NRA says Biden task force leading a ‘blatant attack’ on 2nd Amendment
Obama and his stooges are drinking their liberal Kool-Aide and taking away what is left of our freedom.
After reading the text of the comments from the Obama administration on gun control, it should be plain and obvious to even the dumbest Obamatrons that their intentions are not to make life better for all Americans. Obama and his henchmen are stripping away the very foundation of the constitution itself.
Let me say it again for those of you in the north eastern part of the country that are too stupid to understand how to tie your shoes, let alone grasp the concept of the message I am trying to convey here on my site.
Without the second Amendment to the constitution, there is no need for the first amendment.
People argue all the time about the language contained in both the first and second amendment, but there is a reason for them being in the order that they are in and why they are numbers one and two in the first place.
The founding fathers all came from countries that were ran by the modern day equivalent of despots that were taxing them out of existence.
Furthermore, if one were to actually have an opinion about it that contradicted the King or queen, one could lose his or her head.
So when they wrote the amendments to the constitution, they first added language about freedom of speech, then about the right to keep and bear arms to protect the first.
Liberal scholars and democrats keep pointing to “Well armed militia” in the second amendment and calling it “antiquated” in an attempt to discount its meaning.
There is a profound reason for us having a second amendment and its for what has been going on in Washington for the last 100 years. To keep our leaders from doing what they are doing right now. Stripping away our freedoms and replacing them with tyrannical laws rules and programs that make America no different from all the shitbox nations on earth.
If anyone were to read what the founding fathers of America thought about these two incredibly important amendments, they would see that they were not written to protect the country, they were written to protect the people from the same kind of tyrannical government that these people left behind in their countries of origin.
SO lets watch as Joe Biden, who many call the dumbest man in Washington and Obama disregard mental health and instead use the kids of Sandy Hook Elementary school as pawns in a sick game of chess where are freedom is the loser. JD
The National Rifle Association emerged from a meeting Thursday with Vice President Biden and accused his gun violence task force of leading an “attack” on the Second Amendment — just hours after
Biden gave a glimpse into the gun-control recommendations expected to hit the president’s desk in a matter of days.
The vice president said earlier that “an emerging set of recommendations” focuses on launching “universal” background checks, restricting high-capacity magazines and allowing federal agencies to do more research on gun violence.
He revealed where the task force was headed a day after drawing outrage from Republican lawmakers by saying the administration might use “executive orders” to implement some policies. He said he plans to have the recommendations, which are not yet final, to President Obama by Tuesday.
But the NRA, after sitting down with Biden and other firearms groups Thursday afternoon, blasted the effort as primarily focused on restricting gun rights.
“We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment,” the group said in a written statement. “While claiming that no policy proposals would be ‘prejudged,’ this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners — honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans.
“It is unfortunate that this administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen.”
Aside from the NRA, Biden also met Thursday with sports groups like the Outdoor Industry Association and firearms groups like the
National Association of Arms Shows. Attorney General Eric Holder and other Obama Cabinet secretaries were meeting as well with Walmart and several other sports retailers.
Biden said the list of possible recommendations so far includes a call for “universal background checks.” He said this would include not just closing the so-called gun show loophole but imposing background checks for all transactions, including private sales.
He also said, “I’ve never heard quite as much about the need to do something about high-capacity magazines as I’ve heard spontaneously from every group that we’ve met with so far.”
Biden planned to round out the day with a meeting Thursday evening with entertainment industry representatives. On Friday, he plans to meet representatives from the video game industry.
Still, much of the discussion, and proposals from Democratic members of Congress, continue to center around gun control.
Biden drew complaints from Republican lawmakers when he suggested Wednesday, while meeting with gun control groups, that the administration might go around Congress to implement some provisions.
“There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken,”
Biden said. He also said separate legislative action would be “required.”
“Vice President Biden would do well to read the 2nd Amendment and revisit the meaning of the phrase ‘shall not be infringed,’” Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said in a statement. “Bypassing Congress to implement radical policies is never acceptable.”
The White House and the NRA have found little common ground as the two groups craft separate responses to the tragedy.
The NRA, after staying silent for several days after the Connecticut school massacre, eventually called for a national school security plan to install armed officers at every school in the country.
The White House, though, has suggested that plan would not be effective.
But the NRA and other firearms group say the same about proposed restrictions on certain weapons types, noting that assault weapons are not often used in the commission of violent crimes — handguns are more common.
The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Obama was considering measures beyond reinstating a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. According to the paper, the task force was considering measures like universal background checks for gun buyers, a national gun database, strengthening mental health checks and tougher penalties for people carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors.
Gun-advocacy groups, including Arizona for Gun Safety, the Brady Campaign, the Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, attended a meeting with Biden Wednesday.
Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, after the meeting affirmed that administration officials “talked about … their willingness to use executive action where that’s appropriate.”
