Coming then as it does on the heels of the release of five of the most vicious, bloodthirsty terrorist generals in history, Obama's latest anti-Constitutional screed strikes me as unintentionally idiotic.
President Barack Obama Tuesday suggested that the U.S. government should follow Australia’s example in dealing with shooting sprees, which involved strict gun bans on semiautomatic and automatic weapons.
Gee, doesn't the U.S. have a Second Amendment which protects the government from encroaching on the citizens' right to keep and bear arms? And isn't Australia missing such a citizen protection clause in their highest law?
“Australia had a mass shooting [in 1996] similar to Columbine and Newtown, and just said, ‘That’s it, we’re not seeing that again,’ and basically imposed very severe tough gun laws and they haven’t had a mass shooting since,” Obama said, after he was asked for his reaction to recent shooting episodes in California and Oregon. Those laws included the confiscation of nearly all handguns and rifles.
You mean gun control like that enacted by Chicago and Washington, DC which have both banned handguns for decades?
But the country needs “commonsense rules in place that make a dent in what’s happening,” he said, after an emotional appeal to the students and young people who were watching the Tumblr broadcast, which was advertised as a question-and-answer session about student debt... “My greatest frustration so far is that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people you know who can do just unbelievable damage,” he said.
You mean like keeping firearms away from the mentally ill, as the NRA has repeatedly suggested? Basic steps like that, which might require committing the truly insane as we did before the ACLU and the rest of the left wing radicals got their hands on the mental health system?
Does it seem odd to you......that the same president who armed the Taliban with Stinger missiles and the Mexican drug cartels with military-style weapons -- including hand grenades -- is hectoring the American public to forego their Constitutional rights while allowing terrorists, the disease-ridden, and gangsters to wander into the U.S. through our open southern border?
Let's see: Mao killed 80 million; Hitler was responsible for 50 or 60 million; and Stalin tallied perhaps another 40 million more. The point is not that they are progressive icons -- all socialists -- but that an armed citizenry is the ultimate defense against a rogue government.
Which is especially timely given what's happening on our southern border as well as what has occurred throughout the Obama presidency.
