  • Obama calls for gun control action and DOESN'T link Orlando terror attack to Islam

    06/12/2016 1:02:42 PM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 48 replies ^ | 06/12/2016 | Political Reporter For
    President Obama furthered his gun control message today when addressing the massacre in Orlando that killed 50 people, making it the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. 'Although it's still early in the investigation we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate,' Obama said, making no reference to ISIS or Islamic terror in his brief remarks. Obama called the shooting spree, at the gay nightclub Pulse during Pride month in the United States, a reminder of how easy it is for someone to get a hold of a weapon that could...
  • Doctors can report some mentally ill patients to FBI under new gun control rule

    Politico ^ | January 4th, 2016 | By David Pittman
    Delivering on its promise to deliver "common sense" gun control, the Obama administration on Monday finalized a rule that enables health care providers to report the names of mentally ill patients to an FBI firearms background check system. The action was one of a series of steps that President Barack Obama had called for in January 2013 in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings to curb gun violence, but the rule was not published until today. While the 1993 Brady law prohibits gun ownership by individuals who have been involuntarily committed, found incompetent to stand trial or otherwise deemed...
  • Obama’s Executive Gun Control: No Minimum Before Private Gun Sales Require Background Checks

    01/04/2016 8:47:29 PM PST · by servo1969 · 138 replies ^ | 1-4-2015 | AWR Hawkins
    Full title: Obama's Executive Gun Control: No Minimum Threshold Before Private Gun Sales Require Background Checks On January 4, the White House released a fact sheet which previews the executive gun control Obama will announce Tuesday, and it reveals there is no numerical threshold of sales that a private seller has to cross before being considered "engaged in the business of dealing in firearms."In other words, previous hints that there would be a "trigger"--a certain number of guns that a private seller had to sell before being considered "engaged in the business"--are now out the window. Figures like those reported...

    President Barack Obama wept openly Tuesday as he delivered a forceful defense of new executive actions on gun violence, a set of modest proposals to tighten loopholes that likely face quick legal challenges and could be vulnerable to reversal by a Republican White House. The president ran through a list of mass shootings that have happened during his time in office, and teared up as he recalled the schoolchildren gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012. "First graders in Newtown. First graders," Obama said, pausing to collect himself. "Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad. And...
  • Phony Fascist Tears: Obama Cries During Gun Control Speech

    Obama wiped away tears from his face about five different times during his speech, pausing frequently to add more emotion and gravity to the event. He also deviated several times from his prepared remarks to add more feeling to the text. Members of Obama’s staff were also wiping away tears as the president spoke as members of Congress sat silently in the room. Senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Health and Human Secretary Sylvia Burwell, and FBI directer James Comey attended the speech.

    "The Department of Justice is planning to finalize a proposed rule to amend the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) regarding the making or transferring of a firearm under the National Firearms Act. As proposed, the rule would; (1) add a definition for the term "responsible person"; (2) require each responsible person of a corporation, trust or legal entity to complete a specified form, and to submit photographs and fingerprints; and (3) modify the requirements regarding the certificate of the chief law enforcement officer (CLEO)".

    President Obama‘s press secretary cited “30,000 gun deaths in America” as the reason his boss should end-run Congress to implement new gun controls–but he omitted a key fact. Press Secretary Josh Earnest answered a reporter’s question if there was any opposition to the president’s plan to take executive action to close a so-called “gun show loophole” while making private gun sales more difficult for citizens. Looking down at his talking points, he started reeling off statistics about gun deaths, police shot, and other violent crimes committed with guns. But he missed the part where 20,000 of those gun deaths were by...

    Washington Post ^ | January 5 at 11:43 AM | By Jonathan H. Adler
    .... snip.... .... Taken at face value, the new ATF guidance is thus nothing more than a restatement of existing legal requirements. It merely identifies those who are already subject to the relevant federal requirements and does not in any way expand the universe of those gun sellers who are required to obtain a license and perform background checks. In other words, it is -- as the document says -- a guidance, and not a substantive rule. It has no legal effect. If the ATF guidelines are nothing more than a guidance -- an indication of the sorts of things...

    ....Mostly For the last few weeks, gun owners and constitutionalists have been wringing their hands, worried that Obama’s executive orders would implement the left-wing wish list of gun control tropes. We heard he was going to ban “large capacity” magazines, or limit sales of so-called “assault weapons.” There were also rumors that he was going to unilaterally strip 2nd Amendment rights based on nebulous watchlists. Two days ago, when he said his orders would be entirely consistent with the Constitution, he tipped his hand. He was going to do none of that. For the most part, what he did do...

Obama called it a sad irony that after a shooting happens the purchase of guns and ammunition go up. "And some of you who are watching certain television stations or listening to certain radio programs," Obama began, "Please do not believe this notion

Any visit by President would be a campaign stop for agenda to take away American citizens right to own firearms said Jaques in an exclusive interview.

    If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has his way the United Nations will be able to say if Americans are allowed to have their Second Amendment rights. He has just signed an anti-gun treaty with the United Nations that the U.S. Senate has already said it is against. The treaty Kerry signed without authorization from the Senate would create an un-Constitutional registry of all US gun buyers and would lead to the UN controlling Americans gun rights.

    Obama has famously (infamously?) long been enamored of the idea of fundamentally transforming America, and one of the foundational aspects of American culture that he has in his sights is the Second Amendment and Americans’ firmly held belief in their right to keep and bear arms.His former attorney general, Eric Holder, went so far as to proclaim—back in the 1990’s—that “we really need to brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”At least he understood that it’s the American people who resist infringement of this right. The administration has tried to pass gun control legislation, most notably...
