How could you not trust your President to make good on his word?

Obama believes in the Second Amemdent. It seems that it covers his needs extremely well.

Obama signs bill giving himself lifetime Secret Service protection

"White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama signed the “Former Presidents Protection Act of 2012” on Thursday. The law affects Obama, former President George W. Bush and future presidents, who under current law would only be protected for 10 years after leaving office."

Some of us are wondering if we will have a Second Amendment once he leaves office. Will the Secret Service be limited to the use of the same weapons as "We The People" or will we be third class citizens by then?

Obama won't get any of my guns, no matter how badly he would like to disarm me. I also know that I am not alone in this matter.

i found this made me smile, and although it is not an actual quote, it comes very close to what uncle joe might say:

"I'm not saying what the new gun rules will be, but I would suggest this might be a good time for people to go out and get themselves a slingshot."

And here we have Joe Biden talking about acceptable gun control to the NRA and the pro-gun groups right after he talked about gun control to the anti-gun groups. Hmmm... that "bipartisan" committee that was supposed to be looking at all sides of this issue obviously has a mission and pre-determined conclusion even before they started. Myopic fools like Biden are merely pandering to the wacky, uber-left, rather than looking at the solution, which is getting the mentally ill some help. I guess it's easier to demonize law abiding gun owners, rather than get the criminally mentally ill locked up and taking their meds.

Isn't it interesting that the lamestream media, in lock-step with their imperial king, Obama, are constantly pushing for "gun control" when the fact is that semi-auto rifles have been used to murder 350 in the past 10 years yet Eric Holder's "Fast and Furious" scanadal, that gave thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartals, killed 400 Mexican and Americans in the past 3 1/2 years?

But we don't care about reality...just trying to help us "feel better" with a growing violent youth population that has no concern about life. (And don't even try to associate the violence with the fact that Americans have had more abortions than ever in our history in 2012 and that we've re-elected a President who actually argued, numerous times in Illinois, to allow abortion doctors to have the option of allowing third-trimester babies who happen to survive the "procedure" to just die.)

"Rein in the gun industry first".

What laws have they broken?

Maybe rein in the criminals and mentally ill and enforce the laws we already have.
You have picked the anti gun path that attacks law abiding people and lawful business.

Tell me how going after law abiding people and lawful business makes more sense than going after criminals?

Maybe to some it sounds interesting Rumble. But as yo well know in our founding documents we have this concept of the right of the people to keep adn bear arms shall not be infringed thing.

It doesnt say much about modes of transportation. Somewhere in all our laws there is something about the govt cant stop us from moving around I'm sure but no where does it say you have a right to own or use a car on publically owned roads.

But funny thing - If you keep the car on your own property - guess what - you dont have to liscense it nor register it nor have a permit/liscense to operate it.

Cars are registered, drivers are licenced, yet there are still gun shows at which private sellers can sell to people without simple background checks. Does that not seem incongruous?

Obama may not take all the guns but he is going to make it where it is tough the get ammo for you guns. He want to restrict the amount of amount you can buy. Also he wants all guns registered so they will know who has guns & who doesn't.

Removal of everybody's guns won't, and can't, happen in our lifetime, or the lifetimes of our children or grandchildren. This "they're coming to take our guns" talk is just inflammatory nonsense. Doesn't mean there won't be, and shouldn't be, some logical controls put in place, but guns are going to be around longer than we will be.
They will be part of the American psyche until they become totally obsolete, replaced by energy weapons of some kind.

Wanna bet the EPA will be one of the tools used, as in declaring ammunition a hazardous material because it contains lead, and thus it's subject to EPA regulations?

The EPA is Obama's Gestapo.

Biden: Obama Considering 'Executive Order' to Deal With Guns

"Biden talked also about taking responsible action. "As the president said, if you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking. But I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of Americans and take thousands of people out of harm's way if we act responsibly.""

A president can override the Constitution?

White House weighs broad gun-control agenda

"A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said."

"At the White House meeting, Stanek said, “the vice president indicated that there was a very short timeline for him to get back to the president with his recommendations because the American public has a short memory.”"

Firearms are ginned up by the MSM due to this "short memory" opportunity, in my humble opionion.

The EPA has already taken a stab at starting the process to have ammunition declared a hazardous material because it contains lead.

Bell: " It does make it a lot easier to confiscate them if you know where they all are... No one is trying to take away your guns, YET. "


One step at a time. Remember, the constitutional amendment authorizing the income tax was sold to the American public as a way to collect a percent or two from the very wealthy. My oh my how that has changed from how it was sold to us.

As a software engineer I can also tell you without a doubt that once you create a database of information people will find uses for it far different than the reasons given for its creation, and far different from the reasons given to the people who supplied their personal information which was used to populate the database. That's so true that it's almost a law of physics.
