problem is they are based in reality, mark. they are really going to get passed because, i don't know why...just because no one seems to be able to do more than talk, about stopping anything.
In Obamacare, there is a surprise legal prohibition that a lot of people think was put in there at the last moment by Sen. Harry Reid, that says, in effect, that gun owners will not be made to register guns. Pundits suggest that this was put in to the legislation so the NRA wouldn't cause problems with the passage of the law.
Obama's actions make perfect sense to me. The bottom line is, Obama doesn't think we need any guns and will not rest until there is total gun control just like there is in Europe. Obama's goal in life was to transform the United States into a European-style welfare state, and Europe has perhaps some of the strictest gun laws in the world. Few people can even own guns, let alone have lots of them. THAT is what Obama is pining for in this country. Always remember his comment in 2008 that Americans "Bitterly cling to their guns and religion." For a sick jerk that has no respect for either of those things and can't wait to see them go away, these new laws he unilaterally enacted make perfect sense.
I was hoping to come up with a great enlightening brilliant comment but all I can think to say is
P I S S ON O B A M A!
It would have been a lot more vile than that but a certain moderator lady asked me to keep it semi-clean.;)
Remember when Obama said we needed Obamacare because doctors couldn't be trusted? Because doctors would let a diabetic develop gangrene just to make money amputating their feet?
And now he wants to deputize these same people he said can't be trusted to ferret out gun "nuts?" Instead of turning the gun nuts in in, Obama should order the doctors to do amputations.
What can we expect from a communist would-be dictator? He went to communist school in Chicago.
Today, I learned on sun news network that Cuba is allowing selected Cubans to travel to the U.S. as refugees. The average income in Cuba is $19.00 per month. When they arrive in Florida, they know where to go to apply for assistance and receive $1,000. per month,tax free, which is returned to Cuba. Billions of dollars have already been paid in this scam. Why does Obama allow this? Well, he's friends with the Cuban communists.
In the meantime, Americans who need help have all kinds of rules to cope with,
“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
There can no longer be any doubt – the forces of tyranny are running wild across our once great Republic. The time has come for all good men and women to rally to the aid of their country. We have now entered a historic crossroads that will decide the destiny of the United States. Arrogance and corruption has long festered in Washington DC, but the last decade has seen an extreme acceleration of criminal looting and attacks on liberty – every freedom is under sustained assault.
We the People, the rightful masters of this Republic, will either rise up through Congress and the states or we can trade in our birthright of liberty for the chains of a technocratic slavery. Below we list some of the more egregious acts of seditious treason against the Republic of the United States. Anyone who wishes to continue to live in a free country and to pass that birthright on to their children must research this document and then lobby state legislatures and the Congress to do their duty and remove the would-be dictator.
The time has now come for a bill of impeachment to be introduced and debated in Congress. Obama’s crimes are public, and the debate in the House will serve as a court in which to display the tyrannical activities of President Obama and his cohorts. As in the case of Richard Nixon, the exposure of Obama’s crimes may cause him to resign in disgrace. If he does not step down, the full House will then vote to begin the impeachment trial in the US Senate. The time has now come to make your decision – to stand up to evil or get on your knees as a willing slave.

A thought on commonsense gun laws.
In NH when I recently went to the Doctor for a routine physical, they asked if we had guns in the home on the questionnaire they ask you to fill out. This has already been started. I advise everyone to respond no.
In NH when you fill out the routine questionaire at the doctors office they ask if you have any guns in your home.
Known threats should be taken seriously no matter what a person's medical condition is. It's just like not joking about a bomb in the airport! Political correctness won't save lives.
Are illegal aliens a known threat and I don't mean just Mexicans. Why isn't the Democratic party more concerned about MS13 gang or human trafficking than registered gun owners?
I have no idea what the Democrats are more concerned about. Apparently they think that by controlling the rights of law-abiding citizens, criminals will cease being criminals! I was just trying to make the point that we should take threats seriously - not just from "mentally ill" individuals.
