Obama: I Don’t Need Congress To Take Your Guns

In a gun-grabbing scheme as desperate as it is wrong, President Obama is threatening to bypass Congress and go it alone via Executive Orders if legislators don’t move fast.

The sudden rush to Executive Orders comes as Obama sees the writing on the wall: the American people do not want more gun control, and the Republican Congress is listening to the people.

Thus, Obama’s roots are showing — his Chicago thuggery is coming out. And through the threat of Executive Orders, he’s basically telling citizens that he will get what he wants… and they will like it.

Although the country was reeling and emotionally fragile on Dec. 14 and the days immediately thereafter, we found our footing and realized anew that the actions of one —  in this case, Adam Lanza — ought not in any way limit the freedom of the many.

As a result, Obama has watched as Americans vote with their wallets at gun stores, ammo dealers, and gun shows. He knows that every passing day without new gun control legislation is a day in which other news gets the chance to drown out the gun control mantra Obama sycophants in the media have pushed since Sandy Hook.

Soon, all media talking heads pushing gun control will sound as lost and shameful as Piers Morgan. And at that point, the chances for more gun control legislation go from zero to less-than-zero.

Unless we do things the Chicago way, of course. And if we do that, Obama will stretch his Executive Order powers until they almost snap to bypass Congress and implement every gun control measure he can implement.

Call it what you want; it’s just Chicago thuggery 101.

    I think this is a stretch to call it Chicago thuggery. I think your playing off the fact that the president is black. I mean, he was born in Hawaii for crying out loud. And Executive Orders were not invented by Obama. He wouldn’t be the first president to do so. So the Patriot act was voted on and approved by the citizens who lost their privacy? I don’t think so. I mean, Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. But the president has the power to operate within the scope of his duties.

    • Dean Ville says:

      Well put. The article screams of “hate: for our President.

      • Well, when your President acts like a king or a home-grown Hitler instead of a President, then he is not our President and deserves hate, loathing, and contempt.

        • Oh, and did you feel hate, loathing and contempt when Bush enacted the Patriot Act? Stop listening to Limbaugh and Fox News and grow a brain!

          • Joe Mays says:

            Christina Stauffer, learn your facts. Bush did not enact the Patriot Act under an executive order. The Patriot Act was passed by Congress. While you are talking about people growing a brain, you proved that you don’t know the facts that you are trying to bash Bush for. While I’m far from a Bush Supporter, you simply sound ignorant. If you see the difference, Bush’s bill passed congress, while Obama is trying to go around Congress. In your own words “grow a brain!”

          • Ron Jones says:

            That’s like saying shut your mouth and eat your dinner. Fox News is truthful and straight-forward, not like professional jokesters where you seem to get most of your ‘news’. Grow a brain that can see past the smoke and mirrors.

          • Brian Taylor says:

            Ummm…”Bush enacted the Patriot Act”??!! Congress passed the Patriot Act – with bipartisan support.

            That you cannot distinguish between a law passed by Congress and the overreach of executive privilege forces me to make this suggestion in the hopes that you might become a functioning citizen:

            Go over to your local high school and see if they’ll permit you to go back through Civics 101.

          • Could say the same about the news programs you are listening to. What makes you think they are so honest about what goes on? You are for Obama, so I understand why you listen to the other stations. They build him up, cover up for him and ignore very important issues concerning him. But, that’s your right to listen to them and believe whichever station you want, but don’t think you and yours are the only ones with a brain. Very arrogant on your part.

          • Aaron Jones says:

            Like Obama would not use a drone against you? Here is a Hypothetical. what if he did. You made it out alive. Not one news agency will ever speak of what happened except for Fox News. CNN will not because that would be going against the president. MSNBC will not for the same reason. who would you go to. The supreme court? Nope they are on Obamas side, and have you executed for surviving the attack. really there is nobody you could go to. You people voted him in reap what you sow.

          • Dearl Hardy says:

            some of you people act like just because obummer won the election last year that he now has the power to do as he pleases and that ends the discussion… Nothing could be further from the truth.

            The fact is yes he got more liberals out to vote on election day and somehow won the election, but those same people also voted for congress which by the way is split with republicans and democrats…

            That is why we have a REPUBLIC and NOT a democracy as so many wrongly state. A democracy votes for a leader who make all final decisions, a REPUBLIC has 3 branches of government all elected by the people for the people and OF the people according to the Constitution created by the founding fathers. The ideas of leading the country are supposed to be created by the President which then proposes them to the congress, who then listen to the people they represent and vote accordingly to those people which gives each person representation on the direction of the country. That is how a Republic functions.

            You people that think once the election is over the side that lost no longer has a say in the matter are sadly mistaken and better hope that is never the case in our country, just remember the next election will probably switch back to the republican side and you will certainly want a voice in everything that is passed then, right?

            Use your head that is why we are the greatest free country in the world we all have a say in the process. And with that freedom is the bill of rights which our forefathers believed were endowed by our creator and the 2nd amendment is that we as a people have the right to Bear arms with any infringement by the government. Now if you use them illegally i.e. murder etc then you face the penalty set forth by the law but you have the right to own it legally no matter what it shoots like or looks like because we are a free people.

            It was also because they had experienced Tyranny by a government that they couldn’t defend themselves from and never wanted that possibility to occur in America like it did in England and later in Germany when Hitler took away their guns “to protect the children” he said.

            Folks you better think twice before you start supporting the ideas of giving up your “rights” as Americans! We are a blessed nation and we have laws to deal with anyone that uses a gun illegally but never give up your rights and trust others to protect you as you would your own family. When you do freedom is on the verge of total collapse. And that is giving up any freedom whether it is speech or guns or any others. That is what makes us the greatest Nation in the world and nobody could ever conquer us from outside or within as long as we follow the constitution and never allow any president or anyone else to ever use their so called powers, which they dont have, to take away the freedoms given within it.

          • jon boesel says:

            Dearl Hardy, I think you need to consider how socialism comes about in a complex society. No dictator (as socialism doesn’t work out like it does on paper) is able to take over with the power of “his” people.

            I agree with everything you say, but consider this. With the growing number of supporters that outwardly support Obama and their growing fanaticism, at least from what I perceive. I.e. disrespect, starting chants during speeches, crossing into people yards ect. What if one day an executive order is given, or even just said, and his supporters take it upon themselves to enforce it. They have already been trained to think of the right as sub-human and immoral. This will be an easy step for them with the correct selective pressures (reliance on government subsidies).

            These things scare me. Progressivists are already flocking to DC in droves. Yes the country was set up to protect us from this exact situation, but it did not take into the consideration the powerful mind swaying powerhouse that is social media. Even if the votes don’t show it, I can tell you from experience the college age generation, the fighters, the ones who aren’t afraid to fly in the face of social norms are overwhelmingly on his side. And they have their “political science” and “economics” degrees to further boost their ego. What’s further, they have started to ridicule legitimate science like, say, a biology, physics, or engineering degree as backwards, stone age thinking.

            At the drop of a pin they will be ready to fight for the chance to be remembered for a revolution.

            All we can do is: buy our guns, show our teeth, and hold out for the next term and hope there is no civil unrest.

            In the meantime we need to start discussing what further measures need to be taken to ensure that this stays a republic and that new problems compounded off old solutions to the previous patch are no longer an option. Revolution should not be allowed to swing so freely. The exception to the rule does not disprove the rule. We can no longer allow old traditions and social structures to buckle under the weight of ever new intrest groups that feel oppressed. Supported by social media crazes, they gain enough popularity for our beauty pageant government to listen too.

            Civil services (construction of, not paying students for, schools; upkeep of roads, police, fire, ems, national security, and our armed forces) are not marketable. Thus I will willingly and freely pay my part in taxes for whatever stresses they may endure. If a service is marketable somewhere else, and I have the choice to use that service, I will refuse to pay the government to provide that service to someone who does not help pay for my civil services.

            If the government is not run in this fashion, then I am not being represented.

            Furthermore, when a general populous realizes they can vote for a party that allows them to receive more for less input, AND that populous becomes the majority (through wellfare cycles and general dumbing down of standards) well any history book can tell you the rest of this story, but it allows the government of THE people to do with the now “old” country as they will.

        • Art Weaver says:

          It may give many of you some hope that in my many hours each day, I have found pro-constitution, pro-gun, pro-freedom, posts to outnumber the liberal sycophants by ten to one. Even on Slate and the other liberal media sites!
          We all need to make an effort to go to the other sides playgrounds and redouble this!

        • Kyd Staccato says:

          Dave u read like a hating creep. He is the President; whether u like it or not. None of you were saying shit when Bush enacted the privacy grabbing Patriot Act. If the Liberals aren’t screaming Bush, then Rupublicants scream Obama, and begin stating Chicago Way. He was born and lived in Hawaii loser. I wanna see you, and anyone else tryout for the Executive Office; You can’t!!

      • our country has 3 legislative branches for a reason. mr. president may invision himself as king but these safe guards were enatcted to prevent one from taking over as dictator. he swore an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States, not to began dismanteling and distroying parts that he doesn’t agree with. he was elected to serve the people, not the other way around. this is not about racisim. that is a cheap cop out. i am probably one of the most unracists people you would ever meet. don’t mess with our constitution. if didn’t like it when bush did it. we must be very careful that we don’t throw our liberties away for the sake of persumed safety. If our president doesn’t like our constitution, he is free to move to russia or china at anytime. i, for one, will not let go of our right to bear arms because then we are at the mercy of a dictator or enemies on our own soil.

