Obama Signs Gun Control Executive Orders

As expected, Obama held his big press conference this afternoon and announced that he was signing some new overhyped executive orders on gun control:

“WASHINGTON — As tears streamed down his face, President Obama on Tuesday condemned the repeated spasms of gun violence across America as he announced new executive actions intended to reduce the number of mass shootings, suicides and killings that have become routine in the nation’s communities.

Speaking in the East Room of the White House surrounded by gun control activists and the families of gun victims, Mr. Obama broke down as he spoke about the young children shot to death in 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. …”

I don’t see how any of this would have prevented any of the recent mass shootings.

Among recent psychopaths, Dylann Roof legally bought a gun and passed a background check because the FBI screwed up, Adam Lanza was too young to legally purchase the guns used in Sandy Hook which were all legally purchased by his mom, Vester Flanagan II (aka Bryce Williams) passed a background check and legally purchased his guns, the guns used by Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho were legally purchased, the guns used by the San Bernardino shooters were legally purchased, and all the guns used by the Umpqua shooter, the Satanist Chris Harper-Mercer, were also legally purchased.

Even the New York Times shows some skepticism of the panacea that is universal background checks. There is an interactive feature over there that acknowledges that the guns used by Rusty Houser, James Holmes, Aaron Alexis, Wade Michael Page, Jared Loughner, and Major Nidal Hasan all used firearms that had been legally purchased. As a convicted felon, Glenn Miller couldn’t legally purchase a gun, but evaded gun control laws by finding someone else to buy him the shotgun he used in Overland Park. James von Brunn was also a convicted felon and shouldn’t have been able to purchase the .22 caliber rifle he used in his attack on the US Holocaust Museum.

In his 10,000 word manifesto, the “Supreme Gentleman” Elliot Rodger wrote:

“‘I had already done some research on handguns, and I decided to purchase the Glock 34 semiautomatic pistol, an efficient and highly accurate weapon. I signed all of the papers and was told that my pickup day was in mid-December,’ he wrote.

‘After I picked up the handgun, I brought it back to my room and felt a new sense of power. I was now armed. Who’s the alpha male now, bitches?'”

Several recent locations of mass shootings have been “gun-free zones” including Sandy Hook Elementary School, the movie theaters in Aurora and Lafayette attacked by Holmes and Houser, Virginia Tech, the Washington Navy Yard, Fort Hood and most notoriously the US Army Recruiting Center attacked by the jihadist Mohammad Abdulazeez in Chattanooga. Several of the guns used by Abdulazeez were also legally purchased.

France has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, but that didn’t stop the Charlie Hebdo massacre or the Paris terrorist attacks which dwarf all the recent mass shootings in the United States. Gun control laws don’t stop other kinds of terrorists or psychopaths who are determined to go to crazytown on 24/7 cable news television: the Unabomber, the Tsarnaev brothers who blew up the Boston Marathon, the 9/11 hijackers, the Germanswings pilot Andreas Lubitz, and so on.

Of course none of this matters to leftists who are fixated on guns, not evil. Obama clearly wants to take away guns period and is exploiting these incidents to push his preexisting agenda. At some point, one of his successors will succeed in using Supreme Court appointments to nullify the Second Amendment and confiscation will begin.

  1. Virtually nothing in these executive orders will have any substantive change in current policy, meaning they will have no change in how many gun-related violent crimes on the ground. Obama just wanted to do something just to be able to brag about doing something.

    I did notice that he crocodile cried for Newtown, but not for Chicago. White liberal Democrat donor privilege, perhaps?

  2. For the record, the list of 23 points was not from what Obama signed today, but from his similar executive order back in 2013. Note the date in the Forbes article. However, it almost doesn’t matter, because what he signed today was mostly the same thing.

  3. Another minor semantical correction, Hunter:

    Of course none of this matters to leftists who are fixated on guns, not evil.

    Most Leftist anti-gun nuts are fixated on guns only as a proxy for their hate for White America. They know White America is heavily armed and becoming more angered by the obvious anti-White agendas being pushed in the media and government. Guns in the hands of White Americans is not the cause of the majority of violence in the country, but Hussein Obama wants to take guns from law-abiding citizens to supposedly make America safe. Then he turns right around and gives away millions and millions of dollars worth of taxpayer-funded military weapons to help “moderate” terrorists fight their own government.

