Exasperated Obama: Inability to get tougher gun laws shameful
CNN ^ | June 10, 2014 | Kevin Liptak

An exasperated President Barack Obama on Tuesday expressed new surprise and dismay at the lack of congressional action on stemming gun violence, hours after yet another American community was jolted by a deadly school shooting.

Without congressional support, Obama signed dozens of unilateral executive actions meant to quell gun violence. Though broad action, like banning assault weapons or high capacity magazines, still require congressional approval.

He just might find the “tipping point,” mightn’t he?

Funny that Obama should bring up the matter of citizens being armed. Not that there is a correlation, but Maliki seems to have formed the opinion that it might not be a bad idea.

Maliki offers to arm citizens willing to fight ISIS

did any of those actions target violent criminals? Let me guess, no. Did all of them target the rights of non-violent law abiding citizens? Of course they did.

mr soebarkah: You have demonstrated quite clearly by your own actions why Americans feel the need to “keep and bear Arms”.

Now, go eff yourself.

The President could immediately by executive order ban all guns or weapons of any kind...on his protective detail.

Anyone who has armed security should not be able to spout gun control arguments without that being prominently reported.

I wonder why Obama makes all this political hay out of school shootings in predominantly white suburban areas, but doesn't give a sh!t when a half-dozen black yoots are killed over any given weekend in Chicago.

Why do you hate black children so much, Barry Obama?

Hey Barack!

What “tougher gun law” do you think would have stopped ANY of the headline murders in the last 3 months?

The only things that gets Obama exasperated is when he misplaces the remote control or runs out of cigarettes.

I wonder how many more of these school shootings the Obama Administration is going to arrange, so to get his gun control pushed through Congress? Fast and Furious, anyone? Pretty strange coincidence how all these mass shootings are happening in lock-step with the push to take away our second amendment rights. It seems that for each loss Obama suffers at the hands of pro-gun-pro-freedom Americans, then suddenly there is a new outbreak of inexplicable mass shootings. I do not believe it is a coincidence ... As I would not put anything past this bunch of Marxist cut throats - including arranging the slaughter of American children, if it gets their agenda approved.

Had he been an American, he might have learned that “... The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” in this country. No “ gun control.” But as a citizen of the world, not sure which one, and of Kenya and Indonesia, he seems to have never learned this most basic fact about USA.

Don’t blame kids killing kids on the Republicans or the NRA Kenya boy! It’s commie liberal ‘RATS like you who gave us this sewer society. Kids aren’t supposed to kill other kids. Kids aren’t supposed to commit suicide. The NRA isn’t causing this. It’s you commies throwing God out of America and turning the kids into terrified sexual deviants who are afraid your “global warming” is going to end the planet tomorrow. YOU COMMIE PIGS ARE CAUSING THIS! For once, take credit for something YOU ACTUALLY CAUSED TO HAPPEN!

Democrats and Obama only bring up the gun issue when whites are killed by other whites. Racists.

I keep wondering about these things too along with the Las Vegas shootings too with the perps supposedly using the Gadsen (Don't Tread on Me) Flag. I've also heard stories about maybe they are the result of MK-ULTRA mind control experiments that supposedly happened from 1948 to 1971. Perhaps some of the perps have been born after 1971 but perhaps something like that continued on secretly. I don't live or die by conspiracy theories but I often wonder about these things since they happen at convenient times.

Dear Barry, more than half the country hates your guts.

And voters in Virginia just sent a “reach across the aisle” RINO on immigration into early retirement.

Just what do you think will happen if you start messing around, commie marxist style, with the 2nd Amendment?

Barak knows that more gun laws would not have prevented any of these attacks.

Barack also knows that HUAC (Hussein’s UnAffordable Care act) was going to limit peoples’ access to their doctors and raise costs (to cover those who get “free” insurance).

Barry lies and uses hysteria to make power grabs.

His end game is no private ownership of guns and a singular government run healthcare system.

He also sees “no” nuclear weapons. He can’t force the other countries to go there but he’s doing his best to take US there. He’s also against new weapons development.

Look at the end game.

Closing Gitmo by 2016 is also in it.

After a career of trampling the Constitution, Obama must think it’s shameful that he can’t obliterate the Second Amendment. That win would give him a whole lot more flexibility for the rest of his agenda.

I will consider their efforts to quash guns only after they can show me one mass shooting case when the assailant was stopped by guilt over any gun law he broke.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention divulged in 2011 that 11 percent of Americans age 12 years and over take antidepressant medication. CDC statistics also revealed a 400-percent increase in the rate of antidepressant use in the United States between 1988 and 2008. As of 2008, antidepressants were the most frequently used drug by persons aged 18-44 years.

The Left wants only the Left to have guns.

They've long had the votes to completely ban citizen gun ownership at the city level, which is where the communists live, but they need to ban guns outside the cities because that's where the anti-communists live.

uring his Tumblr Q&A Tuesday, President Obama hailed Australia’s confiscation of firearms following the 1996 Port Arthur shootings: “Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since. Our levels of gun violence are off the charts.There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this.” The Port Arthur Massacre had Martin Bryant, a 28-year-old from New Town, shoot and kill 35 people and wound 23. Predictably, Obama praised a government that forced its citizens to give up their guns because of a national tragedy. Charles Cooke of National Review summed up the real message behind Obama’s praise of Australia perfectly:

This is a test....what town was this the most famous aussy shooter from?...after which they banned guns?
