If Americans have learned anything about the zealots who claim to seek “common sense” solutions to the non-existent epidemic of gun violence it’s that they will never be satisfied until Big Brother has stripped every law abiding gun owner of every weapon.
Last week, Coach is Right published “Nobody Wants to Take Your Guns,” an article which reveals the true intentions of 2nd Amendment foes from the late Senator John Chafee to Handgun Control Inc, prior to its transformation into the Brady Bunch. And the agenda of the left has not changed over the years.
During a recent appearance on Boston Public Radio (WGBH), Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans said:
“For the most part, nobody in the city needs a shotgun, nobody needs a rifle and… especially here in the city I want to have discretion over who’s getting any type of gun because public safety is my main concern.”
Evans puts the arrogance of the left on full display as he presumes to decide what gun owners need and what, if anything, they should be permitted to have. Imagine the outcry should a conservative claim the authority to decide whether liberals need to speak and what, if anything, they should be permitted to say! What? Treat First Amendment rights with the same degree of contempt liberals have for our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms?
Most Americans have caught on to the fabrications of our Liar in Chief as he declares his respect for the 2nd Amendment. During his campaign against John McCain, Obama said “I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.” Some three weeks ago, the left succumbed to a state of rapture over Obama’s shedding of crocodile tears as he announced his Executive Orders against gun ownership. Even so, few Americans were fooled when he told his audience, “I believe in the 2nd Amendment.”
Yet Obama never tires of proclaiming his appreciation for the right to keep and bear arms. Do his actions mirror his words?
• opposed a bill in the Illinois legislature which would have protected homeowners from weapons charges if they used an “illegal” gun in self-defense.
• voted to ban gun stores within five miles of a school or park, which would have eliminated most gun stores in America.
• proposed to make it a felony for a gun owner whose firearm was stolen from his residence which caused harm to another person if that weapon was not securely stored in that home.”
• supported a federal ban on concealed carry laws. As a Presidential candidate he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review “‘I am not in favor of concealed weapons,’ as ‘I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations.’”
Obama also said he believes in the “common-sense” gun laws of Australia and England, which required mass confiscation and gun bans.
Examples of Barack’s deeds not supporting his pro-2nd Amendment claims go on and on. Yet he keeps telling the same obvious lies. Does he really believe the American people are that stupid?
Sure! After all, they elected HIM twice.
