Obama Says He Wants Gun Control 'Priority' in 2013

The moment supporters of the Second Amendment have worried about may be here soon.

President Obama said Sunday that he will present a package of anti-gun legislation to Congress early in 2013, pledging to place his "full weight" behind the new restrictions.

As expected, Obama is taking advantage of the Newtown school massacre to persuade Congress and ignorant Americans that limiting legal access to guns would actually curb mass murders like those that took place in Connecticut on Dec. 14.

Obama said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” “I'm going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

Don't count on anything in that package actually addressing what happened in Newtown. Obama has called on Congress to reinstate the federal "assault weapons" ban and a ban on "high-capacity" magazines.

That legislation has already been dropped in the hopper by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who within days of the shootings produced a proposal that is a grab-bag of restrictions on not just so-called "assault weapons," but a long list of ordinary handguns and gun accessories as well.

It's a legislative package that clearly took more than a few days to put together, a fact that should raise eyebrows at the least but that is being ignored once again by the lapdog media.

"I've been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support," Obama said.

What's also very clear is that the Man Who Would Be King has more on his mind than just a few simple tweaks. A task force led by Vice President Biden -- no friend of the Constitution -- is hard at work coming up with proposals to "stop gun violence" that will be presented in January.

According to a source familiar with the task force's work, the proposals being considered may also address violent entertainment and speech that is deemed to incite violence.

You can guess whose speech they will be going after first.

At the risk of "inciting" anyone, this is looking more and more the time to keep your guns clean and loaded.

    I have one warning for the turncoats, you will be toast when re-election time comes around.

    • John Mayer

      I have a word of warning for big mouthed conservatives who think they're relevant: Your warning of making Obama a one term president didn't work out too well for you, did it? Your warning is worthless.

      • patriot3712

        John, enjoy your new tent at the fema camp just down the road from u. They will be herding your kind up very soon now.

        • John Mayer

          I always imagined you conservatives being the type who would "herd" other humans you disagree with up. Nazi Germans and Modern American conservatives have a LOT in common I've found over the years. I've never seen as many threats of "2nd amendment solutions" against liberals as I've seen reading your blogs for the last 4 years. Jim David Adkisson is a conservative who just went on a killing spree of "liberals" -- so I know you guys are doing more than threatening us. It's sad and scary times to live when so many people want you dead for thinking different than they do.

        • fliteking

          Ha~! Making my point while stealing my material! Perfect. You really make this easy. Have your brown shirt today?

          Liberalism / Socialism / National Workers Party**** are all joined at the hip on the political spectrum whereas Conservatives are at the far end of the spectrum ensuring the freedoms and rights of others. Simpleton denial does not make this set of facts go away.

          ***aka Nazis . . . you putz.

        • Fleur in Texas

          Hey Mayer,

          Don't play that old BS with Conservatives here. We're on to you and your "Liberal Agenda".

          And if you truly are buying into this ideology, then you are more stupid than, no doubt, you look.

          Things will only get worse for you and everyone else in the US that is white, Liberal OR Conservative This is a revival of the biggest race war ever. And just because you consider yourself Liberal, doesn't mean you won't be shot, rounded up, etc. You're a white man, a prime target.

          You really think you're going to be ask your political proclivities BEFORE
          They shoot you or beat you up? Damage will be done before they bother to ask. You might even die "right" before anyone bothers to listen to you.

          And what makes you think that the perpetrater will even believe you?
          You are a FOOl, sucked into the biggest lie in American history.

          And should you not be aprehended by the Radical Left, may some militia member will recognize you and take you away to la-la land

          And you deserve everything you get; you traitor.

        I too have seen your extremely Liberal, anti Second Amendment posts, John Mayer. You are no friend to Conservatives, Christians or Patriotic Americans who wish to restore this Republic to Constitutional rule. The Huffing & Puffington Post would probably be more to your liking. Either that or the comment section of the New York Times. C'Ya.

      • Doodlebug

        You are right John, a good example is the kook who shot the firefighters. He was in prison for killing his grandmother (and not with a gun), let out after 17 years and look what he did! However, I will be surprised if this issue is addressed. The crooks will have guns and those of us who don't will be looking down the wrong end of a barrel. I hope when the government takes them away from us that the law reads that obummer and Feinstein and the rest of those in government have to give up their guns and their armed guards. Yeah, sure!

        That's why they are called dumbocrats.

      • FreedomFray

        Democrats that you see posting on blogs are complete ideologues and will never be swayed. However, the majority of dems never engage the activity of participating in political blogs. They are to busy going about their daily lives; working, playing, raising a family, going to school, going on vacations, etc. You know, enjoying the benefits a (free?) society has provided. Enjoying it so much that they don't feel the need to pay attention to how their liberties are being effected. No time for that, life is too good.

        They get their news from the mendacious media and take it as true.

        No, most democrats are not stupid - they are just plain ignorant.

        While you can't fix "stupid", the good thing about "ignorance" is that it can be fixed. It's just a matter of getting their attention and educating them.

        Unfortunately, this burden falls upon we freedom loving patriots. While we (yes, I'm included) like to toil away, pounding out our frustrations, on these blogs - will never get their attention. THEY ARE NOT HERE! It's time to engage them in the real world as well.

          The KKK was started by southern democrats. Indeed, it is mostly populated by little pointy heads hiding under sheets (Senator Bird comes to mind). If it weren't for Conservatives and Republicans, blacks would still be "property" and the 1964 Civil Rights Act would never have been passed. Remember "algore"? His daddy, algore senior (lcit) fought tooth and nail against the '64 CRA. Being of mixed race myself, I have listened to "liberals" at work, specifically the bureau of lazy maggots, oh, excuse me, "bureau of land management" tell their racist jokes; usually behind my back thinking I'm out of earshot. The Republican Party works to help minorities of all stripes pull themselves up by their bootstraps. The dem's, on the other hand, want to keep all minorities in the ghetto's where they can control them and garner their votes through food stamps, "affirmative action" (something I flat refused to avail myself of, by the way), and countless other welfare rules, regulations and laws. America was built on the basis of the melting pot. Lib's like yourself like to think in terms of "diversity". The root of "diversity" is the Latin word, "divere"; to divide, to set apart. If you were to make a cheese sauce and took a block of cheddar cheese and melted it in a pot, you'd get a lumpy, oily mess. That is your "diversity". If, on the other hand, you took a block of Velveeta and melted it in a pot, you get a nice, smooth cheese sauce. That is the "Melting Pot" the Republic was built upon. So stuff a sock on your pseudo indignation. From my experience, and it is formidable, the biggest racists I have ever known are those who cry racism the loudest. Now crawl back under your liberal rock, you bolshevik!

    My suggestion is beginning NOW everyone start a letter writing campaign to their state representative. We need to petition our state governments as the federal government now appears to be the enemy' this time, civil war is not about slavery.

    • faithandhonor

      You are right, Randy... The Civil War was NOT about slavery, but the desire of the Northern mercantilists to keep all shipping coming into their ports, with their high tariffs and taxes. When merchants and shippers realized that they could ship tax and tariff-free into Southern ports, overland their goods to the North and STILL make a profit, they started shipping to the South, and it prospered.

      Rather than change their ways and become more competitive, the Northerners started the Civil War under the "moral" pretext of slavery. The same large interests that did ti then are doing it now, under the guide of the big banks and companies that practice their crony capitalism (which is NOT real capitalism), and have the same lame excuses for doing so.

    If every body would sign a recall in every state
    for all congress and impeachment for the President, we will get

  • James Maxwell

    Gun control for all American is something I can agree with whole heartledly. Ever legal
    Citizen who does not have a felony or mental disorder should be taught firearm safety,
    proper handling of weapons, markinsmanship and respect for others. A fundemental
    right guranteed by our Constitution. How to prevent terrorist, criminals and other
    attempts to destroy our nation, insure that all able bodied American are qualifyied to handle
    weapons safely and use good judgement when they are forced to pull one. Make the
    criminal and corrupt politican afraid of the citiznes not us afraid of them.

    I bet Obama and his socialist cohorts are jumping with glee as the gun control situation has just fallen into their lap with all these senseless shootings around the country lately. Coincidental? I'm not sure. Obama couldn't have asked for a better scenario to happen that would give him the ammunition, excuse the pun, to push for gun control and I'm sure for eventual confiscation of our guns. No need to wait on the UN Small Arms Treaty, he's got the whole nation behind him now. I'm sure he's very happy!

  • Ranchman

    Hopefully my post will not be deleted.

    The people must be the ones to stop gun control. The lifeblood of the 2nd Amendment is semi-auto weapons. To take these away is to effectively disarm the American people. All of us need to join with like-minded people, either the TEA Party, State Defense Force, Gun Owners of America (GOA), Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Owners (JPFO.ORG), or similar American organizations. There is strength in numbers and we definitely need to band together one way or another. For those readers who are so inclined, the State Defense Force is the best choice. Most are family oriented, defense minded only (no rowdy antagonists wanted!), and are extremely law abiding. Find one in your area and join either one of these or the other groups.

    Let me get this straight. The government purchases 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition with some being illegal hollow point rounds. The pass the ammunition out to agencies like the Social Security Administration. Now, they want gun control, and gun confiscation?
    Jefferson said it best, "When the government fears the people you have liberty." Time to push up the freedom factor people. Demand the hypocrite, monster, war criminal, tyrants to practice gun control on the personal security staff. No guns for their goons means liberty for the people. Then stop all the export of guns to the friends of these government gangsters like the Fast and Furious Mexican Drug gangs. No more gun exports period; especially to the diamond of a rogue apartheid state, Israel. Last but no least, make it illegal for anyone who has, or had, a second passport from holding a government position. America first policy is not what the gangsters cotton too. Join the Patriotic resistance. Using the adage from Richard Nixon, "just don't get caught," if you are able to make the 911 Neocons lives in any way inconvenient, from a small slight, to extreme prejudice, do it. Viva la Resistance! "Defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic."

    Gun control never has, never did and never will stop criminial activity with firearms.
    Gun control always has been, is and always will be about controlling the citizens, incremental disarmament, to pave the way for tyranny and oppression by runaway governments.
    As in Nazi Germany and Russia, whose citizens WERE well armed, they were duped into accepting gun control, to find themselves disarmed at the end and at the tender mercies of murdering sociopathic tyrants. No big deal, right? Really, less than 100 million were killed by these dictators, so it wasn't too bad, eh?
