Rand Paul Vows To Fight Executive Action

Rand Paul Vows To Fight Executive Action
UPI FILE
Senator Rand Paul said he will seek to nullify any executive actions that could be construed as breaching the 2nd Amendment.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., said he will try to kill parts of President Barack Obama’s executive actions to curb gun violence, implying the President has a “king complex.”

Rand said on FOX News Wednesday he will seek to nullify any of Obama’s executive actions announced Wednesday “that smacks of legislation.”

“I’m very concerned about this president,” Paul said of Obama before discussing executive actions taken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt during his tenure in the White House. Roosevelt served three full terms and died in office during his fourth.

“FDR had a little bit of this ‘king complex’ also,” Paul said. “We had to limit FDR finally because he served so many terms that I think he would have ruled in perpetuity, and I’m very concerned about this president garnering so much power and arrogance that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.”

A summary provided by Paul’s office said his initiatives would try to nullify any executive actions that could be construed as breaching the 2nd Amendment, Roll Call reported. Paul said he also wants to ensure he or others have legal standing to challenge the executive actions in the Federal court system.

Paul’s efforts also would try to block funding to implement executive orders on gun control or related to restrictions on the 2nd Amendment, Roll Call said.

Paul said he thought his proposals concerning executive action had little chance of moving in the Senate, but that he believes he has more opportunity to block gun-control legislation from advancing in the Senate.

“I think there are a few Democrats that will worry about going home to West Virginia or other states like that and voting for a ban on guns,” he said.

Among the things Obama called for Wednesday was congressional action on several gun-control measures, including restrictions on high-capacity ammunition magazines and an assault weapons ban.

National Rifle Association President David Keene told ABC News: “All bets are off when a president really wants to go to war with you. We’re gonna be there and we’re gonna fight it.”

Most of Obama’s 23 executive actions, which don’t require congressional approval, applied to law enforcement, mental health and school safety — allowing Federal research into gun violence, pressing agencies to submit more mental health records into the existing background-check system and providing funding for schools to hire law enforcement officers.

Obama vowed to rally the Nation on the gun violence issue.

“I will put everything I’ve got into this, and so will Joe,” he declared, standing next to Vice President Joe Biden in a White House room filled with gun-control advocates and family members of shooting victims.

Keene, whose lobbying organization is the Nation’s largest gun-rights group, said NRA members would hold accountable any politicians who “sell them out to some pie-in-the-sky scheme such as the president is proposing.”

At the White House ceremony, which included four children who had written to the President asking for stronger gun laws, Obama encouraged Americans to ask their members of Congress, “What’s more important — doing whatever it takes to get an ‘A’ grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns, or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade?”

Keene told ABC the NRA remembers the 1994 federal assault-weapons ban passed Congress, despite initial lawmaker opposition, in part because of pressure from President Bill Clinton.

Obama noted former Republican President Ronald Reagan, “one of the staunchest defenders of the Second Amendment,” also wrote to Congress in 1994 to urge support for the assault-weapons ban.

Congress passed the 10-year ban Sept. 13, 1994, and Clinton signed it into law the same day. The ban expired 10 years later, as part of the law’s “sunset provision.”

    ummm, really? FDR was elected to 4 terms, died in 1945 (during his 4th term) and the 22nd amendment was not passed until 1947 and not ratified until 1951.

    • Robert Smith

      Let’s introduce some reality here: ” Reagan cast his support to a pair of critical gun control measures in the 1990s: 1993’s Brady Bill and 1994’s Assault Weapons Ban.”

      From: http://civilliberty.about.com/od/guncontrol/a/Gun-Rights-Ronald-Reagan.htm

      Yup.

      Now, what’s the screeching about Obama?

      Rob

      • Ted Crawford

        23 Executive Orders, issued on a SINGLE topic, in a SINGLE day, now what, possibly, could arouse concern about that? ?

      • ron . r

        Ran Paul is an idiot, plain and simple. I assume he not only wants to impeach the president, he wants to do away with the 14th amendment.

      • JUKEBOX

        The screeching is about how ludicrous all of his proposals are, considering the FACT that none of them is going to stop a crazy, perverted person from killing a bunch of people with a gun, bomb, knife, axe, hammer, bat, rock, or whatever. Obama is also a hypocrite, because he supports his AG Eric Holder, who has sold thousands of assault weapons to the criminal drug cartels without the required background check.

