gun control

Guest Post by Onan Coca

President Barack Obama is the most anti-gun President that has ever held the office, but if Hillary Clinton has her way she’ll soon hold that title. Throughout the primary she used her anti-gun positions as a bludgeon with which to hammer her socialist opponent Bernie Sanders. Sanders has long been a supporter of gun rights (he’s from the very gun-friendly Vermont), but he was forced to shift far to the left in an effort to beat back Clinton’s attacks.

Now that Sanders is out of the way, Clinton is shifting back to the middle to make herself seem more acceptable to the millions of voter who are also gun owners. However, her shift to the middle is nothing but smoke and mirrors. Clinton has no intention of allowing Americans to retain their 2nd Amendment rights, and we know this based on what her closest supporters are saying.

This past week Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe was able to find his way into a Hillary Clinton fundraiser in Palo Alto, California where he asked Clinton confidante and Wisconsin candidate for Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) what Hillary might do on guns.

James O’Keefe: “If there’s still Republican control in Congress, and if Hillary is elected, is there anything she can do could do to, uh…”

Russ Feingold: “Well, there might be executive order.”

At this point O’Keefe responds in surprise.

James O’Keefe: “Oh, so she can…I know that President Obama…”

Russ Feingold: “He did some executive orders with the aspects of waiting periods. But what we all need is to win the Senate, have her there, and then put pressure on the House. And we might win the House.”

Feingold’s response isn’t out of left field, he’s simply restating exactly what the Clinton campaign itself said just a week earlier.

Circling back around on guns as a follow up to the Friday morning discussion: the Today show has indicated they definitely plan to ask [a]bout guns, and so to have the discussion be more of a news event than her previous times discussing guns, we are going to background reporters tonight on a few of the specific proposals she would support as President – universal background checks of course, but also closing the gun show loophole by executive order and imposing manufacturer liability.

O’Keefe was also able to get Hillary Clinton confidante Amy Rao to explain Hillary’s plans for gun control.

“Hillary wants to shut it down. She wants to shut it down,” Rao said referring to guns. “If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close the loopholes, get rid of assault weapons. She’ll get rid of being able to buy, you know, unlimited bullets. She’s going to make all that stop.”

    Since 9/11, over 400,000 Americans have died by gun. Anything any President can do to reduce the violence is mandated by the Constitution (“to promote…and provide for the general welfare).O’Keefe is a convicted liar. Why would anyone listen to him?

    “O’Keefe is a whore for a group of rich capitalists. He has had to pay for his lies and dirty tricks, including $100,000 for lying to get someone fired. “O’Keefe has been accused of selectively editing and manipulating his recordings of ACORN employees, as well as distorting chronologies. Several journalists and media outlets have expressed regret for not properly scrutinizing and vetting his work.[18][19] In the summer of 2011, he began releasing videos of his colleagues’ staged encounters with workers which he claimed showed fraud related to Medicaid applicability. Further examination concluded there was no fraud or intent to commit fraud.[20]
    In 2013 O’Keefe agreed to pay $100,000 to former California ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera for deliberately misrepresenting Mr. Vera’s actions. On the basis of the selectively edited videotape which O’Keefe released, Vera appeared to be a willing participant in helping with O’Keefe’s plan to smuggle young women into the United States illegally. However, authorities confirmed that Mr. Vera immediately contacted them about O’Keefe and that he had also encouraged O’Keefe to share as much information as possible about his scheme and gather further evidence of O’Keefe’s purported illegal activities, which could then be used by prosecutors to bring charges against O’Keefe for attempted human trafficking. Due to O’Keefe’s release of the dubiously edited video, intentionally designed to “prove” that ACORN employees were ready and willing to engage in illicit activities, Mr. Vera lost his job and was falsely accused of being engaged in human trafficking.” Wiki Lying to get someone fired: how low can you go?

    That is James O’Keefe, a pure pond scum, paid to lie. In 2010, he was convicted of the crime of illegal pretense in seeking to take illegal pictures in a US office building. He pleaded guilty. This is what he does, and his rich benefactors always bail him out. Ironcially, he calls himself a “progressive radical,” tho all his actions are on behalf of the far right. He calls himself a muckraker, but he does not rake muck, he creates it with his lies and deceptions. He lies to get people to talk, then he edits the video to misrepresent what they said. That is what several court cases have concluded.

    Four Men Arrested for Entering Government Property Under False Pretenses for the Purpose of Committing a Felony”. U.S. Department of Justice (Press release). The FBI – New Orleans Division. January 26, 2010, etc. This is how he operates, illegally and deceptively, with malice aforethought. You are next!

      Yep a bad dude. But then ACORN’s list of atrocities aren’t without merit either. One bad dude going after another bad dude. Kind of makes one think… eventually.


      Using executive orders to destroy our bill of rights is unconstitutional bu them idiots like you wouldn’t know that right? Every dictator who took the peoples rights followed it up with total tyranny and millions of dead citizens! JUST TRY IT!!!!


      Oh poor ACORN the subversive corrupt vote stealing organization where Obama got his start in crime and the fact you hate O’Keeffe so much shows what a great patriot he is!

    225,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes!!

    What does the word iatrogenic mean? This term is defined as induced in a patient by a physician’s activity, manner, or therapy. Used especially of a complication of treatment. Compliments of the JAMA Journal.
    Wouldn’t it be nice if la la land really existed and twisted reasoning really made a difference.

    A gun can save a life just as easily and has… many more times then unjustly takjng one. By ruffsoft’s reasoning we should seriously consider outlawing all doctors and modes of transportation since more lives are taken by them every year then guns. There are no guarantee’s in this life, and promoting the delusion that there are or even some semblance that there are does no service to you or anyone buying into it. It’s helpful to look carefully at both sides of an equation before answering.
