Obama Immediately Exploits Dallas Murders to Promote Citizen Disarmament

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- At this writing, all that’s known for sure is that at least five police officers have been killed and others have been wounded in a sniper attack at a Dallas rally protesting the recent killings of two black men in Minnesota and Louisiana. Reports claim there were at least two killers, that an accomplice(s) is in custody, and that others are being sought. Other reports say one of the killers claimed he wanted to kill white people.

So naturally, never one to be late to a blood dance, Barack Obama signaled the administration’s intent to exploit the killings as an opportunity to keep pushing for citizen disarmament at a time when Republican resolve (an oxymoron in itself much of the time)  appears to be wavering.

“We still don’t know all the facts,” Obama admitted during a special press conference from Warsaw, where he is attending a NATO summit. Still, there’s one thing he’s sure of – Americans being armed is something he wants to do something about:

We also know that when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic. And in the days ahead, we’re going to have to consider those realities as well.

He’s made no secret of wanting to reinstate and expand the Clinton gun ban since before he first ran for president. In the days ahead, monopoly of violence enthusiasts in the citizen disarmament lobby, opportunistic politicians, apparatchik gun owner control professionals and media cheerleaders will be pulling out all the stops to continue spooking the herd to bleat for more “common sense.” And of course the blame for Dallas will be laid squarely at the feet of the NRA.

Don’t be surprised when the information becomes available to find the killers had been on law enforcement’s radar. Don’t be surprised if there are criminal records. And don’t be surprised to see some attempt to transfer their guilt to those who believe in the right to keep and bear arms.

[Note: A screenshot of a Dallas PD tweet misidentifying an armed citizen as one of the suspects has been deleted from this article.–DC]

Anything that impedes that right is, of course, the exact wrong “solution,” especially at a time of heightened danger for all of us. What happened in Dallas shows that a mere handful of determined dissidents can paralyze a city, tie up all law enforcement resources, and capture the focused attention of a horrified nation.  For some, it will be an epiphany, as they realize the power to do the same and more exists in Everytown, and all supposedly omnipotent government can do is react.

Pray that doesn’t spread, although with the upcoming Republican and Democrat conventions, and with well-publicized statements of disruptive intent from all kinds of collectivist groups (and the even more dangerous unpublicized plans), we find ourselves in a most menacing time. Imagine Dallas events emulated in another city, and another. A martial law response, with (at least initial) widespread public demand, suddenly does not seem such an unimaginable possibility. And don’t think those directing such actions will be doing so with the goal of giving seized power back.

Now is hardly the time to give one inch, especially on guns. Now is not the time to lose heart, to falter or to blink. Now is the time to reflect that, if a handful of malcontents can cause this much disruption, is it any wonder the thought of millions of gun owners, in millions of locations throughout the Republic, scares the hell out of those who would control all?

Why do you think they really want to ban the firearms that would be most useful in times of civil upheaval and/or government overreach?

Now is the time for each of us who may be hesitant and unsure to find our courage and resolve.

WE WILL NOT DISARM.

Jack, “An unhealthy dose of fear” drives gun purchases??? An old Jewish adage says, “Fear locks a man in his own house.” There is no reason for fearing anything… but sane, rational, reasonable, responsible human beings certainly must (and do) respect anything that has the capacity to harm us (for instance, in the case of snakes… simply stay away from the sharp end!). That respect for the “capacity to harm” certainly extends to criminal human beings and tyrannical governments. If you are responsible enough (and smart enough) to obtain things like fire extinguishers, automobile insurance, homeowners’ insurance, life insurance, door… Read more »

This must be a site worth paying attention to, because there is more obvious paid Obama-Clinton trollery here than on almost any other website where opinions are expressed that were not scripted in advance by the regime. It still does not look, however, like the marxist muslim from Mombasa, the bribe-taking babykilling bullkdyke and their gun-confiscating retinue of Trojan Horse traitors are getting value for money from all the Chicom and Saudi and Soros money they are paying for internet posts.

This forum is full of uneducated, clueless, racist bigots, who can’t comprehend anything beyond their gut prejudices AND SCRIPTED PROGRAMMING. Their stupid also, because have no f*cking how the gun lobby and their lemmings. like this lacke author pushes articles to sell guns and ammo to dumbasses who think the gun police are going to show up at their door. It’s f*cking hilarious! Millions of gun advocates and owners who don’t fall for this sh*t, are much better off and have alot more money in the bank. If you look at the juvenille, petty and silly comments directed at me,… Read more »

It is very clear that the socialist democrats don’t care about peoples lives, they lonely care about their socialist agenda. It is totally disgusting that they are trying to push there socialist agenda through on the lives of 5 dead Cops and 2 Black men. Listing the eight step to implement a socialist government and that is why they are pushing gun control which to them it means total gun confiscation. Near completion! Right now the Republican Party is so completely at war internally that it may not recover in time to knock out Hillary. That would complete Alinsky’s program.… Read more »

Superwoman you a liar. The biggest problem that libs have is that you think that everyone is as stupid as you are. the problem is that most people are more stupid than you are.

“We don’t have all the facts” when it comes to Dallas, Orlando, etc., in spite of what the perps put on their social media, written in blood on their walls, in their manifestos.

But “the cop is guilty!” without waiting for all the evidence to be gathered.

Agenda-driven, not interested in the actual facts of a situation.

Liberals…”By Any Means Necessary”.

oBOZO is not stupid he is a sorry SOB muslim that knows exactly what he is doing. He wants to declare martial law before the elections and the only way that can happen is for all hell to break loose. The asswipe has put his blacks’s to work to start racial riots so his brown boot army can set fires to white owned businesses and set fire to police vehicles just as they did in Furguson Missouri where men in military outfits were caught on camera settings the fires. He has made it possible by illegal executive orders to take… Read more »

Obama is trying to complete the Alinsky plan for How to Make a Socialist State. One of the ways is to take away the citizens’ guns. They can’t resist the government if they don’t have weapons. That is the phiilosophy that Obama and Hillary Clinton ascribe to. Saul Alinsky was a socialist that both Obama and Clinton studied when in college.

Guns do not kill, People kill. we have the right to bear arms. Criminals will always find guns, so why take them away from innocent people who need them for protection. it will be like liquor , criminals will always find it.

As I approach my 80th birthday I find myself disheartened about what has become of the country into which I was born. So many different potential causes, from atheistic public education to empty-headed talking heads filling us with blather make my head ache at times. Were it not for my faith in God who looks after the “anawim” I would despair of our chances of survival intact as a country. But He is there, and I trust Him to save us from ourselves.

Even if I was damn fool enough to support gun control, I would say this is the wrong time. With last spring’s events in Oregon, the reckless disregard for life shown by some police officers, and of facts by the media and some politicians, we have been pushed closer to the edge of rebellion against real and perceived government abuse of power. We can face the need to make peaceful change, or the government can rely on force to tyrannically crush its opponents. Passing gun control laws at this time would indicate the government has chosen the second path and… Read more »
