He would rather do anything to keep from creating a job.
Millions of Americans and our Special Ops vets want the truth about Benghazi and Extortion 17. Only the political hacks in DC don’t seem to care. Severe shortage of spine and guts amongst the sewer slime, ya think?
All of these people were directly or indirectly defending the Constitution. Taking a crap on the Constitution will honor no one.
I’m still waiting for the media or the GOP to ask did Obama go to bed when he heard of the attacks?
Also bozo mentions this and yet it was his AG which knew of gun running to Mexican drug lords and the was using the violence there to try and take the 2nd amendment away, even bringing the Mexican Pres to the congress to talk about gun violence
The fight to humanely care for the dangerously mentally ill should obsess us.
Obama is one of these mentally ill, He intends to destroy America. He is obsessed with guns because they stand between him and a dictatorship.
Bozo is more obsessed with homosexuality than anything else, even meeting with them in Russia while we pay for that visit and correct if I ma wrong but iosn;t the white house still closed to tours?
Well, it sure obsesses YOU. It's pretty much your only goal, legislatively.
Oh, sure, you have sociological goals, such as the total destruction of America, but your only legislative one is disarming the American people so your folk can pick us clean.
Why is GUN VIOLENCE such a big thing for him? Isn't KNIFE VIOLENCE, BASEBALL-BAT VIOLENCE, or simple MOBS-OF-PEOPLE-BEATING-AN-INDIVIDUAL-VIOLENCE even on his radar?
I know the answer to that. It's because he's obsessed with taking guns so the remainder of his agenda will go more smoothly.
That deserves repeating.
The man has no heart or soul. The only thing he truly possesses or cares about is His Agenda.
Oh we’re obsessed alright, Obama! We’re obsessed with people like you who try to foist your socialist ideologies on us! Take all those billions of dollars you’re peeing down the drain on your radical islamist friends and countries and help our mentally ill get help. The answers are so simple that sometimes I’d like to puke! But, the answers don’t fit your plans for taking this country down! You don’t fool most of us American people, but most of all, you don’t fool God! He’ll deal with you in due time!
“Severe shortage of spine and guts amongst the sewer slime, ya think?”
I think it is two things.
1. The obsession of the MSM to protect and promote President Obama, no matter what happens.
2. Absolute fear of the MSM by the Republican leadership that may have some blackmail thrown in for good measure.
This administration has shown (from President Obama’s previous elections) that they have no integrity or ethics when it comes to getting and keeping power. With the MSM at their backs, blackmail could be easy and very, very useful.
Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence, released in June 2013
Here are some key findings from the CDC report, Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence, released in June:
1. Armed citizens are less likely to be injured by an attacker:
Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was used by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.
2. Defensive uses of guns are common:
Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.
3. Mass shootings and accidental firearm deaths account for a small fraction of gun-related deaths, and both are declining:
The number of public mass shootings of the type that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School accounted for a very small fraction of all firearm-related deaths. Since 1983 there have been 78 events in which 4 or more individuals were killed by a single perpetrator in 1 day in the United States, resulting in 547 victims and 476 injured persons. The report also notes, Unintentional firearm-related deaths have steadily declined during the past century. The number of unintentional deaths due to firearm-related incidents accounted for less than 1 percent of all unintentional fatalities in 2010.
4. Interventions (i.e, gun control) such as background checks, so-called assault rifle bans and gun-free zones produce mixed results:
Whether gun restrictions reduce firearm-related violence is an unresolved issue. The report could not conclude whether passage of right-to-carry laws decrease or increase violence crime.
5. Gun buyback/turn-in programs are ineffective in reducing crime:
There is empirical evidence that gun turn in programs are ineffective, as noted in the 2005 NRC study Firearms and Violence: A Critical Review. For example, in 2009, an estimated 310 million guns were available to civilians in the United States (Krouse, 2012), but gun buy-back programs typically recover less than 1,000 guns (NRC, 2005). On the local level, buy-backs may increase awareness of firearm violence. However, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for example, guns recovered in the buy-back were not the same guns as those most often used in homicides and suicides (Kuhn et al., 2002).
6. Stolen guns and retail/gun show purchases account for very little crime:
More recent prisoner surveys suggest that stolen guns account for only a small percentage of guns used by convicted criminals. According to a 1997 survey of inmates, approximately 70 percent of the guns used or possess by criminals at the time of their arrest came from family or friends, drug dealers, street purchases, or the underground market.
7. The vast majority of gun-related deaths are not homicides, but suicides:
Between the years 2000-2010 firearm-related suicides significantly outnumbered homicides for all age groups, annually accounting for 61 percent of the more than 335,600 people who died from firearms related violence in the United States.
