Obama to gun-control petitioners: “We hear you”

posted at 2:46 pm on December 21, 2012 by Allahpundit

Three minutes of video that have less to do with pushing specific policies to reduce gun violence than pushing his supporters to keep up the pressure. One of O’s biggest obstacles in passing something is the public’s notoriously short attention span after a mass shooting. If the White House couldn’t get something through Congress after one of its own members was shot in the head by a lunatic, odds that they’ll get something passed in January, after a long holiday break and more fiscal-cliff clusterfarkery, are low. (Then again, Obama never really tried to pass something after Tucson because, as always, his reelection was more important to him than gun control.) He needs an all-hands-on-deck public pressure campaign by O-bots to keep the heat on, if only so that he can better demagogue Republicans later — the Clinton playbook — for failing to Do Something when the bill fails in the House.

Have a look at Pew’s new poll today to see just how tenuous his position is. Less than a week after 20 kids were killed, he still can’t get to 50 percent on whether it’s more important to “control gun ownership” than protect gun rights. Twenty years ago, 45% said the NRA had too much influence over gun laws; today, just 36% say so. (The number who say the NRA has either too little influence or the right amount exceeds the number who say it has too much.) This is a rare cultural issue on which opinion has become more conservative over time, enough so that O’s worried that even the bully pulpit and a national burst of grief over murdered children won’t be enough to deliver policy change. They might have enough momentum to get a very modest bill done; if they focused exclusively on high-capacity magazines or hollow-point bullets, they might peel off enough Republicans in the House to make it happen. But Obama’s already invested too much rhetorically in something bigger so he’s obviously playing a longer game of getting the House GOP to spike a new assault-weapons ban and then hoping it helps deliver the House back to Pelosi in 2014.

One silver-y lining for Democrats from Pew, though: On this issue as with so many others, younger voters are firmly in their corner.

With the glaring exception of seniors, those demographics break just as you’d expect given the results of the national exit poll in November. But as I say, young voters are the key. Heavy gun regulation is impossible now but, unless something changes, might not be in another 10-20 years. Gun rights advocates had better ramp up their outreach to them, replete with efforts to encourage ownership (which correlates strongly with support for gun rights, as you might expect), to make them more comfortable with guns or else trouble’s on the way.

Does Obama understand people are buying guns like there’s no tomorrow because they’re scared to death of him and his communist cronies?

darwin on December 21, 2012 at 3:36 PM

Absolutely they do. They’re sleepless about it, desperately in a rush to find a way to stop us from doing so. Clueless that THEY are driving the pace of it with their incessant talk of bans and confiscation and constitution-violating ex post facto laws.

rayra on December 21, 2012 at 3:53 PM

People are buying guns like crazy, including high cap mags. Do they really think are going to surrender them willingly?

No, I don’t think that they think these will be surrendered willingly.

And I’m not sure they care, frankly.

It’s always been my opinion that 99% of the anti-gun crowd are the one’s that have never owned/seen/shot a gun in their entire lives. They’re absolutely convinced brainwashed that if there’s a gun in the house, it’s GOING to compel everyone within a 1000 yard radius to pick it up and shoot some one..or just fall off a shelf and murder every one in the house.

You are the 1%.

Arizona’s total gun-death rate – a figure that includes murders, suicides, accidents, police shootings and other unclassified killings – was nearly 16 per 100,000. The national rate was about 10.

More guns, more likely to be accidents, also no breakdown of criminals shooting other criminals (sure to bring a tear to any liberal’s eye).

The only group of people liberals don’t seem to want to disarm. When an innocent bystander is killed by gang violence, no lib gets up and says we need to get illegal guns out of people’s hands and start demanding police ‘do something about it’–like sweeps of neighborhoods known to have high levels of gang violence and illegal weapons. I bet the cops would land a treasure trove of real assault rifles that are military-issue.

But they wouldn’t want to try that, I guess.

We had a liberal lady friend. She would espouse on how Guns were Evil. I would point out that Guns were tools.

One day, several years ago, she said, “Guns aren’t tools, guns exist only to kill people and that’s all they do.”

So I went into my Gunsafe and pulled out a Ruger Blackhaws .357 Magnum (if you are unfamiliar it’s like the gun the Cowboys use in the old western films).

I put a towel on the table, and loaded the pistol.

From her look you’d have thought I brought a poisonous snake into the room, she was genuinly terified even being that close to the thing.

I laid the Blackhawk on the towel, took three steps back and shouted, “Kill!” “Get Her!” “Go, Kill!”

She raced out of the house and we haven’t heard from her since.

Has the NRA ever thought of making somebody other then an old white guy their president? It might help if they can find somebody who is qualified.

further proof that conservatives are people whose social-emotional development stopped at 13.

We had a liberal lady friend.

I laid the Blackhawk on the towel, took three steps back and shouted, “Kill!” “Get Her!” “Go, Kill!”

She raced out of the house and we haven’t heard from her since.

jaydee_007 on December 21, 2012 at 4:28 PM

who cares if you have no friends left and the neighbors give you weird looks, at least you made the baby jesus proud.

sesquipedalian on December 21, 2012 at 4:42 PM

That dude stabbed two people in Chicago. Someone really needs to petition the White House to restrict all Walmarts from selling those 12-knife butcher block sets as they are all tragedies waiting to happen.

If you people were really so worried about gun violence, you would care that Obama sent 1,500 or more guns into Mexico to be used by criminals for drug trafficking, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of people. You have no moral authority here.

When the economy collapses, those young’uns(along with every other American) will treasure their right to protect themselves with a gun.

Doughboy on December 21, 2012 at 2:50 PM

Dead wrong, unfortunately. When SHTF, they will treasure a chance to rob someone who is physically less able than them and is not protected by a gun.

The ‘tolerant’, ‘erudite’, ‘nuanced’, ‘liberal’, ‘ecclectic’, ‘understanding’, ‘empathetic’, etc. left on disaply.

If hypocrisy and stupidity would hurt you’d scream incessantly.

Heh. A heavy lift, if you do it lawfully. What’s that you say? That part doesn’t matter?

Funny. But it really is mean of you to pretend that a gun is dangerous without a high-capacity magazine and one of those things on the shoulder that goes up.
