Re: Gun Control Update

Those 2 dirty basterds, using kids as shield. Well, let`s get on with it, if they don`t do it now they`ll just do another false flag operation until they do get what they want.   The question I have is, let`s say 0bama gets all this gun control he wants, "assault"weapon and magazine ban and turn the doctors into narcs...all that stuff ...everything.  Now that wouldn`t have prevented the mass shootings that we`ve had so far.   So, if the mass shootings continue, which they will, what then?  Do they ask for more gun control in a year??  Or will this increased gun control become an annual event??

Re: Gun Control Update

How is it we need a background check to buy a gun...but not to run a country?

Re: Gun Control Update

How is forcing some one to show an ID to buy a gun any different than forcing some one to show an ID to vote?

Guns don't kill people.....but drug cartels armed by our government do.

Re: Gun Control Update

If those kids obama used as props today were aborted, he would have approved of it. That is sick.

Re: Gun Control Update

My interpretation was that it was either a nothing or a great something.  It all depends on how the rules get written behind closed doors.

 

Have you followed the scandal about how the EPA cheif had private email accounts so discussions could be hidden from foia requests?

Re: Gun Control Update

  He seemed to be making a cloaked threat in some of his spiel about "executive action", as in declaring a state of emergency, like Ol' Honest Abe, if he didn't get his way.  As he has a public reputation for disgracefully backing down and being weak, dominated by special interests and foreign powers, and better liars, he may believe forcing gun prohibition on Americans is a cheap way to make his so-called "legacy"  that of a man of power and foresight like Lincoln was made out to be.  Easier to pretend than to be.

 

   Unfortunately, succeeding MIS-administrations have utilized the UN-Constitutional 'War Powers" of the executive, establishing it's precedence, instead of being loyal to the Constitution and preserve it's real functions. 

 

 About every succeeding executive has taken a little bit more unconstitutional extension of executive's authority and powers.   It's like a tag team.  It's got to stop before and unless it's too late for a peaceful rehabilitation.  The specter of opposing political parties is a lie to fool the sheeple.  

 

  Wilson mis-used it to take over control and regiment manufacturing, all resources including agriculture, which has never been let go free.  Control of agriculture is just a prime example of things which stated as a so-called under the guise of War Powers, most of which have never been repealed and are still there to be further abused.

D-4-Life- That's a brilliant de-rail comment and only goes to show you have nothing to say about the issue at hand.