Why No One Has Heard This
Given the CDCs prior track record on guns, you may be surprised by the extent with which the new research refutes some of the anti-gun movements deepest convictions.
What are opponents of the Second Amendment doing about the new data? Perhaps predictably, theyre ignoring it. President Obama, Michael Bloomberg and the Brady Campaign remain silent. Most suspicious of all, the various media outlets that so eagerly anticipated the CDC research are looking the other way as well. One must wonder how media coverage of the CDC report may have differed, had the research more closely fit an anti-gun narrative.
Even worse, the few mainstream journalists who did report the CDCs findings chose to cherry-pick from the data. Most, like NBC News, reported exclusively on the finding that gun suicides are up. Largely lost in that discussion is the fact that the overall rate of suicideregardless of whether a gun is involved or notis also up.
Maybe he should have spoken about his Secretary of Defense ... the second one that couldn’t even protect its own ... had to call outsiders to come in and shoot the bad guy after a half hour or so.
Let the turd in the white house give up his SS protection and mingle with us peons. Let him put some skin in the game - the narcissistic a$$hole.
If Obama has accomplished anything, its that people need to be armed and protected from their own government.
> Obama is Obsessed with destroying America.
Disarm, Defeat & Destroy is his objective.
Alaska, Arkansas, And Arizona all started in 1986 as NO ISSUE, and are all now Unrestricted. Nice.
There is nothing that the Obama fascists would like better than to have an unarmed electorate to push around, manipulate, and cow.
Most have NO idea of the horrors Obama would wreck on our people.
Good Read on Obama Fascism
LOL!! By his choice of words (obsess), he is still annoyed at the house vote on defunding OCare. They were expecting people to give up and give in.
i’ve always found it funny when dems demand we hand in our guns... from behind armored walls, bullet proof glass, and ringed by marines
marines with loaded weapons, mind you. unlike those unfortunates on base recently.
on base and completely unarmed. wtf
(well, no ammo... an American soldier is never truly unarmed ;)
There are a whole lot of people that worked with and around her that should be Subpoenaed. She would be the last scumbag I would want to talk to.
Obama is a very dangerous man. He really believes that taking guns away from law-abiding citizens is helpful.
He wants to arm Al-Qaeda in Syria with the same arms he wants to ban Americans from owning.
That should pretty much tell Americans all they need to know about this traitor.
Somewhere, there's a picture of this guy wearing a lavender tank-top at a Cher concert.
If we could somehow prevent all Obama supporters from possessing guns, there would be almost no gun crimes in America. We would have a murder rate lower that Sweden’s.
More exploitation by the Kenyan. Barry is a real, dope-smoking sicko. Sorry Barry, I’m “obsessed” with freedom and intend to stay that way until the day you kill me with one of your death panels. You wouldn’t understand. You have to be an American.
The U.S. is third in murders throughout the world.”
Actually 108 or 110th, as anyone who can punch up Wikipedia can see.
Transparent as all heck.
Don’t you mean “Ahab’’?
Serving as a mirror reflecting the devastating effects of his evil leadership upon this country, I am more obsessed with the wish that our dear leader get a case of malignant cancer.
I’m obsessed with gun laws - spreading concealed carry and constitutional carry, spreading and expanding Stand-Your-Ground, and repealing those laws that infringe on our God-given right to keep and bear arms. We ought to be obsessed with gun laws.
Easy to say when my tax dollars pay to protect his a$$ with guns. In a fair world, he would protect himself.
“The issue is never the real issue: the real issue is always The Revolution, The cause is never the real cause: the real cause is always the acquisition of power.”
D’oh, yes, you are right.
Apparently not obsessed with the concern of crime in Chicago.
There were child casualties in the Chicago park a few days ago, right?
Boy, is this guy full of it.
And if you take blacks out of the stats we have a lower murder rate than Canada.
Not one whit concerned, never mind obsessed. None of those victims are his “sons”, take note.
On one hand more restrictions for US citizens and out of the other giving assault weapons with no restrictions to the same bunch that terrorized this country on 9/11. Somehow this country is supplying our enemy with arms. I don’t understand how an act of treason can become main stream even if you are full Kool Aide. Somebody has a forked tongue and needs to be held accountable. Our Founding Fathers and Veterans who gave up their lives for our freedom will soon roll over in their graves. When they do this rolling thunder will open up eyes that have been fogged over. Then accountability will come.
He has a team working on that, he's obsessed with "golf" or whatever he does that he calls "golf".
For lack of any competence, a plan or even a clue, hey grab the guns!
Seeing him out of office obsesses me.
