White House Confirms Obama Wants To Ban Guns
concerning Mitt Romney’s failure to pay taxes for ten years, yet not
disavow the remarks, but he also affirmed the fact that Barack Obama is
also out to ban guns, something we’ve known all along. He affirmed
Obama’s position to re-institute the assault weapons ban that expired in
Of course I warned about such calls for more gun control on Monday.
When asked whether Obama supported renewing the 1994-2004 federal ban of semi-automatic weapons for civilians, Carney responded,
“He does support renewing the assault weapons ban,” and
he added that “there has been reluctance by Congress to pass that
I will interject to say there is good reason that Congress doesn’t
act. Banning supposed “assault weapons” does nothing to stop criminals
from acquiring them. The Obama administration should know this best
seeing that they delivered some 2,500 semi-automatic weapons into the
hands of Mexican drug cartels, which were responsible for at least two
U.S. federal agent deaths and the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans. As
I’ve said before we need more politician control legislation rather than
gun control legislation.
While Carney said that the administration intends to push for gun
safety “under existing law” and “not infringe upon Second Amendment
rights of citizens” the fact is that is the exact opposite of what such
measures do. The issue is not “gun safety.” That is merely the
marketing of the Obama administration. Gun safety is what an individual
does, not what government does. The Obama administration is not
interested in gun safety. They are interested in gun banning.
Understand something here. The call for the ban of semi-automatic
weapons is a call for most modern guns on the market. According to Reuters, the shooter at the Sikh temple was using a simple Springfield 9mm semiautomatic handgun.
