Obama Mouthpiece Clueless About Why Americans Buy Guns

buying gunsIt’s tragic.

He fails to understand.

Why are so many people doing it?

Make no mistake, when Josh Earnest, The White House press secretary makes a public announcement, he is channeling Obama.

On December 10, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said it is “tragic” that Americans are pouring into gun stores to buy weapons because America is already “awash in guns.”

According to the Washington Times, Earnest was speaking in light of recent high-profile shootings and the San Bernardino terror attack when he said, “The more that we see this kind of violence on our streets, the more people go out and buy guns. That is both ironic and tragic.”

He added:

In some cases these are individuals who believe that they need to buy a gun so that they can better protect themselves. In some cases because it’s Black Friday, they probably are going and purchasing a gift for a friend or a loved one who is a gun enthusiast. I’m just pointing out that there are already an astonishing number of guns on the streets of America and far too many innocent Americans who are being killed by them.

Earnest indicated that he does not know why the American people are so drawn to guns, but he said it is “tragic” that people go out and purchase them in response to incidents like the San Bernardino attack.

Hey Josh, you might wanna pass this along to your Boss:

People aren’t buying guns in response to what happened in San Bernardino.

They’re buying guns because of what your boss said, (and always says) in response to these mass shootings.

Pretty ironic and tragic neither of you guys get it.

    And Josh, are you suggesting that people are violating federal law and making straw purchases? If they are buying a gift gun and do not bring in the gift participant to get the NICS check … oh well, we just like to make laws, not enforce them.

    • gunnygil

      Especially professional politicians who deem themselves above the laws they write and pass. But apparently there are a majority of voters who think the same way. No that the voters are above the law, but their Massa’s

      OHH JIMIE, THIS STUPIT FEMERIAL IN THE doj WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN! SHE WILL TARGET ONLIES WHITE-PEOPLE and congress will go along with it. ciuz the congress is afraid if they do not that the people will take them out first!?

  • Lily Haley

    Just before Obama was inaugurated for the second term he kept saying his priority would be gun control. I kept wishing he would be charged with perjury for lying when he took his oath to uphold the Constitution.

    • rome44

      An Executive Order is not the law of the land. When congress decides to legislate a sensible gun law the executive order melts away. I find it mind boggling that people like you never offer a solution for gun violence so i’ll ask this; Does the loss of human life mean anything to you according to stats 30,000 Americans lose their life every year to gun violence, does the sanctity of life even enter the realm of compassion for these innocent victims.
      You exaggerate that he perjured himself, because he didn’t touch the second Amendment, if you’re a law abiding citizen you won’t even notice the difference when you go buy a weapon. How much trouble could it be for you and I to register our guns if it saves lives. It will only effect you if you’ve broken the law and convicted of a felony or you have mental issues or others factors that effect your judgement.

      • Gary

        rome44 – We DO NOT have a “gun violence” problem!! Guns are NOT violent!! PEOPLE are violent. Law abiding citizens, with their millions of guns, are not out killing people with their guns. Criminals and terrorists are doing that, and no “gun control” is going to stop THEM… it will only stop us from protecting ourselves. If you don’t like guns, don’t buy one!

        • rome44

          Well, if we don’t have a gun violence problem, who then is killing the 30,000 Americans every year. If you had read my comments I did say law abiding citizens will not be effected. But mostly you are a good example of people who never mention the victims as if their lives don’t matter. If you stay on this topic you will notice I will be pilloried for my comments but none will ever mention the lives of the victims.
          I suspect that to these people human life doesn’t matter they view the loss of life is a price others should pay, there is no sympathy, concern, theres not even a tear shed. I also suspect these people are devoid of their humanity.
          The president’s measure does not impede your right to own or buy arms. True it won’t stop the senseless killing of innocents altogether but it may save some lives and that to me is worth it.
          You are pointing in the wrong direction when you mention criminals & terrorists because it’s not them causing the mayhem we witness, most are lone wolves who kill because they are demented sick freaks of nature.
          Telling me if I don’t like guns not to buy one is a cop out cause it’s not about me personally but it’s a national epidemic and you know that. So I will suggest you seek a solution for the prevention to this killings instead of telling me not to buy one. I already have one and I have no problem registering if it helps curb the violence.

          • Mikial

            You clearly have not read or analyzed Obama’s worthless “measures.” He did absolutely nothing, since nothing he did changes any existing laws or adds to them. They are simply political tricks to make it look like he is doing something and to try to build the anti-Second Amendment hysteria. Gary is correct, it isn’t guns that are the problem, it is people. Obama and Clinton and all the Liberals empower inner city scum to burn stores and attack police and do whatever they want because they tell them they are nothing but poor victims.

            Set 1000 guns on a table and I guarantee no matter how long you watch them they will not fly off the table and kill anyone. but take guns from law abiding citizens and there will be 1000 deaths within a few days because the scum on the streets will know they can do whatever they want to the old, women, the weak because no one can stop them.

            Your reasoning is flawed, and you are living in the la-la land people like Obama and Clinton have pushed you into. I have carried a gun for many years and I have never murdered anyone, but i know that if my wife and I are attacked, we will not be defenseless.

            You are just spouting the same Liberal garbage that the government has taught you to spout so that the rights of the people who actually work and keep this country going can be destroyed.

          • rome44

            By your own admission this measure doesn’t effect you in the lest. This is not about Obama nor me it is about the loss of life of innocent people, a situation you don’t want to face. it’s about compassionate people looking out and trying to put a stop to these mass killing taking place across our country.
            What I said earlier about folks like you is proving me correct it’s always about your gun (an animate object) taking precedence over human life.
            I want to know how a person such as yourself will stand by and watch the carnage and yet demonize folks who work simply to stop the mass killing of our people. I want to know do you even possess the ability to feel anything when you see families devastated by the loss of their loved ones. Are you devoid of your humanity does the question even mean nothing to you ?

          • Franie

            Get a clue…it’s about the mentally sick in our society that should be in Sanitarium’s. Don’t be judging the actions of a few to punish the masses. Why don’t you start a movement to put the psychos back behind closed doors.

          • David Kledzik

            Exactly, marxists/socialists at their finest.

          • rome44

            Our Constitution forbids the office of the presidency beyond 2 four year terms Obama has 1 yr. left of his second term, so I ask you what domination and control are you speaking of ? Your questions appear to come from a person sorely lacking education. You don’t seem to know how our political system works. You sound ridiculous.

          • Franie

            And you sound absolutely clueless. Since WHEN has Obama paid any attention to our Constitution? Just the other day he referred to it as a “piece of paper”. He has mention numerous times that it should be changed as it was written hundreds of years ago and doesn’t pertain to today society. What the hell do you call his numerous executives actions? Actions that give him complete control to call for martial law, etc. Why do you think he circumvents Congress EVERY chance he gets when he wants something done immediately? What the hell do you think his pen &phone are all about?

            You obviously cannot put history together from the past seven years to SEE and UNDERSTAND the damage Obama and his administration is doing and has done to these United States. You liberals are a clueless lot, but what else would you expect from a liberal democrat party. Democrats and liberal progressives are the party of DEATH, DESTRUCTION, PERVERSION and UNGODLINESS!!! All of your eyes are shut tight and your hearts are hardened, especially to reality.

