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

The state of Tennessee has suspended the handgun carry permit of James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, who recently said he would "start killing people" should President Obama take executive action on gun control.
State officials explained they revoked the permit because of Yeager's "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public," according to a local TV station. Tactical Response is a Tennessee-based company that specializes in firearms and tactical training.
"The number one priority for our department is to ensure the public's safety," wrote Commissioner Bill Gibbons. "Mr. Yeager's comments were irresponsible, dangerous, and deserved our immediate attention. Due to our concern, as well as that of law enforcement, his handgun permit was suspended immediately. We have notified Mr. Yeager about the suspension today via e-mail. He will receive an official notification of his suspension through the mail."

Vice-president Joe Biden said on Friday that there was no "silver bullet" to solve America's gun problem, but that he hoped to present a broad package of recommendations early next week.
On the final day of talks at the White House, Biden met executives from the video games industry, reassuring them that he held "no judgment" and that the sector was not being "singled out". Representatives of the companies behind the popular Call of Duty and Medal of Honor franchises Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts were summoned amid suggestions that violence on screens may be reflected in real life crime.
In comments accompanying the meeting, Biden raised the question of whether there had been a "coarsening" of American culture in general. "I do not know the answer to that question," he said.
In the aftermath of last month's school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut in which 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook elementary Biden was instructed by president Barack Obama to form a taskforce to look into measures that could be introduced to crack down on gun violence. He is due to present his findings to Obama early next week. "I'm shooting for Tuesday. I hope I get it done by then," Biden said on Friday.
THESE BLOOMING IDIOTS NEED TO TALK TO ALL THE GANG MEMBER
IN THE USA TO SEE IF THEY CAN SLOVE THIS PROBLEMS SINCE
THEY SUPPORT THESE OUTLAWS!!!!!BECAUSE IF YOU OUTLAW GUNS
THEN ONLY THE OUTLAW WILL HAVE THEM!!!!!
All this crap is just for the media. Gun control legislation, if any, will be minimal, similar to the expired assault weapon ban. Confiscation of existing legal weapons will not occur. Obama knows better.

The left will whine, but they have no place to go.

You get really belligerent when you've been beaten.

I really love seeing your rage at Dave!!

You stepped right into Dave's trap, bigger point was that you didn't even know initially that Sec of State was a cabinet post.

All the rest is irrelevant. You started shit without benefit of knowing what you were talking about.

Which is typical of your weak assed crap.

So go ahead, accuse others of being drunks, sluts, mfers dumbfcks, etc.

Everyone knows exactly just how stupid you are.

The only meaningful Cabinet positions are State, Defense, Treasury, and Justice.

So we have three white men and a black man.

All the other Cabinet offices are chicken-shit jobs.

There's a right way and wrong way to do things. Those two guys were being extreme, but they made the point. America is a DEMOCRACY, For the People, By the People, of the People.

Nobraina is right on this one, Carol.

It's a loser for your side, no matter how passionately you feel about it.

Your leaders use it to get your vote, but they've had 40 years to repeal it, and you got bupkus.

It's a shell game, and you're the victim.

Even Nobraina can see that.

Republicans should remove any reference to abortion from their platform. Most women do not like to have such decisions removed from their hands by men, even if they would never have an abortion themselves. This issue is terrible for Republicans.

Let Planned Parenthood have their money to liquidate future Obamabots.

Not true. Some people can see right through the Wrong of those who just want to try and bully and/or manipulate others.

People that seemingly just like to push people just for the sake of nothing but trying to "bully" them, need to be smacked down, or at least checked out for further analysis-cause there's just something way NOT right about that kind of thing. That's why there's civil LAWS AGAINST that type of warped behavior...like that of terrorists, as in sociopathic.

I take it that you are part of the rebellion against the Constitution, right?
The future is easy to predict. Obama intends to make himself dictator and write his own laws. That is using the office of president to rebel against the government of the United States, you know.
Those that are willing to die to get rid of the Constitution will join his rebellion.
Those that are willing to die to preserve the Constitution will fight against the Obama rebellion.
When the smoke clears, the winners will surely hang the losers.
Yes, we are all well aware of your predictive powers!!

Romney-Santorum ring any bells??

How about 'landslide'??

It's so amusing to see old racist white guys calling for treason and attempting to justify it by the twisted logic that your are 'preserving the Constitution'

We just had an election.

Your side lost.

Start behaving like an American, and not like the treasonous bas tard you act like around here.

Guns Are Killing The Republican Party

A Republican operative warns that the party needs to answer its addiction to firearms or face irrelevance.

Republicans need a message about guns other than the NRAs we need more good guys with guns idea, which, by my estimation, would cost about $5 billion and impose a federal mandate for armed guards at schools rather than allow for local control, neither of which strike me as conservative approaches or solutions.

The Newtown massacre created a tipping point on the gun debate in America. The Obama administration and Democrats are moving quickly to reframe the issue and move new policy. As a citizen, I think it is appropriate and overdue. As a political observer, I think its smart politics. As a Republican, I think its yet another instance where the party, by refusing to recognize reality, is going to end up looking like the stupid party that fails to adapt and evolve to changing circumstances in our society.

The most frequent argument I hear from GOP colleagues is:People promoting new gun control laws are liberals from the coasts who dont understand our culture. And none of their ideas would actually have changed anything at Sandy Hook.

Okay, Im not a liberal. And I do understand our culture. I grew up in Colorado and spent much of my adult life in Texas where shooting guns is almost required by law. Deer, dove, and quail hunting is a right of passage in the Lone Star state. So, I own a couple of shotguns and a couple of rifles. And I had a.44-caliber handgun to defend against bears in the Colorado mountains, until I gave it to a friend, afraid that I was going to blow off my foot.(Turns out pepper spray is a much better deterrent.)

My question to Republican gun enthusiasts is: How would anything being proposed in any way impact what you do now with your guns? Or, is it that you are just hostage to the NRA talking points?

....And yes, we need to look all the contributing factors to violence in our society, including mental health interventions and violent media. But recently 11,000 Americans lost their lives in gun-related deaths in a year. During the same period in Japan, 11 died. And last time I looked, they play videogames too.

Unless the GOP comes out with a proactive plan that has some appearance of responding to recent events, then it continues to play defense and digs deeper the hole it has been digging for itself in recent years. On issues where the physics are moving irrevocably forward, like immigration, gay rights, and guns, the Republican Party continues to look backward. And backward is a sure path toward irrelevance.
