GOP Responds to Gun Grab

Here are a few of the more powerful responses to President Barack Obama’s gun control agenda from leading Republicans.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry: “The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there. Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.

“In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media – to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children – disgusts me personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be, nor will it be, abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”

    Obama’s 23 points are just plain stupid. Not one of them would have prevented the mass shootings lately. He did not address the violence in movies, TV or video games and very little about mental health. He knows better than to go up against Hollywood, as he would be biting the hand that feeds him. Why is it everytime a tragedy happens, the innocent law abiding individuals always get screwed. I know one thing for sure that a criminal will get a gun one way or the other. Just look at the statistics regarding the toughest gun bans, Chicago, and Washington DC. Even Connecticut has very strict gun bans and did it stop Newtown. I feel for the 26 families there but I also grieve for the 500 people killed in Chicago last year and a lot of them were kids, maybe not as young as Newtown, but nevertheless kids. He has been working on this ever since Fast and Furious. You can look up some of the records as that was the main purpose of Fast and furious, the chaos it would cause and then they could ban guns.

      His points are stupid because HE IS Stupid.

    • Fran says:

      Obama is Not stupid…he has a plan to take over America and turn it into a Socialist
      regime….and is taking the opportunity of a Mentally ill person at the Sandy Hook location. The problem is don’t think that Obama is stupid…he knows what he is doing.
      and it is offensive to the American way founded on the Constitution.

    • 2War Abn Vet says:

      No single gun law, and we have over 20,000 of them, has ever stopped a criminal
      intent on causing havoc. Passing additional laws will only serve to disarm honest people. Nothing government does will have any effect whatever on criminals. This charade is all a Democrat scheme to subserviate the American people.

    • Wild Thing says:

      Some of the over 500 killed in Chicago last year were as young as the victims of Newtown. With obama and his fellow miscreants using the Newtown shooting, and then using children as props during his presentation only serves to cheapen the deaths of those in Newtown. You would think somewhere along the line obama would show some remorse and shame for the things he has done.

    • moonwinx says:

      Obama’s moves wern’t stupid. They were only step 1 in the path to slavery. Step 2 will be confiscation and step three. . . Obama will declare himself Dick tator and we are finished.

  2. David Horton says:

    Well said Governor Perry. I love Texas. We have people here that make sense and protect our God given rights. Stupid people do stupid things.

  3. Remington 870 says:

    Quit evident the Dems were as happy and giddy following Newtown. Almost as if someone within our government helped architect this murderous rampage to disarm White America. White Americans are Obama’s and Democrats worst enemy. Why? We believe in America and want this country to function in accordance with the Constitution.

    • Impeach them.all says:

      It was all orchastrated for a gun grab so was the Aurora Shooting, Our Government is downright dirty, please do your own reasearch. Chemtrails, Haarp, I an also saying they created the hurricane before the election, Chuck Schemer is also very dangerous, to much, but weird how the Attorney for the Aurora Shooter, showed up in pics as one of the parents of Sandy Hook. They are also messing with the weather, Obama had bioengineers working to manufactor storms, How come that hurricane happened right before the election, oh ya and those voting machines conveinently came from Chicago with the best buddy of Obamas Chuck Schumer . Go figure.

    • larryincamden says:

      This is not a race thing, there probably 10 times as many white Progressives as there are blacks and most of the black progressives are actually just being conned by the white Progressives.
      I think they were refered to as “useful fools”

      • Remington 870 says:

        Unfortunately Obama is a racist whose only use for his circle of whites is they are communist/progressives. If you haven’t read any of Obama’s books, do so. You will agree he does not like whites, christians and certainly is unAmerican.

        • larryincamden says:

          I do not have to read his books I know where he is coming from by listening to him.

        • moonwinx says:

          He don’t even like the Blacks! He conseders himself above them.

        • Remington 870 says:

          Good point! How many dark blacks are in Obama’s inner power circle? Holder, Rice, Jarrett, are supposed to be black, but are whiter than I am. Go figure.

        • Riverdweller says:

          That is because he is only 6.25% black. The rest is 50% Caucasian and 43.75% Arab.

      • Wild Thing says:

        The white, hispanic, and black progressives are just useful idiot tools to obama.

      • moonwinx says:

        The term was “useful idiots”. And they certainly are that.

    • Wild Thing says:

      Perhaps they did. The Aurora shooting, then the Newtown shooting do seem to have happened at a rather convenient time to farther obama’s agenda.

      • Remington 870 says:

        Whereever nazi Soros is involved, believe the worst can happen. Obama is just a talking head being manipulated by evil powers grabbing for One World Order. Killing innocents is a form of ‘collatoral’ damage for these people.

      • moonwinx says:

        Personally I think the shooting was a set up deal kind of like Fast and Furious. they probably got some mentally deficiant guy and either promised him drugs, money or whatever to do the shooting. It’s been done before and the liberals are not stopped by conscience either.

  4. Jere Smith says:

    I wish I was back in Texas!

  5. Oldman66 says:

    I have to ask the Republican’s one question. When in Gods name are you folks going to Impeach this President for violating the Constitution and the Bill of Rights ???? Do you have the guts to do so?

    • larryincamden says:

      No many of the Republican hierarchy are Progressives too

    • Riverdweller says:

      Even if they do it won’t go anywhere in the Senate………..Unlike the republicans, the democrats don’t seem to eat their own very often.

  6. Dick Mahany says:

    Thank you Gov. Perry. That is the best answer I’ve heard to date.

  7. WML/CPL says:

    God Bless Texas and Governor Perry. Thank you for standing up for We The People.

  8. larryincamden says:

    This was one Republican not the GOP

  9. Wild Thing says:

    Good for you Governor Perry. I am proud to be a citizen of Texas!

  10. Fiesty says:

    As with the woman defending herself and her child with a six shot revolver, even having shot the man five out of six times, he was still going strong! THIS is where the need for large magazines are needed! The thugs breaking into homes today are full of drugs that make them almost impervious to pain. If that guy had a partner with him, the woman and her child would probably not be alive to tell the tale today. Sadly, I have yet to hear ANYONE making this point.

  11. Douglas says:

    Ok, normally I never go to a Democrat web site…generally they don’t allow opposing comments…it’s our way or no way are you going to comment. But I just came from Democrats. and they have various surveys or petitions on various current issues…one…Stop The Gun Madness….they had 2 for a required 20,000 names on a liberal site 2 people signed. On tell Congress Control Guns (not exact wording), required names for petition 30,000 they had 1,200 maybe. Other petitions of similar context and similar results….I guess my Question is…if these people don’t rubber stamp O’s agenda…then who exactly voted for HIM?? Is this an unreasonable question to ask? Really, how did O get re-elected if those you would assume would rubber stamp anything O wanted isn’t even in favor of anything he does. There was one petition that did get about all required names…it was something to do with balancing the Budget!! The Democrats are also demanding O and Congress do their jobs. Maybe the Republicans and Democrats aren’t as far off as the Media would like us to believe! Maybe the only party that is in favor of everything O does is the New Media Party!! The New Media Party must be stopped! It isn’t the Democrat Party, The Republican Party…or even the Tea Party…it turns out the Party To Stop is The NEW Media Party!

    I sure would like to know what Ted Nugent has to say, I love the way he stands up to government and politicians when they try to take advantage of people by imposing there will and promoting there self interests I am sure he will give them an earful, Thanks for standing up for Americans Ted, and God Bless everybody who tries to protect our freedoms.
