    In Denver, Obama tries to rally support for gun buyer background checks

    Obama drew applause when he pressed for the assault weapon ban despite its bleak prospects in the Senate. At least 15 of the 55-member Senate Democratic caucus are expected to join all the chamber's 45 Republicans to reject the measure.

    Obama plans to visit Connecticut next week to continue his push for action on reducing gun violence.

    "I don't believe that weapons designed for theaters of war have a place in movie theaters. Most Americans agree with that," Obama said.

    Mr. President there is a law in America that does not allow ownership of weapons designed for theaters of war and you know this fact. However Mr. President you and other anti gun advocates continue to attempt to fool the people that ownership is allowed. Mr. President you seem to have forgotten that the Bill of Rights(which includes the 2nd amendment) are in essence anti government rights and it is the people that "rule" and the three branches of government are only their to serve the people.

    Sorta good news for us... So far President Obama is visiting the the states that have already done damage to the 2nd amendment........

    Weapons of war huh?

    What a bunch of liberal rhetoric.

    There isnt a country in the world that dosent issue its troops select fire weapons. Which these are not. He is either ignorant or a liar.

    What tyrant doesnt want to control weapons? They want a monopoly of force.

    He visits those states as a cheerleader rallying the troops in hopes that other heavily Democratic states will follow the lead and initiate their own gun control measures. If he can't accomplish gun control measures on the national level, he'll implement it state by state. It's pretty much the same strategy that the Right to Life folks have been using when Roe v Wade wasn't overturned. Just work on it state by state.

    I'm going to love it if some people take these laws in those states to court and do a serious challenge of them, and win.

    I hope you're right, but I'm not ready to laugh just yet...

    The state Senate passed the bill just moments after President Barack Obama finished a rally in Denver where he continued his push for Congress to pass a bill requiring background checks for every gun owner.

    Next week, the president will travel to Hartford to continue his call for stricter gun control laws as the Senate prepares to take up the bill.

    You think more highly of him than I do. I don't think he is ignorant at all. I think he has made a calculated decision to lie straight up to the American people on any number of issues. Many of the folks are too stupid to figure it out and they eat it up. Personally, I think his actions warrant impeachment, but the current senate would never convict, so what's the point?

    Well, I see he got some cops to stand behind him... I heard they didn't want to...

    I wonder, then, when they are told to come and get your guns, will they say "We don't wanna!" and still come knocking at your door?
    My bet is they will, folks.. a great majority of them. Few people (in any profession) actually have the "courage of their convictions" beyond a paycheck.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    He said that our bills were bipartisan. That is bull crap. There was a lot of opposition to those bills. The Dems didn't care. He may have grand standed too early here. It is not over by a long shot.

    When Obama is through with politics, he can become a minister, since he is already becoming adept at preaching to the choir.

    Two things:
    1. Call it like it is. This administration L I E S to us all the time.
    2. Undermining our Constitution is what this administration's ultimate goal is.
