WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday wearily lamented “yet another mass shooting,” this time in the nation’s capital where the debate that raged earlier this year over tightening firearms laws has stalled amid opposition from gun-rights advocates.

Without the Second Amendment, there is no First Amendment. Think about that…

The shooting at the Washington Navy Yard came a week after voters recalled two Colorado legislators who supported tougher gun measures, illustrating the strong political headwinds faced by lawmakers seeking to respond to the violence.

Obama, for one, has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency.

Sources: Navy Yard Shooter Was ‘Hearing Voices,’ Had Mental Illness

In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the president is implementing executive actions and reiterated his commitment to strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows.

“The president supports, as do an overwhelming majority of Americans, common-sense measures to reduce gun violence,” Carney said.

Even as it was unfolding, the Washington shooting was reigniting talk about guns. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a leading advocate of gun control legislation, mourned “the litany of massacres” the country has suffered in the form of mass shootings.

“When will enough be enough?” Feinstein asked. “Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”

But it was far from certain whether the shooting would actually influence the larger debate over gun control vs. gun rights, given that the already difficult politics of the issue have gotten only tougher since December’s shooting at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School. That shooting, which killed 20 first-graders and six staffers, spurred Obama to propose stricter firearms laws to prevent future deaths.

Gun owners, aided by their advocates at the National Rifle Association, have successfully fought Obama’s legislation, even though polls show broad support for tougher gun laws. source – CBS

  • Infowarrior

    Exactly what I said yesterday! Another FALSE FLAG event to try and take our guns.

    • He is just putting more efforts on Backgrownd checks. It makes sense for me. Do you have an Idea of how many weapons we have out there “on the books only?” 300,000,000.three- hundred Millions) We have more weapons than people.

  • The Navy ship yard is just another False-Flag event. How could this guy, get a weapon pass secuity’

  • Stacey

    I know from living at Ft Bragg, you can’t. If your a guest they will check everything on you and what’s in your car. So my opinion…..False Flag!! Eveb if we took away guns, killers will still kill. Why don’t anyone will realize that?

    • @Stacey,
      I think that most people agree that taking away guns from normal people is NOT right, NOT the solution and will NOT happen. The evil who want to kill will be able to obtain a gun regardless of gun laws.
      In addition, millions of gun owners have stock-piled ammo, so if the government starts trying to confiscate
      guns there will be a lot more deaths. Who knows, maybe that’s what they want.
      Support the National Rifle Assn., or some other legitimate gun rights assn.

    • Hi when hsbnd in AF it was almost impossible to get on base w/o proper ID, one time we were going to get me renewed , I had lost mine identification in a move. I almost couldn’t get to the place to get a new one! Blessings to you in the Lord

  • Let’s face it people.He was a patsy set up by Holder and Reid,but he wasn’t supposed to be killed.at least as he was told.

  • You might as well quit talking about gun confiscation.It is coming and unless you are willing to die,you better be ready to turn them in.Even shot guns as this killer used one.

  • Get the population disarmed and then comes revolution..1917 Russian style!!And it wasn’t Russians who pulled it off.


    • During his time teaching at the University of Chicago, Obama toldthen-colleague John Lott directly: “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”

    • As a candidate for the Illinois State Senate in 1996, Obamapromised to support a ban on “the manufacture, sale & possession of handguns.”

    • In 1998 Obama supported a ban on the sale of all semi-automatic guns.

    • While running for the U.S. Senate in 2004, Obama spoke in favor of federal legislation to block citizens nationwide from receiving concealed-carry permits. “National legislation will prevent other states’ flawed concealed-weapons laws from threatening the safety of Illinois residents,” he said.

    • That same year (2004), Obama spoke in favor of banning gun sales within five miles of a school or park, which would have effectively shut down almost all gun stores.

    • Senator Obama supported Washington, DC’s comprehensive gun ban, which prevented district residents from possessing handguns even in their own homes; required that long guns be kept locked and disassembled; and lacked a provision allowing the guns to be reassembled in the event of an emergency.



    Obama Condemned Warrantless Wiretaps of Terror Suspects

    • Denouncing the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretaps of terror suspects, candidate Obama said in 2007: “This administration acts like violating civil liberties is the way to enhance our security. It is not.”

    Obama Accused the Bush Administration of Trampling on the Constitution

    • “I taught constitutional law for ten years at the University of Chicago,” said candidate Obama in 2008. “… Your next president will actually believe in the Constitution, which you can’t say about your current president.”

    Senator Obama Denounced the Troop Surge That Ultimately Turned the Tide of the Iraq War

    • In January 2007—three weeks after President Bush announced that he would deploy an extra 20,000 troops to Iraq in a “surge” strategy designed to crush the enemy with overwhelming force—then-Senator Obama derided the surge in unequivocal terms. “I don’t know any expert on the region or any military officer that I’ve spoken to privately that believes that that is going to make a substantial difference on the situation on the ground,” he said prior to its implementation. Soon after the surge had been initiated, Obama declared prematurely: “Here’s what we know. The surge has not worked.”
    • The surge proved to be a spectacular success and enabled the U.S. to win the war in Iraq.

    New Limits on Interrogating Terrorists

    • Two days after his inauguration, President Obama issued an executive order requiring all U.S. agents who interrogate high-value detainees to abide by the guidelines set forth in the Army Field Manual (AMF), whose limits on interrogation practices are much stricter than those traditionally followed by the CIA. For example, the AMFprohibits interrogators from subjecting detainees to “excessive noise,” “excessive dampness,” or “excessive or inadequate heat, light or ventilation”; it bans any sleep deprivation that does not permit a detainee at least four hours of sleep per night; it states that “all prisoners and detainees, regardless of status, will be treated humanely”; and it forbids interrogators from taunting detainees by such means as mocking those passages of the Koran that serve as the basis for the jihadists’ fanatical beliefs.

    “Man-Caused Disasters,” Not “Terrorism”

    • In March 2009, Obama’s Department of Homeland Security broke with its traditional practice of warning the American public about potential “terrorist” threats, and instead began referring to acts of terrorism as “man-caused disasters.”

    Miranda Warnings for Suspected Terrorists

    • In June 2009 the Obama Justice Department, demonstrating its preference to treat terrorism as a law-enforcement issue rather than as a military matter, ordered the FBI to give Miranda warnings to enemy combatants captured at war in Afghanistan.

    He’s falling all over himself handing weapons out to violent groups in other countries. But he feels Americans should be weaponless, defenseless. The bill to withhold weapons from those with’mental’histories and criminals, did not pass thru Congress. Research shows that the majority of Americans feel the same way about restrictions such as those. We cant be held responsible for the political arm wrestling that goes on in Congress. If we had any control, Obamacare would be at the sewer plant right now.

  • shelly

    Thank you Raymond, excellent information. We are in debt to for your service to the Nation.

  • What a jackass, he is. Dis-arming the public was Hitler’s first step.

    What he should be doing is LETTING AMERICAN SOLDIERS BE ARMED!!! Clinton dis-armed the military
    and that’s why Ft. Hood and yesterday occurred.

    If soldiers had guns, this sad lunatic would have been stopped immediately. He would NEVER have been able to kill 12 people. Never.

    The blood is on the liberal, unbalanced Left. More blood on Hillary’s hands . . . Bill’s hands and Obama’s. They are
    a disgrace.

  • “A Letter from Satan to all Human Being on this Earth…


    I wanted to take the time to finally introduce myself to you seeing as though you’ve been serving me for so long now. Since it’s the end and my time is almost up, I figured I’d let you know just a few of the many ways I’ve been systematically destroying your life and the lives of the ones you love all this time. Let’s face it, you still won’t believe even after you read this so I figured, why not? I have to do what I can these days for kicks. Your ignorance is so entertaining. So many people are coming to Hell with me because of it and it’s marvelous. You didn’t think I was going down without taking as many people as possible with me, did you?

    Anyway, do you know what my greatest weapon is? It’s making you believe I don’t exist. Would you like to know how I do it? Well for starters, I parade reality right in front of your face and make you believe it’s all fantasy. So many of you don’t even believe demons are real or that they’re everywhere so I make you believe they’re a figment of your imagination. So many of you take your hard earned money and actually pay to come and see us in horror movies, you think its fake. It’s thrilling huh? You love the thrill of being frightened by us but you have no idea you are actually paying to see the entities that are working to destroy your souls right now, the ones who are waiting to escort you when your soul drops into Hell.

    Oh, and for the record don’t even think for a second I use only horror movies. I have totally infiltrated your music and television also. Just look at the things that are popular nowadays! Many celebrities are sold out to me. Many of them blatantly tell you of their allegiance to me but like I said, you don’t listen, or care for that matter, because you’re blind. I promise them everything in exchange for them to completely promote my agenda. Which is to destroy. In all, fairness which is rare for me, some of them are deceived; they don’t fully realize what they’re doing. See, I use them to promote sex, scandals, fornication, and a falsely fabulous lifestyle, all in the name of “entertainment”!

    I create the illusion that they have it all so you’ll follow them and thirst after what they have. See, only God can truly fulfill you, but you don’t need to know that. So I lie to you and tell you if you only have __ you will be happy, and when it’s still not enough I suggest all you need is __. The cycle continues… I keep you on this never ending hamster wheel until your time runs >>>>>> out! By the time people realize it was all a lie it’s too late, you should see their faces!

    See, I work in the mind, in deception. Don’t worry, I hate the celebrities too, and once they fulfill my purpose for them, I kill them off, especially before they have the chance to call out to God for help. That’s why so many of them are found dead of overdoses and unknown causes in their hotel rooms, they have it all right? At least you think so, and that’s all that matters. You would be surprised how many lives you can destroy when you take someone’s idols away. I love to kill two birds with one stone. I love that I have given you new God’s to serve, including me. Anything to keep you from seeking the real thing. Humans idolize money, each other, cars, THEMSELVES! Don’t deny it. You wait hungrily to catch the latest gossips. You can hardly contain yourself. See, I designed it that way. I’ve been around since the beginning, I know exactly what caters to your fallen nature.

    You love the scandals, you live and DIE by these deceptions, you love it! YET you completely ignore your Maker and what he told you He wants, what pleases Him. Actually, wait… I’m being a little unfair. You don’t completely ignore Him. Sometimes you MIGHT say a little blessing over your food. Sometimes you MIGHT say a little prayer of thanks when something’s going your way, or going wrong or to run down your laundry list of things you want like he’s just some kind of Genie. This is all fine with me because what Jesus really wants is a relationship with you and for you to come to him for forgiveness, and love and obey Him. Giving Him the scraps of your life isn’t what He wants or deserves, nor will it bring you a relationship with Him so, keep it up! I just want you to think it is working. J

    Do you know what the best part of all of this is? You even pass it all down to your children. See, unfortunately God is fair and gave you suckers the free will to choose. Everything WE do to you is based on spiritual laws. Permission and doorways have to be opened to us for us to operate. Why do you think the world is getting worse and worse by the minute? You are opening major spiritual doors that invite us in. You think it’s innocent to let your children watch movies about violence and sex, play with Ouija boards, stay out and party. You think it’s normal that most children know more about Harry Potter, Spongebob and Beyonce then they know about Jesus Christ. Who said that was okay? Didn’t your God say woe to those who call evil good and good evil? Wait, that’s right, no one is listening to the God of the Bible anymore, I created a counterfeit for you that would be fine with all of this. The popular and false one of today is a sucker and a softie who’s not disgraced by any of this at all.

    I specialize in destroying the family dynamic too. I separate the fathers out of the picture by keeping them working so they have no time to spend with their children, or worse I promote them to operate against Gods order, as the tail of the family! I tempt men to ignore their wives, or wives to ignore their husbands! I turn families against each other with lies, jealousy, and deception, and the whole time you think its you. I am currently promoting a new type of family where little kids have 2 mommies and 2 daddies. You really don’t know how much control we have. When you are not surrendered to Jesus your fair game for us-and you don’t even know it. People are constantly pumping poison into their homes and don’t care, and then they wonder why little Jimmy or little Mary fly off the handle and kill all of their class mates or themselves! You open the doors for my demons to operate in THEIR lives. THIS is what you do with the free will God gave you. It’s fantastic. By-the-way, I make sure to promote mental illness as an excuse, but it’s really us.

    I have systematically set the world up for failure. I’m the one that created racial division. It was me! I knew I could destroy many people by making them feel superior to others based on their skin color. I gave superiority complexes to Humans so that people would consider themselves to be BETTER than one another. Do you know how many people I have destroyed through all of this? MANY, and it’s still working today, like a charm. People will KILL believing they are racially superior. They only way to escape me is Jesus, and I keep you distracted with everything else so you will never know him and make the people who try to warn you look crazy so you turn away and MOST people will refuse Him.

    Now for my favorite part of all. Christians! Or the so called! I have worked tirelessly to destroy them, but they’re doing a great job of destroying themselves now! Where are these ‘Christians’ we speak of? Many ‘professing Christians’ walk, talk, and live JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD! YOU CAN’T EVEN TELL THE DIFFERENCE! These people actually think they’re saved when the Bible clearly teaches different! The bible teaches if you do not have Jesus’ spirit you are not even saved! The bible tells them how they can know if they have His Spirit at all. The bible instructs people to test themselves and see if they are even indeed saved!!! There is a new breed of Christianity out now that’s foreign to the bible. I created it because I love to twist scripture . I tell you once you are saved you are always saved, just do what you want to do! God loves you! I LOVE to twist the scripture of the sheep that will never be taken from Jesus’ hands! People didn’t read the parts that say if you love Him you will abide in Him, hate sin, and thus be able to know you are truly saved and are one of those sheep! I tell people, “He said if you just believe in Him you will have everlasting life”. Yes! Yes! That’s it! People stopped reading there and shut the book!

    Jesus gave many instructions after that and warnings about FEW people entering heaven. He said that the road was narrow. He said you have to deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Him. Well, I thought I’d make the narrow road a bit broader nowadays to make you more comfortable haha! I certainly don’t want anyone to surrender their lives to HIM, they’ll be unstoppable! I’m so glad most people won’t anyway; the bible say’s it’s the hard way. Many people don’t obey Him, consult with Him, or even submit to Him to know the purpose He has for their lives. Don’t feel bad, many ‘Christians’ wouldn’t know all of this because they don’t read the bible or even communicate with God like they actually believe He is real, and worthy of their respect. Just superficially. They’ll be really surprised at the end! I hope I can keep most of them fooled that long. The bible warned of the things to come, so that people could be warned and helped but many ‘Christians’ refuse to acknowledge what’s in the bible as if HE made a mistake in putting the information in there! They think what they don’t know won’t hurt them. YES! Please keep believing that! Jesus desired for His followers to be One, a family and you just know I can’t let that happen! I play on your insecurities and weaknesses to keep you in bondage and away from loving each other which is one of the greatest commandments! Many churches are fashion shows and teaching doctrines of demons. That’s a warning in the bible too. Sigh, this is just too easy…

    My time is almost up and you better believe things are going to get much worse for you all! I work day and night with my army, to destroy. I never sleep. God is raising up many people in these last days to come against me and tell people the truth. TRUE FOLLOWERS OF THAT CHRIST. People are waking up and truly turning to Him! People are returning from Heaven and Hell and warning people. People are hearing from Him and receiving visits! People are SEEKING for HIM DAILY! I will stop at nothing to fool you, even with writing this letter. See it seems to be working pretty well for me to parade the truth in front of people. They don’t believe it anyway. I’m sure that will be the case with you also.

    By Satan

    Note: A must read by every Christian even though we do not know exactly the name of the person who wrote this message while you may freely think whether this is a good letter to remind us to always live in God’s Plan and Will or you have a free will to ignore it.”

    • that’s awesome!!! Have a great eve w the Lord good to see you 🙂

      • Thanks, I thought it had bearing!!! 🙂

    • Thanks, great post.This reminds me a little bit of the The protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.


    • Good letter! I wish I can recieve a copy on my e-mail: dsoler51@aol.com or on my facebook timeline: Carlos Soler. I would love to pass the same to family and friends.

      • @Carlos, Just copy it, and then Paste it to your own email!! I think that will work. Or copy it and send it to yourself. 🙂

  • Oh Please, Obama!!! Nobody bitched at you for having your cronies over for a muslim banquet at the white house September 11th so why are you so pissy about one of your bros taking a bullet after taking the lives of thirteen people. You have plenty of other things to finish up like the Bengazi investigation, etc. You are making a whole lot of Americans angry, Obama!

  • Thanks for posting Suez. So much truth in the Letter from Satan. Most people are so “busy” that families can’t even be families anymore. The break-down of the home is certainly one of Satan’s greatest tools. So sad!

    • Tracy, your quite welcome. Yes, the family is a BIG target!! 🙁

  • We got all kinds of mountain breaks in these hills, if you can find them all, you can have my guns.

    • funny you mention that, when I lived in Mo I always thought someone could kill you, dump you in the Trees and never be found. So unlike out here! Nice to see you Blessings in the Lord to you and B

  • It seems that almost all of the input on these comments consist of the same few people carrying on personal conversations that would be better if you did it via your personal emails. I for one am tired of reading them.
    I like the news reports but from now on the comments will NOT be in my interests nor will I contribute.

  • A little humor for a time of heaviness!!! Enjoy the chuckles!! http://youtu.be/bROPwoTXtT4 Fishing Bloopers!! Just because we need to laugh!!!

    • thanks that was funny, he must like the water! sorta reminds me of one of my fav Movies, Grumpier Old Men. Thanks for sharing, 🙂

  • Teresa B: two things: The Navy Yard: Why was this guy hired by the Navy with Psychogical Behavior Problems and why did they not search him enter a security area?


