If Obama pushes hard for gun control, I think for a lot of folks that will be the final straw between just hating the Obamunists and taking that extra step towards being openly hostile to the regime and its supporters. And no, I don’t want to define “openly hostile”.
Obama seems to be especially cocky now, having won re-election while doing virtually nothing right during his Presidency, as evidenced by his absurd negotiating tactics vis-a-vis the fiscal cliff, which goes well beyond what he campaigned on.
Friday, the day of the tragedy, Obama launched a trial balloon at gun control in his press conference: “…And we’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.” (emphasis added)
The gun-control reactions today from my co-workers and on my Facebook feed (where I am not nearly as political as I would like to be) were not encouraging. Reactions are extremely divided between “Why do people need guns?”, and “I really need to get (more) guns”.
We tell ourselves that the American public will not allow severe restrictions on guns, and that the NRA owns the Congress, but we also thought that our fellow citizens would never re-elect the SCOAMF.
When we say “cold dead hands”, we mean it. Unfortunately, I think there are a lot more Obamunists now who want to try to call us out on that.
The reaction will be a hearty, “Fuck you, and the horse you rode in on.”
Honestly, I’m wondering if this is the first shot fired in the next American civil war. We’ve been in a “pre-revolutionary” state since 2010, and it hasn’t gotten any better.
