Washington DC - -( During a June 10 2014 question and answer session for Tumblr, Obama “praised Australia’s confiscation of firearms.”

National Review Online reported Obama as saying:

Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since.

Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this.

On August 21 Breitbart News reported that Sydney, Australia, launched new gun control operations to try to quell the gun violence that had occurred after the implementation of the “very severe, tough gun laws” Obama mentioned.

And according to the Ballina Shire Advocate, over 9,000 guns were confiscated as part of the new effort, which came after the laws Obama mentioned.

Yet Obama–the President of a country with a 2nd Amendment that defends a God-given right to individual gun ownership and self-defense–is “[praising Australia] for forcefully removing all semi-automatic firearms… from its citizenry.”

    1. What else can be said about that piece of sh1t that ain’t been said a couple thousand times ?

    2. The only thing that african born muslim scum ever said about firearms that was correct came during his first term. He said I have no intention of taking your guns ! He’s damn sure right about that !

    3. As long as Obama is going to be the point man on each raid, I’m good with that. Be sure to add Feinstein, Schumer, Holder, etc, etc to the raid teams.

      I try to be one that doesn’t waste words, so here it is: if that lying communist ba$tard likes Australia’s gun laws SO WELL, he’s more than welcome to go there and partake. The only problem is that Australian government’s official position is that anyone, even muslims, are welcome, BUT AUSTRALIA WILL NOT ADAPT THEIR CUSTOMS TO THOSE THAT RELOCATE THERE. So, I guess in that aspect, the Kenyan Kriminal is sh!t out of luck.

      Emperor Barry may be surprised to find the level of objection that such a notion would reveal.

      It’s going to be nearly impossible to confiscate over 100 million arms from law abiding, God fearing people here in America!!

      PLEASE, everyone, stop the name calling. If you don’t think the other side follows these sites and will use these rants against us you are mistaken. Be factual and to the point.

      In praising Australia the President has proven exactly why gun owners in the US are so adamant and refuse to compromise ever; because liberals have shown, time after time, they absolutely cannot be trusted. Has Charles Schumer, Barbara Boxer or President Obama EVER said of a proposed gun control law “wait, that goes too far. That’s an infringement of people’s rights”? No, they haven’t, because to them no gun control law would ever go too far. We can never trust them. And that mistrust should not be limited to Democrats either. The Republicans and even the NRA has avoided doing all they could when it either wasn’t their idea or didn’t fit their agenda at the time.

      Strict Constructionists and Conservatives are the best chance we have for success.

    9. I don’t know where Obama got his story, but semi-auto has been banned from Australia for years. Must have been some other lie he thought of.

      Guys, read the story the link the story came from…. Guns removed from the org crime, motorcycle clubs and street hoods in a year, that already go’s on in America’s city’s now.
      Guys Read before leaping and do not believe everything you read Left or Right.

      Obama has to get the public’s mind off of the VA and him freeing the 5 terrorists so why not attack guns again. Since he lies about everything else why not lie about guns again? After all it is easier then solving any real problems we have.

    12. Obama praises all things that are “Un-American”

    13. Dave from San Antonio on June 13, 2014 at 3:00 AM said:

      Yeah…”0″ forgot to mention that violent crime that sometimes includes guns…has risen sharply in Austrailia since they had their guns confiscated.

    14. We have the 2A ! Guess the Aussies have nothing like it or an equivalent ! The feds won’t EVER try and disarm the American populous ! They would lose miserably and know it !
