Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

We regulate alcohol.
No one expects to eliminate gun violence by regulating guns. We hope to reduce it.
For example, grain alcohol is banned for sales in liquor stores in many states & well controlled in others. Why is that?
guns are regulated, I never had to get a background check or a permit to buy a beer. As for reducing crime , look at the city of chicago, the most extreme gun ristrictions in the land and one the highest gun crime rates in the nation. What good did the gun control laws do there?

I know assault rifles quite well. I know their capabilities in the wrong hands. What's wrong with owning semi-automatic hunting rifles and properly secured handguns. Let the U.S. government decide who should own assault rifles. That way common sense and public safety would be addressed.

We do regulate & control road crossing with crosswalks, jaywalking laws, and making crossings safer.

Why can we regulate guns?

I have a case of beer downstairs. Not once did any of those bottles open themselves. So why try to regulate alcohol?

No one is looking to ban all guns. This argument you right whiners make is false.

We do regulate some guns. We need to regulate these assault like rifles & high capacity clips.

We also need to better regulate who can get a permit to conceal carry.

That's good but not everyone is pleased with assault rifles. Victims of gun rampages have a say in this matter also. I am siding with them. I don't care If NRA gets ticked off. They are just making money and don't care about the victims.

The lefties got their tax increase on the Evil Rich (let's not mention the 1% increase EVERYBODY got as well).

The pathetic, dependent base of the Socialist/Democrat party stuck it to those Fat Cats. Feels good. Yeah, SOAK THOSE PEOPLE! GIVE US THEIR MONEY!

I can imagine Reid, Pelosi gratifying themselves in the coat rooms of the Senate. First thing out of Pelosi's mouth after the Big Win? "Let's tax the rich some MORE!"

When is it going to be enough?

FYI America --

The Obama Timeline, Can It All Have 'Just Happened'?

Consider the Obama-related 'coincidences':

Barry Soetoro, a.k.a., Barack Hussein Obama just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.

Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago, and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Obama), who just happened to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work, and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job.

Bernardine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers, with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who just happened to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who just happened to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, who just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.

Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X, who just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obama’s Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happen to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happen not to mind exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.

After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that just happened to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul “the Red” Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s thesis at Wellesley College, and Obama’s $25,000 salary at IAF just happened to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company just happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers just happened to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama...

Yup.

Will the powers that be disarm ALL FULLY ARMED gangs?
I'm betting NO.
lol.

Fast & Furious ring any bells?

Will they disarm Mexican cartels operating in the U.S.?
I'm betting NO.

lol

Here is the chart they never want you to see:

http://shtfplan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/0...

According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.
lol

Meanwhile... In Australia.....
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our
own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

The first year results are now in:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,

Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, so the criminals still possess their guns!)

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.

Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in
'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....' You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.

The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Amen to that.
You'll see the same statistics in every country that outlawed guns.

Ask yourself WHY they want you POWERLESS.

Is the State protecting you?
NO.

In England, it is a crime to protect yourself.
If you fight back in any type of crime, IN ANY WAY, YOU will go to jail.

You can't fix STUPID.
