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.
** HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF....especially when it comes to dictators **
It should be impossible with the Republicans holding the House but with Republicans you are never safe.
I guess he could also just issue an executive order.
For some of us, the White Feather is Carlos Hathcock.
His silence has persisted, not the legislation. Typical, bad J-school English.
Can’t wait to be at the next gun show. Gonna be PACKED as always — probably even moreso.
It’s over to the extent the Obastard and his idiot minions have destroyed the United States as a constitutional republic (and I can’t see how you can dispute that, as he is governing primarily via EOs, bypassing Congress, and thumbing his nose at the Supreme Court, and getting away with it).
But, I’m with you: I’ll fight.
Let them think they have a mandate. They always overreach and screw it up. 2014 cannot come soon enough.
Not gonna be quietly...
I lost all of mine in a card game years ago. I found four aces does not beat five kings.
Oh no we don’t. I am not going quietly.
And I don’t “DO” burkhas.
Are Boner and the Republicans in congress going to go along with this? Like now we need amnesty, even Hannity agrees. WTF?
Not so quietly.
Now that he no longer has to worry about re-election he is free to fully pursue his totalitarian socialist agenda.
He’s not “breaking his silence on the legislation.” He’s mentioned it several times before to please the “upscale” part of his constituency and the same part of the constituency of the other party. And there’s been no such “legislation.” Quite a few bills attempting to be such legislation have failed.
The vast majority of voters in both parties push against any such ban. Firearms are in style, and a greater part of Americans are educated about the Second Amendment than for decades past.
All of that said, drive on. Run those stock and retail prices up. The trend and speech are fun to watch.
***Before they can be banned, shouldnt an asault weapon be defined.***
Years ago before the just before the California ban, Neal Knox exposed the fact that the Cali assault rifle law also included a ban on lever action rifles.
Eventually they will go after all of them.
Keep your powder dry.
I just noticed it and am hearing DiFi has plans to introduce a new AWB
Man, that's a damn shame. I had the same thing happen except I was in a rowboat in PA
Anyone really surprised??
How long until the GOP surrenders?
I wonder what their view is of punt guns:
I don’t look for congress to allow major gun legislation. I do expect Obama to use his regulatory agencies to go after gun owners in every way possible.
Simple, every gun is an assault on the common decency of the left. Therefore, all guns are assault weapons.
Q. If you commit an assault with a baseball bat, is the bat now an assault weapon?
Oh, we’re already screwed on gun control even with the Rebpublicans holding the House. The UN Small Arms Treaty basically does this and it only requires the Senate to approve it. He has the votes to do it. The House has no say.
Time to pull the eject handle.
F U B O
COME AND TAKE IT!!!
I encourage everyone to read the Enemies, Foreign and Domestic trilogy by FreeRepublic’s very own Travis McGee aka Matthew Bracken. I have read it twice and am starting my third reading of it.
I did and dragged my entire family and everyone I knew to the polls - but I live in NYS so its merely a protest vote.
When was the last time they passed an anti-gun law and didn’t exempt their government goons?
In the past, they needed both houses and enough politicians who thought gun control was a good idea. The difference is that this time by they have the UN Small Arms Treaty - they only need 34 votes in the Senate and the President.
The local gun store was packed yesterday. Prices haven’t gone up yet.
Yup - Obama and his gang of thugs and communists are racing the Small Arms Treaty through at the U.N.
That ghetto creep and his cabal of communists and traitors at 1600 PA Ave. still have a lot of promises to fulfill to donors that they did not do ni the first term.
The House has no say, true. BUT it takes 2/3 of the Senate to ratify a treaty.
So long as 34 (of 45) Republican Senators stand pat, the Small Arms Treaty is doomed. And I'm less than sure that all 55 Democrats will support it, either.
