Skip to comments.Obama says America ‘should be ashamed’ of its gun laws\ (2md Amendment trashing)

Calling the failure to pass gun-control laws the biggest frustration of his time in office, President Obama on Tuesday said America should be ashamed of its gun laws, decried the type of violence seen again Tuesday at an Oregon school, and praised a country that more or less banned all long guns.
Speaking to Tumblr founder David Karp, Mr. Obama said the U.S. does not conform to the rest of the advanced, developed world when it comes to gun laws, resurrecting his plea for restrictions on the sale of firearms. He also disputed the notion that mental illness is solely to blame, saying other nations do not experience mass shootings and the U.S. doesnt have a monopoly on crazy people.
My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage. Were the only developed country on earth where this happens. And it happens now once a week. And its a one-day story. Theres no place else like this, the president said.
He then went on to praise a country that had outright banned and imposed a mandatory buyback on almost all long guns, including semi-automatic weapons and shotguns.
A couple of decades ago Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown, and Australia just said, Well, thats it. Were not doing were not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they havent had a mass shooting since. I mean, our levels of gun violence are off the charts. Theres no other advanced, developed country on earth that would put up with this, he said.

America should be (IS) ashamed of odumbo!
Obama should have been removed the 3rd day into his first term.
King Obama says: Your rules don’t apply to me. I AM GOD.
I'm ashamed of the worthless POS bastard usurper in the White House!
I have no intent to be obedient to Obamalaw.
:: saying other nations do not experience mass shootings ::
Seems to me there was a Norwegian resort-town with dozens dead recently, at the hands of a “crazy” person.
Oh, he used a gun.
well, I am ashamed of what passes for a _resident. And I am ashamed of those majority of my countrymen who saddled us with this filth.
Nope. Anders Breivik was Norwegian.
Mr. Obama said the U.S. does not conform to the rest of the advanced, developed world when it comes to gun laws....
People come here from somewhere else to get away from their former nation's BS. It's why we're special. We're the last stop. Wish we had a leader who believed that, too.
I guess this means we should be ashamed of our Founders and of the Constitution they wrote.
its a set up. I cant carry weapons in certain situations, due to draconian laws...those who would commit mayhem are not bound by such laws, ergo, many people get killed in a situation that an armed citizen could have stopped early.
I guess that means Michelle shouldn’t be proud of her country anymore.
America is involved in the Law of Conversation of Shame.
There is just so much shame to go around and it is presently concentrated as being ashamed of our treacherous but worthless incompetent president
I’m ashamed of all the chatter about our Pres. and no one in congress does anything to shut his destruction of the USA down.
I agree with that part of his preaching.
All gun laws should be rescinded as unconstitutional!
I agree. America should be ashamed for having over 20,000 anti-gun laws on the books, seeing that such laws only make victims sitting ducks, and proposing more laws.
Einstein said that the definition of insanity is to repeat a process while expecting different results.
In proposing the same lame solutions that have not worked yet, and have even increased unnecessary deaths, 0bama0 is either insane or evil or both.
Remember Biden mocking people for thinking Pres—ent Scumbag would take away their guns? “Obama won’t take away your guns” is as much a lie as “If you like your health plan, you can keep it.” Taking away guns ... it’s what dictators do.
>>My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage.
OK. Let’s do that.
So how do we disarm blacks (who commit most gun crimes) and crazy white people (who commit almost all mass shootings) without keeping guns out of the hands of good, law-abiding people who don’t want to be victims of the first two groups?
Won’t the black lobby and crazy people lobby (i.e. teachers and other democrats) complain about this?
Don’t forget Brazil, which has much stricter gun laws than the US, and half the population of the US, and twice as many murders using a firearm than the US.
>>said America should be ashamed
When someone says “you should be ashamed” to a drug addict, welfare sow, career criminal, gang banger, or a teenager who dresses like a whore, the Democrats say, “you can’t judge them”.
Why is Obama judging America now? Where is the liberal “tolerance”? </sarc>
He is not just advocating sole restrictions here, he is advocating confiscation, as in Australia.
