. . . and yet he is calling for expansion of the same laws that fail to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and instead take them out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. Could he be more transparent?

Rather, the fight to keep our gun rights will instead “obsess us”, to use his words.

Undo the damage of the Clinton executive order banning arms on military bases and you can fix this.

How many military are the Clintons and Obamas going to hurt or kill in the name of gun laws?

The fight to humanely care for the dangerously mentally ill should obsess us. And ending his race baiting. And end deadly multi-generation dependency. And....

Haw-haw. The last time America *did* get a bunch more gun laws. GUN LIBERTY LAWS.

If Obama wants more of the same, pretty soon even the crime enclaves like Chicago, New York, Detroit, Flint, and California will have their honest citizenry armed, and face a steep drop off of criminals. And crime as well.

Dead criminals = Less crime. Simple math.

Gun crime is caused by the evil that men do.

Terrorism is caused by an evil supremacist ideology.

Terrorism is more preventable than crime.

This administration supports an evil Islamist imperialist supremacist ideology.

His “obsession” is a distraction from his love is Islamic theocratic rule.

He said no other advanced nation endures the kind of gun violence seen in the United States

BS is BS.

“The U.S. is third in murders throughout the world. If you remove Chicago, Washington, D.C., New Orleans and Detroit then the U.S. is fourth from the bottom. These are four cities with the toughest gun laws in the nation and, of course, these are four cities ruled by Democrats.

No other civilized nation tolerates uncivilized behavior from a significant subculture in their population which is responsible for 80% of the murders, virtually all using illegal weapons that no number of new laws will prevent.
Criminals, by definition don't care about laws.
Disarming the victims, on the other hand...

nary a day goes by that the Idiot in Chief doesn’t embarrass himself and America

(plus, cause tons of heartburn all over the world)

note: for some insane reason, US military personnel are not permitted to carry weapons at the military base where the Muslim-loving shooter did his mass murder (jihad?)

had there not been gun restrictions on the base, someone almost certainly would have stopped this terrible event much sooner

“Rather, the fight to keep our gun rights will instead “obsess us”, to use his words. “

A cop pulls over a guy who hands the cop his DL and CCW. The cop says, “what are you carrying?”
The guy says, “I’ve got a .45 on my belt, a .38 long barrel in the glove box and a AR-15 in the trunk.”
The cop says, “What are you afraid of?”
The guy says, “Not a damned thing.”

The leader of my country hates me. Plain and simple. He does not want me to have upward mobility. He does not want my kids to have ONE 40-hour job, but demands they have TWO 30-hour jobs. He hates my politics. He hates my skin color. He hates my limited successes and aspiration. He hates my rights under the Bill of Rights. He hates my religion and forces adoption and tolerance of another religion that hates me. He hates my ideas and ideals. I am a minority of ONE and my leader is actively discriminating against me. He has implanted active members of the Muslim Brotherhood into high positions in his regime - and they hate me. He hates the military that protects my rights and provides for my protection. He hates my country ... and I hardly ever use the word “hate” since it is so strong, but in this case it is very fitting. Divisive? Does not want unity if it includes conservative principles? You betcha!

We've been obsessing on it since 1986... and it looks like we've gone from 41 states that don't allow, or only "may" allow, concealed-carry... to, after 25 years of debate, now having 42 states that either MUST approve any qualified applications, or don't even require a license.

Two valid points in this.

First. Colorado clearly demonstrate the power of the pro constitution and pro second amendment voters have in this country. It clearly should tell the socialist politicians that the majority of our voters, even in a liberally controlled area, will not stand for more more useless restrictive gun control. The voters clearly understand that this is people control and not gun control.

Second. There is history to review where all can clearly what happened the last time they tried a national gun ban on modern sporting rifles. The socialists got slaughtered in the next congressional elections. Then take a peak at the 2010 congressional elections. This will fire up that voting base X 10.

I use the term "socialist" quite accurately. I spent a lot of years in Europe listening to the openly socialist politicians there make speeches and read their positions in the printed news. The words that come out of the Democrats mouths here, now, are Identical to the openly proud to be socialist politicians in Europe. Make no mistake these people follow a strict socialist agenda. They are SOCIALISTS in every way!!!!!

Mr. Obama’s comments were made as he was surrounded by MEN WITH GUNS to protect him.

Why is this necessary, if the solution is LESS GUNS? Lead by example, Barry.

Yada, yada.

Chicago, which has some of the toughest, most restrictive gun laws in the country, is well on its way to being Murder City, USA. Wash DC is up there also.

And the fight to not lump all suffering with mental illness into the “dangerous” category should also obsess us. Millions of people suffer from serious mental illness - my youngest son included. Most are not dangerous at all, they are just suffering. But the only time the media talks about mental illness is when a tragedy occurs and the general public gets impression anyone with mental illness is dangerous. That’s simply not the case.

I forced myself to listen to this speech. Obama held captive family, friends, and co-workers of the victims to make a crass and cynical political speech on gun control.

Obama didn’t honor the dead and their families, he used them-—yet once again...

“Reprising his role of the nation’s consoler in chief...”

Rather, the user- and manipulator-in chief lied again to push a failing political agenda for media consumption.

Obama was petulant, PO’d, and seemingly depressed. He wasn’t there to comfort or console the bereaved. He was there to punish the uncooperative.

The left won’t have the guts to fully force their entire socialist utopia on us until they are able to control and eliminate, or confiscate, most guns in the hands of patriots.

When they feel they have neutralized “Bitter Clingers” they will be ready to unveil and implement their Final Solution.

Obama is spinning and twisting the truth about every gun related incident in an effort to speed up that process.

I believe he is getting impatient because he wants to accomplish gun control and gun eleimination before his term is up.

He is starting to overreach and that will be his downfall. Obama’s legacy won’t be gun elimination - it will be a revolt against the tyranny of the federal government.

That’s the first thing I thought of....the mass shooting in Norway.

And in Germany, the U.K., Canada, Australia, etc.

Not to mention the horrific mass murder in the shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The victims were not allowed self-defense firearms, but the Muslim terrorists had no problem obtaining weapons.
