"First of all, the notion that I or Hillary or Democrats or whoever you want to choose are hell-bent on taking away folks’ guns is just not true," Obama said. "And I don’t care how many times the NRA says it."

Obama then claimed there have actually been more guns sold since he has been president than any time in US history. And it's true: Gun sales — based on the number of FBI criminal-background checks — increased by 65% over the period between 2008 and 2013, according to the Annenberg Public Policy Center.






He's right. So of course that means the gun freaks will have to shut down any rational debate by screaming louder about supposed gun elimination around the corner.

Obama believes AK belongs in the hands of soliders



But he will send ASSAULT WEAPONS to Syrians rebels so that they can fight against a government that doesn't represent them, because you need assault weapons to battle government forces. But yet American citizens have NO reason to own them? Then WTF is the 2nd amendment for? Of yeah, liberals think the 2nd amendment is for hunting? yeah because hunting was SOOOOOOO important that the founding fathers made it the 2nd Amendment, not the 5th or the last amendment, the 2nd!

Assault Weapon Ban signed by Hillary's spouse.


Hillary recently said "Amen" to using executive power towards gun control.



I believe she was once the house speaker or something like that, high ranking Congress woman,



We need to brainwash them



Oh and lets not forget the ATF running guns to Mexico and try to blame American gun shops and gun owners

Maybe it's true. Maybe him & the rest of Democrats don't want to take away guns. But why should believe them? Would they believe republicans & pro life groups that try and add things in to make it harder to get an abortion BUT still allow it?

I just find it hilarious that people think that we should just believe they won't try and ban guns. Like why should we believe you?

The ISIL sympathizer in question will have no choice but to comply with the no-fly restriction because they will be turned away at the airport.


Assuming a "no buy" list becomes law, will someone from the government follow these people around to make sure they don't purchase a firearm illegally?


Are we still operating under the assumption that mass murderers/terrorists obey gun laws?


The San Bernardino shooters were in violation of all sorts of firearm laws...never slowed them down.

Who will confiscate all the 3-D printers in the country?


https://3dprint.com/62597/ca-deputie...-3d-print-gun/




How would anything being proposed have prevented the attacks in Paris where strict gun laws were already in place?


Paris Attacks: How Europe's Terrorists Get Illegal Guns






The problem is always the same.


One of these individuals goes off and, because of strict gun laws, no one has a firearm with which to return fire.


A well armed pubic is always the best solution.

It won't stop with ISIS sympathizers. Democrats will put non-Muslims on the no fly list as well.

Is he also planning to put them on a no pressure cooker list?

If his plan is to violate their rights, wouldn't it be easier to just intern them for being ISIS sympathizers?

As can be expected... a bunch of right wingers who don't get it and continue to wet their pants about Obama somehow about to try to take all the guns away. Despite gun proliferation pretty much being at an all-time high with no signs of slowing anytime soon.

The point is that you're all fine with much greater KNOWN terrorist risks in America accessing weapons since God forbid we try to infringe on that - not to mention the risk of terrorists flying in from Paris via tourist visas - but then you fret all day long about much lower probability risks like ISIS coming in through Mexico or the danger of Syrian refugees (who are subject to way more in terms of background checks than any gun purchasers or tourist visa entrants).

Anyway, carry on with your delusions and paranoia.
