Skip to comments.Obama hopes to enact new gun-control measures in 2013
Posted on 12/30/2012 7:50:26 AM PST by Obadiah
President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his full weight behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.
I'm going to be putting forward a package and I'm going to be putting my full weight behind it, said Obama in an interview aired on NBCs Meet the Press. I'm going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.

Start with big city feral gun-toting youth and gangs, please.
To “fundamentally transform” a country, chaos is very helpful.
Did he waive a hi-cap mag in the air?
(sound of shotgun racking)
Pretty much knew if Obozo won the election (still stunned!), he would push Obozo-care, cap and trade, unilateral nuke arms reduction, amnesty for illegals, gun ban, attack on Christianity and much more.
Buckle the ol seatbelt, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
America is going to regret reelecting this bass turd.
Because it’s now or never.
2014 elections are coming and I think conservatives, who either chose to not vote or voted for an alternate candidate, will not make the same mistake twice.
Funny how Diane Frankenstein had her Assault Weapons Ban already done in her top drawer ready to roll...almost like they were waiting for a crisis not to go to waste...
I still vote, but it’s too late to save this nation at the ballet box. 2014 and beyond......it’s just too late.
I wouldn't disagree -- but Zero's position is to require that sane law abiding citizens live in a cage, and allow the mentally ill and criminals free rein.
He wants to disarm the American Public so his Ton Ton Macoutes in his “Civilian Defense Force” have free rein on enforcing his extra-constitutional edicts without worrying about messy little things like “that governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, whenever a government becomes destructive of those ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it..” U.S. Declaration of Independence.
Besides, that was written by a bunch of old white slave-owners 200 years ago and has no relevance in today’s enlightened socialist paradise.
I guess unemployment’s been fixed.
If Obama is making gun control a priority, what are the chances of this turning our like some of his other priorities?
His #1 priority was jobs and look how that turned out. He was laser focused on the economy and that turned out just as good. They worked hard getting move vegetables and they were beaten back by a bunch of kids.
But then again, like Obamacare, he really wants it. He might actually try with full effort unlike his other #1 priorities.
Personally, I don’t know why anyone that even utters controlling guns isn’t immediately charged with violating the constitutional rights of citizens and jailed.
If he thinks he can win, I say BRING IT!
No, the people who reelected him will never regret it. They hate America just as much as he does. The more Obama can stick it to us the more popular he will be with the worthless class.
No doubt. No one at any level of government has our interests in mind. Rush is right. We serve them. Beside massive fraud, there really is just one party. Pray.
I don’t know if it’s too late. We are winning at state level.
but I do wish the three million missing conservatives, and the three million conservative voters, who voted for the alternate candidates, had reconsidered their actions.
It will be ineffective. Most “big cities” have very strict gun control already. Passing another gun law will do little or nothing except make everyone feel good that they “did something.”
He will lose this one
I think that the recordskeeping in Obamacare will flag anyone on mood drugs (Prozac, Paxil, Ambien...) on the NICS system so that these people can’t purchase a firearm.
With better recordkeeping, they can do it by family, dwelling, or neighborhood.
Anyone hear there was reference to Sandy Hook in the Batman movie? And that Susan Collins, author of the Hunger Games, lives in Newtown, Ct?
I really don’t think this A-HOLE knows what he is getting into.You know there are no telephone poles in DC .I wonder if they took that into account for a future event? Bring it on!
I agree with you, it is too late. This is not like Washington’s Army defeat on long island early during the war, it is more like Yorktown for Cornwallis.
Secret tax negotiations now. How does this differ from The King not heeding requests from the Colonies? It is more like the times leading up to the declaration of independence.
The biggest tragedy to strike the US was the Union winning the War Between the States. From that point on, the tail has wagged the dog and not by the rule of law, by the rule of force.
Welcome to the Gulag, Comrade will be our next national motto.
The ballet box has never been the place to save this nation. The ballet box has been the place to wear tights.
