Yeah, trying to REPEAL the BILL of RIGHTS is definitely ONE TOUGH FIGHT!

But with a Robo Pen in hand, the Mighty Obama, Dictator of NON-United States of America, will do battle with those nasty LAW ABIDING gun owners via EXECUTIVE ORDERS that are a VIOLATION of the CONSTITUTION.

When he could NOT get Cap and Trade passed, he just EXECUTIVE ORDERED the WAR on COAL via the EPA.

Hey Lisa Jackson, How did THAT work out for ya??? Will he throw JOE BIDEN under the Bus on Gun Control FAIL?????

Stay Tuned.

IMPEACH the Tyrant NOW!

Why, we haven't heard ONE WORD about the FAILED ECONOMY or FISCAL CLIFF this week!!!

Just another spending bill. 500 million for 10 years (they use 10 years for projected spending cuts) is 5 billion dollars.

150 million to hire 1,000 new school cops, counselors and psychologists! We have 99,000 public schools in the US! So the goberment will pick-n-choose winners and losers with a 1 in 99 chance of getting it right! What a "great" idea.....

The majority will force reasonable change. The second amendment will be preserved as it should be. May calmer wiser thought rule the day. Americans want change so let's make sure that happens. Our democracy works best when we mobilize. The rest of you can stay right here and call people names!

When Obama entered office in 2009, unemployment was rising through 8 percent, millions of Americans were becoming jobless, record numbers of American were becoming dependent on food stamps.

What was Barry Bankrupter’s number-one priority? Obamacare.

Now that Obama is entering his second term in 2013, unemployment is STILL at 8%. STILL 22 MILLION Americans jobless. A new record 48 MILLION Americans are on food stamps.

What’s Barry Bengazi’s number-one priority? Gun control.

Maybe one of you libbies needs to remind Barry IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID.

mmm mmm mmm, distract deceive, deny

This admin. will find more ways to spend money, create jobs, needed or not. I find it very sickening that the average person falls for it. Too, too many with their paws out for freebees.

Ronald Reagan supported a BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS.

Antonin Scalia ruled that it is CONSTITUTIONAL.

So remind me how this is about Obama, freedom & the 2nd Admendment.

If the "law" is passed by congress, does that mean I have to turn in my guns with clips of more than 10 shells?

dyingov, good question. I guess, like Obamacare, we’ll have to pass the bill so we can find out what’s in it.

look your grandchild, toddler, son, daughter and explain to them why you need ammo clips that carry that many bullets. tell them u support clips that hold more ammo. even they will know you don't need that many and by fighting for them you make it easier to kill more people with one clip. have a peach of a day.

whgfeeler, Don't kid yourself, FOOL!

And these peeps practice more than most!

"New York City police statistics show that simply hitting a target, let alone hitting it in a specific spot, is a difficult challenge. In 2006, in cases where police officers intentionally fired a gun at a person, they discharged 364 bullets and hit their target 103 times, for a hit rate of 28.3 percent, according to the department’s Firearms Discharge Report. The police shot and killed 13 people last year.

In 2005, officers fired 472 times in the same circumstances, hitting their mark 82 times, for a 17.4 percent hit rate. They shot and killed nine people that year."

@whgfeeling.You are the total freaking idiot. The only gun you have probably shot is a water pistol. Obuma is trying to take every right away from us we have, and you and the other stupid people are backing him. You just keep showing how stupid you are. You should get a life, and don't say anything about mine, because I never voted for the moron either time. He is a disgrace as our leader.

Ronald Reagan pushed amnesty that would end the illegal problem choking American budget outlay. How did that work for you ?

look your grandchild, toddler, son, daughter and explain to them why you need ammo clips that carry that many bullets. 90 rounds in three clips or 90 rounds poking holes in your pocket. What is the point. One round coming out the barrel is the meat and potatoes in the stew.

Individual gun rights are important. They are something you already have on the books that liberal progressives would never in a million years restore if lost.

The "assualt weapons" we are talking about are nothing more than ordinary rifles that have been made to "look" like military weapons to be used on the batlefield. Their "legal" equivalent without the bling are just as destructive and can kill just as quickly. As for the reduced magazine sizes, the nut case or the criminal will just bring more magazines. What about all the 30 round magazines out in circulation now? Do you think the criminal with not use them just because they have been made illegal?

These actions will have little or no effect to curb gun violence.

Time to look toward Hollywood and the video game industry.

This is what the largest "big government" liberal of the day had to say about the people being EQUALLY armed as the "standing armies"

Little more can reasonably be aimed at, with respect to the people at large, than to have them properly armed and equipped; and in order to see that this be not neglected, it will be necessary to assemble them once or twice in the course of a year ... if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist." -- James Madison, Federalist No. 29

@whgfeeling. You are the moron and you can take that to the bank. Your logic is absolutely horrible. The "O Mighty" Obuma is trying to take everyones guns How about you going out bear hunting one day with one shell in your gun and you wound the bear. From there, you are history, the bear will eat you alive. I don't know which is more stupider, you or your remarks. Check the stats and see how many people are killed by drunk drivers. Also ban forks as they cause obesity which kills people. Now you can pull your foot out of your mouth.

These are trained PROFESSIONALS and gun nuts and the NRA want to ARM TEACHERS AND VOLUNTEER VERERANS to protect schools. HOW DO YOU THINK THAT WILL WORK OUT??? There would be bullets flying every direction and childeren falling from FRIENDLY FIRE!