      • Tim D.

        Ron. R, I believe you are the idiot. Just my opinion though.

    FDR was curse without expanding too much and taking up pages and pages he gave the Russiians control of Polnad which ruined the nation.
    Obama has a three pronged attack on guns-disarm thereofre we can’t fight this opressive federal govt.,distract the people from the economy nad his failure with it,and to tax firearms and ammunition more.

    • Charlie

      Impeach Obama Now!!!

  • Warren

    If there were NO guns anywhere in the US and the government decided suddenly to arm only the criminals, not even the far left gun hating socialists would tolerate it. Yet that is tantamount to what gun control is because we cannot take them away from the criminals

    • eddie47d

      Once again Warren! Now pay attention and listen! You will be allowed to defend your self this year and more than likely until eternity. No one is going to take away your personal right in your home and have the ability to protect your family. So saying NO guns will be allowed is very factitious. What’s with this conspiracy of yours that the government is going to arm all the criminals? Now Fast & Furious was a plan that backfired so that wasn’t a deliberate plan to arm criminals but to stop them. That’s like a cop chasing a speeder and ends up causing an accident involving death. Maybe you could explain yourself better in what you meant. Now I could say that the government (Bush) hired Blackwater who ended up being hired thugs (criminals) who ran around killing innocent people. Is that what you were referring too?

      • Ted Crawford

        Really?
        “The goal is an ultimate ban on all guns, but we have to take it a step at a time and go for limited access first” Jayner Sims

      • Adolf Schmidt

        Hey Eddie, do think the Iran/ Contra scandal was another accident? Seems our government will put guns in anybodies hands, as long as they’re not American citizens. I wonder how much gun violence was the result of that one?

      • Charlie

        Impeach Obama Now!!!

      • http://google rose

        Why is the media not looking into the Sandy Hook incident as being a hoax? Why was there a website set up for donations for the victims of Sandy Hooks school shootings on December 11, 2012 when it didn’t happen until December 14, 2012. Don’t me believe just google it. Better hurry before the government removes it. The date can’t be faked. What about Emilee Parker who supposedly killed there? She was photographed leaning on Obama’s leg with other kids two days later. Just google it. Or how about her aunt that said Emilee had two bigger sisters when they are little sisters? Wouldn’t an aunt know one way or another? And then how about the video of her dad on u-tube? How he was laughing and then how he suddenly when into acting mode to psych himself into acting sad. I don’t believe there was a mass shooting in a grade school at Sandy Hooks. And the list goes on of people who were supposedly killed there and who are still alive and the inconsistency of the facts

      • eddie47d

        A. Schmidt: Could be up to 700,000 .

      • http://yahoo nmiller51

        If Fast and Furious was a plan that just backfired, then why did Obama do what he did to protect his buddy from answering questions? Because he is a sneaky corrupt person. Look at Australia’s news reports, crime is through the roof since the gun ban was enforced. Murder is up 19% and theft is a whopping 69% because the criminals know that the citizens are defenseless. The law abiding people have to keep their handguns unloaded and locked up. By the time a thug breaks in, they do not have time to unlock a safe and load their gun. Criminals will always have guns because they have no respect for the rules anyway. I have been doing a lot of research on this and it is a proven fact that where guns are banned there is more crime and murder. Obama sure likes having more hired guns for his protection than any President before him and don’t say it is because he’s black. There has been several white Presidents shot before him. The arrogant Obama is on a mission to waste taxpayers dollars as fast as possible. Greedy and power hungry , lies all the time to the people sums up the corrupt Obama.

    • Steve E

      I’m not a criminal now, but I would be if they confiscated or made me register my guns. Because I won’t comply. Just like many others.

    • http://widblue.net derrell

      citizens with out guns are easly enslaved

      • eddie47d

        That depends on which side of the citizenry those guns are on. I wouldn’t trust some of those right wing nut cases in the Alaskan Peacekeepers Militias one bit. How are the gun crazy Taliban working out for the citizens of Afghanistan? They are one big citizen militia controlling and threatening the rest of the country.

