HOPE AND CHANGE SUCKERS!
Quietly into the night we go....
It’s coming. Maybe I should sign that Texas and Louisiana petition calling the whitehouse.gov for secession.
Quietly into the night we go....
Obama can say what he wants, do what he wants, he’s king, until he soon realizes there’s a wall he cannot move. Or maybe the pessimists are right, it’s over, raise the surrender flag and send yourself the white feather of cowardice. Me? No way, I’ll fight to the end.
Yeah right Obama. Molon Labe.
As was predicted by the Americans
And was denied by the Democrats.
OK. Send the Kenyan Kommunist Klown an Assault Weapons Ban. Ban all select-fire carbines capable of full auto or burst fire. Extend that to ALL civilians and civilian forces, such as the police and federal law enforcement.
Keep talking Barky... You really know how to unify the country don’t you?
Boy - am I glad I don’t own any guns - nope not-a-one - they all went down to the bottom of a lake in New Hampshire when my canoe sank....
Outrage of the day. One a day every day.
The R2KBA shall not be infringed.
And no one in the MSM dare suggest to him that its somewhat dishonest to roll out a second term platform today thats completely different than the one he said he was gonna roll out last MONDAY.
This aticle is from October 16.
When this goes through only “gangstas” will have access to assault weapons and that is exactly what he wants. ;-)
And to think, in 1962 Thomas J Dodd and Emaual Cellar proposed the first federal law on common firearms.
1962; We dont want to take away your firearms, we ONLY want to register handguns! Rifles and shotguns will not be affeCted.
1964: We only want to register all your guns, not ban them! Only Army surplus guns will be banned.
1968: We only want to register your guns, and ban Saturday Night Specials and small foreign handguns along with army surplus rifles! (They got the ban on 5 shot army surplus rifles and handguns and small foreign pistols)
1970: We only want to ban Saturday night specials! large handguns and rifles will not be affected! There was also a call at this time to ban all private possession of ALL GUNS.
1976: We only want to ban all handguns! Long guns will not be affected!
1981: The NRA should give up their handguns, and they can keep their rifles!- Lee Grant on GMA
1984: We must ban assault Rifles, unsuitable for hunting!
1989: George Bush bans import of foreign made assault rifles:.
1992: Assault rifle ban passed by Clinton.
2000: first calls to ban single shot .50 cal rifles...
and so it continues.
They lied to us in 1962.
They lied to us in 1964.
TheY lied to us in 1968.
They lied to us in 1970.
They lied to us in 1976.
They lied to us in 1981.
AND THEY ARE LYING TO US NOW!
That was only funny the first time I heard it. This being about the millionth it has gotten old to think some of my fellow countrymen are cowards that think childish excuses such as that would prevail in a gun grab instead of standing tall and being counted. Damned straight I’ve got guns and they are right here.
Asault weapon bans are vague. Before they can be banned, shouldn’t an asault weapon be defined. It used to be an assault weapon was defined as a machine gun....and those were baned. But, in the Clinton era an assault weapon was defined as any rifle with a handle on it...which are not banned as of today as long as they aren’t automatic (machine guns). I have no idea what as assault rifle ban is according to Obama. It’s an important detail.
