Obama Announces Gun Control Measures

Speaking this morning at a press conference announcing his administration’s plan for gun control, President Obama said the following:

I will put everything I’ve got into this, and so will Joe [Biden]…

Save the Children

Bad news folks. Gun control is coming, and predictably, it’s all for the children. At President Obama’s press conference this morning, he confirmed what we’ve all been fearing. President Obama is calling for Congress to gun control legislation to do the following:

  • Renew the “Assault Weapon” Ban
  • Ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds
  • Require private transfers to go through an FFL
  • Ban the possession and importation of armor-piercing bullets

Beyond the actions of Congress, Obama is also planning to enact some gun control measures on his own through Executive Order. This is from Fox News:

Unilaterally, Obama plans to make federal agencies share information with the federal background check system; nominate a new ATF director; propose new rules to let law enforcement run full background checks before returning a seized gun; order the Centers for Disease Control to research causes of gun violence; require law enforcement to trace guns from criminal investigations; and take other steps.

    Did his rules include the guns given away to Mexico so they can kill american citizens ? Little by little the libs want to take away the constitution and have a dictatorship.. Little do the realize that there is only room for one person at the top and soon their shit will not be needed and they will not have a gun also.

    And what about the weapons he supplied to the Syrian civilians for using against their evil dictator? He is a hypocrite and a sorry excuse for a leader.

    What is wrong with any of these regulations.
    Are they really that severe? Really is there s need for armor piercing bullets. why shpuldnt private sellers obey the sane laws of licensed dealers? Bring back a law that was passed during the Clinton years. No talk of disarming anyone.

      Missy, you simply have no idea how ignorant your comments are. We have the Second Amendment in order to protect us from a tyrannical government such as our founding fathers fought against. They knew we might need to throw off a dictatorial government and gave us a means to do so. The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it needs no protection until it is needed by the people against our government. That time is now. That’s what is wrong with all these regulations and executive orders being thrown at us today. Doing it Obama’s way will ensure all Americans are disarmed because you already know Obama is a liar. Get yourself educated!

        Universal background checks are a backdoor for registry. Which means property seizure, later.

    Who does he think he is?

    Missy, read about the petrodollar and you will understand just how corrupt our government is. Parts 1 threw 4

    If he is starting with executive orders to change or bypass the 2nd Amendment now, what other amendments will he change? The Right to Free Speech! Think about now how he is stating that the last “weapons ban” was allowed to expire? I thought Congress voted to allow it expire bacause it did not have any effect on “Gun Violence”.

    If gun owners don’t control and regulate ourselves, someone will do it for us.

    Blaming massacres like SandyHook on video games is just stupid.

    Maybe I am ignorant in your eyes. I have been trying to understand those who oppose any type of gun.control. I’ve given it my best shot, only to be treated like my opinions do not matter. sounds kinda like a dictatorship to me. It’s your way or no way. Even talking about killing those who will take your gun. No one is grabbing your gun. So I’m asking the question again. please respond without talking amout the second admendment . will it work and if not what will work or don’t you care

      We oppose it because it does not work, and more importantly, because the politicians will not stop until we are completely disarmed.

      It’s really not that complicated. If gun control DID work, then places like Chicago would be among the safest cities in America.

    So I’m asking again what will work. They have a gun contol in chicago. How many years have it been in place. what are the restrictions? Are the restrictions hurting anyone? I’m asking to understand your frustration better.

      If you genuinely want to know email me. It’s too much typing for my phone keyboard.
