Your distrust of Obama means you don't know the real thing when you're confronted with it. He is a good, decent, honorable man, with a burning desire to make America better. I've rarely thought this about any politician, left or right, but this guy is the top of the line. Be assured, Johnson, I'm nobody's fool.
Attention you bloated wolf tick!!! You owning firearms or not owning firearms was not the point. The point was a law that is beyond stupid. You blabbered out everything that had zip nada nothing to do with legislation that one would expect to orginate on a funny farm. And to add insult to injury the accolades for obama flowed...Frankly, they're nauseating.
Let me educate you scooter...No good, decent, honorable man with a burning desire to make America better would ever allow himself to associate with bill ayers or launch his political career from the home of bill ayers...I'm surprised obama did not join ayers in the photo of him stomping on the American Flag...I can only imagine the laughter obama and ayers shared, the sipping coffee during studies of marx, alinsky and talks about the overthrow of capitalism, the US Government, the extermination of millions of Americans who stand in their way, the WU three finger salute based on a fork stuck in the belly of a murdered pregnant woman, etc. Yes indeed scooter…that’s where you go to become a good, decent, honorable man with a burning desire to make America better...you go straight to bill ayers...Get help scooter, mental help.

The ol' whisky talkin' gasbag joe biden sez..."You don't need an AR15 to defend your home what you need is a shotgun." Well ol' joe didn't need 100s of hair plugs when a rug would have covered his ignorant bald head.

Nothing like an America hating self-serving demented despot who enjoys at taxpayer expense 24/7 security armed with machine guns. When compared to his arsenal the hypocrite b. h. obama lies to the public in order to convince them to give up what amounts to pea shooters.
Rest assured b. h. obama and gun-hating congressional Rats will be nowhere to be found should it ever be you and yours in the path of violence.

There are penalties already. They are not enforced at the Federal level consistently.

Oh yeah, that sure stopped 500 killings in Chicago last year. Hell, you loons can't even get them to pull their pants up, much less get rid of their gats.

So true, Obama flies in circles making speech after speech about gun control and his boy Holder won't even prosicute the 58,000 felons that have applied to buy guns and failed the background check. He flies in circles having 11 families pimp his message while he and holder do nothing to enforce the laws we now have on the books.

Hate to tell you, Mr. Prez, but EVERYTHING's about you when it comes to the far Right and the NRAists. They're heavily infected with Obama Derangement Syndrome, and you are the evil Tsar threatening their country, their neighborhood, and their way of life.

Nuts, of course, but that's how it is. I think you know it, too.

What has the gun-nut Right done about all those killings?

Oh, right, nothing. Tell people to buy guns, and sit back and watch the bodies pile up. They're only poor people and minorities after all, right?

Would you be capable of recognizing the truth, much less TELLING it? Judging by your nickname, apparently not.

Not only racist as usual ("his boy, Holder") but unsupported and hypocritically illogical. Why complain about people failing background checks when you don't even support them? Why pretend you support gun laws when you want them all abolished? Why pretend you care about families when you call them "pimps" and help kill their kids?

You're a sick, evil fasicst mofo. Drop dead.

I watched that speech today when Hardball with Chris Matthews showed it live… that was such a powerful speech by President Obama, and he is right – as much as the tea-baggers want to make everything about him wanting to take their guns away; it’s about protecting our citizens, especially the kids – like the ones who were killed at Sandy Hook.
We need an Assault Weapons ban along with high capacity magazines banned as well.

Dear, those 500 killed in Chicago would like a vote - lets do something for those 500 killed and you guys could then go back into your bunkers under those black helicopters.

YES, Lets have a vote for ALL those killed by good ol' a-toting amerikkkkkkans who hug the second amendment, hug their guns and kill innocent folks.

THEY DESERVE A VOTE.
