    In a statement, Obama's press secretary said Obama “believes we need to take steps that protect Second Amendment rights of the American people but that ensure that we are not allowing weapons into the hands of individuals who should not, by existing law, obtain those weapons.” (Emphasis mine).

    Isn't this pretty solid evidence that Obama has realized that messing with 2nd Amendment rights is politically toxic now?

    I'd use caution in taking a calculated statement from the white house as an absolute indication of his wishes. I think we will learn more about Barry's stance on gun control from fast and furious than anything they have to say after the Colorado shooting.

    He can't right now,he needs the left gun owners votes.If he gets a 2nd term,all bets are off.'08.
     
  7. Only because he wishes to be re-elected.
    If this happened after Nov. and obama managed getting re-elected (heavens forbid!), his lips couldn't move fast enough calling for more stringent gun laws!

    How are they going to ensure that when they can't even keep track of a few firearms they give to Mexican cartels so they can shoot our LEOs on the border?

  15. 'Flexibility' by not having to concern himself with re-election.

    The squatter is a demokrat. When he opens his mouth, lies come out. With reference to his statement about the 2nd Amendment... remember, he's a demokrat. He opens his mouth and the lies come out. It's that simple. There is no need to give the matter any further thought.

    Looks like you should have waited just a few more days, Barry has spoken.

    Of course he completely forgot about the AK-47 variant his justice department helped Brian Terry's killer get.

    Based on the historical fact that Democrats are liars. By definition, all theives are liars; it doesn't matter if they are stealing other peoples success (money) or other people's liberty (guns, right to self-defense, etc...) a thief is a thief is a thief.

    There is a reckoning coming. The days of the mob demanding other's stuff, and actually getting it are coming to a close. Socialism died at the end of the last century. The Socialist dopes in western Europe, and their idiot step-cousins in America just missed the memo.

    Take this parasite as an example:
