Oh my, caught in another lie………what will the Obama’s think of next.

In an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts aired this morning, First Lady Michelle Obama recalled the tragic death of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton who was shot and killed in Chicago after performing during the President’s Inauguration celebration in Washington D.C.

“She was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” the First Lady explained.“I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

Chicago police reported, however, that Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened fire with a handgun before fleeing in a waiting car.”

Blaming the 2nd amendment for mass shootings is like blaming the 1st amendment for bomb threats.

I can't figure out if these people are just over dramatic or down right habitual?
They lie when the truth will more than do.
Suppose it doesn't help that the MSM runs interference for them 24-7-365?

You can't figure out much of anything, Bradley, and that's because you're a silly partisan twit.

Ms. Obama was mistaken, the editor caught the mistake and edited it out. That's what good editors do, they catch mistakes.

If it hadn't been edited out, she would have misspoke, and your kind would have jumped up and down like chimpanzees hooting and grunting about her "lie" or her "gaffe." Because it's what you DO, of course.

Silly little boys.

LMAO. How does a "STYLE" define an article's definition?

Your statement is almost as ridiculous as your previous one where you claim that weapons of that "style" turn people into homicidal maniacs.

City Wants Power to “Disarm Individuals” During Crisis


Guntersville authorities would confiscate guns of “unruly” individuals during disasters

Guntersville (Ala.) Mayor Leigh Dollar is working with city officials to pass an ordinance that would give police the power to “disarm individuals” during a disaster, a chilling example of how the second amendment is being assaulted via the back door.

This is more an assault on the third amendment. Which is why it comes after the need for the 2nd amendment.

So,we're in agreement about keeping weapons out of the hands of mentally ill libs who are predisposed to go on shooting rampages..... Good. Political affiliation identification should be a prerequiset for firearm purchases. If you're a psycho lib with Anti-social tendencies,no sale. Nearly ALL mass shooters have been libs. So as a precedent libs need to be banned from owning guns. Furthermore they likely need mental evals to see just what KIND of treatment/meds they need to keep them from mass slaughter by other means when their prefered weapons of choice are denied them......

History has proven time and again libs/leftists are killers.

IF a disaster happens and the idiot Mayor decides its within HER power to send police to confiscate weapons two things will happen.

1. A lot of cops will die.

2. The Mayor will be summarily be "removed" fromn office.

PROBABLY by the surviving cops.......

The list is growing for those folks who do not want to support those magazines, companies, etc. who pander to the NRA and the gun business and suck on their teats. Never go to Walmart and never will.
Or we can place our money, support and business with those companies who do NOT support GUNS, GUNS, GUNS and GUNS.
Good to see some folks and organizations divesting themselves of firearms holdings.

Just highlighting this as a typically dishonest rightie tactic, pretending to agree with something which wasn't agreed to at all, but in fact represents the OPPOSITE of the other person's views.

Can a conservative tell the truth? I'm sure it happens, but not often on THESE boards.
