    The Point of Obama’s Gun Tour

    The Point of Obama?s Gun Tour « Commentary Magazine

    This is an excellent article that asks an important question:

    "If the new measures, even the parts of the package, like universal background checks on gun sales, that most Americans view as both reasonable and appropriate, are not going to “bring gun deaths down,” then why are we being asked to support them and told that opponents of this legislation are extremists who don’t care about the children who were gunned down in Newtown? And it is exactly the answer to that question that makes some people regard the assurances coming from the administration of their unswerving support of the Second Amendment as being disingenuous."

    He misses the mark here:

    "Though there is nothing unreasonable about limits on certain types of military-style weapons or ammunition, so long as these proposals are unconnected to any plausible hope of saving lives..."

    But hits it here:

    "So long as the administration cannot assert that their gun package will actually make the country safer, it is hardly paranoid for gun rights advocates to think this is merely the thin edge of the wedge of a legislative campaign that will ultimately lead to something that will infringe on the constitutional rights of Americans."
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Creeping tyranny is insidious because it is not recognized until late in the game.

    Long dissertation here about this issue here on this forum.

    Ten Bears: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men.

    Again I repeat myself, but we MUST keep this in mind!

    The liberal agenda is to undermine our Constitution so that this Free Republic that we all love will eventually become a socialistic/communistic dictatorship. I dread to think of what our children and grand children will need to deal with if we can not stop it.

    Don't take my word for this, it does not take a big effort to see what universities and now even high schools are teaching.

    Conspiracy? No there is no conspiracy it is painfully obvious that the liberal Democrats, the mainstream media and many universities are working together in this undermining of the Constitution.
