re: Biden: Obama preparing to take "executive actions" to deal with guns.


I guess I'm confused. I don't see anywhere in the proposed changes that even come close to banning firearms. Having a gun should be a privilege for those who aren't crazy and a non criminal. Could someone please explain the slope into complete banning of guns and how in the frick it got so slippery??

I think you are confusing taking away guns versus universal background checks (which we already have in a limited capacity).

2nd Amendment guys are up in arms (no pun intended) b/c of where the background checks will lead. The Gov't wants to know who has guns and who doesn't; although that is not a requirement under the Constitution.

Some other law folks feel free to chime in.

Biden said this same crap after the Newtown shootings and Obama did nothing. The only purpose this serves is to rile up right-wingers.

Obama said this back in January and last time I looked he had not signed many, if any. He did look butt hurt on TV yesterday so he might be ready start signing...

Not only that, they also want the taxes they'll collect for a bloated bureaucratic system "required" to keep it in place.

In the end I think this agenda is just as much about money as it is about power. Either way, we have it and the government wants it.

Not that extreme. I think you will see the Dem momentum stopped and a slight turn to the GOP for the next couple of elections...just like what happened with Bush's 2nd term, too much negativity towards Obama recently and people including some moderate Dems, are getting sick of his same old antics with nothing getting any better.

Good ole JC. Either the biggest troll ever or someone that just wasn't very smart or too blinded by Romney love to see what was quite obvious to me immediately after the 2008 election. I kind of hope it was a trolling. I mean he had all those idiots believing him that Romney was going to win.

If Obama wants to lose the Senate and more seats in the House next year then I encourage him to overreach by way of EO.

Of course not. If he gets reasonable results on this issue (or any of his other manufactured social crises), he will have to turn his attention to the economy. That is hard work. He does not want to do that. Expect this discussion to continue while he crosses his fingers that the economy approves at some point during the year.

quote:

clinton did this to chinese weapons and ammo.


Before Clinton Bush I issued a royal decree implementing a very broad import ban. Clinton extended it, and Bush II never raised a finger to undo either.

LINK

1989 --

"The Bush Administration declared a permanent ban today on almost all foreign-made semiautomatic assault rifles. Imports of the weapons have been suspended since spring."



I despise what Obama stands for as much as anyone, but when people ignore the role of the GOP and lay it all at the feet of the Democrats they are just setting themselves up to elect people who will do the exact same thing with only an R in place of a D.

The vote yesterday was very close. If it had not been for Toomey, McCain and their ilk it would never have gotten this far. If people who claim to be "conservatives" ignore this and continue to vote for these kinds of Republicans because of the "Democrat bad, Republican good" or the "lessor of two-evils" mentality without looking at individuals, the left will eventually win on this.

People forget that Bush II had his soliciter general argue against Heller in D.C. vs Heller, and publically stated that he would like to see the 94 AWB not allowed to expire.

Had Romney who supported an "assault weapons" ban in MA, won the election, "common sense" gun-control would already have been signed into law.
