Following the school massacre in Newtown, CN, Joe Biden, chosen by Barack Obama to lead the administration’s effort to stem the gun ‘epidemic’, met with “law enforcement leaders.”
Biden met with Attorney General Eric Holder, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Obama’s drug czar Gil Kerlikowske, Senior Obama advisers Bruce Reed, Valerie Jarrett, Cecilia Munoz and Kathy Ruemmler also attended.
“I’ve worked with some of you for a long, long time. We’ve worked on everything from cop-killer bullets to types of weapons that should be off the street. That’s what I want to talk to you about today. I want to hear your views, because for anything to get done we’re going to need your advocacy.”
While openly hoping to impose an assault weapons ban, the White House is actively seeking “advocacy” from Holder, Napolitano, Sebelius and Jarrett.
Holder has yet to adequately explain the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, Napolitano has accused Veterans of foreign wars of being national security threats and has yet to secure American borders, Sebelius is actively assailing American liberty through obamacare and Jarrett has never explained her ties to real estate scandals involving convicted felon and Obama fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko or her involvement in recruiting self-identified communist Van Jones as green jobs czar, Saul Alinsky devotee Mark Lloyd as chief diversity officer within the FCC, and wealth redistribution advocate Cass Sunstein as regulatory czar.
Meanwhile Obama was pushing Congress to quickly pass gun control measures, saying:
“A majority of Americans support banning the sale of military-style assault weapons. A majority of Americans support banning the sale of high-capacity ammunition clips. A majority of Americans support laws requiring background checks before all gun purchases, so that criminals can’t take advantage of legal loopholes to buy a gun from somebody who won’t take the responsibility of doing a background check at all. I urge the new Congress to hold votes on these measures next year in a timely manner.”
On Sunday’s “Meet The Press,” National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre reiterated his statements made Friday at a Washington DC press conference, when he said armed security in every school is the answer to stopping shootings like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
“If it’s crazy to call for putting police in and securing our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy. I think the American people think it’s crazy not to do it.”
At Friday’s press conference LaPierre made the statement:
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
The United States will descend into bickering between Americans and “progressives” over how to prevent mass murders committed in gun free zones by mentally deranged people acting on their own. “Progressives” seek to do this by depriving law abiding individuals of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Americans seek to ensure safety by having armed, right minded, principled individuals capable of ending the violence present and acting before it spirals out of control.
This debate overlooks the point of the Second Amendment:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
When the Constitution was written, “Militia” meant ordinary citizens capable of banding together to fight threats to their liberty. It did not matter whether the treat was from an external source like an invading army, or internal, such as an over-reaching government.
The framers of the Constitution clearly expressed their views regarding a well-armed citizenry.
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
“Force is the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism.”
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”
“It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it.”
“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
“A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained in arms, is the best most natural defense of a free country.”
“progressives” seek to totally ignore the second part of the Second Amendment “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed“. This displays their willful ignorance of history. Anyone who has studied history knows the first right tyrants abolish is the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
That the likes of Holder, Napolitano, Sebelius, Jarrett et al, who no longer secretly seek to impose their version of tyranny upon the United States, are now openly insisting that the Second Amendment be revised to suit their fancy should trigger the sound of alarm bells in the mind of every freedom loving American Citizen.
IT was staged buy the goverment to take our guns so we would not have anyway to defend ourselfs when they try to starve us to death
Tyrants starve people to death? Like that will ever happen. (sarcasm off)
Nice work, Michael. Do you by chance, know why Holder went to Newtown immediately leaving ‘Biden’s little meeting? Found it curious….
“Militia” still means the same thing as it did when inserted in OUR beloved Constitution….& is a destinct possibility..This ‘progressive’ administration knows it!!…This is ‘their’ fear. Banning of assualt weaponary or any other arms will NOT work..CONFISCATION will be next. (of course that won’t work either)….The road to tyranny starts by fillling the mind with ‘fear’ until it overpowers & bars ‘defensive’ thought & self-will. “Capture the mind, Capture the soul”. ..or..as a FREE MAN you can prepare & plan your defense against what you fear…
Valarie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Michaelle Obama are ‘Handles” or the Godfather’s lieutenents & yes, they are dangerous..but not nearly as dangerous as a man walking through tall grass with a big loaded stick looking for snakes.
“There is nothing to fear…but fear itself”. Knowing your enemy is the first step in over powering them.
If a tyrannical government tries to sieze guns from the citizenry there will be fighting.
For the first time in my life I am afraid of my government. No, truly afraid. Not for my life but for the future of the country and of mankind. I am, therefore, resigned that I shall die in the fight for freedom!! That is my conviction.
I have NEVER liked that quote; “We have nothing to fear, but fear itself.” (I am NOT a Roosevelt fan). Fear is an instrument of Natural Law. When fear comes on that is when the “Right to Attempt to Survive” is initiate (the only true right any being of this planet is entitled to – Man’s invented rights under God and under Civiltude asside.) When that happens the Determined become very, very dangerous…
To quote another figure of history when the enemy demanded their weapons; “Come and get them!”
My personal favorite is from Charlton Heston:
I notice that this website rights articles about hypocrisy and is unafraid to discuss apparent truths. now I ask, where is the article as to why most of these mass murderers are White males? Why do these men seem to hold traditionally conservative ideas, Tucson shooter and OKC bomber? I am sure if these men were “colored” and democratic leaning an article would be written, why not about this?
Could it be, Jean, that the majority in this country are “white,” or that the MSM fails to report/ignore other mass murders, such as those being carried out daily in Chicago. Is the MSM hypocritical? Besides, the CDN articles focused upon the selective hypocrisy of gun-control advocates and the (very ineffective) laws they advocate.
Hi! This post could not be written any better!
Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him.
Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks
