Rush Limbaugh: Democrats, media want 'gun grab'

Rush Limbaugh: Democrats, media want 'gun grab' By: Kevin Cirilli January 9, 2013 05:54 PM EST

Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday that President Barack Obama and Democrats are “planning a gun grab” in wake of the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 kids and six others dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

“What could a bunch of liberal Democrats worried about guns, talking about using executive orders…? What could it possibly be about? A gun grab,” the conservative commentator said on his radio program, according to a show transcript. “So make no mistake: They are planning a gun grab.”

Limbaugh was discussing Vice President Joe Biden’s public remarks from Wednesday when Biden said that “executive action” can be taken with regard to gun control.

Limbaugh said it’s further proof that liberals want a gun grab, which he said the media has endorsed.

“Biden’s not hiding it. It’s all over the media. And, by the way, the media’s all for it. There are many lessons people can learn about the left. One of the key lessons is they never give anything up. Once they begin a quest, they don’t stop until they’ve got it,” Limbaugh said.

Take my guns. Be my guest.

“the media’s all for it”

... Because lots of gullible, thought-less people will want this and will watch the ads on shows about it.
AND THE MEDIA CHARGES MORE FROM ADVERTISERS FOR GULLIBLE VIEWERS.

I am beginning to think that Biden and Hillary are trying to get the people to rise up and depose this wannabee dictator. But, they just keep underestimating the stupidity of the Low-Information Voters who don’t care what their Marxist Messiah does.

Based on what many folks here say about Rush, I thought he never really addressed issues of the day and was just a self bloviating entertainer..........?

True enough, Rush. I have to say things are becoming worse because in truth. We have No One as a opposition Leader to the regime's agenda. This is why the agenda of theirs is moving on confidentially. We have no one fighting. Where are they. McCain. Lindsey, Boehner. Cantor. We are holding on for many years without a leader. Bush went in and turned himself into a big government spender who left us with the Patriot Act and Homeland Security. A perfect platform for the current regime to use illegally as people warned President Bush that this could happen. Obama wants a civil unrest so he can step in to control the people as claiming it is a national emergency.

Well. we have bigger fish to fry to go that route though he brought out the crazy women voters for Obama in record numbers after his slip of calling the nutty woman a slut. So, if this goes the route of blaming the base, it can go right back to where it started. Pimping for a man who in his state wanted and passed gay marriage and a platform to Obamacare. You would never get me to blame patriotic and God fearing people for this dictator. GOP-e are to blame for a lot since GW Bush failed on many ideas. Go back to Reagan’s ideas (our only chance to save America).

spouse says I need to explain: TheThe phrase molon labe (Ancient Greek μολὼν λαβέ molṑn labé; reconstructed Ancient Greek pronunciation [molɔːn labé]; Modern Greek pronunciation [moˈlon laˈve]) means "Come and take them". It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.

HE did?????

Ever give any thought to George Stephanopolos' out of the blue question to Romney about states' rights and contraception back on January 9, 2012 during his moderation of the Republican primary debate?

Ever wonder why that question might have been asked, especially since contraception has never, ever, been an issue anywhere, in any campaign, since the early 1970's when the Catholic church was under fire for their stance on contraception?

Wake up and smell the coffee Christie, that question was not an accident nor was the fake "democrat congressional hearing" that starred the illustrius skank Sandra Fluk..............

We have bigger worries now. This was done and no getting it back. By your own words, it proves that Rush slipped into the trap. Have a nice evening and a nice cup of coffee on me.

Agree. The same is happening with the gun debate. Fully coordinated across the entire media in lock step.

I don’t think even Obama thinks he can take away our guns. Everything he does for the next two years is geared to make republicans look like the bad guys. Fiscal CLIFF, the debt ceiling and now this.

Even if he can’t get anything done to “grab guns,” he will say he tried and republicans are baby killers. He wants congress and the senate, then it really will by a hard tyranny in the good old USA.

We’ll see. Every name, every vote on every bill, especially in the House.

There is a massive, massive undercurrent in America against gun control.

The left has taken over our media, and carries on like they are the ones in charge. They are not in charge.

And they recognize their time is ending.

Shame on our “media”.
