Posted on 12/19/2012 12:43:25 PM PST by Mozilla
At a press conference this afternoon, President Obama called for an assault weapons ban (AWB), limits on ammunition magazine capacity and background checks for all private firearms sales. He urged Congress to hold votes on these measures next year. I believe that the Second Amendment guarantees a right to an individual right to bear arms, the President assured Americans. But, he insisted, the majority of law-abiding gun owners agree that its a good idea to remove the publics access to weapons of war. The President assured Americans that the new, VP-led task forces concrete proposals wont be long in coming or languish. Once again, the President vowed to use all the powers of his office to implement the findings, which will [no doubt] include an AWB, mag cap bans and federal intrusion into firearms sales between individuals.
See what happens.
Can you call for the outlaw of death too?
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
weapons of war
Yes, here is comes. The revised terminology.
What about “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” does this affirmative action poster boy not understand?
I guess when you get a pass because of your color you are not too bright.
The only legal way to get his communist vermin way on the 2nd Amendment is via a new Amendment. However, when your an affirmative action student you probably did not understand that part of the Constitution.
Maybe we should eliminate all violence on TV & video games just like they make sure we never see a boob on the boob tube.
While I am 100% certain the founders wanted us to be armed for protection from scum and from the government (that might be redundant), I don’t for one nano second think the founders wanted porn or killing to be protected by the 1st Amendment.
Just like the first Amendment the 2nd Amendment is designed to protect us from government and the only boobs they had in mind were politicians.
I like “Tools of Freedom” better.
Here is the deal prezzy, after you recover every weapon and account for every death that resulted from your gun running to Mexican Drug Cartels, I will then actually listen and actually devote some thought to what you have to say about something. And after Hillary Clinton gets admonished and punished for her role in the systematic failures at the Department of State that resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans, I will actually listen and actually devote some thought to what anyone else in DC has to say about something. Until then, you are all just blowing into the wind, trying to rule a country of law abiding citizens, that no longer exists.
The best reason for citizens to NEED assault weapons with high capacity mags is the criminal JBTs this administration will send to confiscate our weapons will be armed with assault weapons with high capacity mags.
Seems like equality to me! All in fairness. Level the playing field. Social Justice. blah, blah.
no definition of what an assault weapon is...
If it were not for “weapons of war”, we might still be a British colony.
Hey, “Preezy of the United Steezy”, first you disarm all the gangbangers & all the narcotraffickers, then we’ll talk.
Guess we now need a precise definition of weapons of war. I've always thought those types of weapons were belt-fed fully automatic weapons. Is that what Lanza used?
Not one of these proprosed 2nd-A infringments would have stopped Lanza.
l. He didn’t use an assault weapon. He used two pistols.
2. He evaded a BG check by stealing weapons.
3. There are millions of normal capacity magazines in circulation. The 1994 crime bill also would not have stopped ownership. Instead of 2 15-round magazines, he could use 3 10-round magazines. (A magazine exchange only takes a second or two).
Did y'all notice he NEVER specifically mentioned members of our elected Senate and House to be on this Alice in Wonderland commission?
Reason? He's going to accept the report which will be just as anti-Constitution as the Benghazi special committee whitewash report was anti-American.
After he accepts the stacked report and thanks every one he will do what he's already decided to do...... by-pass Congress and issue an executive order.
He'll ban every weapon his little black heart desires, right down to pea shooter.....as befits a fiat from any pea brained fascist dictator .
“no definition of what an assault weapon is...
They will probably spell this out in legislation as being any weapon (rifle or handheld pistol) that can accept a removable “magazine” or “cartridge”.
Expect this .
All our problems were fixed in 1968!
“Today we begin to disarm the criminal and the careless and the insane. All of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day.”
—Lyndon Johnson when he signed the 1968 GCA into law.
