Obama Takes Gun-Control Campaign To Connecticut Again
http://www.nytimes.com/ ^ | April 8, 2013 | Jackie Calmes

Posted on 04/08/2013 12:47:44 PM PDT by Biggirl

WASHINGTON — President Obama is returning to Connecticut on Monday to again memorialize the victims of the school massacre there and to continue his push for what he calls “common-sense measures to reduce gun violence” at the start of a potentially make-or-break week for gun-control legislation in Congress.

Good grief....politicians using children as props is always reprehensible, but using dead children as props is nauseating.

A little humor from my email:

> So, I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, added an Obama bumper sticker and left a note that read, “I hope this helps!”

With Obama and the rest of the left, it was NEVER about the gun, its all about CONTROL..they are pursuing the same thing that Hitler pursued, take away the guns from law abiding citizens so they can control them

Didn't Saddam Hussein and Yassir Arafat also use dead children as props for their causes? 'Nuff said!

Notice how the First Coward loves to “sing to the choir”?

He goes to the heart of gun-hating Liberal-Land to give his gun control rants and bask in the adoration of the already converted.

I’d like to see the limp-wristed wimp take his travelling “Guns Are Bad” circus to places like Nelson, Georgia or Kennesaw, Georgia.

he has to go to connecticut. That is the only place where reporters can be controlled. His stops and REPORTERS SPECIFICALLY have to be shocked and awed into seeing ONLY second amendment supporters so they have nothing BUT second amendment support.

The medium is the message.

The middle finger has a specific meaning for tyrants.

Is there anybody in Connecticut willing to defend their kids against dumbasses like Lanza or take your pick? It looks to me like the same school shooting could happen again right now. Bitching about how many bullets a gun might hold reveals so incredibly much about the sizes of the minds of the bitchers as to be monumentally spectacular. Dunderheads understand overwhelming force and they will mind their manners when faced with it. But it ain’t in Connecticut.

Do not be surprised if a number of pro-2 amendment folks in the area closet to the University of Hartford will be using that big time.

“...Is there anybody in Connecticut willing to defend their kids against dumbasses like Lanza....”
The “unwashed masses” in CT have been dumbed down into low-information, low-intelligent “voters”. Liberalism (communism) is a chronic, no-cure, mental disease. Those people are literally the “walking dead” mentally speaking of course. Once the communists gather up all the guns and their opposition is swept away, the commies will annihilate these “useful idiots” by the millions....just like Stalin and a host of other commies have done. Constitution State? Ha, what a laugh that is!! How about Communist State? It’s so sad. The very cradle of where our original stand and fight for liberty took place has now become the nest for the communist takeover of the country. I would suspect the symbolism of it was planned from the get-go.

Colorado Sheriffs Sue Over New Gun Control Laws

“Yesterday Democratic Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed sweeping new gun control legislation into law prohibiting ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 15 rounds and criminalizing the transfer of private firearms. Before Hickenlooper’s signing, Colorado’s Weld County Sheriff John Cooke explained that the new law is pretty much unenforceable and confusing:

Weld County Sheriff John Cooke said he won’t enforce either gun-control measure waiting to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper, saying the laws are “unenforceable” and would “give a false sense of security.”

Cooke said Democratic lawmakers are uninformed but are scrambling in reaction to recent tragedies in the nation.

“They’re feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable,” he said.

Cooke said the bill requiring a $10 background check to legally transfer a gun would not keep firearms out of the hands of those who use them for violence.

“Criminals are still going to get their guns,” he said.

Cooke said the other bill would also technically ban all magazines because of a provision that outlaws any magazine that can be altered. He said all magazines can be altered to a higher capacity.

Cooke said he, like other county sheriffs, “won’t bother enforcing” the laws because it will be impossible for them to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners. He said he and other sheriffs are considering a lawsuit against the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.

Now, a lawsuit is being filed in federal against the state on behalf of sheriffs who were ignored during debate about the legislation.

The lead plaintiffs are sheriffs from around Colorado. They claim the laws violate not only the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms. but the 14th Amendment which requires laws to be easy to understand. ...”

Documentation File on the harmful impact of the Counterculture of Obamanation on America.

___________________

Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, 5 days before the end of GWB’s Presidential term, told ‘The Gullible’ the following: “We are five days away from FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!”

Going on 5 years now, the best friends that Obama could have had to help him achieve his above stated dastardly goal were the RINO leaderships in the US House and Senate, AND THEY ARE STILL IN POWER!

_____________________

IMHO, the Counterculture of Obamanation will continue to destroy America for as long as the US Congressional RINOs allow it to, and not one minute more!

Lets see, the cuts are so bad that our house is closed, the house we pay for so they can pretend they’re a royal family and yet his daughters go swanning about on vacation and he can travel to push his anti constitution agenda and his green failed energy.
Oh and why is the GOP silent yet again on why our house is closed

I am still shocked to see our house closed, knowing full well that family thinks it’s their house which we pay for and for our so called stupid party to not do a damn thing about it, infact the only people who have tried to do anything is a bunch of kids from IO.

They eat our food, use our money, have their concerts and parties, and then tell us we’re not allowed into our house at all which we pay for and not a dam thing from the stupid party
