Obama: Gun Control Won't Lead to Confiscation Because 'I Am Constrained by a System Our Founders
The Blaze ^ | 4/3/13 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 04/03/2013 6:58:38 PM PDT by Nachum

DENVER (TheBlaze/AP) — Ratcheting up pressure for Congress to limit access to guns, President Barack Obama said Wednesday that recent steps by Colorado to tighten its gun laws show “there doesn’t have to be a conflict” between keeping citizens safe and protecting Second Amendment rights to gun ownership.

“I believe there doesn’t have to be a conflict in reconciling these realities,” Obama said in Denver, where he stepped up his call for background checks for all gun purchases and renewed his demand that Congress at least vote on banning assault weapons and limiting access to large-capacity ammunition magazines.

The president dismissed gun owners’ concerns that gun control legislation could be a stepping stone to gun confiscation in the U.S., saying “I am constrained by a system our founders put in place.”

And the Enabling Act was only supposed to be for four years and American boys weren’t going to be sent half way around the world to do what Vietnamese boys should’ve been doing themselves.

And that also means you can’t try to go around the Second Amendment either, dear leader...but that’s asking for too much thinking on your part.

Actually, 2banana, I doubt that. The Second American Revolution would have taken place during the first six months of Franklin Roosevelt's first term, and we'd most probably still be living in freedom.

Where's that guy who decodes what 0bama means when he speaks in code. What 0bama REALLY MEANS here is that he WOULD ORDER CONFISCATIONS were it not for the Constitution. Since when does the Constitution stop Marxist 0bama anyway?

Also, note how 0bama thinks in a Dictatorial way.. "..because I am constrained..", whereby our representative government doesn't even cross his mind. What an A-HOLE!!!!!

***I Am Constrained by a System Our Founders***

Forty three years ago there was much worry about an executive order that would allow the President to take on DICTATORIAL POWERS during an emergency.

What would prevent Obama from signing an updated version of this E-Order and ordering the confiscation of all guns!

NEVER REGISTER YOUR GUNS!

“I am constrained by a system our founders put in place.”

Is this not tantamount to an admission that, if he had his 'druthers, Obama would confiscate our guns?

And have we not learned that Obama will ignore the Constitution whenever he thinks he can get away with it?

The thinking of a wanna be dictator who can't figure out how to circumvent the structure of the U.S. government without being escorted to Leavenworth or run out of the country.

In his second inaugural address, 0 proclaimed, “While freedom is a gift from God, it is secured by His people here on Earth.”
Then he expressed his intentions to battle ‘global warming,’ institute ‘immigration reform’ and seek ‘gun control.’
Sorry about all the scare marks, but we know what he wants because he’s told us: millions of tax dollars for bogus green boondoggles, millions of new demo-voters and ... our guns. Period.
Molon labe!

When you listen to the nation's Liar In Chief on any subject I always wander back to:

"If you like your Doctor you can keep your doctor."

"If you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance."

"Your health insurance premiums will go down."

As an Illinois state senator, Obama opposed gay marriage. During both inaugurations, he also swore – with his hand on the bible – to uphold the laws of the land.

"If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that."

In a June 2012 with the White House press corps, Obama said that the "private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy is in the state and local government."

Obama's INS documents at the national archives are missing for the entire week (around August 1961) in which Ann Dunham was supposed to have returned to the United States with young Barack in tow.

"Let me be absolutely clear: if you are a family making less than $250,000 a year . . . you will not see your taxes go up."

Oh well we could go on for at least another 100 famous quotes, but you get the point - anytime his pie hole opens out pops another one.

2A is there for the very reason he spouts - but he and his RAT party like to stop before the part about ".....shall not be infringed."

If he ever leaves office I suspect the media will never mention his name. And if it does, it’ll be something negative about obamacare. To this day you don’t hear the media saying anything about Carter. They’d like to pretend he never existed.

It is all a ruse to make the people/sheep subject to his nifty swift reversals. He thinks running a nation is tantamount to running a shifty basketball team. This guy can’t utter a honest and believable word because he just isn’t programmed to be such a person. His words are social and political quicksand waiting for the gullible 50+or- & the other people in this Country.

The question is quite a royal pain in the family jewel box as to the degree in which the Royal Kenyan Coals sac may be
1.subjected to being constrained
2. the extent of which the constraining process is allowed
to go on
3. The degree in which constraining extends to a point where the royal family coals are the world's first black diamonds.
