Gun Control Under Obama

Some good news from Obama.I know we have some that would have you believe Obama is doing nothing on gun control. Feast your eyeballs on this:

Yesterday's announcement involves two executive actions -- here's what they do:

#1. Close a loophole that allowed some dangerous weapons to be purchased without a background check. Currently, people -- including convicted felons and domestic abusers -- can buy machine guns and short-barreled shotguns and register them to trusts or corporations to avoid a background check. Not anymore: That loophole is now closing.

#2. Keep surplus military weapons off the streets. When the United States provides military firearms for our allies, it had been legal for private American companies to buy them back, with governmental approval. That ends today: The United States will be denying requests to bring military-grade firearms back into our country, with some exceptions for museums and the like.

These are big steps forward to keep our families and communities safer -- but we also know they're not enough.

Next we need John Boehner and Mitch McConnell to do somethng. Mitch McConnell spends all of his time getting inside trader information, so he can make another 24 million on his investments. The Greedy Hog. George W. Bush taught him that... GREED!

Only Congress can pass legislation expanding background checks for gun sales -- that's why we can't let up.

Share the great news today -- and ask your friends to join the fight.

Calling All Republicans!!!

And the liberals want to deal with gun control.
What a bunch of losers!
The reson Neutral Party is complaining, he has been depending on the Government to take care of him for years. It all began under Ronald (Go In Debt) Reagan. Obama is threatening to cut him off if he don't get a job. GO TO WORK NEUTRAL, you old lazy pup!

I hope not, I said gun control is on front burner. I have a feeling Syria is.
When Obama gave the order to kill Osama. The United States wasn't 100% sure he would be there. What if he wasn't? The Republicans would never let him live that down. Just like they didn't Bill Clinton.
Syria is much more tricky than Osama. The wrong move, the whole Middle East might erupt.
In Syria, all moves are wrong. It's just a matter of finding the one that is least wrong.

You're still upset because I ratted you out. You're nothing but a fry consuming, chicken bone leaving, grease stained stretch pants that show the enormous globs of cottage cheese.
Which do you prefer to be called Johnny or Johnathan?

I have often said, you repeat the same thing over and over. People know what you are going to write before you write it.

You enjoy making a fool of yourself, why Johnny?

Maybe gun control speculation is part of Oblamo's economic plan.
Since he took office gun and ammo sales have skyrocketed and that is one industry that has grown under his historic leadership.
Johnny, you aren't smart enough to know. Anytime people believe there is a shortage, they are like TonyD2. They run out and buy up all they can get their hands on.

Next the seller, can make a huge profit on what he sells. The less supply, the more demand.

As long as people perceive Obama as being stupid, that plays right into his hand.

I can only hope someone doesn't start the rumor there is a gasoline shortage. If there was the slightest hint the Suez Canal was closed, the day that happened, gasoline would go to over $4.00 a gallon. If it was reopened it would take a month or longer to see relief at the pump.

Pale, you can't even lie good. Take that spoiled brat fat ass and go eat another ten lbs of taters and leave the issues to those who think.

Someone that was so stupid to call the police after potential thieves were long gone, cannot possibly be a person capable of making a decision as someone in the White House.

Plus instead of calling the police, as any normal person would do. You watched the suspects try to break into your garage. What do you do? You scare them off, by telling them you have a gun. wasn't that brilliant?

Next what does the "Coward of the County" do? He calls the Police. No! You don't have the sense to make any kind of decisions for yourself or your family, much less second guessing, what the President should do, or not. You simply are too dumb.

TonyD2 you are the typical Republican, like another coward and liar George W. Bush who spent his time during the Vietnam War, training to fly old and useless planes in Texas while John Kerry heroically risked his life in combat and got three purple hearts!

Does a liar like you have the good gumption to remember Bush landing on the USS Abraham Lincoln, with the banner "Mission Accomplished." Everyone in America knew he was lying about the war, like it was over.

I know you scoffed at President Obama, when he ended our involvement in Iraq. If that had been Mitt Romney, the Republicans would never quit talking about getting out of Iraq.

It is with the kind of mentality you and the Republicans have in Congress is why we don't have a law that takes military style rifles out of the hands of civilians.

Next there is no reason, a man needs to carry a gun, hidden from view. What good can ever come from it? You couldn't use it, if a shooter in the crowd, started shooting and killing. If the Police were to arrive, and you are there with your pistol out. How would they know you were not the shooter, or involved?

As an example, we saw a young man's life snuffed out by a man that used his concealed weapon to kill an innocent boy on his way back home from the store. That stinking George Zimmerman killed with his hidden weapon. If he had not had that gun on him. When the Police said stop stalking the suspect, we are on the way. Zimmerman, would have went on home. If Travon was going to break and enter, the Police would have caught him. Instead we had a killer, take the life of an innocent boy.

JJust looking out for my neighbors,who may have been next on their list.

I heard them from inside the house. From the time I heard them to the time they ran off was less than 10 seconds. 10 seconds after that I was on the phone with the sheriff. I don't think that 20 seconds significantly affected their 30 minute response time. IF, on the other hand, I'd have done as you seem to be suggesting, they'd have had enough time to take whatever they wanted from the garage, and still be gone before the sheriff got there. So you have two things to compare... Escaping WITH the loot vs. escaping WITHOUT the loot. Since the loot belonged to me, I prefer the latter. No insurance forms to fill out, no raised rates.
What do you do? You scare them off, by telling them you have a gun. wasn't that brilliant?
It had the desired effect. They stopped what they were doing. Nobody got hurt. Nothing was stolen. Damage was minimal. Security was improved. Logic isn't your strong suit, is it?

How many stories have you told about these kids, that were walking in your back yard? You are another George Zimmerman.

You never had a thing in your garage worth stealing anyway.

I hope you have the smarts to stop talking about your little garage. Do you have any idea, how many times you have changed your stories? Stop while you are ahead.

Were you ever in a union? Or did you work in a family owned donut shop, working for peanuts.

In 1998, Massachusetts passed what was hailed as the toughest gun-control legislation in the country. Among other stringencies, it banned semiautomatic “assault” weapons, imposed strict new licensing rules, prohibited anyone convicted of a violent crime or drug trafficking from ever carrying or owning a gun, and enacted severe penalties for storing guns unlocked.… One of the state’s leading anti-gun activists, John Rosenthal of Stop Handgun Violence, joined the applause.“The new gun law,” he predicted,“will certainly prevent future gun violence and countless grief.” It didn’t.

Legal gun ownership plummeted.

The 1998 legislation did cut down, quite sharply, on the legal use of guns in Massachusetts. Within four years, the number of active gun licenses in the state had plummeted.“There were nearly 1.5 million active gun licenses in Massachusetts in 1998,” the AP reported.“In June [2002], that number was down to just 200,000.”

That is what Mitt Romney Stood and was for too a Massachusetts Society on the National Level and why I don't care for any politician Republican or Democrat from Massachusetts they are all one of the same.

Pale is upset because her potato festival was a bust. After I dropped off the chicken, she got into a fight with her neighbors about sharing. She was eating as fast as she was cooking them. What really set the neighbors off was although I ended up getting 100 pieces she still wouldn't share.
When I dropped off the chicken, I went home as Fry Queen was already arguing. It was later when watching the news I saw police were called.
Oh! Johnny