What we are ashamed and embarrassed about has nothing to do with gun laws.......................
I had a discussion with a fellow gun enthusiast from the UK some time ago about how easily Brits surrendered their gun rights.
He pointed out that British are “subjects” not “citizens” a well entrenched and persistent cultural difference that plays a profound and different (from the US) role in how they see their place in society relative to their government.
The Aussies, and Canadians too, spring from this tradition. Obama’s either ignorantly making an apples/oranges comparison, or deliberately lamenting his inability to rule as a king. I’m thinking it’s the latter ...
Obama should be ashamed of his disrespect for America, the greatest country on the planet....and he wants to destroy it. Wow, what a fool!
Meanwhile, children have grown up with mind-altering "meds" as they spend days and nights in school and out staring at tech screens. Many under these conditions have never and perhaps will never develop adult abilities to distinguish fantasy from reality. People now feel they need their guns to protect themselves from this zombie element in our popultation.
Obama wants to make things better? Caging children from Central America instead of sending them back to their homes and communities does not send that messagge. Arming Syrians to kill Christians and Ukranians to kill Ukranians is not the way to go.
The guns are the effect, not the cause. The violence is spillover from our out-of-control excuse for civilization.
Buy more ammo and if you’re thinking about that nice, new piece, the answer should be “YES”...
Well, he and Michelle have always been ashamed of America - what’s new?
Let’s play “Complete the Obama Syllogism”:
Chicago has Draconian gun laws
Chicago has an extremely high murder rate
Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens.
Is that the same as being ashamed of the Constitution, its authors, its spirit, ashamed of the selflessly courageous and duty-bound colonials who threw off hereditary, dynastic rule and ashamed of every single American soldier from that time to this who bled and died to defend American sovereignty?
Whenever liberal-inspired violence ensues, it is usually a matter of seconds before they(liberals) start crying for gun control. Almost inevitably some nihilistic “selfie” goes off his meds, steals a gun, commits demonic-inspired atrocities in a “gun-free” zone. What most democrats and liberals are preaching is the total confiscation of 300-600 million guns in the hands of American citizens, so they can control us like all fascists.
He's right. 100% correct.
NFA '34? Utterly shameful. The very idea of restricting and taxing American Citizens' access to effective militia weapons is an outrage. It should be repealed (or declared unconstitutional) posthaste.
GCA '68? Modeled on the laws of the Third Reich, of all horrendous things ... an American Citizen should not be restricted as to what State he can buy weapons in.
FOPA '86??? The absolute ban on American Citizens obtaining newly manufactured effective militia weapons is outright tyranny.
The plethora of laws restricting the bearing of arms are yet another shameful outrage.
The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
And yet it is. Repeatedly and extensively.
Yes, we should be ashamed of this ... and outraged by it ... and determined to overturn all of it.
We should be. About 90% of them, if not more, are blatant violations of the 2nd Amendment and its intent.
Another unpatriotic whine from this nauseating cry baby. The guns will be here long after he’s gone. Live with it, Leftists.
What he doesn’t count are the mass shootings of citizens by the governments with strong gun control laws.
How about any politician who lies should be removed from office.
“...the biggest frustration of his time in office...”
EVERYTHING’S frustrating for a would-be emperor who doesn’t believe in the sanctity of the constitution.
I’m ashamed we’ve got a lowlife, scumbag Marxist dictator ruling over this country. FUBO!!!
The president claims to be a “constitutional scholar”. If he doesn’t like the second amendment he should propose and lobby for an amendment to modify the language of the second amendment or repeal it entirely. We can have a national debate. He and the teleprompter can go on the road campaigning for his amendment. Let the people direct their elected representatives how to vote and put this issue to bed once and for all.
He doesn’t do this because he knows an amendment cannot pass the House and likely would not pass the Senate, much less the state legislatures. For this reason, it would be good politics for the NRA and others to demand he put up (i.e. propose and amendment) or shut up.
