Obama Says Gun Control Defeat Marks - Shameful Day for Washington'

Apr 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WLS-AM Chicago

Standing alongside tearful families of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre, a seething-mad President Obama lashed out against lawmakers who opposed a bill that would have expanded background checks for gun buyers, saying Wednesday marked a "shameful day for Washington." "There were no coherent arguments as to why we wouldn't do this.

No, it's a Shameful day when the President of these United States tries to change the check and balance of the constitution.

People, there is a reason why our fore fathers wanted us to have guns.

This bill was designed to track and control all guns. Not going to happen!

So will Obama ban all pressure cookers are just the high capacity 6 quart pressure cookers ? And will there be background checks on used pressure cookers sold at yard sales ? And what about the cheap saturday night special pressure cookers sold at dollar stores ?

Anyone who thinks this is any kind of victory is sadly mistaken. The only winners are the paranoid conspiracy theory nut jobs who think they need guns to defend against government tyranny. Delusional idiots.

I think if that grade school full of dead first graders was in DC and full of Senators' kids, they might have grown a spine and done the right thing. They are cowards for voting to continue gun sales to the mentally ill and unstable. They have let sown the future innocents who will die because they lacked the integrity to act, bowing to an extreme radical minority whose self worth seems to tied up with their weaponry. It's a sad day for America.

Though many agree with the b.g.checks, they don't agree with the agenda you and your company have. That being, the majority still believe in the U.S. Constitution. Lastly more laws are meaningless as are more background checks. Let me help you understand, it is not the law abiding people that obtain stolen or illegal guns, it's the criminals and the last time I checked they don't care how they obtain their guns. Wake up, your having a bad dream.

Progressive Democrats?

Because the Conservative half of the country disagrees.

Which half was that????

The 1/2 of the 99% who don't work or the 90% of the democratic senate members who got to vote.

Seems any constitutional change should come to a vote of the people to give them a voice and not some stupid slight of hand BS.

Now in the so-called healthcare bill, they are all OK with giving away someones elses rights by raising the taxes on cigs which are already taxed more than any other item. Hint very few people still smoke anyway so that won't get much money..

Wait until they start raising the cost of the free insurance based on weight etc. and see how they like it when it is their rights being effected. Don't be so quick to give away someone elses rights as yours may be next.

I know cut warefare for Fat fulks!! We can give it one of those catchy names libs like so much.

"This poll was conducted by telephone from January 11-15, 2013 among 1,110 adults nationwide." http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-5756438...

Not many in the group questioned. 1,110 is less than 0.000005% of the US Population. Getting 90% of the population to agree the sky is blue on a sunny day would be pushing it.

Why didn't any of the senators mention 90% of the calls they were getting supported the new and improved gun laws? It reminds me of the "vast majority" wanted obamacare but I seem to remember 60+% didn't want it.

This is a lie And you know it. From www.Lung.org :
Among adults who smoke, 68 percent began smoking regularly at age 18 or younger, and 85 percent started when they were 21 or younger.The average age of daily smoking initiation for new smokers in 2008 was 20.1 years among those 12-49 years old.Every day, almost 3,900 children under 18 years of age try their first cigarette, and more than 950 of them will become new, regular daily smokers. Half of them will ultimately die from their habit.

Smoking is directly responsi­ble for more than 90 percent of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, or em­physema and chronic bronchi­tis) deaths and approximately 80 to 90 percent of lung cancer deaths in women and men, respectively. Smoking is also a major risk factor for coro­nary heart disease, stroke and lower respiratory tract infections - all leading causes of death in those over 50 years of age

An estimated 438,000 Americans die each year from diseases caused by smoking. Smoking is responsible for more than one in five U.S. deaths. About half of all regular cigarette smokers will eventually be killed by the addiction

Get your facts straight, dumbass.

Now do the same for obese and overweight people and see which group cost more in health care.????

Where in my statements are my facts wrong, less people are smoking today than before. I also may add that the ones that do are mostly the lower wage earners so Gobmint should make less money.

You just diverted to another topic about the health risk so do the numbers for over-weight and obese or STFU dumbass.

What an impetulant, low IQ phenomenon you must be. No matter what trash phoney statistics you liberals care to spout, the rest of the country isnt buying it. In case you are not aware, it is illegal to sell firearms to criminals, and all gun
sales conducted by any liscensed firearms dealer
in the country must first submit a BACKGROUND
CHECK, and the buyer must by approved by the FBI.
It is a victory...for people who live in the real world. Those who know that the cops cant always be close enough to protect us and our loved ones from a violent criminal, drug-fueled junkie, or mentally unhinged misfit bent on making the 6:00 news/celebrity variety show.
Any half-wit with an ounce of brains knows that killers and criminals dont bother with background
checks, and insane mass murderers dont check
YES on the box that asks if they have a mental
defect that would prevent them from owning a
gun.
So, good luck in fairy world, or whatever liberal
paradise you think lies beyond the yellow brick road. And pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

Sandy why are you so ignorant in Facts and reality. Do YOU realize how Stupid the Dems are and come across. I deal in FACTS ONLY and vote on Facts. Not like you Dems that vote on feelings and brainwashing..

Lets look at GUN control and how Background Checks is total B.S. in stopping murders in the U.S

Lets take this Dems background check to the Extreme and lets say tomorrow we get rid of ALL gun shops in all parts of the U.S. So honestly would you think that will stop many murders by having NO gun shops in the Country?..

Guess what that reality actually exist in the US where there’s 3.8 million people living in Puerto Rico that has NO gun shops to even sell a gun. BUT, Puerto Rico has close to 1200 murders a year!!! On a side not P.R. voted last year to become a U.S. state if Washington approves it.

So lets talk about guns and schools and see how having NO gun shops effecting gun violence

http://www.laprensasa.com/309_america-in-engl...

Puerto Rican government found that 28 percent of the island's 10th-12th grade students took a firearm to school at least once during the past year. The report released on Thursday during a meeting of the Alliance for Social Transformation, also says that about 16 percent of students between the ages of 13 and 17 carried weapons while at school during the past year.
United Nations last year reported if Puerto Rico was a country it would rank as the 15th most dangerous country.
http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_mur_wit...

Sandy you need see WHOM is committing most murders in the U.S. Guess what it’s mostly the Dems Voter base and I can easily prove that.. First look at the voter exit polls
Murder Incarnation rate by race and ethnicity.
http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/youthvi...
http://www.prisonpolicy.org/graphs/raceinc.ht...
In 2007,
Black males 10-24 years, homicide rate was highest 60.3 deaths per 100,000 population.
Black females 10–24 years, homicide rate was highest 6.7 deaths per 100,000.
White males 10-24 years homicide rate was 3.4 per 100,000
White females homicide rate 1.6 per 100,000.
Now the voter exit polls
http://elections.nytimes.com/2012/results/pre...

93% Black voted Democrat/Obama….. FBI report Blacks 7 times more likely to Murder then whites
71% Hispanic voted Democrat /Obama, FBI report Hispanics 3 time more likely to Murder then Whites
49% Whites voted Democrat/Obama Whites 7 and 3 times LESS likely to murder then Blacks/Hispanics

To really solve the Gun/murder/crime problem in the U.S. would be to replace the Dems with Reps. and the US would save 10s of Billions and street crime would drop by 75% not to mention clean city streets and real estate values would go up in was once a dem Ghetto.

Your dems mentality on this issue is so inline with Dems BS thinking that the U.S. being less then 5% of the planets population can save the planet when the Dems cant even get their voter base Ghettos cleaned up with trash/pollution.
