Sandy Aid should have been the ONLY content in this bill!

$155,000,000 to Syria....

keep looking for a job, keep working; the USA has been sending billions, trillions to other countries and meanwhile the future generations have a heck of a lot of debt to pay up.

OBAMA = Worst President EVER!, but that can't be so; he's perfect according to the media. He speaks without error, he's a so intelligent, he's PERFECT! Obama is the most PERFECT PRESIDENT EVER!

Vote in 2014 and 2016, RECLAIM America!

Damn, we can use drones to monitor foreign countries, but can't ENFORCE the USA's OWN borders, nor enforce the USA's Laws and rules when it comes to Illegal entry into the USA or the gun laws on the books!

What a CRAZY WORLD and GOVERNMENT the USA has!

National Rifle Association Executive Director Wayne LaPierre said prior to the 2008 election that “never in NRA's history have we faced a presidential candidate — and hundreds of candidates running for other offices — with such a deep-rooted hatred of firearm freedoms.”

After Obama’s election, gun sales reached a record pace as gun owners snatched up guns, particularly those that had been branded assault weapons under the defunct 994 Assault Weapons ban, out of an apparent fear that Obama would crack down on gun ownership. The Obama presidency, however, has been largely uneventful in terms of how it has impacted gun rights.

Obama’s anti-gun record as state lawmaker

When Obama was running for the Illinois state senate in 1996, the Independent Voters of Illinois, a Chicago-based non-profit, issued a questionnaire asking if candidates supported legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns,” to “ban assault weapons” and to instate “mandatory waiting periods and background checks” for gun purchases. Obama answered yes on all three accounts.

When that survey came to light during his run for the White House in 2008, Obama’s campaign said that a staffer had filled out the survey and that some of the answers did not represent Obama’s views,“then or now.”

Obama also cosponsored legislation to limit handgun purchases to one per month. He also voted against letting people violate local weapons bans in cases of self-defense, and stated his support for the District of Columbia’s handgun ban that was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008. He also called it a “scandal” that President George W. Bush did not authorize a renewal of the Assault Weapons Ban.

Record as State Senator

In 1996, State Senator Obama answered a questionaire and stated that he supported a complete ban on assault weapons, supported mandatory waiting periods, supported background checks, and supported a complete ban on manufature and sale of handguns. Claims by Senator Obama that a staffer filed out the form were debunked by media outlets. Those same objectives were supported by State Senator Obama in a 1998 political awareness test. During a 2004 debate for the US Senate seat, Barack Obama mocked his opponent for not supporting a ban on assault weapons which he said had only one purpose: to kill people.

Record as a Senator

During Barack Obama's time in the Senate, the subject of the second amendment was not a hot topic. He voted against a piece of legislation to prevent lawsuits against firearms companies when their weapons are used in a crime.

2008 Presidential Election

Early in the 2008 election, Senator Obama stated that he supported the DC gun ban. He stated that he believed that the Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms, but just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right. After the supreme court ruling which struck down the DC ban, Senator Obama stated that the ruling was still consistent with his views that the community can restrict those rights.

Senator Obama opposed the concealed carry laws which allow people to carry firearms while concealed. He has allowed for an exemption for retired cops who may need to carry a weapon to protect themselves against threats due to their service.

You actually cite Wayne LaPierre as a sane source of anything? This outrageous shill for the gun industry is even disagreed with by most of the NRA membership.

Obama is not trying to take handguns away from responsible people, and has done nothing to prove otherwise. Assault weapons are another matter. When the Bill of Rights was written, an "assault" weapon was a musket. The second amendment at that time could never have dreamed of the type of weapon we are dealing with today, and I'm sure would never have included such a mass-murder firearm for civilians in it's thinking.

The steps taken by President Obama are more than reasonable.
