Obama’s well-groomed lapdog Jay Carney insisted to reporters that the President is “committed to the 2nd Amendment”:
“First of all, the president of the United States believes that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual’s right to bear arms…He has been explicit about this…And throughout his time in office he has made clear that he believes we ought to take commonsense and enact commonsense measures that protect our Second Amendment rights but prevent people who should not have weapons from obtaining them. So his commitment to the Second Amendment I think is very clear.”
No, he’s not committed to the 2nd Amendment. He’s committed to its destruction. No matter what he or Pelosi say, gun control measures are not “protecting and defending” Americans. Pelosi stated that she took an oath to “protect and defend.” She took an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not people. That means that she promised when she took office to uphold citizens’ Constitutional rights, and that includes the 2nd Amendment.
Of course, it’s all about the children. Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont said before an audience of Georgetown law students that in his home state, they restrict the number of rounds a person can have in his semi-auto rifle for deer hunting:
“[A]bout the only gun law we have in Vermont is during deer season. If you have a semiautomatic, you can’t have more than six rounds in it. Are we really, as a nation, saying we’re going to be more protective of the deer than we are of our children? I think not.”
