"if you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking"...One of my least favorite claims..."

When you consider the number of innocent lives taken by tyranical governments, that statement cuts in both directions...

“All red state governors should do like they did with Obamacare and order state and local law enforcement not to assist. “

I agree with this approach, but will the governors do this? Have any spoken up yet? Any signs at all that they are even paying attention?

He could order the BATFE to do various absurd, illegal, things, and the jacked-booted thugs would comply.

If that's true, then we are headed for war.

" you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking:

Then let's start by banning guns in the hands of government agents. That should save plenty of lives - many might even be innocent lives. Plus there's more than a few innocent dogs we could save...

I was listening to the Art Bell show a few months ago and the guest on was some guy from the Merlin Project. What really caught my ear is that he said Obama’s chart is very similar to MLK, Jr.’s. It was posted online during the radio show and it showed his chart ending in early 2013. What could be the reason for it? It is becoming more clear as time goes by.

I agree. Unfortunately; too many knee-jerk emotional thinkers lap this up. By this logic; the speed limit everywhere should be no more than 20 mph. This would drastically reduce auto-accident deaths. It may be completely inefficient, unrealistic, and crippling to the economy, but it would save at least one life so it would be "worth it".

""As the president said, if you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking. But I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of Americans and take thousands of people out of harm's way if we act responsibly."

What if the actions of ObamaCare result in the death of one life, is it okay to scrap ObamaCare?

This administration is a menace.

“Gun Control Kills People”

It also kills many liberal congresscritters careers who try to pretend to be conservative at home while running for re-election and voting otherwise.

Let them stand by and let this happen without lifting a finger to stop it. The *hit is going to hit the fan! And they had better be ready for it. This is one issue that voters don’t waver on!

He can order his agencies under his Executive branch to do what he wants. He can’t order me legally, and I won’t comply.

Someone in Congress needs to step up and say publicly "Americans do not need to comply with this" and cite the Constitutional reasons why.

If he does, it will go to the Supreme Court.

This time our side better have the goods on Roberts and others so that they will be damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

FReepers please don’t bother with “that’s beneath us” and “we don’t act that way.” Not doing what it takes to stop these people is what has this country going down the drain.

I definitely prefer pressure on Roberts etc. to a Civil War.

I was speaking about this and his EOs with my dear departed mother in 2010 right before she died. She died heartbroken this country had elected this man. She asked me about what would happen when he came for the guns. I told her “I’m not going to give them up under any circumstance”......She said, “I wouldn’t either.”

She was 86 when she died. Lived a Christian life, never smoke or drank, never lied and obeyed all the laws until her death. For her to endorse what I told her I’d do is pretty condemning of what evil we are confronted with today.

They are betting nobody has the stones to stand up to their dictatorship. So far, they’ve been right.

If you read the personal writings of the day from WWII, Hitler and his minions were similarly (and pleasantly) surprised to discover that Westerners simply will keep bending over backwards as long as they can.

For us, everyone knows that this war is going to be an ugly, vicious, bloody war... and one side is doing everything it can to bear the burdens and ignore the incoming tyranny. When the fight eventually comes (no telling what event will play the role of Poland), it will not be pleasant.

Over 1 million abortions in 3 years so I guess we don't need to hold our breath on shutting down PP.

Can you imagine the hissy fit the libs would have if a Republican president issued an Executive Order banning abortion?

Or an Executive Order lowering the top income tax rate to 10 per cent?

Or an Executive Order allowing oil and gas drilling in National Parks?

Walmart Gives in to Meeting with Biden on Gun Proposals

Reuters

Alexander Abad-Santos 10:40 AM ET

Less than a day after Walmart said it was too busy to meet with Vice President Joe Biden and his commission on gun-legislation proposals, the nation’s largest gun seller has had a change of heart: Walmart will send a representative to a White House meeting on Thursday. CNN’s Ali Velshi has the scoop:
