"The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -- (Thomas Jefferson)
For a person who voted three times to leave aborted babies on tables to die, he sure didn't have any trouble using these children to put forth more unconstitutional and expensive executive orders! Tell me Butcher of Benghazi, how many children are killed by abortion alone in the United States?
According the Census Bureau Table 103. Abortions—2008 total abortions in 1,211,500.
10.8 million killed by car accidents according to the Census Bureau.
According to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence - in 2010, guns took the lives of 31,076 Americans in homicides, suicides and unintentional shootings. The Census Bureau state that there have been 18,406 in 2009.
Seems to me that cars are the biggest killer in the United States - I guess we need to get rid of cars too.
So lets start with one of these so called "executive orders" - stricter background check? How about we start with a background check of the current President - what about his background - does he own a gun? We know NOTHING whatsoever about this president other than what he tells people and that changes frequently to suit whatever lie he is perpetrating at the moment.
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
-- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759.
How about this one folks -- Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. So much for your medical privacy.
And yet another one -- Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes. They've been asking this one for years -- I told my doctor "NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS" which is how people need to answer that question. IT IS NONE OF MY DOCTOR'S BUSINESS IF I HAVE A GUN unless I am on drugs, an alcoholic or mentally ill.
The Second Amendment, as passed September 25, 1789: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Here's the rest of the laughable executive orders that will NOT STOP A CRIMINAL FROM KILLING at Fox News and by the way, what is the price tag for this fiasco? Try 500 million dollars -- MORE WASTED TAXPAYER MONEY because it still does not address the problem.
Criminals obey "gun control" laws in the same manner politicians follow their oaths of office. – Anonymous
Why don't we get to the real problem -- that is -- guns have a trigger that a person needs to pull -- the real problem is the MENTALLY ILL not the guns. You see from the above stats that it is clearly NOT guns that are the main killer of Americans -- i didn't even touch physical illness, cigarette smoking or other weapons.
Read Ann Coulter's article at Human Events which tells the truth about these mentally deranged people. Have you heard any of this from the lame stream media? Probably not.
I believe the NRA's ad was right on. Here it is:
Hypocrites...I guess only the important people need to be protected.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty, teeth and keystone under independence. The church, the plow, the prairie wagon and citizens' firearms are indelibly related. From the hour the pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that, to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. Every corner of this land knows firearms, and more than 99 and 99/100 percent of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil influence. They deserve a place of honor with all that's good. When firearms go, all goes. We need them every hour."
We Need Government Control Not Gun Control
"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to posses arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so." -Adolph Hitler 1938
The 1938 Nazi law barred Jews from businesses involving firearms. On November 10. 1938 -- one day after the Nazi party terror squads (the SS) savaged thousands of Jews, synagogues and Jewish businesses throughout Germany -- new regulations under the Weapons Law specifically barred Jews from owning any weapons, even clubs or knives.
You can laugh and chuckle and say "this can't happen here in the United States" but the Jews of Germany would beg to differ if they could...this is how it starts...chip away piece by piece until they've taken away your liberty.
I guess you low information voters, welfare recipients and Obama zombies don't give a damn as long as you can still receive cradle to grave entitlements and live off the backs of your fellow Americans.
I guess the GROWN UPS in this nation will have to keep fighting for all of us including the entitlement crowd.
COWARDS IN CONGRESS -- ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION AND FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHTS OF AMERICANS?
