Let’s preface this appropriately by a quote from Sportsmen for Obama:
President Obama supports the rights of gun owners as guaranteed under the Second Amendment, and believes that the Constitution guarantees an individual’s right to bear arms.
Today from The Hill, as quoted on Meet The Lawbreaking Press:
President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.
The president is putting his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms. Contrast that with what the Constitution says: the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Now read the full weight quote again. This president is violating his oath of office as much as if he said he were putting his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on free speech.
“I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”
Disarming the innocent does nothing to change anything. But again, this isn’t about guns, it’s ultimately about control.
But he has also called on Congress to move quickly to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines.
I’ve addressed “Why High Capacity Magazines” just recently, but to touch on it in the shortest way possible, would you end up the victim of a home invasion robbery by five guys, would you rather have 6 rounds, 10 rounds, or 30 rounds?
“I’ve been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” the president said.
And banning handguns, and all guns that don’t belong to his government. Yeah, we know. “Shall not be infringed” means “a ban, banning these other things, background checks to exercise a right are all things I have historically supported.” Yes, his oath of office is as meaningless now as it was when he was an Illinois senator.
“I’d like to get it done in the first year. I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden’s task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off.”
Translation: “I have to do this before people catch on to it and realize it’s a feel-good measure that does nothing but expand government power. I put Joe Biden in charge because he’s a mindless ideologue who doesn’t care about facts, and doesn’t listen to the other side, and can be trusted to ram this crap through and f*** the citizen back into the serf they should be.”
“I am not going to prejudge the recommendations that are given to me. I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem,” he said.
We joke sometimes about how Malia’s getting to the age now, and boys start calling and, you know, sort of, I always talk about how one of the main incentives for running again was continuing Secret Service protection to have men with guns around at all times
It’s not really a joke, though.
And the president who sent thousands of guns to narcoterrorist cartels to kill our Mexican neighbors then goes on:
“I think there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can’t have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high-capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids,” Obama said.
Of course, the leftist-logic solution to this is…
And of course, with regards to this statement:
“I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools,” Obama said. “And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem.”
David Gregory, who interviewed him, and is a gun law breaker himself, has kids who go to school with Obama’s kids. And they have 11 armed guards at the school. The rest of you, the little people, don’t need your kids protected. Guns are bad, m’kay, while the President and David “High Capacity Stupid” Gregory, have a squad of armed security who specialize in CQB.
Because now, as it was for the thousands of years of human civilization before the American experiment began, laws are once again for you, not for the elites. Welcome back to serfdom.
The Founders disagreed vehemently.