      • Charlie

  • Humpty Dumpty

    FINALLY! Someone is taking on Presidential Executive Orders, a perc presidents have taken for granted but NOT granted in the U.S. Constitution. PEOs are nothing short of providing for one-man, dictatorial powers to one person, which has to be done away with NOW. President Obama has issued more PEOs than most presidents!
    Go, Senator Rand Paul, go! And thank you for your dedication to human rights and personal liberties.

    • Joe

      Also, don’t forget the 20 some Czars appointed by Obama. Unelected, anaccountable. On the road to a socialist dictatorship. This is easily predictalble based on even the little bit we know about Obama.

  • roger gunderson

    I’m hoping Rand Paul will run for President.

  • Ranchman

    When did we start asking 5 & 6 year old kids how to run the country? This administration has no shame. They will exploit everything and LIE through their teeth to get their way. An AR15 WAS NOT USED at Sandy Hook! There are so many questions surrounding every perceived “crisis” over the last 30 years or so. Start asking the hard questions, people. Don’t let them shove the “official story” down your throats. As far as Rand Paul goes, we need to throw our support behind him and every politician who will stand against the Marxist regime of Barack Hussein Obama or Barry Soetoro or whatever his name really is.

    Remember 1776 & Keep Your Powder Dry!

    • eddie47d

      Maybe he used it and maybe he didn’t. (Ar-15) What difference does it make since he wanted to use it. If the NRA can use dead kids for more weapons sales then how is it “shameful” to have kids be front and center in denouncing the gun violence that affects them? You are the one with “no shame” in proclaiming “perceived crises” . Was Columbine fake to you also as some of you are proclaiming about Sandy Hook. Remember I lived one mile from Columbine and my neighbor was shot and wounded so some of us get rather tired of your arrogance and self righteousness too!

      • Ted Crawford

        ” The Nations murder rate is at a near 40 year low and the number of privately owned guns is at an all time high, and rising by about 4.5 million annually.
        Right-to-Carry States have lower violent crime rates than the average for the rest of the country. Total violent crime, in the Right-to-Carry States was 24% lower, murder – 28% lower,robbery 50% lower, and aggravated assults – 11% lower.
        The cities with the highest murder rates were cities with servere gun control” 2007 FBI Crime Report

        say man do you know what happens when the people of this country take control from the bankers and law makers,biuldbergers?you better have a gun !!!!! or you will not make it to the end..

      • eddie47d

        Ted; Right to carry states or Red States are not necessarily safer and some are even more deadly. Homicides are up in Indiana in 2012,Arkansas,North Carolina,Louisiana,Mississippi and Tennessee. Murder is also up in Idaho 42%,North Dakota 50% and pro gun Wyoming 120%. This comes from The Guardian News.

      • momo

        The number of murders in Chicago, with its gun control laws, was 513 for 2012. That’s more than the number of KIA in Afghanistan for 2012.

      • eddie47d

        119,079 children died from firearms since 1979. That is more than Vietnam,Korea Afghan War and Iraq War put together. Maybe you can wrap your head around that number since those 20 dead kids at Newtown didn’t faze you MOMO!

      • JUKEBOX

        Eddie, can you tell me what kind of assault weapon the Muslim doctor used at Fort Hood to kill all those people? Obama said this was just a workplace incident, and did not utter one word about more gun control, but it was probably because he was too busy campaigning for his second term.

        Unfortunate as these tragedies are, put it into perspective. We have over 300,000,000 people in this country. We have lost 40 or 50 children through the acts of unstable people. Our super smart supreme dictator in chief says we have to start the process of ridding our society of these evil objects that caused these atrocities. We are an imperfect people living in an imperfect world and the Libs think they know how to run it perfect. ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. perhaps we should also slow the speed limit down to 25 MPH to reduce road fatalities. The real answer, start being good parents. start raising your children to godly standards. We are doomed otherwise.

      • Charlie

        Well,,,then,,,impeach Obama now!!!

  • Donald Walter

    Take the name or reference to Obama out of the discussion and refer to President Hitler or President Stalin as the newly elected President. What would be on their agenda for control by the government?

    • eddie47d

      Now there is a bald assertion that Vickie can chew on for awhile with another agenda maker playing the Hitler card!

      • JeffH

        eddie, you don’t even have a clue of what “bald assertion” means. Obama can be compared, in may way, to Hitler.

