Obama’s Gun Speech LAST NIGHT….

I’m running this post from yesterday because I’d like to get more input.  Thanks..

I watched most of Obama’s talk just now about the horrible Oregon shootings that happened today.

It was rather puzzling because he talks like there are no gun laws.  Am I missing something?   Some of the things he said were:

-We have to change the gun laws

-Congress won’t even let his administration gather data on gun violence

-The media hypes terrorism gun problems;  the math shows we should be more concerned about guns

-Gun owners ought to question  if “that organization” really speaks for them (the NRA, clearly)

-Vote anti-gun…we should vote for people who are anti-gun

-“They” (Republicans, the NRA, etc., apparently?) will say we need less gun control.

Many questions came to my mind.

-Who exactly is it who says we need less gun control?  

-What laws need to be changed?  Don’t we have background check laws?

CNN and MSNBC news readers were so sad and touched by Obama’s having shown he was ‘visibly shaken’ and ‘speaking extemporaneously’….so angry and sorry for the families.  Obama did say that “Each times this happens, I will say all of this again!”   (what a threat)

He was smirking, smiling sarcastically, and otherwise turning my stomach.

So, tell me……what’s he want?  Who are the Republicans who won’t even allow data gathering?

He mentioned how the media veers toward scaring us about terrorism more than they do about awful attacks like this……another question came to mind when I read a Tweet from that school this afternoon: (One witness says no words were exchanged but there were two classrooms so she may not have heard this):

oregon shooting

The name of the dead killer hasn’t been released as of this typing………I find that odd, particularly coupled with the information just above…….”are you Christians?”  BAM!
but, don’t let’s talk TERROR in the media………..

    Well . . . just exactly why was the shooter in a gun-free zone WITH A GUN!!!!!!

    I mean, it’s a college, right? Shouldn’t he be able to read the signs? If there’s a law against carrying a firearm, and very likely at least one or two prohibiting shooting people who aren’t in great need of a good deal of being shot, then how on earth could this happen!

    Hey, if we have laws prohibiting minors from consuming liquor, and laws prohibiting driving while intoxicated, and laws prohibiting purchase/sale/use of harsh narcotics and those are all working just fine, then why don’t we have more restrictive laws concerning ownership and carrying of firearms?

    What? We do?? Chicago has some of the toughest gun-control laws in the country but one of the highest murder rates?

    Oh . . . .

    Never mind.

  2. Imp says:

    Once more…the facts and the reasons for this type of carnage are clear:

    Eight attacks with firearms in gun free zones in the last eight years resulted in the lost of 105 lives and the wounding of 150 others. Those attacks were on the Lafayette Grand Theater (July 23), Chattanooga (July 16), Fort Hood (April 2, 2014), DC Navy Yard (September 16, 2013), Sandy Hook Elementary (December 14, 2012), Aurora movie theater (July 12, 2012), Fort Hood (November 5, 2009), and Virginia Tech (April 16, 2007)

    Since the shooter was 20….he didn’t have, again, a legal right to the gun, did he?

    Gun “free” zones are the danger to those who can’t or won’t be allowed to defend or arms themselves. Blame Guns? Nah…blame kumquats, unicorn, tofu eating , tree hugging liberal loons. Had there been a right to carry today on this campus…maybe once again, many would have been spared. 26 states allow campus carry, as they should. Oregon’s loons brought this on themselves.

  3. geeez2014 says:

    Still waiting for the NAME….He was killed and they’re saying he’d talked about this on social media…wait, but they don’t have a NAME?
    Only Christians were shot in the head……….others only injured in the legs…
    hmmm

  4. Kid says:

    The number of people saved by guns vs those wrongly killed by guns is like 10,000 to 1.

  5. John M. Berger says:

    “He was smirking, smiling sarcastically, and otherwise turning my stomach.”

    I scrambled for the remote as soon as he appeared. I knew that this fraud would be chomping-at-the-bit to use this for his agenda. The last time I looked murder is against the law. If murderers were “law”] abiding then they wouldn’t be murders; would they? How many, lawful, gun owners didn’t kill 13 people today? How many unlawful gunmen will commit murder in the Nation’s Gun Control/Murder Capital, known as Chicago, this week?

