Obama won’t be “putting off” gun control

| December 30, 2012

In an interview with the crowd at “Meet the Press” who don’t see a problem with breaking DC gun laws, President Obama will guarantee base Democrat voters that he won’t forsake their agenda, according to the Washington Post;

Obama, who recently established a task force led by Vice President Biden to offer recommendations for how to best curb gun violence, also pushed back against an idea the National Rifle Association put forth following the mass shooting earlier this month at a school in Newtown, Conn. As gun control advocates called for tighter restrictions, the NRA urged that armed guards be placed in schools to deter and defend against future acts of violence.

“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,” Obama said.

Obama reiterated his support for a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines that gun control advocates in Congress have said they will be pushing for.

So much for the “national conversation” we’re supposed to be having. A “national conversation” actually means for those of us who support the constitutional guarantees, that we should sit down and STFU while they preach to us.

I’m not exactly comfortable with the idea that Joe Biden will be dictating our policy to us – you know the guy whose robot-ninja-zombies policy in Afghanistan has done such a bang up job. The guy who thought that we should partition Iraq. The guy who opposed the first Gulf War. The guy who has been absolutely wrong on every single policy issue since he went to the Senate. Now he’s going to interpret the Constitution for us.

So all of you gun owners who didn’t bother to go to the polls last month, I just want to say “thank you”. I’m not sure that Romney would have been much different, but at least he could be bullied. Those of you who think that this can stopped in the House, look at the great job they’ve been doing the last few years holding the line against Obama’s policies. The most we can expect, I suppose, is the spectacle of John Boehner weeping on national TV.

    The ONLY silver lining I do see in obama’s plan is that he did put Joey Moron in charge. What could possibly go wrong with Joey in command?

  2. David says:

    From the Brady viewpoint – last time they put Biden in charge he left too many loopholes” – I suspect they will push to get a modified version of Feinstein’s laundry list and Biden will be left on the sidelines. One can only hope he actually IS in charge; maybe his track record of 100% f*cking up a free lunch will extend further. Unfortunately, this time the anti-gunners smell blood in the water and will try to get everything they can. Expect a ‘debate’ like “We want them all” “You can’t do that” “What are you , a baby-killer?” to occur.

    The SOP for The Big O is called ‘delegating’.

    His hands never ‘touch’ anything except a pen or a sweaty palm from a potential voter. He has a lifetime history of being a slacker and dumping things off on other people, going back to when he was a senior law lecturer at the University of Chicago. He turned the class over to the students. (Newsweek 2008 article)

    His entire career has been built on getting people to do everything for him. Of course he won’t ‘put off’ the gun issue. He’ll ‘put it on’ someone else. If/when it all goes sour, it’ll be Joe ‘BFD’ Biden’s fault.

  4. Flagwaver says:

    Hmm… banning guns will stop crime? I wonder what he thinks about Chicago, New York, and his own D.C?

  5. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    FromClaymore’s link in cmt 4.

    “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,” said Obama.

    Huh? Are there ANY gun owners who think that a guy in the hand of a psychotic is okay? He plays this game well, obama does. And he knows that most of America is stupid enough to blindly follow him. The proof is in last month’s election.

  6. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    a guy? a gun

  7. Claymore says:

    He thinks like most of his ilk: 1) the “bad” guns are flooding in from outside of those cities, 2) bad guns shouldn’t be in the hands of the populace, 3) there is no such thing as a good gun.

  8. Claymore says:

    I wish they would have the guts to just come right out and say what they really want, which is full-on confiscation. Instead, they will puss out and parrot these mildly coded buzz words designed to make pillow biters feel like they’re still supporting the Constitution while openly campaigning to subvert it.

  9. GruntSgt says:

    I keep wondering where he gets this “Vast Majority” of gun owners Bullshit. Maybe the majority that voted for him and they should all line up and turn in their guns along with their man cards.

  10. UpNorth says:

    Hmmm, seems that Chicago passed the 500 mark for murders yesterday. The last time that Chicago passed the 500 mark for murders was in 2008.
    Cause and effect? Obama gets elected in’08, Chicago tops 500 murders, Obama gets re-elected in ’12, Chicago tops 500 murders.
    The beat goes on, in the city with some of the toughest gun control laws in the world.

  11. MAJMike says:

    Only free men can own weapons.

    I will not submit. I aim to misbehave.

  12. Devtun says:

    From John Nolte at Breitbart:

    CNN’s Don Lemon: ‘It Doesn’t Matter if Gun Violence is Down’

    Completely by accident, CNN “journalist” Don Lemon just let the left-wing media cat out of the bag during a ridiculous rant calling for the immediate restriction of our civil rights — even though studies show gun violence has decreased since the easing of gun control laws.

