Obama Versus The NRA

President Obama on Wednesday initiated a high-stakes gun-control fight with Congress and the National Rifle Association (NRA), demanding that lawmakers approve significant new restrictions on firearms in response to a string of deadly shootings.

Obama said Congress should pass bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines and agree to universal background checks intended to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

He also called for lawmakers to take up new federal laws toughening penalties for gun trafficking and to provide additional funding for safety and research programs.

Need some common sense regarding
2nd Amendment...just like you can't yell "fire" in a movie theater.

Don't think our founders intended assault weapons and huge
clips as an absolute right.

The yelling fire in a movie theater analogy is incredibly terrible. No one is taking preemptive measures to stop a person from yelling fire. If a person yells fire and it causes harm to others as a result, then that person needs to be dealt with. We don't need to cut out law abiding citizens tongues to insure they don't misuse them.

Of course they did. Their own weapons in their civil war were upgraded many times and many ways.

They would know that in the future weapons would continue to advance and improve. They would have to, just as their own weapons did.

The 2nd amendment did not just apply to the musket, handgun and cannon. It encompassed each and every weapon of their period and future periods.

The constitution is very forward thinking. They knew times would change, people would change and technology would change as well.

They knew in their years ahead, they would need to continue to advance and everything else had to advance with them.

The 2nd amendment isn't about only the musket. Nor is it only about hunting or shooting for sport. The 2nd amendment is about any and all weapons they would become available.

They just had a war with a tyrannical government. They could not limit themselves with whatever weapons they had at the time.

They knew improvements would come that made what they had obsolete. They also knew they had to be equipped with the same/similar weapons of their enemies.

Therefore they wanted EVERYONE to be able to have the same weapons of their enemies. And they realized that could be their own new government in the future.

WE would need the same armament as our government if the need ever arose to overthrow it.

The left is our enemy. They do not want us to be able to defend against them as they are trying to destroy our form of government and our freedoms.

We are being attacked from within. We are fighting a domestic enemy.And they are using every tool they can at their disposal to accomplish their goals.

Public schools, colleges, our culture and our morals are under attack as well.

They want homosexuality to be normal and accepted. They want marriage destroyed. Easy divorce. Our belief in God. Anything and everything they can use to destroy the nuclear family unit.

Racism is used to divide and destroy us. Welfare is used against us. They want as many people on welfare as they can get.

That would mean more government. They want us to be dependent of government to take care of them from cradle to grave. They want us dumbed down from our public schools and colleges.

They want us fighting amongst ourselves. I could go on and on.

I watched an hour and half video about the destruction of this country from within. It opened my eyes to a lot of different things.

The demoncratic party and Obama himself are named as actors in this agenda. They get their teachings from communists.

They use socialism to make the changes to our government, education, culture to pave the way for communism.

I would encourage everyone to watch it. This is no tinfoil wearing conspiracy theorists. This is all about facts, plans and agendas from as early as the 1930's.

It's called AGENDA: Grinding America Down and it can be found here:

I encourage educating yourselves and get like minded with each other. The fat lady hasn't sung yet, but she is clearing her throat.

Time really is getting short.

Washington wants those weapons banned because they know eventually we will come for them to take our freedom back.

10:57 I totally agree and would add to the "get like minded with each other" to actually get together to plan and organize. The Tea Party Patriots is a good organization to start with, of course that one, along with any other organizations that actually care about what the government is doing to the people, will have some government trolls as memebers but they are usually identifiable when the serious times come.

2:10 meant to agree with 12:55 though 10:57 has a good point

MSM spread so many stories that I dont think telling any part of the truth is at all possible. The government would shut them down
