Skip to comments.Obama promises 'meaningful action' after Newtown school shooting (Obama's Reichstag Fire?)
Posted on 12/14/2012 3:47:30 PM PST by Arthurio
Barack Obama wiped away tears at the White House as he expressed grief over the children killed in the Connecticut massacre and promised "meaningful action" to prevent similar shooting rampages in the future.
Obama has promised to act on gun control after earlier shooting incidents but subsequently done nothing implement any changes. Over the last four years of his presidency, restrictions on guns in particular concealed weapons have become more relaxed and gun sales soared.
There have been five major shooting sprees since he has been president, three of them this year. This one is different because the majority of the victims in the school in Newtown are young children, but the most recent opinion polls have shown overwhelming opposition to gun restrictions.

Barack Obama wiped away “fake” tears as he contemplated making a move on assault weapons.
This one is different because it occurred AFTER the election. He’s going to act now and you are going to obey.
Krauthammer just stated that the Brady group says Connecticut has the fourth most stringent weapons laws in the nation.
Gun laws sure work don’t they.
Fake tears and fake president.
How very Clintoonian of him..........
Don’t these far left lunatics understand that even if you take away every single gun in America it wont stop demented evil from killing. What do the left want, to take away guns from the police..then what, we have total anarchy. Chicago is a gun control city and every single day we hear about shooting after shooting. Yeah I dare these leftist loons to try to take away guns from Gang bangers. I can just imagine “Hey Mr Gang banger, can I have your gun pretty please” LOL Id love to see their reaction
I'm not sure I'd take bets on that.
Folks are always willing to give superhuman capabilities to government, but aren't willing to do the math the logistics requires.
Well maybe some original thinking like mental health reforms would be in order.
Let the Kenyan importer bring it. Rats lose big time in 2014.
How about dusting off old Sparky?
Fake tears and fake president

All those ‘sessions’ with Clintoon paid off...he has learned to ‘cry on cue’....recall the Ron Brown funeral when WJC was laughing and joking around till he spotted a camera and he started wiping away tears....
PHONIES....a POX ON ALL THEIR HOUSES.
Ban schools...seems like they are the main cause of shootings ./s
Barry has killed more kids with his pro-abortion votes than all school shooters combined.
is he going to mention the failed social policies of the left then?
How parents don’;t spend time with their kids, don;t raise their kids and prep them for the real world?
Kids are being screwed up and doing these acts because they are not rasied right.
I see this every day and how parents are too tired, get nannies, day care, can;t be bothered go out to eat and not teach kids to cook, clean up, respect etc
I can think of all kinds of “meaningful action” that would make the left very happy, but I’m hard pressed to think of any law that could prevent lunatics or mentally unstable from these kinds of acts.
I CAN think of lots of actions that would cut violent crime rates by garden variety criminals, but these actions would lean more toward criminal control, not gun control.
Having said all this, I’m gonna guess we will see a huge campaign for more gun control, some of which may come about.
Don’t taze me bro, but this was on Drudge. Many people agree with him on this.
You guessed it. Recall The incident in England several years ago? And besides, while this is bad, each day untold numbers of unborn and partially beor babies are being murdered on an assemblyline basis. And not a peep from the media.
Looked like it to me. He won the Peace Prize. What's next? The Oscar?
AWB and National Registration are coming I think. Hope I am wrong, but our President is power hungry.
Impostor. how to turn off correct?
All those registered guns were tragically lost in a boating accident when my canoe capsized.
Norway, a country with restrictive gun laws still had a guy obtain an assault type weapon and kill 87 kids.
As usual you posted an article without comment. What do you think?
Well there goes the Illinois conceal/carry law being passed.
parents be parents, promote marriage, real marriage not the failed social marriage of homosexuals.
That is the problem, guns have beeb around hundreds of years, mass shottings did nto happen in the 50’s but they do today after the left destroyed the family and we got lazy parents.
I have kdis BTW and we sit down eevry night and talk about the days events we raise them with manners and hard work, my boys can fight but respect women, my daughter is a lady and all conservatives
Sixty million gun owners with over a hundred million guns plus a billion or more of ammunition.
Think of this. Malloy repealed the death penalty in CT. If this creep didn’t end up dead during the incident, he would most likely spend life in prison.
Trying to prevent mass murders by banning guns is like trying to end drunk driving by taking cars away from sober people.
99.9% of gun owners wouldn’t even contemplate an act like this...but we’re about to be COMMANDED to pay with our rights and our property for the acts of an evil lunatic. Let’s see how many people agree to be commanded.
Four more years of the POS.
Guns don’t kill people liberals do...
Up next. War on knives?
“Knife-wielding man injures 22 children in China”
The power of state psychologists to seize and control children and adults is unbelievable, and understandably kept fairly hushed. But what we don't lose by keeping our guns we may lose by failing to guard against the threat of being declared "incompetent" by a politicized psychology. That is all a tyrant would need to take our arms without the appearance of violating the 2nd Amendment.
And how are they going to take every single gun. Only possibility is that they’ll eventually break down doors ad search every single home in America.
It’s shameful how these evil people try to push their policies using a tragedy like this one. Why don’t they recommend using some of the federal funds they’d use for gun control to make these schools safer? No wait, it’s not really the people’s safety at issue here now is it?
This call was a first responders nightmare.
This is something that those men and women will have to live with all their lives.
I hope it is understood here that first responders see some terrible things and have to live with them.It does not mean that I do not have sympathy for the families or the children. The police and ambulances crews and Firefighters who witnessed the aftermath of this won’t sleep well tonight either.
Any time the libs start a gun control drive an exploitable tragedy appears, right on time.
ABsolutely fake. This man has never shed a tear over anything since he became president. He is doing it all for show. Takes acting lessons from BJ Clinton, his best buddy.
If BO attempts anything unconstitutional I promise to meaningfully ignore it.
Can’t have a reasonable discussion about guns without
also talking about the bilge being pumped out by
Hollywood and the media as far as violence and
1. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
2. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
3. Colt: The original point and click interface.
4. Gun control is not about guns; it’s about control.
5. If guns are outlawed, can we use swords?
6. If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.
7. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
8. If you don’t know your rights, you don’t have any.
9. Those who trade liberty for security have neither.
10. The United States Constitution (c)1791. All Rights Reserved.
11. What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?
12. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.
13. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
14. Guns only have two enemies; rust and politicians.
15. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.
16. You don’t shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
So does that mean that he is going to issue some kind of executive order? Because Congress is not going to pass some confiscatory law.
Will Obama tell the secret service to get rid of their guns?
“Never let a good crisis go to waste” the Godfather
Kids of parents who are legal gun owners will not be allowed in school.
Obama is right we can’t let liberal schoolteachers foster the creation of mass murderers anymore. Dissolve the DEA and commie Unions. Now.
Every citizen with a brain can see that every time this evil happens we see lots of pictures of cops and swat walking around with their AR’s but they never use them. And there is a reason for that. LEO’s are investigators, they don’t get to the crime scenes until the crime is over.
Teach your children to act when evil comes to visit. Teach them to get out the back door or a window and to seek help at a neighbors home or a store. Anything but huddling in a corner waiting for evil to end their precious lives.
God rest these victims souls and may this evil bastard burn in hell for eternity.
I wonder how many children were killed while still inside their mothers womb today?
