IT WAS INEVITABLE … OBAMA IS COMING AFTER YOUR GUNS.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,
the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” (Second Amendment)
Lame duck Barack Obama is looking to once again fundamentally transform America and directly attack the Second Amendment. CNN is to host a town hall meeting at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia where Obama will look to push gun control even though the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states that Americans have the right to bear arms. Sorry, but I don’t trust a word this man says. So he wants to get rid of the guns that protect Americans, really? So then why are the guns not taken away that protect politicians? If Americans allow this to stand, it is the death of liberty. Please do not let this man destroy this country any more than he already has.
President Barack Obama is mounting a final-year push to make gun control part of his legacy despite Republican opposition and is expected to announce unilateral action soon.
He will join CNN’s Anderson Cooper Thursday for an exclusive one-hour live town hall on gun control at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, in hopes of mounting a final pitch to the public.
It’s an issue he has had zero success on so far in his presidency, despite his repeated, emotional appeals for change. Congress has remained a roadblock even in the face of widespread public support for Obama’s past calls for universal background checks or bolstered mental health support, with near uniform opposition from Republicans and a split on the issue among Democrats.
Obama will sit down with Cooper at 8 p.m. ET for the event, titled “Guns in America.” The event’s timing coincides with the fifth anniversary, next Friday, of the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, in a rampage that left six dead and 13 others wounded.
On January 4, President Obama will meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to finalize the executive gun controls expected to be announced next week.
During his first weekly radio address of 2016 Obama said:
A few months ago, I directed my team at the White House to look into any new actions I can take to help reduce gun violence. And on Monday, I’ll meet with our Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, to discuss our options.
Because I get too many letters from parents, and teachers, and kids, to sit around and do nothing. I get letters from responsible gun owners who grieve with us every time these tragedies happen; who share my belief that the Second Amendment guarantees a right to bear arms; and who share my belief we can protect that right while keeping an irresponsible, dangerous few from inflicting harm on a massive scale.
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump told supporters Saturday that he will veto President Obama’s actions on guns if elected to the White House.
“The Second Amendment, it’s so great to me,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Biloxi, Miss.
“We’re not changing the Second Amendment.”
Trump said to loud cheers that there is an “assault” on the Second Amendment as Obama considers executive action on gun control.
“I will veto that. I will unsign that so fast,” Trump said.