        • DIEGO CARDENAS says:

          Dear Carolyn,
          I agree with you in the last sentence and think you are a true citizen of the US. These are hard times and very tough and people like you must rise up and stand for your rights strongly and effectively among your communities asap.

          I just wanted to remind you or inform you that for an individual, of the same faith as Mr President’s, it is allowed to lie as long as the purpose is j1had. Nonie Darwish shows it more clear in her new book “Now they call me infidel: Why I renounced j1had for America, I5rael, and the war on terror.”

          Ms Darwish went to my university 2 years ago to talk about her testimony as an ex-musl1m woman who escaped from Egypt’s regime in which her father was killed by jihadi5t5. She is a survivor of many life threats made by her ex-country’s government, including her family as well. She taught us a lot about the truth of the agenda of those believers who came to kill, destroy and steal in the name of 4llah. By the way, there wont be no peace as they usually say when they say hello.

          She explained to us that a true mu5lim will always pursue j1had and that it is allowed if not enforced to lie about anything as long as the purpose is one: j1had. So, as Mr president told us before who he is and declares in what he believes, it is very clear to me what is about to happen. His oath does not mean anything because 4 years ago he said he was gonna do this and ended up doing that, and he did it under oath.

          With all due respect to our country, to its citizens, the fathers of this beautiful nation, and the flag for which millions have given away their lives, I must say I am sorry for what it is happening now and for what is coming ahead to this nation.

          I encourage you to please go ahead and organize your people, your town, your city, as well as others organize themselves and prepare diligently for what is ahead. It is not going to be nice and he is using your people to justify it. Please, get ready and give your best for your nation as I will join you in the field already.

          Praying for you and 300 million more,

        • With all of the debate ongoing regarding gun control, I wanted to remind everyone of the shooting at a Salt Lake City Mall, on February 12, 2007 where an armed off duty officer was able to stop a massacre in progress. Wasn’t it nice that someone was armed in the mall that day, if not an officer, any legal gun owner could have stopped Sulejman Talović that day. It disturbs me that I have personally not seen any comprehensive reporting on gun violence thwarted by anyone who happened to be present and legally armed, instead focusing only on pushing their agenda for gun control without doing proper research on the matter as I am sure that there are many cases where criminals were stopped because others were armed.
          What is the deal with picking on the AR 15. This is a weak gun that is barely sufficient for varmint hunting. They come with big magazines because they are very inefficient killing machines. A trained individual with a 10 gauge shotgun could cause significantly more damage
          These regulations are whittling away at our 2nd amendment rights. It is unfortunate that there are criminally insane and felonious people who will commit atrocities with weapons. However, it cannot be used as an excuse for our president to violate our Constitutional right, which will surely weaken us as a country, both through lack of protection and lowered public morale as we are surely becoming a country that would give our founding fathers nightmares.
          I wish Obama would show half of the initiative to straighten up his self- inflicted economic mess as he has tackling gun control this year. If so, he just might be able to keep a promise for once instead of taking another piece of the American dream.
          It was just a few weeks ago when the big issue was to curb the fiscal cliff for which the process was laughable. Then, suddenly gun control was able to divert his attention, which surely has a span of 10 seconds, from the current economic situation that is sure to affect every citizen of this country and perhaps the world as our economy is the machine that makes it all happen. Only with Obama care have we seen consistent action with a meaningful follow through that rivals his focus on gun control and circumvention of due process that is fundamental to legal process. This action, regarding gun control, is in the form of executive orders designed to diminish the rights of U.S. citizens. It perplexes me that the majority vote could re-elect a man with the track record so poor, only a politician could pull it off.
          A true leader should be charged with ensuring the citizen’s majority is always the priority achieved through democratic process and never be concerned with blindly doing the bidding of the emotionally compromised few who may have sincere intentions that cause them to lose sight of the bigger picture which is the importance of maintaining the sanctity of our constitution which was drawn up by our founding fathers. Men who seen the atrocities of tyranny that make all recently reported tragedies combined look like paradise. What these men learned is that there is good and the tyranny of evil men. Without the ability to protect yourself you can never be free. It is sad to say, but it’s the truth.
          I want to end by simply defining the word treason: Betrayal or breach of allegiance or of obedience toward a sovereign or government especially in the Constitution of the United States. I think all politicians should remember this definition when participating in any effort to manipulate or side step any part of the constitution. Allegiance makes a man.

          • Lesley Cox says:

            Too bad nobody remembered the word treason when they confirmed John Kerry as our new Secretary of State. Just ask the swift boat ( swifies) captains about his behavior in Viet Nam. There are a lot of people in government now and in the past that need to fear the word treason and the punishment it brings.
            Lesley Chase

      • What a pity. Bet if it was Bush they were talking about you would be right there agreeing.

      • No, the article indicates regardless of the wishes of the people the President is going to do what he wants. There is a reason why the founding fathers created the 3 branches of govt; its called checks and balance. We do NOT have a monarchy.

      • Conrad Dost says:

        Tyrant Obama deserves our hate. He has repeatedly lied to us, violated our constitution and his oath of office, and betrayed our soldiers and those working in Libya. He is working towards fundamental changer or the destruction of our country so he can replace it with his progressive fascist paradise.

      • John Smith says:

        You obviously skipped that day of school when they taught the definition of the word hate.

      • John Teske says:

        When the president tries to steal power that has not been given. When he tries to change the constitution, which is congresses job. When he tries to appoint a cabnet member without congress in violation of the law. He is acting like a dictator. When will he prove me wrong in my dislike. Did his Inauguration have him stating that he would defend the constitution? He is acting like a dictator not like a President of the United State of America. If a companies CEO acted like Obama with the lack of results he has had he would have been removed from his possition a long time ago.

      • rod larson says:

        That’s a bad thing? Only brainwashed Emperor Oscuma bobbleheads blindly love that evil crook!

    • Lee Gann says:

      If we say Chicago we are playing off his being black, well guess what. Obama was a community organizer in CHICAGO, He announced his run for President in Chicago, He has most political contacts there, Bill Ayers, for on, you know the guy who set of a bomb in Washington and New York killing a policeman. The FBI in their infinite stupidity tap his phone without a warrant and he and his lover went free. Obama loves him. Chicago thuggery is the correct classification. Mayor Daily’s ran Chicago like that and Rahm Emanuel is also. Obama is going overboard, he felt he had to tread lightly first term, but this term the REAL Hussein Obama will come out and do his best to become the King of The United Socialist States of America. (USSA) We the People will not stand for it and Hussein and company are in for one whale of a surprise.
      God Bless The UNITED STATES of AMERICA!!

    • Playing the well worn out race card AGAIN? Anytime anyone disagrees with Obama well they must be racist. You people discust me.

    • LAURIE Smith says:

      Will you stop with the race card crap. Congress is our elected body,the spokemen for the American people. It is clear that Americans DO NOT WANT guns taken away or more restrictions. Obama’s problem is not that he is black,it is that half the American citizens do not trust him and his constant power grabs. It is clear that bypassing Congress is not the right thing to do. Something as important as infringing on the 2nd amendment to the US Constitution requires discussion and a decision by the American people.

      • Joey Bonier says:

        It’s like your study of history began last week. The election was the discussion. He has the power to strengthen already existing laws. Congress will have to vote on the rest (assault weapons ban). No one is taking guns away, so please stop parrotting that b.s.

        • No, the election was not the discussion of this issue, we still have plenty to say, we have the power to undermine his anti-gun agenda, and taking guns away has been his obsession, as well as the rest of the left’s. We don’t have to submit.

      • O’Bamma isn’t black, he’s 1/2 black and 1/2 white. It’s ok to speak against him now.

      • Mike G says:

        Yes,

        ALL the American people. The race card thing is a worn out issue. If race were actually an issue, he never would have been elected in the first place. I am so tired of hearing that crap. Obama needs to grow up and realize that the reason people don’t agree with him is that his ideas and policies stink. He needs to stop looking for excuses and admit that people just don’t like his policies and agenda.

      • Conrad Dost says:

        It doesn’t matter what Obama wants or the majority of the people want the right to keep and bear arms is a right.

    • Ann Namouse says:

      KENYA is not part of Hawaii.

    • Chris Brauning says:

      0bama is not to be trusted. He bypasses congress every chance he can get if he feels congress won’t go along with his plans. Call it Chicago thuggery or Draconian rule or even communism. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with following his plan to disarm the American citizens. He is afraid of the 2nd Amendment and can’t implement his plans if there is a possibility the populace may start a civil uprising.

      “The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” — (Thomas Jefferson)

      • Joey Bonier says:

        Right, because your handgun will protect you from drone attacks.

        • Caped Ryder says:

          no but automatic weapons will

        • oh, are you saying that Obama will initiate drone attacks against political opponents in our own country? What’s next? “Re-education camps”, comrade?

          • Randy Kuhlman says:

            Actually Dave, the United States government DID use the military to create “assimilation” camps against the Native Americans. When they refused, they were killed. We did it again during WWII when we set up “security” camps to “protect” Japanese-American citizens, because Americans might have hurt them because of their ancestry. Oh, but our government can be trusted…

            He won’t use drones to attack political opponents. That is what the media is for. And yes, I do believe we have a right to bear arms, including the dreaded “assualt” rifle. You know the difference between it and a regular .223? THE LOOKS! So, if it looks scary we should ban it? Oh and that will stop bad guys from using it and getting it right? Keep telling yourself that, comrade.

      • This quote was found to be…. a fake.

