For the past seven lonnnnng years, Americans have watched in disgust and alarm at the many actions President Obama has taken to thwart the Constitution and unprecedentedly expand executive authority. His latest egregious example has taken shape in further eroding Americans’ Second Amendment rights. The President claims he wants to keep Americans safe—but this instead is yet another power grab from an ever-increasingly despotic federal government.
How can Obama, with a straight face, say he wants to “safeguard” Americans?
This disgrace of a president refuses to secure the southern border, which enables violent Mexican cartels, gangs, and terrorists to enter America illegally; he promotes and protects blatantly illegal sanctuary cities, which actively put citizens at risk of violent crime from illegal aliens; he favors the release of violent criminals from prisons in the name of “social justice”; he refuses to acknowledge the epidemic of black-on-black crime, instead blaming “racism” and furthering the agenda of radical left groups like Black Lives Matter; he negotiated with radical Islamist Iranian mullahs and trusted them with disarming their nuclear ambitions (when we now know they have not signed this “historic” agreement); his “strategy” of fighting ISIS and radical Islam consists of calling Americans “Islamophobes”, declaring that “employment” of potential terrorists will counter violent radicalism, going around the world apologizing for America, inviting potential Islamic terrorists into America under the guise of “compassion” for refugees, and giving understanding for the “causes” of radical Islam; he and his administration told our special forces to stand down while four patriots were murdered in cold blood by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi; and his disastrous overall foreign policy has put the entire country at risk.
Instead of proposing solutions that would make our country more secure, we have a president who thinks bulldozing the Second Amendment and criminalizing gun ownership is far superior to, you know, actually dealing with violent criminals in cities with extremely strict gun control laws (cough Chicago cough cough). This is liberals’ dirty little secret. Gun violence is far more prevalent in cities with very tough gun control laws—for a very simple reason. I know liberals think that most criminals are simply misunderstood, or many victims have raaaayyyysism in their DNA (thanks for that little dig, Obama)–but it might shock them to know that criminals don’t actually follow the law! So all of Obama’s and other hypocritical liberal gungrabbers’ actions of closing the mythical “gun show loophole” that doesn’t exist or forcing a mother to do a background check on her son in order to give him her legally-owned firearm will do nothing to prevent one single violent act.
In fact, most mass shootings would NOT have been stopped by gun-free zones or the gun control measures Obama and liberals seek. What MIGHT have prevented the carnage would be more lawful gun owners stopping madmen and psychos and terrorists before they killed even more innocent people. You’ll never hear a liberal admit that though—and these are the same liberals who often own guns or have armed security and bodyguards. Their hypocrisy is astounding but not surprising.
In Texas, we don’t play. Open Carry just became law (where gun owners with a concealed carry license can legally open carry a weapon in a holster). Governor Abbott has already taunted this lawless president to “come and take it”—a reference to the famous Gonzalez flag from the battle of the Alamo. My congressman, a RINO named John Culberson who has a 60% Conservative Review rating and is facing two primary opponents, is attempting to burnish his conservative cred by vowing to defund the Department of Justice (DOJ) over this issue. To this, I heartily scoff. Culberson and many other of his RINO ilk just voted for a $1.1 trillion budget that not only funds the DOJ, but Obama’s illegal alien amnesty, resettlement of Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees, Planned Parenthood, and every other monstrosity Obama and Democrats demanded.
The only way to stop Obama and Democrats’ gungrabbing instincts is to fight back on every level—local, state, and federal. And if you want to give your lawfully owned gun to your son or daughter or cousin or friend—go for it.
Come and take it, Obama.
