Skip to comments.Obama’s traveling gun show - President hits the road to spread anti-Second Amendment message
Posted on 02/06/2013 12:52:39 PM PST by neverdem
President Obama hit the road Monday on a nationwide gun-grabbing tour. His show doesnt have many fans inside the Beltway, since being seen favoring gun control can be the kiss of death for senators with rural constituencies. So Mr. Obama is trying to shore up fence-sitting members by bringing his community organizing skills to their districts.
On Wednesday, Mr. Obama will be in Annapolis to address the Maryland Democratic Senate Caucus retreat on the same day that the state Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee holds a hearing on expanding existing gun restrictions. Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley is pushing the General Assembly to reduce the arbitrary magazine capacity limit from 20 to 10 rounds and prohibit all assault weapons Current owners would have to register their guns with the state police by November. The Maryland proposal would also require a license to rent or buy a handgun.
Those applying for such a license would have to take an eight-hour gun class, much like the course that was recently abandoned in the District after Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy L. Lanier testified it was unnecessary.
Mr. O'Malley would exempt shotguns and hunting rifles from the licensing requirement, even though some permissible firearms can fire more powerful rounds than the vilified AR-15 style black rifles he wants completely outlawed.
The gun-rights group Maryland Shall Issue is arranging pro-gun testimony and a rally outside the capitol in protest. O'Malleys bill does nothing to reduce crime it would ban firearms that the FBI says are not even used in violent crimes in Maryland, said Patrick Shomo, the organizations president...

Skeeter hits the road...
President hits the road to spread anti-Constitution message
Mt. Rushmore looms every time he flies past it.
> ... would exempt shotguns and hunting rifles ...
Nowhere in the Constitution is hunting mentioned.
The right to bear arms is to make sure citizens can overpower a federal army and change a government wanting to take away their liberties.

Obama can not lead a People that refuse to follow.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, ...................”
What would Mr. Obama be doing today if the Newton CT massacre never happened?
The bastard is doing this to take focus off his economic failures. Don’t let him do it!
How many presidential debates focused on this key issue of his second term?
No required federal budget for four years in a row, out of control federal spending & borrowing and Obummer has plenty of time to travel for anti-gun dog & pony shows. Ugh!
Who is paying for this campaign trip?
On Wednesday, Mr. Obama will be in Annapolis to address the Maryland Democratic Senate Caucus retreat on the same day that the state Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee holds a hearing on expanding existing gun restrictions.
NOT a coincidence! The city’s traffic system was in total lockdown. The many people expected to attend the Senate hearing this afternoon/evening have been severely inconvenienced.
Why are the Democrat Senators not in DC where they are supposed to be working? It’s Wednesday, fgs, It can hardly be considered an extended weekend!
Spending our money to run around and preach to the deep blue choirs. (Unless he thinks that the Democrat Caucus of the Maryland State House disagrees with him on this.....HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW!!!!!)
BEWARE the UN Small Arms Treaty.
By signing that treaty, and Harry Reid not putting it up for a vote, the US can still be bound by the terms of the treaty until it is rejected.
It bypasses the House of Representatives AND
nulifys the second amend.
Bookmark. I need to resize that and make a decal for the back of my truck.
What part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” does he not understand? Among other crimes, 0bama doing this is grounds for impeachment; INFRINGING upon the NON-NEGOTIABLE RIGHTS OF MAN GIVEN BY GOD.
This way, if the owner were to use the gun in a criminal act, the state police could track it back to the original owner.
Which is why we need to have universal dna samples taken for everyone in the USA. It will allow anyone committing a sex crime to be identified by the benevolent government. Every woman would have to register, since they have vaginas, therefore them might commit acts of prostitution. And since men are equipped with a penis, they would have to register, since they might someday commit an act of rape.
Of course, none of these registration schemes would ever stop one of the crimes the proponents of registration claim to be fighting. But it doesn't really matter whether or not it will actually work... You just have to do "something." Besides, registration will make it easier to round people up when the time comes.
It’s Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Gun-Grab Band.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
This is proof of why we need the Second Amendment, now more than ever. See tag line.
By "customary international law" (i.e.; State Department whim) and the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (which we never ratified), you are correct sir! And, I might add, one of the few who really gets it. Yet Kyoto was rejected and FedGov is STILL forcing carbon emission reductions anyway! Ain't gobble grub-a-mint one-duh-full?
BTW, if Reid gets REALLY sneaky, "two-thirds of the Senators present" can ratify that beast with only 34 votes.
I just don’t get it - he’s preaching to the believers, so how on earth does all the expense, etc. for travel, etc. gain him converts to his plan?
Doesn’t he have other things to do?
On the other hand, perhaps this effort has a silver lining in that he’s not doing other things that may cause even more trouble coming our way.
Anything to keep from actually sitting in the Oval Office and working on the real problems of Amerika.
Outstanding response as always . . . and hasn’t this SOB already won a 2nd term? WTF? God knows I hate this POS!
what a looser...when he comes on TV...off mine goes...I can't stand to listen to him nor watch him read from a telly...
What, with torchlight parades, big marching bands with lots of glockenspiels, long-winded rants against the "Jew pig", etc., etc., etc.? Hey, totalitarian racism worked once ..... sorta. Go for it! < /s>
Oh, come ON! You're so unfair! Who would ever have a problem with Mooch?
(And her perpetual scowl, and her 17" pythons ....)
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
Thanks for the ping!
“Obama’s Travelling Gun Show”
More like selling snake oil and kool aid.
nothing can nullify an inalienable right.
My question is, Isn’t Obama guilty of treason? It states “The Constitution confines the crime of treason to two species; First, the levying of war against the United States; and Secondly, adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” He attempts to circumvent the Constitution, and casually threatens the possibility of taking American lives with drones (remember the article about the right to kill Americans on American soil without trial?) It also states, “and that if any person or persons, having knowledge of the commission of any of the treasons aforesaid, shall conceal, and not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President of the United States, or some one of the Judges thereof, or to the President or Governor of a particular State, or some one of the Judges or Justices thereof, such person or persons, on conviction, shall be adjudged guilty of misprision of treason, and shall be imprisoned not exceeding seven years, and fined not exceeding one thousand dollars.” So why is he getting away with it and why are we letting him? Although it may be ‘internal’ it’s still a war against the people of the United States of America being supported by his cronies in Congress. He won’t even allow us to review his past records. How and why is he getting away with what he is doing? This is a serious question.
