Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On February 26 2016, President Obama cited the Kansas shootings during a speech in Jacksonville, Florida, and pledged to keep pushing Congress to pass more gun control.

He did not mention that alleged Kansas gunman Cedric Ford was a felon who was completely barred from purchasing guns or possessing them. Ford faced 100 percent gun control.

Obama also pointed to the February 20 shootings in Kalamazoo, but was mum on the fact that the alleged gunman, Jason Brian Dalton, used a gun he had “registered” and which he owned “legally.”

Ford and Dalton, coming from opposite ends of the legal spectrum, actually prove the futility of added gun control. Yet a pledge for more gun control is exactly what Obama delivered.

According to CBS News:

“These acts may not dominate the news today, but these are two more communities in America that are torn apart by grief,” he said. “And I felt it was important for me to say something today because somehow–as I’ve said before–this becomes routine, these sort of mass shootings that are taking place.”

President Obama added, “Right now this Congress may not have the appetite to do something about it, but we need one that does,” then vowed, “As long as I hold this office, I’m going to keep bringing this up. Even if it’s not getting the same attention that it should.”

Any time you tyrants are feeling froggy enough to try and take them away (because here in America, we will not line up to turn them in), go for it. Just keep this in mind…..come for our guns and WE WILL KILL YOU.

And after we kill all your obedient minions that have no problem obeying illegal orders, WE WILL COME FOR YOU.

We have lists, and know where you are.

Witold, wait, not so fast ! First we have to give them a fair & speedy trial. And when they are found guilty of TREASON, and they will be, they get to be properly TARRED & FEATHERED. All filmed for national and international broadcast. The only details that need to be decided would be what temp the tar should be at, and weather they should be hung, shot, drowned, or gassed. We can maybe leave it up to them to decide.

My uncle was an EMT at Sandy Hook and in no uncertain terms was told flat out not to ever talk about what didn’t happen and that if he did him and his family may have an unfortunate accident. He has since retired and moved to a sunbelt state and is constantly looking over his shoulder. What a travesty that our country should end up like this with insane leaders at the helm corrupt to the core. I have developed an ulcer due to all this and can’t relax ever and know several others that suffer from the same. God… Read more »

David, according to Wolfgang Halbig, 2 Connecticut State Troopers part for Southern States also, and are under similar conditions. According to Halbig, they supplied him with a copy of the 11,000 page “script” that all the actors were to follow. You probably know this already, but for others who don’t, GOOGLE “David Wheeler Played 2 Roles”. There you will see footage of the known actor David Wheeler, or his perfect look-a-like body double, playing the role of a swat team member during the incident. At times he carries 2 rifles, and at other times he seems to have lost them.… Read more »

For those who don’t yet know, James Tracey was a tenured professor at a Florida university. He is also the publisher of “The Memory Hole Blog”. He has been very active in the investigation of the Sandy Hook Hoax, and it seems that because of that, the evil powers that be had a compliant co-conspirator moved in as the head honcho at the university. One of his first actions was to have Tracey removed from his position at the school. Yes, a tenured professor was kicked out on spurious grounds, it seems. This was a very chilling move against free… Read more »

I wonder how the Bozo managed to miss injecting Global Man Made Global what ever the flavor of the month is into the conversation. Since crime supposedly increases with a Full/New Moon, How about a Presidential Decree banning same?

All Marxist dictators have disarmed, or attempted to disarm, the People. Sheikh Hussein al-Obamastan, our Kenyan IslamoMarxist dictator, will not succeed.

Have you noticed that Obama injects his personal opinions into controversial issues where the public is almost always evenly split? His ‘$hit stirring’ over the last 7+ years has only further divided America. A true leader unites the country!

Hey you guys, check the records, Not in American History has a president had more of these type events. Another Obama Record. Since Lincoln, the county has not been more divided than it is now. We are on the verge of an Obama Civil War, We are a divided nation. He has weaken and disrespected our Military,Allowed terrorist in the country and wants to allow more while at the same time wants to disarm the citizens. First let let his secret service detail and his future security detail to turn in their guns and weapons.

Many of these events are staged in order to further the gun control agenda. My first reaction when any kind of shooting takes place is ” false flag until proven otherwise.”

Its not that we don’t care we do. But to hear the same thing over and over wishing it would be true does nothing. While leaving out the important pertinent facts. Helps no one care. Waving the bloody shirt leaving out the facts and implying this or that doesn’t help Mr. Soetoro. Use the truth and some facts please. Maybe then folks might hear the message.
