  • Doctors can report some mentally ill patients to FBI under new gun control rule

    Delivering on its promise to deliver "common sense" gun control, the Obama administration on Monday finalized a rule that enables health care providers to report the names of mentally ill patients to an FBI firearms background check system. The action was one of a series of steps that President Barack Obama had called for in January 2013 in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings to curb gun violence, but the rule was not published until today. While the 1993 Brady law prohibits gun ownership by individuals who have been involuntarily committed, found incompetent to stand trial or otherwise deemed...
  • Obama’s Executive Gun Control: No Minimum Before Private Gun Sales Require Background Checks

    Full title: Obama's Executive Gun Control: No Minimum Threshold Before Private Gun Sales Require Background Checks On January 4, the White House released a fact sheet which previews the executive gun control Obama will announce Tuesday, and it reveals there is no numerical threshold of sales that a private seller has to cross before being considered "engaged in the business of dealing in firearms."In other words, previous hints that there would be a "trigger"--a certain number of guns that a private seller had to sell before being considered "engaged in the business"--are now out the window. Figures like those reported...

    President Barack Obama wept openly Tuesday as he delivered a forceful defense of new executive actions on gun violence, a set of modest proposals to tighten loopholes that likely face quick legal challenges and could be vulnerable to reversal by a Republican White House. The president ran through a list of mass shootings that have happened during his time in office, and teared up as he recalled the schoolchildren gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012. "First graders in Newtown. First graders," Obama said, pausing to collect himself. "Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad. And...
  • Phony Fascist Tears: Obama Cries During Gun Control Speech

    01/05/2016 10:55:23 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 54 replies
    Obama wiped away tears from his face about five different times during his speech, pausing frequently to add more emotion and gravity to the event. He also deviated several times from his prepared remarks to add more feeling to the text. Members of Obama’s staff were also wiping away tears as the president spoke as members of Congress sat silently in the room. Senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Health and Human Secretary Sylvia Burwell, and FBI directer James Comey attended the speech.

    President Obama‘s press secretary cited “30,000 gun deaths in America” as the reason his boss should end-run Congress to implement new gun controls–but he omitted a key fact. Press Secretary Josh Earnest answered a reporter’s question if there was any opposition to the president’s plan to take executive action to close a so-called “gun show loophole” while making private gun sales more difficult for citizens. Looking down at his talking points, he started reeling off statistics about gun deaths, police shot, and other violent crimes committed with guns. But he missed the part where 20,000 of those gun deaths were by...

    Bearing Arms ^ | 1/5/16 | Bob Ownes
    Unable to ram his attacks on the Second Amendment through Congress, a bitter Barack Obama has been reduced to pushing his Executive Branch powers to the the breaking point with a series of “executive orders” that the White House finally outlined last night. They range from open lies, to empty threats, to harassment, to a few things that might actually be very beneficial to some gun owners, to a Orwellian scheme that could get many law enforcement officers and military servicemen killed. Let’s jump right into what these executive orders outline, and separate Obama’s bluster from reality by dissecting his...

    He's so method. Yes, I know there are really tears there. So how can I say they’re fake? Come on. You’ve never heard of method acting? How do you think those people in dramas produce the tears? They’re “real” too, but they have nothing to do with any sort of real emotion. They’re either so deep in character that they’re got themselves momentarily convinced the emotion is real, or they’re method acting, which means they’re reaching back to some sort of real tear-jerker from their life to produce the tears. If you really think this fraud is upset about the...

    President Barack Obama held an emotional press conference in the Rose Garden this afternoon reacting to the failure of legislation to expand background checks on gun sales in the Senate. After being introduced by the father of a child killed at last years shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, Obama attributed the defeat of the bipartisan background check compromise to untruths about the bill spread by the National Rifle Association. The current leader of the nra used to support these background checks. So while this compromise didnt contain everything I wanted or everything that these families wanted, it did represent progress. It...
  • Barack Obama can't pass gun control despite 90 per cent support.

    The Telegraph ^ | April 18th, 2013 | Tim Stanley
    Yesterday, the most modest of gun control proposals died in the Senate. It would have expanded background checks to people purchasing weapons at gun shows and online sales, enjoyed 90 per cent support among the public and came on the back of the tragedy at Newtown. Yet, despite all that it had going for it, the Toomey-Manchin bill raised just 54 votes six short of the number necessary for passage. This is a pretty shameful day for Washington, said Obama afterwards. It wasnt exactly a red letter day for him, either. Barack Obama is a lame duck president. Nobody...

    President Barack Obama pushed back Thursday against suggestions that the prospects for passing federal gun-control measures are fading, admonishing Congress not to get squishy on the issue. The president, who appeared frustrated by lawmakers lack of action, made a forceful plea to remember the horror of the December massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and to take steps aimed at preventing future gun violence. Less than 100 days ago that happened, and the entire country was shocked, Mr. Obama said. And the entire country pledged we would do something about it and that this time would be different....

    National Review Online ^ | January 17, 2013 | John Fund
    Of all the gun-control measures touted by President Obama on Wednesday, the one that got top billing was a dramatic tightening of background checks on gun purchasers. Obama himself said the need was urgent because “40 percent of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check.” But before we make the most sweeping changes in federal firearms law since the 1960s, shouldn’t we at least examine the validity of that figure? It’s about as dubious as they come.The administration is focusing on background checks in an attempt to drive a wedge between staunch anti-gun-control absolutists such as the...

    President Obama is tripling the number of Cabinet agencies with gun control law enforcement responsibilities in his new bid to track guns, adding six agencies to the three typically included--Justice, Homeland Security and Defense. Section 1.e of his executive order released Wednesday adds State, Treasury, Interior, Agriculture, Energy, and Veterans Affairs. It reads: "For purposes of this memorandum, 'Federal law enforcement agencies' means the Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, the Interior, Agriculture, Energy, Veterans Affairs, and Homeland Security, and such other agencies and offices that regularly recover firearms in the course of their criminal investigations as the President...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Braced for a fight, President Barack Obama on Wednesday unveiled the most sweeping proposals for curbing gun violence in two decades, pressing a reluctant Congress to pass universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. A month after that horrific massacre, Obama also used his presidential powers to enact 23 measures that don't require the backing of lawmakers. The president's executive actions include ordering federal agencies to make more data available for background checks, appointing a director of the Bureau of Alcohol,...
