Obama Calls for Assault Weapons Ban, New ‘No Fly, No Buy’ Law

ABC News

In the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack, President Barack Obama today called on Congress to reinstate the assault weapons ban as well as pass legislation to make it harder for suspected terrorists to obtain firearms.

The president said there are a number of “common sense” gun control measures that Congress should take to reduce gun violence without violating the Second Amendment, and for the first time since the deadly shooting Sunday, he enumerated several steps he wants Congress to take.  

“People with possible ties to terrorism who are not allowed on a plane shouldn’t be allowed to buy a gun,” Obama said, referring to “no fly, no buy” legislation pending on Capitol Hill that would prevent any suspected terrorists on no-fly lists from buying firearms.

“Reinstate the assault weapons plan,” he added. “Make it harder for terrorists to use these weapons to kill us.”

“Otherwise, despite extraordinary efforts, despite all the sacrifices that folks make, these kinds of events are going to keep on happening,” Obama warned. “And the weapons are only going to get more powerful.”

In a nod to the Treasury Department, which hosted the National Security Council meeting on ISIS today that was part of a regular update on the campaign against ISIS, the president said that ISIS is “now effectively cut off from the international financial system.”

The meeting’s participants — including Vice President Joe Biden and senior national security advisers from the State Department, the Pentagon and the CIA — reviewed efforts to destroy the terrorist group. It was on the president’s schedule before the weekend’s massacre in Orlando, and the attack gave the meeting increased relevance and urgency.

The president added that the U.S. government is “doing everything in our power to stop these kinds of attacks.”

“Our mission is to destroy ISIL,” Obama said, using annother acronym for ISIS, or the Islamic State. “This continues to be a difficult fight, but we are making sufficient progress.”

  1. The video at the link below offers a very good explanation (in my opinion) of what the criminals in power are planning. But, do the research yourself, guns and the 2nd amendment are specifically for use as a last resort to deal with the tyranny we are now witnessing.

    Watch this short voice over by Paul of pocketsofthefuture [youtube] and then re-read some quotes by our founding fathers about guns, below.

    Hillary Clinton “Weapons of War Have no Place on Our Streets.” Hypocrisy

    Quotes of note:
    “Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” — Thomas Jefferson

    “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense…” [Force of Arms]— Alexander Hamilton

    “… the Constitution does not say Government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed..” — Ronald Reagan

    “Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”
    — Thomas Paine

    “A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” — George Washington

    “The ultimate authority resides in the people, and that if the federal government got too powerful and overstepped its authority, then the people would develop plans of resistance and resort to arms.”
    — James Madison

    “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.” — Abraham Lincoln

    “Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American. . . The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” — Tench Coxe

    “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, where the Government are afraid to trust their people with arms.” — John Adams

    “It is always dangerous to the liberties of the people to have an army stationed among them, over which they have no control … The Militia is composed of free Citizens. There is therefore no danger of their making use of their Power to the destruction of their own Rights, or suffering others to invade them..” — Samuel Adams

    “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” — Richard Henry Lee

    1. Good Quotes. Allow me to add one:

      “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” –The American Revolution Team.

    2. Bravo.
      What we have to fight is pure evil. While the “walking dead” sleep, we know what lies ahead of us. TranceAm just described what our Declaration of Independence spelled out. It is our right, it is our duty. Look in the mirror. You are the one you have been waiting for. How much more tyranny will we endure?

  2. No Due Process on the No Fly List

    constitutionally a no go
    hey if they really want WROL in this country they better watch for what they wish

    Fail!

  3. You know what they are afraid of? A Quote with no source.

    “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”

    There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass. Wearing out every foreign army of any size. Domestically it would have to work different. Using fear and what one calls reasonable solutions to take away that fear of the willing sheep.

    Quick make the children afraid, Disarm the willing sheep, and let them call and vote disarmament of the non-afraid. Use the soldiers up in far away meat grinders that wouldn’t go along with actions against the Constitution. Call the returning vets that didn’t die, crazy and make the willing sheep go along with taking their rights away, the rights they ironically fought for to preserve… Then slowly pick off the non afraid and take their weapons away by putting them on lists kept up by close door bureaucrats. Dilute the population with foreigners that have no loyalty to the Constitution and are only here to make money.

    They forget, it ain’t the weapons that win a fight, it is the spirit.

    Ever wondered why the flag is more half pole then in top these days? Even when in the National Hymn, the flagpole keeping up “Oh say can you see” is kept up by the dead bodies of fallen people. Fallen people that had nothing left but fighting tyranny that had put its boot on them, and given them no voice about their own life or what they believe how they should live it, and died for only keeping that sign of defiance to tyranny in top.

    Like the African Americans before them, and the Women before the African Americans, the LBGT community wants equal rights. The same rights every other American has/enjoys. There is really nothing new under the sun. Freedom to be yourself is universal, and a society that is nothing more then a pact to live together in peace furthering everyone’s life with the benefits of said society, and not only for some just because they got in power first and set up the laws and rules for others that didn’t believe as they did to live by.

    You can bet your last nickel. Seeing the stream of events, the laws and rights taken away or disregarded without proof on pure emotion of the scared masses, that this will not stop. The people in power will divide you until you all have to stand together to be able to make a stand, of bow to them and admitt that after 240 years the experiment has finally been folded by the people the first Americans won their freedom from. Free men and women will in facto have become slaves again, just the word for slaves will be a synonym so they don’t know they are slaves… Hell, growing accustomed to all kinds of limitations in life (Like the Children these days!), and having no comparison to what Free really means, they might call themselves a Free People and actually believe that.

    We are either all Americans equal for the law, or no-one is.
    (This is what I defend Henry.)

    This ain’t Sparta. Lets see if this is America, and what it will be remembered for in 4500 years. In Sparta if you wanted to take someones sword, you had to kill that person. I bet in Sparta’s time, the quote must have been:
    “You cannot invade Greece. There would be a sword behind every tree.”

  4. As the “enemy of the state” mentioned there is no due process for putting someone on the no-fly list. How long do you think it will be before Clinton or Trump put activists etc., on the no-fly list just so they can take away their firearms?

  5. ““People with possible ties to terrorism who are not allowed on a plane shouldn’t be allowed to buy a gun,” Obama said, referring to “no fly, no buy” legislation pending on Capitol Hill that would prevent any suspected terrorists on no-fly lists from buying firearms.”

    This makes Zero Sense whatsoever. A majority, if not all criminals, buy or get their guns illegally.

    ““Otherwise, despite extraordinary efforts, despite all the sacrifices that folks make, these kinds of events are going to keep on happening,” Obama warned. “And the weapons are only going to get more powerful.””

    Yea…so disarming the American people and then having DHS, ICE, FBI and CIA create and work with ISIS and giving them more powerful weapons is going to end all of these false flag events. Yea..once again, makes ZERO sense.

    ““Our mission is to destroy ISIL,” Obama said, using annother acronym for ISIS, or the Islamic State. “This continues to be a difficult fight, but we are making sufficient progress.””

    Well then, stop working with them and stop giving them weapons and start to consider arresting or destroying them. Now THAT makes PERFECT sense. 😉

    But of course we all know Barry is the puppet leading these events with the help of his Commie cohorts and Zionist masters in the background, so it’s all bullshit.
