Obama Secretly Briefs Mayors on His Gun Control Plans

Posted on August 29, 2013

He just won’t stop.

On Tuesday, in a closed-door meeting with 16 big city mayors, President Obama affirmed that he has not abandoned his gun control agenda, telling those in attendance that he would continue the fight to reform the nation’s gun laws.

According to a statement released by the White House, the president “vowed to continue doing everything in his power to combat gun violence through executive action and to press Congress to pass common-sense reforms like expanding the background check system and cracking down on gun trafficking.”

In April, the Senate failed to pass several different gun control bills, including a ban on so-called ‘assault weapons,’ a ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds and a universal background check bill that would have expanded criminal background checks to firearm purchases and transfers made over the Internet and at gun shows.

The background check bill, which was sponsored by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), was the centerpiece of Obama’s plan to reduce gun violence in the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Although he promised to continue the fight, Obama also acknowledged that there are limitations to what his administration and the federal government can do to curb gun-related violence.

    "Obama also acknowledged that there are limitations to what his administration and the federal government can do to curb gun-related violence."
    According to the Constitution, especially the 2nd amendment, the federal government has no authority to do anything about this. "Gun violence" is crime – that makes it a state an local matter.
    "Gun control" has nothing to do with curbing gun violence, it actually increases it. Read John Lott.

    Again, this government is telegraphing their intent to restrict and nuulify the Second Amendment; and as usual using the "fighting crime" moniker. But yet, turn a blind eye to those areas of rampant crime in the cities.
    The american citizens seem to ignore these facts when they are served a small victory when a bill to restrict or ban is shot down. That the disarming of america is a top priority of government seems to be of no concern because "it was defeated" ; for now. But it will be back. It will not go away. And, the American people better get used to it.
    The american people can visulize their resolve by networking with others in their states and locales tocontinue this battle when it is again dropped at their doorstep, again.
    But , will they?

  3. Congress has got to get Obummer out of the White House. I never ever thought that a person holding that office could take control and do what ever he chooses to do. We cannot give up our guns when the world is getting more wicked, we have to
    be able to protect ourselves. I think that is his goal, take away any power we have to protect ourselves from a run a way government.

    ALL IT TAKES is to make certain that you elect INTELLIGENT, HISTORY-VERSED AMERICAN PATRIOTS as your MAYORS and Obozo can talk to them until he turns blue ….and they will stand-fast with our U.S. Constitution, which they swore an oath to UPHOLD!!!

    ~ Karl Marx, Communist Manifesto

  6. the USA is being run by,and we citizens are being ruled over be a foreign nation weather we like it or not ,we have as a nation transgressed God's commandments for over two hundred years and have come under the curse of Deuteronomy 28:15-68,not just the USA but all unbiblical Government and unbiblical religion as well,when the people of God fall into sin and refuse to repent this is always standard procedure for God,we have rejected his Government and his rule of law and now we get to pay the price of our disobedience,(don't think so)well wait and see it will get worse.

  7. As usual this Bozo doesn't confront the real problem. In Chicago alone these are an estimated 120,000 gang members who distribute two tons of drugs each month. Instead of confronting these perpetrators of crime, our "Dear Leader" attacks an inanimate object.

  8. Both parties have participated in the War on (some) drugs since the 1970s. Mr. Obama is the latest cheerleader of this useless and phony war, one that has raised the number of violent deaths in the US and has probably contributed more than any other single cause to "demands for gun safety".

    What mystifies me is what the Elites and Politicians intend to do to us once they have disarmed us. I do not think that it will be pleasant.

  9. That POS that illegally occupies OUR White House can bloviate all he can but we patriotic Americans who know & understand fully, the 2nd Amendment will make doubley damn' sure it will not be infringed!! Sign all the phony EOs & UN bulll$hit you want, but the 2nd will stand FOREVER, you damnable gob of excrement!!!!!!!!!! Come on, try & take mine!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Say what you want about our commander-in-chief, ya gotta admit, he's persistent.

