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."

Because everyone knows that the Second Amendment was put in place to protect the peoples' right to hunt and target shoot.
Yeah, AK-47's are outdated. We should all have AK-103's. Or the -104.
Though I'd be perfectly willing to settle for semi-auto versions in the above, or semi-auto versions of M-14, or FN-FAL. A guy can only carry so much ammo...
Does anyone make a 'semi' version of the modernized Galil? (that would be nice!)
Just for hanging on the wall and admiring, of course.
But the guy wants "AK-47's "in the hands of soldiers?" Our own soldiers don't field that weapon. Hmmm, he thinks the old Soviet-bloc type soldiers, and the turd worlders should have them?
Whose side is this guy on? Those are the guys who should be disarmed. With those seized weapons passed out to U.S. citizenry. For wall hangings, of course. Mementos to peace, we could call them.
Shhh, we don't want to confuse people with the facts.
Soldiers. With AK's.
Not "our" guys, or hardly any soldiers of nations much aligned with us...
A right ever repressed by tyrants but always held by common man.
A right ever repressed by tyrants but always held by common man.
The AK-47 is used by the types of soldiers Obama approves of not by American soldiers. He is such a dope.
Man, he’s dumb. I can’t believe he would touch this issue with a 10 foot pole. Gun control, at least on the national scene, is SUCH a losing issue. Good luck with that, Barack.
“...illegal guns in the hands of street hoods that are doing all the killing...”
...illegal guns in the hands of his ‘sons’ that are doing the killing...
“If somebody doesn’t like it he or she should go somewhere else!”
...back to Kenya, and yesterday would not be too soon...but take Reid, Schummer, Pelosi, Holder et al with you, please...
Oh-Bah-Mah probably thinks that “the right to bear arms” has something to do with wearing sleeveless shirts.
That’s why TOTUS goes with him everywhere he goes.
I went to my doctor for a regular checkup the other day he spent an extra 10 minutes on the computer putting in all my info as per Obama Care law I asked only about the new computers in the exam room he stated he now has to register all info to the government he was not happy about it at all as was his nurse. The government will at a key stroke bring up all your medical records at will any item they deem can and will be used to prevent you from getting a CCW mark my words folks its coming. Lock and load.
Going in to a firefight, Obama is the kind of idiot who would say, “Gee, I wish I’d brought less ammo.”
They can’t profile Jihadis, but they can profile gun owners.
Holmes couldn’t have pulled the shooting off on his own, he had to have help from the government. The government made sure that nobody could have a gun to shoot back with; in Obama’s words, “Someone Else Made That Happen!”
Obama throwing a bone to his progressive base so they can say (on MSNBC) that Obama has taken a better ‘position’ on this than Romney and attack Romney, as they did last night.
They were getting pretty frustrated waiting for this. Obama wants to play it both ways on guns as with the tax issue: Example : he says he wants to raise taxes ‘on the rich’ while saying he never raised taxes, (not technically true as there are taxes in Obama-care). Same with guns. He's not proposing any gun control laws :wink, wink.
Do you know what the difference between mitt and obama is... on gun control? mitt has signed the worst anti Second Amendment legislation in the entire USA into law... and obama hasn't... yet!

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:
"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

I understand that the market price of a US legal, registered, full-auto AK-47 is $15-$20k. As a result, I'd guess that the number of homicides committed in the US with legal, registered full-auto AK-47s since 1986 is pretty close to zero.
Mikhail Kalashnikov designed the AK-47 in 1947, so there are newer and better designs in use throughout the world.
"AK-47s are very safe firearms that belong in the hands of collectors and gun enthusiasts" would be a statement that I would agree with.
