Reality Conflicts with Obama’s Gun Control “Mandate”

Obama BidenPresident Obama has a nasty habit of falsely believing that since he was elected by the people, the people, therefore, are supportive of whatever the hell he wants to do. He’s said raising taxes is his “mandate” from the people. Now, he’s boldly claiming that Americans agree on his positions on gun control.

There’s only one problem: Americans obviously don’t.

If he would step out of his bubble once in awhile, instead of only discussing issues with “friendly” news sources or the folks at The View, he might be shocked to find that in many parts of America, he’s not the most popular figure. Furthermore, his stances on gun control are not looked up with delight by those “bitter” individuals who “cling to guns and religion.”

At a press conference on Tuesday, as he appointed “Slow” Joe Biden as the head of his task force against gun violence, he mentioned,

“The good news is there’s already a growing consensus for us to build from.  A majority of Americans support banning the sale of military-style assault weapons.  A majority of Americans support banning the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips.  A majority of Americans support laws requiring background checks before all gun purchases, so that criminals can’t take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won’t take the responsibility of doing a background check at all.”

However, the majority of Americans advocate better attention paid to mental health and the arming of citizens as better solutions to gun violence. Just sayin’ it don’t make it so, Barry.

He went on:

“Look, like the majority of Americans, I believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms.  This country has a strong tradition of gun ownership that’s been handed down from generation to generation.  Obviously across the country there are regional differences.  There are differences between how people feel in urban areas and rural areas.  And the fact is the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible — they buy their guns legally and they use them safely, whether for hunting or sport shooting, collection or protection.”

I love it when liberals try to find common ground by saying, “I believe in the right to bear arms. But…” There is no “but…”! It’s like saying, “I believe in the freedom of speech… So long as it is run by me and approved beforehand.”

The words, “Shall not be infringed,” mean exactly that. We cannot have a discussion where liberal leaders look to cherry-pick what part of the Second Amendment they’re okay with. “I’m okay with the right to bear arms, but only the ones that I feel are okay.”

On a side note: It’s odd that liberals started looking at the Second Amendment as an individual right at about the same time as the Supreme Court said it was.

Obama continued,

“But you know what, I am also betting that the majority — the vast majority — of responsible, law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war.  I’m willing to bet that they don’t think that using a gun and using common sense are incompatible ideas — that an unbalanced man shouldn’t be able to get his hands on a military-style assault rifle so easily; that in this age of technology, we should be able to check someone’s criminal records before he or she can check out at a gun show; that if we work harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one in Newtown — or any of the lesser-known tragedies that visit small towns and big cities all across America every day.”

Wrong again. While Obama feeds his own delusion that everyone agrees with him, America has been arming itself. Guns are flying off the shelves at a record pace- yes, even those “scary military-style rifles”- and as America is embroiled in discussion of possible looming gun control measures, the National Rifle Association has seen new member enrollment in excess of 8,000 per day, every day since the shooting in Sandy Hook.

So, if I were Obama, I would start looking for an exit strategy on this “gun control mandate” he says exists. And I think appointing the halfwit vice president to a do-nothing task force might just be exactly that.

    In the last 5 years there have been record gun sales all over the country, knowing that obama would try to dissolve our Second Amendment. The media continues to falsely report and from what I read everyday…We The People are not going to stand for anymore assaults on our Constitution. Biden is wasting his time…it is NOT going to happen. Below are some facts and figures for you showing violent crimes in other countries. IF you notice, many of the countries with strong gun controls.
    1. U. K. – 2,034 per 100 K residents.
    2. Austria – 1,677 violent crimes per 100 K residents.
    3. South Africa – 1,609 per 100 K residents.
    4. Sweden – 1,123 violent crimes per 100 K residents.
    5. Belgium – 1,006 violent crimes per 100 K residents.
    6. Canada – 935 per 100 K.
    7. Finland – 738 violent crimes per 100 K residents.
    8. United States – 386 violent crimes per 100 K.
    And are you aware there are MORE people die from Medical mistakes and diagnosis than there are from being killed by a gun (in the United States)?

    THAT IS ALL SO VERY TRUE…I HEARD THIS MORNING A REPORTER SAY,”WHY SHOULD OUR MONEY BE MORE PROTECTED THAN OUR CHILDREN?”…HAD TO THINK ABOUT THAT JUST ONE MINUTE BEFORE I TOTALLY AGREED…THESE MONEY TRUCKS CARRYING BIG MONEY ARE ARMED TO THE HILT…AREN’T OUR CHILDREN MORE PRECIOUS THAT THE BIG BUCKS?

  5. Mike Rutt says:

    You are right on and god bless you thanks for speaking the truth!

  6. John says:

    The president Of this country took an oath to uphold the constitution and that includes the second amendment. If he wishes to change it he should put forth an amendment to repeal the second amendment, let the people vote on it, and if he loses he should resign because he can’t support it. No one should hold public office if they cannot support the constitution. All of it! Not just the parts you like. Our rights cannot depend on every one using them responsibly. If that were to be the case, no one would have any rights.

    As a nation, the US is at a most profound crossroads – our nation has not been this polarized since reconstruction, and the divide between conservatives and socialists is now so wide as to prevent any rational dialogue at all. Not that I believe any further dialogue is necessary or advised on the topics of massive and unconstitutional government intrusions into healthcare, “gun control”, peoples’ incomes, etc.

    A large and growing number of honest, law-abiding Americans are clearly saying, “No More” on these issues, and with good reason. If the socialists push much harder, then I believe we will see violent attacks from people on one or both extremes of the political spectrum, against those they perceive to be “the biggest threats” to their radical ideals. Once it starts, it will prpbably escalate quickly, and that is a horifying possibility – because it will most harm (and anger) those of us who are responsible, well regulated, and trying to keep our country peaceful and dignified, without surrendering any more of our God-given rights.

    You political “activists” do remember us, right? We’re the quiet, responsible folks “in the middle” who compose ~45% of the US population – those who have to go to work every day, care for and protect our families, keep society running, and all that other non-exciting stuff.

    Yeah, I’m saying that the radical wackos on *both* ends of the spectrum disgust me with the war they are clearly trying to start – and should they succeed in starting a war/riot/crime-spree in my town, they *will* get shot, because those of us who pay the bills and keep it all running are not giving any more free rides. We are sick and tired of the lunatic fringe in our midst, and our tolerance has all but been worn through. In short, the lunatic fringe has done only one good thing for our nation – they have stimulated a serious re-evaluation of what our founders meant by “being necessary to the security of a free state” by those of us enjying our right to keep and bear arms. Defense does, indeed, go beyond the home. “The Militia” is not the National Guard; in any given town, “the militia” is all of those responsible adults who live and/or work there, and all of that town falls under the militia’s purvue.

    Our communities have an immune system which our founders knew as “the militia”. That immune system is “organic”, not organizational – it is regulated *only* by our God-given conscience and, if need be, asserted by our God-given right to bear arms in defense of our homes, communities, churches, and schools. It is not and cannot be regulated, curtailed, registered, tracked, or otherwise infringed by any government agency. That is the true and complete meaning of the 2nd ammendment, both in spirit and in word. The 2nd Ammendment, as with the rest of the BoR, is absolute and non-negotiable.

    In short, we don’t care who you are – keep your hands, your laws, your protests, and your filthy marxist ideals off of our government, our kids, our churches, and our guns, or else we will be forced to make things very interesting for you… terminally interesting if circumstances make it necessary.
