Man Surrounded By Lots Of Armed Security Says Gun Are Our Shared Responsibility

Obviously, after Obama’s little town hall thing on CNN, where Obama told a rape survivor that owning a gun could lead to a tragic accident….say, doesn’t that mean that Obama is in a lot of danger from all the guns surrounding him?…, there will be lots of opinion pieces from the Compliant Media. The NY Times gets the prize, as they publish one written with the byline Barack Obama

Barack Obama: Guns Are Our Shared Responsibility

THE epidemic of gun violence in our country is a crisis. Gun deaths and injuries constitute one of the greatest threats to public health and to the safety of the American people. Every year, more than 30,000 Americans have their lives cut short by guns. Suicides. Domestic violence. Gang shootouts. Accidents. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost brothers and sisters, or buried their own children. We’re the only advanced nation on earth that sees this kind of mass violence with this frequency.

He forgets that 20,000 are suicides, and a goodly chunk of the rest are from people who posses guns illegally, mostly in Democratic Party run areas, some with massive gun restrictions, like Chicago, Baltimore, and California. And gun free zones. Let’s not forget about those

A national crisis like this demands a national response. Reducing gun violence will be hard. It’s clear that common-sense gun reform won’t happen during this Congress. It won’t happen during my presidency. Still, there are steps we can take now to save lives. And all of us — at every level of government, in the private sector and as citizens — have to do our part.

I did. I bought a gun back in 2008, after the election. Anyhow, if “our part” means new gun restrictions on law abiding citizens, well, perhaps he can explain how that’s worked in Chicago? Perhaps he can explain why “gun violence” is so prevalent within Black communities as administered by the Democratic Party?

As Americans, we hold consumer goods to high standards to keep our families and communities safe. Cars have to meet safety and emissions requirements. Food has to be clean and safe. We will not end the cycle of gun violence until we demand that the gun industry take simple actions to make its products safer as well. If a child can’t open a bottle of aspirin, we should also make sure she can’t pull the trigger of a gun.

What’s that joke, based on reality, about kids being able to open what adults can’t? The only thing I can figure is that he wants “smart guns”. They make a few. If guns are so dangerous, the US Secret Service should be armed only with smart guns.

Yet today, the gun industry is almost entirely unaccountable. Thanks to the gun lobby’s decades of efforts, Congress has blocked our consumer products safety experts from being able to require that firearms have even the most basic safety measures. They’ve made it harder for the government’s public health experts to conduct research on gun violence. They’ve guaranteed that manufacturers enjoy virtual immunity from lawsuits, which means that they can sell lethal products and rarely face consequences. As parents, we wouldn’t put up with this if we were talking about faulty car seats. Why should we tolerate it for products — guns — that kill so many children each year?

A nice little strawman. A gun that fires is not faulty, unless it is going off with the safety or a trigger lock engaged. We don’t sue a car manufacturer if someone is killed by a drunk driver. We don’t sue makers of hammers and other “blunt weapons” when they kill someone. Or knife manufacturers. They aren’t faulty. The car seat referenced is.

All of us need to demand leaders brave enough to stand up to the gun lobby’s lies. All of us need to stand up and protect our fellow citizens. All of us need to demand that governors, mayors and our representatives in Congress do their part.

The majority of us approve of the “gun lobby”. Obama must, since he is surrounded by armed security. The citizens are the gun lobby. No one should be surprised in the least that Obama goes down Divisive Road in pitting citizen against citizen while Blamestorming the “gun lobby”. For a guy who was supposedly going to bring the country together, he sure loves to divide us.

Those moments represent American democracy, and the American people, at our best. Meeting this crisis of gun violence will require the same relentless focus, over many years, at every level. If we can meet this moment with that same audacity, we will achieve the change we seek. And we will leave a stronger, safer country to our children.

You know where it’s really safe? Where Obama has his home in Hyde Park, a section of Chicago, where crime is really, really low, and the University of Chicago Police Department patrols. They carry guns, there are lots of them, and they make sure undesirable elements stay out.

When will Obama hold a townhall on the threat from Islamist violence?

Given that the left are very concerned that people who want to kill themselves have access to physician assisted suicide, why would they cite suicides as a reason to restrict firearms? California recently passed an assisted suicide law, yet the Pyrite State also cites the need for more gun control to prevent, among other things, suicide.

Dana,

Back at ya. Conservatives oppose a few old folks with agonizingly painful and hopelessly terminal diseases dying with dignity but loudly support 20,000 temporarily depressed folks (young and old) shooting themselves in the head.

I think it is time to reconsider gun protection. Namely I am referring to the armies of men, highly armed, that surround politicians and those that consider themselves VIPS. Before any rules, regulation or laws are instituted against the commonly low lifes that we are, then we should first disarm the elite. This would result in a significant savings to our country. Consider the massive amount of money spent on moving someone like Obama from one point to another. Getting rid of his protection would save money. Plus, exactly when did we decide that the POS should have extra benefits, delaying traffic and snarling airports. Why? His business is no more important than mine, in fact, my business and activity is far more important than his. Lets take this time to begin the process of elimination of security for those that think they are above us.

dave,

No one is preventing you from having armed guards. In fact, if your employer thought you were worth the effort and money, they’d keep you guarded too. You see, that’s what the protection of the first families amounts to – the nature of the job is dangerous – and the impact on the world of an assassinated American President is great. (Greater than the effect of a dead semi-retired doctor, a dead scientist or a dead car salesman.)

