Obama's Rush to Judgment: Save Our Guns

Original post made by Jennifer Wittingham on Jan 16, 2013

There are so many problems in our society far worse than gun ownership, which is the foundation of our Constitutional freedoms. To wit: Just you TRY and take someone's freedom away and they'll shoot you. I think James Madison said that.

Of what significance is gun ownership compared to voter fraud? You see, the half dozen or so cases of voter fraud over the past ten years is far more pressing than a not-so-occasional wacko exercising his 2nd Amendment rights by slaughtering human beings with a military assault weapon.

California gun laws are already very strict. Like, you have to take a test and score 18 out of 25. And if you fail it, you are provided the answers and then you must retake the very same test, until you you pass it or until the gunshop owner gets tired of waiting on your repeated efforts and goes off to attend to some other patriotic customer.

No, the real problem isn't guns. It's that young impoverished and desperate black males have procured guns from responsible owners and then gone ballistic in our schools. How many of the shootings at schools, after all, have been committed by inner city black youths who have stolen military assault weapons from patriotic suburbanites? That's the real crime, which needs to be addressed but not with MY tax money.

I rest my case. Let's slow things down until we're able to logically sort through all the relevant facts.

Oh, you bleeding heart libs can go on and on about shooting children, but it takes a real conservative, like me or Tim Hunt, to make Newtown about black-on-black gun violence in Oakland. Why? Because people like me and Tim Hunt care a lot about what happens to blacks in Oakland. Seriously. Think about that.

Besides, why are we rushing to protect children from gun violence? Consider this: they're not eligible to vote, which makes them the equivalent of felons and illegal immigrants. Statistics show that these children will grow up in a nation that progresses into a diverse future full of blacks and hispanics instead of one that regresses into the past, in which whites dominated the culture. Statistics also show that at the present rate, 94% of them will vote Democrat. And probably be in the pocket of those filthy, thug-ridden unions!

Also, Brown is fiscally irresponsible! Pleasanton schools are far inferior to Livermore's! Animals will be bred and...slaughtered! Mein Fuhrer! I can walk!

Jenny Half-Wit and duh-dumb you are such a a**. Barry Hussien Obama is a tyrant and you're going to wake up sometime in the near future with his jackbooted union thugs in your bedroom. America had its chance to elect a highly competent businessman, but led by the liberal loon media the sheeple voted in a incompitant dictator who must be impeeched if the essential liberty to possess and bear military assault weapons is to be preserved. There are approximately 40 million ak-47-like weapons in the United States. Good luck Obambasticator from Kenya pulling them out of the hands of their owners.

Nobody is forcing anybody to give up their guns. If you don't want to, then keep them.

Just be advised that you're not the only ones with guns and we know how to use ours to.

Look ... there's no way guns are going to get outlawed. But, it sure in the heck is a good way to get everyone riled up. One of the best forms of manipulation is distraction. Hey watch my hand waving over here so I can hide the real thing over there.

My point: There's a higher issue working behind the scenes. I don't know what it is, but another key to solving problems is "follow the money".

Following the money never leads to guns ... so folks we're all being hustled.

liberalism is a disease is a registered user.

Interesting to watch our local troll (nicknamed Sybil) having a conversation with himself in a mcking sarcastic tone. Imagine him running from one computer to another at the local library or coffee shops to avoid that pesky rule about posting multiple times with different user names from the same IP address.
At least we don't have to worry about him creating instances of workplace violence since he is unemployed, otherwise who else would have time for this amateurish, childish behavior?

Please provide us your address (or maybe we could get the PW to post the addresses of everyone who does not have a gun in the house). I'd like to have some of my friends drop by and demonstrate what happens to residents who choose not to defend themselves of their property. Just to make it fair, we'll give you a 5 minute head start. Is tonight too soon?

The problem is MARY the DisSEASED LiberAL ConTRARIAN that the criminals have military assault rifles. When they come from Oakland knocking on my door to sell magazines, I have to be able to show them that my assault rifle is bigger than theirs. Your little single shot cap gun will not help you against anti-aircraft guns mounted in the backs of the white vans that come over from Oakland.

I am sickened that our Dear Leader Obama is using our children to advance his tyranny. Just like his namesake Saddam Hussien, Barry Hussien is using children as shields while advancing his own tyraniccal military takeover of genuinely patriotic citizens.

Go back under your bed Mary!
The second amendment is not for hunting or
for self protection only! It's for freedom against
TYRANNY!!!! You are so ignorant that you should
be quiet until you understand our Nations History
and our God Given Rights to stand against Tyranny.
A hand gun will not protect you against tyranny.
Honey just put a sock in it. You're not getting our guns.

....uhhhh and why am I a racist?
I am an equal opportunity criminal hater.
Anyone who tries to hurt our freedom is a criminal.
I'm not going to turn on the lights to see what color the
person breaking into my house is before I shoot them to hell.
I'm not going to ask the Gustapo to take their mask off first.
It's a matter if principal not RACE you ignorant puppet.
All you know is what the puppet master tells you to say.
Hillary isn't black. Diane Feinstein isn't black. Barbara Boxer
isn't black. Mario Quomo isn't black! You're the racist because
you are the kind that USES race to shut the other side up.
Not gonna work here dear.

Steve, regarding your comment "Barry Hussien Obama is a tyrant" you really have an anger issue. Tyrant? Get a life.

guns, guns, Mary, and the rest of you diseased ones. Ronald Reagan gave us the best policy. If the criminals have a gun, decent Americans need to have a bigger gun. And if the criminals then get bigger guns, decent Americans need to get even bigger guns. And if criminals resort to things like grenade launchers and bazookas, then decent citizens need to man their backyards with anti-aircraft missiles. Eventually, the criminals will get the message and go back to Oakland where those types belong. In the meantime, we get a healthy economy based on guns rather than solar, wind, and the rest of the diseased liberal rubbish they strewed across the landscape.

As for guns, guns, and etc you need to get treated for your liberal disease. Wait til you see some visitor from the government standing at your doorway with a gas mask demanding all your arms and ammunition. First they came for the homosexuals, then the Cathlics, then the Jews, and now today the process is starting all over again with Obama's storm troppers taking away the last line of defense our assault rifles.

Mittens, now that's an original name. Unable to come up with anything intelligent to say, he starts whackin everyone he doesn't like. Gotta feel sorry for the guy. He's probably one of the liberal diseased ones brought over here from Kenya by the Obama propaganda team.

Just this week I was reading a story out of Newtown CT and had the feeling I wanted to cry one more time. All of our hearts were broken that day.
None of the regulations be pushed be Obama, Feinstein, Boxer or Quomo would have stop Newtown.

Please stop saying Newtown and gun control.

Let's take Oakland would better gun control work there YES! But it will not help a city that will not help itself. There killing each other and it's the cop's fault if you listen to the residents and the Mayor.

Yesterday they were up in arms about Stop and Frisk! Have mistakes been made in other cities with stop and frisk yes. But has the law taken a lot of guns of the street yes. Has it made the thugs afraid to carry there gun with the fear of stop and frisk yes. Has it save lives yes.

But no we cannot do this in our city!
Ok then keep killing each other gun control will not help until you have a weapon to take the current guns off the street.

Obama does not even realize that he and his actions are the reason he is getting pushback. 83% polled said they do not trust the us government. Guns are not only to protect us against the bad guys but also against those in our government.
