Now that some Republicans caved in the pressure is getting pumped up in the gun control department.
It’s looking like universal background checks are coming but nothing is set in stone yet.
Harry Reid doesn’t have the votes he needs locked up quite yet.
You can be assured that some sneaky cocksucker is going to try and weasel through some kind of shit so I am hoping at the very least someone is watching like a hawk what is in the language of any fucking amendments they want to come up for a vote.
The Whitehhouse has been getting a lot of mileage out of the parents of those dead children from Sandy Hook.
Obama has even gone so far as to have one woman substitute for him in his weekly address.
Hello, everybody —
Each week, like many presidents before me, I sit down to record a short address to the nation. It’s something I take very seriously because it offers a chance to bring focus to an issue that needs to be part of the national dialogue.
But today, I’ve asked someone to take my place.
Francine Wheeler is a mother. She and her family live in Newtown, Connecticut. Four months ago, her six year-old son Ben was murdered in his elementary school, along with 19 other children and six brave educators.
Joined by her husband David, Francine shares her perspective about the steps we can take to reduce gun violence and prevent the kind of tragedy she understands all too well.
It’s a message that every American should hear:
Watch Francine, then join her in speaking out to make our country safer.
This week, because people like Francine and like you got involved, the U.S. Senate took a step forward on commonsense reforms to reduce gun violence.
And that’s good. Because this shouldn’t be about politics. This is about doing the right thing for families that have been torn apart by gun violence, and for all our families going forward.
But we’ve got a lot of work to do before Congress finishes the job.
So if you believe that we can take sensible steps to protect more of our kids from gun violence and protect our Second Amendment rights, stand up and join us.
Just visit WhiteHouse.gov to get started:
Politics at it finest.
Of course Obama is going to use these people to maximum advantage.
My heart goes out to them in their grief but I’m afraid they misunderstand that their proposals will do jack shit when it comes to gun crime.
By definition criminals ignore the law.
What is being proposed will only make more criminals, the opposite of their objective.
It has been proven beyond the shadow of doubt that even people who fail the background check are not prosecuted in any meaningful numbers.
It goes right back to what has been said about so many other laws and proposed legislation and it needs to be hammered right back in their faces repeatedly until someone finally fucking gets the message we are trying to send.
ENFORCE THE MOTHER FUCKING LAWS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS.
It’s like they think this is some kind of sick game of who can pass the most laws and who can pass the most restrictive laws when the ignorant cocksuckers won’t mandate that the laws they have already passed be enforced properly.
Look at how many laws that sick fucking bastard Adam Lanza broke before he even pulled into the parking lot at that school.
Didn’t make one fucking bit of difference did it?
Let’s pass some more fucking laws.
The police, the legislators and every criminal in this country knows they don’t even have the resources to enforce the laws we have now and these misguided idiots seem to think passing another bucket full is going to cure all their ills.
Instead of spending money hiring more law enforcement personnel they spend it on equipment militarizing the forces we have already.
Local podunk police departments who have assault vehicles and weapons to use while breaking down peoples doors and shooting their dogs but not enough bodies to even bother sending someone out to take a report on stolen property should tell you someones priorities are completely fucked up.
Let’s pass some more fucking laws.
The definition of insanity has been described as doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
I submit this country fits that definition.
