Sounds like they are afraid all will collapse around them and they will end up with no loaf.
Republicans better cut the legs off this toute de suite.
FU** YOU BARACK OBAMA.
Cheap shill for a socialist regime and hater of American people.
>> that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers,
Everyone must pay an FFL dealer $150+ to sell, trade, or give a gun to another citizen
>>track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database,
Full Registration!! Then, “turn em in, Mr and Mrs America.”
>>strengthen mental health checks,
An expensive psych eval (not covered by ObamaCare, of course) to buy and keep your guns
>>and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors
How much stiffer do they need to be? Summary execution at dawn? People that shoot up schools do not follow laws.
“...the American public has a short memory.
Sure they do. Look at the results of the election.
DON’T FALL FOR IT! This bill will have everything in it that the anti-gunners have wanted for the last 50 years!
It has always been about handguns. Assault rifles are just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.
Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.
John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.
Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.
George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl revolver.
Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.
Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.
Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 revolver.
What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban them.
Don’t fall for their claims of “moderation”.
May I suggest to Obama and the democrats a “solution”...
Make it worthwhile for each American to stay away from guns, by paying each and every person at least $200/year, for each member of the household.
Americans get bribed for a lot of other things anyway, so, this can’t be that much more egregious.
And what’s $200 per person anyway? It’s just peanuts in comparison to the other giveaway programs that Obama and the democrats have used in the last 4 years.
Along with the free stuff that is already being used, the free gun money will probably cost less than the free “Obamafoan” program.
Oh wow ... guys who are suicidal (and terrorists) who want to make a statement before they die by killing all the sitting duck kids in gun-free zones are going to be SO deterred by this .... /S (what IDIOTS!!!!)
If the GOP controlled house folds on this, the republic is done.
Don't want to let the sheeple know Dear Leader has raised taxes!
How about mandatory prison for politicians that send assault rifles to the Mexican drug cartels?
Post the bills here. The bills are written on government time and government money. If any gun control vote happens in the House, post every name, every yea and nay vote. Avoid paying attention to the cult of celebrity propaganda. Obama cannot be a dictator, and Boehner is not the only Republican voting in the House.
The “White House” can “weigh” all it wants. Anti-Second-Amendment bills won’t get the votes, unless those few fascist constituents behind the bills want even less private spending and revenues (default sooner). They will realize sooner or later, that about 2/3rds of our nation—from every class and demographic—is already nonpolitical because of too many violations of constitutional freedoms so far.
I found that comment to be very creepy.
Ever since 9/12/2001, I’ve been saying we’ve got more to worry about from the US government than any terrorists.
I wonder if anyone believes me yet? Or does everyone still think I’m a kook?
Sure, whatever. I’m a Losertarian KOOK who thinks the US government would like to go after guns and has no interest in protecting the American sheeple, er, people. I must just Hate America First!
Oh well, let me say standard FREEper things:
I am in FEAR of ISLAM! Muslims hide behind every door looking to take my guns away!!!!!
SAVE ME UNCLE SAM!!!! SAVE ME! BE MY POLITICAL MESSIAH!!
“...the White House is developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses...”
How typical of a crminal regime: threatening extortion against businesses!
Sandy Hook was perfect. Too perfect for my take. I don’t think we know what happened. There have to be tapes, 911 calls with gunfire that documents whether the shots fired were from handguns or a rifle(s). Teachers’ stories have not come out. Nor the kids who might have been looking out the windows and seeing who was coming or going. The guy in camo/gear of some kind in the woods.
Dec 14th marks the death of George Washington. With teams of the IRGC/al Quds/AQ/cartels in this country right now, how better to get back at the US. Where was that Malik Shabazz guy or one of his ilk? Most of those killed were White.
Jarrett said payback. 0bama said revenge. They meant it. Besides, this event got Benghazi out of the discussion....and that leads straight to the Oval Office—which they know very well.
I have no idea why people are getting so worked up about this. unless king barack issues another one of his rotal decrees, he hasn’t got the votes in the house. whatever mr. 51% is thinking, he can’t get it passed. not democratically, anyway.
Good. Let them focus on this and waste their political capital.
Time for gun owners to march on Washington, preferably wearing Gadsden flags.
