the Supreme Court… for life. During his first term, he appointed Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, both of whom, as you might expect, have staunch anti-Second Amendment records.

First Lady Michelle Obama understands the power her husband holds should he receive another four years.

“We’re going to make a choice that will impact our lives for decades to come… let’s not forget what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices… let’s not forget the impact that their decisions will have on our lives for decades to come,” she said...

I guess some body ought to tell Obunghole that the SECOND AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
has absolutely nothing to do with hunting rabbits.
It has every thing to do with lieing, greedy, self absorbed, narcissistic, arrogant asses like himself.
The Second Amendment was put there to act as a check on oppressive government and would be emperors like him.

Think you'll finally do something about your Jews Gun owners, as we did with ours?

What... did you do?

We put them in cattle-cars and shipped them east... always east.

To the Ukraine... to the resettlement camps?

To resettle them... in the air.

Excuse me?

To turn them into smoke. [twirls finger in the air] They burned the bodies after they gassed them. They had to, so nobody would ever know.

People need to start thinking of a couple of things -

one, getting some guns that are “off paper”, and
two, get some “give away” guns for when the JBTs come to confiscate them.

Obama doesn't always say exactly what he means. When he says "I don't think people should have guns" he really means "I don't think WHITE people should have guns." White for him is only partially racial, it's also dogwhistle for "people who have money but aren't in my party or affiliated unions."

He wouldn't mind having a well armed civilian army of auxiliaries, either formally under General Big Sis of the DHS, or informally, as self-redistributing criminals among whom his people are highly represented. Has he come down hard on guns actually used in crime? Has he proposed extra-strict penalties or harsh enforcement of existing laws for gun-wielding criminals or gang bangers? No, he has not. In fact, he's run guns to Mexico for shady reasons of his own, and he's pushed for social justice in the form of race based penalties (in schools as well as in the judiciary).

Yep, at the producers, because that is the only way they are going to get us to work. Because we will have no incentive to produce otherwise.

Impeachment requires an opposition that observes honor and a two thirds vote in the Senate to remove him or her from office. I'm almost sure that the House considered impeaching Holder. They chose to vote for Holder being in contempt of Congress.

““I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns,” “

The great irony is, as all firearms enthusiasts know, that Barack has done more to promote gun sales over the last four years than any other President in history.

Prices of AR-15s soared in his early years and are still fairly high.

What I want to know is what Homeland Security intends to do with the large purchase of millions of rounds of ammo.

I found a method thatcan/might work. Do the search on Google, Yahoo or Bing. Enclose a title within quotation marks and add freerepublic.com:

"What Does a Second Obama Term Mean for Gun Owners?" freerepublic.com

It works when this forum's archive search fails.

And who would do the pointing?

The National Weather Service?

Not a single fat-ass federal fascist bureaucrat is willing to die on a hilltop for the glory of obama.

Keep thinking, Mr. B, and you’ll find all the “off paper” guns and ammo that you’ll ever need. Two hints:

1. April 19, 1775

2. Old North Bridge

It’s time for mainstream Conservatives to start looking for ways to salvage what we can of our nation by thinking of ways to restore our Constitution that work outside the corrupt and unconstitutional system. Anyone seriously talking about the 2016 presidential elections need to wake up. It’s time for states to start ignoring blatant unconstitutional laws and mandates without wasting time or money in our corrupt system. That’s where we are at right now regardless of what you think about the situation. It’s a joke trying to change things from within when you know it’s impossible. Our founding fathers wouldn’t waste their time doing that, and neither will anyone out their who can accept the truth of just how bad our situation is.

Akin may well be a "jerk." A "creep." But he has always been, and always would be a stalwart defender of RKBA. And now we have Ma McCaskill. And 'F' rated (GOA) gun-grabbing, corrupt wench who will go after all we hold dear.

We were warned. Now people, get ready for AW Bans. Bans on high-cap mags. More onerous firearm regs. Further decreases in the number of FFLs. It is coming...
