Obama Campaign Speech: I Believe in the 2nd Amendment, I Won’t Take Your Rifle or Shotgun Away!

obamaWith the Obama administration attacking the 2nd amendment and American’s Constitutional right to bear arms, we thought it would be apropos to bring back a clip from Sep 9, 2008, while Obama was campaigning in Virginia, in which he stated he believed in the 2nd amendment and would not take American’s guns away:

I just want to be absolutely clear, alright? So, I don’t want any misunderstanding when y’all go home and you’re talking to your buddies and say, “Ah, he wants to take my gun away.” You’ve heard it here. I’m on television, so everybody knows it. I believe in the second amendment. I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.

  1. He told the truth, in the Birr Crinton way. He won’t be the one taking them, he has employees for menial tasks like that.

    • No truly he thinks: I can’t do more than 4 years in the office so lets do nothing just act as if I was working. Sometimes a debate, sometimes a law, then the opposite. After that I’ll get a good salary for not coming to meetings in some of the companies that I bailed out. For the moment I can enjoy lights and cameras. How’s my hair?

  2. Here’s an article which should be a ‘must read’ for everyone on both sides of this argument. Drugs like Paxil are linked to a significant number of these mass shootings and unprovoked violent acts:

    • See his patronizing caricature of mainstream America as he uses lingo like ”y-all” and ”buddies”.
      Like all progressive elitist Liberals, he has contempt for the 99%. In his first campaign he talked of the middle states as gun and bible toters. Funny how its in the America between the Coasts where all the industry and production that gets done, Meanwhile California, Washington and Wall St. bring debt, government and corruption to the table.

  3. Not sure what all the fuss is about with Obama… you already jail 1 of every 15 adult black males in the country (yes, these are the facts)… odds are he’ll be chillin’ in the crowbar hotel (traces of weed in his ashtray perhaps) before the end of the year.

    • So the reason I have never been arrested in my life is because I am not a black male?

    • @SRV … and, ahhh, what group was it that made non-violent, victimless private behavioral choices onto ‘crimes’? Let me guess … wasn’t that … ahhh … oh yeah, GOVERNMENT! Yeah, that’s right THAT’S who usurped un-Constitutional authority over innocent Liberties more generally exercised among colored folks than others. As I recall, it was just before instituting a ‘program’ of government paid abortion principally aimed at reducing the population of those VERY SAME COLORED FOLKS!

    • @PatFields “Colored Folks”… really?

      Yes it was the government… and very likely the “government folks” you voted for, because they were tough on crime; forced women into invasive, medically useless procedures in order to “qualify” for legal abortion; defended heath insurance companies from the evils of the sinister Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; defended corporate oil subsidies; denied climate change in defense of the corporations that suck profit out of the economy and refuse to pay for the damage they inflict on society (cheaper to just pay off congress); blocked relief to disaster victims in desperate need of help; fought to the death to save tax cuts for the top 1.5% (somehow I doubt you’re there yet… actually, I was before I retired, but in my country that doesn’t make you a billionaire… we pay taxes supporting effective social services, have very little crime, and no cost world class health care for every citizen); gutted the already weak financial regulations on orders from their Wall Street masters; and of course defended the profit of the corporate arms industry irrespective of the cost in lives… (just a small sampling of the “Patriot” agenda… you know, that “grassroots” movement that just paid Dick Army $8,000,000 to go away… really cool uniforms at the public gatherings though)…. you’re being played by big money Pat!

    • @SRV … you really don’t get it, do you? Well, maybe this’ll help clear the fog a bit.
       
      “When through the process of law the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.” – 1924 US Banker’s Association Magazine
       
      You see, It’s all a Punch and Judy Puppet Show. While you’re standing in the ‘public square’ transfixed by the antics of the puppets up there on the stage, their pals are picking your pockets clean of every drop of sweat from your brow. And you actually thought slavery was abolished … didn’t you?
       
      Oh, and by the way, I’m NOT ALLOWED to pretend to ‘vote’, because I won’t allow them to define my Person as corporate, nor record me as domiciled in their federal district.

    • @PatFields
      Which gets us back to the subject… what do you think the gun control paranoia is about? It’s about divide and conquer, and you’re leading the cheers?
      The government is not the problem… it is the corporate takeover of government through their bought and paid for cronies (in the Tea Party… follow the money) using government bashing as a smoke screen, while they privatize any and everything (as Scott Walker did for the Koch Bros in Wisconsin) to feed their insatiable appetite for profit… you’re being played by big money Pat.

