Maggot control would be a lot more useful than gun control from a public safety standpoint. The soldier hacked to death in London shows that you don't need a gun when you outnumber your victim. Only the potential victims need guns.
However, when it comes to government control over the law abiding portion of the public, gun control is very useful, as Hitler found.

Glad to see it. More ObamaCare and gun control, please, anything to make the Righties' heads explode.

I mean, that's where I'm at now - who cares? Just play their game and enrage the other side.

That's America at this point in time..

Apparently Obama is worried that an 'armed citizenry' might just want to OUST their own leader.

New gun CONTROL won't stop the common shootings that occur EVERY WEEK in streets in cities like Chicago.

I've come to a NEW conclusion about all the Black on Black killing..... I'm starting to look at it from the LIBERAL point of view,or so it seems from the libs reaction. Its no big deal,just a bunch of Black drug thugs weeding each other out. Not my concern. It isn't worth reporting on a daily basis. To keep bringing it up detracts from our REAL problems of the economy,unemployment and the 900 pound gorilla in the room....ObamaCare.

You bet he bypassed Congress. Republicans are ignoring the majority of Americans who WANT tighter gun control. Especially with felons and the mentally ill.

..........Oust the leader? We need to get rid of almost every Senator and Congressman. The entire of D.C. has become nothing more than people who are elected through lies using the tax coffers to get rich. "Vote for my deal and I'll vote for yours" is all that Washington is. There hasn't been ANY consideration for Americans except how to better control us. Ct. politicians have created their own personal goon squad under the banner of the D.E.E.P. They can "arrest" you and put you in custody but there is no law, citizens rights, or due process. These clowns even have their own coroner. Hey, you want fries with that evidence? Get your custom evidence here!!

We were warned that Obama considered himself to be more like the Dear Leader in North Korea than a responsible American President. And, we actually re-elected him anyway.
President Obama isn't the pathetic one. HE won. His re-election proved that the American people are too stupid to handle the adult responsiblity of Voting.

And how many negros each day murder other negros with illegally obtained weapons? The old adage that if guns are outlawed then only outlaws have guns is an inconvenient truth that the libs would like to ignore. An unarmed populace has no protection against criminals or the government.

king obama has to do something. He will do it ALL no matter what.
king obama is a true black/muslim. No other country will ever attack America as long as Americans own guns.
Why should all the black criminals own guns. Get a gun and black crime will go down. blacks don't like to attack people who have guns.
They run and hide looking for easy prey. Like the really old people or women or children. Makes them feel big, black and bad.
Ever see the Medal of Honor go to a black? That's because the other side is shooting at them.
GET A GUN AND PROTECT YOURSELF AMERICA!

Only in liberal math would 22% comprise a "majority"..... We have these things called "Laws" that were written and passed by legislatures both State and Federal that ALREADY prohibit convicted felons and the mentally ill from purchasing or possessing firearms. With over 25,000 local,State and Federal gun control laws on the books,just how many more do we need?

It's already illegal (a felony) for felons and the mentally ill to have firearms. What do you want to do......make it MORE illegal???? Passing more anti-gun laws that will continue to be ignored by the criminals and only put tighter restrictions on the law-abiding will NOT solve a damn thing.

Its liberal reasoning like that that led us down the convoluted path of making "hate crimes" MORE punishable than run-of-the-mill crime.

You do realize that goes both ways don't you....it is fun watching the left implode with their attempts at gun control...the resultant increase in firearms sales is patriotism at it's finest...keep pushing your socialist agenda and your racist attitudes....the right has been buying guns and ammo at record rates while the left is buying watermelon ice tea ,skittles and robetussen cough syrup.

No one is using guns to oust the President, you shameless seditionist. That's just right-wing hysteria.

Too many guns = too much gun violence. More guns means more guns accessible to gang thugs and the like.

I could not possibly care less which "way it goes" for you. The opinions of wackjob extremists should be ignored, or laughed at.

Um, genius, that's the RIGHTIE point of view you've got hold of there, I'm afraid. Liberals have wanted to control guns, to keep them out of people's hands, and however ineffective or misguided those efforts, they clearly indicate that liberals do not want African-Americans to kill one another.

The Right doesn't care or, as in your case, actively supports the killing. It's part of your racist agenda.
