    White House response - Can you believe it?

    This came in today. I used to have the utmost respect for the office of President, but if this what the country wanted, I guess it isn't such a big deal, after all. I never expected such bull twaddle to come from a president, but then I remembered who the bull is. Sorry about the length, but wanted you to get the full effect. One of his mistakes was calling me "friend."







    Dear Friend:




    Thank you for taking the time to write. I have heard from many Americans regarding firearms policy and gun violence in our Nation, and I appreciate your perspective. From Aurora to Newtown to the streets of Chicago, we have seen the devastating effects gun violence has on our American family. I join countless others in grieving for all those whose lives have been taken too soon by gun violence.



    Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. In this country, we have a strong tradition of gun ownership that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hunting and sport shooting are part of our national heritage. Yet, even as we acknowledge that almost all gun owners in America are responsible, when we look at the devastation caused by gun violence—whether in high-profile tragedies or the daily heartbreak that plagues our cities—we must ask ourselves whether we are doing enough.



    While reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm should not be a divisive one. Most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. Most also agree that if we took commonsense steps to curtail gun violence, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown. We will not be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing we can do to reduce gun violence—if even one life can be saved—then we have an obligation to try.



    That is why I asked Vice President Joe Biden to identify concrete steps we can take to keep our children safe, help prevent mass shootings, and reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. He met with over 200 groups representing a broad cross-section of Americans and heard their best ideas. I have put forward a specific set of proposals based off of his efforts, and in the days ahead, I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality.



    My plan gives law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals, and the public health community some of the tools they need to help reduce gun violence. These tools include strengthening the background check system, helping schools hire more resource officers and counselors and develop emergency preparedness plans, and ensuring mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. And I directed the Centers for Disease Control to study the best ways to reduce gun violence—because it is critical that we understand the science behind this public health crisis.



    As important as these steps are, they are not a substitute for action from Congress. To make a real and lasting difference, members of Congress must also act. As part of my comprehensive plan, I have called on them to pass some specific proposals right away. First, it is time to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. Second, Congress should renew the 10-round limit on magazines and reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban. We should get tougher on those who buy guns with the purpose of selling them to criminals, and we should impose serious punishments on anyone who helps them do this.



    These are reasonable, commonsense measures that have the support of the majority of the American people. But change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love. We owe the victims of heartbreaking national tragedies and the countless unheralded tragedies each year nothing less than our best effort—to seek consensus in order to save lives and ensure a brighter future for our children.



    Thank you, again, for writing. I encourage you to visit Now is the time | The White House to learn more about my Administration’s approach.




    Sincerely,



    Barack Obama <- He forgot the Hussein





    My words, again, not from the White House. Maybe somene should educate the pres on the meaning of "sincerely?"

    Sorry people but voters put p.o.t.u.s back in office elections have consequences. Lets face reality here gun control has little to do with the safety of citizens or children. Gun control is a means of controlling society. Reality is the 2nd amendment was put in place as a limitation on government to ensure the freedom liberty and sovereignty of the American person. Look would you really expect any thing less from him?

  5. Did you by chance post this on another gun forum as well?

  6. Whenever you hear a Demoncrat use the phrase "common sense measures", you know you're about to hear some of the craziest **** you've ever heard in your life. It's just like when someone says "I'm not a racist", then follows it up with a Hitler-esque tirade.

    The Dictator is upset that he is Constrained by the Founding Fathers & Constitution

    Obama: “I Am Constrained by the System Our Founders Put in Place”

    President lambasts Americans who cite Second Amendment as a defense against government tyranny

    Paul Joseph Watson

    April 5, 2013

    During a speech in Denver, Colorado, President Obama remarked that his gun control agenda was “constrained by the system our founders put in place,” as he lambasted Second Amendment advocates who argue that gun ownership is a means of protection against government tyranny.


    “Opponents of some of these common-sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what’s being proposed and nothing to do with the facts, but feeds into this suspicion about government,” said Obama.

    “You hear some of these quotes: “I need a gun to protect myself from the government.” “We can’t do background checks because the government is going to come take my guns away.”

    “Well, the government is us. These officials are elected by you. They are elected by you. I am elected by you. I am constrained, as they are constrained, by a system that our Founders put in place. It’s a government of and by and for the people.”

    At first glance, Obama’s admission that his actions are constrained by the authors of the Constitution is a seemingly glib nod to safeguards ensured by the bill of rights and the Second Amendment. However, when placed in a more sinister context, the quote could also be interpreted as a complaint that a President who in January introduced 23 executive orders to address “gun violence reduction” should be given an even greater free reign to take a bite out of gun rights.

    Recall that back in July 2011 during a speech on immigration, Obama lamented that, “doing things on my own” (becoming a dictator) was “very tempting”.

    Obama also remarked, “I am not a dictator” during the sequester debate in early March.

    As Infowars has documented, Obama has flagrantly violated the Constitution in all manner of different ways, from undermining the power of Congress (an act of high treason according to Congressman Walter Jones) by insisting his authority came from the United Nations Security Council prior to the attack on Libya and that Congressional approval was not necessary, to accepting rotating status as chairman of the United Nations Security Council, which is a direct violation of article 1, section 9, clause 8 of the Constitution.

    During his speech yesterday, Obama also stated, “There doesn’t have to be a conflict between protecting our citizens and protecting our Second Amendment rights.”

    Obama’s insistence that his gun control agenda does not infringe on the Second Amendment is not a view shared by over a dozen Colorado Sheriffs who held a press conference to coincide with the President’s visit to the state earlier this week.

    One of those Sheriffs, Elbert County’s Shayne Heap, subsequently released a YouTube video in which he slammed Obama for using “fear” to exploit recent tragedies in pursuit of curtailing the right to bear arms.

    Heap accused Obama of working to, “legislatively carpet bomb law-abiding citizens with excessive restrictions,” by introducing gun control regulations that punish lawful citizens while failing to address the wider issue of violence in American society.

    Newly passed laws in Colorado prohibit the sale of magazines which hold more than 15 bullets, in addition to mandating background checks for all private gun sales.

  8. Same ol' song and dance. I believe this generic pot-o-stew was cooked-up with the same can of sterno my rubber stamped copy received weeks ago.

    Reminds me of an Aerosmith song with the lyrics, "same ol' song and, same ol' song and dance, my friend". Or something like that...

    Obama rated the 5th best President ever !
    Interesting!
    Obama rated 5th best US President ever

    Of the total of 44 US Presidents: Obama rated 5th best president ever. I was
    just reading a Democratic publicity release that said, "...after a little
    more than 4 years, Obama has been rated the 5th best president ever."


    The details according to White House Publicists..:
    * Reagan, Lincoln, and 8 others tied for first,
    * 15 presidents tied for second,
    * 17 other presidents tied for third,
    * Jimmy Carter came in 4th, and
    * Obama came in fifth

    "There doesn't have to be a conflict between protecting our citizens and protecting our Second Amendment rights, but this is EXACTLY what I'm going to do! Cause conflict at every level of government, illegaly invoke executive privilege, and trample the Constitution and the Bill of Rights at every opportunity, using children and law enforcement officers as props to spearhead an anti American Presidency, and pursue socialist dictatorial edicts, to crush true Patriots of this country".

    It's amazing, all the "left out" parts of these speeches...