          • rome44

            You never answer my questions or counter my points, instead you come back with more ramblings. I know your tactics already you don’t know how to debate an issue, you think it’s all about throwing everything and anything you can find but it’s all for nothing I don’t care to engage you in endless rubbish that leads nowhere. Why don’t you call it a day and move on ?

          • Franie

            Never saw a question. So what is your question? Counter what points? You’re not getting it and refuse to open your eyes and ears and look at what Obama does and compare it to what he says. Your problem is you actually believe the LIAR-IN-CHIEF. Problem is you don’t know how to debate or debunk the facts, for you have no facts. You live on the surface and are one of the most gullible fools I’ve come across. To actually believe ANYTHING that comes out of Obama’s mouth, tells me volumes about how utterly clueless you are. Just know that you will be one of the first sheep to be slaughtered when the SHTF!!!

          • rome44

            This has nothing to do with Obama you should know that by now. If any one can say the same thing by shifting words around thinking it enhances your position go sit on the railroad tracks for all the efforts you put into saying nothing.

          • worn out 123

            It has everything to do with American socialists and communists because that’s Obama’s agenda.

          • worn out 123

            Not when one understands Barry is just the pawn of others who “donated” to his election campaign. He does THEIR bidding and they will try their best to have the next president continue THEIR bidding.

          • worn out 123

            This IS about every law abiding citizen. Why do you think gun sales are on a sharp rise? Encouraging lawless is part of this administrations effort to disarm American citizens. Government is not representing Americans who work.
            Simply put, this government wants the savings of the working class. FOLLOW THE MONEY!!
            It has and continues stealing the social security funds (taxes) paid into by the working class for decades, unnecessarily and immorally borrowing from other nations (hidden taxes) at an unprecedented rate. Next government will invade our saving and retirement accounts. (Already being discussed by our government & the IMF)
            You cannot see the forest for the trees.

          • rome44

            It is not about law abiding citizens, Obama’s Exe. Action does not impact you in the lest. Where under havens name do you come up with such an absurd statement that our gov. encourages lawlessness to disarm Americans? It just boggles my mind what friggin’ alternate universe do you live in ?
            You are way too far out there for me man.
            Gov. wants taxes not your guns. As for savings if before taxes they tax when you withdraw your funds. I ought to know I’m retired and I’m being taxed as I make withdrawals.
            Concerning SS thats true, our debt also true, that the gov. is going to invade our retirement funds NOT TRUE.

          • worn out 123

            Not today. When our guns are taken is another story.

            “If I had a son . . . .” What? He would have been a thug attacking anyone who might ask who he was or what he was doing in a neighborhood. That B.S. was only sympathy for the parents of a violent thug. Not becoming a president, the head of all security as such. Ferguson: Another thug attacked and this president sent out his statement that he “knew how they must feel.”?? That was the green light to riot and riot they did. Those were just two incidences where this president couldn’t just shut up when he had no business making speeches encouraging people to feel like victims when THEY WERE NOT VICTIMS.

          • Dash Riprock

            Moron democrack, dopobama’s E/O of gun control by the numbers don’t mean squat.
            Until those laws the dictator wanna be punk spewed are legislated in congress and approved by the senate they are nothing but idle threats coming from a useless power addict and should be ignored by all law abiding gun owners. Well known is his agenda of confiscation and it’s not going to work this time either. He is dwarfed by the gun lobby which is greater than he and the congress combined. His wasted breath will be in court longer then the time he has left in office and the only thing that will be accomplished is the usual waste of money and time that your dear leader is known so infamously for. Law abiding gun owners will go about their business and dopobama’s words will again be the butt of insignificance. Your dear leader has proven himself once again as unworthy of his position in power as well as in life.

          • sjerseydevil

            If you believe the lies, half truths and skewed statistics fed to you in the president’s Tue. speech without dong some research on your own then go ahead and believe him. One total lie was that anyone could buy guns on the internet without a background check. That is just one. I chalange you to try to purchase a firearm over the internet, at a gun show, and from a gun store, Only them will you believe. As far as the numbers of persons killed I do not know how he eve dared t include those killed by Radical Muslim Terrorists and claim them as gun violence. The numbers he presented were frhis agenda and for political purposes only and did in no way represent the deaths and/or injuries caused by legal US Citizen gun owners.. Healsi totally neglected to present the number of robberies, homeinvasions, carjackings etc. that were thwarted by legal gun owners. If you want to be concerned about people being killed check out how many are killed by automobiles, legal prescription drugs, and Dr. malpractice.

          • papawfred

            And how many vets have died WAITING to get treatment in Obamas V A. How many unborn babies have been killed/murdered by liberals in abortion factories then their body parts sold to the highest bidder. How many Christians and others have been killed by Obamas and Hillerys created ISIS. How many people WILL be killed when Iran gets the bomb. Will he shed a tear for any of these human lives. NO. Damm liberal hypocrites.

          • rome44

            Why present me with a myriad of half baked stories, aren’t you sitting on front of your PC/ internet. It’s very easy for you to check for the inaccuracies you claim he made.
            I have been to gun shows while licensed dealers are required to do background checks individual sellers do not.
            The 30,000 figure comes from Mother Jones, right now I’m waiting on an answer from the Congressional Research Service, you see I do verify.
            Nidal Hasan stationed at Ft. Hood killed 13 and wounded 32 was soldier turned terrorist should be included.
            I don’t know what lies or half truths you speak of, but here is a few recorded historical incidents from a long list of mass murders within the last 10 yrs. the list is much, much longer;
            1. San Bernardino Ca. 12/03/15 14 dead 21 injured
            2. Ump qua college Or. 10/01/15 9 dead 9 inj.
            3. Charleston Church SC 06/17/15 9 dead 1 Inj.

            4. Wash. Navy Yard 09/16/13 13 dead 8 Inj.
            5. Newtown School 12/14/12 28 dead 2 Inj.
            6.Aurora Theater CO. 07/20/12 12 dead 58 Inj.
            7. Ft. Hood TX. 11/05/09 13 dead 30 Inj.
            8. Virginia Tech 04/17/07 33 dead 23 Inj.
            9. Columbine High School 04/20/99 15 dead 24 Inj.
            10. Luby’s Cafeteria TX. 10/16/91 24 dead 20 Inj.

            The figures are not generated by Obama but by agencies like the FBI and other gov. agencies I mentioned CRS already, don’t believe Obama do your own due diligence. Obama has i yr. left in office what political agenda do you speak of.
            I saw the president surrounded by many family members of victims killed by gun violence applauding his actions.
            No one has ever claimed deaths are only by gun violence but even if we include them what does it contribute to the issue at hand. It’s just a distraction to neglect the issue of gun violence it helps no one.

          • Franie

            So for a 176 deaths and 206 injured, you want to disarm this entire nation. Yikes!!! You have now established yourself as not only a sap, but a MORONIC and IMBECILIC SAP at that!!!

            It’s people like you that are destroying all that is good and righteous in this country. Have you any clue as to who CAIR is??? They are the Muslim Brotherhood who are working hand in hand with the Muslim in the White House, along with the POS Muslim administration to bring tens of thousands of Syrian and Muslim refugees (ISIS & other terrorist org.) into this nation for a takeover. AND you want us to disarm? especially since their goal is to behead the infidel?? Do you even know what an infidel is?? EVERYONE who is NOT of the Islamic faith!