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    And in all this chatter, not one person has even recognized that the demented idiots who engage in these spree shooting rampages are looking for a way to get themselves killed?

    Spengler, the guy who set the trap for the firefighters.

    Adam Lanza, the antisocial misfit, who killed his own mother, then a large group of other people, and finally turned the gun on himself.

    The last bunch of people who went ‘postal’.

    It’s called police-assisted suicide, and it has less to do with access to guns and with killing other people than it does with doing something that will guarantee the cops will take you out.

  14. NHSparky says:

    A armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

    Don’t think the Obama administration isn’t aware of this little tidbit.

  15. The Other Whitey says:

    My father-in-law moved his family here from Cambodia after narrowly escaping Pol Pot’s killing fields. He has told me that in Cambodia he was a peasant, but in America he’s a citizen. He defines the difference as follows: a citizen can defend himself and his family from tyranny. He has been a hardcore conservative ever since they got here, because he doesn’t want his children or grandchildren to suffer the kind of hell he and his wife endured.
    This man has now entrusted me to love, honor, and above all PROTECT his daughter. I cannot do that as a peasant. I can only do that as a WELL-ARMED citizen.
    So no, Glorious Leader–oh sorry, Mister President, I do not accept your arbitrary restrictions on my right to defend my home and family. I don’t care how fancy you dress it up. History teaches us that disarmament is invariably followed by tyranny. Oh, I forgot, you’re too busy rewriting history to fit Saul Alinsky, Howard Zinn, and Michael Moore’s bullshit ideology. After all, it’s for the “Greater Good,” right?

  16. jordan says:

    Ha. This brings to mind Reagan’s farewell speech from the Oval Office, where he recounted an incident a U.S. sailor told him about standing watch aboard ship in the E. Pacific when a pitiful boat loaded with escaping South Vietnamese came into view.

    They pulled alongside, and one of the Vietnamese men waved at the sailor, yelling “Hello, American! Hello, Freedom Man!”

  17. Just Plain Jason says:

    Hey I remember a bunch of Obama voters telling me he wasn’t anti gun. Wow, it is like that totally flipped as soon as he got his second term.

  18. USMCE8Ret says:

    What this administration fails to understand and simply cannot grasp is that this nation wasn’t founded on a system that was meant to adapt to a changing world – it’s the other way around.

  19. The Other Whitey says:

    Love the “Firefly” reference! Some of Mal’s other very applicable gems from that show include

    “Alliance unites all the worlds under one rule, so everybody can be ignored or interfered with equally.”

    “Someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill ’em right back!”

    “Ain’t nothin’ more dangerous than a bad man what thinks he’s right with God.”

    And the very greatest…
    Operative: “Are you willing to die for your belief, Captain?”
    Mal: “Yes.”
    [Mal draws his sidearm & shoots the Operative, who is wearing armor]
    “‘Course that ain’t exactly Plan-A.”

    No wonder they took it off the air. Can’t have such a relevant show on TV to give people any ideas about not being good little peons!

  20. Kid says:

    “more guns in schools” There aren’t any, that’s the problem.

    4 years of hype, BS and lies, 4 more comin.

  21. B Woodman says:

    No matter how much lipstick you put on the gun control pig, in the end (middle and front), it’s still a pig.

  22. Detn8r says:

    My question is, “How far will the American people go before this either blows up in their face or blows up in the administrations face?” I absolutely support the Constitution of The UNITED STATES and the Bill of Rights. My fear is that I will be among a very few standing a line and my family will pay for that stance. My family understands my beliefs and will support them, but at what cost, without the support of like minded citizens?

    This may sound extreme, but, it really rides on my mind, as I know what I will do to protect the ideas of my fore fathers and my country. This administration scares the shit out of me in what they are going to force on the nation. Will we have the balls and back bone to stop it?

  23. Old Trooper says:

    Well, with all the examples of Obama just going around congress to do what he wants, it wouldn’t surprise me if he just issues another executive order to bypass them, once again.

  24. Ex-PH2 says:

    And this just in from the morning news: the last-ditch business on the ‘fiscal cliff’ has resulted in an agreement to lift the income level on tax increases to $400,000.

    Anyone here quailify for a tax increase?

    The cliff still looms ahead of us. It will loom large in the legend of the current administration.

  25. obsidian says:

    No and those who are not amused by gun control are not putting off their agenda either.
    Without the SCOTUS or the republican’s backing the constitution and bill of rights the agenda will proceed as fast as Obama does.

  26. NHSparky says:

    PH2–no, don’t qualify for that, but you can bet your butt that a lot of small businesses do, and that this is going to hit THEM and their employees.

    I swear to Christ, this government is as useful as a football bat.
