Obama vows to pursue gun control ‘with or without Congress’
The Daily Caller ^ | 1/28/2014 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 01/29/2014 7:51:04 AM PST by rktman

President Obama vowed on Tuesday night to pursue gun control “with or without Congress.”

In his State of the Union address, Obama referenced recent mass shootings and called for new gun laws. In the aftermath of mass shootings over the last several years, Obama and Democrats have unsuccessfully pushed for new gun control measures.

“Citizenship means standing up for the lives that gun violence steals from us each day,” Obama said.

Uh, no. Citizenship means standing up to those that would attempt to deprive us of our rights. I seem to recall that the "lyin' king" already told nanniebloomer's MAIGgots/MLFALA(Moms Lookin' For A Little Action)/the brady bunch/mark and gabby puppet show/vpc or some such anti-rights group group they are working under the radar to strip law abiding citizens of their rights. Odd that there was only the single mention during the mistake of the union address.

The American people want a roll-back of the already excessive regulation on firearms.

But then, Hussein has seen the American people as his enemy from the start.

Some of the people with guns are wolves. Some of them are sheep dogs, just trying to defend the flock. The President refuses to see the difference because it does not fit his agenda.

Plus, the Supreme Court has already handed down a decision that stated that it is NOT the police Department’s job to protect individual citizens even when that failure results in a child’s death.

Wonder if we can sue various police departments for false advertising when their cars display “Protect and Serve”?

The Tea Party took back the US House of Representatives from the socialist in 2010 for the specific purpose of providing a road block to the Obama communist administration!

While the House is working to stop “some” of Obumbum's communist agenda, this is exactly what the American people voted for in 2010!

To have a sitting communist dictator in chief publicly proclaim he will go around a sitting US congress in order to push [his] agenda is in itself “sedition” and the US House of Representatives are coequal members of congress who should immediately declare any presidential proclamations or executive orders are NOT to be followed and no federal agents can assist in the implementation of same!

This of course will never happen with existing RINO’s in power!

“Obama forgets that policeman will never protect you. They protect no one. That’s not their job.”

. . . but, the police are being militarized by the Freddy's who will use them to subdue and eliminate with extreme prejudice any “resisters” to the implementation of communism in the United States!

You are 100% correct, the police are not your friends and will kill you if you display a firearm, just ask anyone in Northern Michigan where two (2) people have been shot and killed by first the Michigan State Police who claimed he pointed a firearm at him (on his private property) and the second was murdered by a “first responder” who also claims the person pointed a firearm at him on his own private property and in his private home at 3:00 am!

The police better remember that a firearm is a double edge sword that can cut both ways!

Gun prosecutions under Obama down more than 45 percent

Despite his calls for greater gun control, including a new assault weapons ban that extends to handguns, President Obama’s administration has turned away from enforcing gun laws, cutting weapons prosecutions some 40 percent since a high of about 11,000 under former President Bush.

Unless it means shutting down the government! That the RINO’s will never do and they make sure Obumbum knows that when ever a threat to reduce the size of government comes up or defunding Obumbum care, which in turns means, the RINO’s have lost the deal before it even begins!

There was a thread here on FR about ten days ago which mentioned the Connecticut “authorities” who were miffed because only 4% of citizens registered their so-called “assault” weapons.

If this is true, that’s good news....it means 96% of Connecticut gun owners won’t be bullied by the gun grabbers.

Big surprise. After the way Obama tried to shove his gun-control agenda through Congress a year ago only to get completely crushed in April, it would seem obvious he's not going to try to convince them this year.

So he will rule by diktat, with more 'the kings word is law' (aka 'exectutive orders'), and, as they have already demonstrated, Congress will sit on its thumbs, paralyzed with fear of being labeled 'racist', thereby nullifying any 'checks and balances', and the country burns.

Republican does not mean “conservative” and that is what confuses so many Americans.

Most Republicans are Republican in Name Only (RINO) where they are not conservative at all and in fact are more sympathetic to liberal Democratic principles than they are conservative principles. These Republicans then hide their true political principles from the public who normally vote Republican expecting a “conservative” who in the end is deflated when they learn the candidate they voted for is nothing different from the liberal he or she marches across the isle to kiss, swap spit with and pat on the rear-end to get along to go along!

This is why this government is currently out of control! The RINO’s are trying to pay back the American people who stayed home and did not vote for their precious RINO Romney and are now trying to tee up more RINO’s for 2016, e.g. Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, etc.

The Oregon Legislature run by liberal Democrats, is set to pass draconian gun-control laws and bans against owning fire-arms in Oregon.Sen.Kruse,R., of Oregon, has almost given up,and sees no hope to stop this from happening.What we Oregonians who want to keep our firearms need, is out- of- state powerful Republican help and publicity to deter this.Our Oregon republicans can’t do it.

Any big powerful,republican and/or conservative, or/and Tea Party help ,including national republican celebrities,leaders,Fox News, ect., who could give this national publicity, and help us stop this from happening, is welcome to Oregon, to help us.Also, if the national NRA Branch could get us national publicity, and ANY POWER-PULL we would be so GRATEFUL!!

We Oregonians hunt and fish,and rely on home fire-arms for defense because of our high property-crime rate; and high assault,rape,burglary, and home-invasion rate.
