I think I am going to have a heart attack after hearing ‘Chairman’ Obama…or Mao, or whatever title he should go by now. His prepared speech to the American people on the Aurora shooting, seemingly was meant to dictate the new rules. He spoke as if there was no Constitution of the United States!
Americans do not need permission to bear guns. Our right was enumerated in the Second Amendment for the government agents to protect. Does Obama realize the Constitution was written before he was born?
Only in Hitler’s Germany, or countries like China, Cuba, and most of the socialist-communist regimes the people are not allowed to defend themselves from foreign and domestic enemies, because their “daddy” (the almighty state) has assured them they will be safe.
President Barack Obama, Wednesday called for a “common sense” approach to assault rifle sales in light of Friday’s mass shooting in Aurora, Colo., saying no “mentally unbalanced individual” should be able to get their hands on such weapons, according to the Huffington Post.
Ah! I was forgetting, the AK 15 used by the theater killer is not an assault rifle. Maybe Chairman Obama didn’t know what his speechwriter meant. Either that or Mr. President didn’t read it before giving his oratory on the subject.
“I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms,” Obama told the National Urban League convention in New Orleans. “I think we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation. That hunting and shooting are part of a cherished national heritage.”
Obama continues: “But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals. That they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities. I believe the majority of gun owners would agree we should do everything possible to prevent criminals and fugitives from purchasing weapons, and we should check someone’s criminal record before they can check out a gun seller.”
Mr. Chairman, the United States has become a battlefield!
The president called for new restrictions barring mentally unstable people from purchasing weapons. “These steps shouldn’t be controversial,” Obama said. “They should be common sense.” As if Obama ever held a gun, defending our country, or even served in the military and was trained to use a firearm and the proper, ethical way to use it and in what circumstances.
Police investigating the Aurora shooting said they believe James Holmes legally purchased four guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition used to kill 12 people, including an AR-15 assault rifle with a 100-round magazine. Obama pledged to work with lawmakers from both parties to reduce violence “at every level.” He noted that government can’t repair everything that plays into a killer’s actions.
So, Mr. Chairman Obama Mao, now you’re going to send every American gun owner or purchaser of an assault weapon for a psychiatric evaluation, and have them go through a criminal check to prove that they are sane. In other words, you doubt that the current millions of Americans gun owners are mentally sane and they could at any time start shooting at people; therefore they have to proof it the contrary, right?
If you can make the fools start lining up like lambs to the slaughter to submit to a Chairman Mao like mandate for a test to show that they are not crazy or are criminals, you’re out of your mind!! You’re making me think that if someone uses his truck to run over people in a plaza, that makes every driver in America insane and have to submit to a criminal record check just to have a driver’s license.
The People are the real defenders of liberty, not the government, and not its soldiers, Mr. ‘Chairman’ Obama. The guns and assault weapons are for the People and assisted by the soldiers. THE POLICE HAVE NO DUTY TO PROTECT US! And when it comes down to it, WILL THEY?
See the Supreme Court ruling: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/politics/28scotus.html?_r=1.
The day the people submit to this dictatorial order of yours, and Congress obeys, liberty in this country as we know it, will die. Instead, BAN VIOLENCE ON TV. Why can’t you do that? That is the real cause of violence in our youth. Your removing of God from school prayer, the promotion of sexual promiscuity, your government meddling in parental disciplinary actions within families, has deteriorated family values that have traditionally existed in this nation for centuries.
TV is the cause of so much lovelessness in our country. NOT THE GUNS. They don’t shoot by themselves. They are shot by evil, often twisted minds. And those minds are influenced, and even encouraged by acts and images show on television. CHAIRMAN OBAMA, you are bad for America and the world. Please go!!!

I suppose he thinks that’s an automatic machine gun, which in America it isn’t. It takes an FBI approved background check and a special license that costs thousands of dollars and is hard to get to buy a fully automatic weapon. Obama knows this, but pretends otherwise. If we blame a gun for killing those unfortunate people, then it must be a spoon’s fault that we have such a massive obesity problem in this country. So maybe it’s Obama’s speechwriters’ fault that he sounds like a broken record, un-presidential and like a future dictator?
