Obama calls for strengthening gun rules, Reid says no time for debate
As President Obama added his voice to the push for stricter gun regulations in the wake of the Colorado movie theater massacre, the suggestion made a prompt thud on Capitol Hill when the top Senate Democrat said he can’t fit the gun control debate in the schedule.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, asked Thursday about Obama’s remarks on gun control the night before, said the Senate’s packed schedule precludes any action on firearms legislation. Asked if the Senate might debate the issue next year, Reid said, “Nice try.”
The president was vague in what specific measures he’d like to see enacted when he touched on the issue Wednesday evening in a speech to the National Urban League. He affirmed his belief in Americans’ right to own guns, but he singled out assault rifles as better suited for the battlefield.
“I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms,” Obama said. “But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not on the streets of our cities.”
It is felt, by ALL Conservative gun owners, that Barack Hussein Obama is going to try and legislate, by executive order if nothing else, more stringent laws against guns and gun owners.
I personally think Obama is a liar of the 1st order and despises guns and gun owners with every fiber of his being. I believe that his words in the above story are nothing more than *lip service* when he says, “I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms”
I have to say this, I personally am NOT a fan of fully automatic weapons, but that is just me. If you want a fully automatic rifle or machine-gun, and if you are willing to go to all of the trouble it takes to obtain one legally, and to keep it in your possession, and if you can afford the transfer fees and registration fees, by all means, get you an ammo burner.
Me? I’m more of a ‘one shot, one kill’ kind of guy, but again, that’s just me, regardless, I don’t believe one word that comes out of Obama’s mouth and I am convinced that if he wins a 2nd term he will become the most heavy-handed, anti-gun dictator on this planet!
I also have to wonder about this; “AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not on the streets of our cities.”
Is that not a *warning rattle*, a precursor of things to come from the Obama regime? Is that a signal Obama he wants to go after what he and other mentally deficient libbers call assault rifles, and will do so IF there’s not an election on the line?
This next part is the one that scares me the most.
White House: Obama not seeking new gun laws
WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House says President Barack Obama is not pushing for new gun control legislation even though he still supports a ban on assault weapons. Spokesman Jay Carney says Obama intends to focus on other ways to combat violence.
Carney’s comments Thursday are the latest sign that Obama won’t engage lawmakers in a drive for new laws, bowing to congressional opposition to additional gun restrictions.
Carney says Obama will work to enhance existing gun laws.

White House: Obama not seeking new gun laws
Everyone on the RIGHT knows; Jay Carney is a LIAR! That’s his job, to push the Obama line of BS on America and to try and sound convincing in doing so.
He has the LIAR part down to a science; the convincing part, not so much!
How does Obama plan to “enhance” existing gun laws without imposing more, and probably more invasive gun laws on us? Does Obama, and this shameless LIAR Jay Carney, believe that Americans are too stupid to know what *ENHANCE* means?
Enhance (verb) intensify, increase, or further improve the quality, value, or extent of…
The Mainstream Media carries the water for Obama and Company, of that there is no doubt. The really sad part is; the media gets caught perpetuating the LIES of the Obama regime on a regular basis, but they, the media, continue to tote that bucket!
Albert Einstein thus: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” By Einstein’s definition, are we to believe the media to be INSANE?
I believe we must!
Guard your families, homes and weapons America; we have more enemies WITHIN this nation than we do outside of it, starting with the President of the United States.
I have NO DOUBT that the Obama regime already has a plan in place to disarm the American people. I also believe that Obama is well aware that, at minimum, 75% of ALL Law Enforcement officers, on ALL levels, and another 75% of the military will refuse to obey ANY order to disarm the American citizen.
United Nations troops would have NO compunctions about doing so, thus the full ramifications of a U.N Global Arms Treaty is shown for the DANGER it presents.
Obama and his anti-gun cronies had best pay attention; unless you are willing to go to WAR against at least 150 MILLION American citizens and ¾ of ALL U.S. troops and Law Enforcement Officers, don’t try to take away ANYTHING from the American gun owner!
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
I am a member of that Well-Regulated Militia, and damned proud of it too!