Beck explains exactly what Agenda 21 is and how everyday Americans are already experiencing its implementation, perhaps without even realizing it. The videos that follow feature Agenda 21 experts — even one self-proclaimed “liberal democrat” — delving deeper into this sinister-sounding agenda. They discuss how the program has slipped under the radar, working its way into everyday life slowly but surely, and what the outcomes of full implementation would be.
For a comprehensive review of Agenda 21, please view TheBlaze Magazine’s feature story here.
Glad you brought it up, just sent 26 letters to VA Senators to prevent Agenda21 from local or partial implementation or any local from accepting Agenda21 monies. Not nearly enough public awarness on Agenda21. Reality is Agenda 21 is as dangerous to America as Obuma, maybe even more, if you could believe that.
Impeach and Imprison, obama, he continues to trample all over our Constitution and he will not stop until he has stripped away our freedom.
What the Government IS NOT telling you is.....Every Veteran Hospital and Outpatient Clinic is ALREADY doing this. For ANY routine check up, they are ALREADY asking if you "own a weapon" OR "do you have any weapons in your household"
Its ALREADY happening and Obamacare will only expand on Government Healthcare. They are using the same system for ALL Veterans.
I guess the people I see at the VA didn't get that memo????????? I have been in that system for 13 years, regularly visit 6 different departments in VA hospital plus my primary at the local clinic and in three different States. Never been asked about guns.
I went to a Chiropractor for an adjustment and "Do you own a gun or does anyone in your household own a gun" was a question I had to answer on the form. I asked him, if He owned a gun and could he be trusted as a doctor when owning such a dangerous weapon. He became indignant - and I said I felt the same way and tore up the form and left.
DHS targeted them in 2009
Glad Mark clarified a few things for me. I'm hoping the medical community will rise up and do battle on this.
Yes or no. If the Newtown killer had only a pistol or rifle, and not an assault weapon, would a few of the 26 people he murdered been able to escape? If even one person had escaped, isn't that reason enough to ban assault weapons? Isn't every life precious?
Hera's a few facts. Adam Lanza stole from his mother's safe, 4 hand guns and an AR-15. He left the AR-15 in his vehicle where it was found by Police unused. He used the 4 hand guns to kill 26 innocents. Personally, I blame President Carter for making it so hard for the mentally deficent to get the help they need so badly.
Yes Kal, EVERY life is precious ! If someone picks up a rock or a stick and hits someone else with it, that item has become an assault weapon. If the person being assaulted also has a rock or a stick, then that person has a chance to defend themselves. There is a saying we were taught during childhood: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me". Laws are words and a criminal mindset is what it is. I believe everyone has the right and duty to arm themselves in defense of aggression and tyranny to the best of their ability. That is how this Great Nation was founded and it is OUR duty to preserve it INTACT for those to come. Peace be with you.
If only we removed cars from people there would be no fatal accidents, same for knives. If we did away with electricity there would be no electric fires in homes. If we would just pass more laws - everyone would be safe and at the same time a prisoner. An assult like weapon is not an automatic military weapon.
Obama should concentrate on the illegal weapons in Chicago, where he was a community organizer - evidently not too successful I might add.
I say ban fire! What good has it done? Thousands of innocent men, women, and children are injured and killed because of fire. If only fire could be controlled, then we wouldn't have so many senseless deaths as a result. We need a set of laws to ban certain types of fire and control how one uses fire in our society. We need a registry to track all of those who purchase and possess matches, lighters, rubbing sticks, and anything else used to make, ignite, or start a fire. We need to require all who seek to use fire to carry permits. We need mandatory fire ignition safety courses. If you don't have a fire permit and you start a fire, you may go to jail. We need to keep matches, lighters, and other sources of fire ignition out of the hands of the mentally ill and unstable. Gas ranges should be prohibited. Gas furnaces should be outlawed. Gas water heaters should be replaced with electric water heaters. Sterno cans should be locked up and only purchased by those with fire permits. Let's all make this country a safe, hermetically-sealed utopia devoid of evil. Let's pass sensible, reasonable fire control legislation! Who's with me? Anyone? Anyone at all?