        —–
        From http://saf.org/pub/rkba/general/BogusFounderQuotes.htm

        Thomas Jefferson has many confirmed quotes on our website. Why anyone felt it necessary to make up a quote is ludicrous. Maybe an anti-gunner did it to discredit all the real quotes.

        The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

        Occasionally this phony quote attributed to Thomas Jefferson is given with the following citation: Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334 (C.J.Boyd, Ed., 1950). The publication exists, but the quote does not. And the editor’s correct name is Julian P. Boyd, not C.J. Boyd. In other cases, this quote is added to the end of a proven Jefferson quote “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms…” Thomas Jefferson, Proposed Virginia Constitution, 1776, Jefferson Papers 344.

    • Thank God we have an Executive Branch and a Legislative Branch.
      Obama is threatening to issue an executive order to pass his ill-conceived directive against the 2nd Amendment, thus bypassing the Congress.
      No one has the right to do what Obama is trying to do. He is not an Emperor, a King, or a Dictator. He is the President, and as such he was Sworn to UPHOLD, DEFEND AND OBAY THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES!
      1st Amendment is the Freedom of Speech.
      2nd Amendment is the Right of the People to Keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
      I will say INPEACH KING HUSSEIN OBAMA!!!
      And get rid of the bastard for good!

      • Since when did the 2nd Amendment mandate the use of military style weapons, armor piercing bullets and large capacity magazines?

        Heck, why not bazookas then?

        These arguments are really all about protecting the rights of certain gun industries hiding behind 2nd amendment issues to agitate people who can’t think critically about how they are being manipulated unpatriotically with mis-construed arguments.

        God-forbid anyone thinks about the rights of free people to live safely like most of the civilized world… retaining the rights to bear arms with reasonable limitations.

        • Mark ianni says:

          Jordan: I dare you to try and purchase a true military “assault” weapon. Ain’t gonna happen. Why? Because automatic firearms, not semi-automatic firearms, have been outlawed since 26 June 1934 (National Firearms Act). The anti-gunners have defined any semi-auto firearm that looks like (physical characteristics) a scary black military style firearm as an assault weapon which is absolutely untrue. The honest law abiding citizen cannot possess an automatic weapon without a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and all of the requesite responsibilities that go with possessing an FFL.

          Secondly, what is an armor piercing bullet? Is it a bullet that can penetrate body armor? If so, there are many conventional rifle bullets that can penetrate body armor. If you outlaw all of these bullets then you effectively voilate my right to bear arms to hundreds if not thousands of firearms.

          Lastly, How many rounds is too many for a magazine? 5, 10, 20, 30? If you limit magazines to say 10 rounds and I am a bad guy that wants to wreak havoc with 100 bullets then I will just load up 10 ten-round magazines and become proficient with magazine change-outs.

          The problem is not the inanimate object. The problem is the bad guy or mental subject.

          • Randy Kuhlman says:

            Anyone remember Columbine 1999? They used banned “assualt” rifles and the legal 10 round magazine. They just carried a crap load of them. My point is that banning doesn’t solve the problem. And guns aren’t the problem. Mental health in this nation sucks. But more importantly is parenting. We have a strong lacking of parents acting like parents, a horrible record of growing numbers of broken families, and an over-reliance on the government to fix every problem that comes up.

          • Excuse me sir but automatic weapons have not been “outlawed”, you can still own any one them even a mini-gun, but you must submit to thorough background inspection, get the approval of your local chief law enforcement officer and pay $200.00 class 3 tax stamp fee, or you could get a class 3 license and then buy and sell them always being able to keep one of each type you sell as a sample;-)
            I invite you web search for a place called Knob Creek and see how many so called “outlawed” guns are being legally used!

        • John Emerson says:

          Jordan, You really don’t know your bill of rights, do you? The 2nd amendment means exactly that, military style weapons. See US v. Miller and you might be able to understand a little more about the subject you are talking about. We the people need military style weapons to defend our selves against government tyranny. Just like we are seeing Obama trying to push down our throats now. I want to continue to live as a free man till the day I die thank you…Most people want to be just left alone to be happy and safe, with the means to make a decent living. When the economy turns around after we get rid of Obama you’ll see a happier less dangerous country. It always works that way. Everything Obama is doing is bent on destroying our culture and way of life, people know something is wrong but can’t seam to put their finger on it yet. God, family, work, and homes are all being taken from us a bit at a time, and its destroying our country as planned by the NWO bunch. It needs to stop now before we are un-armed and at their mercy…

        • Lisa Edwards says:

          The 2nd amendment is about being able to match force with force to defend against all enemy’s foreign or domestic so yeah a bazooka would be great.
          They are not discussing reasonable solutions as in the psychotropic drugs all of these shooters were on and mental health issues, this clearly is an agenda.
          The worst part is that most people think a good compromise would be universal registration which is what the UN small arms treaty is all about. They register them first then confiscate them. Look at all the communist country’s they registerd guns then confiscated them. People if we don’t learn from history we are bound to repeat it.

        Your just plain dumb he has not in any way shape or form said he would try to take away your rights it only in the disturbed minds of folks like you that get this crap started

        • Randy Kuhlman says:

          No, just pushing to outlaw this gun and that gun. You are right, that won’t take them away.

        • That what’s the leftists loons said in California promoting the CA so called “assault weapons ban”, SB23, but guess what happened to everyone who was stupid enough to register their so called “assault weapon” in CA, can you say confiscation, boys and girls;-(

          Check out SB23 and the history behind it and see what’s really in store for America if the the tyrant Obomination and his Fabian Socialist sycophants get their way!

          For a real eye opener check out who was one the chief proponents and some say the author, when SB23 was passed in CA!

        • John Emerson says:

          Doc, I’m sorry buddy but your the one who is just plain dumb. Read some of the bills he’s promoting around the country on the state level. Thats just a start, their stated goal is to dis-arm America, for our own good. How anyone, like you, can be so blind is beyond me. Do some reading, learn your history, and don’t believe for one min. that it can’t happen here.

        • Lisa Edwards says:

          go back to sleep

        • Obama said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. He also gave his word on other promises that did not happen. Why would I believe he ‘ll keep his work on not taking away our 2nd amendment rights?

          He’s a politician – he lies to get elected.

      • Conrad Dost says:

        He has already acted in violation of the constitution 3 times. Making recess appointments when the senate was not in recess. Modifying US immigration laws and US welfare laws in violation of the Constitution.

      I am trying to figure out how this article played off of the quantity of melanin in the current POTUS’s skin. on top of that, what does the color of his skin have to do with the state that he was born in?

      Sounds to me like David just wants to fall down and worship the great and mighty Obamessiah

    • Eddy James says:

      I’m impressed,you’ve pulled your head out long enough to notice he is Black, actually kind of a nasty yellowish brown. Too bad he is for sure a lying communist and no one is absolutely positively sure where he was born. But he has no authority what so ever to muck with the second amendment. He is a power hungry narcissist who wishes he could do away with the Constitution with the wave of his hand. Of all the nasty things he’s had in his hand absolute power isn’t one of them. I don’t know why people like you use the fact that his part black to explain away every corrupt thing he does like it’s ok that he is tramping on the Bill of Rights because he be black and that’s what they do. Ignore White man’s law cause that poor negro boy been oppressed. Maybe he needs to go organize a flash mob at the chicken shack, smoke some dope, beat his hoe (Like Michelle wouldn’t wipe the floor with his skinny self if he tried)and abandon his kids, Cause that’s also what they do. Laws and rules are for every one and giving him a pass on ignoring the law is the most racist thing any one can do. What he needs to do to increase his credibility with the brothers is to get himself laid by a White woman like Nancy Pelosi or Diane Feinstein maybe both, one on each arm to ride around in his Caddy and worship the ground he walks on so he’ll leave the rest of us alone.

    • Paul Carlson says:

      David, please put down the kool-aid,throw out your race card, go read your Constitution. Then come back and try again.
      HE’S Black? Ya’think Dave? Really? He’s also white. How does fit into your thinking, Son?
      Executive Orders are for necessity, not for abuse.
      Congress is in place thanks to the Constitution, and has a purpose for this country.
      It not there to be overridden every time Obama get butthurt in one of his power grab schemes.
      “Chicago Thuggery” is bully tactics.
      Dave, the people are speaking and Obama is having a hissy fit by signing all of these “executive orders”. Did he go through Congress to work up a deal?
      No. He went straight to the press and shielded himself with kids like Stalin did years ago. What you have so far is sophistry…
      Please, go sit in the corner until your ready to do some homework……

    • Bill Finch says:

      So why do we need Congress?…For anything.

    • F Stöver says:

      Apparently you don’t know much about Chicago-style politics and the thugs. The writers reference to thugs has nothing to do with being black. Also, it’s a free country supposedly. It’s o.k. to like or dislike what our president is doing. That’s why we hold elections.

    • you are stuck in a circular “logic loop” to justify the very sort of government intrusions the 2d amendment is meant to prevent. it is clear that one guy wants to impair our constitutional right(s) because he knows that “we the people” would not vote to impair that right via a constitional amendment – the one and only way that the constitution can be amended. any executive order to the contrary is unconstitutional! get real buddy, prior unconstitutional acts do not validate future ones. let’s just hope that “we the people” stand firm and hold our elected representatives accountable to do the same. Or, next thing you know is that one guy will, by executive order, prevent me or you from posting these comments!

