    Obama Plans Separate Gun-Control Speech

    And some of you fell for that crap about him not being anti-2A

    snip

    The announcement of Obama’s speech came as Democrats in the House and the Senate introduced legislation that would ban the possession or sale of high-capacity magazines.

    snip

    But in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort in which it will urge Congress to strengthen current laws, which now allow some mentally unstable people, such as alleged Arizona shooter Jared Loughner, to obtain certain assault weapons, in some cases without even a background check.

    There is room to be argued both ways about whether or not we need better controls on mentally unstable people. I won't take a side on it.

    The problem is any new regulation at the federal level on private sales, or on magazines and cosmetic parts. Not only will it not work, it will piss people off and yet again make a huge paradigm shift, again letting the republicans take over, continuing the vicious cycle of political stupidity across the country.

    When I was younger it would have bothered me more. Now that Arizona and all those other states have voided most federal gun laws, it has become particularly difficult for me to take this junk seriously. It is funny though, just how oblivious every news agency seems to be to the firearms freedom acts when reporting on the Tucson shooting and attempts at gun grabbing that could come as a response.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Exclamation

    In the Illinois senate,Obama voted against the "Haley Demar Law",which allowed people to have guns in their home for defense, after Mr Demar used a gun to defend himself and his kids in the middle of the night ,when a man who had broken into his house 24 hours prior,did so again.The law was passed,the Govenor vetoed it,Obama voted no again when the Govenors veto was overriden.
    It was just a matter of time when the anti-gunners would try again.They've been doing so for 40 years!
    Today JESUS would tell me to sell my coat and buy two Springfield XD Compact 45acp's!