    Just about every Leftist position is a thinly veiled attempt to displace and attack the White population. It’s all about disarming White America, whether it be physically disarming us of the right to self-defense, or disarming us of ideological tools to call them out on their lies, hypocrisy and daily bullshit.

  4. I understand there are some serious changes in these Obama executive orders.

    One is that if you are a vet, and have ever checked yourself into the VA on any sort of a mental health issue. Even if you have only enquired about a mental health services, you will now be unable to purchase a gun.

    I don’t know how far back the VA can go, or will go in enforcing this provision. I can’t help, but, think of an old pal of mine who when he felt he was losing his grip, would check himself into the VA. He was a highly decorated combat vet, and is now a preacher in a Southern State. I don’t know if he allows guns in his church or not? Anyway, it would be ashame to see this type of White gentleman caused aggravation because he did the smart thing.

  5. I think that it’s worth knowing that Peter Lanza, the father of Adam Lanza the Sandy Hook shooter, is a vice president of General Electric and also of Ernst & Young the national accounting outfit. Obviously, Peter Lanza spoiled his son who was a rich brat by all accounts, but, Peter spent little or no time with him, or working with him leaving it up to his ex-wife.

    If something should be researched it should be the relationship between Peter Lanza and his son Adam.

  6. The thing of it is that even if gun control worked to stop these mass attacks with firearms the consequence would probably be that they would turn to explosives to kill. Which would likely result in even more deaths. How many more people would be dead if instead of guns the people mentioned by HW used truck bombs instead?

    I respond:

    This is perhaps one reason why Obama is very animated about Newtown. General Electric was a really big element of the pro-Obama crony capitalist corps. I also tend to think that the Nutmeg Nutbar in question reminded a lot of media people and big time blue state Connecticut donors of their own sons of about that age; Plain words, what that Nutbar did struck a lot of important people who can make a lot of people catch cold when they sneeze very personally.

  8. I really wish pro-White advocates in America would spend a little less time proselytizing and preaching to the choir on the Internet, and a little more time pushing for REAL networking that can affect change.

    They don’t want gun control, they want White control.

    “I really wish pro-White advocates in America would spend a little less time proselytizing and preaching to the choir on the Internet, and a little more time pushing for REAL networking that can affect change.”

    You are asking for too much Time. These people won’t even support their own cause when Pro Whites stand up in public and run on it. They only support Republicans, then they whine there is no nationalist movement in America. Because of them I fear America will end up like South Africa.

  10. Atlanta would usually be doable for me most times of the year. But the holiday family thing is still lingering, and will be for the next few weeks. I’ll keep my eye out and see if I can help in any way with future events and projects.

    I’m switching gears in 2016 and going to push for more local and regional networking. It’s something I started to work on several years ago, but got sidetracked because of other obligations; and the general apathy and annoying individualism of many supposed pro-Whites didn’t help either.

    It should be obvious to anyone with a pulse that the anti-Whites will never quit. Any gains White America receives will be negligible and simply reversed when a fresh new crop of anti-Whites are birthed and conditioned to take it all away. They’ll just keep chipping away until the entire country is as fucked up as Detroit or Baltimore.

    It should be equally obvious that the GOP will never be a vehicle for true revolution. Whatever saves us, it’s going to be something new and unlike movements of the past. And whatever that new thing is, it’s going to have to be an entity that uses real life networking as its foundation. I doubt anyone here is going to feel good about standing up to the belligerent anti-White hordes when you are backed up mostly by an army of screen names and anonymous malcontents.

  11. Well, that (extremely redacted statement goes here) just made me change my weekend plans and head off to a gun show! Got to show some solidarity!

    And I thought Carter went out of office hated. He’s soon to be third place!

  12. The irony is that Obama is probably the best advertisement firearm manufacturers and distributors ever had. Obama threatens, gun sales go through the roof.

  13. I hear Captain Simian is arming bureaucrats at the EPA. He must be running out of soldiers. That stupid BLM terrorist organization his pal Soreass is funding is not targeting White cops, they’re just shooting cops. Oh too bad. Less soldiers for the War huh monkey boy?
