Obama is already the greatest gun salesman in American history, and you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Now he’s going to come after law-abiding gun owners, and if you don’t believe this is the plan, then why was it announced on a holiday, New Year’s Day?
If you don’t have a gun permit, get one. If you don’t own a firearm, buy one — now! Stock up on ammo, too. Join the NRA. What this is about is very simple — Obama is coming after our guns because he and his ilk don’t want us to be able to defend ourselves.
“I directed my team at the White House,” he said yesterday “to look into any new actions I can take to help reduce gun violence.”
Here’s my suggestion: Enforce the bleeping federal laws that are already on the books. In 2004, under George W. Bush, the feds prosecuted 8,752 federal gun-violation cases. In 2013, under this gun-grab administration, the feds prosecuted 5,082 cases — a decline of 42 percent.
So who’s kidding whom here? Obama, Holder, Lynch et al. have zero interest in enforcing the existing gun statutes because they’re violated in large measure by illegal aliens, gangbangers, drive-by shooters, street muggers and fifth-generation welfare layabouts — in other words, the core constituencies of the Democratic Party. Do any of these Obama voters get their weapons at gun shows? If you’ve ever been to a gun show, you damn well know the answer to that question.
In a 2014 story in the Washington Times, a George Washington University professor commented on the “irony” of the Obama obsession with cracking down on taxpayers while letting his own voters run amok.
“For a lot of people,” he said, referring to the PC crowd trying to fundamentally transform America into a Third World hellhole, “there’s more ideological cachet harassing Bubba at the gun show than getting a handle on gun crime.”
Exactly. By the way, two thirds of the gun deaths in the U.S. are suicides. Can’t do anything about those, can you?
None of these harass-the-Americans measures that will be proposed next week would have had the slightest impact on most of the recent mass shootings — you know, like by the Islamic terrorists in San Bernardino, or the Islamic terrorist at Fort Hood, or the Islamic terrorist at LAX, or the Islamic terrorist Beltway shooter …
Begin to see a pattern here, a different pattern? If Obama really cared about the safety of the population, he would first halt immigration from the terrorist countries, which he has a Constitutional right to do, unlike this proposed slo-mo repeal of the Second Amendment.
If only the terrorists and the rest of the illegal aliens were Republicans, they’d have been deported yesterday. If only Democrats went to gun shows, they’d be sacred ground, like abortion clinics.
In the meantime, here’s the only New Year’s resolution you need to make. Buy a gun if you don’t have one. If you already have one, buy another, or two, or three. And buy stock in gun companies. It’s going to be a banner year.
