Obama: AK-47s Belong In The Hands Of Soldiers, Not Civilians (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | July 25, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms," President Obama said at the National Urban League convention in New Orleans. "I think we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation. That hunting and shooting are a cherished national heritage."

"But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. That they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities," Obama said Wednesday night.

I can see him saying that. It was his side that used the AK-47.

You know, the communists.

It’s none of his damned business what kind of firearms I feel appropriate for the defense of my self and my loved ones.

We are all soldiers defending Liberty. I do not own a gun but I damn sure know how to use one...and I am a hell of a shot.

In case you miss the point of his comments, he specifically cited the AK-47, rather than the AR-15, as a set up for supporting the UN treaty, due up this Friday.

I hate him at this moment.

I hate him more than I have ever hated an individual in my life. I think that this is the first time that I’ve ever felt hate.

My husband was two blocks from the Fort Hood massacre. 13 innocents lost their lives BECAUSE THE DOD WON’T LET TRAINED SOLDIERS CARRY GUNS ON POST.

Good, strong, trained, heroic men and women were mowed down because the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULDN’T LET THEM PROTECT THEMSELVES.

I hate him so much.

He can take his ‘shout out’ and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.

Lol, this is rich! Back in the day the only restriction on what you could own was determined by the depth of your pocketbook. Im SURE the Founders would have loved our times with all the really great advances in weaponry. Frankly those Founders the liberals like to speak for would be classified as terrorists by Big Sis and co.

AK - 47? Isn't that the preferred weapon of the 3rd World? Obama's inner Indonesian is showing. American's prefer Winchesters, Colts' and Smith & Wesson And another thing, the right to bear arms means open carry wherever and whenever I want to. A possible exception might be private property.

Name one army, irregular militia or even insurgency group that arms itself with the type of AK-47 commonly, legally available in the US.

We don't care what you think. The founders believed the people should have military weapons in case they had to oust a tyrannical government.

A corrupt government fears an armed populace.

Hubert H. Humphrey On The 2nd Amendment
“Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.,” said Humphrey to Guns Magazine (“Know Your Lawmakers,” Guns Magazine, Feb. 1960).

I think perhaps that I should mention that Humphrey was a pretty liberal Democrat - for his time.

“That hunting and shooting are a cherished national heritage.....
“AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers,....”

Oh yeah, the old argument that it’s all about hunting. Give me a break! Guess the RevWar was just a deer shoot. Whoever shot the most deer won?

The ironic thing is all these dopes (as quoted) think “assault weapons” SHOULD NOT be in the hands of anyone BUT soldiers, while that is exactly why we mere citizens need them - to fight those soldiers when they are turned on us.

But no, that never happens, does it?

I wish we were more like Switzerland where every male is armed and required to attend training every year, AND the government appears to be aware of the fact. Here, if we were really “soldiers defending liberty”, as someone asserts above, the government thugs would never have dared to pass Obamacare which was opposed by 67% of the population at the time. Remember what happened to the last soldier defending liberty at Ruby Ridge (under a Bush, by the way.)

I saw what you did there, Barry, you worthless piece of filth.

Nobody's arguing about the appropriateness of guns in the hands of criminals. What about peaceable citizens, Barry Hussein? Do you believe that "AK-47s" (could you identify one, if you saw it?) belong in the hands of peaceable citizens? US Constitution says "yes". How 'bout you, Barry?

Seems that you need to be a soldier with an AK47 if you want to take an evening stroll in Chicago on a summers weekend evening! Or Detroit, or Washington, DC, or LA, or any other progressive urban hell hole!

Don't blame the communist speaking from New Orleans.

Blame the guy next to you that voted for him.

Universal Suffrage was explicitly warned against by the FOUNDERS, who deliberately did not put a right to vote into the Constitution.

The WASHINGTONIANS in DC have amended the Constitution to expand he Franchise, and as a result degenerates like Clinton, Obama, and soon MYTH ROMNEY are elected POTUS.

This Republic will fall.

The enemy is all around us.

But wait! Our government has no problem arming Libyan and Syrian civilians. Shouldn’t our government help ensure that every American has access to the same weaponry available to Syrians and Libyans? At no charge?

Just in case some eeeeeevil republican conservative assumes the presidency under false pretenses and for all intents and purposes disbands Congress. You know, just in case . .

Oh, I get it. He meant other nation’s soldiers.

Whew, looks like I sold my AK-47 just in time.

Thank goodness Obama doesn't want to take away the AR-15 that replaced it.

I would have kept both, but the Obama Economy has put the dent in my expanding Arsenal Plan.

Then there was that tragic boating accident that decimated my collection. I'm tearing up just thinking about it.
