Skip to comments.How Obama's Gun 'Order' will Backfire
Posted on 01/20/2013 11:40:25 AM PST by paratrooper82
Among the 23 executive actions President Obama announced yesterday amidst great fanfare (and shameless exploitation of children) is this:
Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
Obama may want to put a hold on that one, until he comes to grips with what happened the last time a U.S. president tried it.

Tables of guns confiscated, pressure on gun dealers for “acurate records.”

Push the button once, then wait. Idiot.
Bloody unlikely to happen a second time.
Even the IPCC knows that the conclusions need to be promulgated first, followed by the prpoer data manipulations to back the forgone conclusions.
More ATF riots.
If Obama pushes immigration and gun control nothing will get done because the divide will get even greater, and the absurd thing is that real stuff actually needs done that can improve the economy and reduce debt.
There is what I call a “cabal of interests” in America that want gun control and they want amnesty for illegals and open borders too, and they are a lot more than your typical liberals, and just maybe they really want nothing done. You’ll see some coming out of the woodwork in both Parties.
List of Sheriffs who won’t enforce...
Sometimes when I post it gets hung for a long time so I have to click the button again. I see double or triple posting here and just figure it happened to them. I don’t think that makes one an idiot.
How refreshing to hear about a University research team with the integrity to dismiss preconceived notions and accurately analyze their data!
Somehow I doubt the libs will be making that mistake again.
Place marker cuz mine is on there! ;)
No prison time...just fines...and confiscation.
Remember...if they found pot on your yacht...they could confiscate your yacht.
We're all going to be criminals !!!
That ain't going to happen again. They will toe the line and find a hockey stick and a penumbra in their research data to conclude that gun ownership causes more crime, family breakups, milk to go bad, AIDS and bitter feelings.
The Left has learned a great deal since this study. To wit: government grants for climate research goes to those who will deliver a report supporting more government involvement and control of all human and economic activity in the interests of “saving the planet”. Those researchers who don’t get it and report honest results don’t get any more money.
I’m certain that the smart folks over at the CDC have been paying attention and no doubt the researchers will be more carefully chosen.
The EPA and CDC have been drawing conclusions and then finding the "science" to prove them for decades. It's nothing new, it is just a bit more blatant now because they have gotten away with it scott free for so long.
The mistake Jimmy Carter made was that he picked an honest tribunal.
We don’t have to worry about that with Obama.
He will find some low lifes at Berkely or elsewhere that will give him what he wants.
Happens to me every time I ping one of my lists even when I don’t get hung up and try again. Just one click, and voila! Two or three dupes. FR is crippled now.
I’m curious about one thing.. There isn’t a letter/statement from each sheriff on the list. How do we know if it’s “real” with no public statement?
If it’s a govt funded study then the study results WILL support the intended policy. If you have any doubt of this then search for paul houser and klamath river dam removal.
The terminally stupid keeps bleating about how gun control will backfire politically on Obama.
It doesn’t work that way for genocidal dictators, morons.
I am surprised to see the sheriff odf Pine County, MN, on that list. Minnesota? You mean there is a place in Minnesota where law enforcement is not a bunch of useless slugs?
(Based on experiences w/ Eagan and Minneapolis police departments. In a word: useless).
, the three scholars found no persuasive scholarly evidence that Americas 20,000 gun-control laws had reduced criminal violence.

It won’t be scholars or scientists this time, it will be political hacks.
Place marker cuz mine isn't.
WHAT??? In Texas??
Or...........maybe it’s just to be assumed. Yeah.
I still want to know how the list was compiled as mine hasn’t issued a statement.
Here is an email I just sent to Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia. Sadly enough he is a very political democrat as is Houston’s Mayor.
Are you going to stand up to President Obamas illegal attempt to abrogate the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution?
It has been clearly detailed in the past that strict gun control laws always lead to confiscation and then ultimately tyranny.
An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
I certainly didnt vote for Obama as President and for darn sure didnt vote for him to be King.
Here is a list of your fellow Sheriffs who will not allow him to further shred the Constitution and stomp on our unalienable rights as Americans.
And we thank you.
Others like myself were cleaning our weapons, making the final sight ins and making our final tweaks to our go bags.
There are MANY of us who are awake and listening.
35 years later, I don’t expect the new researchers to have the intellectual honesty these people did. Today, it’s all about hewing to Liberal orthodoxy with the kind of people that will be carrying out this sort of study.
It’s a great letter....Have you called, too?
I am going to call tomorrow from work.
When I was writing the email and then proof reading I kept taking out cuss words then I would refresh and there were more rather than fewer.
I finally had to start using white-out on the monitor.
Don't. It doesn't work. :) :)
A little advance warning would have been helpful!
A highlighter’s fine, though. ;)
The Pine Co. sheriff’s office is where you go to get your out of state CCL signed.
I took it outside and sprayed it real good with brake cleaner.
I’ll give it about thirty minutes and hose it down then I’m sure it will be good as new.
What could go wrong?
Oh! That’s a grand idea! I’m sure you’ll be back online in a couple of weeks when you get your new computer all hooked up!
Bumping to the moon...
Denver yesterday. Son #2. FORMER BLEEDING HEART LIBERAL!!
One of the convo themes, frequently heard at our rally, was something like: *my husband/wife would be here, but s/he had to work.* Which is wonderful...no one else is going to put food on the table; and there is a certain gratefulness that one even has a job.
I’m sure that will be times in the not to distant future that you will find a way to have your voice heard in your state. Bless you and be safe!
Lovely! Good reason to be proud.
It must be b/c of your unconditional love and patience. Good job mom!
ONE county in Ohio, and it ain’t mine. Dang! And I thought my Sheriff was a Conservative.
No, you're not an idiot. Most of the folks on this forum that call others idiots usually need to look into the mirror.
I'll tell you works here though. Rusty, when it looks like it is hung up, it is not. It has posted, just not finalized. For each time, 1 or 100, that you hit the post button it is going to duplicate. Just close the window after a couple of minutes. Go back to the thread and you will see your post. Works every time.
Scroll through the comments. Some were added in there.
If yours ISN’T, give him a respectful phone call tomorrow.
All of the lists that I am on have been tripling for some time. You can bet that John is working on it.
Great job Eaker.
