Obama Announces Plans to Pass New Restrictions on Gun Ownership in America

Back in 2008 Barack Obama promised supporters:
“I’m not going to take your guns away. That just ain’t true.”

Fast forward to 2012…
Today Barack Obama announced that he hopes to pass new restrictions on gun ownership in America.
The Hill reported:

President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.

“I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

In the wake of the Dec. 14 mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., school, the president has launched a White House task force led by Vice President Biden to present proposals in January to help stem gun violence. Obama has said that he would seek a broad approach to the problem addressing the role of violence in entertainment and measures to improve mental healthcare.

But he has also called on Congress to move quickly to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines.

Obama on Sunday repeated those calls and said he would meet with lawmakers on both sides of the aisles to see action.

“I’ve been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” the president said.

    Hitler, Stalin and other despots always start with dis arming the general population, and once achieved it never ends well for those who capitulate to tyranny.

    And once he gets all the guns, then maybe we’ll finally find out what really happened in Benghazi.

    Seriously, I believe they may be connected. It made political sense for Team O to lie about Benghazi before the election, but why are they still stalling now?

    They are obviously waiting for something to happen before Hillary is allowed to testify … but what?

    There will not only be resistance. There will be armed resistance. There will be blood.

    The best way to stave off “blood” is to be clearly and overwhelmingly prepared for it. Let me put in a shameless plug for my book RESISTANCE TO TYRANNY, available from Amazon. It’s a primer on how to conduct an armed revolt. If it’s clear that’s a possibility, it may not be necessary.

    He always meant to do this. Now he has ‘more flexibility’ in his second term.

    Since most gun violence in my town is gang based, I’d like to know how he intends to enforce laws on individuals who are likely illegally in possession of the weapons. When they take guns away from law abiding citizens, we will be at the mercy of the minority gang bangers who are rapidly invading once safe neighborhoods. The lives lost at Sandy Hook will be miniscule compared to those killed by the violent and unopposed young men already terrorizing the cities of this country. You need look only at Chicago 2012.

    Obama really should attach an expiration date to every single word that he utters.

    Restrictions does not equal taking your guns away. People don’t need military style weapons only their personal arsenals. Tax and regulate guns to pay for the armed guards and mental health facilities that you all think is going to solve the problems.

  • Patty

    Assault weapons will always get into the hands of criminals. Our police and military need to keep up with the criminal who doesn’t care how they purchase a gun or who they kill when using them.

    Those in Washington are fooling themselves if they really believe punishing the many for actions of a few is the answer. They will be hard pressed if they take guns out of the hands of the righteous gun owners.

    Lanza had emotional and mental problems and a very irresponsible parent and home life.

    Feinstein is speaking now.

    Will he go after himself for fast n furious and will he go after the guns he sold illegally to drug dealers.until he admits it. STFU

    It’s just simply unbelievable how team Obama and the dems (who, lets cut the sh** and admit it–are looking more and more like some of the most adept strategists in world history) is running circles around the GOP. It’s just unfair. If it was a boxing match, it would have been stopped a long time ago. If it was a Super Bowl, it would be 50-3 in the third quarter.

    Hey, anyone with a brain out there reading this? You do understand the master strategy with this gun crap, right? Come on…it really isn’t too hard to understand–although the dim bulb GOP won’t be able to grasp it. Anyone? Anyone at all up to understanding it?

    It’s simple. Get the GOP to focus on this stupid issue. Get them to spend their energy fighting this non battle, while the dems quietly go about slotting in their economy killing EPA/tax/regulations measures.

    Yup, that’s right, stupid GOP. Get mobilized. 2013 is going to be the year of the gun laws. Spend your time focussing on that.

    It’s just too easy. It’s like the GOP bringing everyone up onto the line (including the safeties) to stop the run. The dems have a wide open pass opportunity, and you can bet your confused sad sack asses they’re going to take it.

    Like I said, the GOP is so outclassed they have no business even being in the game. The dems, probably 2 hours after Sandy Hook saw this fanstastic opportunity.

    Meanwhile, utterly pathetic weaklings like Senators Grassley and Issa do nothing but hold an occasional hearing. Take a look at the Democrats relentless vigor during Watergate: people who are grounded in principle (regardless of its orientation) ACT, not wallow in ineffective, poorly staged bureaucratic process.

    In case the losers on the right (particularly those involved with the Republican party and those officials inside the beltway) haven’t noticed, Obama doesn’t use the system. He is its exception. This well studied communist radical we have in political office understands that, like Lenin and Stalin, the worst thing in the world is for him to be saddled to his predecessor’s government (this is why Obama continues to blame Bush — technically, he is right. He can’t do all that he wants because he has inherited the old system and it takes time to create a new totalitarian government that works without the impediment of the old system’s laws and regulations).

    Sadly, the Republic is defended by ineffectual old guards who, like the Prussian generals confounded by the “rule-breaking” Napoleon, cannot fathom how to slow their retreat when their enemy doesn’t follow rules. That Obama is now embracing the National Emergency (aka Reichstag fire) of a child-shooting media spectacle (which, as tragic as it is, doesn’t even statistically factor, compared to statistics like the number of children murdered by illegals, or the number of foster children killed through bureaucratic incompetence). He’s going after the unorganized militia’s guns because, simply put, that’s the only resistance left in the country.

    If you can get your fellow American to understand one single thing going into the new year, it needs to be this: There is no more organized resistance to Obama’s totalitarianism. The reason Boehner is behaving like an abused dog, tail tucked between its legs, peeing submissively on the carpet, is that he’s fighting for his own existence in the New Progressive Order. He wants his family to continue to have some minor protection and power. McCain, Lindsay Graham, Rince Priebus, Mitt Romney, Chuck Grassley, etc. are all unwilling to fight for Americans against the rise of America’s Reich. They think they can negotiate with this order and secure some guarantee that they’ll be left alone. Don’t think the Republicans blaming of the Tea Party for their failures, giving them cover to negotiate surrender with Obama, is accidental.

    The Obama Order is coming after your guns because you’re the last barrier to total control. Unless the House Tea Party members are able to wrap this administration up in all the scandals its held off so far, bogging it down for four years, the Republic is finished.

    ““I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said “

    Oath taken by our “Elected Representatives”:

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

    Any effort put forth by an elected official to diminish the value of the Constitution of the United States of America is evidence of breaking their oath of office.

    Mrs. Lincoln,
    Why don’t we use the billions that have been spent on the boondoggles called green energy where this President has given his friends gifts from our pockets. Or, perhaps we demand the full measure of the money that was “invested” in GM? I think 30 billion should cover the tab nicely for improved medical care for those with mental disorders. Perhaps we even have training for parents so they know how to be parents, something that appears to be lacking in our advanced society.

  • JDStone

    Liberals are the stupedest people on the planet.They make you believe they will solve the problem but make it much worse.Look at Chicago, run by leftists.Every city in this nation will be just like it.Here in Ca. it’s liberals run wild,unlivable in 2-3 years with the path of destruction we are on.We fought tyranny 236 years ago and won.We will do it again!!!

    Lincoln’s turd, we already tax them tax stupid liberals to pay for all their failures and massive debts and welfare parasites. Stop trying to punish legal citizens for exercising their rights. Stop Obama from selling guns to drug dealers and lying about it. Jail obama

    Well, it looks like jobs and the economy are slated to take a back seat yet again to some other “priority”…