            We are not in agreement, You do not even agree that the President’s speech was a Political agenda. He did his very best in that speech to make Republicans the “Bad guys”. (I am an Independant). The audience was selected to support everything he said. I agree that we do not see things in the same way. So be it. we have different opinions…

          • rome44

            I can’t say for sure but this I do know he promised the parents of the children of Sandy Hook he would do something about after congress voted down any measures, our own congressmen refuses to do anything. I’m also sure he consulted the Justice Depts. lawyers that he was on legal footing.
            If you don’t mind my asking why do you object to legislation that makes an attempt to curb these senseless killings. What is your opinion what should we do then ?

          • sjerseydevil

            I am as concerned as you are about the sensekess kilings. I am partcularly concered with the mass shootings. Most of these have been committed by persons that are mentally unstable, or terrorists. In the 1950’s most persons diagnosed with mental illnesses that made them a threat to others were instutionalized. In the years since then it has been that in most cases these persons rights were being violated and that they shoud be turned loose but medicated to “control” them. Three problems occur. 1. They do not take, or run out of the medication. 2. In many cases they are not supervised..3. The “HIPPA” laws as presently wrtten do not allow their mental conditions to be put into the databases used for background checks.
            I agree that persons diagnosed with certain mental conditions should not be allowed to own a frearm, .
            Again, back to the 1950s, Beer, Whisky, wine & Cigarettes were the drugs of the day in most parts of the country. In my rural area there were usually several guns in every home. . Most arguments were settled with fist fight & there were no shootings all the years I was in Grammar & High School no one was shot except 1 hunting accident . Gangs fought over blocks of the city that was “:their turf”, fights were mostly with fists, occasionally knives or bats, and once in a while a home made single shot “Zip Gun”. Since the 60’s when the Drug Culture started everything changed. The gangs now fight over Drug territory, The slightest argument is now settled with a gun, within the drug culture a life means nothing. Somehow the value of life has depreciated to nothing. kids are being killed for a cell phone or a pair of sneakers. Drive by shootings kill and wound the intended victims and bystanders Most of the guns used in these crimes are either stolden from legal gun owners, or are bought n the black market. From pictures on TV many are High Cost Modern weapons ourchased on the black market. I am not sure where these sellers of Black Market guns get them, but it is nt from licensed dealers. These sellers and their sources need to be put out of bsiness by all available law enforcement sources at all levels of Govt.
            An article I read earlier today said that the majority of gun deaths in the figres the president quoted were suicde.It is not easy to know who will kill themselves, Hopefully beter mental health treatment would prevent some of this. Some suicides are related to drug use, and others are persons suffering from disease. Familes & friends need to be aware and act to remove weapons from persons with any sign of risk.. More, but no more time tonight. :

            The true number is fourteen thousand something violent homocides as of 2014, and of those slightly under eight thousand are by guns. And of those more than half are from felons gangbangers and drug deals gone bad. These numbers come straight from the FBI statistics on violent crime. 30,000 is a blatant lie, and anyone who believes it isnt checking the facts. U.S.- 1rst in gun ownership, -111th in gun crime, U.S. 58th in violent crime. Source UN world statistics on crime, 2014. Anti gunners don’t deal with facts now do they wornout123.

            Rome, please tell me the name of at least one country in which firearms have NOT been confiscated after national registration! Next, understand that two thirds of your thirty thousand committed suicide with firearms…that’s not an accident or a criminal usage, now is it? And I would rather have those people use a firearm than a car and plow into a family on the road. And yes, I have responded to at least four car suicides. And it’s not a national epidemic at all since we have more than one firearm for each man, woman, other, and child in the country…all the while with violent crime falling by major figures. You do realize that a bunch of thugs are killing other thugs, right? And good people are being killed by thugs while they practice their trade. And yes, there are some accidental shootings although not many…not as many as people killed by bicycles or swimming pools.

I also suspect these people are devoid of their humanity” TOO? Hmm?

            Just an example of your wrong thinking. #1 assault weapon in America today is the box cutter. BAN ALL BOX CUTTERS! Silly thought isn’t it? So what is the TRUE intent of disarming all law abiding citizens?

          • rome44

            Fella you need repetition because so far you haven’t been able to grasp the meaning of no one is trying to disarm law abiding citizens. I have said this to you several times to no avail seems you are unable to understand, I don’t what else to tell you. Go join a citizens group that agrees with you. Just don’t know.

          • rome44

            Yea, silly me thanks for pointing it out.

          • worn out 123

            Whoever it is won’t stop because you pass a law. You will only create more helpless victims.

      • Franie

        “How much trouble could it be for you and I to register our guns…..”? Tell me, you are a democrat now, aren’t you? What a moronic statement.

        ANY administration that wants you to register your guns, has the ultimate goal in mind to CONFISCATE your guns. Seriously? That statement is about as stupid as stupid gets!

        Registering your guns is the FIRST STEP to knowing WHO has guns. Once they know you have a gun, they can then come up with all kinds of excuses to take them away from you by FORCE. They can say that you suffer from depression, thereby a danger. They can say you’re too old, thereby again, a danger (senility). They can solicit the public to turn you in if someone thinks you’re nuts. Doesn’t matter if your not nuts, it’s just that anyone can say that you are. Shall I go on and on? Do you get my drift? You do know that liberals have that mental derangement thingy going on with them now, don’t you? They ‘feel’ with their feeling, they certainly don’t think with their brain.

        Who do you think are going to take the guns away from the criminals in society? You do that, and there will be an underground market to replenish their stash of guns. Just look at what Eric Holder was involved in with Fast and Furious. You really want to unarm law abiding citizens so they have no way to protect themselves? Really??? Seriously??? Think this through fella, as the clown in the White House is looking to disarm this country to set up Sharia law as soon as he declares martial law and set himself up as a dictator. Think I’m kidding?

        • rome44

          Actually you didn’t have to say anything at all. Since this is not about me it’s about the innocent victims it’s about the loss of innocent human life.
          I knew fully well when I wrote my comments there would be folks like you throwing a fit pointing out how stupid, moronic and even a democrat to boot I am for advocating some form of gun control. There are no steps in place to take your guns.
          You have a long list of reasons as to why some form of gun control is so terrible ignoring the fact that if you are a law abiding citizen this executive action does not effect you in the least, you go way over the top with exaggerations that the president wants to disarm the country that’s HOGWASH.
          I also anticipated you would not mention the victims because to you they are if no consequence their lives don’t matter, you feel they are just the price others should pay in order to have unencumbered access to guns by the deranged and criminals.
          I’m bewildered by your unfounded fears since no one is out to take your guns. Only criminals should be concerned as their means to acquire guns will be greatly reduced with time.
          I know it’s no panacea but it’s a step forward. That’s what I believe.

          • Byron Hall

            Ok Rome……I was not going to intercede until you proved how clueless you are with your “hogwash” statement regarding Obama not wanting to disarm Americans. I would suggest you read his books and pay more attention to what he does than what he says. But then again as you are a one issue person; this is about the victims…just remember removing access for law-abiding citizens creates more victims.

          • Mikial

            @rome44:disqus
            You are clearly some Liberal troll on here to dis gun owners. So, save your breath and your pixels because all your yammering about innocent victims completely ignores that a lot of potential innocent victims do not become victims because they have the means to protect themselves.

