I utterly fail to see why Obama is hell bent on heavily curtailing our 2nd amendment, but is willing to send guns to folks who hate us and wants to destroy America

"A new petition on the White House's "We the People" site asks the Obama administration to "require that Syrian rebels receiving weapons be held to the same restrictions as American citizens."
The petition states that the administration should require any rebels receiving firearms from the U.S. government "receive only firearms legal for U.S. civilian ownership and undergo the same background and security checks a U.S. civilian would, including appropriate NFA [National Firearms Act] tax stamps and waiting periods."

Last week, President Obama announced that he would send weapons to rebels in Syria and has stationed 300 troops just outside the Syrian border in Jordan. The decision was based on reports of Syrian President Bashar Assad's use of chemical weapons against his own people.

Some may see the irony in Obama's decision. For the past six months in America, Obama has led an assault campaign against the Second Amendment. On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden said that the administration has "completed or made significant progress" on 21 of 23 executive actions Obama said he would take during a January press conference on gun control. Remember that list? It was basically a shopping list full of vague requirements and such winning, privacy-invading suggestions as "Clarify that the [Obamacare] does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes."

Why does the president trust Syrian weapons with guns more than he trusts American citizens with them? To begin with, Syria I doubt has the NCIC that keeps track of folks who commit felonies. And another thing, there were al-Qaeda elements supporting the rebels in the region. In recent weeks, a training video has been posted on an al-Qaeda website showing young rebel recruits in Syria singing, not only about overthrowing Assad, but also how quote, ‘the World Trade Center was turned into rubble"
Now WTF??? I understand how the US wants to help some of the innocents over there, but I am so not in favor of sending guns to people people who hate us and give weapons to people who want to kill us.

  • He sure does seem to like war more than he let on while campaigning.

  • It is ironic, especially when the two actions are posed side by side. And is he going to get us out of Afghanistan just to entangle us in Syria?

    You know?? It wouldn't surprise me. He told everyone he will get our troops out of Afgan country...and he will. Never said he will have them home.

  • He doesn't seem to like our country very much, especially when one compares his attitude toward the US with his attitude toward the others.
