This isn't about gun laws. It is about power, and Obama not wanting it give it up. Every tyrant that took power in the 20th century first picked up the guns.
I don't ever recall hearing about President Obama shooting his hunting partner in the face. Especially when hunting quail and when doing so the hunters are usually in a line to one another.

Of course you never hear anything BAD that Obama has done - Benghazi - Fast and Furious - Obama keeps all his lies and faults under lock and key and when that does not work he writes executive orders to cover up his shit and gets his workers to go on TV and LIE for him. When America hears his faults it is because it has made the news in England or Canada - then we find out the truth.

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.

Why is this on the Israel forum!? LOL!
Is it because Jews like Feinstein, Bloomberg, Schumer & Lieberman are the biggest supporters of gun control in the JEW.S.A!?
Not very bright for a people who were disarmed of their guns in their Nazi German ghettos.
Even Jewish Nazi collaborators like Abraham Gancwajch or Chaim Rumkowski were disarmed of guns by Nazi Germany..
We keep hearing about this "Superior Jewish intellect"
So why would Jews be the biggest supporters of gun control in America with 96% of Jewish Americans supporting gun control!?
Not very bright for this so called "Superior Jewish intellect"
Even more shcoking when Jews tend to be obsess over the Holocaust so much.
You would think a lot more Jews would be aware of the dangers of gun contol with that!?
I guess Jews aren't very bright afterall!!!
compared to what - you? LOL ...

Obama Will Become First President To Spend $4 Trillion In One Year…
The OMB’s historical tables also reveal that the White House does not expect this administration to ever run an annual deficit as low as $458.5 billion, which was the deficit the government ran in fiscal 2008, the last fiscal year completed before Obama took office

The fraud that is Barak is so black he can't even shoot hoops! What an embarassment.
As for Moochelle, she isn't the smart, intelligent woman the media makes her out to be. She's 50 and her stated idol is space cadet Beyonce who is 20 years her junior. This is who the liberal voters think can become president after Barack?
The couple use the weakest link in America to further their personal agendas, children and unborn children who either can't get born, who are born and carry their lavish credit card spending debt on their shoulders the day they are born, and who starved for 7 hours being trucked in like cattle to Moochelle's publicity tour in Chicago. They were told not to bring food and did not get served any food for 7 hours because she didn't want signs of food at HER ANTI-OBESITY event. Of course, Bison Breath Moochelle snacked on ribs before, during and after the even. I can't see her going without food for 2 hours no less 7 hours. She is a dumb broad and people ought to wake up to this too. The media keep calling her smart and intelligent. There is only proof she's a dumb broad like Beyonce, her idol, who turned into a Linda Blair at the NFL. Moochelle has a bad influence on people. She represents badly.
Hey moron, why don't you tell us how you really feel! Having a hard time expressing yourself since we took that N word away from you, eh?

This is how freaking insane Americans are about guns – they are on a buying binge.
Police departments are having a difficult time getting the necessary ammunition for officer’s handguns, shotguns and especially rifles. With the delay in ammunition, some departments are limiting the number of rounds they carry in their handgun because of the shortage of ammunition. We get to the point where it is difficult to have enough ammo to train and also equip the officers. Several police departments are getting desperate. Right now, a lot of smaller police departments have been forced to paying retail prices for ammunition, because they cannot get it through their suppliers.

Just another example of the gun-loon’s freak-show lunacy, the Gov’t has always bought ammo in bulk. Last year, the department put out an invitation for bids for a total of about 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next five years. The rounds are to be used for training, routine weapons qualification exercises and normal duty by various department agencies. It’s routine nothing more ...

Over 30, 000 die of gunshots each year. 100 men, women, and children for each day of the each year. An estimated 222 million firearms are in circulation in a population of 260 million. There is enough ammo among gun owners to kill our entire population 10 times over. One handgun rolls off an assembly line every twenty seconds, and someone is injured or killed by another handgun once every twenty seconds.

