Gun Control: Obama Issues Strongest Call for Gun Control By Politician in a Generation

In what is being described as the strongest call for gun control by a politician in a generation, President Obama made what the corporate media labeled his “most impassioned” speech ever Sunday night in an address to grieving families in Newtown, Connecticut.

Not to be outdone by what many labeled his Oscar Winning acting performance during a news conference Friday, Obama seemed to wipe away tears as he spoke to 15 victims families and others in the town that has been shattered after the horrific mass shootings that left 20 children dead.

Opting to continue calls for tighter gun laws that has been echoed throughout the liberal media since the tragedy, Obama declared that now is the time for change.

You can read the full transcript of his speech below with key parts in bold:

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you, Governor.  To all the families, first responders, to the community of Newtown, clergy, guests — Scripture tells us:  “…do not lose heart.  Though outwardly we are wasting away…inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

We gather here in memory of twenty beautiful children and six remarkable adults.  They lost their lives in a school that could have been any school; in a quiet town full of good and decent people that could be any town in America.

Here in Newtown, I come to offer the love and prayers of a nation.  I am very mindful that mere words cannot match the depths of your sorrow, nor can they heal your wounded hearts.  I can only hope it helps for you to know that you’re not alone in your grief; that our world too has been torn apart; that all across this land of ours, we have wept with you, we’ve pulled our children tight.  And you must know that whatever measure of comfort we can provide, we will provide; whatever portion of sadness that we can share with you to ease this heavy load, we will gladly bear it.  Newtown — you are not alone.

As these difficult days have unfolded, you’ve also inspired us with stories of strength and resolve and sacrifice.  We know that when danger arrived in the halls of Sandy Hook Elementary, the school’s staff did not flinch, they did not hesitate.  Dawn Hochsprung and Mary Sherlach, Vicki Soto, Lauren Rousseau, Rachel Davino and Anne Marie Murphy — they responded as we all hope we might respond in such terrifying circumstances — with courage and with love, giving their lives to protect the children in their care.

We know that there were other teachers who barricaded themselves inside classrooms, and kept steady through it all, and reassured their students by saying “wait for the good guys, they’re coming”; “show me your smile.”

And we know that good guys came.  The first responders who raced to the scene, helping to guide those in harm’s way to safety, and comfort those in need, holding at bay their own shock and trauma because they had a job to do, and others needed them more.

And then there were the scenes of the schoolchildren, helping one another, holding each other, dutifully following instructions in the way that young children sometimes do; one child even trying to encourage a grown-up by saying, “I know karate.  So it’s okay.  I’ll lead the way out.”  (Laughter.)

As a community, you’ve inspired us, Newtown.  In the face of indescribable violence, in the face of unconscionable evil, you’ve looked out for each other, and you’ve cared for one another, and you’ve loved one another.  This is how Newtown will be remembered.  And with time, and God’s grace, that love will see you through.

But we, as a nation, we are left with some hard questions.  Someone once described the joy and anxiety of parenthood as the equivalent of having your heart outside of your body all the time, walking around.  With their very first cry, this most precious, vital part of ourselves — our child — is suddenly exposed to the world, to possible mishap or malice.  And every parent knows there is nothing we will not do to shield our children from harm.  And yet, we also know that with that child’s very first step, and each step after that, they are separating from us; that we won’t — that we can’t always be there for them.  They’ll suffer sickness and setbacks and broken hearts and disappointments.  And we learn that our most important job is to give them what they need to become self-reliant and capable and resilient, ready to face the world without fear.

And we know we can’t do this by ourselves.  It comes as a shock at a certain point where you realize, no matter how much you love these kids, you can’t do it by yourself.  That this job of keeping our children safe, and teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community, and the help of a nation.  And in that way, we come to realize that we bear a responsibility for every child because we’re counting on everybody else to help look after ours; that we’re all parents; that they’re all our children.

This is our first task — caring for our children.  It’s our first job.  If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right.  That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.

And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we are meeting our obligations?  Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children — all of them — safe from harm?  Can we claim, as a nation, that we’re all together there, letting them know that they are loved, and teaching them to love in return?  Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?

I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves, the answer is no.  We’re not doing enough.  And we will have to change.

Since I’ve been President, this is the fourth time we have come together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by a mass shooting.  The fourth time we’ve hugged survivors.  The fourth time we’ve consoled the families of victims.  And in between, there have been an endless series of deadly shootings across the country, almost daily reports of victims, many of them children, in small towns and big cities all across America — victims whose — much of the time, their only fault was being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

We can’t tolerate this anymore.  These tragedies must end.  And to end them, we must change.  We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true.  No single law — no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society.

But that can’t be an excuse for inaction.  Surely, we can do better than this.  If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that — then surely we have an obligation to try.

In the coming weeks, I will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens — from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators — in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. 

Because what choice do we have?  We can’t accept events like this as routine.  Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?  Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?

