Politician Who Smuggled Guns to Druglords Thinks Americans Need to do “Soul Searching” Over Guns

Americans obviously need to do some soul searching about guns in the hands of dangerous people since they voted twice for a man who smuggled guns to drug cartels.

But Obama, who keeps telling other people to do some soul searching, but never searches his own, told Americans that once again the order has come down from D.C. for a soul searching mandate.

Barack Obama Tuesday called for national “soul searching” over gun violence, warning that mass shootings were “off the charts” in a way no other advanced country would tolerate.

I wonder why those shootings are “off the charts”. Maybe it’s because his media backers give tons of publicity to each shooter, encouraging the next one.

As I’ve written, the media doesn’t cover teenage suicides because it leads to copycat suicides. The exception is when the teenager uses a gun to commit murder-suicide.

 “We are the only developed country on earth where this happens, and it happens now once a week,” Obama said at the White House, hours after a gunman shot and killed a student at an Oregon High School in the latest incident.

“There is no place else like this!” he said, adding that America should be ashamed it could not enact even the mildest gun reforms.

“The country has to do some soul searching about this.”

Can Obama do some soul searching about his clemency for career drug dealers or his support for flooding the country with criminal illegal aliens?

Both of those are factors in real day-to-day shootings, not the occasional spree killer hyped by the media.

How about doing some soul searching over the role his buddy Al Sharpton has played in urban violence? How about asking his pals and donors in the music industry to stop promoting gang violence in music?

Oh but Obama doesn’t do soul searching. He only orders people who aren’t doing what he wants to search their souls.

    Obama may be the best gun salesman, ever.

      Guns have been in short supply since Obama was sworn in, in January 2009. So has ammo. Recently, there has been some scuttlebutt that the supply of guns is increasing. I went to the largest gun dealer in my town and asked about the availability of guns given that rumor. The dealer said “It depends on what guns you’re talking about. The quality brands are still very hard to come by.” But he can get a H&K USP .45 as long as the buyer isn’t looking for one of the variants H&K used to make, that is, you can get the white-milk, run-of-the-mill unit, manufactured for the right-hand user with right-hand slide stop (mounted on the left side), but don’t go looking for Variants 1 through 9. They’re still hard to get.

    How ironic that a man with no soul demands that others search theirs.

    yet another fine one, mr. knish

    The only time Democrats believe in the soul and the free market is when they are selling theirs to the highest bidder.

    The only soul he knows is Soul Food, Soul Music and being a Funk Soul Brother. The other one, not so much.
    On a different note: “We are the only developed country on earth where this happens, and it happens now once a week,” Obama said at the White House, hours after a gunman shot and killed a student at an Oregon High School in the latest incident.
    Meanwhile thousands are slaughtered daily in the Muslim world, and he says nothing. They get a pass because they are not developed? Muslim men kill their spouses and daughters in America and that is not a topic for discussion.
    Once again he derogates America, meaning law abiding gun owning citizens, and in his mind also white because of his Leftist/Racist views which produce leftist policy that condones evil and creates social discord. He pits citizens against each other dividing America into little grievance touting factions. Like riot police trained to disperse a large crowd into manageable chunks, he has done so with Americans. No single group is large enough or focused enough to oppose him, so he dodges the scandals, and evades his responsibilities. He is working the emotions and fraying the nerves of Americans so that there will be the New Revolution that he seeks, so that he can become even more radical in transforming America. Where the epicentre of this will be, is hard to say. For a Commie to admonish liberty loving Americans to do some soul searching is rich. This, if all the other failures of Obama hasn’t shown already, proves how completely out of touch with reality this man is. Absolutely disgraceful.

    I like guns. I’ve liked them all of my life. As a teenager, I shot competitively and was a member of my high school rifle team (try finding one of THOSE these days!).

    Currently, I’m an NRA-certified firearms instructor. I shoot handguns at the range twice a week (for as long as I have ammo). Soon a 100-yard indoor rifle range will be opening in my town; I’ll be shooting rifles there, too. I know guns pretty well.

    I’ve searched my soul and find nothing there in the area of guns and gun ownership that causes me any concern about any gun risk that I, or any shooter I know, might cause. So I’m just fine on the gun soul-searching front, President Obama. When it comes to me and guns, the nation is safe.

      Excellent common sense post. Too bad we don’t have a president with common sense.

      Guns are not the problem, mental health issues are. But that doesn’t work for the anti-gun lobby (which Obama is part of), so they always try to lay a guilt trip on gun owners. They don’t like them so they don’t want you to have them.

      Just like you – I feel no guilt whatsoever.

      But he should feel guilty for the state of mental health care in the country.

    Wow, my soul is telling me to buy a .50 Barrett semiauto. Thanks Soulie!

      My soul is telling me to buy a SIG 540:

      • Webb Cook

        Get it then. They’re nice. If you don’t get one you’ll always regret it. When I was a kid you could buy the FN-49 in 7mm Mauser for about $75 from an ad in Shotgun News, and on the back page of the American Rifleman magazine. That was prior to 1968 and my dad could’ve taken delivery of it for me without an FFL. Today they’re worth well over $3,000, but my dad didn’t like semiautos and wouldn’t let me get one.

        • UCSPanther

          I had an opportunity this spring to get an SAFN 49 in 30.06 for approx $800, but I passed it by.

          Still kicking myself over that opportunity.

            They were far ahead of their time, and beautiful to boot. Maybe someday . . . if I live long enough.

            I like those old wood-stocked semi-auto battle rifles with the protruding 10-round box mags, such as the AG42 and its Egyptian successor, the Hakim, the SKS and the VZ 52/57.

          My first rifle was an ’03 Springfield that I bought at Montgomery Ward for $32.00. I learned to shoot high-power rifles with that gun.

          I recently saw an FN-49 at my dealer’s store, but it was priced a lot higher than $75.00. And it wasn’t in near as good shape as the photo you posted, although the bore was clean.

  • Webb Cook

    Oh, here’s why he doesn’t like guns. They’re used to shoot his fans.

  • liz

    What a self-righteous whiner.

  • Bob

    Obooby can’t do any soul searching, because he has no soul to search.
