Skip to comments.Obama talks of limiting some gun use in wake of Colorado massacre

President Obama has added his voice to the push for limits on Americans' gun use in the wake the massacre last week at a movie theater in Colorado.
Obama, speaking Wednesday evening to the National Urban League, affirmed his belief in Americans' right to own guns, but he singled out assault rifles as better suited for soldiers than civilians.
"I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms," Obama said. "But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not on the streets of our cities."

How to stop a massacre
Thanks! It is old, but man does hit hit the bullseye
And somebody on foodstamps should not be allowed to vote. Deal bro.
How about some US Marshals and an arrest warrant instead.
Wait, that's already illegal?!
I don’t trust Romney any more than Obama on this issue. I do trust a Republican House and (hopefully) Senate to hold the line on 2A rights however. Not sure I trust the SCOTUS on the matter of another AWB either.
Right - when they talk about gun control, it’s controlling those they can, decent Americans. They know they can’t disarm the street gangs because they don’t care about law. They can only prevent law abiding citizens from protecting themselves from those gangs, and the government.
Liberal socialist believe that the second amendment only provides a right to hunting rifles. While we arm terrorist in Libya to over throw their corrupt government, Americans are to be left with single shot rifles and slingshots only after acquiring a permit (permission) from their government and next the UN!
Yeah. In his first act he took Romneys socialized healthcare plan and idea for an auto bailout.
Maybe in the 2nd term, he could use Romneys assault weapons ban in Mass as a blueprint.
Come on now, this is about Obama.
Just go along with the GOP liberals, OK?
Nope they do belong in citizens hands. So we can take down crazies like this guy. Or anyone ele who poses an immediate threat to law abiding citizens.
If Obama made that gesture at a publik skool they’d suspend or expel him.
In the great picture you posted, “The Founder’s Intent,” it appears that the Continental Army soldier on the lower right is wishing that he had an AK-47 at that moment. ;-)
[Little humor there. AR-15s are fine when kept clean. So are AK variants. I was issued M-16s, M-203s and several other weapons for duty for a few years. ...carried ‘em for at least 100s of miles and many, many days and nights...fired ‘em for many, many hours on ranges.]
And good point on “Founders’ Intent.”
What an idiot our soldiers don’t use ak-47’s. Did he just elevate al-qada terrorist to the rank of Soldiers? Don’t look for the media to make hay out of this they are too busy still giggling about what newspapers Sarah Palin reads....
or wait I know because he intends to gut the DOD budgets to pay for more welfare give aways, what he means is our soldiers will be using the old AK-47’s that they collect on the battlefield
Obama is so out of touch it is scary.
I'll go out on a limb here but It's reasonable to assume that they wanted the Militia armed with the finest weapons available.
Bingo. Give that man a cigar.
First thing in my head when I saw this was Uncle Rahm and his famous crisis/waste comment.
It'd be interesting to see what's in Obummer's own file.
He has abandonment issues from both his father AND mother running out on him.
He abused cocaine, pot, and who knows what other drugs.
He was indoctrinated as a child in antiAmerican rhetoric by socialists.
He's one screwed up nutcase venting against America.
