President Barack Obama wept openly Tuesday as he delivered a forceful defense of new executive actions on gun violence, a set of modest proposals to tighten loopholes that likely face quick legal challenges and could be vulnerable to reversal by a Republican White House.
“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.” Passed by Congress September 25, 1789. Ratified December 15, 1791. The first 10 amendments form the Bill of Rights
EDITOR’S NOTE: It is interesting to note that Adolf Hitler, at the early stages of his rabble rousing, took acting lessons to be able to produce the heart-tugging and soul-stirring emotions in his listeners that allowed him to be dictator over Germany. That’s exactly what went though my mind as I watched Obama working up his crocodile tears in a vain attempt to justify stealing the Second Amendment from the American people.
The president ran through a list of mass shootings that have happened during his time in office, and teared up as he recalled the schoolchildren gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012.
“First graders in Newtown. First graders,” Obama said, pausing to collect himself. “Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad. And by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago every day.”
Obama offered a new argument to counter gun rights enthusiasts, noting that mass shootings have taken place as Americans have tried to exercise other rights, such as attending worship services or watching a movie. The right to bear firearms is not more important than the right to worship freely or peaceably assemble, he said, and called upon Congress to be “brave enough to stand up to the gun lobby’s lies.”
Adolf Hitler learned how to cry on cue, too
A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE THAT ADOLF HITLER TOOK ACTING LESSONS, AND PRACTICED HIS WILD GESTURES AND MOTIONS WITH HIS PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHER SO HIS SPEECHES WOULD HAVE MAXIMUM EFFECT. I WONDER WHO OBAMA IS TAKING CRYING LESSON FROM?
“Every single year, more than 30,000 Americans have their lives cut short by guns. Thirty thousand. Suicides, domestic violence, gang shootouts, accidents. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost brothers and sisters or buried their own children,” he remarked.
Obama himself acknowledged the forthcoming legal debate, saying on Monday that he believes he is on solid ground.
“These are not only recommendations that are well within my legal authority and the executive branch, but they’re also ones that the overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners, support me doing,” Obama told reporters after an Oval Office meeting on Monday with his top law enforcement officials.
Even as gun control advocates have praised the White House’s efforts, they pledge to still push Congress and Obama to do more.