  6. Imp says:

    They know his name. And I have a feeling we know what it might be too. I think they’re trying to sanitize the shooter already. If it’s a mooselem…so what? It’s not like we’d do anything about it. Major Hassan is still alive, isn’t he?

  7. Oh save us, Mr Obama. Take all the legal guns so that only outlaws will have guns!

  8. Imp says:

    Shooter had 20 minutes to kill…before those cops showed up. Proving once again…that seconds count, when you’re not armed.

  9. Register Progressives/Muslims, NOT guns!

    The gunman who opened fire at an Oregon community college was forcing people to stand up and state their religion before he began blasting away at them, survivors said Thursday.
    A woman who claimed to have a grandmother inside a writing class in Snyder Hall, where a portion the massacre unfolded, described the scene in a tweet.

    “The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” she wrote. “If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs. My grandma just got to my house, and she was in the room. She wasn’t shot, but she is very upset.

  10. Kid says:

    IMP, Remember the Virginia Tech Korean punk? I saw pictures of SWAT guys in body armor hiding behind trees while he was still killing.

  11. Imp says:

    @Kid..yup. Even with all that armor…they still hid out.

  12. Bob says:

    Is there any record of people being murdered with a gun on a college campus by people who are licensed to carry guns? If there were the liberal media would be broadcasting that detail daily.

  13. Bob says:

    I didn’t mean being killed by a police officer. Duh!

  14. Bob says:

    Where’s the “I take it back!” button?

  15. Imp says:

    @Bob…I read of a couple accidents here and there. But..so what…they can happen anywhere.

  16. Imp says:

    Since 2012…6000 shootings in a city with the most onerous anti gun laws…not..it’s not Baghdad.

  17. bocopro says:

    This might not be popular with everyone, but I say let’s NOT announce the name, or the race, or the religion, or anything about the shooter. Why give him the airtime, the notoriety, the attention he was looking for?

    What I’d like to see is a brief announcement like this: “Today a lunatic a$$—- went ape—- on a community college campus in Oregon. After shooting several people, he was himself shot by local LEOs and then taken to a farm outside of town where he was fed to the hogs.”

    Nothing to see here . . . move along.

  18. Kid says:

    As Bill Whittle says in so many words… Get rid of the LBJ blacks, the illegals, and our ‘gun violence’ would be so low on the scale as to embarrass even a libtards for bringing it up.

    And hey folks, how are you going to protect yourself from the vermin who come busitng in with clubs, knives, or even bare hands if you’re a senior and they’re a couple young stud vermin people. ? Does anyone even think about that? I do and I’m not even female !

    Man, the kaka for brains quotient is through the Roof these days!

  19. FB says:

    Over 30,000 deaths by car per year in the US. Homicides (gun or not) are around a third of that. So conclusion: cars need to be banned.

  20. Kid says:

    boco, Yea, the idea has merit.

  21. Mal says:

    I believe most REASONABLE” people no longer take “O” at his word when he quotes stats. Besides, its been all over the news how Chicago and Detroit are the crime capitals of the U.S. which makes him look even MORE stupid. I just wish there could have been someone there to challenge him and his remarks. Hey! Why don’t we get one of the crazies to go do him in? The guy would become an instant hero AND prove guns can do good things, also! 🙂

  22. geeez2014 says:

    WOW, great comments.

    O’Reilly has been outraged and asking everybody he’s interviewed in law enforcement how weird it is they haven’t announced the perp’s name….he even HAS the name but didn’t want to run with it until it was announced. Well, if it’s John Doe…whatever. I just doubt any John Doe would ask Christians to stand up and blow their brains out…injuring in the legs those who don’t admit to being Christians.

    ALL of you hit the mark……….
    FB…yes, ban cars, and ban knives and all other instruments of death.

    I WISH some of you would answer some of my questions in my post, however………..don’t we HAVE gun laws? And some of you have mentioned , and it’s true, that Chicago has some of THE strongest gun laws and SO many deaths! Obama’s apparently too stupid to understand that.

    HONESTLY, there are times like this when I think these murders are done by the gov’t in order to get guns banned….and I KNOW I’m being nuts, but the amount of them lately is incredible…why SUCH an onslaught in SUCH a relatively short time in American history, other than the fact that leftwingers have destroyed the morals and our culture?

