Obama blames NRA for gun violence

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Once again, President Obama is exploiting the tragic deaths from a mass shooting to push his political agenda to control guns. This time, he escalates the rhetoric by blaming Second Amendment advocates for criminals’ acts.

After spending the day on the golf course Saturday, Mr. Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner about his priorities.

Referring to Monday’s tragic shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, along with the mass murders in Newtown and Aurora in 2012, Tucson in 2011 and shootings in Chicago, he said: “As long as there are those who fight to make it as easy as possible for dangerous people to get their hands on a gun, then we’ve got to work as hard as possible for the sake of our children. We’ve got to be ones who are willing to do more work to make it harder.”

So who is fighting to make it easy for criminals to get guns?

Of course he is referring to the 5 million members of the National Rifle Association. He did the same thing in April after his gun control agenda failed to get 60 votes in the Senate. In the Rose Garden, he blamed the lack of support on the “gun lobby” lying about the legislation, which “intimidated a lot of senators.”

Contrary to the president’s accusations, the NRA long has lobbied for better mental health treatment and strengthening the background check system.

Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s executive vice president and chief executive officer, said Sunday on NBC: “I’ll tell you what the NRA’s for: interdicting violent criminals, get them off the street; interdict people who are having mental problems, get them into treatment; enforce the federal gun laws. … Fix the mental health system, and let’s get our fiscal house in order so that we can stop releasing the bad guys back to the street.”

Mr. LaPierre also said of the Navy Yard killer: “Aaron Alexis goes through the federal and state check and gets cleared because the mental health system makes this person completely unrecognizable.”

Mr. Obama is pandering to his left-wing base. A Rasmussen poll on Thursday showed that only 33 percent of Americans think more gun control laws would have prevented the tragedy at the Navy Yard.

The president should be a uniter, not a divider. Mr. Obama should stop blaming the good guys for the actions of the bad guys just to score political points.

NRA is fighting against the common sense gun show background check at the gun shows, that 90% of Americans support



Right now any criminal can go to a gun show and pick up a piece, or buy a bunch of guns and sell them to criminals in NYC



Hence, NRA is supporting criminals getting guns



It's not that difficult to follow



NOTHING LIKE PROVING YOU ARE A SHEEP BY USING SHEEP CATCH PHRASES, LOL



do any of you people author your own opinions?

I'm convinced that soremano isn't really an American political leftist, but more that he really enjoys getting people riled up, and on an MMA forum the easiest way to do it is to support Democratic policies. They way he parrots talking points (like the hilarious and now-debunked 90% statement), almost in an ironic and sarcastic manner, I mean... It's fucking funny.

One way or the other, it's hilarious. If he's trolling, it's hilarious. If he believes what he says, it's hilarious. VTFU, soremano. You get my one VTFU today.

How does that kool-aid taste sweetheart? Phone Post 3.0

When you buy a GUN from a DEALER at a GUN SHOW, they run the SAME FBI background check that is run when you buy a GUN from a DEALER at their STORE. This talking point is aimed at requiring your grandfather to do the same when he gives you his old shotgun. If ever at all, criminals do not go to gun shows to buy guns to commit crime. It didn't work that way. Here's a pro tip: go to a Fucking gun show and then come back and report what you saw. I've got 2 tickets for you. Phone Post

I remember the good old days when thy said "comprehensive" instead of "common sense". But, it is nice to see people use "common sense" because it lets me know they are just regurgitating talking points they heard.

not necessarily, that would depend on your state



the question is then, why is NRA fighting so hard against background check legislation if it's already being done? hmmm


Its a federal law. If you buy a gun from a gun dealer you have to do the background check.

Lol @ depend on your state. It's called a FEDERAL Firearms License for a reason. It's federal law for dealers to run background checks at gun shows.

It's incredulous to me that this administration survives Fast and Furious and really wants to disarm the US public. Phone Post

Every time this comes up the same idiots come out of the woodwork with this gun show bullshit. If Obama wanted to get rid of guns he should have done it right out of the gate. Instead he waits for innocent people to get killed then stands on their bodies to push his agenda.
