Sen. Tom Coburn Could Be Biggest Obstacle to Gun Control Changes

If there’s one person most likely to keep new gun-control measures from passing Congress swiftly, it’s Sen. Tom Coburn.

Conservatives revere the Oklahoma Republican for his fiscal hawkishness and regular reports on government waste. But he’s also a staunch gun-rights advocate, and he’s shown a willingness to obstruct even popular legislation, something in the Senate that a single member can easily accomplish.

That mixture could make Coburn the biggest threat to quick passage of new gun-control laws in the aftermath of the Newtown, Conn., shooting that has prompted even pro-gun NRA-member lawmakers like Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., to endorse a new look at how access to the most powerful weapons can be limited.

    its all in the telling when it’s all over! And so fàr the Fat Lay is not singing!

  • rikker45

    These idiots keep talking about the most powerful weapons, but a 223 is not anywhere near the most powerful weapon.

    • Ranchman

      I was just about to post the same thing, Rick. We need to somehow educate all the dummies on what powerful really is. On second thought, they’ll want to ban that too. Anyway, education is the key.

        This is not about education, this is about complete control of the populace and implementing the New World Order, one world government, unimpeded, without the Patriots of this Republic being able to take a stand and fight against a tyrannical government. PERIOD.

  • rikker45

    That’s why I know even patriot outdoors and many others who say they support the 2nd amendment are full of it. They are no better than our so-called elected officials who only represent themselves.

    ALL senators, congressmen and women, the VP and President swore an oath to uphold and protect the US Constitution. Gun Control of any kind is a violation of the Second Amendment as well as a flagrant violation of the DICK ACT. These violations of their oath of office fall under the definition of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” as they violate the civl and Constitutional rights of every citizen of the nation. Section Four, Article Two of the US Constitution states “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” Now bear in mind, spitting on the side walk and drunk driving are Misdemeanors… The point here is as a collective WE MUST FORCE our Conservative and sympathetic Democrat Senators and Congress members to to PUSH the fact that ALL guncontrol legislation is UNLAWFUL AN ILLEGAL and grounds fro removal of any supporting civil officers from office and INDEED, incarceation of them for the violation of OUR Constitutional rigts or even just the attempt of such actions!

    Dont sit on your tails like so many of you did during the election and whine “but I can’t do anything” because THAT is what created this problem to begin with! STAND UP AND BE AN ADULT! STAND UP AND BE AN AMERICAN! STAND UP FOR ONCE IN YOUR MISERABLE LIFE AND EARN YOU RIGHT TO LIVE IN THIS COUNTRY! Contact your Senators And Congressmen and women and remind them of THE LAW OF THE LAND AND TELL THEM THAT WE ARE GOING TO HOLD THEM TO IT ! They are NOT going to club med, THEY WILL GET SUPER MAX right next to the illegals they let come here to rape and murder the natural born citizens! DAMNI STAND UP AND FIGHT!

  • Captain Chaos

    I believe in gun control. I hold by handgun with both hands and when I squeeze off a round, I control where the round is going.

  • Captain Chaos

    THATS RIGHT !!!! The Government is a TRUST !!!!!

    http://www.dailypaul.com/227306/bombshell-constitution-is-a-trust-the-people-are-the-beneficiaries-public-servants-are-trustees

    This is NOT a THEORY !!!

    “Government is a trust, and the officers of the government are
    trustees. And both the trust and the trustees are created for the
    benefit of the people.”

    – Henry Clay

    (Henry Clay, Sr. (April 12, 1777 – June 29, 1852), was a lawyer,
    politician and skilled orator who represented Kentucky in both the
    Senate and in the House of Representatives. He served three different
    terms as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and was
    also Secretary of State from 1825 to 1829. He lost his campaigns for
    president in 1824, 1832 and 1844.

    Clay was a dominant figure in both the First and Second Party systems.)

    Under Trust Law, a TRUSTEE (PUBLIC SERVANT) has NO DIRECT AUTHORITY over a BENEFICIARY (YOU).
