Any gun control measures will stop at the House of Representatives for sure and probably in the Senate. In Calirado, gun control will stop at a large and convincing enough call (and determination) for voting out certain incumbents.
Now that it appears that the Mayan calender thing didn’t work out...HELP OBAMA! SAVE US FROM OURSELVES! WE HAVE TOO MUCH FREEDOM! CHAIN US UP AND PROTECT US FROM EACH OTHER!
Questions that I wonder about
Are Americans too lazy and fat to have another civil war?
What exactly would it take for citizens to stand up and say no?
I what point have enough civil rights be removed for the majority of people to notice?
Are Americans too stupid to even understand what is happening?
PERSONALLY I think that Americans are too lazy and too far gone to do anything about this or any other subject. I think a lot of Americans would enjoy socialism.
Some say there could never be another civil war in America. I wonder.
There are some threads on Free Republic that say it can never happen again.
To quote Winston Churchill, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
Is there really anyone stupid enough to believe it will end with a ban on “assault” weapons?
[Assault weapons] menacing looks, coupled with the publics confusion over fully-automatic machine guns versus semi- automatic assault weapons anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons. Josh Sugarmann, executive director of New Right Watch, spokesman for the National Coalition to Ban Handguns, Assault Weapons and Accessories in America, policy report of New Right Watch and the Education Fund to End Handgun Violence, September 1988
Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It does not matter if you have to distort facts or even lie.
-Sarah Brady, Handgun Control, Inc., The National Educator, January, 1994
If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an out right ban, picking up every one of them... Mr. and Mrs. America, turn em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes werent here.-Dianne Feinstein, Senator, CBS-TVs 60 Minutes, February 5, 1995
Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizen to bear arms is just one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible. - Hubert Humphrey(bitter clinger), 1960
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.- William Pitt, 1783
Gun bans dont disarm criminals, gun bans attract them.- Walter Mondale, U.S. Ambassador to Japan(bitter clinger), April 20, 1994
And so it begins...
“Maybe someone needs to send him a copy of Unintended Consequences.”
Somebody ought to get that book back into print, QUICKLY.
Even used copies run about $150 at used book outlets...
It can be found on the net in pdf format, if you dig for it...
The rats an media need to be reminded that they had the house, the senate and the president from 08 to 10. They could have passed this back then .... Ban, confiscation etc ... Was theirs for the taking.
They played politics to win a second term.... Allegedly per their own descriptive agenda ....the reason these kids were murdered....
They had the capabilities, resources and votes to play this the way they want now ..... Then
Like they stopped Obamacare? They will just strip out a bill from the house and fill it with gun control language and deem it passed.
I’d love to give my opinion, but I’m sure I’ll get a special visit not long afterwards.
The house has to pass any bill, before it can become law. No revised bill can be made law without passing in the House. So no, a president can’t simply revise a bill that has passed the House and decree it as law. But on the planet Niburu, maybe such things are possible...or maybe in an episode of the X Files.
The Government has nothing to fear but .....small arms with clips
I'm not aware of a time that Congress has stopped "Obama" from doing whatever he wants to do, unconstitutional or not. He makes his own "bills" and "laws" with his autopen.
Political Correctness already killed the 1st Amendment.
My 2 cents.
Removing the 2nd would seem to be an extremely difficult task for the uh, “lawmakers”. But if it did happen — actually confiscating all the weapons will be nigh impossible! The loons on the left will learn to their dismay what the Constitution means by “Militia”
Half the general public anyway.
The other half can go sh1t in their hat.
