Obama Lies: Senate Uses Sneak Attack On Guns

>> Thursday, April 2, 2009

from email:

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama deliberately and repeatedly lied to America's 90 million gun owners across the country when he insisted that he would not try to take away anyone's firearms, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

Now House Republicans are trying to add an amendment to the public lands "Ominous Spending" lands bill that would codify the right to carry concealed weapons in national parks, less than a week after a federal judge blocked a similar proposal.

But, Senate leaders have devised a strategy to use a bill that had already passed the House -- H.R. 146, a proposal to protect Revolutionary War battlefields -- and strip its contents, replacing it with the "Ominous Spending" lands bill.

Because the House already passed H.R. 146, the Rules Committee can approve a closed rule that would block a motion to recommit, eliminating the GOP's best procedural chance to stymie the bill. The chamber would only need a simple majority vote to concur with the Senate amendment.

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, reacting to the "Ominous Spending" lands bill tactic to force more gun control on U.S. citizen's said "the sneak attack on guns reveals the Democrats clear intention to outlaw guns everywhere" "Obama "has been lying to the nation when he says he will not take guns away."

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly placed an injunction on the Interior rule last week. The judge's ruling infringed on the rights of gun owners as drivers in areas such as Washington, D.C., often drive through federal park lands every day. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) said "It's ridiculous for people to be subject to two different sets of regulations simply because their car moved a few feet," Bishop said in a statement. "The judge's decision last week was wrong."

"We warned America that Obama's 'support' for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric," he stated, "and now his support for the "Ominous Spending" lands bill shows Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying."

"Right now," said Gottlieb, "I wouldn't take Obama's word if he said it rains a lot in Seattle. Apparently, law-abiding gun owners have nothing to fear unless they drive to work in Washington DC and park or drive in the wrong place."

What else is new? I sure hope my tax return arrives before guns are completely banned (not likely, guns won't be completely outlawed THAT quickly). Here's the one I'm hoping to buy. It's small, but it packs a decent punch.

Apparently this is an amendment added to a large expansive funding bill for federal lands. And of course Barack Obama is only taking a position on the bill because of this amendment. Don't be a sheep. If the republican position is so uncontroversial and popular then write it in a separate bill, and work to bring that to a vote. Don't attach it as an amendment to other more important legislation and say that anyone stifling the amendment is opposed to gun ownership everywhere. As far as I can tell the president has nothing to do with this legislation. It's all insider/zero sum politics between republicans and democrats.

"Don't attach it as an amendment to other more important legislation and say that anyone stifling the amendment is opposed to gun ownership everywhere."

As if this isn't a typical Dem ploy. Get real, Bent. The president has everything to do with this legislation. Doesn't he have to sign it? If so, shouldn't he then read it first? If so, shouldn't he send it back if it has problematic clauses or additions rather than sign it? If he is serious about protecting gun rights and the 2nd Amendment, he should not support the bill at all until that aspect of it is resolved.

I didn't solely condemn republicans for this. Both parties attach controversial amendments to important legislation for later partisan bashing. It's the lowest of the political maneuvers that have reduced the effectiveness of our legislative branch.

But to say that this amendment should take priority over the funding of our national parks and federal lands is whack. And then of course there's always the probability that the amendment will be stripped out of the final bill in conference committee.

Don't be a sheep.

Eric, That's the kind of gun my wife owns.

Tell me more. Is it worth $316 clams? Do it fire/handle well? Any jamming problems?

I'm surprised you don't have anything to say after the standoff in Philadelphia.

According to friends the shooter "felt President Obama was going to take his guns away."

Do you worry when you write these posts with inflammatory rhetoric that you might be encouraging violence?

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
