Sorry Mr. President...

You are not telling the complete truth.

Every single gun owner in America uneqivocally knows that...


Every single time!

Every time and in every place that "commonsense" gun laws get enacted, they always end up the same way — confiscation. Every time. There is not one single exception out there. So Mr. President, we gun owners are a little tired of hearing how you really really love us and how you'll really really respect us in the morning, because we know in our bones, in our DNA, how that song ends.

Every single "commonsense" gun control law suggested by our enemies has been nothing but a blatant attempt to circumvent D.C. v. Heller and strip us of our Constitutional rights. Every single one. There is nothing new in the current crop of nonsense; it is the same old crap stew rewarmed and served up yet again.

I do, however, have several "commonsense" gun laws we can all support, Mr. President, and I'm sure you'll get behind them right away — national CCW reciprocity! And here's another one — don't let agencies of the U.S. government illegally smuggle guns into foreign nations! Heck, even Eric "My People My People" Holder can get behind that one! How about respecting safe transport laws, laws that you're sworn to uphold and your home city of Chicago ignores? Maybe give ole Rahm a call and tell him that Chicago, regardless of how sleazily it operates, is still part of the United States and subject to her laws. How's that for common sense?

To borrow a phrase from the Who, "Won't be fooled again..."

Mr President, I do not trust you with respect to your motives on guns. You and your attny gen have made clear statements in your past that are anti second amendment. Your administration already has some 'splaining to do regarding deceptive and potentially anti-gun activities on our border which appear to have been intended to make a crisis that was not intended to go to waste. . You have plenty on your to get americans back to work and reducing the debt. Leave us the hell alone. Simply enforce the existing law, without enhancement.

With the Heller and Chicago decisions, reciprocity should be a mute point. The 14th amendment is applied here, hence, we can all carry, at least openly right? Even communist states like Illinois, CA, ect, that do not have ARMS in the state constitutions must now all abide by the 2nd amendment. And if they dont, you sue. Problem solved.

How can you trust a man who authorizes the US government to permit the sale and transport of firearms to drug dealers and nacro-traffickers in Mexico and then calls for commonsense gun laws?

I imagine they'd be as transparent and honest as Obamacare.

Mr.President in your own words of recent to another head of state....
" Its time for you to go . "

Re. just one of the President's weaselly worded BS points: How much "faster" does NICS need to be? I doubt the longest it ever took me was five minutes, and that was on a weekend during the height of the post-election 2008 madness. Is that such a problem, Mr. President? I wish you were so concerned about every other Federal intrusion on my time!

Excellent points Michael. And no, this man is not fooling anybody.

“A man our Army rejected as unfit for service; a man one of our colleges deemed too unstable for studies; a man apparently bent on violence, was able to walk into a store and buy a gun,” Obama also wrote, referring to Jared Lee Loughner, who is charged in the Tucson shooting.

“We should provide an instant, accurate, comprehensive and consistent system for background checks to sellers who want to do the right thing, and make sure that criminals can’t escape it,” he added."

Nice non-sequitur. AFAIK, Laughner had no criminal record. So how would a background check have stopped him? Does a background check stop a sale if a guy's college deems him "too unstable for studies?"

Obama is being either dishonest or stupid.

Common sense ..... if the other side comes to the table with something to offer like nationwide CCW, and an end to policies that limit carry to persons of privilege, power and influence we can have that dialog they've been looking for. If they just want to talk about new restrictions, without giving anything back, there is nothing to discuss.

I've been anxiously waiting for Obama's long awaited statement on guns following the incident in Tucson.
If this was it, then I'm relieved. Given the circumstances and his pals in the anti-gun industry, this was pretty watered down in my opinion.
None of what he said was new or confrontational. As usual he picks the path of least resistance and drives right down the middle of the road without hitting a curb on either side.
He had to make some kind of statement after Tucson, he promised he would and this was it. Just lip-service to the anti-gunners and nothing more. Nothing will come of this. Too many pro gun rights folks are watching.(thank god)
The worst part is that if he keeps on driving right down the middle of the road, well that's the road to re-election I'm sorry to say.
People don't like change per se and all he has to do is do nothing to get re-elected.

OK Mr Bane, this one JUST in!!

Ruger is coming out with a new pistol in honor of Obama.

It will be named the “Union Worker”.

It doesn’t work and you can’t fire it.

(ba dum dump!)

Couldn't agree more. And just like his first campaign, he'll pull another switcheroo after the election.

Look for a major assault on our 2-A Rights via "agency action" vs. action by the Congress. The "Mexican Connection" blow-up has surely put a spin-delay on moving forward, because they don't have that man-made disaster to "not waste". Note that the MSM has totally ignored that one? There's a lot of "chatter" on the opposing side's media that says "Look Out!" to me.