    • Marie Morgan says:

      @ David Do you know that Chicago is a GUN FREE ZONE and has one of, if not the HIGHEST Gun Violence Rate in the ENTIRE U.S.A.??????? More kids were shot in Chicago in 2012 than in ANY OTHER CITY OR STATE! We could care less if he is black, white, or green with purple polka dots! He’s NOT going to take my guns so I can’t protect my family! As far as “within his duties” yes other presidents have enacted Executive orders BUT who has gone after our right to bear arms? Who is trying to MAKE law abiding citizens give up the right to protect themselves???? Yeah it really worked for all the people who live in Chicago! Take a look at Switzerland. EVERY household is REQUIRED BY LAW to own an assault rifle and Oh My they have NEVER been invaded, they have some of the lowest crime rates and oh yeah they have the LOWEST GUN VIOLENCE RATE COMPARED TO ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD hmmmmmm might want to think about that….

    • Nathan Scott says:

      If you read the Constitution, and the Bill of Right. You would see that not only Obama, but other presidents, and congress have over stepped their powers. given to them by the states that gave it to them. This is not about black or white, but about our rights and freedoms being taken away by a government, that has gone wild with power. I for one will not stand by and let them take anymore or my rights away. And I will not be looking to see if the one that is trying to take them away is black or white. I will say that to use the (Chicago thuggery) is wrong. as far as him being born in Hawaii? That is still up for grabs. I t has never been proven by him or anyone else that he was born there. And the fills are closed so no one can get to them. Really need to look at all the facts before you speak…

    • Heatha Bowen says:

      How pathetic of you. Chicago thug to me is associated with Capone – strong arming-union so talk about a stretch!!

      You are a racist for assuming others are so shallow and ignorant as you assume they are.
      Just because people do not respect the JOB he is doing has nothing to do with the color of his skin. Judgments are not so simplistic and if you base it upon the the value of his word and integrity,the man comes up short.
      It is so condescending for people to make such baseless accusations of racism.
      The country elected the man twice.
      Those who didn’t vote for him didn’t because he was untested,never held a long term job and can now be defined as an abject failure.

      We are talking about our Constitutional Rights here when it comes to gun confiscation.Nothing he has proposed would stop any scenario he claims to want to stop.So why do it if it infringes upon our rights?
      We are talking about a President who has started illegal wars,by usurping Congress Senate(which GWB was accused of but was untrue)
      The man ushered in the Arab Spring.
      The man has ruined the economy and all he does is foist more and more debt and taxes onto we the people….Only to blame everyone else for it.

      How about those drones killing American on American soil? Its ethical???
      Why does anyone stick up for this guy anymore he is an abject failure who has never even passed a budget in 5 years.
      He could of blown less if he acted Presidential and delegated the task but he can’t even do that.

      So sick of seeing the term racist used as it diminishes a once powerful word. You take from it its true meaning and the lessen the gravity of what generations past endured.
      Shame on you and those like you. Yet,you are just parroting the msm because how else could you defend this hot mess???

    • Brian Taylor says:

      The reference to “Chicago thuggery” has nothing to do with race. The political machinery in Chicago is well known – and it stretches way back into the days of almost exclusively white political history. Note that the current mayor is white, and no one has spared references to his thuggery. Apparently you failed to notice that.

    • Stop already with the race card!! We all know what assuming does. There was no mention of skin color in the article.

    • Hans Ecker says:

      Garbage. You silly bourgeois liberals need to cut the racist crap. To you, everything is racist. When you get up in the morning do you look under your bed for racists?

      Yeah, you do get that thrown back in your face.

      And while we’re at it, we don’t buy this crap that Obomba is telling us that some of his best friends are gun owners.

      Plain and simple: Obomba wants to register gun owners as a prelude to gathering a list of where the guns can be found, which is a prelude to gun confiscation.

      And Obomba is a liar for claiming otherwise.

    • Rick Black says:

      The use of EO’s do not supersede the Bill of Rights or invalidate those Rights as per the Constitution. That is an impeachable offense. Not to mention a sure fire way to start an insurrection. The only way to get around the Bill of Rights is if Congress repeals them.

    • You are not quite all there, are you? This is Daley class thuggery at it’s finest. But as a racist you refuse to admit it. And make NO mistake YOU ARE a RACIST, it is YOU WHO PULLED THE RACE CARD on THIS ONE

      Within the scope of his duties does not include bypassing Congress and commiting treason by saying all he needs is U.N. permission to mobilize our troops. His Executive Orders only relate to the Federal agency’s they can’t dictate policy that affects American’s individually.
      He lies evertime he opens his mouth. He has not kept any of his campaign promises. No taxes for people making less than 400,000 remember that whopper. Everybody that makes 20,000 has seen a payroll tax. The Affordable Health Care Act Ha What a misnomer that is. He said don’t worry about the NDAA I’ll veto it then he signed it midnight on New Years Eve and then we find out he insisted that the part about Americans being indefinatly detained be included.
      He clearly has an agenda and it’s not about making this country stronger, everyone of his policy’s has weakened this country. He is breaking the law by not passing a budget since 2010. Clinton was impeached for lying about a blowjob. Obama has lied about Bin Laden, Bengazi, Fast and Furious ETC.. He is the most divisive President we have had. He makes everything about race if you don’t agree with him. He uses Bully tactics against the Republicans for not going along with his agenda. Have we ever seen a President so protected by the Media as Obama is? They don’t dare say something bad about him. Compare how they ripped Bush apart for everything and they say nothing negative about Obama. There’s got to be scare tactics and thuggery behind that.He said Fox news is hurting him because they don’t demonize Republicans for not listening to him. Fox is the only News that dares to question his actions and now he goes after them. What do you call that?
      What about transparency? He does all of his signing of Executive orders in secret and has prosecuted whistleblowers extensively. His DHS has stated that returning vets and 2nd amendment proponents are the greatest threat to the nation. WTF is that about? What about DHS ordering 7000 AR 15’s stating they are the best home defence weapon and yet they are trying to ban them for us? Thats the height of hypocracy. Not to mention the billions of hollow point bullets DHS has ordered that can’t be used in any country other that the US because they are banned by the Geneva Convention. Need I go on I could because there is so much wrong with this Administration that it is positively screaming for impeachment. Do some research before you just spew bias Media retoric. I am so sick of people who don’t have a clue what’s really going on. THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES

      You are such a pathetic race-baiter. Yeah right, the writer is “playing off the fact that the president is black.” You apparently have no knowledge of history or what Chicago thuggery even means. Your comment is nothing more than a pathetic attempt to attack the writer and distract from the actual topic of the article. Pick up a high school level history book for yourself and read about Chicago thuggery. Then come back and let us know how that relates to the president being black. ;)

    • Ray Marotta says:

      First, he’s not black. He’s high yellow.
      Second, Let the clown try and confiscate weapons. He isn’t man enough to take them himself and you must remember, fool, that law abiding gun owners outnumber the Military, the National Guard, the DHS, and, every law enforcement agency in the country combined and, more than half of the above mentioned agencies people would side with the citizens and take their weapons with them. This entire administration would be standing in front of a wall tied to posts in very short order.
      Third, the president’s duties revolve around keeping the oath he swore. Of course, as a liberal democrat, he wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped him across the face.

    • rod larson says:

    • Dearl Hardy says:

      by the way the president is just as white as he is black and your comment is completely ignorant. Just because someone doesn’t agree with him doesn’t mean they dont like him because he is black. I could careless if he is purple he has no right to ignore the US Constitutaion…

      some of you people act like just because obummer won the election last year that he now has the power to do as he pleases and that ends the discussion… Nothing could be further from the truth.

      The fact is yes he got more liberals out to vote on election day and somehow won the election, but those same people also voted for congress which by the way is split with republicans and democrats…

      That is why we have a REPUBLIC and NOT a democracy as so many wrongly state. A democracy votes for a leader who make all final decisions, a REPUBLIC has 3 branches of government all elected by the people for the people and OF the people according to the Constitution created by the founding fathers. The ideas of leading the country are supposed to be created by the President which then proposes them to the congress, who then listen to the people they represent and vote accordingly to those people which gives each person representation on the direction of the country. That is how a Republic functions.

      You people that think once the election is over the side that lost no longer has a say in the matter are sadly mistaken and better hope that is never the case in our country, just remember the next election will probably switch back to the republican side and you will certainly want a voice in everything that is passed then, right?

      Use your head that is why we are the greatest free country in the world we all have a say in the process. And with that freedom is the bill of rights which our forefathers believed were endowed by our creator and the 2nd amendment is that we as a people have the right to Bear arms with any infringement by the government. Now if you use them illegally i.e. murder etc then you face the penalty set forth by the law but you have the right to own it legally no matter what it shoots like or looks like because we are a free people.

      It was also because they had experienced Tyranny by a government that they couldn’t defend themselves from and never wanted that possibility to occur in America like it did in England and later in Germany when Hitler took away their guns “to protect the children” he said.

      Folks you better think twice before you start supporting the ideas of giving up your “rights” as Americans! We are a blessed nation and we have laws to deal with anyone that uses a gun illegally but never give up your rights and trust others to protect you as you would your own family. When you do freedom is on the verge of total collapse. And that is giving up any freedom whether it is speech or guns or any others. That is what makes us the greatest Nation in the world and nobody could ever conquer us from outside or within as long as we follow the constitution and never allow any president or anyone else to ever use their so called powers, which they dont have, to take away the freedoms given within it.

    • When you grow up you’ll realize that the term “Chicago thuggery” has nothing to do with race.

    • wow the first thing out of your mouth is he is a racist??? commie obammie is a real douchebag and i reject your charges of racism. where is he from? what is his real name? he is using a stolen SSN, so who is he and where is he from?