“2014 elections are coming and I think conservatives, who either chose to not vote or voted for an alternate candidate, will not make the same mistake twice.”
These so-called “Patriots” are the reason we're taking it up the a$$ right now! Sorry, but if Romney won (as bad as he might have been) things would be looking up right now.
To those conservative "Patriots" who decided to either have a pity party and stayed home on election night, or voted for a third party candidate, I say to you, YOU HOLD A GOOD PORTION OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHERE WE ARE AT TODAY!
To justify their abject stupidity and selfishness, these “Patriots” like to say: “There wasn't one bit of difference between Romney and Obama.” Have a nice time explaining that to our children who you helped royally fu*k over!
Thanks for what you helped to give us: an unbridled Obama! Selfish A-holes!
Throughout his first 4, nobama and the dems had a record and tendency to push things they knew would never fly, I think to either just stir shite or do the old magician’s trick of diverting our focus.
Although I am sure these progressives and their africized muslim gubmit would be quite happy with deleting the 2nd Amendment, it is not going to happen in a “UNITED” States of America, maybe in the Blue States, which would be a good thing.
Because he believes in and wants a Fabian socialist, Marxist, or pure communist nation. Pick your poison.
Great catch! LOL
BS! He's more interested in making sure something like Lexington and Concord don't happen again.
Unemployment is being redefined. Just a little more cooking of the books and all will be skittles and unicorns. Anyone who is receiving transfer payments will be considered employed. Those who do not will be considered suspect and those who work in the private sector other than government rent seekers like GE will be enemies of the state.
What was the reference in Batman?
Suzanne Collins was born in CT fifty years ago, and lives in CT now. What does that have to do with anything?
You mean WILL happen again !
You nailed it.
"...and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them. ""I HAVE SWORN UPON THE ALTAR OF GOD ETERNAL HOSTILITY TO EVERY FORM OF TYRANNY OVER THE MIND OF MAN"

He’s not going to go through Congress any more than he went through Congress on the Dream act or Welfare Reform.
He’ll use an executive order or a international treaty to disarm us.
That is how Kali got their assault rifle ban.
They made the bill up (which also included lever action rifles till it was found out), then they released Pat Purdy from the mental institutions and he passed California’s waiting period for a handgun, bought a rifle in Oregon, then shot up the school ground at Stockton, the bill was rushed through and people suddenly found themselves criminals in their own homes.
Wham bam, done.
Guarantee he’s coordinating with the MSM. They make Pravda look like amateurs.
“I do wish the three million missing conservatives, and the three million conservative voters, who voted for the alternate candidates, had reconsidered their actions.”
Personally I hope they go into the ovens first.
To arms, to arms, the low information voter is coming.
Let me see if I get this right...
Obama wants to ban assult weapons and high capacity magazines because of the Sandy Hook tragedy.
I ask then,
Why not ban Muslims because of the 9/11 tragedies.
Why? The answer is obvious.
Back in the 60’s the plan was to have to eliminate 25 million Americans in order to implement the leftist agenda. Now it is much, much more. No stone for a Bill Ayers/Obama stepper though.....
correct. Mr. Obama is our liar in chief. He knows that a large percentage of the population operates only on emotion and lacks an ability to logically assess a situation. In addition he knows that their lack of education ( historical and otherwise) makes it easy to convince them of his good intentions regarding their safety.
The only reason he is interesting in disarming America is to make resistance against a tyrannical government impossible.
Rule #1. NEVER underestimate your opponent. And never underestimate the power of evil.
We are still smarting from having made that mistake last November.
That’s exactly what they will do. And anyone that even makes any right wing crazy comments to healthcare workers, maybe doing something like choosing life over a recomended termination.
The Ron Paul/Gary Johnson nutjobs, as well as the other pessimistic conservatives, despite being warned throughout the campaign that if Obama gets in again, no more fair elections, stubbornly felt it more important to vote with their “principles” that for the preservation of the Republic.
