Thread: Obama: 'I Believe in the Second Amendment'

  1. If Obama gets one more liberal judge in the SCOTUS, then it's over! You know in the Heller case they voted 5-4 that WE THE PEOPLE had a right to self defense! Just think about that for a moment... 5 to 4... one more vote in the other direction and they could basically wipe out the 2nd Amend!

    Now if we could get NoBama's current buzzillion facebook and twitter followers (Accounts are run by none other than Organizing for America no less !) to WTFU and get the SILENT CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY TO REGISTER TO VOTE AND ACTUALLY VOTE we might actually send NoBama & Company packing in 2012 !

    Otherwise we are in for a rude awaking AGAIN in November 2012.

    Be Proactive NOW, before its too late.

    He's a sheep in wolves clothing. He'll pick the time and place (as Diane Feinstein once said) for the battle. It will come in his second term as he'll never get re-elected on this platform.

    You forgot to mention the usual Dem/Prog/Lib "CYA" addendum to the "I support the 2nd Ammendment" statement. To wit: "With REASONABLE restrictions!" Needless to say, their idea of "reasonable restrictions" are found to be most ornerous indeed for most law abiding citizens. (The Bad Guys merely chuckle and continue to march.)

    Does anyone but me consider that since the "Politicos" seem completely unable to stem lawlessness through Laws and enforcement procedures, it MUST come to follow that the law abiding must be MADE into criminals through ornerous restrictions on their rights...... makes it seem like they (the Politicos) are doing SOMETHING positive! (To the constituents from the sheep herd, at any rate.)

    Fanatics of any sort are dangerous! -GG-
    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?
