Like every other president in recent history.
Does Obama actually do real presidential work? It's a yes or no question.
Good to know you have no real arguments against anything I said.
But knowing you, I'm not surprised.
I didn't know the constitution said I had to only own guns "that serve a purpose"...
Fully auto weapons are pretty hard to come by and come with a HUGE tax stamp, if you do pass the extensive background check to get a class 3.
"high cap clips" are no more dangerous than regular sized mags... Look at the CT shooting... 4 handguns, and I'm 100% sure he had more mags filled to continue.
Last, guns are not the issue, they are merely a tool. No different than a machete, hammer, etc. The real issue is society and the people. The Media/Hollywood for glamorizing these shooters, the lack of personal accountability, lack of parenting, and just over all lack of decency...
I own multiple weapons, ranging from AR15's, hunting rifles,handguns to vintage shotguns... They have never killed anything except a couple animals every year... I am a responsible gun owner(like most) and don't feel my liberties and rights should be infringed because of the. 01%...
automatic weapons post-1986 are not legal. Also what 'vest piercing' rounds are you talking about? Hopefully not hollow points or you surely don't understand the purpose of a hollow point.
this is exactly the problem, so many uneducated people have ideas in there head... meanwhile these ideas don't even exist.
you CAN'T be that naive..
Your damn right I could... I'd rather have my tax dollars go to something else rather than a gold super car....
I'm not disputing what the position of President does as a title. Just what he does. The numbers are out there on days out of office, non meetings , etc. not bashing the entire history of the office of Presidency, just Obama
I respect the position of President. I agree it's a tough job. Don't know if I could do it bit I do know I wouldn't want it. Don't understand why anyone does. That being said, if I did decode to do it, I would do it 100% like it is supposed to be done. I think he has made a mockery of the position.
Kind of like now the only way to get prescription drugs is if your doc writes you a script
Days out of office? Are you serious?
Obama took 83 vacation days in his entire first term. In comparison, George Bush took 1,020 vacation days over his two terms.
But, it's good to know you're bashing Obama based on nothing more than your own wild fantasies.
President Barack Obama and his family still have one more day of vacation in Hawaii, and while we call it a , political experts say modern Presidents are never totally on a holiday. Nope, th
Yeah, we would be able to hold off the government with our guns while they have planes, tanks and submarines.
You obviously bring a knife to a gun fight.
Still waiting for an answer to this question from USMCAG
What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.--Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Your initial comments are reflective of a large part of the American society. I personally have no disagreement with those on the left (or those on the right for that matter) dictating or legislating what kind of weapons and weapon accessories the criminal element or the mentally unstable can own, purchase of possess.
On the other hand It does bother me greatly that there is a knee jerk push to make me a criminal because I own an assault weapon or a magazine/clip which holds more than seven or ten rounds.
However, I must take exception with your closing remarks. People intent on causing mayhem, death and destruction will find a means and a method to their madness.
Harris and Klebold attempted to use propane tanks which fortunately did not explode but could have wreaked havoc and significant death at Columbine High School.
McVeigh was responsible for several hundred deaths and injuries by detonating a truck bomb made of fertilizer and diesel fuel in front of at the Murrah Building
More than 2500 were killed at the World Trade Center following the commandeering of planes using box cutters.
Just another opinion for what its worth.
Never said vacation. Said out if office and non meeting. I assume If he's missing security briefings he's not there. Not just playing video games. I admit dumb assumption on my part
How bout we agree to disagree. I don't like him, you like him. Fair enough. This is America and we both have that right to our opinion.
I'm glad you recognize that that's a silly assumption - as President, there are a million and a half other things he could be (and probably is) doing.
This is why vacation days are the barometer - they're the only days where the President is truly out of the office.
EDIT: I'm not going to agree to disagree. You were dead wrong, and now you're trying to propose a compromise. Man up and admit that when you said "the numbers are out there," you didn't know what the numbers were.

.... good call Libs, good call.
The gov't would not use nukes on its own people... If they did, they'd ruin the land for them to rebuild... Not to mention the other citizens would stop paying taxes, stop working and I'd go out on a limb and say the pilot, or who ever is releasing the weapon would not do it.
Without money, the gov't does nothing. Without its people the gov't is nothing...
Drop a nuke? I could probably be agree. But I find it interesting that so many people feel the U.S. armed forces would so readily side with, by definition, a rebellion (regardless of the reasons why).
I think it's more along the lines of not shooting Americans. That, and most of the military is pro 2nd amendment.
Not to get personal but do mind explaining how it went down that day? I'd be shaken for sure afterwards...
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
I'm not trying to back out of anything. You sound like Slick Willie Clinton with your "truly out of office" definition. The numbers are out there to support my point. You added vacation which I never said to support your argument. How very democrat of you. Add what you need to feel better about your point. I was trying to be cordial, you blew it out of proportion. You proved nothing and didn't disprove anything I actually stated.
You man up admit your guy BO sucks and we will call it a day
- Assault weapons should be banned for private or home use. Only military or those issued under military protection, special shooting ranges/facilities for pre-military enlistment should have access to such weapons.
- Handguns, long rifles, shotguns etc oh and those little popper guns I had when I was a kid should remain legal for personal protection and hunting.
Lets say assault rifles are outlawed leaving only outlaws with them after the honest folks turn them in, how does the gov't collect them? Do you simply let peolle keep them and if they're caught with them it gets confiscated and you go to jail? What's the best way? Honest question.....
