Posted on 02/04/2013 12:29:10 PM PST by ColdOne

President Obama claimed Monday that a "consensus" is forming around the kinds of "common-sense" gun control measures he's pushing in Washington, in his first campaign-style stop as part of a second-term push for new firearms laws.

Sounds good, but the devil is in the details and that is where it bites you!

You can bet his “common-sense” proposals will bite where it hurts!

Ubama doesn't even have a passing acquaintance with "common sense."

All he knows is what Satanist Saul Alinsky taught him.

In otherwords his media whores and lapdogs have had time to rig the polls and the propaganda script has been readied and distributed.

The consensus is 5 million background checks in two months and 500,000 people, 10,000 a month joining the NRA.

Alright, lets negotiate gun laws. You give up something, we give up something till a “consensus” is reached.

We got the guns, you got nothing to negotiate with but threats of laws which won’t pass the Congress.

End of subject.

The only “consensus” an unapologetic narcissistic megalomaniac gets is the muttering and bleating of the sychopants who huddle around him hoping to either garner attention or safety with their acquiescence.

If the American public had even the slightest modicum of “common sense”, this son of a whore would be nothing more than a foot note in American history.

No new laws, period.

Its time to remove some of the ones in place.

His voters only tolerate him on Election Day.

He’s shown no ability to rally anyone towards anything except his own election. Its been pretty obvious since his first election that he has been tuned out by even his supporters when anything other than his own election is brought up.

His election = free stuff for the free stuff legions

Gun bans offer his free stuff legions nothing...there will be no rallying to him on this either.

There most certainly is a “consensus” forming, but, not for more “gun control” and if King Obumbum could actually state a truth, the largest back lash in the history of this great Nation is forming and the day of action is coming! King Obumbum has awakened a “sleeping giant” and he and his ilk are about to find out the hard way why the American people value their “natural” rights and freedoms!

Why do you think King Obumbum continues to push for gun control, stating: “this needs to happen immediately, before the shock from Conn. wears off!” What he is NOT telling the American people: “this needs to happen immediately, before the American people wake up and figure out what we are really doing to them!”

Eight Deuce on the loose!

when you exist in an echo chamber, everything seems to be a consensus.

The Assclown IS right—consensus IS forming—forming that the Assclown should take his gun control legislation and “shove it” as Lurch’s wife would say.

It IS, but it is AGAINST his gun control proposals. Amazing how the media can change a simple sentence by inserting or deleting a word here and there.

You bet your high capacity magazines it does: Victims. When you want to go from Occupying to looting it helps to know that the victims wont shoot back.

Of course no one talks about the attack on equality. God made man, but Sam Colt made them equal.

This is nothing more than Obama and the media setting the Republicans up! Obama knows there is no way he can pass any gun reform legislation even if he had control of both houses. Obama and the Media want to make the public think there is strong support for reform but the republicans are blocking everything. He is setting the republicans up for 2014 where half the population will think it is the republicans are blocking gun reform, health care reform, tax reform, the poor economy, etc, etc, and of course the republicans will sit back like they have the last 4 years and let him do it.

My compromise. We require background checks on all transfers, but the background check is simply a check, and there is no government accessible record of what if anything was bought. No model, serial number. That’s a private matter for the seller’s inventory records, like any seller of goods.

And the system may be used by anybody for any purpose, like a quick background check on a babysitter or prospective employee.

The “consensus” is that the proposals will be milked for publicity through hearings, floor speeches, and the news media, but that nothing of consequence is likely to pass.

I noticed something in the sound bites from the Obama anti-gun rally in Minnesota, this morning.

First, they were touting the steps that Minnesota was taking to step up gun security, but said that they needed to go further with background checks. The sheriff agreed and went on to say that Minnesota needed to do something about the mentally ill getting guns through more background checks. Then, the guy added, oh not the mentally ill who are receiving treatment, just the ones who aren’t being treated at all. It was just plain nuts. how the heck would a background check determine if someone is mentally ill if the person was not being treated?

Pretty good idea. That way, it’s up to the individual citizen to make the choice to sell a firearm or not. The sort of thing that citizens are perfectly equipped to do better than government.

Never. There is no encroachment, on any Right, that did not start out as a ‘recommendation’; seat belt laws for example.

I, for one, will never support any background check. I will happily pay the extra $$ to know my hand-shake and trading of metal for $$ will be the end of the line, as far as the State/Fed are concerned.

As much as no bill has cost what it was estimated, so to no nose under the tent should be allowed; for while I, as a Citizen, am obligated to obey the Law, those that derive the power from the same Citizens, willfully try to place their boot upon our necks.

No thanks!
