Well, You Can Keep Your Guns

(Might want to tap the brakes on that threat.)

The fact sheet for the list of the President's Executive Orders is here. Nothing significant jumps out at me.

But he wants Congress to pass the following legislation:

Require criminal background checks for all gun sales. (a.k.a. closing the "gun show loophole.")
Reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban.
Restore the 10-round limit on ammunition magazines.
Protect police by finishing the job of getting rid of armor-piercing bullets.
Give law enforcement additional tools to prevent and prosecute gun crime.
End the freeze on gun violence research.
Make our schools safer with more school resource officers and school counselors, safer climates, and better emergency response plans.
Help ensure that young people get the mental health treatment they need.
Ensure health insurance plans cover mental health benefits.

Obama, what a dim-witted Lib-tard snake. He wants to require criminal background checks for all gun sales. How Anti-American! Socialist!

Doesn't he understand that the 2nd Amendment guarantees that ALL American citizens can have guns without any limits whatsoever.

Hitler! Impeach!

Nothing about violent video games and violent movies. Take the video game playing psycho's guns and they will build bombs out of stuff most people have in their kitchens.

Safer climates at schools?

#16 is interesting. "Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes."

The Act does prevent patients from having to answer. Also, no records can be kept documenting their answer.

I guess Pelosi will have to read the bill to see what's in it.

Make our schools safer with more school resource officers

Liberal bedwetters slammed Wayne LaPierre for suggesting this. School resource officers = armed guards.

So the country is F'n broke! and he wants to focus $500 million on crap like this instead of fixing the economy????????????????????

11:47 you are an idiot if you think other's believed he was going to take away our guns today.

Taking away rights and freedoms happens in stages. What Obammy did today is one of those stages.

I won't feel sorry for a liberal weenie that doesn't own a gun for his protection when someone breaks into their house and he relies on the police to protect him. He will wish he had a 30 round clip.

Armor piercing bullets? You mean like any type of ammo you would use to hunt deer. It would be nice if the anti freedom people had any idea what they were talking about. Clips. High capacity bullets, the shoulder thing that goes up. And the rest of that o so scary stuff.

It's not the psychotic doing the mass killings, it's the guy with a plan for destruction. No psych professional would ever detect anything wrong with the guy. Of course, a psychotic that might push someone in front of a subway train, might be detected as psychotic, but everyone already knows that.

Well I guess some of us over reacted so excuse me if I'm a little over defending of the 2nd amendment

1:15,

Yea, because there's people breaking into houses all the fucking time, right? Especially in Wise County, where everybody is just so "godly" that break-ins happen all the time. You're probably one of the dumbasses that actually believe the gov't is behind Gifford's shootings
, Aurora, & Newtown.

The dirtiest political trick I have ever seen is to use children to advance your agenda. Obama is truly a power hungry, sick individual. Their bodies were barely cold before he was making his pitch to gut the 2nd amendment.

2:01, My house has been hit once and an outbuilding once. Luckily for them I wasn't home.

Looks like The Devil is still stupid...

Exactly how would any of those orders make us safer? Only law abiding citizens will obey the law. Criminals have never minded what the law said.

All this does is make the law abiding citizen less protected.

Pie in the sky.

Good job Mr. President. You had and have my vote!

Part of a song by Roger Creager pretty much sums up all this.

This country's headed south, way to fast
Politicians up there kissing ***
Taking away our freedoms, I guess they don't think we need em
I for one, refuse to cave in.

2:01, Do us a favor and show us how fearless you are and post a GUN FREE HOME sign in your yard and leave your doors and windows unlocked.

2:28 Exactly what in this executive order keeps you from keeping your gun. When 40% of guns are currently purchased via gun shows without registration then while it will not eliminate murders by any means it will provide some narrowing of who can own a gun. You register your car, your house, hell you register your kid to go to college, you really can't register your weston?

"...The motive behind this polarization, where the public is to be led to believe that these strong arm tactics are necessary, is the same motive that fuels the New World Order movement - control. As the pole shift approaches, panic and riot will increase due to food shortages but also to alarming weather extremes and earthquakes and volcanism that increase in intensity steadily.

Those in the establishment, who have planned for their own security and sustenance, want to be protected from this panic and the demands of frightened people. Strong arm tactics, media suppression, and martial law are all cards in the deck of the New World Order crowd which they hope to be able to play." Source: zetatalk

2:18, Care to make a point? People that throw around drivel like that are just looking for someone else to do their bidding. What's wrong, trouble articulating a point, so you just resort to name calling....typical liberal tactic.

Sex offenders have to register too... I missed the part where exercising a constitutional right made me a criminal. Makes me glad I overpaid for 2000 rounds this weekend.

Oh and it's WESSON.

God Bless our President.

And thank God we elected him instead of the robot.

Maybe if he beefs up mental health care in America enough, you'll get fewer comments like most of those above.

But I doubt it.

I will be glad to have a 30 round magazine if people were to break in. I might need that ammo. One cant ever predict the way a situation will go down.

Ok 11:28, 12:56, 1:15, the Devil et al; Explain this to me:

1)If the the limitations of owning large capacity clips and military style firearms is such an attack on your 2nd Amendment rights, why haven't you and the likes of you been marching in the streets for the past 80 years complaining because you can't walk down that street with a Thompson submachine gun over your arm (and don't start that fully auto vs. semiauto crap), and
2) How can you and the likes of you constantly involk the name of RONALD REAGAN for leadership and sanity in gov't. when he was the guy who originally pushed the Brady Bill (virtually the same limiations Obama is proposing)?
YOUR NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF TWO-FACED CRYBABABIES BECAUSE SOMEONE WHOM YOU DON'T LIKE STOOD UP AND SAID "ENOUGH, YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT ANYMORE!"

Anonymous said...

And 3:43 you just demonstrated your ignorance of gun show sales. 40 percent really? You only know what your liberal masters at MSNBC tell you DUMBASS!,,

1. It is about the big picture bud, not just magazine size or semi-auto weapons. It is the beginning of a anti-gun policy that will ramp up in years to come. Many more issues with his use of EO. Do you want your Dr asking about your firearms? Does that sound like freedom to you? Oh, and I'm not 80.

2. Name one occasion where I have invoked Ronald Reagan in any discussion on here. The Brady Bill was a colossal mistake and outright shitty legislation, but at least Reagan got capped so he didn't need to use children as a shield unlike your messiah.

I would be all for Obama if he would go after the true cause of these shootings. He took the easy route and chose to blame guns to grind his political foes. These EO's will not save a single life. A leader unites...Obama's true colors are shining bright. What freedoms will he go after next? It would have been less offensive if he just pissed on all 26 graves.

I agree, 6:10.

And what's the deal about the children with the President to make a point? Are you guys seriously trying to say that hasn't happened many, many times. This one particularly seems to fit the situation.
You guys are really reaching - for anything. Forget about the facts.