Indeed! They are all killers that need to be regulated. I'm sure Zero and his horde will soon craft and EO to control them as well. :-P
PLEASE Patrick, don't give them any more ideas or we will have an new Executive Order tomorrow, with an appropriate number of children and phony actors in Doctors jackets.
Biden will introduce BO who will then condemn Prometheus for bringing fire to Earth!
Yes or no. If the Newtown killer had only a rifle or pistol, and not an assault weapon, would he have been able to murder all 26 of the victims, or would a few of them been able to escape? If even 1 of the 26 had escaped, isn't that reason enough to ban assault weapons? Isn't every life precious?
He did use handguns - not the AR 15. The fellow in China used a knife on 20 some kids. Now what do we ban? Rocks? Baseball bats?
First of all he did not have an "assault weapon", the longarm that was removed from the trunk of his car (captured on video) was a shotgun. The rifle he had was purported to be a Bushmaster XM-15 rifle, in addition to two handguns. Where you aware that before this deeply disturbed and likely over medicated young man killed his Mother and stole her firearms, he tried to purchase firearms five different times, was turned down by insta-check each time? Yet the BATFE failed to act and could have prevented this tragedy. A simple phone call to local authorities would have been all it took.
What is really sickening is people like you dancing in the blood of children to further your political agenda. Where were you when firearms "walked" by the BATFE were found at the murder scenes of a US Border Patrol agent, a DEA agent, a Mexican Beauty Queen as well at a Birthday Party turned massacre? I'd wager you weren't out calling to disband the BATFE or, for holding those in authority over it responsible.
People like yourself are what is truly wrong with this country, hypocritical, false-faced political opportunists. May God have mercy on your soul when the time comes, as I do not possess such grace or restraint.
BTW, you're done here troll.
Please Ken, don't just ban him. Give me his address, so I can install the "Gun Free Zone" sign in his front yard. He would like one, I'm sure. Oh, I also have some instructional material that I would like to give him. Ya know, the reaching across the aisle sort of thing!!
First ,No every life isn't precious.Especially not to the President.He's had no remorse for Fast and Furious nor for the circle jerk he was doing while our Libyan Ambassador was being raped and beaten to death. Now I ask your bleeding heart: Hundreds died of Fast & Furious, did you feel those lives are less precious than the children's? How precious were the lives of the students at Kent State in "68, who were murdered by their own National Guard for dessenting. Our leaders are always ambitious Fools!
There is no such thing as an assult weapon until it is used in an assult. And that weapon could be anything from words to nuclear weapons. To answer your question, no one can know what might have happened. It is just as likely more could have been killed as less could have been killed. How many would have been killed if the Police had arrives sooner, how many more if later...its a circle jerk. But if either of the first two school officials that confronted this killer had been trained in confronting such an invasion and immediately gotten a gun or guns, it is likely there would have been only one dead, the perpetrator.
I believe EVERY life is precious. Obama does not. He is the most pro-abortion president EVER! IF one of those administrators at Newtown had been armed and prepared, we wouldn't be looking at the graves of 20 children! Criminally insane people do not give a rip about the law and they will go right around it to get their hands on a weapon when they intend to do harm. If that loon had used a knife, would you still be falling for this liberal drivel? Would you say all butter knives should be destroyed? You KNOW that is ridiculous, yet the argument to ban guns is just as ridiculous! Gun control only helps criminals and ties the hands of law abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves when seconds count!
If only one armed guard was in that school the gunman may have been the only one hurt and over 25 lives could have been saved. Yes, every life is precious.
