Obama, Biden and Feinstein: The 2nd Amendment Three Stooges

Like Larry, Moe and Curly trying to solve a problem, Obama, Biden and Feinstein are running in circles in the wrong direction.

President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and California Senator Dianne Feinstein have now rolled out their plan of salvation regarding gun violence. 

With the ceremonial proceedings of the 23 executive orders and the ceremonial introduction of the new "assault weapons ban", the whirlwind tour is set to begin, and yet, once again the real issues are not addressed, nor are any problems solved.  Much like the antics of the famed Three Stooges, they are poking each other in the eyes and beating each other on the head.

Not one thing proposed does anything to prevent the violence and tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, but from their grand announcements, you would think that these three have saved the world.  The truth is,not one thing proposed would have done anything to prevent such a tragedy.

But even beyond the rampage style killings, there is a whole section of gun violence that none of these proposals addresses, that kill far more people, including children, than all of the rampage murder victims combined since 1982, in one year , in one city.  Since 1992, there have been 396 rampage murder victims. The FBI defines a mass murderer or rampage murder as someone who kills four or more people in a single incident, usually in one location. By comparison, in the same time period, Chicago has had 13,231 murder victims.  Already year-to-date, Chicago recorded it's 40th homicide and January isn't even over.  Seven this past weekend.  According to the UK Guardian, there are 32 gun murders per day in the United States.

Why do I choose Chicago?  Number one, it is Obama's hometown.  Number two, it has the largest murder rate.  Number three, and I know the three stooges don't like to hear this; they have the strictest gun laws in the country.  Not to mention, many of the same bans called for in Feinstein's laughable gun ban proposal.  Gangs, according to most law enforcement officials, account for the majority of homicides.  Our inner cities are war zones akin to Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.  Nothing is there to address this problem.  Nothing.  Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, and even here in Racine, these murderers get minimal sentences and are on the streets again to kill.  Not even mentioned by the stooges.

So while the 99.97% of us gun owners who never commit a crime, according to the FBI, are being stripped of our rights because of a hand-full of truly evil lunatics, the inevitable will happen.  Some evil lunatic will try to out-do the last one and another tragedy will occur.  And this pattern will continue.  Always has, and always will, and nothing proposed will do anything to prevent it, nor will it reduce the number of deaths.  It is just another feelgood legislation that should never pass, should never be considered, and should just fade away.  That won't happen unless "We the People" let it happen.

No one hates white folks more than the half white. Remember that.

Truly a shame that his grandmother was just some wealthy bank executive, that could not measure up, in his mind (or his book) to his father ... the low-life philanderer. Enough said.

Brian I'm just agreeing with you that Obama's sick dream for america is a country where any person can't get their hands on any gun they please. Can you imagine such a horrid country? It would be so scary to walk around and think that the criminally insane, those with domestic abuse histories or and other form of criminal pasts wouldn't be allowed full and total access to guns and bullets that can rip right through a bullet proof vest. It would be such a sad time.

Kieth Worst- Answer the question? What automatic weapons are you talking about? Do you even know what you're talking about? And why don't we enforce the laws on the books that already ban the criminally insane, domestic abusers and felons. You can have all the laws you want, but unless someone enforces them, the y are totally useless. You are the perfect example of the uninformed and uneducated when it comes to firearms.

Brian, as Wayne LaPierre has told us, we need to have absolutely no restrictions on guns. Automatic, semi-automatic or anything in between. And enforcing "laws" against guns? Really? And harm the 2nd Amendment? Enforcing any laws against guns is highly unconstitutional as any one who understands the constitution knows. I'm with you. Let everyone have guns without any restrictions and use them as they please. Only liberals are foolish enough to pass laws that criminals will not obey. Strong conservative know you only pass laws criminals will follow otherwise it's foolish and impedes the rest of us.
