Right On Cue, President Asshat Uses Kalamazoo Murders To Push More Neo-Nazi Gun Control Measures

Obama On Kalamazoo: More Needs To Be Done On Gun Control – The Hill

.

.
President Obama on Monday condemned a weekend shooting rampage in Kalamazoo, Mich., calling it a stark example that more needs to be done to prevent gun violence in America.

The president said he phoned the mayor, police chief and sheriff in Kalamazoo to offer federal assistance in the investigation.

“Their local officials and first responders did an outstanding job in apprehending the individual very quickly,” he told a meeting of the National Governors Association at the White House. “But you’ve got families who are shattered today.”

Obama cited a series of executive actions he took last month designed to expand background checks on gun purchases, but he added that “it’s clear we’re going to need to do more to keep innocent Americans safe.”

An Über driver allegedly killed six people and injured two others during a Saturday shooting spree in Kalamazoo. The man, identified as police as Jason Brian Dalton, reportedly picked up passengers between shootings.

Obama cited last year’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., by Islamic State in Iraq and Syria sympathizers as an incident that terrorized the nation, adding “here’s a hard truth, we probably lost even more Americans than that this weekend alone.”

“I’ve got to assume that all of your are just as tired as I am of seeing this stuff happen in your states,” the president continued.

“So that’s an area where we need to partner and think about what we can do in a common-sense way, in a bipartisan way, without some of the ideological rhetoric that so often surrounds that issue.”

The shooting in Kalamazoo was just the latest mass incident of gun violence that has occured in Obama’s presidency.

Obama has delivered forceful, emotional calls for new gun laws after shootings in Newtown, Conn., in 2012 and Charleston, S.C. in 2015.

But the president has repeatedly been stymied by Republicans in Congress in passing new gun laws, such as universal background checks and an assault weapons ban.

In January, Obama issued a new executive actions clarifying which gun sellers are required to conduct background checks on buyers.

Kurt Russell Tells Leftist Reporter It’s ‘Absolutely Insane’ To Think Gun Control Will Stop Terrorists

Kurt Russell: ‘Absolutely Insane’ To Think Gun Control Will Change Terrorists – Big Hollywood

.

.
In a recent interview with Jeffrey Wells, acting legend Kurt Russell responded to questions on the San Bernardino attacks by saying it’s “absolutely insane” to “think gun control will change terrorists’ point of view.”

This was preceded by Russell explaining that he doesn’t “understand concepts of conversation about gun culture” because “we’ve lived with guns since, what, the 7th Century or something?”

But according to Hollywood Elsewhere, Wells continued to paw at Russell, combining the emphasis on terrorism with the suggestion that guns are something “disenfranchised white guys need” so they can “feel good about themselves.”

Russell said:
.

If you think gun control is going to change the terrorists’ point of view, I think you’re, like, out of your mind. I think anybody [who says that] is. I think it’s absolutely insane. The problem, the problem that we’re having right now to turn it around… you may think you’ve got me worried about what you’re gonna do? Dude, you’re about to find out what I’m gonna do, and that’s gonna worry you a lot more. And that’s what we need. That will change the concept of gun culture, as you call it, to something [like] reality. Which is, if I’m a hockey team and I’ve got some guy bearing down on me as a goal tender, I’m not concerned about what he’s gonna do – I’m gonna make him concerned about what I’m gonna do…

.
Wells responded with, “I get that,” and Russell seized the opportunity to go back to an earlier question about the line separating fantasy and reality and said that reality is doing what has to be done to “stop” the guy coming at you–whether that guy is in the hockey scenario or in a scenario hedged in by terrorism. And once you “stop him,” Russell said, “That’s when things change.”

Wells countered by sticking with the gun control theme, saying, “Obama’s point was that the guys on the no-fly list, [they’re on it] for good reason because of terrorist connections or suspicions… they can get hold of a gun pretty easily.”

Russell said, “They can also make a bomb pretty easily. So what? They can also get knives and stab you. Whaddaya gonna do about that? They can also get cars and run you over. Whaddaya gonna do about that?”

Wells said, “They didn’t kill the people in San Bernardino with cars.”

Russell retorted, “But they’ve killed others that way, haven’t they? Yeah, yeah. Whaddaya gonna do? Outlaw everything? That isn’t the answer.”

Wells then said the words, “Just put some controls…” to which Russell responded, “Put some controls? What, so the people, so the people who want to defend themselves can’t?”

Wells tried to right the ship, saying, “No, not so you can’t, just so the idiots can’t get hold of them [so easily], that’s all.”

Russell said, “You really believe they’re not going to? Are you serious about that? What good will that…? Oh my God. You and I just disagree.”

Moms Demand Action helps prove that gun control does not work

Via Bearing Arms

Whoopsie!! Yesterday, the anti-gun group Moms Demand Action jumped at the chance to politicize the terrorist attacks in Paris, likening them to gun violence in America.

But that’s not all they’ve tweeted.