Why does Donald Trump surround himself with henchmen? Why do CEOs have security details?

The American people have decided that it’s worth the effort and expense to keep our politicians safe. If you want to lead the charge in eliminating the secret service knock yourself out. The far, far right are anarchists at heart anyway. And we understand it’s every white supremacist’s wet dream to have Obama and his family gunned down in public by a decent patriot who is just taking his country back.

Let’s eliminate the police forces while we’re at it. And to really save money, let’s eliminate the defense budget so every American resident can afford their own RPGs, M-16s and 50 cal machine guns. That way we can keep the violent Negroes, Mexicans and Muslims at bay and shoot down the commies when they invade. Your taxes would go down some 50%!!

“it’s every white supremacist’s wet dream to have Obama and his family gunned down in public..”

You seem to know a lot about white supremacists Jeffery. Strange that.

Funny thing is, the ones you fantasize about seem to have a lot in common with main stream liberals.
For example, Alec Baldwin’s appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien on December 12, 1998, eight days before President Bill Clinton was to be impeached where Baldwin said, “If we were in another country … we would stone [sitting congressman] Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families, for what they’re doing to this country.”

Then again, maybe someone could make a movie about assassinating the President. Like the one currently available on Amazon, “Death of a President” that shows George W. Bush being assassinated.

There’s even the, get this, 1976 Nobel Prize winner Betty Williams stating: “Right now, I could kill George Bush,” she said at the Adam’s Mark Hotel and Conference Center in Dallas. “No, I don’t mean that. How could you nonviolently kill somebody? I would love to be able to do that.”
This would be the Betty Williams who is a cofounder of “Community of Peace People”.

The far right fringe pales in comparison with the “wet dreams” main stream liberals and progressives embrace.

I read things here, at StormFront and at the Gateway Pundit (StormFront lite).

Regarding the British movie, Death of a President, who cares? No one watched it. future President Hillary Clinton said, “I think it’s despicable. I think it’s absolutely outrageous. That anyone would even attempt to profit on such a horrible scenario makes me sick.” No one profited since it made much less than it cost.

And you found a couple of other quotes, all to defend white supremacists. Strange that.

It’s my understanding that dave is the only admitted white supremacist here; am I wrong?

Jeff,
Is it that you are just stupid, or dense or have some brain disorder? The point is that the POS is making it more difficult for people to have the protection that they deem is necessary. The poor people in the Democrat ghettos, the middle class individual that is afraid of home invasion, the list goes on. These people can’t afford security, they can afford a gun and self protection. Now, back ground checks that are more invasive than present, will disallow people from purchase. How? Well, you come to me and tell me you are depressed as your wife wants a divorce, information goes into the computer the government requires that I use, the Feds transfer this to your file (you have one) and bang, when you want that rifle to go deer hunting, it isn’t available. Or, you have a back problem and take a hand full of pain pills and bang, you are in the computer and you can’t get that gun you always wanted or ammunition. As I write this I am listening to Obama assure people on the news that he has no intention of taking your guns, same promise as you can keep your doctor and all the other lies.

Now, as to being a supremacist, yes, I consider myself superior to most people, most definitely you as you are of a lower intellect. Now, what is wrong with that. If some one is in the NFL and considers that they are stronger that the average individual, is that wrong??? Now, you don’t seem to understand the CSA and the history of the black man in our country. They had more freedom in the South. Look it up. Study the Black Codes of the North. Look at the real reasons for the Civil War as observed by the rest of the world, not the propaganda that you inhale. I also note that of all the people that comment here, you are the most racist, bigoted and prejudiced. You have white guilt and don’t understand that your condescending attitude to other races is deplorable. As a doctor, I am telling you that you need help, and also that you would not be able to purchase weapons under Obama’s rules.

Finally, who gives a flip if the death of one of our great politicians caused an increase in paper work around the world? They are not as necessary as you think nor as important as they think. And why would a communist like yourself not see that you are creating a superior social structure by thinking that these jerks are so special. Remember, under your way of thinking, all are comrades; right?

The little whiny bitch reads Stormfront for Chrissakes. That alone should tell you all you need to know.

Here’s something to think about while you’re sucking my schlong again: dave is an idiot, but he makes more sense than you.

I think we hurt the poor little things feels, it hurts when people tell you the sad truth about yourself. Hopefully, he will get the help he needs.

I paid you a compliment – suckingpuppies is dumber than you! You should be proud. Although you are just barely less literate than the puppysucker, giving you something to shoot for.

Jeff,
Wouldn’t you be more comfortable commenting at one of the adolescent sites? You could fit in well at KOS. Although you admit a relationship with Stormfront which seems to fit your political ideals and hate. You will learn that as you age, name calling and such mean very little. It also confirms my opinion of you. You need help.

More adolescent than here? Hardly. Why would I comment at a site where I agree with most that is written? Here I can count on effortlessly correcting William’s and the commenters’ misleading and dishonest posts and comments.

What makes you think I care about your opinion of me? A white supremacist hoping the confederacy secedes again thinks I need help? LOL
