[LEGALLY ARMED AMERICA] President Barack Hussein Obama just completed his fourth State Of The Union address. And like the others, (any many before him) it was filled with politic-ing and posturing to try to sway the American public to support his unpopular policies and put pressure on our Congressmen for him. But this one was a little different.
President Obama once again incorrectly stated that most of the country along with most NRA members wanted stricter gun control. Not true. As most politicians, numbers can be massaged to make almost any case. But this one is such a stretch that you wonder why he even bothers to float this lie each time gun control comes up. Prove me wrong.
But the thing that bothered me the most, was how he combines controversial issues with obvious “yes” issues. He mentioned that “Americans who believe in the 2nd Amendment – have come together around commonsense reform – like background checks that will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun”. What he’s talking about is closing the “loophole” in gun sales that allow guns to be sold amongst private citizens without having to perform a federal background check or make the transfer via a FFL dealer. But he adds “to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun”. Well, who’s going to disagree with that? That’s like me saying “I want to keep hoola hoops out of the hands of mass murderers who want to beat me to a bloody pulp with them”. Well, yeah, of course I want to restrict hoola hoops in that instance.
The problem is that the voters in this country have become so stupid that this kind of gun control rhetoric actually gains traction with them because they like to make their minds up quickly so they can go watch the latest episode of “American Idol” and not be bothered with silly ol’ politics. And tomorrow they have their talking point to share with their co-workers – those who actually work.
Keep your eye on Obama as he mounts his attack on our 2nd Amendment rights. He will stop at nothing to impose his will on the American people. Stay tuned to Legally Armed America as we provide you with all the latest updates on gun legislation and moves on our Constitutional rights. Oh, and vote for hoola hoop control!
