Obama Sheds Tears As He Tries To Convince America Gun Control Will Save Lives

ObamaConstitutionBy Joe Jankowski

On Tuesday, President Obama spoke in the East Room of the White House about the executive actions the administration is seeking to take on the transfer of firearms in America.

Mark Barden, whose son Daniel was killed in the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, introduced the President to undoubtedly pull the heart strings of what is being played up as an emotional decision for the White House.

At the end of the President’s address he brought himself to tears (questionable real tears) as he explained his grief when thinking about the young kids killed at Sandy Hook elementary school.

On Monday the White House put forth a plan to unilaterally place requirements that would expand background checks for buyers. The measures would mandate that individuals “in the business of selling firearms” register as licensed dealers, effectively closing the so-called “gun show loophole,” which exempts most small sellers from keeping formal sales records.

“Each time this comes up, we are fed the excuse that common-sense reforms like background checks might not have stopped the last massacre, or the one before that, or the one before that, so why bother trying,” Obama said. “I reject that thinking.”

It’s important to note that these measures would not have saved the children at Sandy Hook who died in a gun free zone. Every mass shooting which Obama uses as a excuse to push his gun control agenda all happened in gun free zones where there is an absence of proper defense against an armed criminal.

Also, Adam Lanza, the convicted shooter, used a gun that was purchased legally by someone else.

These new measures would be ineffective in achieving the reduction in gun violence that the President claims is his main motive.

Interestingly, in 2015 the FBI recorded a record number of firearm-related background checks. Over 23 million in all.

It seems as if the American people are taking up arms rather than putting them down.

In the wake of the San Bernardino shooting gun sales and concealed carry permit applications shot through the roof in some parts of the country.

What all these gun sales tell you is that the American people are not counting on Obama to protect them. The power of self-protection, as common sense tells us, in the in the hands of the individual.

Just prior to the announcement of what executive actions the administration would like to take, Gallup released a poll showing that guns and gun control ranked near the bottom of the American people’s concerns in 2015.

From Gallup:

In fact, guns/gun control ranked 19th out of 23 top problems facing the country last year.

According to Gallup, only one percent of respondents mentioned guns/gun control as a concern for most of the months in 2015, although mentions spiked to 7 percent in October and December following mass shootings in those months that dominated the news. (The overall average for the year was 2 percent.)

If gun control is to be the President’s last attempt to escape his lame duck status, let the label only become more glaring than ever. He has completely failed the American people in all aspects of representation.

Let’s please applauded the President for one thing: his improved acting skills since the last time he attempted to shed tears in front of everyone.

Now, let’s take a note to ourselves, from a human standpoint, on the fact that there were zero tears shed from Obama when U.S. airstrikes murdered children at a hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz, Afghanistan, in October.

If the life of all children is not consistent with the President’s morals, then how can we take those tears seriously?

  1. Look out,come Feb 1st,2017 …should there is an elected democrat in office…anyone who isn’t currently deemed unqualified to use their rights found under the 2nd ammendment will probably be in the shock of their life..but,then it may not affect the entire class as a whole as Hilary will want to be re-elected a second term so she will hold off on putting everbody into the same box..but,who would be started off..those persons who can’t do their own money management due to mental illness…but,then this would include low iq persons and those elderly and sick who has an overseer who attends to their affairs…many who collect SSI and SSDI…then it will go onto to those who are veterans with pstd and civilians with purported mental illness who unwittenly have been collecting either an SSI or SSDI monthly payment from,u guessed it,UNCLE SAM!!!…Soooo ..the MILLIONS who have been living off the government whether with honesty or by deception using mental illness to get free money without having to work for it could very possibly be found to be unfit to keep their 2nd ammendment rights…then,comes war vets,retired police and the like…hmmm…don’t think anybody envisioned this would take place and should this happen nobody can say I didn’t tell u so…..

    • The effects of this could be a catalyst to revolution, lets all hope.