        The greatest comparisons of Obama to Hitler aren’t genocide or holocaust based…DUH!

      • JeffH

        Some people would balk at the comparison between Hitler and Obama, saying it was unfair. After all, Hitler started WWII and killed 11,000,000 Jews and Gentiles in death camps, and Obama has done nothing like that. Well, it’s only unfair if you compare Hitler at the end of his rule to the beginning of Obama’s. But if you compare Hitler and Obama at the beginning of their rise to power,it’s extremely fair.

        Similiarities between Adolf Hitler & Barack Hussein Obama:
        • Both Hitler and Obama held rallies in outdoor stadiums to excite and inflame the people’s passions. Frequently women would faint or break into tears.
        • Both Hitler and Obama wrote ghost-written autobiographies prior to the start of theri run for political office. Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle), and Obama wrote Dreams Of My Father. Both men then wrote a second book talking about their goals for German and America. Hitler wrote A New World Order, and Obama wrote The Audacity of Hope.
        • Both Hitler and Obama originally had last names that were changed later in life. Hitler used to be Schickelbruber, and Obama’s last name was Soetoro.
        • Both Hitler and Obama hid their real identies. Hiter had a Jewish ancestry, and Obama a Muslim one. But unlike Hitler, Obama flaunted his Muslim roots in his start as a politician in order to defuse the inevitable firestorm. His ploy of “hiding in plain sight” worked very well.
        * Both Hitler and Obama’s supporters followed them blindly, and without question
        • Both Hitler and Obama used political power and coercion to conceal and hide their birth certificates from coming to public view. Hitler made his disappear, and Obama is unwilling and unable to produce his long-form birth certificate.
        • Both Hitler and Obama advocate using young people as a driving force to create an “army” of youth dedicated to their Ideals. Hitler had his Hitler Youth, and Obama his
        Obama Youth Brigade.
        • Both Hitler and Obama were known for their tremendous oratorical skills
        • Both Hitler and Obama received Messianic comparisons, and both men had songs of adoration written about them and for them.
        • Like Hitler, Obama rules in direct disregard to the will and wishes of the people.
        • Like Hitler, Obama has an obvious distaste for the Jews, and sides with the Muslims every chance he gets.
        • Both Hitler and Obama were able to mezmerize the people even when it was obvious that what they were saying was not true.
        • Both Hitler and Obama used domestic terrorists to launch their careers. Hitler had his Brown Shirts from his beer hall days, and Obama had people like Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Rashid Khalidi.
        • Like Hitler, Obama advocates using murder as a means of population control.

      • eddie47d

        I remember back in the 70′s where Nixon was compared to Hitler because of his using the FBI against Americans,The War in Vietnam and of coarse Watergate. Some accusations were true but some were BALD ASSERTIONS such as those played by Donald.

      • Jimmy The Greek

        Jeff H It would be unfair to Hitler you need to put obongo out there with Old Joe Stalin or pol pot ,

      • Hedgehog

        Eddie, never mind Hitler. You have another American hero in the making. Remember Lincoln, THE GREAT EMANCIPATOR, who freed the slaves (cost 800,000 plus dead). Soon you will have Obama, THE GREAT PREVARICATOR, who will enslave the free (cost untold dead and the end of America).

      • eddie47d

        That’s is why you are a troll Jeff H because your list is nothing but conjecture used to inflame passions. Try something fact based in what he actually did and not weak comparisons. Some scholars compare the Egyptian empire to the Mayan empire because they were built around the same time. Yet their is no physically proof that they ever had anything to do with each other. Your trying to demonize Obama with false Conjectures but what else should we expect from you! Nice attempt in trying to rewrite history and shape the agenda.

      • eddie47d

        More trash talk from Hedgehog no surprise there either. Considering that the murder rates in Canada were up in 2012 by 44 bodies maybe you ought to concentrate on fixing your domestic problems. You know instead of making cowardly comments!

      • JeffH

        LMAO at eddie, again and again. I’ll leave the emotional actions and responses to you and your ignorant progressive/commie pals.

        Hey dufus, if the shoe fits, wear it…weak or not, these are valid comparisons.