    • How come he has a Connecticut SSN though? It shows up as that in E-verify and through another SSN lookup service. He was born in Kenya (his wife even stated so on a interview early on) and a citizen of Indonesia for a time, at least up until people started catching on he was a totally illegitimate candidate THEN it “changed”. Early copies of his book even stated so in the front dust cover. He is a FRAUD, end of discussion.

    • Joel Holden says:

      What does race have to do with this? Obama is once again violating the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights through Executive Orders. It’s clear that the vast majority of Americans are not interested in gun control. This has nothing to do with racism. Just another example of what an idiot Obama is and rather than encourage him, he should be impeached because he refuses to enforce the laws of this nation which is his primary responsibility. He’s an idiot and so are his supporters.

    Chicago thuggery…you hit the nail right on the head.

  6. If you disagree with what he’s doing, you might be a racist. The MSM, as usual,turns a blind eye to his style of governing, or calls his edicts, “presidential”, especially, Chris Matthews. I wonder if that will give him a tingle up and down his leg?

  7. O.bama simply wants to be better than Hitler at taking away rights!

    • You are 100% right!
      Hitler disarmed the Germans that were not members of Gestapo or of the Hitler Youth movement, He disarmed the Jews, and other ethnic groups, and then he took away the German’s Freedom of Speech, and naturally it was so easy to take over Germany.
      By the same taken when Obama was running in the fall, he took away our freedom of speech, because I was not able to write anything negative for Obama regarding his failures for high unemployment, highest national deficit, and overwhelming middle class taxes.
      To that effect he has taken away The Freedom of Speech from the American Citizens!
      Congratulations to those who voted for this new King! IMPEACH THE BASTARD!

  8. Trevor Eakes says:

    Wow, thank you for so precisely describing the threat in accurate and factual detail instead of using scare tactics and hyped slogans to inspire your readers. And ya! Chicago can go to hell. Since when were they apart of America anyway? And while we’re at it, those communist sympathizing cities of Portland and San Francisco can take a hike to. This is real America.

    Way to listen to the American people Republican (emphasis on Republican) congress! Well at least the real American people meaning about half of the population of our country. Who cares about others opinions anyway? Not like they’ll be reading this wholesome article. Great reporting Hawkins. I found your vast and scholarly, unbiased knowledge of ‘Chicago thuggery 101′ truly insightful.

  9. There is nothing liberal about Obama He tries to pass “license” off as freedom- and while he dismisses individual rights which is a fundamental of liberalism. The so called progressive liberal is are a strange new animal -a left wing fascist who wants more than anything to centralize power. If you look up the word fascist the only essential they lack is that they don’t come from the right, and they hate our country. They love the Future America which is perfect of course, and that is their nationalistic love. The progressive is progressing towards this perfect America. Like any good Fascist, they are authoritarian, intolerant, racist and extremely demagogic. The left can spawn fascism. The political spectrum is a circle not a line and the two extremes meet at Fascism. We used to learn that in school but that is a dangerous idea because now we need to define fascism in a way that cannot include the left no matter how fascist they act. They aren’t even like the socialist liberals in Europe. The American Progressive is a Fascist movement being sold to us through our mainstream media. When are we going to wake up? I don’t think we will. Like most cultures under the spell of fascism, we won’t know or admit what happened until it is over.

    • You had better relearn your history. This IS LIBERALISM at it’s BEST. Conservativism is embodied by small government and limited intervention in the lives of the citizens. Liberalism is the direct incursion into the lives of the citizens by an overly large government, a government that ignores the rights of the individual for the rights of a nonexistent collective. Obama is the BIGGEST Liberal there is! Liberalism leads to big government which inturn leads to facism, communism and suppression of ALL civil rights.

  11. Impy Lizardi says:

    Really not to worried about what Obama threat is. When people really want something (not right) they act as 2 year old babies. When told NO, they will through a fit. They should work with the laws on books now, instead of spending more of our money to add news. If something doesn’t work, I do think you should try something new. Yet try the old first. Plus it seems as though everyone keeps forgetting, if another wishes harm “they don’t have to have a gun.” They are making guns the issue when infact it is the person. Which we can be helpless to. If you look at it that way you need to make new laws on cars,cell phone,planes, drugs. well you get it. That list can go on & on.

    • Ann Namouse says:

      The problems with the laws on the books are that there are so many of them that even the government really is unsure what is legal and what isn’t. Proof just look at all the specialized law enforcement units. Oh and do not forget we the citizens are suppose to be aware of them all.

    • David Miller says:

      Throw a fit- like Hillary at the Benghazi hearing.

    • Not worried? that’s like handing a baboon a loaded .45 and saying “what could happen?” because that is EXACTLY what has happened. Come back when he is harvesting your blood to send to the Muslims without your consent… and the tell us he isn’t a threat… Hitler Ran brothels for the SS, if there were pregnancies, and the infants didn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes, their blood was drained and used for injured SS troops. Any other troops were left to die. Obama is no different.

      • Tamara Hurt says:

        It is truly a terrible shame that every single time I read an article referencing Obama the hate mongers come out of the wood work. The fact of the matter is regardless of whatever precise political information or known knowledge you may have, the fact of the matter is this country is in a state of emergency and guess what? It happened long before Obama arrived. The jobs…over seas, the bank bailouts weren’t truly needed, wallstreet it just never ends! The quality of life and products American made…diminished to nothing and practically worthless! Pretty soon the dollar will be worth NOTHING yet basically everyone on this thread is arguing about is skin tone, acting like a king, comparisons to Hitler and the like…really? Is your life that boring and stressful that you surf the internet just to leave message like the anonymous fool you are? You’re also probably the people that were rejected on craigslist flagging people’s ad’s as well. The ‘powers that be’ that are in charge don’t give a DAMN about you, what you know or your current updated knowledge of political affairs! Look in your streets, are your neighbors and kids hungry? Are they able to pay their bills? You don’t know right! Yet you come on this thread bashing Obama! Be a solution instead of part of the damn PROBLEM with your nick picking! OMG REALLY!!!

        • Well the problem IS Obama, not skin tone as you put it. It isn’t because he’s black (he’s only half black btw, don’t know where the other half you added came from) it’s because he’s only doing harm to the country, tanking the economy with excessive govt. spending, and basically shitting on the constitution and our rights. He’s committed no less that 20+ impeachable offenses and Clinton got impeached over a BJ. How could anyone support someone like that without being brain-dead? His “common sense” gun control sprouts from a movement started by the KKK, gun control was implemented first by klansmen looking to keep the black man from having guns. It’s true and easily found if you look it up. He is only interested in serving the power elite and his own interests at the expense of his constituents and citizens. We need to look elsewhere though according to you, for some reason but it’s ok if Obama does or goes along with what you listed as “problems”. It’s exactly what you are saying. It’s pretty cut and dried he’s done things that would have gotten others impeached long ago but it’s ok for Obama. He was born in Kenya and verified by multiple people TILL he started his presidential run. Let’s let him slide though right? It would go against the touchy/feely, pc, feelgood to actually call him out for violating his oath of office, international laws, constitutional laws, and purposefully torching the economy and blaming the other party on a measure he enacted (the “sequester”). That would be racist right? Not if you actually give a shit about your country but we’re all racist or only “looking at skin tone” if we do that according to you. He’s just as much white as he is black so quit with the “everyone’s hatin because he’s black” tired apologist remark. He’s a criminal and a fraud, that’s why we want the trash gone. You’re nitpicking and commenting about people nitpicking over problems he created or furthered but want everyone to turn a blind eye and stop? Irony is a bitch huh?

    Fear-mongering baloney of the worst sort.

    • fear mongering, you say? not at all. i dare say, wer’e only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

    • Randy Kuhlman says:

      I disagree with you. Is it not true that Obama himself stated he would use whatever power the office held to get gun legislation? Has he not went around Congress in the past? Most importantly, why is it that guns are the issue? Every shooter in the past 50 years has had mental illness. Why aren’t we tackling that problem first? Because the government could care less about the people killed. They don’t care about them or you or me or any of our RIGHTS. They care about control. The purpose of the Second Amendment was to allow people to defend themselves against each other and the government if need be. To ban a rifle simply because it looks scary is wrong, even more so when the very people leading the way to banning are not gun experts by any means. Why not consult with firearms leaders? Because they are afraid to be told the truth: An AR has no more lethality than a regular .223. The bullets go the same speed, roughly the same distance, and cost the same to shoot. The difference is one looks badass and identical to the military version. That is it.

      • Do not forget that EVERY mass shooter in recent time, except the Muslim at Fort Hood were registered Democrats, OR threatened Republicans with death. Also note that what the Liberals insist on calling assault weapons are responsible for LESS deaths than bare hands, as is borne out by FBI crime stats.

        • They are responsible for under one HALF OF ONE PERCENT, UNDER .5% of all gun crime ever. EVER. What you said about mass shooters is also true. Thank you and Randy for spreading truth to those who are still asleep.

  13. Mike Bond says:

    I voted for comrade Obama in the first election so I’m not racist at all but hat he has done to our constitution is treasonous! Do your research you morons. Start with the NDAA, check NDRP, then cruise by hr 347! Open your eyes and read the NDAA! That is exactly the tyranny in government our framers wanted us to protect ourselves from! Sandy hoax! The NDAA shares our ballistic missile secret information with the Russians. Read it! Or you just to busy being blind sheep and just like complaining.

    • Chris Brauning says:

      Lighten up Mikey. We are not morons and we are well informed. Otherwise we wouldn’t be on here reading your rants. We’re all in this together so stop the name calling. BTW I didn’t vote for him in either election. What’s that make you?

