Obama: Michelle told me, If I was living out in a farm in Iowa, Id probably want a gun
The Oklahoman ^ | April 4, 2013 | Michal Conger

Posted on 04/05/2013 10:23:29 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

During a gun control speech in Colorado on Wednesday, President Obama said first lady Michelle Obama told him while they were campaigning in Iowa that she’d want a gun for self-protection if she lived in a rural area:

“The first conversation was when Michelle came back from doing some campaigning out in rural Iowa. And we were sitting at dinner, and she had been to a big county, a lot of driving out there, a lot of farmland.

“And she said, if I was living out in a farm in Iowa, I’d probably want a gun, too"....

If I was living on a farm in Iowa and Moochelle moved in next to me I’d move to Nebraska.

You have the right to keep and bear arms if and only if Michelle Obama lives on a farm in Iowa. Now get with the damn program.

Makes obvious sense because rural areas are much more dangerous than urban areas with Chicago probably being the safest place of all.

Michele’s way out of line........the vast number of crimes are done in her home city, Chicago and Washington....not rural America.

Any sane person living in DC would want one if not surrounded by armed agents 24/7.

Somehow... I just find it difficult to think that Mr. Obama’s statement is.. uh... truthful.

Let me rephrase that:

That freakin’ liar. No way in hell did Mooochelle offer up such a statement. And NO barry, if you’re trying to show a moderation on gun control, I ain’t buyin it. Leave our 2A rights alone.

The Democrats are playing a little turn about here, it’s part of their social justice agenda.

What is going on is that the Democrats are trying to blame the White Oppressors for the gun violence that occurs in the Black inner city communities. It is the White man’s fault that the Black culture is so violent because it is oppression of the Blacks that has caused the hopelessness that has led to the violence. So, if they take away the guns from the White man, they are figuratively castrating the White men and empowering the Blacks and this is supposed to make the Blacks less violent.

Everything is interpreted in terms of White Man’s oppression of the brown races.

The regime in power decides if you may have a gun for self-protection or whatever, or not....you ask permission ....and they decide for you ...

KENYA Gun Law:

It is illegal in Kenya to own any type of firearm without a valid gun ownership license as spelled out under the Firearms Act (Cap. 114) Laws of Kenya. Anyone who is 12 years or older can apply to privately own a gun. However, such persons must provide in writing to the Chief Licensing Officer (CLO) stating genuine reason(s) for their need to privately own and carry a firearm. It remains at the discretion of the CLO to make a decision to award, deny or revoke a gun ownership license based on the reason(s) given. Anyone seeking to hold a gun license must pass the most stringent of background checks that probes into their past and present criminal, mental health and well as domestic violence records. Failure to pass one of these checks automatically bars one from being permitted to own a firearm. These checks are regularly repeated and must be continually passed for anyone to continue holding the gun license. Failure to pass any of these checks at any stage, means an automatic and immediate revocation of the issued license. Once licensed to own a gun, no permit is required in order to carry around a concealed firearm.”

If she were living in Chicago, she’d be far more likely to need a gun.

I lived on an Iowa acreage from 1974 to 1990 and in Des Moines from 1990 to 2001. Very little real crime, especially in the country.

I would think there is less need for a gun on a farm in Iowa than living in an urban area like Detroit or even DC.

“And she said, if I was living out in a farm in Iowa, I’d probably want a gun, too".... <\i>

What a racist pig.... I am sure that she meant that because of all the white folk "read rednecks" that live out there, cause you are going to need one. At least that's how I took it.

Sorry, bo, but the farm you’re headed for will not allow you to have a gun.

It’s called a PRISON FARM!!

Unfortunately the “ghetto culture” at best is one of containment. Experienced this in a city I lived. Certain streets you simply didn't go beyond. Everyone in the city knew those boundaries, and new residents were quickly informed.

I once though if you cleaned out these areas and gave them a better life, surroundings etc. was one of the answers. I saw differently....

Same city, my son and family lived in a rural development....neighbors knew one another etc. One family sold there house for section 8...in no time old cars dotted the yard, trash all over, boom boxes blaring 24/7....then house two was sold to section 8....Grand exodus thereafter. he area fast went down hill.

The homes were split level modern homes....trashed within a few months.....

You need one in the city more than you need one in the country. The 2nd Amendments says, it don’t matter if you think you need it or not.

There have been two articles in the WSJ in the past few weeks, about the gentrification of the area near the art museum and the West River Drive. I always forget what they call it, but I am familiar with the area.

The articles were about a new wave of gentrification, slackers instead of baby boomers moving in. The first wave of gentrification took place before the Black Panther movement with the very earliest baby boomer graduate students, who all considered themselves to be the most open minded and brightest people in the world. I guess that the as those baby boomers got older, the ones that stayed became less tolerant and more cloistered in their gentrified neighborhood with defined boundaries. Those boundaries defined the culture of the neighborhood, not the color of the skin.

Anyway, not everyone was quite so open minded when that neighborhood was first gentrified. I remember sitting outside the art museum, waiting for my friend’s father to pick us up and spotting a sign on a new high rise apartment building for an adult only apartment building. The sign said, For the buyer with discriminating tastes. I never forgot it. I couldn’t believe that they got away with that kind of double entendre. A few years later, there was a train trestle in North Philadelphia that someone had painted with graffiti that said Marcia Black, is a N——. She was the first Black news reporter on tv in Philadelphia and the Blacks hated her because she was too White. That might not have been her last name, but her first name was Marcia.