      • mark

        JeffH, this list comparing Hitler and Obama is full of lies and fabrications as well as other ludicrous assertions. Both drew large crowds with screaming, crying women. So I guess this means Elvis Presley and the Beatles were Hitler also? So was Billy Graham. And of course, Rand Paul himself at a Tea Party Rally. Both ghost wrote autobiographies? Hitler wrote Mein Kampf himself when he was in prison in the 1920s. There is zero definitive proof of Hitler having any Jewish ancestry, though lots of rumors spread by his poltiical enemies. His father Alois, not his son Adolf, changed his last name from Shickelgruber to Hitler. Hitler never changed his name. Neither did Obama. His mother changed it when she married Mr. Sotero. Their followers have not supported them blindly. Many leftist Democrats are deeply disilusioned over Obama esp on his foreign policy, huge use of drones, aerial contribution to the Libyan Civil War, etc. Obama hasn’t concealed his birth certificate, he released it twice in two different forms. Comparing some of Obama’s youth programs to the Hitler Youth is an absolute joke. Some 15% of the German population, that would be 50 million Americans today were in the Hitler Youth it was a mass program of ferocious political indoctrination that every German boy was forced to join. No gov’t youth program of that scope and political orientation exists today – or ever has – in the United States. Most historians acknowledge that Hitler, for all his evil, was one of the greatest orators of the 20th century. He did not require a teleprompter either. Obama has never matched those skills. He also has never called for savage, brutal racial war against minorities as Hitler did over and over again in his speeches. In most of his major speeches Obama has called for giving poorer people health care not smashing America’s enemies or wiping out all Jewish Americans. Numerous songs of adoration were written about Hitler and were quite popular among millions of Germans. I have heard of no such vastly popular songs devoted to Obama. Obama has not disregarded the people’s will, although he has not kept all of his political promises. Twice he ran in popular elections and twice he won 51% or more of the vote. Hitler never received more than 33% of the German vote as he did in 1932. Obama’s never given a single anti-Semitic speech in his life calling for the annihilation of American Jews, calling for their expulsion from American soil, calling for their imprisonment in camps. Hitler gave several savage, ugly, bloodcurdling speeches on these topics. The Brownshirts, the Blackshirts, the SS, and the Gestapo, Hitler’s terrorist supporters killed, as we all know, millions of innocent people to establish their brutal racist, Aryan supremacist regime. The American terrorists listed were anti-Vietnam War protestors responsible for the deaths of three or four people and Obama has never embraced these terrorists, invited them to his inauguarals, to the White House, appointed them to administrative position’s in his government, etc. Hitler revelled in having his mass murdering terrorists who slaughtered millions around him at all time, he promoted them to high positions in his government, he praised them in his many speeches.

        Of course, Obama has also never launched a World War that killed 60 million people or slaughtered over 10 million in death and concentration camps. But I know that to many of the subscribers on this blog, Obama did something far worse: he enacted a heatlh care bill to help those who have no or inadequate medical coverage, and he is now calling for a more intensive background check on those who purchase firearms as well as limiting multi-round magazines to 10 bullets. I’m sure that when he goes before his Maker this will be judged unforgiveable as opposed to killing 12 million innocents in camps and starting a war that slaughtered 60 million. Hitler would get a pass for his crimes by many on this site. Obama, never.

        We didn’t know you were part owner of this blog Jeff H. No wonder you are so defensive when other posters speak up.

    Banning “assault” weapons is just the beginning. If the government can’t control the criminals (as they always have guns) and, if I remember, correctly, Eric Holder, was supplying guns to Mexico across the border. It is the SOS, don’t enforce the laws u have and government officials are beyond the laws. Why don’t ask Barack Obama if his children, at their private schools, are protected by people with guns? YES, they are…..but our kids are not that important. GOD BLESS AMERICA…..WE NEED IT.

      Here in the school district that my grandchildren go to in new caney Texas there is at least one school district police officer in every school , FYI we are taking real cops with real police powers , not some rent a cop .

    • eddie47d

      Most schools have the right to hire as many guards as they want so that is silly to say that the school Obama’s children go to can’t have protection. Like any schools issue it has to be approved and voted on by the taxpayer. Now if you are a taxpayer then be willing to increase your property taxes to pay for it.

      Impeach Obama…

  • JimH

    It’s intresting Obama didn’t even give Congress time to do antthing before he started in with plans for Executive orders.
    That tells me that he already believes that Congress won’t be EXTREME enough for him.
    Obama knows what happened to King George III. and how it happened.
    Be wary of the politition who is afraid of you being armed.