  23. geeez2014 says:

    The guy’s name is CHRIS HARPER MERCER…I shouldn’t even honor him with using his name…the swine.
    He asked Christians to stand up and killed them; odd that so many articles are ssaying only that “he asked their religion”….hmmm

  24. Kid says:

    “there are times like this when I think these murders are done by the gov’t in order to get guns banned”

    Not far fetched at all Z. Most if not all the mass murders in schools, theaters, were kids on psych drugs, and who prescribes those, and what party would we all bet 10 bucks on that the psychs support?

    Then the moslem vermin, Geeeez, obama is importing them at record speed, do we think some of these are not pre-programmed ?

  25. “I WISH some of you would answer some of my questions in my post, however………..don’t we HAVE gun laws?”
    We have laws. We don’t have a national ban.
    The left won’t stop until we do.
    I’m visiting the nation’s capitol.
    We saw where our rights are “enshrined”.
    We had to leave our guns at home, leaving us vulnerable, in my opinion.
    That’s what Obama wants.

  26. Mustang says:

    All the data Presidente Zero is whining about is collected and maintained by the FBI. I do think states and jurisdictions have the right not to provide the data the FBI is asking for, but what is provided is sufficient nationwide to form several logical conclusions about gun violence. Gun laws already exist in Oregon (a Democratic State) and they did not prevent this incident. Someone in the classroom who was armed might have saved lives. So the way I see this is, the state of Oregon is as much guilty for what happened as the hog-bait Moslem. My guess is that every time one of these events happens, Zero whispers, “Allah Snackbar.”

  27. Kid says:

    Ed, Yea, why don’t people group together and challenge these unconstitutional gun laws ?

    Right now, the 2nd is pretty well supported by the dog and pony show supreme court….

  28. Mustang says:

    @ Ed

    Yes, bingo. Government wants the people dependent upon government. At least the government is consistent, eh? As Imp said above, the police took 20 minutes to arrive at the scene. An armed student could have resolved the problem in less than a minute. My question is this: why does government WANT to provide soft targets for Islamic pukes?

  29. Kid says:

    Mustang, obamy Loves this stuff. It is hard to not think some of it is not orchestrated.

  30. Imp says:

    Does anyone think these college administrator asshats will admit they have blood on their hands and are responsible for this?

    “Joe Olson–the former president of Umpqua Community College–says the school only keeps one guard on shift at a time and that guard is unarmed.

    Olson left his position in June. He says one of the biggest debates at the school in 2014 was whether or not to hire armed officers.

    On November 5, 2014 a campus communique said the Umpqua Community College community was “split 50-50″ on what to do. According to the Associated Press, Olson presumes the October 1 attack will reignite the discussion not only for Umpqua Community College but for community colleges around the country.

  31. Imp says:

    Using unarmed security guards is like using lifeguards that can’t swim.

  32. Mustang says:

    @ Imp

    A responsible school administration, having already noted that this sort of thing has happened in the past, would have policy and procedures in place, and it would be rehearsed until everyone knew exactly what must happen should such an incident occur. Olson killed those people … what debate is there when human lives are at stake? He had a duty, he abrogated his responsibilities, he should be held culpable.

  33. Bob says:

    Never mention his name? I don’t think it makes any difference. If we don’t use his name we will talk about the Umpqua shooting. or another name. There is no honor for anybody. Well, except for the cops that took the vermin out.

    Chris Harper Mercer. There, I said it. It’s no more catchy than the names John Doe or Bill Maher.

    Besides, whoever heard of Umpqua?

  34. geeez2014 says:

    I’d heard the guards were unarmed and was stunned…….amazing.

    I’m sorry we even need to have people armed in classrooms; it says a lot about the psyche of America today. Until 30 years ago, who’d have ever thought any nut would shut kids in classrooms? This isn’t about guns at ALL….people have always had guns to hunt with, or parents had guns somewhere kids knew about, etc etc……this is about SICKNESS in our morality, the thought that killing people is okay, that they somehow deserve it.

    Never tell ME that this isn’t from schooling these days…..these poor kids aren’t even taught to love their country anymore; Imagine kids not feeling safe and secure and proud of their country like we did until lately? That’s a sickness and leads to all kinds of things; suicide, drugs, big-time tattoos, untamed sexuality, not even knowing what gender they are..etc etc.

