that they want to confiscate our guns? It all seem like paranoia to me
Yes...The President issued "executive actions"...which are weaker tea than even executive "orders" and they all centered on enforcing current laws,
background checks etc.
He did ask congress
to consider an Assualt Weapon's ban similair to the one that Ronald Reagan supported....but honestly...ask congress? The
same GOP Congress that refused to pass hurricaine relief for NJ and NYC? The same GOP congress that refused for almost a year to approve medical care
for 9-11 first responders? The Gun Lobby is afraid that THEY are going to ban guns? They can't pass the most neutral of bills...you think a gun bill
would ever even make it the floor? Let alone get the GOP votes needed to pass? Has anyone been paying any attention lately??
So not sure what the fuss is? Honestly?...I think it affords the far right one more chance to cast Pres. Obama as an enemy of the constitution and an
opportunity to once again engage in tyrannical fantasy...to play in an idealogical doll house where America is invaded by Nazi's and the only thing
that stops them is skeeter in Alabama with his AK-47.
None of it has any foundation in reality...it is simply the natural climax of the rhetoric to date...
Apocolyptic/paranoid fantasy...it requires no evidence and isn't obligated to acknowledge the facts that exist.
Executive "actions"...not "orders"...and speaking to enforcing current law...oh yah and to gather data on mass shootings and gun violence...Everybody
freak out! The gov is doing a STUDY.
ASKING CONGRESS to "discuss" and assualt weapons ban...which we have had before without tyranny....Reagan supported it...and who here thinks that
CONGRESS....CONGRESS!!...will even discuss an assault weapons ban????
Kinda silly...There is no substance to the crazy talk...different flavors of Alex Jones...
GEEZ Folks...even when the President announced his weak tea gun policy "suggestions" on enforcing current laws, he felt obligated to state this!
Now, let me be absolutely clear: Like most Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. I respect our
strong tradition of gun ownership and the rights of hunters and sportsmen. There are millions of responsible, law-abiding gun owners in America who
cherish their right to bear arms for hunting or sport or protection or collection.

But what the hell, carry on, if the Birther era taught me anything it is that to some folks...facts don't matter.
