Our President renews his push for "Gun Control" and "Common Sense". His statements cause most legal firearms owners to assume that he conflates both legal and illegal firearms owners as people who are inclined to commit 'atrocities", and that efforts to restrict firearms possession as a step toward "rejecting atrocities". Words are more powerful than guns, when you're The President.
President Obama called on Americans to renew the push for gun-control legislation in a statement Tuesday marking the one-year anniversary of the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. "One year ago, 12 Americans went to work to protect and strengthen the country they loved," Obama said. "Today, we must do the same — rejecting atrocities like these as the new normal and renewing our call for common-sense reforms that respect our traditions while reducing the gun violence that shatters too many American families every day."
But be assured, nobody is trying to take your guns away. If the President seems to be working toward extreme 'gun control measures' (read: confiscation), it's only because gun owners are "fearful" .. otherwise they wouldn't be so extreme in defense of their 2nd Amendment Rights.
And congressmen who are more concerned with the Constitution than their Presidential leadership WILL be punished!
At the time, then-White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama was also "continuing to push the cause" of gun control. Asked whether President Obama would undertake a renewed push on gun control following the shooting, the White House spokesman said such questions should be "asked not just here but in Congress to those senators who voted no during last spring's push for expanded background checks."Carney added Obama "has not in the least hidden his displeasure and disappointment in Congress" and said the unwillingness of lawmakers to support the White House's proposals were the definition of taking "cues from a special interest."
"The president believes, and I think has shown, that we ought to do everything we can to implement common-sense measures to reduce gun violence in America," Carney said at the time.
One thing that Liberals can be depended on, is that the words "Common Sense Measures To Reduce Gun Violence In America" are the equivalent to "We WILL take your F*cking Guns Away, You F*cking Gun Nuts! And make you look like whiny babies while we do it to you in plain sight!"
