And here it is folk... It didn't take them long to go after the Second Amendment...


By Rebecca Shabad CBS News June 14, 2016, 8:54 AM

Just days after the massacre in an Orlando nightclub left 49 people dead and 53 wounded, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Tuesday said that gun control is now a critical element of protecting the U.S. homeland and keeping Americans safe.

"We have to face the fact that meaningful gun control has to be a part of homeland security," Johnson said in an interview on "CBS This Morning." "We need to do something to minimize the opportunity for terrorists to get a gun in this country."

On the issue of people on the no-fly list and various other lists being able to purchase a weapon in the U.S., Johnson said, "I believe that that's something that has to be addressed."

Johnson said that President Obama is "frustrated" with the lack of action on preventing gun violence, but he's still "determined."

"I thought frankly after Sandy Hook where you have schoolchildren murdered in a classroom that maybe finally this will be the tipping point and we were not able to move the needle in Congress, unfortunately," Johnson said.

Efforts to make gun laws stricter have failed in Congress over the last decade. The assault weapons ban, for example, expired in 2004 and lawmakers have not renewed that legislation. Democrats on Capitol Hill have grown increasingly frustrated and on Monday evening, shouted down Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, after a moment of silence, demanding to know why the House isn't considering gun control legislation.

This is outrageous, the Obama administration, and President Obama of course had to take advantage of this tragedy to go after the Second Amendment.

What I wonder is what DHS secretary Jeh Johnson has to say at all about the terror suspects with ties to Islamic extremists which the Obama administration ordered to be taken off the fly list, and their records sponged/erased but a Senator noticed and asked about it?...

Senator Chuck Grassley Inquiry into DHS terrorist Hands off List Dissapears from his Webpage.

Terrorist Sympathizer Obama Has DHS Delete Terrorist's Records!

Watchdog Sues DHS For Terrorist ‘Hands Off’ List

Hillary's State Dept. Blocked Investigation into Orlando Killer's Mosque

CONFIRMED: FBI Introduced Florida Shooter to “Informants”

So it has began... I wonder what the "no one is going after your guns" crowd have to say now... Probably something like "but it is necessary".

The only governments that do these kinds of things are those that are after no good at all.

I agree to the fullest degree. No I'm not a liberal not a gun grabber but it is way too easy to get a gun. There needs to be better vetting. I purpose a stricter background check and also a fingerprint identifier for your gun so in the black market trade gets drastically smaller. We have fingerprint locks on phones why not guns?

Jeh Johnson is a MORON.

San Bernadino terrorist attack they used a straw buyer.

The only fact we have to face is our country is ran by nothing but idiots.

Gun control is now a national security issue!

The surveillance state has FAILED. After all thats why the Patriot Act was created.

We have had over 80 years of gun control.

And not jut 8 years ago people like Johnson were saying how FASCIST no fly lists were under GW.

What's next ?

So they are lax the shooter. Didn't fathom it could happen much? Incompetency at it's finest. Not the people responsible, but rather the citizens will take the brunt of it. Great just what the terrorists want, more no gun zones, more unarmed citizens. Hey more places to shoot up! Good go

That proposal violates about 10 different amendments.

But hey who cares about Americans civil liberties any way.

I only want this quote, yours;

"This is outrageous, the Obama administration, and President Obama of course had to take advantage of this tragedy to go after the Second Amendment."

This tragedy was, set up by the FBI, with the help or instruction of the state department and obama using a known CIA asset's spawn as a motivating tool to install their agenda. Think on that for a minute. The president and state Department using your tax dollars to forge the chains to enslave you. Just an opinion mind you, but all the evidence is pointing that way.

It's truly a sick world.

ETA: The irony in all of this is that the people the government kill, innocent bystanders murdered, we're probably paying the taxes that paid for the bullets that killed them

Cheers - Dave

Some Gun owners are disgusting, the fact that another killing spree has happened means nothing to them, just as long as they get theirs guns.

If your all legit and there is no reason to think your violent than what is the big deal if the government wants to make it harder for the insane and criminals to get guns?

I have no issue with people owning guns just as long they have had the training, have had a thorough background check and hopefully are mentally fit to own one.

Saw these on a meme and it is correct...



"gun don't kill people"

Well no sh*t

We want...mandatory safety courses for...PEOPLE, not guns.

We want...more thorough background checks of...PEOPLE, not guns.

We want...stricter negligence penalties imposed on...PEOPLE, guns.

If you're stupid enough to think activists are pi**ed at guns, you're too stupid to own one!

I have no issue with people talking as long as they've had the training and a thorough background check and are mentally fit to use their brains.

You see how ridiculous I sound?

How do you expect that to work when real terrorist threats with ties to Muslim extremists/radicals have been taken off the no-fly list?...

Yeah because someone walking into a room or club and opening their mouth has resulted in multiple deaths...a mass talking to people too death.

They are exactly the same the same thing.


Ugh, and you are a gun owner.

Point 1. Okay you can go to a gun show and get a gun in cash transaction with no hassle, buy a gun of the streets from criminals easy as hell. The Orlando shooter was obviously unstable, had a FBI investigation on him and still got a gun, an AR-15 no less

Point 2. Please name them. Seriously? I'm not saying people shouldn't own guns, especially law abiding decent people. Wouldn't it be awesome to know your gun is actually yours? No one could steal it or use it in a crime and you get punished. But I eagerly await to hear the 10.

These liberals are divergent thinkers aren't they?
They want to measure ALL laws by the worst of us or the lowest common act ,based on ONLY it's possibility.
You DON'T get to do that,be offended we couldn't care less.
We are responsible for ourselves ALONE,no one else.

STRAWMAN because NOONE of the shooters used that means.

That's another strawman because Marteen passed background check and security screenings.

Hell I will throw in Lanza a well that KILLED his mother to get his.

Then I will throw in the San Bernadino couple that used straw buyers.

Gunphobes need to lay off or at least KNOW what they are talking about.

Nothing is perfect sure people screw up, things get overlooked, people make mistakes. Its about minimizing risk. If you had a fingerprint gun and go hunting or use it protection legally AR-15, AK-47 whatever awesome. Its your gun do what you want. Only criminals should fear exposure.
