He’s right.
It is fear.

Fear of what he may do next!

I went to my local gun shop today and saw that all the ARs were sold and even the older version Mini 14 I sold them a year ago—that was there 2 weeks ago finally got sold.

"I would like to hear from the “Republicans”, more. Last I heard, we’re a “Constitutional Republic”. WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY???????"

^^^ THIS. I'd like to think they are waiting for the "right time"....but I fear that time has already passed.

But they need to know we are watching closely. I can only speak for myself but if they bow to this without a fight, I'll make it my business to work toward replacing each and every one of them. And it won't be hard to find replacements as almost anyone can do NOTHING.

So the president said that we have an irrational fear that he is going to take our guns away, then says he’s going to propose banning guns?

It's almost as if nobody is actually listening to what he says, anyway, so he says the most outrageous, contradictory things. At least no-one in the media is calling him on it, and his followers don't notice the fallacies.

Dictators can be scary people. Even though Obama looks like a smirking faggot and putz of a man, it’s the weak and puny minded little farts who abuse power when they get it, and Obama, like Hitler, is as punkish as they come, though not as intelligent.

Let me see; “folks” that shouldn’t have them . . would that be “Tea Party” “folks” and Conservative “folks”? Certainly not “Occupy” “folks”! Up is down. Down is up. Good is bad. Bad is good. - It IS scary.

Frightened?

Of course we are.

  1. Governments have murdered 262 million of their own citizens in the past 113 years
  2. Gun control was always the first step
  3. The overwhelming majority of those murders were perpetrated by Socialist/Communist/Marxist governments
  4. Comrade Ubama is a rigid Marxist ideologue
Any questions?

“Obama said he would unveil details of his “sensible, common-sense” program for tighter gun controls”

Notice that they call it a program and not a proposal. The President can only propose laws, he has no authority to make laws himself, so anything proper that he comes up with should at most be a proposal, to be submitted to Congress. The fact that they are calling it a “program” is admitting right there that what he is planning is unconstitutional.

Someone tried to tell me today that he was going to do this through Executive Orders, and read something from wikipedia that says EOs are binding laws. Well, I replied that I don’t give a darn what wikipedia, or the Supreme Court says about it, there is no authority in the Constitution for the President to make laws. If he tries to do that, I will consider them unconstitutional and feel free to disobey them at my discretion with no worries of conscience.

We are not supposed to notice those things. Such as noticing that shooting someone in California has less consequences then shooting someone in Texas.

Typical libs. I’m visitng my parents and dad had in on CNN (I know) and that Brit idiot Morgan came on and it was a “gun” special.

In the first 5 minutes they laid out some of the proposed ideas by the administration and the guest (some idiot mayor, Dem) actually said, “while these ideas won’t stop gun crime or violence, they are sensible”.

HUH? Orwell was a prophet.

You got that right, doofus.
Fear that the wannabe tinpot african muslim dictator will finish going through the Bill of Rights and cancelling them all untouched by Congress, the Law, the Supreme Court and supported by his perceived mandate by the mob of fraudulent voters.

Possibly if he could read, but my guess is that he was an “affirmative action” graduate under the “everyone gets a trophy” program.

...and that fear caused by statists like Obama is driving people to gun shops looking for a little bit of insurance.

Facts and logic cannot get a person out of a position that facts and logic did not get them into.

You know rational thinking is lacking when Pravda, Russia’s communist political newspaper, makes sense. In a recent article, Stanislav Mishin writes that after the Bolsheviks seized Moscow in 1917, they promised to leave alone the well-armed citizens if they did not interfere. “They did not and for that were asked afterwards,” writes Mishin, “to come register themselves and their weapons, whereupon they were promptly shot.”

From Cal Thomas: [ he doesn’t always resonate with me], but his column today was good.