  11. Yes, he is, David, so is satan, but he eventually loses. He keeps on with very little variation until then.

  12. Rabelrouser says:

    Simple answer: http://Modernmilitiamovement.com
    The greater it grows across the nation the greater our resolve is seen to defend our Rights and Freedoms

  13. I agree, but in Florida we have a problem as the people keep electing Mayors with prior arrest records and wind up watching them get re-arrested in office for ongoing crimes. The 4th Mayor just recently arrested in this state. So the problem seems to be we are electing criminals or criminal wanna-be's to public office who may feel that disarming the American people would be like hitting the Powerball Lottery!

  14. ANTICRIME says:

    THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "GUN-VIOLENCE"!!! ~ PEOPLE can be VIOLENT and "USE" OBJECTS, such as a gun to enhance their violent acts, but inanimate objects are just that ….INANIMATE!!!
    HOW ABOUT when guns are used to SAVE LIVES, shall we call them …..GUN-LIFESAVERS?!

    Bottom Line: BUZZ WORDS like "GUN-VIOLENCE" is nothing less than a Commies' way to mislead the poorly educated and ignorant in our society to vote for the loss of their OWN RIGHTS!!!!!!!
    Hosea 4:6 "My people perish for their lack of knowledge"

  15. Obama will never report that since Florida started the move to reuire issuance of Concealed Carry Parmits to law abiding citiens the incidence of violent crims, all violent crime, has been on a steady retresat. each state that followed Forida's lead has sen the saame reduction in all violent crime.

    This is one inconvenient problem for Obama in his quest to disarm the law abiding citizens of this country. You'll never hear this from him or any of his worshippers.

    The Criminal'N Chief or Thief, is at it again, and this time for what reason? Not for Sandy Hook but because it is ultimately about "Control" that's as plain and simple as it gets. All of the Hooo Ha, is nothing more than all his rhetoric that he keeps spewing from filthy mouth. This POS should be brought before the Haig and tried as a war criminal. Commiefornia, Colorado, and one more state WILL start going from Door to Door breaking, entering, and taking your personal property AKA your Guns AND Ammo, at the least and HIGHLY LIKELY, that means anything of value. In Commiefornia Gov. Brown has hired some 33 agents to kick down your door at 3:00 AM and hold you at Gunpoint while the ransack your house looking for what they consider "Contraband" AKA Guns….Those EVIL GUNS. We Commifornians are paying the "State" in Tax Revenue to come and steal our private property. What a deal…

  17. We need to contact the teaparty supporters in these mayors cities and go to work on replacing the mayors that support this agenda!

  18. Extremely STUPID but persistent!-yours NOT mine, I didn't vote for him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Here are two videos on rifles and firepower. If you're not aware of the undistorted facts, you will find these demonstration videos interesting and informative.

  21. ANTICRIME says:

    SO IS CONSTIPATION!!!

  22. James Bernard says:

    Again! The Congress Ain't gonna do nuttin! I have already told Marco that know matter what he is not getting my vote his next time around! The House and the Senate have got to be cleansed! That means All Persons except maybe two or three! You Coloradan's in those County's that want to secede from your present Colorado, don't fall for this! The enemy will only follow you! Stand and fight! Your State is your Country and it has been invaded from the outside and from within! Stand up!!!

  23. Since he is "from" Chicago, and since he admits he "used" drugs, don't you wonder if he has close ties to some of these thugs?

  24. There is one thing missing from the "gun control" debate – citizens legally use firearms every day to defend their lives and property from criminals. The NRA monthly magazine The American Rifleman has a section titled "The Armed Citizen" detailing some of these. I propose mailing copies each month to our representatives and senators so they will become aware of the legal, positive uses of firearms. I've read estimates of 500,00 to 1,500,000 self defense uses each year.

    Who did he Brief? All his croney Libtards Mayors Like Bloomie? Mr Light in the sneakers himself the elf Rahm Emmanuel? Did they hold hands or just wring them in fear? What morons

    You'll never get the Liberals out of NYC so just sit back and wait a bit they will self destruct with their stopping the stop and frisk policy, abortions at will and illegals getting benefits. Before you know it NY will be a slum just like Chicago

  28. Obama wants to play at war with cruise missiles plus maybe nuclear weapons. While at the same time trying to take away law biding citizens their GOD given rights also their Constitutional rights because of his inbred ignorance of the subject or either his hatred of free people.

