Obama gun control tour hits Connecticut next

President Obama will fly to Connecticut Monday to make remarks about the state’s new gun laws. This will be the second time in five days the president has rewarded state-level gun control measures by traveling for in-state appearances.

The President will appear at the University of Hartford to ”continue asking the American people to join him in calling on Congress to pass common-sense measures to reduce gun violence,” according to a White House release Sunday morning.

Connecticut’s legislature passed a 139-page gun control bill last week, which includes universal criminal background checks for all gun sales, creation of a “weapon offender registry,” 10-round limits on ammunition magazines, and other restrictions. The bill is scheduled to be signed later this week by Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

    Connecticut is soon to lose thousands of firearms related jobs to Texas.

    Don’t feel sorry for the workers in Connecticut . . . they voted for this ŜhiŤ when they elected their Governor .

      I am glad they found a new home on their own. I would hate to see where Obama would place them. Malloy is a fool and like all liberals is seriously mistaken about what this country is about.

      So sad in many ways in CT. A friend of mine has to go to CT this week to pack up his GF’s collection of antique and WW11 firearms that her Dad sent home from Germany at the end of the war. Some are magnificent examples of 1800’s handcrafted guns, some are WW11 era german weapons, etc. But to keep them, as she has since her Dad died many years ago, would subject her to instant arrest, fines, and imprisonment. This is govt running totally amok. No more blunderbus’s over the fireplace.

    Mr. President

    From Ted Loubris

    A citizen of the USA for over 75 years

    President Barack Obama

    President of the United States

    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

    Washington, D.C. NW

    Washington, DC 20500

    Dear Mr.President:

    Why are you are you and your fellow Democrats dragging around these poor parents of the innocent children murdered by a psychopath in Sandy Hook, Connecticut? Don’t you care about using these heart-broken people as props so that you can disarm law-abiding citizens? Don’t any of you realize you are prolonging their agony? We’ve been there, and done that, it’s God awful. You never really get over it. No, we won’t discuss it with you or anyone else. We think you don’t really care about all these people and their private Hells.

    Why aren’t you talking about the violent training films made by your supporters in Hollywood? Why aren’t you talking about the thousands of murder, rape and robbery glamorized on television every year? Again, what about video games teaching five year-olds how to become uncaring killers.

    Every mass murderer in this country, going back to the Texas Tower shootings by Charles Whitman on August 1, 1966, have been committed by mentally unstable degenerates. If fact, most were under psychiatric care and were identified as dangerous before their killings. Why aren’t you talking about that?

    The answer is very simple,you want to disarm law-abiding citizens so that We the People can’t resist your march toward a tyrannical one party state with you as Supreme Leader. Isn’t that so?

    So while you are at it, what do you say about what would have stopped the one million murders, ten million forcible rapes and one hundred million violent armed robberies that occurred over the last fifty years in this, once great, country?

    Why could my friends and I take our WW2 surplus high-powered ex-military rifles into high schools, safely across the USA, during deer hunting season in the 1950s? Nothing every happened with million of these kids and guns.

    And why don’t you ask why violent crime was 5% of today’s figures just sixty years ago?

    How about stopping the Democrat propaganda and actually do something about America’s violent crime epidemic? We desperately need to reform what we are doing in in regards to violent crimes. Guns are not the problem. People are the problem.

    Wondering why you and your fellow Democrats have pandered to the violent criminals across these many decades?

