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

So yes, the University can buy an armored vehicle.
I'm pretty certain they have Gov't permission.
The difference is the vehicle will be used by trained law enforcement officials.
The AR-15 would be used by an untrained, ignorant, frightened coward, namely you.

Didn't Obama tell us Al Queda was on the run?

Sure doesn't look that way after Benghazi & now Algeria where a bunch of people are missing after the hostage crisis.

Up to ten Americans are still being held hostage.

Romney warned us about North Africa.

It's all playing out now - no wonder Obama & the corrupt media tried to bury the Benghazi story.

Our leadership in the USA is a joke. The people that voted for Obama are idiots.

He won the election by pointing out what a lying prick Romney is.
That's another thing that should bother you. He won by running one of the nastiest campaigns in presidential history.

Made the lies he told about Hillary back in 2008 look like fibs. She wasn't all too happy about his vicious lying tactics either.

Is that the kind of president you want? Win at all costs? No matter how many lies you spread about your opponent?

There's a difference between proving your opponent an unworthy candidate and out-and-out lies.

This president crossed the line twice - in both elections.

A Virginia state lawmaker brandished an AK-47 on the floor of the state House of Delegates Thursday.

Virginia Del. Joe Morrissey, a Democrat hailing from the Richmond area, showed off the weapon while pushing for tighter gun-control laws, The Washington Examiner reported.


"A lot of people don't know that in many locations in the commonwealth, you can take this gun, you can walk in the middle of Main Street loaded and not be in violation of the law," Morrissey said on the floor, according to the Examiner, assuring other lawmakers that the gun was not loaded.

A subcommittee voted Thursday night to kill a bill Morrissey introduced that would have tightened gun controls in the state, The Roanoke Times reported. That bill would have banned the sale of so-called assault rifles and high-capacity magazines.

Gun control will come on line the same way perhaps the last straw being Newtown or perhaps it will take a couple more slaughters but it's coming.

We know that some gun and pawn shop owners are sleazy unscrupulous sumbitches who will stoop very low for the almighty dollar and we've learned that the gunshow loophole allows for a lot of hanky panky kinda like, "Well, I can't sell you this gun without a BG check, but if you're willing pay a little more my unlicensed friend in the next booth can do the deal for us."

In an effort to touch on all four of those elements, the president recommended requiring criminal background checks for all gun sales; reinstating the assault weapons ban; restoring a 10-round limit on ammunition magazines; eliminating armor-piercing bullets; providing mental health services in schools; allocating funds to hire more police officers; and instituting a federal gun trafficking statute, among other policies. The cost of the package, senior officials estimated, would be roughly $500 million, some of which could come from already budgeted funds.
Because these recommendations require congressional approval, the administration is supplementing its proposal with 23 executive actions that will be taken immediately. Those actions include requiring federal agencies to hand over relevant data for a background check system; providing law enforcement officials, first responders and school officials with better training for active shooting situations; directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence; and many more.
"I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality," said the president, speaking about his full set of recommendations. "If there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try."

<quoted text>Please stop, rightwingers have been demonizing the president from the moment he threw his hat into the ring lo those many years ago, as usual you have it backwards.
Maybe it's because he first came onto the scene with an attitude which wasn't tempered by an idolizing press?

Or an inability to lead but delegate and/or demonize?

Which had nothing to do with his less than steriling affiliations while wanting to "fundamentally transform" the country, I suppose.

Anyone who says that there is anything unsettled or unknown or unclear about the relation between gun control and gun violence is either lying or ignorant, or both. Many things in our social life are complicated and multivalent; this one is not. Guns do not protect people, or families. Any anecdote that can be mined to claim that they do—and many of those stories evaporate on probing—is overwhelmed hundreds of times over by the number of well-documented accidents, suicides, and domestic disputes turned into murderous occasions produced by the presence of a gun at homes. A gun turns a drunken dispute into a bloody death.[...]

In the end, the President didn’t speak from the bully pulpit. He didn’t even speak from an elevated post. He just spoke from the mind, and from the heart, and he raised spirits still haunted by the image of twenty small, terrified children, heaped up in a pile of death, whose last breaths were spent in a state of terror because a madman got his hands on a military weapon that no one in a free country should ever be allowed to hold. Good and great causes don’t advance without resistance. First the thing is impossible, then improbable, then unsatisfactorily achieved, then quietly improved, until one day it is actual and uncontroversial. So it was with putting military weapons into the hands of openly homosexual soldiers, and so it shall be with taking military weapons out of the hands of crazy people. It starts off impossible and it ends up done. The arc of the universe may be long, but the advance of common sense actually can take place very quickly. And if it bends toward justice, or simple sanity, it is because people bend it. What we are seeing may be the first signs of a nation deciding, at last, to bend back.
