Be honest. When you were a kid, you didn’t think when you reached middle-age you’d be using phrases like “the inmates have finally taken over the asylum” or “kids today…” or “back in my day…” You didn’t, right?
Screeeeeeech! Fast-forward 30 years. THE INMATES HAVE FINALLY TAKEN OVER THE ASYLUM!!!
It’s ridiculous in itself that there are enough stupid Americans to reelect Barack Obama in the first place, without everything else that is going on with this administration. Colorado didn’t have to legalize pot; at least 51 percent of the country is totally stoned.
Attorney General Eric Holder will be the nation’s top law enforcement official as the administration tackles new restrictions on guns in a major initiative of President Obama’s second term.
The administration announced Wednesday that Holder, a longtime foe of the National Rifle Association (NRA), would remain with Obama for a second term.
The announcement came the same day Holder sat shoulder to shoulder with Vice President Biden and gun-control advocates in a meeting at the White House.
Holder’s attendance at the talks suggests he will have a major role in the gun violence task force established by Obama in the wake of the killing of 26 people — including 20 6- and 7-year-olds — at an elementary school in Connecticut last month.
We’re going to be seeing this in the news a lot in coming days while the U.S. media attempt to sway public opinion and, this time, not only pass an “assault weapons” ban, but confiscate existing guns and magazines.
But so far it seems to be backfiring. (We like the pun.) Having Crazy Joe Biden and Eric Holder (two Americans who should be banned from ever going within a 100 yards of any kind of firearm, or even sharp objects, for that matter) run the show on the Left won’t play well. Joe has to have a bib to drink coffee, if a woman’s in the room.
We’ve had some fun with this blog over the past couple of years, but this is serious. During the 1960s, the left-wing media ridiculed the Right as the “commie-under-every-bush” crowd, and it turned out that, by golly, there was a commie under every bush.
This week they will begin to lambast Americans who fear their Second Amendment rights are about to be stripped. They will paint gun owners as extremists every chance they get. Look for news stories to be headlined anytime some nutjob does something crazy with a firearm.
Americans who value their freedoms should be extreme on gun rights. The far Left is out en masse on this.
In the 1960s and ‘70s the government talked citizens into surrendering their right to privacy by legislating wholesale registration of handguns.
In a society that statistically for decades has claimed not to trust politicians, how did this make sense?
Think about it. What good have those laws provided the private citizen? None whatsoever. When someone is determined to kill gun registration hasn’t provided a single deterrent.
Contrarily, gun registration laws have given the government the names and addresses of virtually every gun owner in the country. And now we are seeing the next step.
Barack Obama is the president who intends to get serious about limiting the private ownership of firearms. Can he confiscate guns? We don’t think so. People will certainly die if he tries. But, make no mistake, if citizens don’t get involved in this battle, the president will make enormous inroads into depriving Americans of our Second Amendment rights.
