Obama Goes After The NRA In Latest Gun Control Speech…
Quote:President Obama on Monday tried to undercut National Rifle Association leaders and appeal directly to their membership, claiming gun owners support the “common-sense” gun control measures he’s proposed — and urging those supporters to “keep the pressure” on Congress.

The president spoke in Minnesota, in his first campaign-style stop as part of a second-term push for new firearms laws.

On the other side of that debate, the NRA has aggressively argued against Democrats’ call for a new and stronger assault-weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazines and universal background checks. But in a risky move, the president used his speech Monday to try and sideline America’s most powerful gun lobby.

“The overwhelming majority of gun owners think (universal background checks are) a good idea,” Obama said, referring to recent polling that shows most gun owners support background checks at gun shows and for private sales.

“So if we’ve got lobbyists in Washington claiming to speak for gun owners saying something different, we need to go to the source and reach out to people directly.

“We can’t allow those filters to get in the way of common sense,” Obama said.

He urged the public to call Congress and voice support for the proposals.

The NRA is unlikely to be drowned out. The group has vocally come out against universal background checks, saying that while they’ve supported such a system in the past, the overall process is too flawed. The group claims a universal background check system will put gun buyers through needless hassle, with little in the way of results.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

The simple fact that o-dumbass feels the need to address the NRA in a speech makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Perhaps I"ll donate more money to the NRA
..."The US are famous for their mass shootings because of guns...

And most of the "gun free" world is famous for the mass government sanctioned executions because of the lack of guns"...

We just need to keep hammering politicians and media that want gun control but hide behind security with "assault weapons" with high cap mags.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
Maybe he picked Minnesota because they are working to pass draconian gun laws like New York. They want to come into your house and inspect your storage. After you register, of course.

Quote: 9.14 Subd. 5. Registration of assault weapons. (a) A person who legally owned or

9.15possessed an assault weapon before February 1, 2013, and who desires to keep ownership

9.16or possession of the weapon shall comply with the following requirements:

9.17(1) submit to a background check conducted by the chief of police of the

9.18municipality in which the person resides, or if there is no police department the sheriff

9.19of the county in which the person resides, to confirm the person is not prohibited from

9.20possessing a firearm under state or federal law; and

9.21(2) unless the person is currently prohibited by law from possessing a firearm,

9.22immediately register the weapon with the appropriate law enforcement agency.

9.23(b) A person described in paragraph (a) shall comply with all of the following:
9.24(1) safely and securely store the assault weapon pursuant to the regulations adopted

9.25by the appropriate law enforcement agency;

9.27compliance with this subdivision;