          • rome44

            No I’m not a liberal troll, didn’t anything I said sink in. You people live in a world of your own ,you simply refuse to face the fact that 30,000 lives lost to gun violence is an epidemic so again I ask does human life matter to you ?
            You have no issue blasting me because I care for these victims as opposed to you who’s only comeback is there aren’t enough armed folks out there, but tell me or rather tell the parents of all those kids murdered at Sandy Hook why didn’t they arm their kids. I don’t know who you are I can only judge you by what you say and I see a heartless person who has no regard for human life.
            I’m not dissing gun owners that is not being truthful. Legitimate gun owners are not being impacted at all unless of course you’re a felon or criminal but then again these guys are not the ones creating the carnage we see by some screwed up individuals that who the law is targeting so why get all wound up about restrictions that don’t effect you at all.

          • rome44

            Since judging by polls you are in the minority The hypocrite label belongs to you.
            You’re truly a dumbass; “I believe in owning my own guns just not others”. When did I ever make such a statement ? I never did you made that up. You claim you are worn out perhaps mentally too because you make no sense. Go back and read earlier comments you will not find such comments from me.

          • worn out 123

            You have stated you’ve been to gun shows. Never owned a gun, eh? The militia mentioned in the 2nd Amendment has been redefined by liberals. The intention was for “every able bodied citizen” to be militia. Not ones cherry picked by a corrupt government such as today’s government. You would have returning vets denied this right? That’s just a small part of where these restrictions are headed.

          • rome44

            Look you have failed to counter me with facts I have presented you, facts you would have found on your own had you made the effort, but instead you’d rather spend your time trying to insult me as if it means anything to me.

          • Franie

            Give it up rome44…….GIVE…IT…UP!! You have presented NOTHING. You are a LAUGHABLE JOKE with your idiocy. You are beyond any help from any one on this blog. You have been told way too many times by way too many people on how you just don’t get it. I guess there is something after all with the saying, ‘blinded eye and hardened heart’. Of course, being the liberal, dutiful democrat you appear to be, chances are you wouldn’t have a clue to that phrase now, would you? Know how I know that? My guess is that you never give The Lord HIS due.

          • rome44

            Nothing you could ever comprehend. As I’ve told you repeatedly tell the parents the death of their children is a laughable joke. You tire with your stupidity you are the one who can’t rationalize what you’re being presented with, to use that old adage it’s like throwing pearls to swine.

          • independent thinker

            That is .009% of the population of the US. Take out the suicides and it becomes about .004% and if you then take out the gang killings in such liberal utopias as Chicago, New Orleans, etc. the percentage goes down even more.

            A smug response.

          • Nickie Asher

            How many lives are lost to abortion? Why aren’t you sniveling about that? Those are true innocents. If I have a gun and some thug tries to harm me, he’s a dead thug. Those unborn children have no hope of defending themselves. Where is your concern for them…. Oh that’s right, you don’t care about them, only guns.

          • David Kledzik

            Other peoples 🔫 not his. Their the ones who murder innocent babies, think it’s alright that over a hundred thousand die in auto accidents each year, and of these thousands are DUI fatalities. And all the thousands of suicides that are committed by other means not by firearms. But hey, hypocrites are so shortsided huh.

          • rome44

            You are the very reason we can’t solve the issue of gun violence you muddle the issue so as to do nothing.
            While you pretend there is no problem maybe it should be you who should face the aggrieved families go ahead tell them it’s OK because we have abortions and vehicular deaths and belittle them for crying after all they are just stats they don’t mean anything, you stupid jerk.

            You assume too much, I’m trying to tackle one topic at a time but if you’ve been reading this far you know I can’t get anyone to stay on topic so why muddle the issue by including abortions.

            30,000 truly innocent lives are taken every 10 days in America thru abortion. I bet you don’t care about those REAL victims do you? Now go find your safe space. Some one may walk by with a gun and make you feel triggered if you don’t go hide.

          • rome44

            The topic is death by guns mixing abortions just muddles the issue. If you can’t stay on topic address your comments elsewhere. I don’t carry the ills of the world on my shoulders.

          • worn out 123

            The topic must include all violent deaths for a full discussion.

          • Mikial

            @rome44, I strongly suggest you immigrate to Europe. Sweden or the Netherlands would seem to fit your mindset. Bottom line . . you are a Liberal and like all Liberals, a fool. And I don;t engage in long, circular conversations with fools.

            Bye, bye and have a nice day. I’ve wasted enough time on you. This conversation is over.

            I’ve never been circular but people with inabilities to understand a simple concept have kept me repeating myself that’s a bid disconcerting I say one thing they hear something else. Good bye to you too have a nice life.

          • Franie

            Innocent victims? Tell that to those who lost their lives because they didn’t have the means nor wherewithal to defend themselves! You really think criminals are going to give up their guns?

            Damn right I’m throwing a fit! The POS in the White House has now begun with his ultimate plan to disarm the citizenry. This is his first step, to woo the saps like you with tears in his eyes to make you think what he’s doing this s for the good of the people. WRONG!! Why do you think he has ARMED the EPA, TSA, FDA, various departments of the gov’t including the BLM? Why do you think they need guns? Hmm? Why? Why do you think he refuses to close the borders letting hoards of illegal alien invaders into this country? Why do you think he’s letting hoards of criminals out of jail to roam free and kill? Hmm? You are an ignorant sap! You are wrong. This is Obama’s first step. Next step is to have doctors report those people who might have various problems like depression, etc. and put them on a register. You obviously didn’t read my response above and I am not going to reiterate it now.

            You believe what you want to believe, you stay in the dark. We live in dangerous times and it’s not because of the guns in this nation. Quite the contrary! GUNS DON’T KILL, PEOPLE KILL WITH GUNS! What an ignorant sap. You don’t think criminals WILL ALWAYS HAVE access to guns? Why would you even think of disarming law abiding citizens?

            Whether you like it or not, Obama is gearing up with his own militia, not our armed forces, to disarm us for installing sharia law in this country after he declares martial law, thereby setting his sorry, evil ass up as dictator!!

          • rome44

            It’s getting repetitious how many ways do you want it explained. I have no ulterior motives my believes are my own. Every time I see another mass killing of innocents it rips my heart out. I believe it to be my sentiments and compassion for the loss of life.
            It’s OK to throw a fit but for the right reasons, clearly you are on the wrong side of this issue.
            What do you say to the parents of those kids who were murdered at Sandy Hook or the people simply praying in church.
            I won’t entertain your conspiracy theories Obama is out in a year your tirades proved to be false Obama never sent in anyone to confiscate anyones guns.
            Guns don’t kill people, people kill people, so says the NRA, 30,000 this year alone. How many will it take before you realize we have a problem or God forbid it’s one of yours will you still be lauding the same theme.

          • Franie

            “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” and your point? Rational people don’t kill, sick and mentally deranged people kill people, and with guns too. All the more reason to be ARMED!!!

          • Franie

            Clearly you are on the wrong side of this issue. You’re a hypocrite. You being a liberal, tell me, does it just rip your heart out when innocent children are aborted? their body parts sold for money?? Hmm? Where’s your “sentiments and compassion for the loss” of their defenseless lives? No, I am not on the wrong side of this issue. Your eyes have been so blinded by the liberal mentality, it’s sickening. You are a hypocrite!!

            And, if I had children in any school K-16, I WOULD DEMAND ARMED PERSONNEL be on those premises. AND, I would applaud any teacher to carry provided they are well trained in that particular firearm.

            So, CHOKE ON THAT you liberal sap!!