All the world’s religions — so many of them represented here today — start with a simple question:  Why are we here?  What gives our life meaning?  What gives our acts purpose?  We know our time on this Earth is fleeting.  We know that we will each have our share of pleasure and pain; that even after we chase after some earthly goal, whether it’s wealth or power or fame, or just simple comfort, we will, in some fashion, fall short of what we had hoped.  We know that no matter how good our intentions, we will all stumble sometimes, in some way.  We will make mistakes, we will experience hardships.  And even when we’re trying to do the right thing, we know that much of our time will be spent groping through the darkness, so often unable to discern God’s heavenly plans.

There’s only one thing we can be sure of, and that is the love that we have — for our children, for our families, for each other.  The warmth of a small child’s embrace — that is true.  The memories we have of them, the joy that they bring, the wonder we see through their eyes, that fierce and boundless love we feel for them, a love that takes us out of ourselves, and binds us to something larger — we know that’s what matters.  We know we’re always doing right when we’re taking care of them, when we’re teaching them well, when we’re showing acts of kindness.  We don’t go wrong when we do that.

That’s what we can be sure of.  And that’s what you, the people of Newtown, have reminded us.  That’s how you’ve inspired us.  You remind us what matters.  And that’s what should drive us forward in everything we do, for as long as God sees fit to keep us on this Earth.

“Let the little children come to me,” Jesus said, “and do not hinder them — for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

Charlotte.  Daniel.  Olivia.  Josephine.  Ana.  Dylan.  Madeleine.  Catherine.  Chase.  Jesse.  James.  Grace.  Emilie.  Jack.  Noah.  Caroline.  Jessica.  Benjamin.  Avielle.  Allison.

God has called them all home.  For those of us who remain, let us find the strength to carry on, and make our country worthy of their memory.

May God bless and keep those we’ve lost in His heavenly place.  May He grace those we still have with His holy comfort.  And may He bless and watch over this community, and the United States of America.  (Applause.)

After reading the transcript of the speech it becomes startling clear that President Obama and his globalist backers in the corporate controlled media are going to do whatever it takes to exploit this horrific strategy to further their own political aims.

To act like we are dishonoring the dead children by not outlawing or limiting private gun ownership is a dangerous fallacy that could be used to not only attack the 2nd Amendment, but its precedent could lead to limitations on other freedoms we as Americans hold dear. (1st amendment in particular)

  • Dumbie

    If my child had been killed there I would sue the school board, state and federal government for not protecting my child, by making gun free zones. If my town takes the cops out of the schools here I will raise Cain.

    • Jean

      Don’t bother suing them – that takes money out of taxpayer’s pockets.

      Burn them alive, in public. You will have to pay the penalty, of course – but MAKE IT PUBLIC, leave NO QUESTION why you did what you did. Cockroaches don’t like light and heat… And BTW, feel free to wear a mask (Guy Falkes seems like a good possibility these days.) It’s not YOUR FACE that is necessary; it is THEIR PUBLIC EXECUTION. And if a few “innocents” – like their children – are in the way? Oh, well, collaterol damage. Yes, I can be that heartless; they’ve done it to your children, why can’t you? Drop the melodrama, it’s a F*cking WAR, dammit. If they are the only ones who recognize that, we will lose because we don’t show up.

      There will be people who will scream me down, because I am (1) advocating killing a “human being”, and (2) have not done so myself.

      RE:#1: these aren’t human beings; they are animals, no will or conscience of any note. No intrinsic value, save as an instrument of evil. They CHOOSE to create these problems. Like a herd chooses to stampede… They just want YOU in the way – but your children will be acceptable proxies. Pawns on the board.

      RE: #2: Not yet. I have no weapons, but I have LOTS of knowledge. Other than that, I’ll keep quiet. When the time comes, I’ll need to be open and vocal – then I’ll need to disappear again. You should make sure you can do the same – Bug out protocols, planned insertion and sescape routes, a few allies or dupes to run around in masks while you disappear, a route across running water, anything to alter your scent (try food changes; then go back to original diet afterwards, and use harsh stuff straight off – asparagus comes to mind, changes body smell. Same with curry.) Also someone who will make a good solid alibi.

      These people are playing for your souls. You can’t BARGAIN with the devil, he’s the master liar. You CAN use direct conflict against him, though. And you MUST be willing to use these same events to PUNISH those who would destroy us: Call for LOOSENING of gun regulations; call for HANDLING bullies, not ignoring them, or building a case, or any BS (Columbine); call for INTELLIGENT responses and EMOTIONAL dialogues – make that fire burn itself out, and REFUSE TO ENGAGE! Let them cry their tears and then figure out how to show them for what they are.

      A sympathetic cop or two might time Police response times, for instance, and publish them online – PROOF that they can’t get boots on the ground in less than “X” minutes. Mark kid’s hands with a marker in this drill – tell those marked to deliver a note to Mommy and Daddy telling the parents how long the police took to this simulated assault – they might have had to claim the child’s body, had it been real. And believe me, anyone with basic knowledge of a knife could do the same thing… GUNS aren’t the issue here.

