Gun Ban Coming: President Calls for Limiting Freedoms

There is little doubt that the Anti-Gun politicians will use last week’s tragedy to come after law-abiding gun owners. In fact, a number of politicians have already started to lay the framework for a coming ban on so-called assault weapons.

Over the weekend Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) vowed to introduce legislation to ban assault weapons.

 “I’m going to introduce in the Senate and the same bill will be introduced in the House, a bill to ban assault weapons. It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession. Not retroactively but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets. So there will be a bill. We’ve been working on it now for a year,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet The Press”.

President Uses Tragedy to Justify Taking Away Our Rights

Last night at a memorial to the victims of last week’s tragedy, President Barrack Obama used the event to signal the fact that he was ready to start taking away our freedoms. If you think that’s hyperbole, just look at what the President had to say:

“Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”

To use this tragedy in a way that suggests taking away any of our freedoms is almost unbelievable. In fact, it sounds a little bit like something a dictator might say.

Our constitution was written for a reason. It was laid out in a way that would prevent our leaders from taking radical actions because of hysteria and popular opinion. Maybe our President needs to hear the words of our founding fathers, and listen to what Ben Franklin had to say about this subject:

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Ben Franklin

What happened in Connecticut is almost beyond comprehension; it’s something that affects every single person who hears the story. How any human being could do something like this to children, is beyond anything that I have the capacity to write about.

What I do know is taking away our guns, our freedoms, or any of our rights will do nothing to prevent future tragedies like this from occurring. As I pointed out earlier this week, we don’t have a gun problem; WE HAVE A CULTURE PROBLEM.

Because they are the only ones who will in the end surrender the guns. So now you will have victims and criminals. Look at country’s like Australia where guns have been banned crime only goes up. You need to step back and whether you like guns or not do your own homework instead of being a drone to the news.

There have always been guns in this country, what there isn’t now is personal responsibility for ones actions. Everyone demands their rights but actually have no idea what those rights really are. You don’t have a right to a car, a cell phone, or even a job. You do have the right to try to get those items or thing, but not the actual item or thing. Being able to achieve something is a right, not being given it. So move on ma’am and leave us alone. I won’t even go into what has actually made this country crap, the list is too long.

        GMS great point..this shooting sickens me to my soul and for Dawn to blame the law abiding “gun freaks” is a typical response used by these finger pointing morons.

        Dawn, First you need to learn how to spell “Zealots”. Secondly, Do you know how many shots were fired by the terrorists in the 911 attacks? The answer is “Zero”. Should the USA also ban all airplanes or box cutters too? Your a typical 5 minute liberal news bite Idiot. You should spend less time attending legalizing marijuana protests and more time learning how to spell and searching for the truth. One real problem here is the break down of the family unit in our country and the overall general acceptance of all types of social and deviant behavior. Both of these problems apply here. In the 60’s and 70’s this guy would have not been allowed to walk the streets and likely would have been institutionalized.
        Lastly, the sad truth is Dawn, you’re not alone in your thoughts. There are lots of “sheeple” with the same view as yours who govern and live in the socialist republic of New York.

    I’m afraid he’s going to get a lot more traction with this since it was little children. If only those law abiding teachers had been allowed to fight back, it’s possible that much of this tragedy might have been prevented and people might have seen the benefit of a well armed population. Although, a lack of a mass murder does not get on the news. Crimes carried out with firearms get attention. Crimes prevented with firearms are ignored.

    A quote from Thomas Jefferson: “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.

    Nice, Obama. I saw what you did there. “Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”

    Yeah, you just tried to make the mass murder of children the result of our Second Amendment. You tried to equate these murders with gun rights. Very slick, dude. You just slipped it out there like it was ‘Oh, and I’ll have an iced tea with that please’.

    However, you ignored several undeniable facts. It’s already illegal to have a gun on school property – but that didn’t stop the killer. It’s already illegal to murder your mother – but that didn’t stop the killer. It’s already illegal to steal someone else’s guns (or anything) – but THAT didn’t stop the killer. It’s already illegal to use a gun in the commission of a crime – but THAT didn’t stop the killer.

    You, sir, ignored the fact that two UNARMED women confronted the killer and died for their efforts – but THAT didn’t stop the killer.