    • @SRV … Dude you’re incorrigably brainwashed in this false-choice Party crap. Conversation’s over.

      Parting comment … “Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.” –5th Plank of the Communist Manifesto

    • @PatFields … “the Commies are coming, the Commies are coming!”

    • @SRV
      despite the seemingly non-PC reply from @PatFields
      you are obviously bringing rocks and fists to a Nuclear War of the Wits…
      might wanna rethink that one, bubba! ;) Just Sayin’

    • that’s all you got?

    • @SRV (I thought you were Dead!)
      I got plenty. 
       
      In fact, I got the email before you deleted the post about “All Hats, no Cows, CowBoys…” 
      You see, our email system notifies immediately and I got that. Funny, actually! You made 
      a good point somewhere else on this topic, about being fooled by Big Money. This site is 
      ALL ABOUT BIG MONEY FOOLING EVERYONE!!! You are even more oblivious, it is not just 
      the Right Wing, but the LEFT, TOO! I think you can catch on, but an open mind is necessary. 
       
      As for the “colored folks” reference, I note the irony when a conservative-oriented person says that, and is 
      called out, but if a Re-Tard (progressive/Regressive Lib-Tard = Re-Tard) says “Person of Color” they are 
      applauded for being “whatever”.  I prefer color-blind, it’s CHARACTER that Counts, but I am however, 
      about 1/16th to 1/8th “colored folk” or “person of color” or whatever you prefer.  What PF said is TRUE, and as I took his point, 
      he was referring to ALL the groups that largely voted for O. As much as I hate it, these RE-Tards label Blacks, Browns, 
      “Red and Yellow, Black and White, they are precious in his sight” as long as they VOTE!  I have seen several (LOTS) of folks of 
      similar ethnic background on YouTube “BURNING OBAMA TO THE GROUND” Verbally because they ARE NOT FOOLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      I even (sad to say) voted for Obama the first time  ”All my SD peeps can inquire, I will answer” 
      so it is hardly a question of racism. Most here are not even close to racist. We generally discourage that. But not all 
      “NON-PC” comments are racist either. Not by a long shot. 
       
      Many of the “white folks” here (not sure who all is…) would GLADLY VOTE FOR A LIBERTY-MINDED Candidate of another 
      ethnicity. I know this group pretty well by now. This place is about BAD MONEY, as you did notice, but not all BAD MONEY is 
      perpetrated by the “Evil Right”. There is a large input by the RE-Tards. (remember, REgressive LibTARDS) and these folks are 
      ALL BANKERS and their CRONIES. IMO, the biggest enemy is the REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT, they pose as “Fiscal Conservatives” 
      but are actually just subverting the efforts to oppose this runaway spending in the federal government. 
       
      SO, to sum it all up, I either Welcome You, (SRV) or Warn you. The warning is: If you cast yourself in the roll of a TROll, 
      then be prepared to be roundly and soundly IGNORED
      That’s what happens to those annoying little under-bridge creatures around here! 
      Or are you just a repackaged TRuth Over l-lype ?  ;)
      Either way, HAVE FUN! 

    • Oh boy, this is getting ugly… lol!
      The one I deleted was aimed at another site (full of gun loving cowboys… was that you?)…
      Anyway believe it or not, we may have some common ground here. Of course it’s not left / right, just that the right seem to be conned into fighting for what the money wants more than the left (IMHO). The Tea Party drives me absolutely nuts… a “grassroots” movement fully funded by the likes of the Kock (sic deliberate) Bros… of course almost everyone in congress is a slave to campiagn money on both sides. Tricky I know, but you can navigate between the full blown control of the international banking cartels and the issue specific battles between right and left… my focus is on liberal issues (education, social support of the poor, etc) and of course there is a clear difference in those areas (to keep the masses confused and divided… perhaps and even likely, but kids do go to bed sick and hungry depending on who wins the battles).
      Too bad about the “all hat, no cows” thing (it was a good one)… just trying to stir the pot and get some of the gun fanatics (I think it’s especially crazy) thinking… I firmly believe the gun lobby has ginned this one up (long story) over decades in a for profit only game (they could not care less about the 2nd Amendment)… and a lot of people die.
      Nuff said… right back at you on the fun thing!

