Obama hopes to enact new gun-control measures in 2013
The Hill ^ | 12/30/2012 | Meghashyam Mali

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 NBC’s “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.”

To “fundamentally transform” a country, chaos is very helpful.

Yep, this is pretty wild. Not unexpected though.

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!

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.

“I think there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can't have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids,” said Obama.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

_____________________________________________

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.

That cannot be a serious question - he HATES AMERICA and came into office with a pledge to TRANSFORM it. He hates the Constitution and has proclaimed it is "flawed" in that it is only a set of "negative rights". Ran on a pledge of Wealth Redistribution. Can't have wealth redistribution without a civil war between the classes all being driven by the tyrannical government.

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.

Well, it might be reasonable to observe that a civil war would be conducive to achieving the goals of "Negative Population Growth" desired by Fabian Socialist uber Vanguard Elites -- like Obama financial Guru Warren Buffet:
 
http://www.google.com/#hl=en&tbo=d&biw=1600&bih=721&sclient=psy-ab&q=Warren+Buffett+%22Negative+Population+Growth%22
 
And it might also be reasonable to observe the grossly inhumane and perverse ERROR of that agenda - as we Americans are SUPPOSED to do:
 
 

 


"...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. "

--Thomas Jefferson, 1786

...which, is why the 2nd protects the 1st.

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.

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.....

eh?

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.

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.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
