Obama: ‘I Haven’t Given Up’ On Gun Control

President Obama says he hasn’t given up on gun control, despite legislative defeats and opposition from many Americans.

“No, I haven’t given up,” he told ABC News in a new interview. “What we’ve done is to try to do as much as we could administratively to tighten up how background checks are run, to go after illegal drug runners. But I will tell you that trying to get something through Congress has proven to be really difficult. And it’s heart-breaking.”

Obama said his administration will continue to fight for tougher gun control, even with executive actions.

“But the power of NRA and the gun lobby in Congress is formidable,” Obama said. “And you know, we’re going to keep chipping away at this, but until you get intense public demands for this, it’s probably not going to happen because some special interests and lobbyists in Washington are really, really strong and their membership feels very intensely about the issue. Whereas the general public is concerned about it, but doesn’t make it their top priority.”

  1. ROTFLMFAO. Since when is the majority of the public considered a ‘special interest’?

  2. I find it amazing that he allows himself body-guards, police and even the military, who are all bearing guns of various calibres and power, to guard him, yet the regular tax-donkey isn’t allowed the same instantaneous protection.

    “When precious seconds count, the police are only minutes away.”

    “Why bother having fire extinguishers in the home when we have a fire department.”

    “So, me and my family getting slaughtered in our home is morally superior to defending our right to live.”

    Feel free to come up with your own.

    Barry Hussein 0bama can’t live out the desires of his agenda until all the honest citizens are disarmed. He will never obtain that goal. 0bama is a failure and a fraud, but he does deserve credit for being the best gun salesman in the history of the world.

    Eat Shiite, Barry!

  4. Fortunately we now have the SCOTUS back on our side!

    Hopefully…
