Op-ed:
Countdown to gun control...maybe not
By: Diane Sori

 
“He (Michael Bloomberg) can’t spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the American public,” said NRA Chief Executive Officer Wayne LaPierre.

NO, but he can sure try as the 'bad guns kill people' bleeding heart liberals are giving a final push to put gun control laws into place that challenge our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Using the standard anti-gun propaganda of 'it's for the children,' Mayors Against Illegal Guns (a group run and financed by ubber leftist and muslim lover NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg) this week began a $12 million dollar television blitz targeting Senators (who are on Easter and Passover recess) in 13 states in an attempt to garner votes to 'fix' what they consider our broken gun laws (which by the way like our immigration laws are NOT broken...they're just NOT enforced).

And of course our ever-loving Barack HUSSEIN Obama stuck his nose into this as yesterday he had another White House 'it's all about me' photo-op event where he gave a speech accusing opponents of his gun control proposals of drumming up fear, and urged his supporters to call members of Congress and pressure them into backing his proposals. And true to form he had mothers who support tougher gun laws...mothers who were victims either directly or indirectly of gun violence...as a backdrop as he played for sympathy, and once again exploited the child victims of the Newtown Massacre for political fodder and political fodder alone.

"It is deeply unfortunate that he continues to use the tragedy at Newtown as a backdrop for pushing legislation that would have done nothing to prevent that horrible crime" said Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) after Obama finished his bloviations, which included saying, "There are some powerful voices on the other side that are interested in running out the clock, or changing the subject...They're doing everything they can to make all our progress collapse under the weight of fear and frustration."

NO...I don't think so as changing the subject on our Constitutionally given right to keep and bear arms is NOT something we're interested in letting the clock run out on.

And so those in the Obama trenches continue pushing hard for stricter gun control laws as they work their fingers to the bone in a last ditch effort to influence any Senator who is still fence sitting into embracing their point of view. Yesterday, more than 140 public events in 29 states were held in what was called a 'National Day to Demand Action'...to end gun violence. And for those who couldn't make it to events in person, an organized call campaign to pressure congressional offices to support what they claim is 'the common sense reforms' that a majority of Americans want was also held.

I hate to inform them but what the majority of Americans want is for Obama to keep his hands off our Second Amendment...but I digress...

Mayors Against Illegal Guns, in conjunction with Organizing for Action, Americans for Responsible Solutions and other (leftist) groups organized these events to try and convince the populace that inanimate objects like guns are the problem while they still completely ignore the fact that guns are NOT the problem...people are the people...bad people who will always find a way to get guns NO matter how many laws are put into place.

So as we near the April 8th start of the debate in the Senate, thankfully, Prince Harry knew they didn't have the votes to renew and expand the so-called 'assault rifle ban,' so he took that off the table (Senator Dianne 'I can have a gun but you can't' Feinstein will still try to push it through as an amendment) leaving Obama and crew to push hard for the only things they have even a chance of getting passed, including legislation that would require universal background checks for every firearm purchased in this country, strengthened punishments for illegal firearm trafficking, and more money for school security.

But Obama's hoped for required background checks for all firearms purchases is NOT being proposed for altruistic reasons but for the sole purpose of keeping a national gun registry so he and his minions can see which one of us are armed and which one of us aren't. And don't let all the bloviating 'it's all about the children' rhetoric coming out of Obama's and the gun controllers mouths fool you into believing otherwise.

And with Republicans in the Senate planning to ensure that any gun control proposal require a 60-vote threshold in order to proceed, and with four Senators (Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee) ready to filibuster any gun control proposals, maybe this will NOT be a win for Obama and his gun control loons, but a win for 'We the People' and our Constitution, because as the saying goes, 'if you outlaw guns only the outlaws will have guns' and we all know about this outlaw administration...now don't we.

  1. Obama was whining in a speech today and about stricter gun control laws. He said, as if it were a fact, that 40% of gun purchases take place without a background check. This "fact" is based on a telephone survey conducted in 1994. They polled 251 people. 65% of respondents said they purchased their gun from a federally licensed dealer, 35% said they weren't sure. The study assumed that meant they didn't, and rounded it up to 40%. I guess that this doesn't qualify as a lie, just a gross exageration of a non-truth, of course, people believe it because obama-god spoke it.

    1. Every word out of his mouth is a lie because he himself is a lie. And surveying 251 people...as big a joke as he and his entire administration is.