    If you truly want to stop school shootings, arm and train the teachers, and REQUIRE that they carry their weapons in class.

    I suggest, Mr. President, that people intent on killing defenseless victims will always find a weapon of some kind, will always go where the law disarms their intended victims, and will NEVER stop along the way to the designated ‘gun free zones’ to shoot at random folks on the street, or shoot up a bar, or a police station – in fact, they will never stop to shoot at anyone who might be capable of shooting back.

    And so far none have. That would adversely affect their mission, because their sole intent is to kill UNARMED AND DEFENSELESS people.

    So you sir, by trying to use this horrible tragedy for you own political profit, and to the detriment of liberty and America, are complicit in the next mass shooting and every single one that follows. It is you and people like you who are responsible for the deaths of those children and educators.

This is psychotic, by definition (doing the same thing, over and over, and expecting different results). The ban didn’t work before, it won’t work NOW. What a world of difference it would have made if several of the adults that man killed in that school had been armed. Please forgive me for my seemingly random subjects above, I actually am crying, I am terrified.

    I protect my family, I protect others, I protect all whom I love so dear, with the 2nd amendment. There’s a reason its 2nd, and not 14th in line. so those 27 little words will be read, and understood. Why are they not either understood? or followed? why do we have to fight for our rights to keep the 2nd amendment? when it clearly defines absolutely no infringement shall be made against it? its difficult to transfer class III (3) full auto’s, and that was made done in 1934 and made 10x more difficult in 1987, this has been a long time in the coming, and I THINK THIS FIGHT HERE, IS OUR 2ND AMERICAN REVOLUTION, WE MUST FIGHT THIS OR DIE TRYING. NOT ONE STEP BACK!!!!!!!!. Forgive me for typing in caps, or yelling, but this calls for it. I am no longer crying I am ANGRY and I am about to begin the greatest moment of my life by fighting for my freedoms to keep my firearms of ALL kinds and to defend the rights of my countrymen! and to defend the ones I love.

        First, the mom is dead and can’t explain or defend herself.

        Second, she was allegedly a ‘prepper’, she kept guns like the rest of us patriots, and she trained with her guns. For all we know – had she known her son would so this – she may have shot him herself.

        But third, I don’t think we can fault her for NOT shooting her son either – who wants to think their own child is so warped that he or she needs to be removed from Earth by the parent’s own hand? He apparently very suddenly ‘went off’. Way off.

        Really, don’t blame the mom. There’s no evidence for doing that, and there is some evidence to counter it.

    In many countries (i.e. Russia, China, etc.) it would be considered traitorous to speak against the “state”. OR even to question an individuals rights (whether they be considered God given or otherwise). Articles such as this one, would be forbidden in some countries. In the United States, the First Amendment grants us the ability to speak openly, without fear of attack or retribution. In this country, our very FREEDOM is under attack. On so many levels that most (including myself) are overwhelmed by it all.

    I implore you to remember… There would not be a FIRST Amendment without THE SECOND Amendment.

    The men who founded this country understood that FREEDOM is a necessity to us all. Those brave men and women fought, bled and many died to ensure that The Constitution & The Bill of Rights were set in place to protect the citizens from an overbearing and tyrannical government.

    Guns ARE NOT the problem. The gun is a tool. The problem is the ability of “whack jobs” to commit a crime. So lets outlaw hammers and knives and ball bats! Seriously, the System in place is what has failed. If a man is “hell bent” on committing a crime, he will find a way to do it… THINK ABOUT IT! If JUST ONE of those teachers at Sandy Hook had been armed, the crime may have been stopped before it even started. The perpetrator may not have even had a chance to cross the parking lot to do any harm at all!

    At any rate, it is done. Extremely sad for everyone. My heart goes out to those affected by it.

HEIL HITLER!!!!!” he was over run, and killed, as a man stood listening to this over the radio, it was almost forgotten, but I had a paper made stating the entire quote, and I hung it above my bed, it remains there, I only hope one day, if it comes, I will die with just as much conviction as this man, who never surrendered, but fought for what he believed in. (my hero is Sun Tzu/Miyamoto Musashi if anyone is wondering) and P.S. if I may quote a great warrior “one man, with one sword, may kill two people, I carry two” same Principe applies today, at least thats what I’d do if I was surrounded, I would pull out two UZI’s, lol
