Apr 8, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS News

Stopping through Connecticut for the first time since a mentally ill gunman slaughtered 20 first-graders and six educators at a Newtown elementary school in December, President Obama delivered at the University of Hartford an impassioned speech, rallying those affected by gun violence to "expect more" from Congress and to urge lawmakers to move ...

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.

Of course it is about him. Every move he makes is about him, the Messiah, the Ruler of the whole Kingdom. He is the most narcisstic human ever to walk this earth. But you know what? He is also a lame duck right now, and even his Democrats are backing off his gun control bill. His illegal aliens might get something, but not what they thought they would get by far.

YES, We do need to BAN assault weapons and their magazines... AT LEAST when they add involved in a shooting resulting in death.. WE CAN PUT THE KILLER away for LIFE... BUT, ya know... there WILL always be a Supply and Demand for guns of ANY type..MONEY TALKS!!

Are you aware of the Law?

The Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, also known as the DICK ACT of 1902, invalidates all so-called gun-control 'laws'.

It also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities.** SPREAD THIS TO EVERYONE ** The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army.

The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal Right and 2nd Amendment Right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.

The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another illegal and gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders.

The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government can call upon the National Guard.

Yes indeed the self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama is taking 10 Sandy Hook parents “for a ride” on Air Force 1. It's not a joy ride it's a ride with strings attached such as using their deceased children to further b. h. obama's self-serving gun control insanity. The same insanity that prevented adults from having the means to defend helpless school kids and the same insanity that lured the flying parents into a false sense of security.
Frankly Sandy Hook parents riding on Air Force 1 with b. h. obama is indeed a connection to adam lanza. That connection comes by way of b. h. obama stooping to allow himself to associate and to be mentored for years by the communist-terrorist "KillYourParents" bill ayers. That's right b. h. obama associated very closely with a deranged lunatic along the lines of lanza, holmes, loughner and the trench coat duo cliebold & harris.
It was adam lanza who shot his own mother in the face 4 times and it was bill ayers who advised followers to, "KillYourParents."
Not one of those distraught parents flying around with the lord marshal realize who they are with. I mean even lowlifes have the integrity not to associate with an azzhat who advocated "KillingParents" and who also designed a bomb intended to kill and maim US Soldiers and civilians at Fort Dix NJ. Incidentally that bomb blew up killing ayers‘ girlfriend and two comrades.
Those misguided milquetoast parents would not approve of their children associating with anyone with a background like b. h. obama who is without any doubt whatsoever remains the official water carrier for bill ayers et al.
The parents and relatives of Sandy Hook victims will never find what they are seeking in a self-serving man like b. h. obama. A self-serving man who via the taxes of the law abiding enjoys 24/7 security armed with fully automatic weaponry. The POTUS stoops to use a tragedy to attack, deny and restrict the law abiding from possessing a much lesser means of defense for their homes and families.

When are we going to do something about criminals? Are we shooting the pig because the fox ate a chicken?

You're projecting. Not everyone is as unprincipled as you.
Whether you like it or not, Barack Obama is a decent and compassionate human being, who cares deeply about this issue, qualities you are apparently unfamiliar with.
You have to have some ego to run for president. But as compared to others, he shows admirable humility. Your view of Obama has been drilled into you by people who are worth less than Obama's farts.

The incompetent boob only gets involved in things that make him look good. The idiot can't vote "present" like he did in the senate but he can pick and choose what he supports now.

If Obama had followed through with his gun bills in January he might have gotten away with it, but there were holidays to take, and golf outings, and fun, so nothing got done. Now it is too late. Now the Republicans are going to filibuster the whole thing, because they know Obama is a lame duck, and they have nothing to worry about. They will give him gay marriage, and get half the credit for it, and keep the NRA voters.

Attention you bloated wolf tick!!! Do you own a gun scooter? Because if you do, under the new and improved background check that incompetents like you bash the NRA for not supporting hides the garbage that let's say if you simply loan your gun to your wife for a short trip like you've done for years, etc. it could get you both thrown in jail. You with me so far scooter. Here's the kicker...Under the new law before you can loan a gun to your wife, close friend, brother, uncle it doesn't matter because before you place that gun in their hands they will have to pass a criminal background check. And it only gets worse, scooter. To give the gun back to you--you will have to pass a criminal background check. Failure to comply will make 3rd degree felons out of you and your wife scooter.
So you see scooter your buddy that you admire so much has lots of sneaky tricks up his sleeve. You ought to know by now obama's a trickster i. e. the thousands of pages in obamacare...It's like a minefield scooter and if you don't know where to step...KABOOM.

Gun bans have never worked! Those who want those ugly black rifles already have them and all the magazines they need. Most of them saw the writting on the wall and stocked up years ago with everything they need including .223,45acp,9mm.

I know I did.......no worries here, I have even shared a few things with those that are a little short!

Quote of the day....Assault rifle to the world...

"you hate me because I'm BLACK, right!" :>)

Well, coming from an unimpeachable source such as yourself, I guess I'll have to reconsider my position. And I have. You're going back to the locked ward.

I did own firearms. Then I met other firearm owners. That's when I gave them up. But I have other means of defending myself and my family.

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.

America Would Not Exist if Guns Didn't Exist.. Read your history, and you may learn that what is happening now in America has happened before in other countries, and the result didn't end up well..

Think it over, you never heard of an American Revolution I am guessing?? or the Civil War?? Not too bright I assume..
The 2nd Amendment ensures that I have a way to protect myself from criminals and a government takeover.. And Yes, Government Takeovers do happen, go explore your history..