      • I think this is what obama is hoping for…keep most of miitary stateside..pass executive gun law and bypass congress and wait for the sthtf!… Let the details get out on his executive order he signed a day ago and let the people rose up..obama brings in the big guns and voila..obama declares martial law….and then we ALL are screwed!!…there will be no democrat,republican or any other party…he will simply take over…he is a power hungry person…

    • If Hillary wins we know it’s rigged

      • This is why the courts refused for many people to show proof of citizenship to vote…BUT..get this!!…you get on an airplane…you must show a VALID picture id that is legal to board an airplane…this is the same administration who said one year ago the law to restrict ones right to vote was unconstitutional then BUT it is today CONSTITUTIONAL today to keep those without PROPER,LEGAL PICTURE INDENTIFICATION from boarding a DOMESTIC FLIGHT!…now…someone tell me how that isn’t unconstitutional for my 83 yr old mom to not be allowed to board because she has no picture id as she has no drivers license because she never has drove and she never wanted to.

    I didn’t see tears till after he started wiping his eyes. Wonder what he had on his hands to make his eyes water.

    • Maybe Obama was born to be an actor…he sure pulled off that stint that our insurance would go down $2500 per family in 2014!…haaaaa..that turned out to be a bald faced lie…BUT,Those Obama followers believed him…many still do…despite the contrary!!!

      • CarolinaPride | January 6, 2016 at 7:13 pm | Reply

        Yea but that’s not acting. It’s mind control.

        • Yeap…100% agree with that…I think that he thinks he still has that mojo which propelled him into office in 2008…and the fact he just loves to direct our attention towards one thing and at the same time he is getting or trying to get something done over in the opposite direction..but,the fact is obama wants to include all those who collect a social security check and those who are retired state and federal employees…he said as such back in the summer of 2014…he was mad cause a few of his democratic partners who are avid hunters who believe in their 2nd amendment rights and wish to hold onto their seats…it still doesn’t change the fact that Hilary herself not more than a month ago proudly announced that should she become president that she will go farther left than what obama has done because something has got to be done!!…the thing that really needs to be done is start with the laws written that is already law and follow thru with arrests for those NOT following said laws followed by applicable sentences for breaking the law instead of looking the way and pretend crime doesn’t exist!!!!

  3. Diidn’t see him shed a tear when those little kids were getting their heads chopped off with ISIS!! I think we have an actor at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!

  4. Boy Obama plays for the camera and the media gush. How silly to watch the theatrics of this clown.

  5. maybe he attended a crisis actor class.
    (he will be looking for a job soon)

    • That’s why he be hanging around the Hollywood crowd…he had them go to the white house rather he going to call…

        Stop the phony ghetto crap. Everyone can see it’s just crap.

        • Wm…I don’t live in the ghetto and Obama sees himself as a rock star because this is where the public had placed him when he came in the spotlight with Oprah being the main reason he rose in the ranks of politics..she brought him front and center as he had a dream to become potus…he thinks he still has this connection with the American people but personally he is not that rock star from 2008…at that time he was an unknown…but,after 7 years in office..he is simply not that unknown person who chimed that “hope and change” as his brand of so-called hope and change is nothing that I had envisioned for this country…it’s actually worse now after 7 years of obama policy and much worse after the 8 years of the Bush administration…had 9/11 not happened…we wouldn’t be having this discussion…this is one reason why the hope and change campaign worked so well…the economy sucked then…and it sucked during his 1st term and continues to do so today with little job reform to get millions to work and now we have hundreds of thousands here illegally who came here since obama took office in 2009…on top of those millions who had come here since Reagan did the last aamnesty order…

            I partially agree, except the “connection” part. Unless you meant CON-nection. The SOB is a con man and leftist organizer. He might feel some connection to certain parts of Reggie Love-Biscuit, but that’s about it.

      Maybe, but that’s not what’s at work in that speech. He rubs his ONE eye, as if absent-mindedly, and then a minute or so later the tears start streaming. FROM THE ONE EYE HE RUBBED. It’s probably hot pepper oleoresin, or he must rubbed a Hanbañero pepper seed. Mace, a mixture of capsaicin and tear gas, also works.

    • Well, in this case, he’s already doing better than any of those idiots ever did

  6. I am surprised that an online journal as astute as Activist Post would support the Sandy Hook Elementary School event as reality… as if this event as reported by the MSM ever occurred. SHE is so fraught with conflict and mega-sized lies… plus proven facts that deny the official story… that any novice to the subject could come to a rational conclusion by exercising casual research.

  7. Sandyhoax crisis actors…..boo hoo….I don’t buy it but I guess Obama thinks it worked

  8. SANDY HOOK WAS a HOAX: Obama cannot possibly shed a genuine tear over an imaginary event that never happened. He was acting

  9. He would have to resign because republicans like Trey Gowdy don’t want him impeached.

  10. cute….Betty Davis Eyes….not
    wincing sissy

  11. If they would uphold the laws we already have mental screening wouldn’t be an issue…..most mentally ill violent people act out and are ignored by law enforcement….look at Jared Loughner
    Let’s see what the courts do….he’s been struck down before on immigration.

