Gun Control 09

So, what’s going to be Barry’s top agenda item as he heads into what will be, thankfully, his final year in office?  Will it be to finally address properly the threat posed by ISIS so that the next president won’t be forced to deal with it?  Or will it be to try to calm the racial tension in this country that he has worked hard to incite?  Or might it be to take one last for-real crack at actually reducing the nation’s debt?  Or how about this?  How about working to get folks off the government dole, and into decent paying, ‘fulltime’ jobs?  Or will he make an attempt to extinguish any of the fires now blazing across the globe that he has played at least some role in starting?

Sorry, if you said any of those things, you’d not only be wrong, you’d be dead wrong! Because what Barry views as being his primary mission in life for the next year, besides bogus climate change of course, is to do all that he can to drastically reduce the number of Americans who own guns.  Yup, Barry wants to make gun control the top priority of his final year in office, because he say that while Americans aren’t more violent than other people, they do “have more deadly weapons to act out their rage.”  It was in a recent interview published in GQ magazine that Barry said easy access to guns is “the only variable” between the U.S. and other developed countries.

Barry said, “The main thing that I’ve been trying to communicate over the last several of these horrific episodes is that, contrary to popular belief, Americans are not more violent than people in other developed countries.”  He said, “But they have more deadly weapons to act out their rage.”  And when asked by interviewer Bill Simmons of HBO if gun control will be the “dominant” issue on his agenda next year, Barry replied, “I hope so.”  He said, “We have this weird habit in this culture of mourning and, you know, 48, 72 hours of wall-to-wall coverage, and then … suddenly we move on.”  He stressed, “And I will do everything I can to make sure that there’s a sustained attention paid to this thing.”

Over the course of recent months Barry has once again begun to more forcefully speak out about the need for stricter gun regulations, following mass shootings at a church in South Carolina and a community college in Oregon. It was in this most recent magazine article that Barry claimed the aftermath of the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in Connecticut in December 2012 was “the worst few days of my presidency.”  Following that shooting, the administration pushed Congress to enact tighter background checks on gun purchases, but the effort failed in the Senate.  Luckily it was one of those rare occasions where sanity actually ruled the day.

Barry went on to say, “We knew it was a stretch, just because of the politics of Congress and the NRA. But we had to try.”  Barry said, “In the absence of a movement politically in which people say, ‘Enough is enough,’ we’re going to continue to see, unfortunately, these tragedies take place.”  But look, as I have mentioned before, any number of times, if Barry were truly interested in seriously addressing what he has called the problem of gun violence, then there would be a very simply solution.  All Barry would need to do would be to enforce those gun laws already on the books.  The same laws that he essentially allows to go unenforced because of his twisted desire to use the ensuing gun violence as the premise for stricter laws.

This interview was conducted in the White House and apparently sometime back in October. And it was then, in what I’m not quite sure is a good thing or a bad thing, that Barry said in his seventh year in office, he feels “looser” and more confident.  He said, “There’s no doubt that the longer I’m in this job, the more confident I am about the decisions I’m making and more knowledgeable about the responses I can expect.”  And he went on to say, “And as a consequence, you end up being looser. There’s not much I have not seen at this point, and I know what to expect, and I can anticipate more than I did before.”  I don’t know, do we want a Barry who feels, ‘looser?’

And then Barry made a rather odd comment.  He said that when he leaves office, he doesn’t want an appointment to the Supreme Court.  Can you possibly image what it would be like to have this communist turd sitting on the Supreme Court?  For the rest of his life?  Man, if that doesn’t send a cold chill down your spine, your freakin’ dead!  Barry said, “Supreme Court justices, obviously, are hugely important.” And he added, “I don’t have the temperament to sit in relative solitude and just opine and write from the bench. I want to be in the action a little bit more.”  Not sure I really believe that.  That would certainly boost his already monumental ego in the stratosphere.

But anyway, so it is then that during his final year in office Barry’s primary focus will be working to create more laws instead of choosing to enforce the many gun laws already on the books.  In other words, his approach to gun laws is pretty much the same as his approach to our immigration laws.  It’s much easier to claim that the system is broken, than it is to simply enforce current laws,  Besides ,to do nothing more than to simply enforce current laws might create the illusion that there is nothing ‘the government’ can do to stem the supposed increase in gun violence.  And we know about Barry’s fondness for getting the government involved in everything.
