    Obama pulling the blanket over our eyes??

    This might sound paranoid, but does anyone else get the feeling that Obama is trying to blind the public with threatening our 2A rights so that he can get his other programs through (Obama care, etc) more readily without opposition? There is no logic behind any of their anti-2A arguments. The public is in such an uprising about these gun bills that I feel they've forgotten about the rest of his terrible ideas.

    This article got me thinking:

    You may be somewhat right about his strategy. But it is a certainty he would confiscate all guns today if he could.

    I completely agree, I'm sure he'd love nothing more than a gun free "Democracy"

    Possibly. Liberal democrats do prefer their constituents to be uneducated on issues. It makes their job easier when they don't have to deal with intellect.

    Obamacare is already law - it's not in the equation any more.
    Gun Control is just his next issue. It was always a goal, and the recent shootings gave him the political edge to promote his agenda.
    There are other agenda items too. They are being promoted as well. I think Gun Control is just next on the list, it's not a don't care issue used to slip other things past.

    There's not that much of an agenda going on here. I think things just happen. Sorta like the old bumper sticker. Obama is merely "reacting" to political pressures with no rhyme or reason, especially as it relates to gun control. It is what is and they will continue to react and over react as different issues presents themselves. They're just not that smart.

    Wow, a few months ago everyone was screaming "just watch...Obama will try to tak out guns in his second term"

    Fast forward to Jan. 2013/ Folks were saying "See! I told you he was coming after our guns all along!!!!"

    Today "Obama is talking tough about guns to distract us about other issues he want to "sneak" through!"

    Good Grief! Make up your minds. Make a prediction and stick with it.

    His longer term goal is to bash republicans in the hope of regaining the House so that he can push everything on his wish list through during his last two years. He isn't going to get much while Repulicans hold the House, but if Pelosi returns as Speaker, we are in real trouble on guns, energy, education, taxes, and just about anything those of a conservative nature would care about.

    I don't see that any of these are contradictions. It's all going according to Obama's plan. He just happens to be luckier than most the way events seem to move his agenda along.

    I agree with you all....and see the progressive influence/regime here in Colorado.
    Progressives WILL find their way. "His" plan has been executed to a T!!

    We gotta find "SOMEONE" that can lead us back to where we HAVE to be.
    Vote/Vote/Vote...and vote LOCAL, not just for the POTUS....