  29. Carl D Sedillo says:

    It is obvious the electorate hasn't a clue about President Obama's agenda. From the way he yaks and yaks and then clearly demonstrates he hasn't a clue either, leads anyone with an ounce of understanding; WE ARE IN DEEP TROUBLE. Moreover any issue that moves this Country further to the left is his ambition. The real problem we have is the Democrat plurality in the Senate, and very few if any viable candidates in the States that will elect a new Senator in 2014. Moreover the Speaker and Minority Leader in the Senate remain glued to their chair because they believe the Liberal Media agenda that castigates them each time they open their mouth—and they obviously believe they must remain "Country Club Republican or the world's roof will fall on them as it did for "Chicken Little." We are our own worst enemy."

  30. "There are limitations to what he can do to curb gun violence?" What a lie. He can vigorously and mercilessly prosecute gun trafficking, which he actually reduced by 45%! He can ask Congress for stiff new penalties for just the possession of an illegally obtained gun, such as a minimum 50 year sentence.

    Notice most gun violence in America is perpetrated (according to FBI stats; not according to my opinion), by African Americans and Latinos in urban neighborhoods; he CANNOT ask for tough new gun laws, because the majority of gun crime is committed by….HIS CONSTITUENTS. He wants to disarm people WHO DO NOT VOTE FOR HIM, not the ones who do.

    How obvious this is.

  31. Screw Obama,his administration,and the majority of the Federal government,they are all a bunch of communists.Obama does NOT care about the constitution,and neither does the rest of the feds.They will do as they please and have done so in the past.WAKE UP!!!!!

  32. How about instead of gun control we have criminal control. Stop letting these criminals go with just a slap on the wrist. By the way tell me who is going to control the guns the criminals have?

  33. then we will hunt those that think they have a right to our rights. Shall not be infringed means we are coming for you…and your seed…and any lapdog organization that gets in the way of my rights…we will hunt you…and your families and their families…any that try to dominate will be dominated. Mayors look to be the first on this list.

  34. HolyShirt says:

    Its Second Amendment (which guarantees all the others) is the only legal impediment to tyrants imposing dictatorship. Effective defensive weaponry is what differentiates Citizens from Subjects.

  35. We don,t need any more law we a lot less idiots in D.C. and a bunch with balls to get rid of the chief idiot and his minions

  36. Communist to the core. Raise a child up, and even when he is old he will never depart from it.

    His father was a racist/marxist. So was his mother. The church he went to was a radical leftist American-hating church. He was mentored by liberal radicals, funded by revolutionary leftist and grew up as anti-American Israeli hating Muslim.

    Prov 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

    He is virtually a worthless individual, fomenting violence, expressing hatred, yet living off of others.

    Prov 10:20 The tongue of the just [is as] choice silver: the heart of the wicked [is] little worth.

    Prov 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

  37. Rabelrouser says:

    That information needs to get into the hands of the more uninformed citizens, the politicians already have their mind made up and that is to disarm us for their power structure and control. As simplistic as that is, it is the truth. Showing the public the facts can help them understand the true intent of the push for gun laws; but, maybe that too is simplistic thinking on my part.

  38. Rabelrouser says:

    very.

  39. A Marxist State. Coming to America in short order.

  40. "The tree of liberty, from time to time, must be replenished with the blood of TYRANTS and PATRIOTS." – T. Jefferson! I rest my case.

  41. The problem many patriots have to deal with concerning MMM is that they simply don't know who to trust. The concept is wonderful and inspiring; however, we The Patriots, most devise some trustworthy system to implement this idea. How can we know for sure that the group we are joining isn't made up of thughs, lunatics, FBI agents, HSA agents, etc. out to identify and neutralize us? I realize this thought is off thread, but still… something to think about.