Like the man said:“we must stop being the stupid party” good luck with that ...

The people that are Intelligent know that guns do not kill people - PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. A gun has NO WAY to jump up and pull its own trigger. It is ashamed that there are so many morons that just cannot seem to understand that. Knives do not kill people and since the 14 kids got cut the next thing we will have is a background check to buy a steak knife. STUPID BREEDS STUPID and we have it in the WH NOW. I am sure Obama will use our tax payer dollars and fly, wine and dine the parents to get the back ground check on steaks knives in action.

Chicago has background checks NOW and NEVER is anything done to enforce them.

I guess Obama's purchase of 2 billion hollow points has nothing to do with it either. You loons are a hoot. I bought 500 rounds the other day, no problem. If your scared move to North Korea, I hear no one there has guns..........except a mad man disguised as the pillsbury doughboy.

What part of "Criminals do not obey Laws." do you NOT understand.

People have been murdering each other since the beginning of time.

A determined Killer WILL find a Weapon to kill.

A simple gasoline bomb (Molotov Cocktail) has proven to be THE deadliest "Assault Weapon" per incident....

Without a firearm, a determined killer can and will, easily, use far deadlier Molotov Cocktails, Bio-Chem, weapons etc to take a far greater toll.

The issue is not the inanimate object/s being used but thwarting a determined killer.

I obviously need to repeat that we will & are loosing our Freedoms insidiously; quietly; bit by bit.

The term "Black Helicopter" seems to be a derisive hit among the Sheeple / "It Can't Happen Here" Crowd but drones are as real and nationally pervasive as the types of screens you are viewing at this moment.

I strongly recommend extensive travel to totalitarian countries and conversations with their unfortunate people before you decide to eagerly start giving away freedoms OTHERS may appreciate.

Yes, it IS about Freedoms,

Yes, it CAN happen here

and it doesn't matter what I NEED,,,,

it's the Right to have it/them for which far better people have died than pampered and naive Sheep who've been no where, done nothing and sacrificed less!

Ham sandwich - and gun not sure how you related these two but it sounds like you going to have Obama make everyone get a background check for a HAM SANDWICH. Typical way of thinking for a MORON LIB.

Yes, when an honest, on-topic & factual refutation is beyond ones intellectual reach, a cutsie snippit is absolutely essential.

What Idislike about the so called "Gun Debate" is the dishonest rhetoric and need for feel-good, weasel terms:
For Example:
1. Gun "Safety" REALLY means, "Gun Confiscation/Control"

2. "Common Sense" Gun Laws REALLY means "Gun Confiscation/Control"

3. "We need for US to...." REALLY means: "I want YOU to....."

As I mentioned in my earlier comment, While living in "W. Germany (1974) I remember so well the long, in depth conversations I had with the people who described the rhetoric used and the slow, insidious nature by which Hitler came to power. I was also in communist countries and paid attention to the rhetoric and the "buzz words"
There are SO many similarities today and it's so clear to me....
But, we'll just have to let the Sheep blunder (taking us ) into the slaughterhouse named "Security" for "Common sense": speech, assembly, gun, religion, checkpoint, drug, etc Laws

I don't care if there is a hunting accident, but I refuse to let anyone, least of all a Muslim sympathizer, disarm this counrty. I am very happy he couldn't get a weapons ban, or backgound checks on private gun sales There will always be ways around letting the Government disarm the country. The 2nd amendment is alive, and well, and the TEA party wins again!!~

All of those things are bullshit, except I suppose that it was on Obama's watch. Not that he spends all day in front of a bank of TV screens overseeing the world, as you'd like to pretend.

Typical Rightie malarkey and paranoia. The only people these days who resemble Nazis are the far right (religious, teabagger, anti-choice, militia, etc.) and their party, the GOPee.

Who else pushes nationalism, patriotic extremism, religiosity, militarism, and world domination?

Fascism is the modern American Right. Deal with it, crazy guy.
