As always the devil was in the details. This was more than just a BILL to close loopholes in background checks, they were also trying to sneak in the so called "assault weapons" ban amendment and make it a felony for a father/mother, to give his/her son or daughter a firearm. We must always take care not to pass any laws that suppress and infringe on the rights of lawful Americans. This BILL did exactly that!
"Look up the NY SAFE Act."
Yeah..I did and maybe you should too. The discussion was about how the Executive Branch of our govt was taking guns. The NY Safe Act was passed by the NY Legislature
"Exactly what influences you and your opinions?"
Many places, unlike fanatics that seem to lean too heavily on just the Right or Left.
Yeah..that whole Berghdahl makes no sense. What did he say that was so wrong?
"In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate"
The horror. No one should smile politely at such words.
Look up the NY SAFE Act. See how the NY State patrol is confiscating guns from people as we speak because the sheriffs refused to do so. Anyone seen as a threat to society with decades old run ins with the law are losing their guns ! Ever heard of Michael Bloomberg and his campaign against legal gun owners?? Google that. Come on man. Wake up !!
Exactly what influences you and your opinions ? Sounds like Kunect is exactly right about you. Maybe you should research topics before you defend somethings. A mind really is a terrible thing to waste.
"WOW you ARE an informed one arent you."
Yes I am. Note that he wasn't trying to take away any guns.
"a reaction to the Senate's failure to pass a key gun control measure that would have expanded background checks."
Pay better attention to detail next time. In case you didn't notice...Obama still has not tried to take any weapons from you or anyone else you know.
ww w.teaparty . org / see-obama-smile-soon-bergdahl-father-praises...
WOW you ARE an informed one arent you.
I had to look this person up. I don't watch MSNBC as much as it seems that you do.
"Look at the Berghdahl video where Mr B. says the prayer in Islam and watch Barry smile broadly. And he has said the morning prayer "is the most beautiful sound on earth"."
I have no idea what video you are talking about because I couldn't find any reliable news video on it.
And Obama NEVER said that the call to prayer as the "most beautiful sound on earth".
Let's also pause for a moment to remind everyone that your faulty claim isn't even evidence of Obama being Muslim. Just that the call to prayer was beautiful sounding and depending on who is singing it..it can be.
"It is NOT because he hasnt tried."
He hasn't tried to take a single weapon from you or anyone you personally know now has he? If he wanted to he could do one of those swanky Executive Orders of his couldn't he? Jeesh, there have been more gun sales in the last few years than ever so that's evidence that he has not tried to take weapons away.
" While the haters thought by now that Obama would; 1)take all our weapons 2)destroy the literal country 3) be proven to be Muslim 4) create a socialistic govt 5) Be impeached..etc None of this has happened and it's not going to." First off, I am NOT a hater. I disagree with the group in charges policies now. Guns - It is NOT because he hasnt tried. He tried and failed because the NRA and citizens of this country kicked their butts because their anti gun lies were proven to be baseless. Look at the Berghdahl video where Mr B. says the prayer in Islam and watch Barry smile broadly. And he has said the morning prayer "is the most beautiful sound on earth". Yes, the public speaks thru their representatives. That is why the Republicans are keeping this liberal madness at bay.. Do people like you need to be hit over the head with the truth to believe the truth, contrary to what Melissa Harris-Perry tells you ?? Obviously !!
What exactly do you think the "public" should do?
Gun sales have been higher in the last 6 years than the average, so the public has weapons to use.
The mail system still works so we know the public could write to their Reps.
We still have a Republic, so the public could actually do something shocking and vote.
Was there anything else the public could do?
I used to think the American Public was smarter than give credit for by some but now, with people sitting by and allowing this crap and reasoning it away while a gov is doing this I am appalled that people are not only letting it but defending it !!
"It is everyones fault but his."
What actually funny is the imaginations that some people have because no one on here has said Obama wasn't at fault. No one.
"Dont expect him the guy that has an oath to do anything but..."
Really? You are going with a fallacy of absolutes? See..this is my complaint...that people go to weird extremes and then get angry when their fantasy doesn't match reality.
While the haters thought by now that Obama would; 1)take all our weapons 2)destroy the literal country 3) be proven to be Muslim 4) create a socialistic govt 5) Be impeached..etc
None of this has happened and it's not going to.
"They are quite literally afraid for the future of the Republic should Obama’s fake birth certificate go prime time."
These people are vastly ignorant conspiracy theorists.
"when the BP requested funding north of $100,000,000 for increased enforcement along the border, they were rejected."
Why was it rejected and how could it have helped solve the problem we have today.
Because "today" the problem isn't about illegals from Mexico. "Today" isn't about terrorists sneaking across the border. What the problem we have today isn't the same problem we have had for decades now is it?
Because of existing policies, we can't reject these children, can't just turn them around or any other half ***ed Mad Max solution the Far Right can come up with.
And. Biden as much of an idiot as he is has been in Congress for 30 years and knows how to make deals there in DC and SHOULD he a heck of a lot better than a president that says "heres what I need, now give it to me or I will slam you at the microphone for not doing your job".
Funny that people who claim they didnt vote for the guy are always standing up for him, especially when he is using Big Brother in a way that makes the book 1984 look like a comic book. It is everyones fault but his. Dont expect him the guy that has an oath to do anything but hold fundraisers, drink beer, play pool and take selfies with people... Thats TOO much like WORK for him !!God it is getting OLD. And it is all due to people being blind !!
