All I see is the president attempting to make it harder for people like the School shooter and that nut case from the dark knight shooting to get guns. Does the common person need an assult style weapon? hell no, the average person has no need for a weapon that will spit out 100 rounds of ammo in less than mineut and a half. Nothing wrong with limiting the size of ammo clips either. 10 rounds? if you cant deffend your self with 10 rounds then it was meant to be.
No one is loseing their guns, they are just putting in regulations and if you are dumb enough to belive that this says they are takeing your guns then you are to dumb to own one becuse obviously you can not read.
Them loopholes in background checks allowed ANYONE access to firearm purchases and that ANYONE includes TERRORISTS and MURDER'S if you dont do background checks and are against them how can you be sure a TERRORIST and a MURDER isnt buying guns? Really if you dont check the background how can you say you are keeping assault rifle out of the hands of criminals and TERRORISTS. By the lack of control you are creating a path for these violent criminals and TERRORISTS to get armed, in a way that is technically legal since it hasnt been outlawed.
some of these sound a bit off. I'm wondering how obama plans to finance these extra officers, training, and programs he is discussing. Is he placing it in the hands of the states to pay for or the federal government? I guess we can expect more taxes in the future. I guess 273 tax reform codes weren't enough for this year.
Also whats up with the sharing of medical information via health insurance etc? Is that really necessary? It's one thing to release mental health records but now the federal government is going to be looking at our complete medical records if we want to buy a gun? I have issue with that its non of their business.
Oh and the whole CDC research project to see what causes gun violence...are you friggin kidding me? what a waste of time and resources. Can hardly wait to pay for that too.
It's a good start.
He needs to do this piece by piece. Start with magazine sizes, then move onto assigning guns into categories (to remove the nebulous definition of "assault weapons"), and then ban anything remotely resembling police or military hardware.
He needs to start an independent track for a national handgun ban as well. An AWB will help reduce future mass shootings. But a bonafied national ban on hand guns could reduce all gun violence in the country.
If Obama's Agenda was to limit gun ownership and/or ban the public from using guns, how do you think he will accomplish this on his own? Do you have such little understanding on how government works that you do not understand or know that the President cannot write laws?
Do you not understand that to outright ban guns, i.e. repeal the 2nd amendment, he would have to get 2/3rds of the senate and the house to vote yes, then have 2/3rds the states to vote yes to repeal it right?
The President has no authority to write laws and all laws start in and require the approval of both the senate and house.
In all his years as president, he has signed in to law 2 gun regulations that expand gun ownership regulations on federal lands.
And then you want to talk about Liberties? Our freedoms being taken away? Why do you think that our Democratic President is the one who has that agenda? Haven't you payed attention to what has been happening to Womens rights at the state level? The Rights of the LGBT community are all but non-existent. Where is your outrage at Republican lawmakers that ban abortion clinics due to religious differences that the 1st amendment guarentees a separation of church and state? Do you think that the 1st amendment is as important as the 2nd? Do you think that the fact that some one else has the same rights as you do, that it some how infringes on your rights?
Please, Go back to the rock you and your kind live under and stop wasting societies time with this horribly ignorant ideology that is the Republican Party
Change the title of this thread To " take headline out of context And make gross assumptions Without any facts", And we will have a more accurate representation Of the OP's Crazy conservative agenda. For those of you that actually know how the American System of government works, We aren't worried. We know that only Congress can Take any action on this matter, And as such no fear mongering Is valid. FOXNews will rot your brain.
Zellviren of Invective of Killrogg: I salute you.
find it funny that Obama is wasting our resources on this. Australia banned all guns over a year ago and did it solve anything? No, all violent crimes skyrocketed. It cost australia 500 million dollars to see they were wrong how much is america going to waste?