      • Chris, you are a condescending pig, and need to grow up. At least Mike has the backbone to own up to his mistake, and has made an attempt to rectify it. You on the other hand are using that to divide rather than unify. THAT makes YOU lower than Obama.

    • Bravo Mike!
      Like you, I also voted for Obama on his first term, but not on his second term, because I realized that this man does not care about America. He cares only for his skin and his agenda, which is treasonous.
      That is why I say that no one can name me A RACIALLY PREJUDICED!
      They can name me a PATRIOT, unlike Obama who has finally shown his true face of a TYRANT!

      • Joey Bonier says:

        HOLY CRAP!! CAPS LOCK MAKES YOU LOOK DUMB.

      • Randy Kuhlman says:

        So, you and Mike both admit that you only voted for Obama the first time because he is black and so you can say you aren’t racist? If not, then tell me one thing, just one reason that made logical sense to vote for him. Experience? He had NONE. Oh, I’m sorry, nearly three years as a junior Senator having drafted no legislation. So, then he must have had military experience? Nope. Business experience? Not unless you count that “community Organizer” as “business” experience, and that is lacking. So why, other than race, did you vote for him. Sorry, he got elected because of fools like you.

      • DO NOT try to claim the title Patriot just yet. You have four years to make up for,,, We have been fighting against the despot since before the first “delection”… You have time to earn the title, but are not ready, just yet. You see we have seen too many pissed off Liberals who are angry at being disenfranchised by the despot. This does not bring them into the fold. It just means they are angry, and feel hurt. It doesn’t mean that there are not any future Patriots among them however. BUT REAL Patriots are educated about what America is all about. Making the mistake of voting for the despot to begin with is a statement of ignorance of either what America is about or what the despot was about or worst of all, BOTH. The enemy of my enemy IS NOT my friend, just a temporary ally until they prove themself trustworthy.

    This article gives me some hope that the people are not yet willing to give up their rights.

    Something to ponder for those in support of gun control:

    How does a criminal behave when he knows you’re unarmed? Laws don’t stop criminals.

    • Joey Bonier says:

      This doesn’t unarm anyone or change the opinion of criminals at all. It’s just background checks and 10 bullets. Calm down, people.

      • Caped Ryder says:

        what if you need 11 shots to save your family ?

      • Yeah, right! And Hitler’s apologist just said “It’s just registration. Calm down, people”.

      • Yeah, and next it’ll be “We’re not taking away your free speech. It’s just the new gun laws you’re not allowed to talk about. Calm down, people.”

        And then it’ll be “It’s just a harmless search of your houses; if you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to worry about, right? Calm down, people.”

        And then next, “It’s just the evil gun violators we’re ‘relocating’… oh, and the subversives who broke the ban on talking against the new gun laws… oh, and also the corrupt ones who complained about the house-to-house searches… They’re the only ones we’re putting in prison. The rest of you are perfectly safe. Calm down, people!”

        You see, the ‘slippery slope’ is as real a phenomenon as gravity, and just as relentless. Once you step out onto the slope, the only direction is down. Wake up in time to preserve America for your kids and grandkids.

You are missing the whole point of what Obama is doing to our rights and our country. His universal background checks are nothing more than registration, limiting the number of rounds in a mag. will out law so many weapons we now have that it will be so close to confiscation that when they take that next step they won’t have many guns left to pick up. I don’t know why I’m wasting my breath on you, people that think like you do are the problem in our country. Can you just say Baa, Baa, and wag your fluffy tail…

  17. Zack Davis says:

    Exactly right, Kathy. While almost everyone is still obsessed with slinging names at the so-called left and right, this is equivalent to the point in our evolution when we thought the earth was flat.

    Communism, for instance, is nothing but a construct invented by the Rothschild banking cartel, who financed Marx, Engels and the Bolsheviks so they could carry out a 100 year old vendetta against the Czar. In the end, it IS a circle–both parties serve the power elite/military industrial complex agenda–which is world domination in every possible way. Obama serves them, as do the Bushes, the Clintons, et al. They ALL do.
    Fox and MSNBC.

    The NWO agenda has always been to create opposing factions to fight each other, so as to distract everyone from the fact that both supposedly opposite factions are actually serving this same invisible master. We will never stand a chance of counteracting this unless we wake the flock up.
    It’s starting to happen, but I groan every time I read someone say ‘Comrade Obama’ or something showing a similar lack of awareness.
    Wake up everyone.

Well, if we’re racist, then tell me this, what is the left if they don’t think Condolezza Rice is suitable for office? I guess that makes the left racist AND sexist. This group of Obama worshippers want everyone to accept a black president, but they keep throwing the race card out. Obviously they don’t see past skin color themselves.

  22. Danny Ross says:

    n 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. By 1987 that figure had risen to 61,911,000.

    .Germany established gun control1 in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, without the means to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979 under General Idi Amin Dada, 300,000 Christians and political rivals of Amin2, unable to defend them­selves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. Between 1975 and 1993, 2,035,000 “educated” people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: at least 56 million5… that we know about. The places are all too familiar: Stalin’s Russia, Nazi Germany, Communist China, Uganda, Rwanda, Guatemala, Cambodia, Armenia, The Sudan, Bosnia and many more.

  23. Dan Meyer says:

    A big question in this whole uproar is “Who NEEDS an AR-15?”

    I have that answer. 4 Americans who died in Benghazi could have used AR-15s. In the hands of those ex Navy Seals they would have made a DIFFERENCE. If our government doesn’t see fit to provide our Ambassador in a Muslim country enough security, enough firearms to defend themselves… How can I trust them to leave me with the ability to defend my family.

    Who needs an AR-15 or any other range of weapons we see fit to own to defend ourselves and our families? I do.

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.” – Thomas Jefferson (quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764. That was 249 years ago.)

    • Will Shirley says:

      Yeah! Just go to Monticello and look at Jefferson’s collection of assault weapons, cannons, shoulder mounted RPGs…. he was a GOOD American, except when he was raping his slaves to create more half-breed slaves. Then he was a bit “testy”.
      Ya know the people who died in Benghazi HAD assault weapons and armed guards. doncha? They wanted more but they were not defenceless. Chances are slim and next to none that a few more guns could protect them against an armed insurrection. The question is not if weapons should be in a war zone with no government but if assault weapons should be on the streets of Phoenix and Seattle. If you see a clear correlation between Benghazi and Philly then things are much worse than anybody could handle with a few more guns.

      • Randy Kuhlman says:

        Actually, despite his far-fetched reference, he has a point. Why do we need AR’s? Better yet, what makes them so much more deadly? The answer to the first question is that we have a right to them because they are semi-automatic and, to the second question, they are no more lethal than a plain jane .223. The difference is that they look scary and appear tactical, although you could take a regular .22, .223, .308, etc. etc. and be tactical.

        • WHY? we SHOULD have M16s and M249s and true M4s WHY? Ever read the federalist papers? The documents that go hand in hand with the US Constitution. You see they explain that the Second Amendment is meant to ARM the citizens EQUAL to The MILITARY so that the unorganized Militia is as heavily armed to be equal to the military so that the Military can NOT be used against the PEOPLE.

      —————————————–
      from: THE SECOND AMENDMENT BY Sen. Larry Craig, (R-Idaho) U.S. Senate, June 6, 2000:
      The first right of every human being is the right of self-defense. Without that right, all other rights are meaningless. The right of self-defense is not something the government bestows upon its citizens. It is an inalienable right, older than the Constitution itself. It existed prior to government and prior to the social contract of our Constitution.
      It is the right that government did not create and therefore it is a right that under our Constitution the government simply cannot take away. The framers of our Constitution understood this clearly. Therefore, they did not merely acknowledge that the right exists. They denied Congress the power to infringe upon that right.
      ————————————-

      Blood has not been shed on foreign soil for our rights to be abolished by those
      who disrespect those who whom paid the ultimate price.

  25. Tom Carvelli says:

    I am tired of seeing defenseless children and teachers killed. They have no chance of survival when the shooting starts. The school puts up a sign telling the shooter nobody will be there to stop them. The gun free zone then becomes a killing zone.
    The only thing that has stopped the mass shootings is a “bullet”. If there was a gun available at every school the “bullet” would be immediately available. Unarmed teachers have given their lives trying to protect the children.They do have the will to confront the killers. I do not however think arming teachers is the answer. Having a gun available for teachers to use if necessary is what should be done. Give the teachers the ability to protect the children. That alone could have affected the outcome of every mass shooting.

    • Will Shirley says:

      and we all know that teachers never go psychotic, right? Give the coaches guns to go along with their porn magazines and free beer for the kiddies…. geez. Let’s put up gray walls, razor wire, armed guards, metal detectors… all because we don’t want to spend “good money” on the mentally ill and we also don’t want anyone to wait for their guns. This will make us all “safe”. Let’s raise the kids in exactly the same climate as Iraq or Russia… then we’ll be 100% sure they will grow up to be freaks.

      • Randy Kuhlman says:

        You can’t argue against arming staff by using the whole “well they don’t go crazy do they”. If that is the case, then we should disarm the police and military. After all, 6 deployments will give you nightmares and a mistrust of people. You might go off.

        You redeemed yourself with the lacking of mental health treatment. Kudos.

      Chicago has BANNED firearms yet has the HIGHEST homicide rate of School children in the nation! GUN CONTROL DOES NOT WORK. Sandy Hook was a hoax.

