President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his "full weight" behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.

"I'm going to be putting forward a package and I'm going to be putting my full weight behind it," Obama said in an interview aired on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"I'm going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again."

If Obama were wise, he would thank God that we value peace and (relative) tranquility and that we're willing to go through the processes by which these things are usually sorted out.

Because the alternative is that we organize... set objectives... kill a bunch of tyrants... evaluate... reapply as necessary.

But he doesn't believe that could happen.

Yeah... let's see how that works out for him.

I don’t think they are going for short term. I think they are going for long term. Wait until we the people who believe in the constitution die and he can have his ‘voter base’ as the only ones around to do this to.

then again chaos is what the left lives on.

Of course Obama wants to take guns..just like Hitler, to control a nation you must disarm its citizens..the same quote from Adolf is on Occupy Wall Street’s facebook page..when Newtown happened Obama and his cronies creamed their pants with delight..they will use dead children to promote the agenda they have always had, to disarm the American people

Bring it you communist/democrat Obama piece of crap . We in the South and in Louisiana are ready.

I hate these evil democrats/communists like Obama and Frankenfienstien. Everything they do is to empower an already too powerful government and at the same time take away our rights and freedoms , especially our right to own things like guns or anything really

How many “victims” of mass shooters are there per year? Compare that to the 2 million home invasions per year, the 400,000 women raped each year(just those reported). but the media makes it seem like mass shootings are all there is.

These stupid mass shooters that seek the media fame are a fluke statistically insignificant.

Out of 330 million people in the U.S.A only a handful have been mass shooters, the stars of the media/demcorats, the shooting stars.

compare that to the fact that 2,000,000 home burglaries are reported each year in the United States.
those are just the reported ones. The media is purposely putting many people who live in homes in danger by trying to take away their right and ability to defend themselves. The media hides this but concentrates on mass shootings which are trillions of times less likely to happen to you ( t never will believe me ). But there is a good chance criminals will invade your home. what are we supposed to do if 3 black young thugs invade our homes? Yes I most people will wish then to have an “assault” weapon , or at least a semi-automatic .45 which is what is needed in that situation, at least but a full automatic weapon would be even better at stopping these monsters invading our home.

almost 400,000 women get raped every year in the U.S. ,many of those get tortured and murdered too. So the media is putting many women in danger by hiding the rapes and murders of women but focusing on disarming them so they can’t defend themselves too.

and I’m a man but I have female family members. the democrats want us disarmed so they can control us , genocide us, so we can’t defend against a tyranical government and above all to empower government and at the same time disempower the individual

“I'm going to be putting forward a package and I'm going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said

But many here assured us that Romney's talk of repealing Obamacare and of federalism and getting the federal government out of the way was all lies and that he was no different than this communist dictator Obama. So they campaigned endlessly here against Romney

Even in so called ‘blue’ states, like California he will be flabbergasted by the resistance (and I am sure states like NY and IL are similar).
There are pockets of liberal sissy men, however the rest of the state is rural and will never give into the government confiscation of weapons.
Even in the hell hole pockets beyond just liberals compounds, does barry really think street gangs will give up their weapons?
Hum, ok not phrasing this like its in my mind but hopefully you get the point.

I can’t speak for NY, but there are a LOT of folks here in Illinois who will not buckle under.

These people would do well to remember just how many gun manufacturers there are here.

Springfield Armory
Rock River Arms
Rock Island Arms
Armalite

They aren’t selling all of their wares down in Texas.

Put your stupid confederate idea of “War of Northern Aggression” aside once and for all. The southern democrats tried to throw aside the Constitution in the name of slavery and lost. Get the hell over it.

The kenyan is trying, like the idiot democrat party did in 1860, to do away with the parts of the Constitution it does not like. This time it will not be a civil war, but a second revolution to reestablish the Republic and the Constitution as it was established by the founders. There will be no borderlines or Mason-Dixon line anymore than there was a set of borders when the founders rose against the oppression of Britain. Not all of the colonies in the first revolution fully supported the cause and not all parts of the population of all the states will fully support a second revolution. There will be resistance all right, and a lot more than the kenyan anticipates.

The Posts here are a lot of loose talk.

No one can stand alone when they come for your guns.

If you really want to beat this form militia’s to demonstrate, and stand with each other.

Stand for your Copnstitutional Rights, against the Usurper.
Demonstrate en Masse’
Send a peaceful message they cannot be confused by and then stand ready.

Never think for one minute that your neighbor the cop will not come for your gun, He will. A few might desert, but 95% of them will come for your gun when told to, and they will come in force, Meet them one at a time and you are dead meat.

Whe the time comes , be ready, but don’t be ready alone.

That is correct. The North and South have a common goal to protect our individual liberties against a tryrannical government.

Just posted that on therightscoop where they have a video of New Orleans and how they DID confiscate the guns of law abiding citizens!!!

http://www.therightscoop.com/the-untold-story-of-gun-confiscation-after-hurricane-katrina/

WATCH THE VIDEO and then tell me if you won't give up your guns in teh same circomstances!!!! I said it below. No more braves. Easy to play strong on a blog.

*********************************

Which is VERY scary is : they did give up their guns!!! Agree, by force. But all the guys on Free Republic who keep on yelling that that will never works here in America if they want to take our guns should watch this video.

Very very scary. We said when obama was elected that we will not pass whatever red line - we passed all of them without doing anything but blog - now he has been reelected and we will let all the other red lines pass like the first ones.

No more braves. Just bloggers. And when they will decide to take the guns, they will!!!

I've been advocating this approach for years now .... let's see if the "usual suspects" show up here on FR and say once again we have to "change things at the ballot box."

I say the ballot box is BROKEN. Frankly, the game's RIGGED when 47% are living off the rest of us.

I can look at recent election results in both NY and Illinois and say with confidence that those are some of the first states that would buckle under. I mean, come on, there might be some holdouts but NY and Illinois are pretty far gone at this point.

There was the previous assault weapons ban and far more restrictions on our 2nd amendment rights in the past, yet I don't recall much in the way of resistance. Heck, gun control used to far worse than it is now and there was no resistance. I hope this time is different, but I doubt it.

A police Lt. from NC called in and said that officers, most of them “roid heads” in his area will start training next week with the ATF on gun confiscation. He said the training should last from 30-45 days. He also said he has been told to expect the economic collapse first and then the feds will start going after the guns.

Everyone is focusing on Dianne Frankensteins proposed bill, yet she knows full well it has no chance of passing as currently written.

I believe the legislation will be introduced...no doubt, but I also believe this is just a facade.

Obozo’s got a lil trick up his sleeve in executive action. The headlines will read, “Obozo signs executive order banning...blah blah blah”.

He will use as an excuse that congress is deadlocked on the issue and it is his duty as president to stop the madness.

Spoken like a hardcore lib. Make personal attacks and mis-state facts when the only thing you have to contribute is factually inaccurate, simple minded and ludicrous.

I could agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