Earlier today, they shared a link to enlighten everyone on how guns get into Paris

Screen-Shot-2015-11-14-at-6.17.55-PM

The article from The Daily Beast says despite France’s strict gun laws, guns still flow through Europe and into the country:

France outlaws most gun ownership and it’s almost impossible to legally acquire a high-powered rifle such as an AK-47, so where did the weapons in the Nov. 13 terror attack—not to mention the bloody January assault by Islamic terrorists on the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo magazine and the 2012 shootings by a militant in Toulouse—come from?

The answer: Eastern Europe, most likely, where the trafficking of deadly small arms is big, shady business. And where local authorities find it difficult to intervene.

The French government and the European Union know they have a foreign gun problem. But as the chain of attacks illustrates, efforts to tamp down on the flow of weapons have, so far, failed to disarm terrorists.

You would think they would be a tad smarter than the average idiot, but, their bloodlust leads them on

Your non-shocker of the day, gun laws did nothing to stop San Francisco shooting by illegal alien

Yet, Liberals will still bleat for “common sense gun laws”

Via Breitbart:

When Francisco Sanchez allegedly gunned down Kathryn Steinle at San Francisco’s Pier 14 on July 1, Breitbart News discovered that Sanchez had been deported from the country five times. We also discovered another interesting tidbit–Sanchez has seven felonies, which means he faces 100 percent gun control 100 percent of the time.

He is completely barred from gun possession and prohibited from having the gun with which he allegedly shot and killed Steinle.

The fact that the allegedly had one anyway proves again that gun control does not affect the behavior of criminals, but it does place law-abiding citizens in a scenario where it is harder for them to get the guns they need for self-defense.

According to NBC Bay Area, “Sanchez has seven prior felony convictions, four of which were for drug charges.” The felony “convictions took place in states including Texas, Oregon and Arizona.”

But those convictions–and the resulting ban on Sanchez purchasing or possessing a firearm–appear to have done nothing to keep him obtaining one and, worse still, using it. Moreover, California’s expanded background check requirement, their state gun registry, and their 10-round magazine limit were powerless to protect Steinle.

Again, gun control merely empowers the criminals

I trhought Melissa Joan Hart was smarter than to support anti-second amendment nuts

This is disappointing

On May 4, actress Melissa Joan Hart appeared in a new gun control PSA in which she suggests gun control should be a topic of causal conversation.

She also uses the PSA to exclaim that she is “a member of Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America.”

Breitbart News previously reported that Hart had signed on as spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action’s newest gun control campaign, and now we see she is not simply a spokeswoman but a member of the gun control group as well.

In the May 4 PSA Hart talks about how eagerly friends talk about receiving “a promotion at work” or how quick kids talk “when they ace a test.” In the same way, she says we need to talk about gun control; and this includes talking to friends and neighbors about locking up their guns.

Securing firearms is one thing, mine are kept where my little niece cannot get to them, but they are not stored so as to be useless should I ever need them, as this PSA suggests

In another part of the PSA, Hart appears beside a man in a police uniform who takes the magazine out of handgun, locks the magazine in a safe, then runs a cable lock through the gun, rendering it inoperable. He then hands the key for the cable lock to Hart. As he does this, Hart talks about the importance of locking up the gun and ammo separately.

She never once explains what a father is supposed to do when an intruder enters the house at 3 a.m. but the gun is locked in one closet and the ammo in another. Nor does she venture a guess on what a single mom is supposed to do when she and the kids get home from a movie, only to find sexual predators in the house waiting for them.

Does the mother ask the sexual predator if he can give her a few minutes to freshen up, then use that time to unlock the gun in one room and run to another to unlock the ammo?

It is unnecessary to lock you gun up in one safe, and then the magazine in another, and maybe the bullets somewhere else. That is not safe, in fact it renders your firearm basically useless should someone break in. Seems that the Cult of Gun Control is not about gun safety at all, but about disarming us by any means they can utilize. As I keep saying the war on gun rights IS a war on self-defense.

Republican Governor Of Tennessee Signs Bill Prohibiting State Cooperation With Federal Gun Control Laws

TN Gov. Signs Bill Prohibiting State Cooperation with Fed Gun Control Laws – Big Government

.

.
On April 30, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) signed Senate Bill 1110 – a bill which bars state cooperation with federal gun control laws.

Sponsored by Senator Richard Briggs (R-Dist. 7), SB 1110 “prohibits the use of any public funds, personnel, or property to enforce any federal law or regulation that regulates the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories.”

SB 1110 passed the house by a margin of 74 to 20 and the senate by a margin of 24 to 1.

According to the Tenth Amendment Center, the measure was “originally introduced in the House as HB1341 by Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver.” At that time, Weaver said, “I’m from the cut that there is no need for Washington D.C. to be the end all and be all with regards to the regulatory world. We should respect our 10th Amendment and shift the power back to the states and that’s what House Bill 1341 does.”

What was true for HB 1341 is also true for SB 1110.

This law comes on the heels of another blow to federal gun control signed by Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) last week. On April 29, Pence signed Senate Bill 433 – a bill that “repeals the prohibition against manufacturing, importing, selling, or possessing a sawed-off shotgun.”

SB 433 addresses the ban on short barreled, modified shotguns and will also present a challenge to the federal government’s “title II firearm” policy requiring registration fees and transfer records each time the firearm changes hands.