          • worn out 123

            I will. This is contrary to what you are saying. Read and heed. “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” This you will likely never comprehend, I know. Nevertheless, if you ever open your mind you will understand that millions of enslaved are worth a wrongly presumed lack of safety of a far fewer few. Try reading this over until you understand the meaning. Add this: Safety is quite often merely an illusion. While no tyrant, no matter how powerful can shake the notion of freedom. You side with the tyrant for the illusion of safety that will NEVER materialize and against liberty and those who love liberty.
            Since this president has referred to restricting those guns in America at EVERY opportunity (even following the slaughter of citizens by terrorists) confiscation of all guns is merely a quite reasonable eventuality to anticipate from him and his ilk.

          • rome44

            Ben Franklin quoted that, so you’re very late with your suggestion and I do understand it quite well but thank you.
            Up until the present we have no Tyrants running our country, your tirade serves no purpose it’s hypothetical and for me to engage you is a waste of time.

          • rome44

            I’ll pay attention to you when you stop the sarcasm and realize this is a matter of life and death for some of our citizens. We should confront this epidemic on various fronts without a doubt.

          • Franie

            How about other forms of death? Where is your bleeding heart for those victims? Hmm? What a narrow minded sap!

          • rome44

            As you can see here, you can’t even deal with this issue why take on more than you can chew ?
            Narrow minded ! Really is that all you take from here ? What about solutions to the mass murder of our people?
            You can vilify me and call me names all you want but what does it contribute to the conversation ? You still haven’t said anything to the victims families not to me I seek no praise for myself only expressions of sympathy for the aggrieved.

          • worn out 123

            You sidestepped the issue. Why initiate yet more gun control when there are so many other, more effective means to control violent crime? How is it a man can murder his wife in cold blood and be back on the streets in 8 1/2 years AS A MATTER OF ROUTINE ADMINISTRATION OF [JUSTICE]?– This I have witnessed personally. HOW CAN A VERY YOUNG MAN KILL 4 PEOPLE WHILE DRIVING DRUNK AND ESSENTIALLY WALK FREE because his dad has a good income? There are many much, much, much more direct ways to reduce violence that will have several times more effectiveness.
            BTW, the right to life implies the right of that person to end his or own life.
            You’re in pain every day and night. You vomit often and are losing. Three specialists have examined and informed you you will only become sicker and be in more and more pain until you finally expire. DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE ONE HAS NO RIGHT TO END ONE’S OWN LIFE? HOW CAN YOU MAKE THIS DECISION FOR EVERYONE ELSE? Who gives YOU that right?

            Easy, recidivism, letting 46,000 criminals back on the streets, even against a major majority of law enforcements advice. Simple it fits the left’s narrative of everyone’s a victim.

            I suggest you answer your own questions. I’ve said this to you before following around every aspersion you make is never ending and leads no where. I seek an honest debate which is impossible with a person who is all over the map.

            Are you on the NRA’s payroll you seem to spend a lot of time addressing me with irrelevant mud issues. I’ve already addressed your concerns and have nothing else to add.
            Unless you can stay on topic, but you can’t it’s been my experience trying to have a meaningful conversation with you guys is like trying to herd cats.

          • worn out 123

            That’s because on are so narrow minded and opinionated.

          • worn out 123

            This “issue” is violent deaths. Why do you insist on singling out the gun deaths in particular? All violent deaths are an issue while gun deaths are a SMALL part of that. You refute the notion that gun ownership & use protects much more than gun ownership & use destroys. Why is that?

          • conservative since 1962

            Do your research and you will find that rogue shooter incidents stopped by an armed on site person, on average, has only one third or less fatalities than one that continues until stopped by the arrival of Law Enforcement personnel!
            What answer do you have for the dozen or so pairs of parents whose children would not have been killed at Sandy Hook Elementary school had there been an armed protector person at that school?
            I suspect that you will not pay attention to any facts that do not support your “all guns are evil” opinion.

          • rome44

            I’m not going on any snip hunt for you, say what you want but cite the incident accurately.
            What I would say to the parents after condolences; Had our congress performed their duties to curb gun violence by keeping these assault weapons out of the hands of deranged individuals maybe just maybe this wouldn’t have happened and that we all should work towards that goal.
            Your after the fact advise serves no purpose the children are dead already.
            Your don’t have a suspicion what you have is a hypothesis about me and is totally incorrect I never said guns are evil you made that up.

          • conservative since 1962

            Exactly what did I say that was not accurate about the Sandy Hook Elementary school rogue shooter incident?
            One third of the twenty students killed there is 6.666666! Rounded to whole numbers is 7. All the children killed over that number are probably victims of the lack of an on site armed “good guy with a gun” to stop the rogue shooter.
            BTW most of these rogue shooter incidents occur in “gun free zones” that are actually “target rich areas” for the rogue shooter rather than well defended areas!

          • rome44

            You know the answer to that as well as I do I don’t care to parse words with you. It’s all in hind sight it’s too late.

            Rome 44, I’m old enough to remember the days in the early 50’s when the gangs in NY were making ZIP GUNS that could kill just as fast. When the people that use these stolen guns, which is the majority of the time, how are we , as law abiding citizens, going to protect ourselves? The problems started when Bill Clinton decided to close the mental hospitals and turn them out on the streets. I’ve owned guns since I was very young. I’ve never shot nor attempted to shoot anyone. We have enough laws on the books today to stop guns on the street but the PC’s won’t allow the Police to do their job.

            Today we are at 310 mil. I hear stats that say there are 350 mil arms out there and in heavily populated urban areas when a punk fires at a foe or fires his gun in a drive by, there seems to result in a child getting hit by stray bullets or a madman walking up to people praying or folks in a meeting.
            If you don’t want to see more laws what do you see as a solution ?

          • Walter L. Hatfield

            It’s your right Rome 44 to own a weapon or not, my point is that a person set on killing others will use the method necessary to acomplish that goal IE; Boston Bomber. The people that steal guns will always have them, to disarm the public will make us all a VICTIM. The laws on the books right now in many cities are strict (Chicago). When Bill Clinton closed the Mental institutions he turned a lot of them out on the streets. This and the Gangs are need to get treatment (Gangs: Mandatory Sentences; Mental Challenged: Confinement to a facility that can hold them until they are deemed to be no threat to society. This and the closing of many Military bases afforded Clinton the opportunity to show a surplus. I can attest to servicemen that served our country for 16-17-18 years that were discharged so they would not receive retirement benefits.

            I’m well acquainted with my rights but thank you.
            I say one thing and you hear another, I just wonder why that is.
            I have never heard anyone having a discussion about disarming the public and neither have I.
            You yourself have said it current laws are not working and the status quo is unacceptable. No one is saying this is going to be easy or that it can be done overnight. But we have to start sometime.

            I too, can come up with all sorts of reasons as to why we shouldn’t do anything and ways to deflect the issue and blame someone, anything to thwart anyone from trying to curb this violence but innocent people are dying everyday sir.
            Just how many of these lives lost acceptable to you ?

          • independent thinker

            obama has expressed his admiration for and desire to institute the same kind of gun control they have in the UK or in Australia. Putting either one into effect REQUIRES the confiscation of firearms.
            You keep talking about victims but conveniently forget that the more difficult it is to purchase a firearm the more people that will die waiting for the sale to be approved. Here is what describes you to a T; You believe that a woman raped and bleeding out her life in an alley is somehow better than the woman explaining to the police why she shot the would be rapist lying dead at their feet.

