Obama’s gun control manipulation


Headline from

“The Obama administration on Monday unveiled a series of new executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence and making some political headway on one of the most frustrating policy areas of President Obama’s tenure.”

Between the Lines

Obama is a master at giving a speech. Certainly the speech he delivered Tuesday morning explaining his gun-control measures was indeed a masterful piece. He hit all the right notes, playing at emotions instead of common sense. He does this so well.

Just like he said during his campaign, he was going to lower sea levels and heal the earth of the ravages caused by the Bush administration, now Obama is going to eliminate gun violence. With the stroke of his pen, he is bypassing Congress in the process.

“We can’t accept this carnage in our communities,” Obama tweeted earlier. He is ignoring the fact that none of the restrictions he proposes would have prevented any of the “mass shootings” that he mentions: not Aurora, or Charleston, or Columbine, or Newtown.

Nor would his gun control measures prevent any terrorist attacks such as the one recently in San Bernardino, Ca.

Rather, the additional restrictions on the Second Amendment are all about control and feeling. The restrictions are aimed at controlling law-abiding citizens, and do nothing to prevent crime. The restrictions are aimed at emotions and feelings rather than practical solutions.

In the audience was U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, chief among those playing at America’s emotions. She survived an assassination attempt in 2011. Therefore, Giffords is the perfect one to play on emotions when she asks for gun control: Let’s all feel better.

Ignore criminals and terrorists in our backyard, who, by their very nature do not obey laws. More laws are intended for the law-abiding.

I almost fell off my chair when Obama said that he would make it more difficult for the “most violent criminals to try to buy guns!!!” Really? Since when do the most violent criminals care about laws? That is hilarious on its face.

Obama said they are going to “hire more folks” to bring an outdated background check into the 21st century. Hiring more government employees, growing the government, and adding more control over American citizens is what this is all about. It’s citizen control, not gun control.

Gov. Abbott’s Press Ofc.

“The Bill of Rights was added as a specific safeguard to prevent the federal government from denying Americans those guaranteed rights. Today, the President trampled the purpose and substance of the Bill of Rights by unilaterally imposing Second Amendment restrictions.

“After failing to pass gun control measures through Congress, the President is yet again resorting to unilateral executive action in place of the democratic process. Despite the President’s latest attempt to undermine our liberty, Texas will take every action to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”

That about sums it up for me.

Proud to be a Texan.