    So Bush gets a free pass on the Executive Order he passed called the Patriot Act. One guy tries to blow up his shoes on a plane and now we all have to take off our shoes and be humiliated, seen naked, have our stuff possibly stolen from crooked airline personal etc. We haven’t had more than 30 days in decades that have gone by without a massive shooting where women and children were killed by legally purchased machine guns.And nothing has been done until now. The laws that are being passed ( and they are going to be) are to prevent MORE people from purchasing auto-matic and semi-auto matic guns. NO ONE IS COMING TO TAKE YOUR GUNS YOU DUMB ASS HICKS SO STOP SAYING THAT. They are trying to prevent more psychopaths from being able to purchase say an OOZI or Ak-47 that has been in mental hospital , on meds, off meds, been in jail, etc, that might kill someone , maybe even you. REPEAT NO ONE IS COMING TO TAKE YOUR GUNS . Get that? They are passing laws to prevent people that should NOT have guns in the first place from getting them. End of Story ., Stop spreading this BUllSHITE !

    • You’re the dumb ass! He’s trying to take our Assault weapons from law abiding citizens who have the right by the constitution to posses them, in case his dictator judgements come to war with the people.
      No law is going to stop a killer, sane or insane. He could have driven a truck into a buss, or killed them driving into the lines as they waited to load up and go home after school. Guns also stop many killings, but they won’t tell you about them, cause then they would have no reason to start the first phase of disassembling the constitution. The problem isn’t the guns but our acceptance of mentally ill roaming the streets off their meds, depressed people needing help yet not offered any. You can take a blow gun, a sling shot or bow and arrow and achieve the same deaths… We need to stop attacking the constitution and start elevating public mental facilities to help the troubled minds out there today, cause no one is taking the guns away from the public, without a revolution. Seems to be what today’s dictators want.

    • C. Wayne Oliver says:

      Mr. Baxter; Point of clarification. Had Bush’s Patriot Act been an Executive Order it would not have been called an “ACT”; it would have been called Executive Order [No.xxxxx]

      Remember when Bush pushed this Patriot Act through Congress? Remember how loud and long the Progressives in the media (I should have just said the media, huh?) yelled about our right to privacy et al? But when Obama took office and expanded those powers you could have heard a pin drop – nothing but crickets. Now there’s a free pass.

      But you are correct, no one is coming for our guns. That will come much later, after mandatory registration – gotta know who has them first. So first they’ll call for registration of “A-Salt” weapons. Well that’s OK, I don’t have one. (BTW Uzi’s and AK-47’s already require registration). Then they’ll require the registration of shotguns. OK there too. Then they’ll require it for handguns, not so OK, but it’s going to protect our children, right? And then they’ll call for the registration of “all the rest”. Oh, alright – what’s one more registration?

      Soon after, they’ll want to “inspect” our guns – sounds good – we all want safe weapons, right? Next they’ll want us to store them in a safe at the gun range – that’s good because I don’t like loading them in the car every time I go shooting. Then they’ll stop by the range one day and pick them up for “safe keeping”. And make no mistake, it isn’t “no one” who’ll come for them, it’ll be the government. Governments just love complacent citizens – ask the Jews and Armenians. Oh! And for citizens without guns, such as yourself, they’ll give you well starched brown shirts, teach you to march in straight lines, and give you a mean-looking black “A-Salt” weapon. – ironic, eh?

      According to the CDCP approximately 14,000 children die in traffic accidents in the US each year. If only we registered cars and kept psychopaths from getting them. Oops – We do.

      Funny, the Patriot Act passed the Congress overwhelmingly and was extended by Obama. There are not mass shooting every month, as you seem to believe. And most importantly, you cannot purchase or own a “maching gun” legally without an FFL and have not been able to do so since 1934. Get your facts straight you uneducated city slicker (as you so quickly decided everyone against your argument were “dumb ass hicks”). You want to prevent psychopaths from getting firearms? Then fund mental health. Leave my rights alone. I suggest that you actually research this issue before you speak. Repeat, research first, then speak.

    • Patriot Act ( follow along ) ACT is the key word, is a law, PASSED by congress and would have passed with or without Bush as the number of votes it passed by would have over rode his veto. And now lets look further, Congress was DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED can you say VETO OVER RIDE? and the next step the Patriot act of 1995… oops did I say 1995? why yes I did!

  27. Bill Reeves says:

    Isn’t it funny how the liberals try to take away our God-given and (2nd Amendment affirmed) rights to protect ourselves under the guise of the “need” or lack thereof of assault style weapons vs. critter hunting rifles. This canard of an argument is only used to make the liberal appear to stand for the 2nd Amendment while chipping away at it at every turn. The Constitution in general or the 2nd Amendment specifically does not make any such distinction and does not even mention critter hunting rifles. However, the 2nd Amendment does mention the term “militia”. That term, you must acknowledge, would refer to potentially shooting people vs. shooting critters. That is what the 2nd Amendment is all about; our right to protect ourselves from “people”, not “critters”. I don’t need protection against critters. The historical records are replete with statements by the founders on why or why not we should have the right to bear arms. It was nearly unanimous that we should have that right, but for what reasons? To protect the citizenry from enemies both foreign and domestic as well as the potential tyranny of government. One of many statements made by the founders in the context of an armed citizenry was, “When the government fears the people, there is freedom; when the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” Conclusion: even if we consider what is being sold today are truly “assault” weapons (which they are not), it is clear that the 2nd Amendment is protecting that right just as much if not more than the right to own rifles designed for sport hunting.

  28. iamjuly4 says:

    How bout this… “Assault Weapon” I would say anything that discharges a lead round out of a rifled barrel at supersonic speeds is an “assault rifle”. Who cares if it “looks like” a “military” weapon. The real question is what caliber? The focus of this whole initiative speaks volumes of the ignorance of the perpetrators. They don’t even understand the concept of “assault weapon” or “high-power/high-capacity”. Ridiculous and amateur. On one hand we have the stake of a nation at hand – the cornerstone of our freedom lies in the balance – while on the other hand, the perps are discussing weapons based on APPEARANCE. I’ll bet they would want to outlaw the grill lighter I saw at Bass Pro yesterday. Its a miniature M-16. When you pull the trigger, flame comes out of the barrel. Yep – better outlaw that too, cause it “looks” like an assault weapon.

    Oh and another thing… I’m hearing these “high-and-mighty’s” say over and over “I don’t understand why anyone needs a bushmaster AR15.” OK, so when did my constitutional rights pivot on whether or not you could wrap your mind around them? I say put the entire democratic party through a gun awareness course… followed by US Constitution 101… at least then they might come off sounding a little bit educated as they toss around our freedoms like so many toys.

      It isn’t all Democrats. I know several that are against bans because of the inherent risks. It makes no sense to say that an “assault” rifle is any that fires lead out of a rifled barrel at supersonice speeds. That is every rifle out there. And no, certain calibers do not count. Ban one and you allow for ALL to be banned.

      We already have made “common sense” laws back in 1934 when we made it illegal to own automatic firearms and destructive weapons (i.e. grenade launcher) without an FFL or registering it (in the case of the destructive weapons clause).

      • Sorry fella but they have already banned rifles over 50 caliber, you really need to learn the facts and get with the program. And the GCA of 34 did not ban automatic weapons. The GCA of 68 didn’t either, it simply TAXED them. An FFL NEVER gave the ability to own them. you need to educate yourself on this, before making such proclamations.

    I am with the majority of the people here in saying that folks need to dispense with the “race” issue once and for all. It matters not if Obama is black, white, green, purple or magenta. He is treading into territory he needs to keep himself out of, and is simply pushing the people to rid the country of his anti-American ways. Next, “Chicago thuggery.” Let us examine that, shall we? If I recall, the top 5 original Chicago thugs had names like Capone, Dillinger, O’Bannion, Moran and Accardo. Well, would ya look at that? Not one of them is even remotely black, yet they are all Chicago thugs. Stifle with that crap already. As far as banning high round capacity and/or fully automatic weapons, let’s consider a few things. First, it has long been in the news that even the police are woefully disadvantaged against organized and sometimes even individual criminals who are better armed and without the restrictions that the police have on them when it comes to the rules of engagement. In other words, criminals have had their hands on those self-same assault weapons for years now. Second, how many of these heinous shootings are committed by an actual gun owner (one who legally owns a registered automatic and/or high capacity weapon)? Look it up. Finally, it has been proven that we as a country are, in fact, more vulnerable to a domestic invasion than we had ever believed prior to 9/11. With the majority of our armed forces scattered around the world at any given time, and all but SWAT, HRT, and ESU type units lacking rue ground combat training, we are an open target for a massive military invasion by way of Canada, Cuba, or Mexico. Would it not make sense, then, for the average, law-abiding, properly trained and licensed gun owner to be well stocked with military grade weapons and ammunition so as to repel foreign invaders on US soil? Please give these things some thought. I hope that I made some impact here today.

    • Your firearms logic is flawed. law enforcement is not restricted in any way shape or form on what they can or can not use in the performance of their lawful duties. If they want bazookas so be it. Your training comparison is also incorrect, Our specialized law enforcement teams are made up of people trained in these battle ground regions. Stop using fallacies that are so easily disproven, or worse, manipulated, that they can be turned against us. With your words alone, and no outside research anyone unaware of the meaning of the Second Amendment would think the best move would be to remove such weapons from civilian ownership to prevent misuse, which is exactly what is happening.
      Sadly your impact by not thinking about what you have said has given the morons, fools and the rest of the gungrabbers lot more fuel to run their machine on.

