As I understand the new meaning of racist it means everyone that is not “a person of color” is racist. So it no longer matters what you say or not say, what you do or not do, if you are not “a person of color” you are automatically a racist.

Understanding that, why are the Republicans afraid to challenge this administration?

I am beginning to suspect many of the Republican Elites agree with this administration and put up only token opposition.

We have a two party system in name only.

The opinion of many in this nation are simply being ignored, and when that happens in a nation, bad things follow.

IIRC,this guy just passed a top-secret background check.

Not likely. More likely and contained in reports thought to be somewhat reliable: he had a secret clearance, not a TS. Arrests (as opposed to convictions) don't typically show up on secret level clearance checks. The more important question in my mind is if his employer asked to see his DD-214, and why did they hire him if his General Discharge was noted on that form?

Indeed. I am puzzled as to exactly what these a-holes are talking about when they say we need background checks. I have purchased online and at gun shows and each time, a valid FFL dealer must be engaged and the NICS check is done without exception.

Perhaps they mean private sales between two people?

First: “The president supports, as do an overwhelming majority of Americans, common-sense measures to reduce gun violence,” Carney said.

When the left says "gun violence," they mean "gun ownership."

Reducing gun violence = reducing (civilian) gun ownership.

But wait - then again, they CAN’T underline it, because it’ll offend nonunderlinists.

Some of the "heard wet grass" crowd can't read underlined text.

Your question rings true.

I have just about convinced myself to stop voting in national elections and concentrate on my state rep and senator. Why participate in, and condone the charade of pretend republican government, if El Presidente has powers that are limited only by what he thinks he can get away with?

"Why the Gelding Old Party reelected this guy I will never ever understand. He needs to be sent to a Negotiating 101 course."

He doesn't negotiate well and was re-elected for the same reasons that Elmer Fudd never actually shoots Buggs Bunny...

1. Elmer and Buggs both get paychecks from Warner Brothers.
2. Elmer isn't bad, he is just drawn that way to elicit your support for Buggs Bunny.
3. Having the protagonist destroyed by the antagonist ruins the entertainment value of the production for the masses.

I wish ONE reporter would have the guts to ask Carney — if Obama could issue an executive order that might have stopped this, WHY DIDN’T HE DO IT LAST YEAR!!!!

Obama apparently didn’t care to save these 12 people.

When it comes to firearms, the MSM is really on the ball.

And, remember, they know just as much about every other topic that they report on. That's why they're qualified to tell us how our lives should be run. /s

I said nothing about Bush. He was a RINO.

I am refuting your ridiculous statement implying The Idiot is friendly towards guns and their access. How many times does the Moron have to get on TV and LIE about events and people in our nation as an excuse to push for tougher gun laws before you realize he is anything but friendly towards guns or the 2nd?

Ah, but Obama’s DHS - the one that invades every bit of privacy any of us had and has still been a miserable failure at keeping us safe from terrorism, even when the Russians screamed at us that the Tsarnaevs were suspicious - told all law enforcement in the country from the get-go that Constitutionalists are the real terrorists.

Still, it is strikingly audacious that yesterday Obama waived the law in order to be able arm terrorists.... and today he waived the law so he can disarm Americans.

Should tell everybody what they need to know about who Obama is, and why he’s committed so many crimes in order to hide from the American public exactly who he is and what he is about.

When the liberals ask “How did this guy get a weapon?” the response should be “How did he get a gun on a military installation?”

Absolutely NO evidence an AR-15 was used yet every news outlet reported that’s the gun that was used. I think “reporters” these days “report” their wishes then hope their wishes come true.

Catch him without a teleprompter and in a half snit and ask him if he likes his skeet broiled or fried.

Y’know, a lot of this problem is self-inflicted. We as gun owners have a real bad tendency to “hide our light under a bushel basket.” That is to say that most gun owners don’t carry and those that do tend to carry concealed. Which might be OK from a tactical perspective, but in the long run just undercuts our position. Very few gun owners Open Carry the Tools of Liberty. And it’s not helping us one little bit.

Ask yourself: would the kind of senseless butchery we’ve seen in CT and DC and CO and other places have occurred if even 10% of the population Open Carried?

No, it probably would not.

And we also have to ask whether we would even be hearing the tired bleatings of the gun grabbers if 10% of the population Open Carried?

No, we probably would not.

So while we complain about the gun grabbers and fight them politically, it continues to be something of a rearguard effort. We could largely eliminate violent crime and get marginalize the gun grabbers in one fell swoop if just say one out of 4 or one out of 5 gunowners would just openly and proudly carry the Tools of Liberty as they went about their day to day business.

“And yet, they seem to be winning and beating us.....”

The good news is this....

Millions of new NRA members since last Fall;
Record number of firearms sold in the past 10 months;
Gun shows packed with people buying guns and ammo.....
First time gun owners buying up firearms and ammo at a frenzied rate.....
Gun grabbers recalled in Colorado.....

There is a silver lining.

Carney: He’d look good in a Nazi uniform, working for Joseph Goebbels.

Where did they find this guy, “Fools R Us”? The local mental institution? Oh, I think it was either Time magazine or Newsweek.

Well, that explains a lot.

I’m so desperate that I’d take Robert Gibbs back as White House propagandist. And that is DESPERATION, my friends.

Nothing will stop him except the American People. When will they (we) stop him and how? Demand action from your congressman to stop unconstitutional “executive orders” and tell him if he doesn’t, you’ll throw him out and put in a congressman who WILL stop him.

Someone (mayor of DC?) was blaming this on the sequestration.... If they just had more money, he would not have slipped through, it seems.

Yeah, that one percent smaller raise than they wanted really created havoc. We're such skinflints.
