Obama: America’s Founding Fathers Were Conspiracy Nuts

When the man starts to stutter it is the “tell” that he lying. This short clip sums up the whole miserable Town Hall. Meanwhile the world burns, but no need to discuss that.

If Obama wanted to assure people that he wasn’t a crazy idiot or a tyrant, he probably shouldn’t have smugly smirked about the American founding as an example of a “conspiracy theory” of Americans paranoid about a tyrannic government.

H/T:Right Scoop

Oh, and hey moron, just because you haven’t been able to do something in 7 years doesn’t mean you wouldn’t happily do it if it wasn’t for Americans preventing you from doing it. What a stupid stupid man.

Will taking an anxiety pill let Obama take your guns?

Strange isn’t it? I posted the intent to limit our guns the first time back exactly two years ago. Obama has never been shy at telegraphing what he has in mind regarding destroying our rights. In return, we as American voters have done our best to install a defense via the GOP. First the Tea Party develops, then we take the House, the Senate, and the moribund Grand Old Party does nothing but join the Democrats in our demise. Keep in mind, Obama said his “orders” would be coming out over the next couple of weeks. He is not done with us yet.

Recall New York takes guns away from 34,500 without due process
Here (2014).

But this little number may be starting us on the worst of it. Why did he take so long in moving forward? That is the question.

Obama to tighten Gun Control for those who ever took an anxiety pill? 

We saw this freight train coming now didn’t we? So now Eric Holder and the DOJ will comb our prescription plans which they will secure from the Insurance company no doubt, and put everyone on the watch list who ever took a medication for a non physical condition. You betcha. Which is estimated to be about 25 percent of the population.

The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,

The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.

…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.

Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.

Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.

They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.

The restrictions will try to limit who can buy a gun, based on past mental health issues. The new mental health restrictions, which are being enforced as regulations through the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, will allow the government to get around certain privacy laws so they can access your private medical records. It also allows them to yet again sidestep congress.

One of regulations allows the feds to access your private medical records to determine your “mental stability” in relation to owning a firearm. If you are found to be mentally unstable, the Justice Department can then deny your right to own a firearm.  But the problem really comes from who’s defining what “mentally unstable” actually means.

Sanders: ‘Call 911 if you see someone loading guns and ammo into a house’

Guess we know what we need Santa to put under the tree. We know those right wingers are the ones we need to keep our eye on. Last I heard the Constitution said guns and ammo were just fine bringing into the house.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says call 911 if you see anybody bringing guns and ammo into their residence.

That was Sanders’ response to ABC News debate moderator David Muir Saturday night, who asked him about the neighbors of the San Bernardino terrorists who suspected something was amiss about the would-be mass shooters but never reported them for fear of accusations of profiling.

“That’s kind of a no-brainer. If somebody is loading guns and ammunition into a house, I think it’s a good idea to call 911. Do it,” Sanders said.

Muir pressed, “But I’m asking about profiling, because a lot of people are afraid of that.”

Sanders wanted no more of that topic and decided to on.

Connecticut to ban gun sales to those on no-fly list

Looks like Governors are catching on to having a “phone and a pen.” What happened to due process? It has already been reported that many mistakes have been made with these lists with it almost impossible to get off one. Those permits already granted will be recinded with confiscation of one’s firearm apparently. Add this story  BREAKING: Obama to Sign Gun Control Executive Orders RedState

Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy proposed Thursday to use an executive order to ban gun sales to those on federal no-fly watch lists.
The Democratic governor said that his order would make Connecticut the first state to do so and that state officials are working with the federal government to get access to the lists.

State Police now perform background checks on those seeking permits to purchase guns in Connecticut. Pending federal approval, Malloy’s order will require State Police to cross-reference the names of those seeking firearm permits with government watch lists.

Permits would be revoked for those who already have them but are found on watch lists.
‘‘If you cannot fly due to being on a government watch list, you should not be able to purchase a firearm while on that watch list as well,’’ Malloy told reporters at the Capitol. ‘‘This is basic common sense. The American people get it.’’

Gun violence dropped significantly, gun ownership rises

Feel good story of the day. While the call for gun control drums are beating once again, this factoid gets buried in the equation. Lock and load. With this President, that is all we have or will have as the barbarians reach our shores.

The chart above was inspired by a similar one featured by in his recent Wonkblog post titled “We’ve had a massive decline in gun violence in the United States. Here’s why.” In contrast to the widely embraced narrative, perpetuated by liberal politicians and the media, that gun violence in America is getting worse all the time, the data reveal that the exact opposite is true. According to data retrieved from the Centers for Disease Control, there were 7 firearm-related homicides for every 100,000 Americans in 1993 (see light blue line in chart). By 2013 (most recent year available), the gun homicide rate had fallen by nearly 50% to only 3.6 homicides per 100,000 population.

But there’s another possible reason for the decline in gun violence overlooked by Ehrenfreund – the significant increase in gun ownership, illustrated above by the dark blue line in the chart. Based on data from a 2012 Congressional Research Service (CRS) report (and additional data from another Wonkblog article “There are now more guns than people in the United States“), the number of privately owned firearms in US increased from about185 million in 1993 to 357 million in 2013. Adjusted for the US population, the number of guns per American increased from 0.93 per person in 1993 to 1.45 in 2013, which is a 56% increase in gun ownership that occurred during the same period when gun violence decreased by 49%. Of course, that significant correlation doesn’t necessarily imply causation, but it’s logical to believe that those two trends are related. After all, armed citizens frequently prevent crimes from happening, including gun-related homicides, see hundreds of examples here of law-abiding gun owners defending themselves and their families and homes.

Obama considering reaching for that Pen on gun control

No sooner had I read that Hillary Clinton: “I am going to get those guns out of people’s hands” from over at America’s Watchtower – by Executive action by golly if required, well good ole Hussein said now isn’t that a swell idea, and started reaching for that Pen and Phone. Hint: Keep your eye on ammo. An easier route.

The White House is considering whether President Obama can take executive action to enforce stronger gun control measures, White House spokesman Joshua Earnest said on Monday.

“The president has frequently pushed his team to consider a range of executive actions that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have access to them,” Earnest said Monday. “That’s something that is ongoing here.”

Earnest was responding to questions from reporters following Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she would consider executive action to expand background checks on gun buyers by closing the so-called gun show loophole.

Clinton’s move marks the second time she has said she will consider going farther than the Obama administration by taking unilateral action on hot-button issues. She has already said that she would expand on Obama’s unilteral actions granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens if Congress fails to pass immigration reform.

Guns? So just what is it you are proposing?

This is a different kind of video for a Saturday. The left screeches that something has to be done about guns after the recent violence. This riff done over at MSNBC should bring a chuckle. When pressed on exactly what should be done, the wandering spin begins.

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke gently makes the same point by pressing Mark Halperin and then Mika Brzezinski to explain their policy ideas when both demand action. The result is the same in both cases — they fume, they growl about Congress, but they have no proposals of their own (via the Free Beacon and Jazz):