    • This isn’t about mental illness…IT’S ALL ABOUT THE GUNS!!!.. Obama is all about tossing out the 2nd ammendment and he using executive authority to so call get his foot in the door to keep that door from again closing completely…he is a constitutional scholar and knows by changing the arrangment of wording in a legal document will redefine the document to mean something else…the republicans won’t go along as some democrats so he using his trusty pen and phone to then weaken the 2nd ammendment bit by bit to change what he insists needs changing because he doesn’t like it.Pelosi got everybody to fall for that famous line of “we got to pass it to find out what’s in it!”in the obamacare issue to which “we,the TAXPAYER people,got screwed and tattooed on the obamacare issue…as for this…the next group of people are former military and law enforcement people….as THEY all know how to use a gun and handle situations…

    • Yep…obama as potus could do a lot…BUT…and that is a big but…he doesn’t give a rat’s a**!all he cares about is to seal things and keep them from being undone with the next commander in chief….this is why he wants a democrat to succeed him…and why he hadn’t biblically supported Hilary…as he doesn’t trust her….she,too,given the job,needs to have something for her first 4 years in office and that maybe some dickering with changing some of obama policies…and he just doesn’t want anything he has done to be undone…and hoped Biden would’ve announced his run…but the son died and so too did Obama’s continued hope and change policy continuing with Biden…

    • He needs to follow the laws already on the books but those laws already on the books…he simply doesn’t agree with..he refuses to uphold The laws of the constitution and has repeatedly done so in clear disregard to the American people wishes…he will cut off his arm b4 bowing to a republican congress because he is acting like a two year brat….pouring because he doesn’t get his way….he pouted bad when he became a lame duck…and THAT’S WHY things aren’t getting done…HE doesn’t like something…HE VETOES IT!!…despite how much the American people want the bill signed!..more people than not want obamacare repealed and it will go to his desk with both houses voting for its repeal…he will veto it because THAT IS THE ONLY ACHIEVEMENT FROM HIS FIRST 4 YEARS..he doesn’t want it to be done to him as he did to bill Clinton shortly after taking office by repealing Clinton’s welfare reform act!!!…

  12. He doesn’t care about 50 million slaughtered babies though – no tears for them

  13. It’s plain and so simple….ITS ALL ABOUT REMOVING THE 2ND AMMENDMENT FROM THE CONSTITUTION…NEXT AMMENDMENT WILL BE FREEDOM OF SPEECH…FREEDOM of speech doesn’t kill BUT FREEDOM TO HAVE GUNS DO!He must get rid of the GUNS so down the road another can then get rid of the FREEDOM of speech which is how we are currently able to have this discussion right now …without government intervention….

    John 9:16
    Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
    “That which men cannot understand — and this is almost universally true — they condemn. Unable to perform such work themselves, they take the position that those who can or do such deeds must be sinners; of the devil and — not so long ago — witches.
    Moreover, the sinful man, torn with the knowledge, or consciousness of his own evils or sins, cannot comprehend the possibility of another’s being free from sin and, to save his own conscience, he judges all men guilty.
    Since, in the eyes of the sinful man, all men are guilty, the work they do, especially that which defies mortal or intellectual understanding, must be evil, hence certainly not of God. In such manner was the Nazarene and all his works judged; in like manner must all who follow his footsteps expect to be judged and condemned.”

  15. As Harold says – Sandy Hook was a false flag designed precisely for this attempt at removing power from the electorate so that those in power have even less chance of getting dragged out and shot for all their psychopathic actions. Do YOU believe the person calling himself Obama with a false birth certificate – or the Queen of England – convicted in absentia of child kidnapping – act in YOUR best interests – or their own?
    Wake up. – This is Robin Hood territory, except in the UK, Robin’s had his sword and bow taken away from him. Look into Sandy Hook and begin to appreciate the extent of the lies.

  16. “Adam Lanza, THE CONVICTED SHOOTER, used a gun that was purchased legally by someone else.”

    Really? That’s some fine reporting there. You don’t normally see this kind of farcical nonsense on Activist Post. Disheartening.
