Sheriff Maketa (CO): Appalled at President's Claim That 90% of Americans Support Proposed Gun Laws

From Facebook:

I am truly appalled at the president's claim that 90% of Americans support the proposed gun control laws. His speech writer should be fired. He claims these bills would have prevented another Sandy Hook or Aurora shooting, yet he has no evidence to support that claim. Factually speaking, the proposed laws in Colorado would not have prevented one incident, nor would the Federal proposed bills. Don't forget one of the sponsors, Congresswoman DeGette, actually thought magazines were the same as bullets. That's the kind of familiarity those who sponsor these bills have with the subject.

Mr. President, just because the polls tell you what buzz phrases to use to seek your agenda, it does not mean the American people are so naive to follow your continuous record of lies. Remember there are many of us that remember the day you promised to reduce the National deficit by 50%, and you did far more damage and tripled it with nothing to show but more people reliant on your handouts. The people are onto you and we will remember this at election time as you asked in your latest hollywood type speech. Here in Colorado, and at the federal level, your puppets will be removed from office and your legacy will be remembered in history as the ultimate failure based on lie after lie. Yes, your so-called promise of change is more lies, debt, and higher taxes on the middle class to pay for your failed promises. Please tout more successes of Chicago, such as their tax rates, the upside down pension fund, number of homicides, clearance rates or lack of clearances.

Our president even claimed Chicago as justification, for these gun control measures knowing full well that Chicago is the poster child of failure from gun control laws. Violence has increased since Chicago's gun control measures have been in place and they are more restrictive than any other city in this country. In simple terms, it got worse and his creation of so-called "sheep" to fend off the "wolf" have failed. The American people are not the sheep he wants to create. We will be heard and we will not follow his lies that lack scientific validation and truth. My heart goes out to all victims of any violence. Statistically speaking, more people are killed by items other than guns far more often, but our president doesn't want you to know that. Check the Bureau of Justice Statistics for yourself and do it before his administration manipulates them.

The president claims to be speaking for the victims, yet he chooses which victims, because I, as many of you, have witnessed victims from Aurora, Sandy Hook, and even Columbine plea with law makers to not pass measures that criminalize and punish the law abiding citizens for the acts of killers. They demonstrated common sense and showed true courage to stand against the lies and denounce the measures as ineffective. The promises of preventing these horrific acts in the future are misleading and even our own governor has admitted, here in Colorado, the similar guns bills would not have prevented tragedies such as Aurora and Sandy Hook. Our president is an embarrassment to our free society and so are his puppets. The next election will show just that. The president's posturing and agenda were truly seen for what they are, more lies and false promises, most importantly an agenda based on undeliverable promises. How embarrassing he uses the greatest failure in our nations' history for more gun control and people control- that failure being the murder capital of the United States, Chicago. Watch his statement on CNN and ask yourself how he can mention his home town as an example of justification. This is the city that arrested a 56 year old female researcher at the University of Illinois, Chicago, during the week of February 15th for bringing an unloaded weapon to work, in a secured box, to prevent it from being stolen by contractors working on her home. She was trying to prevent a crime and not be a victim. She was arrested and had to post a $25,000.00 bond to get out of jail and is now on suspension from work, pending criminal charges and awaiting trial.

This is what happens when emotionally charged laws are recklessly passed. Law abiding citizens are criminalized. Thankfully a majority of US Congress saw through these proposed lies and did what's right. Now we, the people of Colorado, need to send a message to the governor and the Capitol that we will not be criminalized, nor will we stand by and allow our rights to be infringed and stripped based on lies and unenforceable, agenda driven bad laws. That is why I will not back off this issue and will proudly support my rights, to access to courts, with 37 other sheriffs in a legal action against these ridiculous, unconstitutional laws.

I have been asked by many, what can I do to help? I will ask that you do not lay down, do not go silent; that is what they hope for and expect. Do not let them convert you to sheep. Evil prospers when good people do nothing. Do not let evil prosper. I will not quit and please don't you give up and quit.

Keep in Mind the "Polls" Obama is referring to

Along with the media brainwashing blitz, came the fake polls.

Yahoo's main page had a poll asking if the reader was in favor of new gun laws or not. I voted when there were about 3,000 votes. After voting, I clicked "view results", and was surprised to see that 80% so far had been in favor of guns; only 20% against. That ratio did not match the comment sections, where overwhelmingly no one was buying what Obama and the corporate news were selling. Well, I monitored the "poll" on yahoo's front page all the way up to over 200,000 votes. Every time that I checked, the ratio remained the same! lol What a farse, unfortunately, much of the American population actually believe that garbage.

Furthermore, I used to post quite often on Yahoo, at least trying to dispel some of the most blatant lies. Recently I noticed a change in attitude in the comments, it's all inflammatory one sentence lines playing the democrat/republican paradigm, personal attacks, emotional statements to try to make the fake news real. Also, in looking at my profile on Yahoo and checking my previous comments, where most if not all had way more thumbs up than down.....someone or a group of someone's went through and even my old comments (that obviously nobody would look at now), were all voted massively down! lol Which tells me that someone went down my profile and each of my comments added dozens or scores of thumbs down to them....lol

Freakin' twighlight zone, when will these bassturds get called out for all of the manipulation?

I was apalled at Obama citing Hebrews 12:1 at memorial

...service in Boston today!!

"let us run the race before us".... Some terrorists set a race before us, to endure? When, Monday? On 9/11? Did the founders set a race before us to run? What is he talking about???

So out of context, so REPULSIVE...the audience addressed in the passage is Christians, NOT Americans....

Disgusting!

Hebrews 12:1-2 " Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (2) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. note (3) For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

What a blasphemy, and a fraud this "consoler-in-chief" is to the Christian faith!

Am I the onl one who

found it absurd that he claimed "A minority in congress" voted down the the bill? Last I checked it takes a majority.

90% huh, Mr. President?

Gun sales tell a different story. Perhaps it's 90% who don't believe your lies?

Not even 90% of DEMS support stricter gun-

control laws. According to an April MSNBC/Marist poll: 83% Democrats, 37% of Republicans = 60% of Americans - a majority but NOT virtually all. Of course, that's just one poll. http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/04/03/morning-joe-poll-support-for-...

A different poll (CBS) mentioned in the article did show that 90% of Americans support universal background checks - incl 86% Republicans and 86% of gun-owners. HOWEVER, in contrast to the MSNBC poll, it found that, overall, support for *stricter gun control laws* has waned since Sandy Hook - with 50% of Republicans and only 67% OF DEMOCRATS wanting stricter laws. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57576433/poll-80-of-amer...

The corporate elite own Obama,

and he owes them big time for the rigged election that gained him another term as president. And no doubt they promised him a very wealthy life in a warm climate when he is done. Obama is supposed to give the billionaires club a gun controlled America wrapped up in ribbons and bows, and now he is angry and frustrated and still owes the elite big time.

BUT let us remember the war crimes of Bush and Obama. Payday might come in their lifetime; Bush cannot travel for fear of being arrested.

So every word these guys utter can be taken as manipulation and lies. Only the media brainwashed still listen to these liars.

This is it exactly

When I listened to his angry speech, it was obvious who he was angry at - himself. He failed his masters, and they will extract their pound of flesh from him, one way or another.

I almost feel sorry. In fact, I do - exactly the same level of sorry I tell each and every bug I find in my house, before I lovingly kill it. But, for some reason I don't think his masters are full of love.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