    I heard today that some mother surprised her dear 10 year old (I think he’s 10 or 11) with ESTROGEN so he can take it and then be a girl, like he wants to be….that’s the new America

  35. fredd says:

    This shooting occurred about an hour away from where I grew up. Very rural, wooded, lots of hunting going on out there. People in that part of the country have about 10 guns per household. They’ve been armed to the teeth like this in that part of the country since Lewis and Clark trod the soil out thataway.

    Barry thinks he is going to take away all those guns? Or, that by passing some dumb ass laws restricting additional gun access, that all of those guns currently in all of those hands will somehow become irrelevant?

    Why is it that this didn’t happen 100 years ago? Same ratio of guns per citizen has been the norm forever out there. And now, Barry wants to fix things.

    One more point: 10 deaths at the hands of a madman Islamic terrorist in Roseburg Oregon (just wait, the guy’s name is Mustaffa, Mohammed, Ali, or something like that), and Barry takes to the stump bad mouthing the Second Amendment. 10 deaths just a few miles from his house in Chicago, aw shucks, that ain’t nothin’ but a normal weekend death toll in Barry’s old stomping grounds, and you can’t have a gun by law in Chicago.

    Barry is just plain dense.

  36. silverfiddle says:

    Even CNN is reporting on this, including that the man singled out Christians.

    Appears to be one more mentally ill person deciding to kill a bunch of people.

  37. Kid says:

    Saw the guy’s picture. he’s moslem vermin.

    Generally speaking I’d say Z’s got the line on this. Too many kids are not brought up with any exposure to decent values. They’re minds are mush in a sea of unpatriotic, gang banger, worthless celebrity adoring people with a media that only reports crap like this with big smiles on their faces because this is what brings in the money. Did you read about the 4 teenage black and hispanic punks who beat up another kid with a machete then buried him alive in Florida ?

    Where the * do these vermin come from?
    There are plenty of them around these days.

  38. BHO is so damned arrogant that I usually don’t watch his speeches. But I did watch his speech yesterday. What a Liar in Chief up on his high horse!

    I’m no fan of Bill O’Reilly, but I loved his tirade last night — his tirade about Obama’s gun speech yesterday.

    Those of you who know me know that I abandoned grading essays last night and started doing research about the murderer as soon as his name was revealed. And, lo, I learned that he “graduated” from the Switzer Learning Center in Torrance, California. He “graduated” because he aged out at age 21. What does that tell us? Hmmmmm?

    A few years ago, I had a student much like the Oregon murderer. You don’t want to know what this former student has recently done. His “educational” and social histories closely parallel the history of the Oregon murderer as this former student devolves. The parents don’t know what to do!

  39. Some nut points a gun at me and asks if I’m a Christian?
    My answer should be BOOM!
    Hey. I got an idea. Arm Christians!
    Stop disarming citizens.
    The answer should be BOOM!

    Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

  40. Imp says:

    Looks like damn near 30% are out of work? This isn’t by design?

    The number of foreign-born people employed in the U.S. increased again last month while the number of employed native-born Americans declined, according to new data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    According to the not seasonally adjusted BLS numbers, in September 24,928,000 foreign-born people were employed in the U.S., growing by 14,000 jobs compared to August when 24,914,000 foreign-born people were employed.

    Native-born Americans, meanwhile, experienced a loss in jobs, declining 262,000 from August’s level of 124,314,000 to 124,052,000 employed native-born people in September.

    Since the start of the recession in December of 2007, the foreign-born population has outpaced the native born population in net job growth.

    Time for our own Bastille Day?

  41. bunkerville says:

    Lock and load and these behaviors would stop. Simple and cheap solution.

  42. Imp says:

    A nutcase with his own demented motivation, ignored all of God’s and man’s laws, broke all federal, state and local laws, and committed multiple murder thereby demonstrating that no past, present or future law could have possibly or would have prevented him from committing murder. So our genius liberal progressive democrats demand…..more laws…..knowing their actions will have no impact AT ALL on preventing future murders by nutcases, and criminals who completely disregard and break laws…

    The smartest people in the room — yeah right

  43. John M. Berger says:

    OK, confiscate all privately owned firearms* then [they] graduate, let’s say, to propane bombs. Nuts and law breakers will always find a way!
    *can’t be done

