Breaking: President Announces Gun Control Policies

Email Share Breaking: President Announces Gun Control Policies Kyle Becker December 19, 2012 12:02 pm

President Obama announced gun control policies this morning at 11:45 a.m. Eastern. As reported on a local NBC News affiliate Channel 11 in Georgia, the administration will launch a major effort to develop and implement gun control policies the administration claims will help prevent another mass school shooting.

The president is tasking gun control expert, serial gaffe-master Vice President Joe Biden to head up what one presumes will be called a blue ribbon commission unilateral effort on why law-abiding citizens can no longer be trusted to possess certain kinds of guns, while only police, government law enforcement, and the U.S. military can.

The NBC report rightly captures the sense of urgency among some politicians to force through sweeping federal gun control legislation without reasoned deliberation, a proper discussion of the government’s powers, or a debate over the nature of people’s rights. Others might describe this urgency as politicians taking advantage of a legitimate crisis to exploit those who are emotionally willing to let their guard down.

We've had a two day "debate" consisting from their side

"shut up"

"You're stupid" "Someone should kill you"

and now they declare victory. Consensus has been achieved. Time to move on

It's worse than that. He always gets a subtle insult in by saying, "I think rational people everywhere will agree..." The point is that if you disagree, you are irrational.

And anyone who thinks that is unintentional is irrational.

A good place to start banning guns is with the secret service. They’re carrying guns in the strictest gun free zones in the world.

"Never waste a good crises."

Geeze. The gun-grapping commies aren't even waiting for the bodies to get cold. They're jumping on those kids while they're still a hot item.

Pathetic. The democrats are sick, sick, sick people. The more people they can set up as sitting ducks for crazies, the better it is for them politically. The more killing there is, the more power they can grab. How sick is that?

There will be 1000 times more violence resulting from the attempt to confiscate guns, then there would be if the guns were left alone. So gun violence is not the issue.

law-abiding citizens can no longer be trusted

The disarming commies in government can't be trusted. That's WHY we have the 2nd amendment and the right to self defense.

BTW, Oboma is using the dead bodies at Sandy Hook to push for higher taxes, too. "Something must be done!"

Addendum to post 29:

If the past is any indication of the future, If the Congressional Republicans are the only thing that stand between us and obama the dictator, we are royally screwed. I wuuld say start preparing both mentally and physically for what is to come. As far as we are concerned, it is not going to be nice and pleasant.

BE CAREFUL! Back in 1968, the murder of Bobby Kennedy was an anti-gunner’s wet dream come true.

Bobby Kennedy was killed with a small American made .22 revolver, an Iver Johnson Cadet.

John Kennedy was killed in 1963 with a 5 shot bolt action military surplus rifle. Italian Carcano.

When the 1968 gun control act passed,(due to the passing out of huge amounts of cash to the states for “crime control”), it banned what the antis have been dreaming of for years.

A ban on 5 shot bolt action army surplus rifles.
A ban on small foreign pistols and revolvers.
A ban on military equipment. A gun shop in Tulsa was raided because they imported flintlock flints.

All of this did not ban the pistol used to kill Bobby, and it did nothing to ban foreign police surplus rifles which were the same as military rifles, just not issued to the army.

Congressmen from CT, Mass and NY had wanted a ban on military surplus to protect their local industries like COLT, S&W, Savage and Winchester.

Why should an American buy a $12.00 army rifle to hunt with when they should be buying a high dollar American made hunting rifle!

And why should they be buying a military Army surplus Enfield or Webley pistol when they should be buying a high dollar US made handgun?

The devil is in the details so be real careful with this as the antis today are far worse than the antis of the 1960s.

this article is from an ‘email share’? Are there any actual news links to confirm this? There’s been plenty of hoax emails through hte years- not sayin this is a hoax, but I’m always skeptical of emails that get forwarded around- I’ve been stung by supposedly ‘true’ info before that turned out to be false-

“Geeze. The gun-grapping commies aren’t even waiting for the bodies to get cold. They’re jumping on those kids while they’re still a hot item.”

We saw the freaks intercept the bodies from Benghazi to optimally use them as campaign props....

They are positively reinforced to stop at nothing to achieve their political aims, because it’s always ok when a Democrat does it.

Did I mention that the 1968 Gun Control Law was based on the 1938 Nazi Weapons Act of Nazi Germany.

Thomas J Dodd had a copy of it to copy from.

I wish that someone with a spine (in Washington) would make a big deal out of the fact that these shootings, Newtown & Clackamas, happened in liberal enclaves. (plenty of democrats own guns) Jared Loughner had been a supporter of Gabrielle Giffords. Why are lefties disproportionately likely to freak out & go on a shooting spree? ;-) They’re “smart”, too. They always choose a place that they know guns are prohibited.

wtc911 said
“I puked in my mouth when he played the ‘murdered babies’ card as a reason for the GOP to cave on the ‘fiscal cliff’.”

And we should be hitting them hard on abortion right now (since they brought it up) Let’s see how sincere they are about “murdered babies”.
