Yet another example of President Obama abusing the rights and privileges of his office along with the rights of Americans to bear arms.
Obama said over the weekend that he’ll meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss his options on tightening federal firearms laws to reduce violence, after instructing his White House team several months ago to look at what types of “action” he could take.
Obama purportedly will use executive action to require small-scale gun sellers to order background checks on prospective buyers and tighten laws for gun sales to those who have committed domestic-abuse offenses.
While I’m all for getting and keeping guns out of the hands of criminals these types of laws have already proven to be ineffective in doing so. Despite all the legislation and executive orders in place – criminals will still get guns. Guns are not the problem, the people using them are. When are Obama and company going to wake up and realize this?
From Fox News:
“We’re not changing the Second Amendment,” front-running Donald Trump said Saturday at a campaign rally in Biloxi, Miss. “I will veto that. I will un-sign that so fast.”
“The president is a petulant child,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told “Fox News Sunday.” “Whenever he doesn’t get what he wants, … this president acts like a king.”
“The president has a pattern of taking away rights of citizens,” GOP candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told “Fox News Sunday.”
This is not about keeping guns from criminals, rather its about taking away all guns from all people in the U.S. We need only look to the former Nazi Germany to see how well that worked out. Taking all guns away from law abiding citizens only opens the door for anarchy and chaos to rule. Even many of those in law enforcement say themselves that citizens should be armed, because try though they may – the police might not always get there in time.
Each time there is a gun related tragedy Obama shamelessly uses that as an attempt to drum up support for some piece of legislation from his gun control wish-list. Now President Obama says he will issue executive orders to get his way – again.
Why does Congress stand for this unconstitutional misuse of presidential power? We have a president who pretty much does as he pleases while our Congress sits back and watches him do it – like they are somehow under the influence of Obama like a man who is drunk is under the influence of alcohol.
We the people are granted the right to bear arms by the second amendment – and it needs to stay that way.
