Obama asks Americans to help with gun law changes [Totalitarian Pretends He Cares What You Think]
CBS ^ | December 21, 2012

Posted on 12/21/2012 5:33:15 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

A website set up by the White House to solicit petitions has been flooded in the wake of last Friday's gun massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school, and today, President Obama issued a video response to petitioners, indicating that he hears the outpouring loud and clear.

"We hear you," said Mr. Obama. "Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear arms...It's encouraging that many gun owners have stepped up this week to say there are steps we can take to prevent more tragedies like the one in Newtown - steps that both protect our rights and protect our kids."

"This week I called on Congress to take up and pass common sense legislation that has the support of a majority of the American people, including banning the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips."

The president also referenced the gun violence task force he created, chaired by Vice President Biden, that has been tasked with generating policy ideas about how to reduce gun violence.

The only gun law changes I want to see would be the repeal of all but the second amendment.

This could very well land up in the courts.

“” there are steps we can take to prevent more tragedies like the one in Newtown - steps that both protect our rights and protect our kids””

Maybe they could make it illegal to shoot people or they could put up signs saying you can’t bring guns to school.
Oh wait, they already did that.

Yep, the power play begins today.

Pandering website and "petition" to 0. Also propaganda ads running on the Fox News website from the "Mayors against illegal guns" outfit looking to gin up sympathy.

This would be a very good time to get some competent Republican leadership to keep the GOP RINOs in ranks.

"Pro-gun" rats, like Joe Manchin, are now showing their true colors.

What changes would I make?

Repeal USC Title 18 922 in it's entirety. Remove the "F" from the BATFE.

Remind the States that Art 6 Para 2, not to mention the 14th, makes the Second Amendment the "Supreme Law of the Land" the "Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding" and that all State and local laws that infringe on the mere keeping and bearing of arms are null and void.

I would then push for stiffer penalties for misuse of firearms and greater legal protections for those who use their firearms to defend themselves or others...

If gun control is the response we’re going to get from Barry and the ‘RATS, we’re going to continue seeing these kinds of shootings. It’s the society, stupid!

Yep and he will publish the results from all his liberal brethren on his website and claim this is what ALL the America people want then pull an Obamacare type sidestep and put it before the Supreme Court with Judge Roberts ready to sign off on repealing the 2nd Amendment (I know you’re not supposed to be able something like this without 2/3s the House of Representatives and Senate’s approval but 0 always seems to find a way to cheat the system)

Scott Brown is first GOP senator to back a new federal assault weapons ban

The outgoing Massachusetts senator had previously said states should decide their own gun laws. His change of outlook comes as his name has risen to the top of candidates to run in a potential special Senate election.

I'm all in favor of a gun control law which would impose severe penalties for any whack-jobs who murdered their mother to even touch an air rifle or any caliber above it.

Gun owners should follow the lead of the gay marriage folks. After the recent certifications of homo marriage in three states, the next step will be to have gay "married" couples relocate to other states and to sue for recognition of their status based on the reciprocity of laws from state to state. It is inevitable that activist judges will order gay marriage into other states.

Gun owners will then have the template for demolishing anti-gun laws. Have Arizona or Texas CCW holders relocate to Chicago and New York and sue to have their lawful status recognized irrespective of local ordinances based on similar orders regarding gay marriage.

TYo say that obama believes in the 2nd Amendment, is somebody that has NRVER read his words while an Illinois State Senator, or a U.S. Senator!

He has been anti-gun from the word GO!

Why has he decided to hold back firearms from those that have already bought and paid for them through the Civilian Marksmanship program, which is federally chartered?

Why did The Washington Times, 09/03/2010, report that Obama was ‘afraid of the M1 Garand rifle’?

“[A] government resting on a minority is an aristocracy, not a Republic, and could not be safe with a numerical physical force against it, without a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed people”

We should all right in and send this man a copy of the oath of office that he has taken and supposedly will take in a few weeks. You know, the oath in which he pledges to “defend the Constitution”.

Unlike gay marriage, we have all of the logical and legal history we need.

All that is really required is Art 6 para 2, The Bill of Rights, and maybe the 14th Amendment.

No need to over write someones Religion. No other burden placed upon others. Nothing.

All they have to do is get the f*ck out of our way and STOP infringing our Rights.

Completely different issues.

Yes of course you are right. But that won’t help. They simply dont admit the 2A means exactly what it says. To the gun banners, the “people” in the 2nd are a different group than those mentioned in the 1st, 4th, 9th, 10th, and 17th Amendments, and the Preamble and in the Constitution itself. Their judges will not admit the 2A is as ironclad as you believe. I’m simply advocating a pathway by utilizing the power of the Courts as left currently operates.

Um... They are wrong. It doesn't matter what they want.

You don't play the game by the other guys rules on their playing field and expect good results.
