according to their platform.
“Firearms. We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans’ Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation. We understand the terrible consequences of gun violence; it serves as a reminder that life is fragile, and our time here is limited and precious. We believe in an honest, open national conversation about firearms. We can focus on effective enforcement of existing laws, especially strengthening our background check system, and we can work together to enact commonsense improvements – like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole – so that guns do not fall into the hands of those irresponsible, law-breaking few.”
Now here’s the problem with their stance. One, the assault weapons ban was 100% pure bullshit. Not ONE criminal was ever convicted under it as far as the Gunny can research it. Second, the ban had absolutely NO impact on violent crimes as anyone with a brain could have forecasted. (2010 edition of “More Guns, Less Crime.”) Why? Because criminals buy stolen guns off of the street or from the ATF as Operation Fast and Furious showed us. Maybe we’d be better off banning the DOJ and ATF! Third, as ANYONE who has purchased a firearm at a gun show knows (the Gunny has bought three different firearms at three different guns shows) you MUST produce photo IDs AND have an NCIC background investigation done ($25.00) before you walk away with a firearm. ANYONE who says ANYTHING to the contrary is full of shit and guaranteed has never been to a gun show OR purchased a firearm there. As a matter of fact, at an NRA event in Alaska, gun winners ALSO had to pay for the NCIC check before claiming their firearm. Indeed, what is reasonable to Sarah Brady and th other hoplophobes in the Democrat Party is UNreasonable to the rest of us.
Now gun sales are up AGAIN after the Dems convention and there is ample reason why. One, Obama LOVES himself a gun ban and would disarm this nation in a NY second if he could, leaving Americans at the mercy of his civilian army of Trayvon look-alikes (who just had another violent flash mob in NYC) and gangbangers armed with firearms obtained from Eric Witholder and the boys at the ATF. Two, on February 25, 2009, Eric Witholder himself, the head of the DOJ, stated that he wanted the AWB back in place. THIS is why Americans do not trust the Squatter-in-Chief or their government any longer, because they refuse to follow the laws they pass for us, they cover one another’s asses, they can’t even successfully prosecute John Leftwards or Corzine for that matter, who are so corrupt they redefine the word! Americans KNOW that Obama will simply rule via Executive Order, the Gestapo, er, DOJ, ATF, TSA, DHS will goosestep their way into the homes of legal law-abiding Americans and violate their rights as easily as they do at the airports, bus stations, and train stations and Congress will do nothig but twist their hankies. In addition, this is the regime that has called for submitting the US to the UN Small Arms Treaty, thus again scaring the hell out of Americans from sea to shining sea.
Americans KNOW that there are only TWO outcomes in November and that many among us refuse to face the facts. One, if Obama loses, and that is likely UNLESS the Dems can mount a massive voter fraud campaign, the Squatter-in-Chief, who said of a thug shot in Florida, “You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” will look the other way as his core voters riot and flash mob. And two, if Obama WINS, which is unlikely with each passing day, we can expect vicious anti-gun laws inflicted on us as Obama grows, “more flexible” with our enemies like Putin. Three, there is no doubt that Obama, Eric Witholder, Napolitano, and others high up in the Regime were up to their eyeballs in Operation Fast and Furious yet the soap opera goes on of Darrell Issa asking questions and asking for emails, etc, and the Regime stonewalling.
We the people EXPECT nothing but aggression and aggravation from the Obama Cartel who STILL has not brought Major Hasan, murderer of 13 people at Fort Hood and who is/was a friend of Obama’s to trial. We seem to understand that the military brass at the very top, i.e., General Dempsey, General Casey, etc, are nothing but Perfumed Princes and Princesses who are nothing but Yes Men/Women for the Squatter-in-Chief, i.e., homos in the service acting out their perversions openly. (They always COULD serve but had to keep it under wraps, just like us breeders had to do so any argument to the contrary is liberal bullshit.)
In dealing with tyranny, perhaps Solzhenitsyn said it best:
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
If we lose in November, than America and Americans deserve everything they get. See you at the gun shows!
