Obama: America needs "soul searching" on gun violence

Aug 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

President Barack Obama said on Monday that mass killings like the shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin were occurring with "too much regularity" and should prompt soul searching by all Americans, but he stopped short of calling for new gun-control laws.

You're assuming that the enemy to America must be an invading army and not a tyrannical government.
Your paranoia over government is hilarious. It may be crap, but be the least thankful that you didn't get Syria. Your fears are not so justified when you take into account the social standards and past events in the very young history of the US.

They already have them regardless of laws. That's what you can't seem to comprehend. Laws are only followed by the law abiding. Criminals by definition do not follow laws. Therefore gun control is law abiding citizen control.
Nice of you to just totally dismiss your legal system. So you're saying that laws are now a way to "control gullible people?" I really wonder how you claim to be a citizen of a democratic country with your kind of logic, poser.

<quoted text>No. You and libbies like you are the threat to freedom and we, the true Patriots, are here to ensure that Freedom stays. The 2nd Amendment ensures that the government fear her Citizens and not the other way around.
Just like libbies are afraid of personal responsibilities. Hence, you fear guns because you cannot be responsible with owning one and want everyone elses taken away.
Dear me, do paranoid gun toters now get to decide who is a "true patriot?" Why don't you run back to Mr. McCarthy and cry about how much you fear the Soviets?

Lol, you are better off saying nothing, than casting insults and clueing everyone in on the fact that you are grasping at straws.

Really? Show where I said that! I said law abiding people follow laws. Criminals do not. It's that simple.

I find it incredible how much hate there is on this forum. And how stupid you right wingers are!!
Obama is not perfect, but he is surely not clueless. I can tell by most of these comments that we're doomed. No peace, no love, no understanding. I just hope the balance soesn't tilt toward your barbaric, hateful ways or the human race is truly doomed. The vast majority of people left of center support freedom and the right to bear arms. I heard 1/2 the populations has an IQ of under 100. That's got to include most of you dimwits. I don't see a lot of ignorance here, I see a lot of stupidity.

Typical leftist you are.
Trying to suppress freedom of speech just because you disagree.
"Self professed"?
Because I care more about my country than I do the rest of the world?
GFY!
I post where and what I choose.
Obama does not speak for gun owning Americans and has no right to tell us to "soul search"

I guess you answered my question. Your colors are shining bright, but they are not red, white, and blue! It appears you were born 2 to 3 hundred years too late. Evolution seems to have gone around you. But then you might not believe in evolution.

Yeah!
You just go evolve along with your president.
Be sure you're flying your rainbow flag at half mast on election day.
Like I said, President Obamboozle does not have any authority to tell Americans to "soul search"
I'm keeping my guns and their isn't a damn thing he or you can do about it.

Does anyone seriously listen to ANYTHING Obama says any more? Obama is nothing more than a loser. He is currently in the White house padding his butt for when the elections come. Anyone that still supports Obama after his first 4 years is truly one of the most ignorant people living. Honestly, if you support Obama I wonder how you have time to do that between remembering how to breath.