  • MOLON LABE!!

    Has anybody else realized that nobody who wants more gun control NEVER mention Chicago? A city with the strictest gun control in the Nation, ALSO has the MOST violent crime; the most gun violence, and the MOST murder of any state. How is it that a state in THIS nation has MORE murder than in a war zone? Why do politicians ( and liberals/ progressives, etc…..) refuse to pay attention to history? Are they too stupid to understand history? Or do they just think that the American people are too stupid?

    • eddie47d

      Not true Molon so you say whatever you want or “whatever it takes” even if its wrong. Now Chicago is number two in murders and Mississippi is the number one state. Why don’t you pay attention to facts or would that hurt your tin foil head? I won’t answer your last question! Did you know there were 1.3 million gun deaths in the USA since 1969? Some say that is more than all of Americas “real” wars!

      • Hedgehog

        Come on Eddie, even a dumb Canuck like me knows that Chicago is a City and Mississippi is a state. Try and keep it to apples to apples, oranges to oranges.

      • eddie47d

        Come on Hedgehog! “THE MOST MURDERS OF ANY STATE”. Now can you comprehend!

      • JeffH

        FACT: Gun Ownership Up, Crime Goes Down

      • ConservOkie

        Would that have anything to do with Mississippi having the highest percentage per capita of Blacks?

      • Charlie

        Impeach Obama Now!!!

      • eddie47d

        Jeff H your still Quacking me up! Arizona has the loosest gun laws in the nation and crime is now way up. Just read that while searching and they surpassed Louisiana! Those darn red states love a good shoot out don’t they!

      • RandyAZ

        You are correct Eddie regarding Arizona,What you do not take into account is the sheer number of Illegal Immigrants we are blessed with perpetrating the majority of the crimes here. Human Smuggling,(AKA Kidnapping),is almost entirely an Illegal Alien based crime.

        If AZ had those “Improved Progressive Ideas” like NY or IL has with our current Illegal Alien situation,crime would not only go up,it would in fact dwarf anything seen before in the US.

  • luther chinn

    Thank you Senator Paul !

    This is all political agenda for Obama. Did anyone actually listen to the wording of the letters Obama read that these elementary school children supposedly wrote? ‘I couldn’t bear it if something happened…’, more to the age group and education level of these children would have been, ‘I couldn’t stand it…’, or their asking for stronger gun laws, how many 3rd graders actually understand to ask for that? Not just say I don’t want people to get hurt anymore. I personally think the flaunting of these children is all a fake publicity stunt by our highest ranking members of government to prey on our feelings and fears. Start with banning certain types of weapons and ammunition (I am for banning armor piercing to civilians, please.) and then move on to banning them outright. They have already quashed many of the 1st Amendment rights, now this. That right was put in the Constitution to protect us from our government and now they want to take it from us for their own agenda. It won’t get guns out of the hands of criminals just honest civilians who should be allowed to have them. They are out to enslave the free that’s for sure, with only the super rich elitists to rule.

    • JimH

      Maybe when these same kids get done writing Sata Claus, they can write to Obama and ask that he doesn’t leave a masive debt for them to pay.
      If they are old enough to dictate gun laws they should have a hand at budgeting too.

    Randcide Paul,your mouth is like a scabed sore. The only thing that comes out is dis-ease. Anything you say is poison to everyday people. Please everyone don’t listen to this freak who only out for himself… Rev. G.B.Henry

  • http://www.knightsoftheroses@hotmail.com Rev.George B.Henry

    All of you who talk about killing people if gun control put in place. Let me ask you this; Say you have a love one who believe as you do,and want to kill like you do. You two go out on your mission of murder. They walk in front of you,and the shooting start ( no matter if it is a person or police ) The shooting starts, you look towards your love one. All of a sudden you hear a sound like a rock hitting a Mellon. You see your love one head explode…. Brains fly everywhere the eye hanging on their cheek,and the body drop as the blood leaped from the body of your love one 5feet in the air,and you try holding them as if you could put them back together again. Then a bullet rips threw your belly,intestine rip open, and your waste leaks into the torso. Sometimes it take two hours before you die. Would you like to have that to be the last thing you see? Those who support gun control have guns too and will support the President’s effort to keep children from being murdered by whacked minded people. Don’t let other’s FEARS rule you as it rules them. Instead of shooting and killing others……” USE THE LAW! ” To change things. The Law maybe slow,but it is effective under the Laws of the Constitution. Let that be the gun you use “The Constitution” It bullets are very powerful….. They are called ” Laws “