    • Hi like the others, all on drugs, some sort of Govt clearance, there are patterns. I think that’s the pt is he should not have been hired but they watched him and knew he would do their False Flag? I have no clue, just guessing, because of the similarities. Also there is always a Drill before or scheduled it seems. good night, Blessings to you and yours

      • @Teresa,,,hey T. I can’t get a email to go through to you…:-(

  • I guess you people don’t listen to the news. The shooter at the Navy Yard was there legitimately, with his ID card. He was hired as an IT Tech subcontractor, by a company working for the Navy. He went through a background check. Nothing came up that set off any alarms. Obama had passed a law when he first became pres., that the EEOC demanded. He, and they, said it was “racist” NOT to hire someone who had been arrested but NOT convicted of the charges, because mainly Black people get arrested like that. So, this man got the job! Nobody knows how he got the gun in, but it does break down into three parts, and he did start his rampage at the second gate. Your speculation is almost laughable, when all the news stations have been obsessed with this story all day! But your speculation seems to be real in some of your minds! That’s how the “False-Flag” KRAP comes up! Twelve innocent people are dead! Grow a heart and stop the moronic conspiracy theories! There are twelve families grieving. They could use our prayers!
    As for the gun grab: the one phrase in this entire post that should send shivers down all spines is “Obama is considering an executive order…” He has already had Homeland Security buy up so much ammunition that my oldest son, a Sheriff’s Deputy, can’t find the proper ammunition for his work rifles! He’s buying it to turn it on us if we ever get it together and revolt against his dictatorship! That’s the ONLY reason he wants to confiscate our guns – he thinks he can take over if we are unarmed. He has another think coming! If God be for us, who can be against us?

    • I guess they did not do a good background check.
      So let me see if I get what you wrote..black people get arrested because of “racism” basically.

    • @Judy,
      At this time, no one knows for sure just exactly what happened, other than thirteen-fourteen people are dead. And you’re right that is the worst part of this story. However, on the other hand, we, the people, have been lied to so much over the past fifty + years by our news media, politicians, others in control, etc., why wouldn’t some people think this could be just another “False-Flag”? Our liberal government is doing everything they can to try and confiscate our guns. So, it’s NOT beyond them to try and pull-off some type of mass shooting. Not saying they DID, just saying they COULD.
      I can count on my hands the ones that I trust in D.C.
      Sad, but true.

  • Did anyone catch the news report -I think it was CNN (not that I swallow everything they say) but some bigwig was saying ” we had several 911 calls from SEVERAL buildings at the same time so we needed to know which building he was in” so unless he was Superman how could he had gotten from building to building (which I assume EACH had a security entrance) gotten up several flights on each etc. Seems to me they would have done a lockdown as soon as the first shots were fired in the first building. And we are talking military here why didnt they tackle him -thats what they are trained to do. I’m thinking there was more than one and that he was the fall guy. as in “we’ll pay you to be the one everyone goes after” and with so many in uniform how would people know where the shots were coming from ???

    • There were more than two shooters at Columbine.

    • If a six-foot man was randomly shooting a rifle in your office, would you tackle him? You’re expect super-human responses from humans! Even though they are military people, they are still normal! Bullets kill them, too! And did! You heard the first, confused reports, and are still believing them. First reports are NEVER accurate! Later in the day, a reporter on the White House lawn said a man fired shots into the WH. It turned out they were firecrackers! You have to keep on listening to get the truth. The shooter in the Navy Yard was in ONE building, all the dead were in ONE building. NOBODY paid him, or conned him, into doing it! These conspiracy theories have rotted enough brains! Don’t let them rot your’s, too!

      • Jody I am sure you believe the official 9-11 fable.

        “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” – quote attributed to Karl Rove

  • All this concern over the killer’s background check puzzles me.What if he had his records sealed after he got in trouble? Would he have been forced to open them when getting a security clearance? I had to pass them in the military to do my job.Now let’s see if there are any known Marxist associates in our government? That’s a bad thought I guess I must be a racist.

  • As you can see I am on a diff route today, join in or not, have a great day!! 🙂


  • Holder Says People Need to be Brainwashed

  • Teresa B: I sent the $ 32,500.00 to the Realtor’s to buy the property thru wire transfer, she said, she’ll send the paper for me to signed and mail back to her.

    VA just deposited into my saving account my back pay of $ 738, 467.00 dollars. So I’m done fighting VA now!

    • STL. Way to go!!! Pray and use it wisely brother. I am happy for you! Praise The Lord!

        Then I’ll need to rent out my Mazatlan 4 bedroom house, then I have 3 other houses here that I rent.

        I guess I can afford new tires for my truck?