            If you don’t mind me asking your level of education I’m not being fictitious I am curious as to why you people keep expounding a fear that Obama wants your guns, of course nothing could farther from the truth. To confiscate arms from citizens would require a constitutional amendment, do you have any idea what that involves ? In this country it will never happen not this gun totting society.
            Stop creating worst case scenarios in your head, its like a fear of shadows, we must deal with a real life and death situation.

            “Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since.”

            Quote from obama as reported in the National Review.

            “To confiscate arms from citizens would require a constitutional amendment…”
            Tell that to the people in NY who have had their guns confiscated. Tell that to the Vets who have been advised they must give up their guns. All it takes is a law such as the “assault weapon ban” passed under Clinton that bans and requires the confiscation of a class of firearms.

          • worn out 123

          • David Kledzik

            AR in the AR 15 platform stands for Armalite Rifle, the first manufacturer of said firearm. The gun grabbers like using the word assault rifle because it sounds like the boogeyman.

            What has your Grandma got to do with anything? Nothing at all.
            Most certainly. Can YOU kill with it? Can YOU run with it in your hands? That meets the LIBERAL definition of an assault rifle.
            This is the excuse used for banning certain rifles in some states today.
            In truth, a true assault rifle is any AUTOMATIC rifle that can be carried by hand, btw.
            Now try using your critical thinking. Am I not correct in your mind?

          • rome44

            I’d be ashamed to call myself independent thinker since you don’t think much. New York does have strict gun laws but had you bothered to do your due diligence you will find your statement inaccurate. Vets leaving service do have to return their arms it the law you can’t take them home.
            No one needs assault type weapons especially by criminals out in the streets of America PERIOD there is no need to justify that.

          • rome44

            I’m not repeating myself over and over again I’ve already given my views on the matter. Just follow the tape back to find your answers.

          • rome44

            You don’t understand ? Why am I not surprised, it’s not about casting blame it’s about seeking a solution to the epidemic ravishing our populace due to gun violence. While the other causes are important nothing shocks the system like the children of Sandy Hook mowed down in cold blood.
            Nothing keeps you from mourning or praying for the victims you mentioned by all means do so.

          • worn out 123

            Your “solution” only creates more victims. Obama has said on several occasions his agenda is to get guns out of the hands of citizens, period. Another reason for his decree is to distract everyone from his 8 million dollar vacation and his 1.1 Trillion dollar over-the-budget spending spree.

          • worn out 123

      • Ron Pack

        So tell me how registrating guns will save lives? Do you not realize registration was the first step to confiscation in Germany…in the Soviet Union..in China? How many lives were lost because they couldn’t protect themselves? The SCOTUS has already ruled that the police have no responsibility when it comes to protecting your miserable life. If not the police who will?

        • Peter Osborne

          Last century? 262,000,000 according to The Statistics of Democide by Dr. Rummel, it is on line, look it up.

        • rome44

          You cannot make a blank statement per se that covers gun confiscation in these countries. In China they are outlawed altogether, by the way China is a very old culture it hasn’t fallen apart because citizens don’t own guns. So this part of your argument is moot.
          Since you present a broad question with “How many lives were lost because they couldn’t protect themselves” perhaps you care to elucidate for me, I’d rather you put your question into context, I wouldn’t presume to do that for you.
          Scotus has NEVER said police have no responsibility and whose miserable life are you referring to ? Law enforcement is for the protection and safety of the public, who even questions that ? With you as an exception of course.

          • Mikial

            @rome44:disqus
            China hasn’t fallen apart? No, the people are 100% subjugated by their government because they have no power and no authority to enact a single thing to prevent their government from taking advantage of them. In large part because they are defenseless victims.

            And I might add, even though the people don’t have access to guns, there are a great many atrocities with these completely frustrated people attacking school children with knives. So, I guess gun control really isn’t the panacea you want us to think it is. What’s next . . knife control? Stick control? Rock control?

            Go back to Tumblr where you will find a willing audience for your Liberal, Socialist attitude among the adolescents.

          • rome44

            EXAGGERATION seems to be the recurring theme, anything but face the truth. Again you like all the others never admit we have a problem with guns, alway shift the blame elsewhere. I’ve heard it all before and the killings continue and damn anyone who trys to solve the problem. You attack demonize vilify muddle the issue anyway you can but never admit we have a problem. Blame those damn liberals, yea, thats the problem or better yet what problem ?

          • conservative since 1962

            It (“EXAGGERATION”) seems to be your theme, extrapolating 11,208 gun homicides (2013 statistic) into “30,000 victims of gun violence” while ignoring over 75,000 alcohol and drug related deaths. When you can admit that draconian gun control measures will not solve the problem of the misuse of a defensive piece of hardware and show a little concern for other victims then, and only then, can you point a finger at law abiding gun owners without convicting yourself of hypocrisy!

          • rome44

            Again, here you are subverting reason, the figures are all inclusive deaths caused by guns. Why do you come to me uttering other stats, just who is ignoring alcohol & drug deaths ?
            When did I ever call for draconian measures, certainly not from my comments since I never made any.
            I have repeatedly said law abiding citizens are not impacted by background checks how under havens name does that make me a hypocrite ?
            Seems to me like you take my views in and they expand inside your head like a balloon and go haywire with all kinds of things I never said or meant.
            What does it take for you to understand trying to keep guns away from felons and the mentally challenged is not the same thing as stripping citizens of their right to bear arms. Two totally different issues. Law abiding citizens will not be infringed at all. So, tell me, stop attacking me and answer the question.

          • conservative since 1962

            Just because you say something does not make it absolutely true.
            It appears that you insist on your word being accepted without question and your attacks on others are not attacks because you make them but that any disagreement with your opinions is an attack on you. That is at least a double standard if not hypocrisy!

          • rome44

            That’s not where I am at all. My attempt has been to bring attention to the killing of innocents. Judging by the venomous vitriol leveled against me I’m convinced you people can’t even figure out the concept. Since it’s foreign to you I can see where you’d think I’m hypocritical but that’s not the case.
            When you take into consideration you folks are the minority just take a look at the polls most American approve of background checks and the registering of guns.
            All the fear mongering is for naught no one is taking your arms PERIOD.

            While you continue to deny the overwhelming reason for maintaining all guns in the hands of law abiding citizens and repeating the rediculous idea that removing guns from citizens will actually lower those deaths from guns.

          • independent thinker

            ” Law enforcement is for the protection and safety of the public…” You will note that is “the public” not the individual citizen. The individual citizen is responsible for their own safety (and the safety of those they are responsible for such as children) the police are responsible for the safety for the public at large.

            Nothing said here will change your mind you have the answer to it all. Millions died in China…the same in Russia, and we all know what happened in Nazi Germany. You can’t protect yourself then you rely on someone else to do it for you. You rely on the government to protect you. I don’t want to leave that to a government that claims to protect me from myself.

        I find it ironic that those who scream loudest about the need for gun control to save lives are also the ones screaming loudest for the need for abortion on demand which takes more innocent lives in 10 days than are killed by guns in a year. If you want to talk sanctity of life, we cannot ignore that issue. If you look at just gun homicides, more babies are killed legally in 4 days than are murdered in an entire year in this country!