    Sincerely yours,

    Paul Loubris

      Very Well Spoken Sir, I applaud your correct statement and as a Fellow Veteran am Proud to have you amongst us. I served in Viet Nam and remember well the days when there was a NRA sponsored and School supported rifle range in the basement of our Junior High School. The days when for the Pheasant opener we brought our Shotguns to School locking them and our box of shells in our locker’s. We went out after school with a few of our Teacher’s. Deer opening was a Holiday and again we went out hunting. We could walk the streets from dusk till dawn without fear of being accosted. during the Summer I worked on Farm’s Easter holiday I worked at a Nursery. Yes the crime rate was basically non existant in my home town of 29,000. Today the children are kept indoor and play video games with extreme gore and violence glorified. The Extreme use of psychotropic drugs to control children’s behavior is appalling at best. The street’s after dark seem to be owned by the drug dealer’s and prostitutes, yes even in a fairly small town of 25,000 now as jobs have disappeared and families have moved elsewhere. The Democrat party well my father I am sure who was a WWII vet is surely rolling over in his grave. This supposed to be president has not stopped campaigning since he started in 2007. I cannot support him or the Democrat party. Sadly the Republican’s seem to want to morph into Democrat v2.0 to get votes. They have forgotten the oath they took upon entering office and I believe to them it is now just a ridiculous ritual they have to perform and nothing more. CT. is going to lose thousands of jobs and people with the Draconian gun law’s they wrote on the backs in the blood of dead children. New York our governor thinks he is untouchable because he is a Cuomo and wrote laws in the middle of the night forcing them thru the legislature in 20 min’s time. We the People are Standing up reaffirming our oath’s to the Constitution and will not rest till the Wrongs forced upon the people are corrected. This so called president has committed many crimes against the constitution and the people of our once great nation. he will be Impeached or if necessary forced from office. The same fate awaits those that follow lock step with him. His unconstitutional creation of a Civilian Army loyal to him alone is Treason. He will fall as will the rest of the criminal’s in our legislature’s and Court system. I do not condone nor advise the use of violence that will result in perhaps million’s of death’s in this country, but if that is what it takes to refresh the tree of liberty then that course will be taken when forced upon us.

      A letter to Obuthead is a huge waste of time. Additionally, addressing this fraud as President is unacceptable from anyone who “KNOWS” this scumbag is a fraud. Just because he has gotten into this office does not make him President, much like me putting on a white smock and hanging a stethoscope around my neck doesn’t make me a doctor. The only way to properly address this fraud is “Imposter-In-Chief”
      Your time would be better spent reloading ammo!

      VERY well said, sir. Thank you for your letter (which unfortunately the president will never read). Thank you for your service to our nation.
      I just want to know why the president (imposter or not; he holds the office) is running around the country campaining instead of staying in Washington and doing the job he was hired to do.

    Remind the islamist-in-chief of what happen on Dec. 29, 1890 at wounded knee after the government disarmed the people. Death is forever, either in hell or heaven it’s a choice and the government has no right to decide for you. Live Free or Die when they come or on the plantation of cool-aid drinking masters of all races and colors.

    Just one more stop on his campaign tour. Maybe the Constitutional lawyer should read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and Bill of Rights again. It might sink into his brain cavity that the reasons AGAINST these dumb ineffective laws are right there in black & white.

      The Marxist/alinskyite in chief reads the Constitution in the Basterdized vision of what the corrupt power hungry Supreme court did to it in the 1930’s and 40’s. the fruit’s of this are being beared now and the fruit is a bitter taste od socialism, communism and Islamic terrorism. This is the vision of our non eligible POTUS born to a Kenyan national in 1961. The power broker’s of the world order and the petty puissant dictator’s that occupy that eyesore in NYC have been attempting since the inception of the U.N.
      Common Sense Gun Control is proper instruction in the use care and safety of Firearm’s at a young age not planting them in front of the TV with a violent video game. The school forces children into ‘counsiling’ and force feeds them psycotropic drugs to control there minds and teach them the socialist ‘dream’ of Obamination

    He’s a Marxist and doesn’t matter what anybody says this is about confiscation of guns. This will again have to go to the corrupted supreme court. The Constitution is the law of the land no matter what they do. Contact Rand Paul & Ted Cruz and these other Republicans to filibuster. Ask them to bar none. It’s time they started calling the obama regime communist and confiscation is the name of their game. Tell them to talk about 90million people out of work and now obama’s trying to put another industry out of work. They need to bring up Fast & Furious the schame obama/holder tried to use for gun control. They need to have a back drop of people that lived in Communist China & Russia And how they took their guns.
    Bring the parents from Newtown that lost children but do not support gun control. There’s 11 families. It’s now or never. We need to put it all on the line. Thus brings lots of media and the truth needs to be out. Start stirring it up.

