Finally got a reply from the POS in office.


Just reading it makes me want to smash my laptop into a million pieces... They wrote this with the assumption that anyone reading it is stupid and wont see through their lies.... Makes me furious.

Dear Michael:

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

At least you got a reply... Of course you have to understand that he thinks "bear Arms" and "Bare arms" mean the same thing. Good to know Obama is FOR short sleeves. Guns, no the people can't be trusted with those...

At least you got an answer. I have a quick question, though, based on a comment from his letter: "He [the vice-president] 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."

Now the question: I have never met anyone who has been involved in anything of this nature. Have any of you ever been so involved? You would think that someone you know had been asked about this, but I can't find anyone I know who has been involved in anything governmental, other than government employees. Who are these spectral people involved in governmental surveys, and why don't I know at least one of them? Anyone?

They are the people he/they made up so they could spread their lies to the sheeple. Not unlike the "40%", "Weapons of war", "Assault weapons", "Automatic weapons", and on and on and on.... They sling their outright lies but allow 0 rebuttal to hit the airwaves so people know the truth.

Got the same response. After some Pepto-Bismol I was able to look at it again long enough to delete it - POSPOTUS!
 
Ya Get what you vote for. I am just glad to hear so many Americans that did vote for him want their vote back. To Late, you have to do the research before you vote not just watch commercials and liberal News then vote.
Oh My Goodness.

Shortly after the election in 2008 I sent a letter to the newly elected Barak Obama and told him his services were not needed and for him to clean out his desk and seek employment elsewhere.

I did not get a response to my letter.

What about those of us that did not vote for him either time? You'd have thought that the people that voted for him first time would have known better than to vote for him a second time.

And how is making background checks apply to every FTF sale going to help? There's already a law against selling guns to prohibited persons. It's not working. How will more law change things? What part of "criminals don't obey the law" don't they understand in Disneyland on the Potomac? Is the DEA distributing all the confiscated drugs in the Capitol and at 1600 Penn. Ave?

Yes, I thought the same! But what REALLY gets me is the ones STILL driving around with obummer stickers on their car from 2008 and 2012!!

Each time I see one I say, "Thanks a lot, a$$ho**!!"

I feel they are proud of the fact that they are stupid!!!

Well that's silly (getting angry and smashing your laptop), as you #1 the POS never saw you thoughts, #2 he could care less how you feel, #3 your response is a form letter sent after a quick scan of your letters topic by some low level clerk, that would eat Obama's feces if it was offered.