        I thought I might introduce some facts to the otherwise emotional discussion. I am using 2013 published death statistics – the latest data I could find. Of 33,636 gun related deaths, 63% were suicides. It should be noted that almost as many people committed suicide using a method other than a gun. Remove all the guns and people will still find a way to kill themselves. There were 11,208 gun homicides in 2013, which is almost the same as alcohol impaired driving fatalities at 10,076. Where are the tears and impassioned speeches about background checks for drivers to see if they have drunk driving arrests on their record to prevent this tragic slaughter. Drivers with a BAC of 0.08% were six times more likely to have a prior DWI conviction. I could find no breakdown of gun homicides; however, I suspect the vast majority are gang/drug related. I find it hard to believe background checks are going to slow that down at all.

        There were 32,719 auto fatalities, 30,208 accidental fall deaths, 38.856 accidental poisoning deaths and 75,472 alcohol and drug induced deaths, not to mention the 1,200,000 abortion deaths. If a person really wants to reduces death in this country, there are a number of areas to focus where you could have a much bigger impact.

        So why the obsession with gun control by the left. This is opinion, but I think it has more to do with controlling the populace than it does with preventing deaths. Many have spoken of the importance of removing guns from the citizenry for a despot to take control of a country. The outcry by the people over this has more to do with suspicion of motives by Obama and his fellow “progressives” and where he wants it to ultimately go, than it has to do with this executive action on background checks.

        • Mikial

          First, I respect the amount of work you went to in order to present an intelligent and cogent appraisal.

          Second, you are right.

        • Franie

          It goes way beyond opinion. The left, the democrats, they are all about control. Take Obamacare for instance. Obamacare was passed WITHOUT even one republican vote. You control the healthcare of the population, you control their lives! You can force them to go on diets or withdraw medical care. (Death panels).

          It’s the very same thing with gun control. This is Obama’s first step in his ultimate goal of confiscation of our guns. Don’t doubt it. Obama is an evil and conniving tyrant pawning himself off as a buffoon and coward. Don’t take him lightly as he means business in taking over this country.

          Buckle up as we are in for the ride of our lives this year. I pray we all survive.

            It wasn’t the mine owners it was the epa that caused that.the people down stream and on the reservation down stream were warned a month in advance that if the epa got involved this very thing would happen step by step how they would destroy the water she’d was layer out and guess what the epa blew it big time but now they have a excuse to build a 2 billion dollar water treatment plant that they have been trying to build there anyway wow what a coincidence.

        • rome44

          The answer is simple, the topic is gun violence and all of you come short, you can’t have an honest discussion so you try to muddle the issue by introducing other subjects in this way we meander all over the place and it takes the focus away from the discussion of gun violence. It’s to no avail I’m on to you I won’t allow you to steer me away from the topic. If you can’t do that you’re wasting your time as I believe I’ve made my point and have noting further to add.

It is clear that Barak Hussein Shabazz plans to rule by decree, steal the election and install his bloodstained bribe-taking sidekick, who considers her political opponents “enemies”, has promised even more drastic decrees, wants to establish “camps for adults” who are not with the program and intends to “change our culture and our religion”. This is why Americans are buying guns frantically – because the party of Marx, Mohammed and Mapplethorpe is moving us steadily closer to civil war.

    HOW DOES THAT SELF-DEPRECATING UNMUGGED CLUELESS, FORKED-TONGUE LEFT LOON WHITE JERK SLEEP AT NIGHT ?

    Obama wants and is PUSHING GUN CONTROL so that when He wants to over throw the United States because of all the Muslims and Terrorists he let into this country (WE) would not have a chance to defend ourselves against them. As Obama like Hitler who hated Jews and inferior people as he wanted a Superior Race like his SS. Obama has his Drug Dealers, Murders, and the Muslim Brother hood which is a Terrorist Groups.US Immigration Fears Terror Threat From 6,000 Missing on Student Visas
    The Obama administration is unable to locate 6,000 foreign nationals who have entered the United States on student visas, raising concerns about the government’s ability to track potential terror suspects who may already be in the country. He released 5 Known Terrorists, Where are they? He let 100,000 plus Illegals into the US where are they? Some were known Gang members, Rapists, murders, Drug Dealers, and now the same from Syria. He is now releasing convicted Drug Dealers out of Florida prisons. WHY? Hey America needs to Shoot First then ask Questions later! America Defeated England we can do the same to Obama and his goons in office and bring this Country Back to the TRUE American People not this Muslim president who had to have his records SEALED! WHY? What is he Hiding? May-be we would find out he is a Muslim and NEVER EVER was born here in the US but in Kenya AFRICA! here is another Lie he told the College in England. And his Muslim Brother hood that he gave millions of Dollars to is a Terrorist Group according to England Thank God Mr. Trump when President will hopefully put an end to these Muslims here telling us how to live and demanding special treatment and special foods. I agree feed them all the PIG they want. Obama is a TRATIOR and should be tried for TREASON and even be SHOT since we are at WAR with his Muslim Brother Hood as the Rosenberg’s were shot in 1953 for TREASON

  • Timothy Thompson

    You’ve got to be kidding, fear of government who lets a Muslim into the Executive position of President is a good reason. Crime and the fact that criminals are everywhere and whens the last time you needed a cop and can’t find one. Libtards thank god won’t own guns or we conservatives would be fearing more of us being killied by crazy looney liberals who bought guns. Most of the mass shootings were by Democrat Looney Liberals that’s a fact.

  • Timothy Toroian

    I think Josh Earnest eats Tums and Zantac because if he really believes the horse hockey and, meadow muffins and bull buns his boss comes up with he is not an adult. I cannot comprehend how adults can swallow pig piles that Obama, Hilary and Bernie the commie espouse.

  • Dick L

    In his speech, Obama actually said “how did we get to this point (where it is a particant issue)? Will somebody please tell him it’s because we don’t trust him!

  • Chris Brewer

    HE is a half wit communist that does not belong in government just like his boss

  • AL ELLIS

    Why can’t these people understand that we also need protection from terrorists, criminals etc.. They are protected but they don’t feel we have that right. We don’t feel protected by this Administration as is their job. They allow anyone and everyone to come into OUR country, even those that profess to kill us. Get a clue Josh Earnest.

  • AL ELLIS

    I wonder if Obama secretly owns a gun. Interesting thought.

    • VT Patriot

      Di you ever see the picture (photoshopped) of our dear leader firing a shotgun? The recoil would hve kicked him on his butt.

    • Rx7pj

      Yes he does, what the hell does that have to do with this EO?

      • AL ELLIS

        It doesn’t, didn’t you read where I said, “I wonder”?

        • Rx7pj

          Why did you make that comment then?

          • AL ELLIS

            Doesn’t “I wonder” mean I was thinking about it and wondering if he owns a gun because I haven’t heard if he does or not, therefore, if he does, he’s hypocritical IMO. I would think that would be self explanatory.

          • Rx7pj

            Since he owns a gun and has been shown shooting it why do you think that make him hypocritical??? Because he wants better background checks??
            He has NOT and NEVER has said anything about taking your guns. He HAS repeatedly talked about the massive amount of gun violence we have here and the right’s willingness to do ANYTHING about it. Absolutely NOTHING hypocritical about that.

          • AL ELLIS

            You obviously just want to argue with someone, fine, go argue with someone else, I’m not interested. Oh and BTW GROW UP!!!!

