White House concedes new gun laws wouldn’t have stopped Va. gunman

by Dave Boyer - The Washington Times  |  published on August 29, 2015

Dave Boyer – The Washington Times The White House conceded Friday that new gun regulations probably wouldn’t have prevented the gunman who murdered two television journalists in southwestern Virginia this week.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said it appears that a proposal championed by President Obama to require background checks on purchases at gun shows “would not have applied in this particular case.”

    and now we want to give illegals the right to buy guns wonder what they are drinking

  • Jimbo

    The president and the dumbocrats KNOW gun control doesn’t do anything to control crime. They want to control honest, law abiding Americans. And of course, they want you disarmed when the invoke martial law, dismiss Congress and take over the country.

    So why shouldn’t we try to stop the 33,000 gun deaths in the US per year. These lives don’t matter, We have enough children in this country that using them as targets is ok. Countries with less guns have less gun deaths. There isn’t some great big push on gun control, no one is taking your guns away. There will be another big lie that the government is going to take your guns to improve sagging gun sales. AR-15 sales are down enough that Walmart has stopped selling them. The NRA had better scare some more people and get gun sales back up. Here is a list of what the White House has done on gun control so far

    Stop calling this gun grabbing POS the white house. He’s an ignorant man not a white house. If he admitted that this gun control BS wouldn’t have changed the outcome of these murders why doesn’t he shut the hell up about gun control? I know why because he wants no resistance when his Communist party attempts to control this whole country.

      Y’all right wing intellectuals have been claiming the “commie’s” are gonna take over since the mid 1950’s. So when do you see it starting?

      That was beautiful.

        Thank you, Pete. The democrats should observe what’s going on in their own back yard before they criticize others…

      How many of these shootings and deaths would have been saved by more ‘gun control’? How many of the guns were legally owned?

      • Walt

        You can take away every gun from every citizen in America, but the crime won’t stop. If a criminal wants a gun, they can get one in minutes by buying one illegally off the street. They tried this in other countries and it turned out to be a disaster. They’re faced with more crime than ever, and that’s a fact. The people of Australia told the American people not to let the government confiscate their weapons because it caused a lot more chaos since they were taken by their government. Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the country, and they have the most murders by gun violence. There are millions of Americans like who legally owned a gun, but obey the laws. There will always be an unbalanced person causing madness in the world. If someone can come up with an idea on how to stop them, it just may be a solution to the problem…

          YUP…. I agree with you 100% Walt. I even ‘liked’ your post. I was at the end of a group of posts so clicked on reply under your post. I was really asking the idiot anti-gun people. None of these tragedies (MASS KILLINGS ETC.) would have been prevented by gun bans. And VERY FEW guns that are used in crimes by thugs and criminals are REGISTERED or owned thru legal purchase following a back ground check. I tried to ‘share’ your post but it wouldn’t work. Also tried to CCP but that would oky do the part on the screen and not scroll. I know all those stats. Doesn’t do much good to try to pass he truth around…… some people just do NOT want facts and will NOT do their own research. OH WELL!!! There are None so blind as those who will not see….
          I forgot what the subject was. Surprisingly , it was The WH ***CONCEDES*** …… SHOCKING… 😉

            Miriam, I often think to myself if these liberal democrats weren’t water boarded when they chose that party affiliation because they are close minded, mean spirited individuals. As a conservative, I always keep an open mind. With these campaigns coming up, I am narrowing it down to a few, but I will choose the best candidate I think will do the best job in the White House. I don’t vote for candidates because they’re funny, good looking or just a nice person. We have enough improv and Hollywood entertainers in the White House now. Also, they want to vote for Hillary because she’s a long time favorite. That’s like betting on a favorite twenty year old horse to win the Kentucky Derby. It’s not going to happen. Hillary has so much negative baggage it’s disgusting. What’s really scary is when I watch Jesse Watters interview people across the country to see how much knowledge they have with politics. Out of all the top people in Washington, the only people they really know is, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, etc., and the scary part is, they vote. The Republicans are just as guilty. They haven’t a clue on politics. God help us all! Thank you for your reply. Have a blessed day…

          • Miriam Farnum

            You said a lot when you mentioned the idiots on Watter’s World. The same uninformed types that use to be on Jay Leno’s Jay Walkers. And they were college students and MANY teachers and professors. And yes, it’s scary because they vote.

          • Walt

            Miriam, Here’s the real kicker on what’s going on in this country. Copy and paste this website to your search engine, or maybe you just have to click on it, and let me know what you think. http://safeshare.tv/w/csrqsTAmSx.

    AND what is the WHITE TOILET saying about a WHITE COP shot by yet another Misinformed Race Hate Monger that has been Following the ” BLACK LIES MATTER” Mantra of BHO.. Holder.. Sharpton???????? again all I hear is ” CRICKETS”… are they HAPPY YET????

  • TexRancher

    Not fear, Obama and his socialist (former democrat) party will find a way to punish the millions of honest, hard working Americans who never shot anybody or committed any crime! The only thing the ObamaBots want is to make it safer for them to screw this country up and destroy our Constitution and our Rights!

    • The redhawk

      BULLS EYE !! and their ultimate goal may be to Encourage Race warfare in the true tradition of Primitive Africa…

    • pete G

      A little story, I bought a rifle for home protection 4 years ago and, honest to God truth i have yet to fire it. The point i am making is i would never hurt anyone with a gun unless they broke into my home, while i was home and i felt my or my families life was threatened. Should i give up my protection because some nut wants to control Americans, HELL NO.

  • Gnowark

    Since it wouldn’t have had any effect, WH will offer another 1,000 guñ laws that will only effect people who need to protect themselves, but won’t have any effect on the progressive’s preferred base: crazies and criminals.

    • MC

      But it will make the left feel as if they accomplished something.

      • And as we all know, they don’t think, they FEE-E-E-L.

        • The redhawk

          THEY may FEEL all they want but are still Unable to FIND theyr AZZ with a GPS!

          Is this “FEE-E-E-L” one of your gay porn fantasies?