    • @SRV:
      wow, I Missed this reply, so…
       
      Hey Man! I’m beginning to take a liking to you!
      You got GUTS! And a sense of humor.
      As for the cowboy comment, I MIGHT BE!!! lol
      Actually, I’m a newby gun owner, my USMC son finally talked me into it, and I kinda went overboard  ;)
      But the other side of this “gun grab” is: Lots of political TALK and little ACTION, but gun sales GO PARABOLIC!
      Like we keep waiting on SILVER and GOLD to do. Many in real life (IRL) say that Obama is
      GUN SALESMAN OF THE YEAR ALLTIME!  But it seems to fit with the rest of the conspiracy theory. 
      I hope and pray that we are not in for what we think we are in for, that would make my “new millineum” 
      JUST GREAT! Silver and Gold will just be a good long term investment, as I bought in UNDER this “new bottom” 
      price and am happy as a CLAM that I did! 
      As for having FUN, I still am!

       PS: I like Guitars! Used to play… A LOT!

  4. Hitler made similar comments. Look, Obama is a LIAR.  How do I know?  Easy.  If his lips are moving, he’s lying!

    • SRV , the commies are NOT coming , they are already here and really , You TOVARYSCH , You are brainwashed beyond any help or belief . Good luck , because You will need it , either way , if you survive all the the way to the new regime .

    • @trejin

      Brainwashed… rotflmfao at the irony!
      I thank you for your concern.

  5. It does not matter to the Libs if Obama keeps his promises or not.  The fact that Obama has a brown skin color is the only fact that matters to a Lib.  Good job performance is not valued or required.

  6. That’s why the Lying Marxie Kenyan Usurper Alien Cockroach is also known as the Liar In Chief.

  7. Obama said he wouldnt pass the NDAA but did when he felt no one was looking (New Years Eve). He will attempt to weaken the second Amendment for the next puppet president who will finish the job. I dont believe they will want to challenge the second Amendment before 2016, because the military has so much on their plate as it is.

    All this second Amendment talk has inspired me to set up a guys night out at a gun course and shooting range. Never held a gun so this should be interesting. Exercising my right to bare arms.

    • I will cut the sleeves from one of my sweatshirts and put it on so I can proudly “bare arms”.
       
      After that, I will get my holster, put my S&W Mdl 19 in it, strap it on, and proceed to “bear arms”.  
       
      LOL!
       

    • @Ed_B lol! It could have been worse I could have typed Beer Arms :)

    • Hey, there’s an idea!  I like it!  A beer in each hand!   :-D
       
      Just messing with you a little.  It always looks wrong to me, no matter whether I use “bear arms” or “bare arms”.  In one case, I can just see the heavily muscled and furred BEAR arms somehow grafted onto a human and in the other case, it is disrobed arms.  Neither seems quite up to the task at hand.  Oh, well.  Language isn’t always up to the task of conveying what we really mean.

  8. Uh, while no one was looking the US Citizenship and Immigration service has removed the Right to keep and bear arms from the list of the rights of US Citizens. It is still listed in the Citizen’s Almanac but it is in pdf and I guess not as easy to change!
     
     

    • @Gaston Hobbit you didn’t know that a ‘citizen of the United States’ is totally separate from State Citizenship? Well, HERE’S a lesson in Law, you’ll like …
       
      “Privileges and immunities clause of Fourteenth Amendment protects only those rights peculiar to being citizen of federal government; it does not protect those rights which relate to state citizenship.” Jones v. Temmer, Federal Supplement, Vol. 829, Page 1227 (1993)
       
       You see, such Person (civil standing) is devoid of all natural rights, but holds only statutorily granted civil rights as conditioned under Article IV, Section 3, clause 2 of the Constitution of the UNITED STATES.
       
      “The right to trial by jury in civil cases, guaranteed by the Seventh Amendment…and the right to bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment…have been distinctly held not to be privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment …and in effect the same decision was made in respect of the guarantee against prosecution, except by indictment of a grand jury, contained in the Fifth Amendment…and in respect of the right to be confronted with witnesses, contained in the Sixth Amendment… it was held that the indictment, made indispensable by the Fifth Amendment, and the trial by jury guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment, were no privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States, as those words were used in the fourteenth Amendment. We conclude, therefore, that the exemption from compulsory self-incrimination is not a privilege or immunity of National citizenship guaranteed by this clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.” Twining v. New Jersey, 211 US 78, 98-99
       
      So, next time you’re in an ADMINISTRATIVE court and the ‘tryer’ tells you not to yammer on about the Constitution and your ‘rights’ under it, tell the jerk his presumptions of your citizenship is all screwy.

