Barack Obama told an interviewer at GQ Magazine on Tuesday that he plans to spend his last year in office going after our gun rights or, as he puts it, to pass “common-sense gun laws.”
The interviewer said he felt gun control was going to become the dominant issue of year eight.
Obama made it clear that it would be and he plans to bombard us with his “common sense” anti-gun message:
“I hope so,” Obama said. “We have this weird habit in this culture of mourning and, you know, 48, 72 hours of wall-to-wall coverage, and then…suddenly we move on. And I will do everything I can to make sure that there’s a sustained.”
Obama said easy access to guns is “the only variable” between the U.S. and other developed countries.“
He then went on to say that we are not more violent than people in other developed countries but we just shouldn’t have access to guns when we feel like acting in a rage.
“The main thing that I’ve been trying to communicate over the last several of these horrific episodes is that, contrary to popular belief, Americans are not more violent than people in other developed countries,” Mr. Obama said. “But they have more deadly weapons to act out their rage.”
Obama’s been relentless in his efforts to take guns away from law-abiding citizens while the world burns around him.
He said Sandy Hook was among the worst moments of his presidency and that’s his reason for stringent gun control laws. As usual, he blames the GOP and the NRA.
“‘Think about 2013, right after I’d been re-elected: Our goal was to lead with a big push on immigration reform. And then, before the second inauguration has even happened, [the school shooting at] Sandy Hook happens. Which remains, by the way, the worst few days of my presidency. I went up and visited with those families and—you know, Bill, you’ve still got small kids. These are 6-year-olds, right? And you have 20 of them who’ve been massacred. Right away, our focus had to shift to “Is there a way for us to capture this moment to see if we can get over this incredible hump to try to put in place some ‘common-sense gun-safety rules?’ And we knew it was a stretch, just because of the politics of Congress and the NRA. But we had to try.'”
If he is so caring, why did he care so little when the soldiers were slaughtered at Ft. Hood? He began the Ft. Hood speech with a shout-out to the Indians. When people are killed in sanctuary cities he could care less.
In New York, where I live, residents do not have the right to use a handgun for self-defense. We can’t take a handgun anywhere, unless the gun holder is law enforcement or has a special permit. Even when taking the gun to the shooting range,the gun has to be encased and the cartridge has to be removed. And, yet, it’s not enough to suit the left. They want far more restrictive laws such as mandated gun insurance and they want to limit the type of gun, limit our ammo, and the number of bullets. That’s what they want for the country.
I leave you with this.
This next response doesn’t apply to guns but it’s too ironic and delusional to leave out. The man who never negotiates or compromises and who runs the presidency by fiat said this.
What I didn’t fully appreciate, and nobody can appreciate until they’re in the position, is how decentralized power is in this system. When you’re in the seat and you’re seeing the housing market collapse and you are seeing unemployment skyrocketing and you have a sense of what the right thing to do is, then you realize, “Okay, not only do I have to persuade my own party, not only do I have to prevent the other party from blocking what the right thing to do is, but now I can anticipate this lawsuit, this lobbying taking place, and this federal agency that technically is independent, so I can’t tell them what to do. I’ve got the Federal Reserve, and I’m hoping that they do the right thing—and by the way, since the economy now is global, I’ve got to make sure that the Europeans, the Asians, the Chinese, everybody is on board.” A lot of the work is not just identifying the right policy but now constantly building these ever shifting coalitions to be able to actually implement and execute and get it done.
Poor dear. What was it he said that time, that he envied the Chinese because they didn’t have a Congress to deal with?
