“If you are not going to enforce the laws on the books, then don’t start talking about a whole new wave of new laws”

Obviously Barack Obama has had priorities other than so-called gun control the past four years. Ruining the economy, shoving ObamaCare down our throats, golfing and endless vacations clearly were more important than enforcing already existing gun control laws. And we’re not even touching the gun-running his administration did with the Fast & Furious fiasco.

So with the push for more meaningless laws, some argue that he should focus more on the current laws rather than coming up with even more restrictions against law-abiding gun owners.

Despite his calls for greater gun control, including a new assault weapons ban that extends to handguns, President Obama’s administration has turned away from enforcing gun laws, cutting weapons prosecutions some 40 percent since a high of about 11,000 under former President Bush.

“If you are not going to enforce the laws on the books, then don’t start talking about a whole new wave of new laws,” said a gun rights advocate.

In the wake of the horrific mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Democratic lawmakers have begun preparing a new collection of anti-gun laws, including renewing the assault weapons ban, banning the purchase of high-capacity clips that spring bullets into guns, and tightening rules on who can buy weapons.

Lawmakers are banking that the public will push for new gun controls. But as with other mass shootings, polls find the public split, and blaming the shooter, not the gun. Pew Research Center for the People & the Press on Monday found that public is evenly divided over whether the Newtown shootings reflect broader problems in American society, 47 percent, or are just the acts of troubled individuals, 44 percent.

In the meantime, the “peaceful” left calls for “assaulting” the NRA, whose president has been inundated with death threats. So to object against the lawful use of guns, liberals call for the execution of gun proponents. Then they say they’re only calling for “common-sense” gun restrictions. Notice not a single Democrat is denouncing these threats.

Sure, we can trust them.

    You know how the left wingers are looking a bit nuts, lately?

    Well, it starts making sense when you think of things from a slightly different perspective. I think there’s a reason why the left-wingers are becoming so sure of themselves…and seemingly so excitable. Even those who were once a bit more constrained have been saying things that appear to be insane, on the surface.

    From their perspective, they think their ‘Long March’ through our institutions is almost over. They think they’ve won. The only institutions in D.C. they don’t control is the House and The Supremes…and they have both on a leash. All they need now is a ‘national emergency, ‘ declare martial law…and then take advantage of several laws and Executive Orders put into place over the last decade or two. It’d be nice for them if they could cripple The Second Amendment and take the House and/or The Supreme Court, but that isn’t necessary. Now, they just need the right circumstances. A school shooting? A national disaster? An economic collapse?

    I think they’ve fallen into strategic over-reach, myself. They began their ‘end game’ about ten years too soon.

    Their problem is, there’s two minutes left in the game and they’re only ahead by two touchdowns…and they’ve already started celebrating their win.

    Making laws but not enforcing them is a critical first step in converting a democracy to a tyrrany. These laws will eventually be enforced with extreme prejudice, just not against anyone who is still useful to the tyrant, and only after the tyrant’s power is secure enough that the laws can’t be repealed.

    I hear this same old diatribe again and again. EXACTLY what gun laws are not being enforced.