    I hope they realize that their stupidity and anti Constitutional stand is going to cost them around 400 jobs. They don’t have the brains God gave a duck. I am wondering when the mad Marxist is going to try and govern rather than stay in campaign mode. Now he is campaigning for his violation of the second amendment bill. I can’t wait for the next 3.5 years to pass so we can dump this chump and return to being a free nation instead of a Marxist one.

    • Alfred Ferguson

      I fear that the next 3.5 years will only serve to further cement in place the “chump”– President “Rat-ears” as he is called by friends in Prague (Czech Republic; he elicits virtually no respect amongst any Europeans that I know.) A Marxist he may be–probably is, at least in a trifling, fashionable “academic” sort of way. But dedicated Marxists tend to be hard-headed brutes; this guy is a cream puff–a piffling little man–a spoiled, piffling little man. Just a loud, braying talker–like a carnival side-show barker.

        If he came on to heavy handed he would lose the support of to many people therefore he has to be sneaky about it for right now. What I think may be cemented in is the fact that his policies do not work. Many people I know who supported him and his agenda are now backing off seeing a myriad of problems with his agenda. His gross incompetence should drive the people further to the right where a hard core conservative would be far far more palatable than if his agenda worked.

    You know Barry soetoro is lying when he says he is not out to confiscate your firearms.
    He, Barry, has lied about Obamacare when he said “if you like your present insurance, you can keep that insurance”.
    He, Barry, has lied about if you give me $878 billion the economy will turn around. We have 90 million people living in poverty and 47 million of those on some kind of government aid.
    He, Barry, has lied when he said he didn’t know bill ayers and bill ayers did nothing to help his campaign to be elected president, even bill ayers says he had a hand in starting Barry on his way to the president.
    Barry is out to collect all firearms if the senate and congress will let him and if not he will use EO to do the job.
    Barry needed a pat on the back about his gun grab scheme so he goes to Colorado and Connecticut. The people elected these gun grabbers and the people are the only ones who can turn it around. Use the recall legislation on those governors.

    When Obama sends the U.N. to collect guns and do what they want to with the family. Then the good people of Connecticut will relize that were set up for the real kill. Sorry for what a mentally ill person did to little children, but by taking away guns to protect themselves, doesn’t solve the problem.

      A gentleman (father of a murdered son at Newtown) on Megan Kelly this noon (EST) and is one of the parents who is dead set against this BS. As he asked, (with tears in his eyes) when is odumbo going to propose any legislation to enforce and find out why the mentally insane were omitted from all proposals. He was crying when he stated “this will happen again” since there is nothing but the same old tired rhetoric about infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens. God bless this man. One of the good people in CT left that has a brain. But, you won’t see him in any of the imposter in chief’s TV clips. For those of us old enough, this is Hitler on steroids. God Save America.

    Body Order has about much sense as a retarded clam.. He has no vision of reality if all the firearms were confiscated. The country would be entirely taken over. Leaving doors open to put America completely gone.. Maybe he believes he would be completely safe from any circumstance. He has NO real friends with anyone in the middle east… They know he is a complete joke, BUT he is doing a great job destroyng America within, the economy, defense, religious freedom, and our Constitional rights.. To him its a roll of toilet paper…. This is the Worst example of leadership I have ever, ever seen…. He should be institutionalized… give him a rubber room…

    I would love to hear HOW he/they are going to reduce gun violence. I would like to know how violence can be reduced in any fashion. In fact, I would like to meet obama one on one, but I am certain that will never happen. This guy is as dumb as they come. Besides all that, I would love to know exactly where in the constitution it gives him, Reid, or any of them the right to establish gun control measures. Please direct me to the section, exactly.

    Because of your ill doing trying your best to destroy America barack hussein obama, millions of guns has been sold to law abiding citizens. The worst thing to ever happen to America was when by fraud you were elected to office.

    We had over four years of your constant lying and blaming others for the trouble we’re in now do to your ignorance on the economy. Your more destructive and costly than all the wars we’ve had and all the natural disasters too.

    Your anti God, anti America, anti our Constitution, anti our Military, anti White, anti Christians.

    The only thing you love is your own sorry butt and to hell with everyone else.
