Carney: Obama Implementing Executive Actions Following Navy Yard Shooting

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday wearily lamented “yet another mass shooting,” this time in the nation’s capital where the debate that raged earlier this year over tightening firearms laws has stalled amid opposition from gun-rights advocates.

The shooting at the Washington Navy Yard came a week after voters recalled two Colorado legislators who supported tougher gun measures, illustrating the strong political headwinds faced by lawmakers seeking to respond to the violence.

Obama, for one, has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency.

In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the president is implementing executive actions and reiterated his commitment to strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows.

I love how the media

I love how the media constantly frames this as, "gosh, if only Barack could get that legislation passed we'd finally and magically be living in a violence free society."

Impeach Obama

... and recall all gun grabbers before these idiot-authoritarians turn the entire country into a crime-ridden cesspool like Obama's Chicago.

IMPEACH OBAMA

We just need to maintain the talking point about arming Syrians

How can this guy be for domestic gun registry/ control

when he sends weapons to people he has no idea who they are

this is an easy political winner

just keep repeating this point (or variations there of) on all blogs - it will catch on

even his liberal followers cant be for this glaring hypocracy

That's easy! He wants the

That's easy!

He wants the Syrian masses to try to overthrow the Syrian government by force. (Especially while al-Assad is heading it.)

He doesn't want the US masses to try to overthrow the US government by force. (Especially while he's heading it.)

Of course, understanding that is easy for US. His liberal followers might have a hard time making that connection. B-)

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Gun Registration

Expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows is backdoor registration of guns. They can not confiscate them if they don't know where they are.

When when we end all Gun Free Zones and allow Open and Concealed Carry every where the violence will end.

I don't take orders

From someone I disrespect. Never have, never will.

On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Obama isn't concerned

with Congress, he has his screwballs working at the UN to implement the small arms treaty.

Wait and see what happens next.

Rarely

350 million in this country... 7.5 billion worldwide... more guns than you can count and these people get in a "twist" about situations like this that considering the above, rarely happens. Collateral damage from sanctions do more harm to more people.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

Carney: Obama Implementing Executive Actions Following Navy Yard Shooting

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday winked and wearily lamented “yet another mass shooting,” this time in the nation’s capital where the debate that raged earlier this year over restricting self defense rights has failed amid massive opposition from the American people.

The shooting of 12 unarmed bystanders at the gun free Washington Navy Yard came a week after voters recalled two Colorado legislators who supported restricting second amendment rights, illustrating the defeat faced by lawmakers seeking to strip Americans of their rights.

Obama, for one, has been powerless to get the 2nd Amendment repealed despite a string of staged mass shootings during his presidency.

Supported by the media’s hyping of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the president is implementing traitorous actions and reiterated his commitment to repeal self defense rights, including profiling and tracking every gun owner and stopping non-traceable gun sales between individuals.

Obama Enters Contest in Hopes of Regaining Popularity

"Today the White House announced that President Obama has accepted a challenge by the Guinness World Records Corporation to become the first President of the United States to tour and play the most prestigious golf courses around the globe while still holding office. This unprecedented feat which will take approximately three years to accomplish and is expected to secure his name in the Guinness Book of Records as the only act Obama has initiated that has the overwhelming approval of the American people. Since the commander-in-chief will be on a long-term hiatus, it is the hope of the world the United States will disengage from its current foreign policy style of BBB negotiations (Bribing, Bullying, Bombing) towards other nations.”

“While the president is outside the country, his wife Michelle will be serving genetically modified frankenfood to all the generals and admirals in the Pentagon cafeteria to promote her ongoing campaign to educate America on the wholesomeness and nutritional value of Monsanto Corporation’s award-winning work in the field of bioscience. This press release is effective immediately.”

Twelve Un-armed citizens die

This is the truth that will not be reported. Except here!

Mission Accomplished:

Obama got a distraction from all his illegal, unconstitutional activities and from his FAILED attempt to attack SYRIA.

OBAMA needs to grandstand in order to save his face from a Political lose against PUTIN and RUSSIA...

Gun Free Zones on the navy yard enabled this...

OBAMA is a tyrant and dictates his decrees as unconstitutional Executive Orders...

Obama needs to be impeached!

Our mantra

Twelve died today because they were stripped of their right to defend themselves in D.C.
Twelve died today because they were stripped of their right to defend themselves in D.C.
Twelve died today because they were stripped of their right to defend themselves in D.C.
Twelve died today because they were stripped of their right to defend themselves in D.C.
Twelve died today because they were stripped of their right to defend themselves in D.C.
Twelve died today because they were stripped of their right to defend themselves in D.C.

Because your title says 'Our Mantra', I took the liberty to repost 'our' mantra on that site.

I hope that you do not find that objectionable, or an infringement.

Awesome, awesome mantra, Barracuda :-) If that mantra does not get the point across, I do not know what will!
