“President” Barack Obama, speaking in Mexico today, blamed that country’s violence on American guns. This would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic.
“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.
You know what else would save lives in Mexico, you arrogant asshole? Not funneling guns to Mexican drug cartels. Or did you think we forgot about Fast and Furious?
There is video at the link, if you can stomach it.
The city council of Nelson, Georgia is proposing a law which would make gun ownership mandatory.
Hear that? That’s the sound of liberal skulls exploding.
Every homeowner in a local town could soon have to own a gun or break the law. It’s a controversial new plan for the city of Nelson. Leaders [said] the reason they need the law is because the city straddles Cherokee county to the south and Pickens County to the north. That, they said, can lead to slower response times.
One police officer patrols Nelson, Georgia for eight hours during the day. That leaves 16 hours overnight when the city is basically unguarded.
“When he’s not here we rely on county sheriffs; however it takes a while for them to get here,” said Nelson City Councilman Duane Cronic. That’s why [he] proposed the ordinance.
I see the point of the ordinance, but I don’t necessarily agree with it. Every citizen of Nelson should be allowed – no, encouraged – to own a firearm, but I don’t believe anyone should have a gun forced upon them.
Doing otherwise makes this law no different than New York’s ridiculous new gun legislation.
You know, the saying “shoot you full of hot lead” refers to a projectile after it is fired; not ones that were heated in an Elmira oven.
A woman cooking herself a snack has been wounded after the bullets her roommate left inside the oven exploded and sprayed her with shrapnel.
Aalaya Walker, 18, preheated the oven of her apartment in Tampa, Florida, on Monday to make herself waffles – not knowing that Javarski ‘JJ’ Sandy, 25, had stashed his pistol magazine with four live rounds in the appliance.
Ms Walker was hit in the chest and the leg by shrapnel from at least one round.
Mr Sandy, who legally owns a .45-caliber Glock 21 semiautomatic pistol, told police he took the magazine out of his gun and put it in the oven. He put the gun itself in a drawer. He never explained to officers why he put the clip with four live rounds in the oven.
I’m no doctor, but it might have something to do with the fact that Sandy is a friggin’ moron. As a result of this story, the Obama administration is crafting legislation to ban ovens.
If you’re in the Virginia Beach area, send your business toward All Around Pizzas And Deli. And feel free to bring your firearm.
A Virginia Beach pizza shop is apparently handing out discounts to customers who brandish their firearms or show a concealed weapons permit in support of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. The store’s owner Jay Laze claims that the offer has been an enormous success for promoting his business, with 80 percent of customers showing off their weapons including one who brought an AK-47 rifle.
Natch, the libtards are mortified. Many of them were wondering what the owner will do when a gun-toting thugs saunters in.
Um, I’m fairly sure the employees of a business that employs such a policy are well-armed.
Meet Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag; neither are God’s greatest work. These two are famous simply for being famous; a phenomenon I call The Snooki Factor.
These mental defectives recently showed of their gun collection to a stiff-ass Brit’s camera crew, and boasted about their Second Amendment rights… while posing for pictures using terrible trigger discipline.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt sparked debate after a Channel 5 documentary aired about the pair on Monday night. The married couple posed with their gun collection while giving a tour of their American home claiming they need the weapons for protection.
In the program, the married couple were shown brandishing their arsenal of weapons including a Benelli semi-automatic shotgun and rapid engagement precision rifle.
After claiming British gun laws are too strict, Spencer opened the room where he stored their guns to show cameras around.
Heidi admitted she takes comfort knowing they have guns in her and Spencer’s Santa Barbara house as she feels unsafe knowing fans could break into the property.
Wow, considering their skyrocketing popularity, they would need what, one, two bullets, tops?
Oh, by the way, every photo in the article shows their fingers on the trigger. Every. Single. Photo.
Well, unless it involves two babes using them to bring home the bacon.
Here’s some pics of few nice wild boars taken by 21yr. old Regis Giles of GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com and 16yr. old Bethany Vallorani. Their weapon of choice? An AR-15. Yep, the very gun that the lunatic Left says we can’t/don’t use for hunting. Well, Regis and Bethany used it and boy did it do the job. Bacon down!
Both Regis and Bethany shot their respective hogs as they charged them! Yahoo. It was way more exciting than going to the mall. (H/T – Jim Ramsey)
Babes, bacon, and boomsticks. God bless America!
Be vewy vewy quiet; Barack Obama is hunting wabbits.
Gun owners lampooned President Obama as Elmer Fudd yesterday after the White House released a photo of the commander-in-chief shooting clay targets at Camp David.
While the president’s shooting skills were being mocked, his own gun-control allies privately fretted that Obama risked being ridiculed as a phony for suddenly trying to portray himself as a friend of sportsmen and hunters. Or, conversely, that he was glorifying the use of guns.
But if the move was aimed to win over gun enthusiasts, it backfired.
“That looks pretty pathetic. That’s not skeet shooting,” chuckled Rick Davenport, of the Erie County Sportsmen’s Federation. “In skeet shooting, you’re either shooting high or you’re shooting low! This is nothing but pandering to the sportsmen and hunters.”
So, on January 27th, Obama was quoted in a magazine article, saying, “Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.” On January 28th, WH Press Secretary Jay Carney claimed he never saw a photo of Obama “doing skeet.” Then, on Saturday, the White House tweeted the above photo, which was allegedly taken on the president’s birthday. August 4, 2012.
Wow, what a co-inky-dink…
The local “journalists” are lauding the turnout of a Trenton gun buy back program. The program was necessary . . . for the children.
The Trenton gun buyback surpassed one in Camden in December that netted more than 1,100 weapons. Mercer County residents received $25 to $250 for each firearm depending on type, condition and legality.
About $100,000 was budgeted but because of the huge turnout, the amount spent is expected to be well over double that. Some participants were given vouchers after money ran out Saturday.
Let me break this article down for you, shotgun style. When Philadelphia unleashes one of these programs, detectives – such as myself – are given the responsibility of logging in the guns and checking their status (owner, whether it was reported stolen, etc.). After doing this a few times a year for almost eight years, I can tell you with surety that nearly 80-85% of these weapons are rusted hulks like the pistol shown above . . .
Barack Obama is preparing 19 executive orders to enact sweeping gun control, according to a Politico story. Buh-bye, Second Amendment.
The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips.
The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation.
He’s not my president.
As Sebastian explains, this is not an end-run around Congress. It does, however, set a disturbing precedent. While gun-control advocates and liberals – but I repeat myself – will cheer Obama’s actions, one wonders if they will cheer executive orders from a future GOP president? My guess is no.
With most gun buy back programs, citizens can turn in old or unwanted guns to the police in exchange for some reward; like $5 off your next meal at Stuckey’s. Most of the time, the guns received are rusted pieces of junk.
Other times . . .
A woman in Hartford, Conn., turned in an old rifle to her local police station’s gun buy-back, only to discover the gun was worth anywhere from $20,000 to $25,000. The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, inherited the gun from her father who had brought it home with him from Europe as a memento from World War II.
The two officers conducting the gun buy-back, gun experts for the Hartford Police Department, informed the owner she was in possession of a Nazi Assault Rifle, the first of its kind, that dates back to 1944.
The gun is called a Sturmgewehr 44, literally meaning “storm rifle,” and is the first “modern assault rifle ever made.
I’ll give her $50 for the gun right now. Okay, $75, but that’s my final offer.
