Clinton Will Continue in Obama's Footsteps on Guns...and Then Some


President Obama gave one of his most powerful speeches ever today when announcing new executive action on guns:
Weeping at the memory of the children murdered during a shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School, President Obama unveiled a series of executive actions Tuesday aimed at preventing more mass killings.
In a powerful 30- minute address to the nation, Obama outlined his plans to slow the flood of firearms sales and keep weapons out of the hands of potential mass murderers.
But the normally stoic Obama grew visibly emotional when he recalled the murders of 20 first graders and six staffers three years ago by a gunman with an assault rifle at the grade school in Newton, Conn.
"Every time I think about those kids it gets me mad," Obama said as his eyes welled-up with tears. "And by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago every day."
While these certainly are good steps in the right direction, Obama acknowledged that this is just a small part of a longer and tougher fight:
And, yes, it will be hard, and it won’t happen overnight. It won’t happen during this Congress. It won’t happen during my presidency. But a lot of things don’t happen overnight. A woman’s right to vote didn’t happen overnight. The liberation of African Americans didn’t happen overnight. LGBT rights — that was decades’ worth of work. So just because it’s hard, that’s no excuse not to try.
And that's where the next president comes in:

Hillary didn't say it, but I will: Her frequent, forceful and eloquent talk about guns on the campaign trail over the past several months helped to push the president towards the actions he took today. So there should be no question whatsoever that she will not only enforce these new actions (unlike anyone on the GOP side) but go even further in the years to come to help keep Americans safe from the plague of gun violence.

Here she is talking about it in depth last month on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

    1. There will never be "gun control" kind of like how there is no drug control. Taking our guns will only lead to stabbings rather then shootings... Then what? Knife control? We have the right to protect ourselves. Cops can carry guns and shoot anyone they want and it doesn't even matter why. We the people die at the hands of our police officers for doing no wrong. Guns will go black market. If there is a murderer who wants a gun I promise you, he will find a way to get one. It will not stop shootings only piss off our country. If we can't have guns neither can her guards ... Oh wait, she's allowed to protect herself with guns right :) fuck hilliary and her gun control crap. GO TRUMP!!!!!

  11. Evolve Vapors as the name suggests has really made me Evolve into a better person. From helping people to Quit cigarettes and attracting people into the real world of Vaping, Evolve has done a great job! Though Vaping is growing faster and there are other ports where we can get our Vaporizers but what Evolve gives is different. Way different. It's quality. and value for money.
    Evolve is Education and is educating people in the most righteous manner possible. I mean who will do that? It's just that Evolve really cares about what its doing, about creating value. I'd say, blindly trust in Evolve and they'd show you the right path.