  44. Lisa says:

    He was smirking, smiling sarcastically, and otherwise turning my stomach.”
    I noticed that too John which is why I muted him.
    He always does that when pushing his agenda just like when he said he heard not so kind things said by Christians.
    That is Obama ,president to only about 40-something % of the country. Amazing there are that many who still support him,many of who are just as snide and arrogant as he is

  45. Mal says:

    It also boils down to how easily we let people in today when compared to 100 years ago. When my dad came here via Ellis Island in 1915 they had to have a sponsor to assure them not being a burden to the U.S., pass a physical, speak English, and if they didn’t, take night classes to learn our language and American History. My dad had learned 3 languages including English before coming but his dad didn’t and had to attend evening classes. I remember my Grandfather telling me later during the Great Depression that if I learned to speak Armenian, he would give me .50 cents a week, and I told him if he learned to speak English, I would give him a dollar! My dad laughed.

  46. jerrydablade says:

    Just seems like this is happening more and more, as this society continues to decay. There isn’t even any middle ground when the left won’t even concede there is anything wrong with the butchering and selling of our babies. They’ll get their gun ban legislation. Of this I have no doubt.It’s the implementation where things get tricky.

  47. And the Liar in Chief is speaking now, trying to limit constitutional rights, blame budget woes on others not giving him what he wants, and then saying they must compromise.
    Oh, and claiming he’s brought us peace and a healthy economy.
    Responds to a question about Putin outsmarting him, at length, and then asks “What’s the question?” Says he wants Russia to be successful.
    If we talk about limiting the mentally unstable’s access to weapons, somebody need to take the football away from him.

  48. Imp says:

    @Ed…I’m thinking now would be the right time for a Military Coup to be successful.

  49. John M. Berger says:

    @Imp,
    “I’m thinking now would be the right time for a Military Coup to be successful.”

    Yeah, before B.O.’s LGBT military takes complete charge!

  50. geeez2014 says:

    Brother! What could anybody add to your comments? thanks so much…..good input.

    Mal, about immigration; most of us are from immigrant families and what I think leftwingers have never wanted to realize is that many of these immigrants aren’t America-loving, appreciative people who can’t wait to learn the language and assimilate and are so PROUD, so unbelievably proud, to be here…and can’t wait to become Americans.
    This new crop the last 30 years or so mostly just wants to be here for freebies, and shoving their way to jobs Americans can’t get anymore (all construction types of business, gardening, cleaning, grocery store clerks, fast food shops, etc etc etc) ….
    PLEASE nobody think I don’t realize a lot of good immigrants do come for better opportunity and DO learn English and are fabulous people…just fabulous!, but……….
    we cannot treat the new immigrants as we treated those we knew loved this country…it’s stupid and dangerous. So sad.

  51. The guy was a Progresiive militia member wanting to form the eco-pure republic of Cascadia (from his avatar flag in his internet postings)

  52. bocopro says:

    Allow me to summarize the general mood I hear here re our Chief Executive’s judgment:
    (with apologies to A. E. Houseman for the corruption of his “To An Athlete Dying Young”)

    To A Con-Man Getting Out Of Dodge

    Some years ago you won a race,
    Then captured every polling place
    Where ethnic loyalty was high
    With “Hope” and “Change” the new war cry.

    And now, the path all liars walk,
    Who thrive on gossip, fear, and talk,
    Your legacy comes crashing down
    As jobs and revenue leave town.

    ‘Tis good your reign was lawful set
    At just two terms, with no regret,
    By men much wiser than you are
    To stay your dreams of lifetime Czar.

    Smart men, to know the siren’s lure
    Of power, riches, haute grandeur
    That cause the weakness to erupt
    Which makes men evil and corrupt.

    So now you will not hear the praise
    Of those who did your logo raise
    But of instead the non-white folk
    Who now are poorer, lost, and broke.

    Today, as all your speeches fade
    And they can see mistakes you made,
    It’s clear they had much better chance
    Before they fell into your trance.

    Awakened now, they wait to hear
    You put an end to your career
    By saying two short words so fine,
    The nightmare’s ending: “I resign.”

  53. Baysider says:

    “We have to change the gun laws.” Well, he’s RIGHT! We need to get rid of rules that say no guns on campus, for example. I can guarantee you that if he knew that in right-to-carry-Oregon that the campus had a lot of people trained and well armed with concealed weapons very few incidents like this would happen. If any. there’s a reason they pick schools, as Mustang noted – soft targets. Duh