    • Charlie

      Rev. Henry,..
      What “Law” did King Jesus Christ speak into place at Luke 22:36 ? It’s called the “Law” of self defense… The Constitution DOES NOT supersede The Bible… Meanwhile…………..
      Praise King Jesus for Salvation and Healing… Acts 2:38 is salvation…

      Thank you Rev for your insight. You did very accurately describe what death looks like. It is not pretty. I have and had many friends and family in combat theater, and many come back so disfigured and mentally broken that it makes you question everything that you believe in including your country. I do not believe that the vast majority of the people reading this forum want civil war including myself.

      None of them want their mothers and fathers to lose their social security checks or pensions, let alone their access to medicare. They paid into these systems their entire lives, and deserve to get their money back and receive the services they paid for. None of the them wish to walk away from their families, jobs ( if they still have one ),homes, property, community responsibilities, or material property, but they are willing to do so if and when the need arises, and it will not be up to the government to decide if it is no longer responsive to the cause of liberty.

      I am not trying to excite a base and I am glad that you injected a dose of reality into the discussion as it is much needed to temper our lust to fight. We are after all Americans!
      I do not believe that Abraham Lincoln should have been held in such high esteem by our populace, and the reason I say so is because history is always written by the victor. I do my best to look at both sides of the coin when researching history.

      I could spew tons of facts about Lincoln, but I choose not to dishonor the dead. What I will say is that he would have been a President with History on his side immortal had he made diplomacy work and prevented the Civil War and the resulting 800,000 deaths of our fellow Americans. The Bill of rights is not and amendable document and the president must follow its directive or he should not assume the oath of office.

      I love my country and the principles that it is “supposed” to stand for, as I am certain you do too. I hope our president comes to respect the foundation that this country was built upon ( including its many flaws throughout history ) but if he does not, then I will no longer be in a position to support the Federal Government at any level no matter what they attempt to impose upon me or my fellow citizens.

    This is the situation. Obama has built a social democratic party that keep his followers trapped in proverty or dependency on the federal government. He has alittle more than half many of them voting for him even if they did not like him due to the money they get. This is the best way to dislodge him. To show that he is not building a better America but declining our values. Money and its usage is the winning factor. I think the Republican are more concern and have a better way however no matter how good their ideas are they will have a hard time selling this to Americas. Americans want free stuff, like a credit card in the hand of a child. A large number will always vote for the party that gives instead of the party that wants to be more responsible in spending. That is Obamas strength and a good one. He is hard to beat but Republicans are going to have to change or have a better game plan even if theirs is the best.

    • http://none Steve Muguerza

      Rev. George B. Henry is one of these fearmongers that would probably kick himself in the ass a voilent person came to his neighbor. The gun issue is for responsible civilian. 325 million people in this nation that means that their are probably many not so good civilian that use gun in not a good way. I would fear to live in this nation if the only one that are armed are the criminal. We do have laws that protect us and being vigilant and armed in need is not a bad idea. Criminals will steal gun or obtain gun in anyway. I would hate to live in a country that is disarmed. Look at Mexico, Rev. George B. Henry. When someone as you describes kills someone senselessly I bet you would rather have a gun to prevent this rather than call 911. You logic is crude and how much did you pay online to get that Rev. in front of your name.

      Fony paper money is in violation of The Bible and The Constitution,,,also causing inflation … Impeach Obama……………

    I just read Rand Pauls boy just got picked up by the police for drunk driving and assault.I hope the punk didn’t have a gun with him and endangering the lives of others let alone possibly killing someone on the highway.Perhaps Rand better go home and straighten out his own house.Whenever I see Rand speaking, there is something wrong going on there but I haven’t been able to identify exactly what it is yet.I know he is in campaign mode,lol, good luck with that.

    • Charlie

      Rand should move a “Bill” to impeach Obama……………

    Oh, isn’t this comforting. What is he going to fight this with?
