The Scolder-In-Chief Is In a Snit, You Guys

130417-giffords-obama-1030p.photoblog600Okay, this ticks me off a little. To be publicly chastised by a guy who doesn’t mind using a tragically disabled former U.S. congresswoman and devastated parents of murdered children as a sock puppets, just because he thinks the Second Amenndment is antiquated. Should we tender our NRA resignations now or later?

Washington Times via Drudge:

President Obama angrily blamed the defeat Wednesday of his centerpiece gun-control proposal on lies spread by the National Rifle Association, calling it “a pretty shameful day for Washington.”

Notice he says for ‘Washington,’ not America. This is where we’re supposed to feel sorry?

“The gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill,” Mr. Obama said in the White House rose garden about 90 minutes after the vote. “It came down to politics…”

The president put the blame squarely on the NRA, which he accused of spreading falsehoods that the legislation would lead to a national gun registry.

“They claimed that it would create some sort of big-brother gun registry, even though it did the opposite,” Mr. Obama said. “This pattern of spreading untruths … served a purpose. A minority in the U.S. Senate decided it wasn’t worth it. They blocked common-sense gun reforms, even while these families looked on from the Senate gallery. It’s not going to happen because 90 percent of Republicans just voted against that idea.” [More]

Oh, you mean, like, when the government keeps records of what guns people have and everything? And  the law requires doctors to report who owns guns and what medications they use, and the FBI, like, has in some database somewhere how much ammunition someone buys, and where they go to church and who their friends are, and whether or not they cling to their religion and guns …? That’s the ‘big brother registry’ they’re lying about?

Oh.

Mr. President, to those of us who don’t have Secret Service protection or radical leftist terrorist bombers as our friends — we normal, everyday Joes and Janes — it doesn’t seem extreme for us to want high capacity weapons or to be wary of the government’s desire to know every detail of our daily lives.

That is, after all, why we have a Second Amendment. Because, although we love our country, we will never completely trust our government, or those we elect to run it.

Oh, you weren’t finished? Excuse me.

“You’ve got to send the right people to Washington,” he told voters. “That requires strength and it requires persistence. I see this as just Round One. Sooner or later, we are going to get this right. The memories of these children demand it.”

Don’t bet on it, ass— er, Mr. President.

You are right about one thing, though, Mr. President. It is for the children. So they will still have the same America we were blessed enough to grow up in, while you were in Indonesia.… And that part about sending the right people to Washington? We’re working on it.

    As if he has never lied to the American people or used “politics” in the most crass ways. For him to stand there and tell us that the senators that voted against this garbage don’t care about children is another black lie. The bill did nothing to protect children or Gabby Giffords, the NRA had it right that if you want to truly protect children, put armed guards in schools. He chose to ignore a real solution and use a tragedy to further his liberal agenda.

      Personally, we believe armed citizens, including school teachers and janitors, are the way to go. An armed guard may just decide minimum wage isn’t worth the risk, but those facing a madman will have no choice but to act. I’m thinking of that one dear teacher who valiantly hid her students. What would she have given for a firearm?

    Obama fails to point out that the Democrats, including his beloved faternal twin Harry Reid, helped to defeat the bill. McCain, the turncoat, states that amendment would help to “ensure that felons and the mentally-ill do not obtain guns they should not possess.” Perhaps, he should sponsor a bill to register all felons and the mentally ill instead. But that makes about as much sense as the Manchin-Toomey amendment. Those pea-brained politicians never get it right, do they?

      Very astute. Obama will get his MSM narrative though. They’re already framing this as ‘out of control right wing gun nuts.’ Americans must understands that rights are not bestowed by government; they are God given.

    What the hell? You have to have a financial background check to buy a house. You have to have a financial background check to lease an apartment. You have to have a employment background check to get a job. But you don’t have to have a background check to buy guns and ammunition to kill your fellow citizens? Because that is who is getting killed. This fantasy about stopping a government that has heat sinking missiles, laser rays and drones is just that, a fantasy. The founders gave you the tool that you need to stop tyranny. It is called the ballot box. Yet you need id to vote, but not buy a gun? Ridiculous.

      Well said, but you don’t have an inherent inalienable right to buy a house or rent an apartment, and you don’t have to work for an employer you think is too intrusive into your private affairs. I’ll stick with the Second Amendment. You and Barry can go to wherever you think the constitution works better for you.

        So cebreeze, what would you do if some gangsta or druggie broke into your house while you were there ahd they had a gun? Is your “shield” of background checks or your ballot going to save you? I seriously doubt it. Guns are for protection from the bad guys, which unfortunately these days includes the government.