  • dltaylor51

    I’m going to continue to buy guns like a mad dog right up untill Barry is out of office and if Hilda beast gets in then the gun buying will continue,why? Because i know that the libs dont like it and it makes me feel good knowing I’m doing something that the libs dont like.

  • Mikial

    What these mongoloids don’t get is that the more they dis us for buying guns, the more guns we buy. Fools!

  • Sloan

    Stupid insane metal Dumarat liberal fools. This whole insane evil corrupt Government has to be thrown out .All the security weapons used to ”protect all these scum from Barak on down should be taken from them ,Nguns at all around these fools and Obama,s kids ..

  • Richard Moorer

    It’s not about safety , It’s ALL ABOUT CONTROL!!! they want us disarmed so that they can, will abuse and kill us if we get out of line… it is our duty to fight them all the way. Tryanny should be shown No Mercy!! what good would life be or to live as a prisoner… armed we are citizens, unarmed we are subjects…

  • Scout

    Having a gun and taking out the shooter would have saved lives. If you don’t agree with this, next time you and Barry show up and please make a difference with or without guns. Just make a difference, and that means saving lives not taking away the only means of doing it and if the two of you are going to use brute force, please remember we are not all as strong as you. Who am I kidding, of course we are but we may not be as strong as the “not-muslim” perpetrators and would have more success with a firearm.

    • Mikial

      Obama and his Liberal acolytes have never done a single thing to better the lives of a single American. Period.

  • Pat

    Acturally Josh and his boss know why but are not hearing the American People. They are doing only what they want and hell with the rest of us…..

    • Franie

      Obama and the democrats are all about power and CONTROL!

  • jwright673

    If someone buys a gun, it is automatically on the street? My guns are safely in my house except for the one that I conceal carry. And then we had imamobama, with tear running down his cheeks, talking about his latest plan to disarm America. He must have had an onion sandwich for lunch. Most men don’t cry when they are mugging for the camera.

    • independent thinker

      Which sleeve do you rekon he had the onion he used to make those tears up.

      • jwright673

        He probably had it sewed into the lapel of his coat. It would be nice if he showed some REAL support for our military and veterans.

        • independent thinker

          🙂

  • thumper79

    americans arm themselves for protection. when obama fails to protect americans he wants to disarm americans!

  • Broadus G Rollins

    BHO just acts he don`t understand why. I think he knows why.

  • Jerrold Hamilton

    Ovomit cries about the victims of Sandy Hook as need for more background checks,but what is forgotten is the fact that the guns used in the murder of the teachers and the students were not owned by the shooter but owned by his mother whom he had murdered beforehand .No amount of gun checks on her would have revealed anything out of the ordinary.The San Bernardina shooters again did not purchase the firearms a neighbor did.In almost all of the mass shootings since Ovomit has been in office the weapons used were purchased by someone other than the shooter.You who would say you speak what about the victims I would ask have you been the victim of a shooting or vicious beating,I was gut shot by a punk who used a stolen handgun he was caught when he tried to use my bankcard and 3 years later was pistol whipped by a man who was never caught I had to have my jaw wired shut where he broke it and lost six teeth.If I had had my gun with me they would have been stiffs cooling on the pavement.No amount of background checks are going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals who for the most part do not purchase the guns legally.

  • Coffee49

    Joshy boy should tell his hero to get his a$$ over to chicago and educate his kids on the fact that stealing is wrong and they should ho the legal route when purchasing a firearm to kill each other, then johnny law could trace the firearm back to the owner and have the gun charge dropped in court. Everyone wins except the white anglo saxon

  • Ken Bowman

    People sense Obama is the MORTAL ENEMY of Christians and loyal American citizens. We are not all as STUPID as VILE LIBERAL SCUM!

  • USAnowMSAsadly

    You people are giving fecal matter a bad rep for comparing Josh Ernest to fecal matter! LOL

  • AL ELLIS

    Yes I’ve seen the picture, however, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s his. But then again it could be. Just don’t know. My worry in all this is it could be his first step on taking guns from us. That bothers me, honest, law abiding citizens should have NO problems owning guns, but I have a very bad feeling about this.

  • marlio

    I imagine there are many americans who have not yet purchased guns. I am looking into buying one and believe I need it to protect myself against the ilegal syrians obama is bringing in as well as illegal people coming in through the southern border. Muslims took over Lebanon and now it is a waste land because I dont think these people know how to take care of anoything and they will probably destroy Europe. I am being proactive because govt will not be there when we need them.!!!

  • Realist

    Enforce the gun laws already on the books. Don’t. release thousands of convicted felons back into the population. Stop the flow of all the criminal illegals pouring into our ountry. These are ways to curb violence. Have gun bans worked in Chicago? California? No, and they won’t work now. Our founding fathers would have the idiot in charge strung up for his constitutional violations. It’s not for Obama to decide. Here’s the anwer. If you can’t qualify to buy a gun you can’t vote. Problem solved. Yet our anti gun so-called president runs fast and furious and runs guns to rebels in Libya, hence bengahzi. He is surrounded by men with guns. His children are surrounded by men with guns. He’s a joke and a disgrace.

  • Tinman Jones

    Ol’ Josh is the liberal trumpeter on strings of a lousy president and a lousy media. What a crummy thing he does every day when he decides to speak. Romans 12:12!

  • Charles Wilson

    Why are these comments so overwhelmingly vile?n my guess will draw nastiness. —

  • Donovan Billiot

    rome44, still doe’s not seem to back his loss of life matters, he seems to dance around the issue, I guess to rome44, abortions are ok, those lives don’t matter, he wants to try and talk down everyone on here that wants their guns and gun rights left alone, and he keeps mentioning how lives matter, but refuses to acknowledge that aborted live beings matter as well, but his liberal group of friends, and obumer and administration refuse to do anything about that, maybe rome44 wants to be obumers bitch.

  • Patriot47

    And the false narrative and BS statisticians come out of the woodwork.
    Just shut up and read the FBI report and then you may know more about what kills Americans and it isn’t guns.

  • ADRoberts

    Josh lacks a rational mind. WHY? Because at such time as he starts to think and speak rationally, he will be fired and out of a job. Face it. He is the puppet. He can be nothing else. Sort of feel sorry for him as he will be judged by God and the nation for his complicity.

  • DonRS

    “Obama Mouthpiece Clueless About Why Americans Buy Guns” – Just drop “About Why Americans Buy Guns” and the headline is more complete – “Obama Mouthpiece Clueless!”

  • Ibcamn

    josh…im totally astonished at how many men still get prostate exams(crap shoved up their asses)as in a colonospocy,it can kill you,but yet they listen to their doctors and then maybe die!yep,more men die from that,then your gun stats each year!?!?yep,and josh,why do people do elective surgery?more people die each year from incompetent doctors than your gun stats!!yep almost half a million people die from doctors who have no clue to what they are doing!?!yet they do it?!so you have to wonder …why isn’t obama(your butt buddy)doing something about that?he is pushing for gun control because of deaths,so…why not the doctors who kill way more people with a scalpel???..liberals are idiots and live in a world ruled by idiocy!!!

    OK, one more time—
    “Political power flows from the barrel of a gun.”—Mao Tse Tung
    “You don’t need a gun.”—Barack Obama
    By the way, here’s an idea for a wonderful bumper sticker–“If you like your gun, you can keep your gun.”

    Yep he’s a mouthpiece all right, Just as ignorant as obummer
