Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

Here we go again. The new administration is going to try reinstating the gun ban. Just when we have gotten through an eight-year-long attack on our civil rights, it's starting all over again. "The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today. Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border."

And Liberals still wonder why they're so hated. LOL

An assault weapon in the hands of a citizen IS THE VERY PURPOSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT.

And for those of you who think the SA no longer applies ... THEN WHY IS IT STILL THE LAW OF THE LAND? The process of amending the U.S. Constitution still applies and is still valid. The SA is still the law until it is changed by amendment. PERIOD.

And Liberals still wonder why they're so hated

Hey--I'm with you and Pete on this...

Pink Slip

but but but, the messiah is a supporter of the SA. Assholes.

Hey let's not forget--when this ban was initially passed it passed with near UNANIMOUS support from REPUBLICANS

“On that score, I think we need to enforce the laws we have right now,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference.

Harry Reid also says this isn't happening:

did you expect? The Anointed One is not about freedom; he's about re-election. Give him a few years and then when he really needs the moonbat vote he'll fold faster than a royal flush in a lowball game.

And Pink_Slip? Don't try switching horses in the middle of the stream. You had your chance to be one of the pro-gun Democrats years ago and you declined in favor of 'common sense gun control'.

From Pelosi: “On that score, I think we need to enforce the laws we have right now,”

From MadJack: What we need to do is remove many of the laws we have right now.

No, I think you're just confused again.

Pink Slip

I am not.

I'll tell you what, Pink_Slip. You keep insisting you're pro-gun and, by extension, pro-freedom. I insist that you're nothing more than a Moonbat with an NRA bumper sticker. So here's what I propose:

In the next six months, let us say by 9/1 for the sake of convenience, you do something that is unmistakeably in support of the second amendment AND is newsworthy - even very slightly newsworthy - and post it here on SwampBubbles with a suitable "I Told You So, MadJack". This could even be a timely letter to the editor of The Blade, so long as they print it.

For my part, when I see this happen I'll include you as a pro-freedom supporter and generally honest and upright citizen and give you support on gun and general freedom issues.

Now is that fair or what?

I'll you what sport, try to find a quote from me anywhere (old Toledo Talk included) that would suggest otherwise...and I won't consider you to be some washed-up crank. Better yet, look me up and stop by sometime. I'll leave the door unlocked. Just walk on in....and you'll see where I stand on the issue.

Pink Slip

I won't consider you to be some washed-up crank.

Look, I don't care what you think about me. You're the one who's insisting you're pro-freedom but you can't back it up. Your moonbat associates sure aren't pro-freedom, but you claim to be a cut above them. Well, Ok then, maybe you are. I'm just asking for a little proof, is all. Doesn't that seem reasonable?

Go ahead, do something in support of the 2A.

No no no Jack. Here's what you said:

"Don't try switching horses in the middle of the stream"

Obviously this implies I was pro-gun control and switched. You can't back it up though...but by all means try

You Libs know how we real Americans are always saying "Outlaw guns and only outlaws will have guns"?

Let me explain what that means.

Imagine the type of person with the mentality to commit a crime using YOUR logic.

For instance, a criminal may use this thought process according to Liberal "logic":

'I think I will car-jack this car, kidnap the woman driver, take her to a back alley and repeatedly rape her, then go and rob a liquor store, take the money, grab some booze and kill the clerk.
BUT I'D BETTER NOT USE A GUN! THAT'S ILLEGAL!"

So pass more laws that the criminal mind will IGNORE because that is the definition of a criminal.
SOMEONE WHO IGNORES THE LAW.

Get it?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

You put it in the ten ring.

I've often wondered what goes through a criminal's mind prior to a crime. I mean, does the average criminal actually weigh the added gun penalty before a car jacking? Then there's the inevitable "I'll call nine-one-one!" threat. Does the criminal even think about this before he or she commits the crime? What happens when the criminal sees the victim pick up the phone and start dialing? Does he just give up and wait for Five-Oh (the police) to show up and arrest him?

And why are there more violent male criminals than female? What's the matter with all these equal-opportunity women who are so quick to whine about unfair treatment, then fail to commit their share of violent crime?

How do criminals know who to rob? I suspect that the criminals might start looking for Obama bumper stickers as an indication of someone who doesn't believe in guns (don't you just love that phrase? I don't believe in guns... kind of like, 'I don't believe people get robbed') and so is safer to rob than some other person who has a 'Insured by Smith and Wesson' bumper sticker.

My pistol of choice is an S&W revolver in .357. The advantage is ease of operation - just point it and pull the trigger.

I am and have been a member of the NRA for years.

But I do not own a gun.

A gun is like a table-saw to me.  I understand it is a tool that can be dangerous in the hands of someone with no experience.

However, if I want to buy a table-saw and learn how to use it, I can.  If I want to buy a gun and learn how to use it, I can.

If people are really afraid of a hunk of metal and plastic killing them, then first they need to outlaw cars. Because a 4000 pound hunk of metal and plastic going 70 mph is much more deadly in the hands of the inexperienced than a gun can be.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a

but just try and make a driver's license as hard to get as a CCW permit and see what happens.

You'll have every illegal in the country screaming if you try that!

when he wants to take weapons from law-abiding people who have every right to them to insure his regime (and other criminals) are the only ones with weapons.

The conservatives should have stopped the fraud and foreigner dead in his tracks - before he became president usurper - by demanding proof he's a natural born citizen, as the Constitution requires. Now it's past time to bring him to justice and clean house of all those who aided and abetted his terrorism against US.

I wish I knew how to post the pic....not just the link. Don't have one of those nice MACs....well I do, but I can't seem to get used to it.

Do I need some kind of Blogging program? I've tried all the tricks I know about and no luck.
