I wrote Obama & told him I was against any gun control. Here is his response.
Note: I highlighted in bold a few sentences.


The White House, Washington

Dear XXXXX:

Thank you for taking the time to write. I have heard from many Americans regarding firearms policy and gun violence in our Nation, and I appreciate your perspective. From Aurora to Newtown to the streets of Chicago, we have seen the devastating effects gun violence has on our American family. I join countless others in grieving for all those whose lives have been taken too soon by gun violence.


Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. In this country, we have a strong tradition of gun ownership that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hunting and sport shooting are part of our national heritage. Yet, even as we acknowledge that almost all gun owners in America are responsible, when we look at the devastation caused by gun violence—whether in high-profile tragedies or the daily heartbreak that plagues our cities—we must ask ourselves whether we are doing enough.


While reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm should not be a divisive one. Most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. Most also agree that if we took commonsense steps to curtail gun violence, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown. We will not be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing we can do to reduce gun violence—if even one life can be saved—then we have an obligation to try.


That is why I asked Vice President Joe Biden to identify concrete steps we can take to keep our children safe, help prevent mass shootings, and reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. He met with over 200 groups representing a broad cross-section of Americans and heard their best ideas. I have put forward a specific set of proposals based off of his efforts, and in the days ahead, I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality.


My plan gives law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals, and the public health community some of the tools they need to help reduce gun violence. These tools include strengthening the background check system, helping schools hire more resource officers and counselors and develop emergency preparedness plans, and ensuring mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. And I directed the Centers for Disease Control to study the best ways to reduce gun violence—because it is critical that we understand the science behind this public health crisis.


As important as these steps are, they are not a substitute for action from Congress. To make a real and lasting difference, members of Congress must also act. As part of my comprehensive plan, I have called on them to pass some specific proposals right away. First, it is time to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. Second, Congress should renew the 10-round limit on magazines and reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban. We should get tougher on those who buy guns with the purpose of selling them to criminals, and we should impose serious punishments on anyone who helps them do this.


These are reasonable, commonsense measures that have the support of the majority of the American people. But change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love. We owe the victims of heartbreaking national tragedies and the countless unheralded tragedies each year nothing less than our best effort—to seek consensus in order to save lives and ensure a brighter future for our children.


Thank you, again, for writing. I encourage you to visit Now is the time | The White House to learn more about my Administration’s approach.


Sincerely,

Barack Obama


He says "change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers", but he ignores my demand to leave the Second Amendment alone! :aargh4::aargh4: :aargh4:

Note: If you visit the referenced web site (Now is the time | The White House) ... to learn more about my Administration’s approach, you can only register to support him, there is no place to register your opposition. This is how this communist administration works.

Yep, same letter I got a while back. Quite frankly I would love to send him another letter, but I'm not sure I can effectively articulate my thoughts in words he will understand, and I'm sure if I said what I think he really needs to here I'd probably have the Gestapo knocking on my door. I've most absolutely had it with him and his BS and I'm sick and freaking tired of listening to him lie to the entire country.

I have sent Obama several emails with Pro 2A and anti-gun control content. I doubt he has read any of them. And more than likely his staff sent them directly to the trash bin without a second thought. So far I haven't received a response back from my emails from the Obama administration which is fine by me.

According to this letter, Barry thinks the Second Amendment is for "Hunting and sport shooting". I guess we must have it all wrong. Darn education failed me again. :sheep:

From the Prez said:

We have a strong tradition of defense of liberty, repelling invaders and overthrow of tyrants, as well ... foreign and domestic.

Hence the 2A.

Hence the vehemence at the current robotic strip-mining of our liberties, bought and paid for by autocrats-r-us. (Well, "bought off" certainly, but paid for by each of us, the People.)

He just doesn't get it. He doesn't want to get the dragon he's raising from the dead. None of them do. Too bad. Reap what you sow.

This guy lives in a fantasy land.

Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms.
Did anyone else catch that^^^^and that^^^^is not a typo and he purposely omitted KEEP AND.

Not an individual's right to keep and bear arms but an individual right to bear arms.

So he believes the 2nd amendment guarantees only one of the following:

a single right to bear arms

an intended for one person only right to bear arms

a single person right to bear arms

a distinct indivisible entity right to bear arms

a distinguished by special characteristics right to bear arms

One thing we know for certain is that he does not believe that the 2nd amendment guarantees an individual's right to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

"majority of the American people..."
"The majority of Americans agree with me..."

Nest time you hear Obama speaking, see if he says these lines, or ones like them. I've been keeping track for a couple weeks, and he almost ALWAYS states this like it is obviously true. He is using it to push his agendas. I have noticed it not only on gun stuff, but also many other areas. He used it in this letter also.

Speak of the devil I got the same emailed letter from whoever it is that sends em out saying the exact same thing. I doubt hes read even one email or letter hes been sent on anything that some staffer didnt point out that he could use to bolster his positioin.

I got the same canned reply. He's going on again about "reasonable and commonsense measures." Sorry Barry, there's nothing "reasonable" or "commonsense" about them. The bottom line is that these politicians are willing to infringe on a right that is specifically mentioned in the BOR as being off limits. That's exactly why the words "shall not be infringed" are part of the amendment and why it is part of the BOR.

You see Obama does not want to take your guns, he never did. So take off the tin foil all is well.
We just need some reasonable adjustments we can all agree on.
Remember you voted for him so live with it this is just the first phase.

BHO is not interested in hearing from Redneck, Homophobe, Unsophisticated, Bitter/Clinger, Racisits........or put another way - those who disagree with him. Your time would be better spent poking an ice pick into your ear.

I believe Obummers stance on My Right to Keep and Bear Arms like I believe he was born in This Country. It's a Travesty of Injustice to have someone of such Low Character as BHO at the helm of Our Country.
