It’s coming. Maybe I should sign that Texas and Louisiana petition calling the whitehouse.gov for secession.

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.

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.

Its funny how ABC thinks there's nothing at all wrong with a president withholding his true second term platform from the public until AFTER winning re-election.

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.

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 don’t 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.

breathtaking bias....

...in spite of at least five mass shootings during his term.

anything that isn't a muzzle-loader, is an assault weapon.

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.

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.

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, shouldn’t 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.

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.

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.

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.
