Today the people hating gun-controllers lost a battle in the Senate. Gun control will not include expanded background checks. Today Obama put his arrogance on parade by complaining about the Congress representing the will of the people. We saw Obama as he has always been -- manipulative and backstabbing, intending to rule the people rather than serve them.
[Today Obama] accused both Republicans and Democrats who voted against the bill of political cowardice. What a charming president 2nd term Obama is turning out to be.
“There were no coherent arguments as to why we would not do this. It came down to politics-the worry that that vocal minority of gun owners would come after them in future elections,” the president said. Obama ignored the fact that 65% of the people regard gun rights as a protection against tyranny, according to Rasmussen reports poll.
The president went on to blame the National Rifle Association and other gun owners groups of distorting the provisions of the legislation.
"But instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill," Obama lied about the bill's organized opposition. This lie fits in with Obama's lies about his gun control bill's supporters. Its clear Obama intended to use the data gathered in background checks to build data base of all gun owners.
Only 3 years ago, Obama got the Congress to ignore the will of the people as he pushed through his unpopular ObamaCare bill. In 2010, the "Democratic" Party paid a heavy price for crossing the will of the people.
The Brady Act of 1993 already requires background checks for gun buyers. Anytime a federally licensed gun dealer sells a firearm, he must run a full background check with the FBI NICS before he hands the gun over to the buyer. The only exceptions are for law enforcement personnel and certain types of state licensed, private persons. This law applies for FFLs at gun shows too.
The battle isn't over yet. Obama served notice he intends to disarm the people somehow, referring to this defeat as simply "round one".