  9. The old magician trick look over here while I do this over there. Can’t win a war overseas so start one here. That way prople won’t be able to figure out they are Broke. I really don’t think we should get caught up in this gun thang. Yes, there are roving teams of Assasins. Yes there will be another false flag. But No, the Economy will not recover and Yes Silver and Gold is a good idea. That’s about all I focus on. That and live in an extremely boring little town.

  10. interesting he covers rifle, handguns and shotgun, i suspect he is signalling that assault rifles and various other guns are open slatter and he will confiscate them ….

  11. In my  mind, the overriding theme here is one of controls imposed by bankers.  Re Pat’s quote of the American Bank 1924, whether the bankers are in this country or another, they are in league together with the same mentality and plannings.  To me, bankers are like cockroaches.  They crawled out of the slime long before we walked upright.  They will be around long after we’re gone. They are very difficult to kill and if you see one, there are 100 lurking in the woodwork.  As a former banker and recovering cockroach, I think it would be wiser to ‘follow the money for the real story’ as the journalists say, rather than disputes over items that are worthy of debate but do nothing to enhance our survival.  As much as  I like a lively debate, I like to get out on the range and zero my rifle.  Stacker X  where do you hale from?  If your local, like near Nevada, drop on over and I’ll set you up at our local range, blasters, ammo and targets on me.
    One word of caution, the end with the hole in it points away frm your face.  Just sayin’

    • AG!  You’ve hit upon an answer that I have searched for years to find.  I always wondered what the REAL reason was for banning DDT.  Now I know.  It is fatal to bankers, even in minute quantities, so it MUST go.  ;-)
       

    • First they want gun registration and now precious metal registration?  I’m sure the government would only use such information in our best interests, because as we all know: Your Government Loves You.  Sounds reasonable, after all, only ‘terrorists’ buy guns and gold anyway.”"
       
      Uh, yeah.  Dang those terrorists, anyway.  BTW, just what IS a terrorist these days?  ANYONE who disagrees with the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful gubmint?  It is looking more and more like that, isn’t it?  Like they say, “to a man with  a hammer, everything looks like a nail”.

  12. Just another lying politician, one who lied that he was a citizen to begin with.

  13. The picture of Il Douchebag in the powder blue uniform is hilarious… and scary at the same time!  He looks so comfortable in that regalia.  The only things missing are a large and heavy gem-encrusted gold crown and scepter.  :-/

  14. I’m thinking coronation too, Ed B.  Brass chamberpot or spitoon covered with gummi bears.  “Here’s your crown Mr President”
    Oops, I forgot to empty it.
    I’d gladly face a firing squad with a smile on my face if given opportunity like that. Maybe this post will earn me that distinction. Don’t Drone me, Bro.

    PS Ed B My comment on not interfering with a person’s path to heaven is just my pledge not interfere with a person’s choice of religion. I’d defend a person’s choice of religion with the same vigor as I would defend the right of free speech. My phrasing was a bit off.

    • Not a problem AG.  I’m pretty sure I knew what you meant, just stirring the pot a little.  ;-)
       
      Loved the line about “not emptying it first”!  Classic!!  :-D
       

  15. What can he do when he issues his EO and the only reaction is a million You Tube videos all telling him to KISS MY @$$! :-)

    • Maybe there is an ancient Chinese saying out there that covers this situation.  Something along the lines of “Man wrapped in self make very small package” or some such?  
       
      Leaders KNOW that they cannot lead people to a place they are not willing to go.  Tyrants, on the other hand, do not care where people want to go or what they think and are only concerned with forcing them to go there.  Like the lid forced too tightly upon a pressure cooker on the stove, it’s gonna blow at some point!
       

  16. I’m still laughing over the picture of spit polishing a spitoon to a golden luster.  Then gluing on some M&Ms, gummi bears and red vines.  real creative designs.  This douche would be so wrapped up in his little narcissistic world he’d think it was the real deal.  He really would like to be Queen, ah, I mean King.  It reminds me of a scene in Marx Brothers, King of Freedonia and the crown was a funky POS bit of metal.   The Cowardly Lion and his brass medal of bravery.   Then fedexing it to the White House just before his annunciation or coronation, whatever,  This whole shebang is such a farce.  Whether Hussein or Mittens was elected, there does not seem much light between them. 
    Like the Chinese say, 10 lbs of duck crap in a 5 lb dim sum cooker

Speak Your Mind
