Obama takes on gun violence in New Orleans speech
Days after the Colorado movie theater massacre, President Barack Obama on Wednesday forcefully spoke out against gun violence, making perhaps some of his strongest comments yet as president on the issue.

"Two months later, he [Obama] wrote an op-ed outlining a plan that included enforcing existing laws and rewarding states that provide the best data about gun owners."
F$ck You to all the people calling gunowners paranoid.
"I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals," Obama said.
Bypassing Obama's usual tactic of pretending to speak for people he can't comprehend, I notice he doesn't refer to the Citizen who wouldn't harm anyone with the gun. Only soldiers and "criminals", but NOT a law-abiding Man or Woman.
His remarks remind me of something.....Oh Ya!
The 2nd Amendment.
But also the saying, "if you ban guns then only the criminals (and government) will have them."
"These steps [background checks (duh Obama) and prevention of people who the govt. deems mentally unfit] shouldn't be controversial. They should be common sense," Obama said, though without elaborating too specifically on measures of enforcement.
Oh will all you Leftists just stop with the pretense of being "reasonable" and "sensible" and applying "common sense" when you propose NOTHING that will prevent the next mass shooting and come out shrieking, accusing, attacking, and demanding even while people are still being treated for their injuries.
(Your agenda prevents you from actually addressing the real world in a productive way.)
"We should leave no stone unturned and recognize that we have no greater mission as a country than keeping our young people safe," he added.
Um, no. Your "mission" is to protect the Constitution and The People from enemies foreign and domes-....well, you.
And what is this "no stone unturned"? The president of a free society does not use that kind of language you ignorant bastard.
"White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obama did not have plans to push for new legislation in light of the Colorado shooting."
Gee. Like anyone really thinks that Obama's push for gun control legislation would be based on this shooting. The shooting would just be a means to an end.

PSA: Obama isn't going to take your guns.
Once again: Obama isn't going to take your guns.
He could have done it when he got elected, he didn't.
Stop spreading constant paranoia and lies. Some of you forget we live in the same country. Chill the **** out please.

A murderer armed with a gun is invincible, but a good guy armed with a gun is a vulnerable lamb. In a dark theatre only an armed killer can see and kill with his gun, but a good guy is so blind he can't see his armed killer.
That is the rhetoric that brainwashes hoplophobes into a panic that tramples kids in a dark exploding theatre. The antigun crowd (which includes police) knows how to control the sheep.
It was as though Godzilla was there to eat all of them, or maybe they knew enough to think of an Arab patriot seeking more revenge.
Many of these adult cowards actually pushed people to the floor and then trampled them to race to the door of the theatre - rather than attack the single unskilled shooter and take him down. LOL ! The Left news media tells us of the cowardly heroes who saved the dead kids after they trampled them to death.
The killer, untrained and unskilled, after a jammed gun, limps away in frustration, so the cops can claim heroship at grabbing him where he sat. I'm surprised the troops are not arrested at the airport when they come home after having done their tours.
The Arab Terrorists of 9/11 are beating the crap out of us, thanks to GW Bush and George W. Obomba.

Your a fool and a slave.
Obama has always spoken out about citizens having guns.
He has always been for gun control.
He could not have done it when he got elected because it would have brought every other issue like his government knows best health care to a halt.
He would have had to take on the congress that know their reflection would be in the pits.
If this jerk is reelected he now knows for him it is now or never.
Hitler came to power under completely legal means.
You calling anyone paranoid is an insult not to gun owners but to your own ignorant azz.

When the 2nd started to be victorious in the courts Mrs. Brady told her followers not to worry; they have something planned. Clinton is warring against the 2nd with the U.N., Brady out and out hates the 2nd and Obama has voiced over and over that his mission is get rid of the 2nd as when he says that he decides what's constitutional. Obama is a U.S. hating socialist. And does it need to be said what will happen if he our ANY of his people win ANY office in the upcoming elections.
Has any of you looked at the CCW map? Do you know what state O is from? Here's a hint, it's the one that is still red,(No Issue)in CONUS. Even California, New York and New Jersey is yellow (May Issue).
Remember for this is truth; once the 2nd is gone all is gone....Forever. After all what is there to stop them. This is the true reason our forefathers created the 2nd. To protect us from them.
How does this sound to you? Iran D.C., President Ahmadinejad?
It's possible, It's possible.
In November make it impossible.

Obama was being a little more than disingenuous with his "AK 47" remark. The guns soldiers and the police use are generally not available to civilians. Automatic weapons have not been widely available for sale since 1936.
The imagery of a single shooter, spraying lead in every direction plays well with the ignorant, though and that's an image Obama is hoping to capitalize on - not because he cares about guns, gun violence or people in general, but because it's playing to his base in an election year.
