The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
It’s probably true, but it is still hearsay.
It’s vital that we own guns, especially if Obama suspends the election and declares himself El Presidente for life.
It’s probably just a coincidence but Idi Amin Dada had that same attitude.
It is only natural for a Hitler/Stalin/Mussoline-like despot to abhor the idea of his subjects actally owning [gasp] weapons that could potentially dethrone him.
This man is a Muslim, an America-hater, a Freedom-hater, and a fascist whose only desire is to put America in its rightful third-world place. The fact that he has so many lazy, slothful and deviant ideologues behind him attests to the horrible path this country has taken - all in the name of ‘diversity’, ‘inclusion’ and ‘fair’.
Gee, I don’t think presidents should be able to violate the Constitution.
So much for the Second Amendment. I’ll bet he has a similar thought on the First also.
Oh what am I saying? This guy is a walking violation of the Constitution.
There have been other world leaders in the past that have toted the very same attitude and accomplished this directive under their reign.
BTW where was John Lott and the anti-Obama crowd 4 years ago? That quote was as relevant then as today.
Hey Hussein: I Don't Believe Foreign Usurpers Should Try To Deny Me MY Constitutional Rights!
> Its probably just a coincidence but Idi Amin Dada had that same attitude.
Idi Amin Dada:
“His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea, and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.”
...and his trusty spouse, “Suicide Sarah” the stock car driver. LOL!
I think his “bitter gun clinger” quote said all I needed to hear about his views. I had no doubt in 2008 what his view on guns was.
He was a board member of the Joyce Foundation. They gave millions to gun grabbing organizations.
That was about the extent of the conversation.
Obama walked up to Lott, did a minimal intro, dropped the I dont believe people should be able to own guns, then spun around, showed Lott his ass and walked off- a typical Obama “dialog”. This one was even shorter than his meet-up with Jan Brewer at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
I first heard the anecdote before the 2008 election on a local college professor’s radio show that originated in Chicago; Lott was on, they invited people from the Obama campaign to attend, the HQ was about five minutes away. Instead of sending over a representative, the Obama organization phone-bombed the radio show with the callers all using the same scripted remarks. The host said he had never experienced such a thing in the decades he’d been hosting the program.
related, stealth red tactics- worth a look:
Other than that, he promises to support the rest of it unless something else comes up.
This guy isn’t fit to be president on any level.
FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban
“Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, No, my writing wasnt on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns.
Actually, Obamas writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:
35. Do you support state legislation to:
a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.
b. ban assault weapons? Yes.
c. mandatory waiting periods and background checks? Yes.
Obamas campaign said, Sen. Obama didnt fill out these state Senate questionnairesa staffer didand there are several answers that didnt reflect his views then or now. He may have jotted some notes on the front page of the questionnaire, but some answers didnt reflect his views.

I remember viewing the Alinsky interview before. Definitely worth viewing. The Kurtz video is also very important and I am looking forward to his book.
“Audio at link”
Now that there is audio of Obama stating that Americans should not be able to own guns, the tape will hopefully find its way into a Romney commercial.
Still, that message (and others) need to be hammered over and over until the “33%” that blow with the wind get the picture
When did BHO say this?
Only references I can find and there are many, he said “some people should not be allowed to own guns”.
This was said in a conversation to John Lott. Lott is telling us.
They were paraphrasing...the last 8 words of his comment.
CCW class will be completed by next week. Have to get it in prior to the next election.
Obama hasn't changed, and the opposition against him hasn't changed. The only thing different in 2008 was that the total news blackout was more effective, because he had no record.

This is a well known exception: admission against interest by a party opponent.
It's clearly against Obama's interest to admit that he doesn't believe people should own guns. And if ever there was an opponent - of freedom, of citizens, of the United States - then he is it.
Just hearsay, unfortunately. Probably true, but without proof there’s no way to make it stick.
I'm pretty sure Lott recounted this to Michelle Malkin during the 2008 campaign - there were threads on it right here.
Asked - and answered - in the audio clip...
There was definitely more discussion of this topic - and not just here on FR. Can't blame Lott for not warning us, regardless of the fact that he didn't have proof of Obama's comment.
Why didn’t John Lott sy this in 2007 or 2008? Why now, after he is already Prez?
Citizens own guns. Slaves, serfs, and subjects don’t.
The 08 election proved what happens when idiots vote.
I never prayed harder than before that election. A lot of good that did.
Justice Antonin Scalia, one of the Supreme Court’s most vocal and conservative justices, said on Sunday that the Second Amendment leaves room for U.S. legislatures to regulate guns, including menacing hand-held weapons.
Why is anybody suprised that a Muzzie lovin Commie dictator wannabe is interested in disarming the general populace?
God blessed me with the right to own guns, Mr. Obama.
So **** you very much.
Oh my - I remember hearing about that radio show and the Obama thugs who called in...
I recall reading about it years ago, and I think I even posted it as a blog by John Lott.
It was a story simply spiked by the MSM and ignored by most Americans at the time. People can only act on the information that they have, and a great number of people rely on the MSM for their information.
All insane D.I.C.K.-T.A.T.E.R.S think the same way.
