Obama tries to undercut NRA in gun control debate
Fox News ^ | 2/4/13

Posted on 02/04/2013 1:15:34 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

...Obama on Monday tried to undercut National Rifle Association leaders and appeal directly to their membership, claiming gun owners support the "common-sense" gun control measures he's proposed -- and urging those supporters to "keep the pressure" on Congress.

....spoke in Minnesota, in his first campaign-style stop as part of a second-term push for new firearms laws...

Without once mentioning the NRA by name, Obama on Monday said gun control supporters should tell their members of Congress that "there's no legislation to eliminate all guns."

Despite opposition not only from the NRA but a number of Republican lawmakers, Obama tried to claim Monday that a "consensus" is forming around the kinds of gun control measures he's pushing in Washington, in the wake of the tragic Newtown, Conn., shooting.

Fox is giving this a good, straight, report--I dare say YOU WON'T see this kind of reporting in the rest of the media.

There IS a difference between FOX and the rest of the pack.

I’m a former long term NRA member who resigned years ago because I just got tired of all their requests for money, but re-upped around Thanksgiving for a 3-year period because they really do need it now.

I’ve got an answer for Mr. Obama: Fat chance!

How about some "common sense" crime control in Chicago or DC?

How about "common sense" voter ID control?

How about some "common sense" gun control at the ATF (Fast-n-Furious)?

How about some "common sense" security control at US embassies?

How about some "common sense" border control, or immigration control?

How about some "common sense" spending control in DC?

“Obama on Monday said gun control supporters should tell their members of Congress that “there’s no legislation to eliminate all guns.”

Nice straw man argument since no one is saying that it does. Also soemone should LOUDLY correct the POS-OTUS when he calls guns like AR15s “Weapons of War”.

I have been a NRA member for several years, upgraded to Life Member last year and to Endowment member this year.

I edited my profile and I receive NO notifications or solicitations except those that I chose.

The upgrades in membership were done strictly by my choice without any coercion from the NRA.

I have also joined other 2nd amendment groups as well and my phone is not ringing and no SPAM.

“gun owners should tell their Congress critters that there is no legislation to eliminate all guns” WTF? How insulting. Obviously everyone who disagrees with Obama is a retard running around thinking his 23 orders are to eliminate all guns? By and large the Conservative side of nearly every arguement is better informed. I swear Obama is such a condecending jackass that its tough to tell if he meant to call us all stupid or just gave us a glimpse of what he thinks.

This the time to stick together and make our voices heard. The only reason Obama’s paying attention is because we have been resisting enthusiastically.
The universal background check push is the most dangerous: if they get it, they will have gotten de facto control of all firearms transactions - then they’ll tighten things further until there’s nothing left at all.
Keep call our representatives, keep fighting!

I see the consensus forming every time I go to the gun store or try to find ammo online. Oh, there’s a consensus all right, but Obama is on the wrong end of it.

“Common sense” along with “fairness” and “balanced” are all buzzwords for the socialists/marxists.

Is this before or after the White House basically told gun owners to “shove it” after they published the pic of dear leader shooting his shotgunrifle?

All right, I've softened my stance on the matter as requested by My President. I told my Congressional reps that instead of boiling them in oil if they so much as considered voting for a single measure, I'd only hang, draw and quarter them.

Because I'm a reasonable kind of guy, that's why.

Any socialist who claims “common sense” insults my intelligence.

Common sense tells us that the belief that we must life at the expense of others must violate timeless moral principles.

Common sense tells us that eventually this ideology must involve universal coercion using the implied deadly force of government.

Common sense tells us that of course socialists want our guns because that enables that coercion.

Common sense recalls that socialism caused the deaths of over 100 million people last century.

Common sense tells us that only fools give up their guns.

Common sense tells us that yes having guns will extract a cost when crazy people and criminals run amok with them, but that cost is nothing compared to how many people can die when government ran amok.

I have been a member of the NRA for a very long time. Two days ago I paid for a 3 year membership for my wife.

I have a consensus for Obama.... My consensus trumps any faux consensus he pretends to have.

FUBO...

***”claiming gun owners support the “common-sense” gun control measures he’s proposed”****

Sounds good on the surface for the ignorant. The devil is in the details and it will bite you where it hurts!

Those who remember 1968 will also remember how they returned demanding new gun laws before the ink on the 1968 Gun Control Act was dry.

NEVER trust “COMMON-SENSE” gun law proposals.

I’m getting tired of the leftist agenda on gun control in the last twenty yrs. it’s time we pass a fed law that criminalizes infringement of our 2nd ammendment rights . Any politician or govt employee (fed,state,county,local ) that attempts to pass laws,regulations,rules that infringe our rights, should be prosecuted as a felon. Perhaps a 2-5 yr prison term. If the infringement results in reducing the security of our citizens, then a charge of treason could be justified.

Congress needs to pass common sense federal gun legislation.

Tax credits for those purchasing gun safety gun safes.

Tax credits for buying gun safety practice ammunition.

Tax credits for taking gun safety marksmanship training.

Tax credits for purchasing gun safety training rifles, pistols, and shotguns.

Obama’s swing at “common sense” gun control is starting the pot boiling for the little froggies. Stay outta the pot, gun owners. You’ll be a State classified mental case and criminal before you know it.
