Obama to announce most aggressive gun-control plan in 45 years

Not letting a crisis go to waste, the POS in the White House is striking while the iron is hot.

Tomorrow, Jan. 15, 2013 — a month and two days after the Sandy Hook school massacre — the POS will formally announce the most aggressive and expansive national gun-control agenda in generations as he presses Congress to mandate background checks for all firearm buyers and prohibit assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips.


Philip Rucker reports for the Washington Post, Jan. 15, 2013, that in the weeks ahead, Obama will attempt to rally popular support to bend the will of lawmakers to vote for what he considers the ideal, not merely the possible.

Tomorrow, as he announces his gun control plan, Obama will be surrounded by children invited to attend. The children allegedly had written letters to Obama after last month’s shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., which killed 20 first grade children and 6 adults.

In addition to background checks and restrictions on military-style guns and ammunition magazines, Obama is expected to propose mental health and school safety initiatives such as more federal funding for police officers in schools, according to lawmakers and interest group leaders whom White House officials briefed on the plans.

Obama also is expected to present up to 19 executive orders, including enhanced federal scientific research on gun violence and a modernized federal database system to track guns, criminals and the mentally ill.

Most of these actions are relatively narrow in scope, however, and experts have said that without accompanying legislation they will do little to curb gun violence, at least in the near term.

Asked about the constraints on Obama’s executive powers, the POS’s mouthpiece Jay Carney said, “It is a simple fact that there are limits on what can be done within existing law.”

Obama’s proposals amount to the most comprehensive federal regulations of the firearms industry since 1968, when President Lyndon B. Johnson acted in the aftermath of high-profile assassinations.

As you watch the POS make the announcement tomorrow, just remember that he recently signed a bill that provides retired U.S. presidents — which he presumably will be after 2016 — with the Secret Service’s armed protection for life.

  1. This son of a whore is fixing to stick his hand in a badger whole! He has NO IDEA what he is going to start! It will be his DOWNFALL! The American people are tired of these NOBODIES telling them what they can and can’t do. I’ll be glad to see it come to a head, and run these Socialist out of our government, once and for all, then put laws in where that Socialist and Communist can NOT HOLD ANY OFFICE! That means that Feinstein and here gun grabbing buddies are HISTORY along with Bama and Biden! Semper Fi.


  2. When I saw the article regarding “children to attend press conference” on Drudge Report this morning, it upset me to my core. Libs always say, “do it for the sake of the children” in order to play upon emotions and plant fear into voters, but what is planned tomorrow is exploitation of the lowest order. I mean, this has to be the lowest yet. Of course the media talking heads will be talking and showing clips of this ad nauseum. Smh. I pray that people will see through this ruseand realize they are being played (as always) by sleazy politician ideologists who want to push their agenda onto we the people.

    Once the 2nd goes, then the 1st and the 4th will go somewhere shortly after. (I really don’t think people understand just how important the 4th is. Just take a look at the disgusting video of those Texas troopers doing a body cavity search on the side of the road. Absolutely disgusting and unbelievable that this kind of abuse is happening to our citizens!!!


    • Sorry for the rambling and typos. Just flat out exhausted from all the insanity on steroids that is currently happening. It has been coming but man, this is just like walking into some kind of technicolor soul twisting nightmare.

      Our congress (and ny gov) has officially gone 100% rogue.


  3. Makes not a damn bit of difference to me what the POS flicks his little pen over a piece of paper and signs 1000 signatures on executive orders cause the jackass isn’t my President. I have zero respect for him and zero respect for his administration as the have done absolutly nothing to earn it. If he wants my weapons he can try and come get them…………………………………….


  4. Miche, first off the 2nd amendment isn’t going anywhere. That will be the match that lights the fuse and they know it.
    Second thank you for the idea of my post today. Molon Labe


  5. Great choice of photo. I don’t know if Sam Elliott is a tough guy in real life, but the roles he plays usually reflect to kind of courage Americans admire.


  6. I do not and never will support dictator obummer on defiling our 2nd amendment rights
