In 2008 unions tried to assure Americans that Barack Obama would not take their guns.

Great meeting, Joe.
After sitting down for a meeting at the White House with Vice President Joe Biden, the NRA blasted the Obama Administration for its assault on the Second Amendment. In a written statement the NRA said,
“We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen.”
FOX News reported:

The National Rifle Association emerged from a meeting Thursday with Vice President Biden and accused his gun violence task force of leading an “attack” on the Second Amendment — just hours after Biden gave a glimpse into the gun-control recommendations expected to hit the president’s desk in a matter of days.

The vice president said earlier that “an emerging set of recommendations” focuses on launching “universal” background checks, restricting high-capacity magazines and allowing federal agencies to do more research on gun violence.

He revealed where the task force was headed a day after drawing outrage from Republican lawmakers by saying the administration might use “executive orders” to implement some policies. He said he plans to have the recommendations, which are not yet final, to President Obama by Tuesday.

But the NRA, after sitting down with Biden and other firearms groups Thursday afternoon, blasted the effort as primarily focused on restricting gun rights.

“We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment,” the group said in a written statement. “While claiming that no policy proposals would be ‘prejudged,’ this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners — honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans.

  1. Just wait until we learn what Obama REALLY meant when he told Putin he’d have more flexibility after the election.

    Buckle up.

  2. Speaking of VP’s (ones that say one thing and do another)…

    The meeting, while not contentious, was, according to staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, miserable. The mostly left-leaning group—some still in denial —weren’t buying what Al Jazeera was selling. The “new” American Al Jazeera will, according to Shihabi, appeal to the American audience with a mixture of national and international news—and, of course, entertainment.

    One person at the meeting, who has already announced that she’s leaving, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, tried to ask about severance packages for those who wouldn’t be staying. “This isn’t the place to discuss this!” Hyatt barked at her. “After that, everyone kept their questions pretty much to themselves,” according to the staff member.

    How do they feel about Gore the savior of green energy now?

    The displeasure with Gore among the staff was thick enough to cut with a scimitar. “We all know now that Al Gore is nothing but a bulls***ter,” said the staffer bluntly. “We do stories on the tax code, and he sells the network before the tax code kicked in? Al was always lecturing us about green. He kept his word about green all right—as in cold, hard cash!”

    Probably already been posted…but fun to read a second time –

  3. And just eight days later Obama spoke these words at the Air Force base in Colorado Springs, Colorado (July 8, 2008):

    “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

    Police with military power? Nah, he doesn’t want to disarm anybody.

  4. I suspect the opening moments of today’s meeting between Uncle Joey Biden and the NRA went something like this:

    NRA Rep: “Mr. Vice President, thank you for inviting us. We’ve brought some serious proposals to the table that we think will be helpful, interesting, and worthy of discussion.”

    Biden: “Yeah, that’s nice. HEY LOOK, SQUIRREL!”

  5. Not concerned about “universal” background checks? Just wait until they change the rules, as they did in Oregon.

    After easily purchasing a firearm one fall, then purchasing another firearm the next spring, all of a sudden a 35+ year old false “report surfaced,” which forced me to take another 4 months to prove it never happened. The “report” was non-specific and unrecorded anywhere. They didn’t even know what year it had supposedly occurred.

    There were apologies afterward when they admitted they were looking for any excuse to stop or slow legal firearms sales. They were hoping that folks would simply give up.

    Get ready for a brand new set of criteria when the obamster is through with this nonsense.

  6. Gun confiscation is the left’s wet dream they’re not going to let the death of kids go to waste. Those bastards have no shame.

  7. Hiding all my guns. When they come to confiscate them, they will have to go to the extreme part of the state to find them. Having owned, fired, and recreated for 50 years, I’m not about to give them up now. Send my mail to jail, or the gulag, wherever they send the uncompliant.

  8. #3. Obama didn’t say police with military power, it was civilian national security force.
    What about the Homeland Security FEMA Corps first-responders?

  9. It has nothing to do with the death of those children as they most likely orchestrated the whole slaughter. It has everything to do with rendering the American people defenceless, so Obama can go full steam ahead with his communist agenda….and you can’t do that when the American people are able to fight back. People are onto Obama, because as soon as he started talking gun restrictions, the American people went shopping in a big way for guns and ammunition. No one is trusting Obama and his peons.

  10. …it will be registration of all guns with an outlawing of all semi-automatic weapons. Then the Prez will bring Holder into the picture with a discussion of why we even need a Second Amendment. All this will be accomplished by Obama executive order.

  11. Just remember; Under this criminal regime, your Constitutional Rights are what they damn well tell you they are. Or so Obama thinks. When Obama issues his so called executive order abrogating your Constitutional Rights, the correct and only response will be, #uck you. This will start a groundswell of resentment and hatred and resistance to the Fed Gov’t not seen since Prohibition, which the progressives also inflicted upon Citizens.

  12. he wants to disarm the public… so that dems can make it legal
    to eat your pets (dogs, gerbils, rats, cats, etc.) and so that they can marry your children
    if they are 6+ …this isn’t possible if you have guns for protection…

    because you’ll shot them in the face before they get within 10 feet.

  13. ++

    Gun Advocates Celebrate ‘Secret’ Obamacare Provision
    Forbidding Exec Order To Regulate Guns And Ammo ….

    [As for Reid’s reasons for burying a pro-gun measure into the body of the
    Affordable Care Act, the Majority Leader is said to have been concerned
    that the NRA planned to take an active position against the passage of
    Obamacare and decided, no doubt with the permission of Reid’s friend,
    NRA boss Wayne LaPierre, to head the problem off at the pass by putting
    language in the bill that would mollify the gun lobby.

    Further, there was concern that a conspiracy theory then in circulation
    among right - wing circles — a meme suggesting that the Obama
    Administration had cleverly planted language in the ACA that could be
    used as a tool to get to the guns—would further erode public support
    for the legislation. For these reasons, Reid determined to insert some
    cozy language for the gun people into the Senate version of the ACA
    — language certain to escape public review at a time when the
    conversation was far more focused on hot button subjects like death
    panels, taxes and mandates.
    ]

    if there’s anything these power hungry narcissists that
    rule the roost know how to do, it’s how to plan ahead,
    lets just hope & pray we won’t be losing ours any time
    soon.. *sigh*

    This Is How a Secret Gun Provision
    Made its Way Into Obamacare Legislation

    [The Washington Post first reported on Dec. 30 about the presence of
    this controversial wording. Under a section with the headline “Protection
    of Second Amendment Gun Rights,” the NRA-advocated wording is nestled
    deep within the law. The Post called the inclusion, “a largely overlooked but
    significant challenge to a movement in American medicine to treat firearms
    as a matter of public health.”

    You do not understand the implications of the words “Just as powerful.”

    Homeland security and FEMA (which is not a national security force) were already here. He was talking about something different.

    po·lice [puh-lees] Show IPA noun, verb, po·liced, po·lic·ing.
    noun
    1.
    Also called police force. an organized civil force for maintaining order, preventing and detecting crime, and enforcing the laws.

    National civilian security force just as powerful as the military = federal police.

  15. @bear
    Possible that Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t want America Gun Owners unarmed because he’s scared they will retaliate after his Fast Furious Scandal with Mafia style Mexican Drug Cartel and Arab Iran China Russia North Korea ready to destroy America.

  16. @Flintstone F
    civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
    It’s Brown Shirt SS to disarm the masses just like Hitler done to Germany.