    When the president of the USA acts like a dictator more than a president, it is time to change the abilities of one person to control the population of America! America was born because of gun control and the idiot in the white house is going to end America over gun rights!! It is a sad day for America that America is run by a TYYRANT hitler wannabe!!IF WE HAVE TO GIVE UP OUR RIGHTS IN ANY WAY, IT IS THE END OF A DEMOCRACY!!

  32. This fool is out of control and needs to be stopped at ANY cost, When did he become King, He does need congressional approval before he can do anything, EVERYTHING he has done do date with out it is illegal and in violation of the US Constitutions, Obama should be tried for TREASON, MURDER and then LYNCHED for being a traitor, Lets NOT forget the fact that he is NOT even an American citizen and has NO RIGHT to be in the oval office in the first place, Barry was born in Kenya and educated in Indonesia,He also has 5 social security numbers, one belonging to someone who died in the late 1800’s, Obama is a FRAUD, He has spent over one million TAX PAYER DOLLARS to hide all of his personal information all the way back to his child hood and ya don’t so something so SHADY unless you have something to hide! Obama is the biggest FRAUD in American presidential history!

  33. It should concern everyone that we might not have the right to bare arms, as a private citizen in America. America 2013:Post Desert Storm,decades of continuing WAR;International Terrorism & Domestic Terrorism all imminent.If we are changing the Constitution. Then I might add: when a nation is fully engaged in a multicountry war, fighting international radical insurgencies, then each citizen would be considered negligent “not” to be in possession of a firearm.An arsenal might not be necessary-but to be psychologically comfortable in protecting yourself, your loved ones, possession is eminent.

  34. Obama is a rouge President illegally ignoring his oath of office and pledge to uphold the Constitution.If he is so in love with the Muslim and Marxist way of life and rule he is welcome to leave and reside somewhere that would please his sense of oppression more and leave us the heck to our God given rights and conservative capitalism.And for the intellectually deprived liberal whiners who throw the racism charge with such flippant ease;be aware that your shame is that you take the value of the real charge of racism and relegate it to background noise when it is needed because you have worn it out and abused it to the point where no one even listens anymore.Now we hear “Racism and roll our eyes and go “Oh yea another case of racism what else is new”Jessie Jackson,Sharpton and you other lightweight race pimps have killed an important issue and replaced it with scorn.Nice work idiots!

  37. Cody Hicks says:

    1st, My weapons are personal defense weapons suitable for close quarters defense and have never assaulted anyone.
    2nd, The second amendment is a right and has nothing to do with need.
    3rd, The first amendment has been under attack for years also. They just started with religion but will get around to free speech and the press. Just give them time.

  38. Zack look out your window!

    Is the black crown vic still parked out there, or maybe it’s the cable truck :-)

    But all kidding aside, HAS anyone noticed how the Obomination has done NOTH’THING to butt heads with the MIC?

    There’s a sign;[)

  39. Tim Teinert says:

    We have a right to bear arms, and I am not aware of anyone who has ever looked down the barrel of gun who does not agree ;) I don’t understand by what facts the libbies have to stand on to enfringe on our rights to protect our families? Can someone from Chicago please post and tell us what it’s like to live in murder capital USA? The facts are overwhelming.

  40. Brian Taylor says:

    Mr. Obama is going to discover what some others in his position have learned to their sorrow: It is possible to bite off more than you can chew – and he’ll find that Americans who believe in their 2nd Amendment rights won’t go down his gullet easily.

  41. The more important, and much less quoted, text is the Preamble to the Bill of Rights:

    “Congress OF THE United States
    begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday
    the Fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

    THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution

    RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.:

    ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.”

    The purpose of the Amendments was to prevent the federal government from “misconstruing or abusing its powers.” To accomplish this, “further declaratory and restrictive clauses” were being recommended. The Amendments, when adopted, did not create any so-called constitutional rights or grant the federal government any power over individual rights; they placed additional restraints and qualifications on the powers of the federal government concerning the rights enumerated in the Amendments.

    If the Second Amendment is read through the preamble, we find it was incorporated into the Bill of Rights as a “declaratory and restrictive clause” to prevent the federal government from “misconstruing or abusing its power” to infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms.

    Another way to understand the original intent of the Second Amendment is re-write it through the preamble:

    “Because a well-regulated Militia is necessary to the security of a free State, the federal government is expressly denied the power to infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear Arms.”

  42. Obama for queen! I mean Pope!

  43. ross ruddell says:

    im scared of obama and his chicago thuggery. after listing to our fellow citizens i have learned.. our country has voted for a thug and he will do anything he can to rape our wallets and our freedom… its really sad we have to listen to a school bully. so sad

  44. anthony bradford says:

    I’m pro 2nd Amendment, Gun, NRA, whatever….With that said, garbage is garbage. This article makes a claim but doesn’t present anything to support it. Pure trash article.

    This type on frivilous reporting is what’s running up the cost of ammo and frantic gun purchases.

  45. David Paster says:

    white people still pissed about a black president 5 years after the fact. for 95% of the posters on this story, there is nothing Obama could do that they would support because of his skin color. nothing! they try to rationalize their feelings with any and everything else imaginable, but deep down inside they know the truth and others who know that hatred when they see it, realizes it immediately. next will come the “if i don’t like Obama i must be racist” rant that they like to spew. it’s not the fact that you don’t like the man that lead people to that assertion, it’s the nature of that resentment. i hated George Bush as the president and honestly feel that he was the worst president in the history of America, but i did agree with the guy on some of the things he did. those very people who like to say they don’t hate Obama because he’s black; just let them talk long enough and i’ll guarantee that they’ll expose themselves. get over it people. he’s been elected twice. it’s a new America whether you like it or not. it’s 2013, not 1913. the country has forged forward and will never go back. the quicker you realize this reality the better off we’ll all be.

    • Jim Rockford says:

      Your brazen assertion that white people don’t like him simply because of his skin color shows you to be a racist.

      “…just let them talk long enough and i’ll guarantee that they’ll expose themselves.”

      Congratulations! You accomplished that feat in your first sentence.

    Fox. . . truthful??

  47. Jerry Murray says:

    President Obama claims we need to protect from harm, all children across America. Is this true? Not! It is a hipocritical statement as he recently renewed Planned Parenthood’s (Nazi-founded organization) funding to the tune of $500,000,000 (your tax dollars) to perform 3000+ abortions per day in America. Gun deaths according to one web site claim 85 deaths per day. This is a 35:1 ratio for government sponsored abortion killings versus gun deaths. The weapons of choice for clinical mass murders – scalpels, forceps and vacuums – this is no less Nazi death camps in clinical facilities behind closed doors – out of sight and out of mind in the United States of America. Want to talk gun control then talk the demise of abortion, because the crime of aborted children has reached God’s ears; therefore, His mighty hand of protection is off this nation. We can expect more carnage at every turn unless we repent. And no one is safe – save those walking closely with Christ. View, weep, pray and act for this evil to stop: http://www.abortioninstruments.com

  48. The world is full of idiots (the vast majority residing in America). I used to be a Republican until I witnessed several Republican governors throw in the towel and opt into the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as “Obamacare” by idiots). I was thinking of going over to the tea party; however, I think they are misguided. People are either to far left, or to far right. There is balance. We need some welfare (YES, SOME WELFARE PROGRAMS ARE GOOD). Senior citizens have worked all of their life, let’s take care of them. We don’t need gun control, I love the second amendment, but is he a “thug” or just a misguided liberal? The individual that wrote this article is merely a naive idiot that has no understanding of what a “thug” is. Obama just doesn’t fit that definition. Either way, my hare for stupidity is what allows me to put up 300 lbs at the gym…so keep it coming, I need some motivation…clowns

    David.. i know its hard to believe that all the whities in the country dont hate on blacks. lol that was funny to write… it doesnt have a dang thing to do with his color. it has to do with his lies. he has never followed through on a single thing he stated. when this happens, people wanna know who this feller is that said one thing and clearly did another. it took him waaay too long to produce a BC. or a family history for that matter. it wasnt his color that prompted the questions of his citizenship. but his actions. you are a ridiculous person. and racist. what started the whole -your not an american- thing wasnt his color. it was what he said. how he acted and what he promised this nation when he was “elected”. why are you so hot on taking people down a peg when you havent even really contributed in any way yourself? do some homework and find a US pres. that wasnt really a citizen. then, you have been useful. presidents are always the most scrutinized. we need a leader. not a liar. to say that no one demanded proof of citizenship of any other president is short sighted. and a grevious error in thinking.

  50. GoogleUser12 says:

    by the way, i wouldnt put too much stock in FOX being any more forthcoming than any other news station. if one checked, i bet they could find ties to the rothchild’s in every instance. want to know whats goin on, try a non US station. and no, i dont mean BBC. sheesh. heres a link just for the heck of it about the drones killin people. US people. its from FOX but ya’ll like em so. here ya go.

  51. Mike Tucker says:

    also it took obama over a yr to produce a birth certificate. if you was born in the USA it dont take a yr to order a BIRTH CERTIFICATE. you can go to VITAL RECORDS and get it same day r order 1 and have it within 7 to 10 days. SO THINK ABOUT THAT

  52. Brian Taylor says:

    Not only could I produce my birth certificate within a few days, I could produce my college records as well. The simple fact is, we just don’t know who this stain on American principles really is – or very much about him at all.

    But we’re learning.

  53. David Paster says:

    really Brian? please produce a record of your birth certificate and your college records on this blog by next Friday for me and the rest of these people to review. funny how we NEVER asked another president for his birth certificate or his college records, but demand this of this president. hmmm, what’s so different about this president from the others? but of course it has nothing to do with his skin color right. anything but right?