      DO NOT ENGAGE these psychopaths; destroy them as they would destroy you. Same techniques they use can be turned on them – Blacks are over-represented in crimes; drugs are the primary reason they are in jail; Whites aren’t any MORE civilized than they were, they are LESS – so nothing worth emulating there. (I am white, BTW.)
      Turn their talking points against them, and treat them like you would a rabid dog – which I concede is an insult to rabid dogs, but… analogies only go so far.

      There is NO EXCUSE for our government turning on us:
      - Demanding “papers” simply because you are present;
      - Stop and search, because you’re there;
      - Drone surveillance because we’re present;
      - Illegal wiretapping used against US, to DEFEND THE POLICE;
      - Wiretapping (includes recording activities, such as by police dashboard cams) NOT applied to Police – for recording the SAME incident as the wiretapping incident of last bullet point;
      - Union review of police firings – results in returning bad cops to the streets;
      - Taxed on income earned outside the US;
      - – for 10 years following expatriation, too;
      - Taxed on SS/Medicaire incomes – somethign we ALREADY paid taxes on;
      - Paying more taxes per person per year than the colonists did, and at a bigger percentage of our incomes;
      - The wealthiest have, in fact, gotten WEALTHIER while OUR incomes have been devalued, and in many cases FALLEN in dollars as well as value;
      - “Government Motors”
      - – No bailouts of the “little people”, just those “too big to fail”

      I don’t like Liberal ideologies, but a few are CORRECT – they’re just being turned AGAINST the lumpenproletariat. Occupy Wall Street was backed by George Soros… You think he didn’t get something out of that, somehow?

      More police powers? A distraction near election time? Bribing people for “free” publicity? “Educating” the masses (wrongly, to vote Democrat)?
      You MUST get the idea.

      There is a CANCER eating our society. It was set in motion before the Civil War / War of Northern Aggression / War for central control of the states. It has NEVER been addressed, we just got lucky enough with various wars and boom-bust-boom cycles that people overall got wealthier. It is no longer happening, the government is STILL seeking full control: Think Matrix, only with people running it instead of machines. And we’re not in a pod, living a virtual life, it’s our REAL life that is being consumed, just drawing our lives to power their plans. (Plans, not plants, want to be clear that’s not a typo.)

      When will people respond? When they snap the collar on your necks? And which collar? School loans? Car loans? Mortgage? Tax debt? Criminal conviction? children immunized into oblivion, then drugged to compliance?

      I KNOW I sould like a paranoid / delusional / schizoid / whatever. But there are so FEW willing to DO anything… NO ONE is willing to risk losing a damn thing – so you lose DAILY instead, as your children are programmed, your wealth stolen, your future mortgaged, your children mortgaged and even killed, your RIGHTS, imbued by your CREATOR, stripped by government fiat…

      WTF am I, a John The Baptist here?

      • http://NONE Arizona

        JEAN YOU’LL LOVE THIS,last summer I was in trinidad colorado,amazing…THERE was about 30 young chinese military kids walking around town,SO I stopped them and inquired as to how they had gotten into america with automatic weapons,they said they had come in a chinese aircraft,and were using a military suppiled bus to travel around to see colorado,SO I asked them what their purpose was? they said they were looking to see who was going to get what town for their area,and I told them they might want to go back home(china) and tell their commanders if they thought we would be giving them america,THEY were dead wrong,I told them they would be going home in a body bag,if they went home at all,OUR military was helping them,and has sold us out big time,remember you were warned………….THEY ARE HERE NOW……..

    • http://NONE Arizona

      Dumbie,that was a GOVERNMENT PAID KILL TEAM,the state police caught a van in front of the school with FOUR guys in it,and chased a fifth one into the woods before catching him,they admitted,they were there to carry out that job for our government,THOSE KIDS WERE KILLED BY OUR GOVERNMENT,the shooter never had a RIFLE,all he had were hand guns,the rifle story was made up,NO RIFLE,get it?????FALSE FLAG ATTACK to demonize guns,to con americans into losing there guns over a killing they did…………

  • Caveat Emptor

    It’s not really about gun ownership, it’s about ownership.

  • http://T Evie

    Just curious, how many families have become destabilized living in poverty, because of policies to benefit banks and corporations. I bet more mentally ill are being produced daily. Only a fool would not be depressed to work harder for less. No win situations create desperation.
    The government and corporate agenda of creating low wage jobs just to bring the unemployment numbers down can not be too helpful for families. On top of the far right telling them they are lazy if they want medical or food stamps.
    If I were the populace I would be more outraged about this. I guess too dumb or really uncaring.
    Americans seem more and more likely to get themselves fired up about events they cannot change or do anythung about.
    Much like the do nothing politicans and corporations.
    Is this real change?

    • Jean

      I think people CAN do something…
      Just most are too “civilized” to do what MUST be done.

      And they FORGET that our ENEMIES have NO SUCH COMPUNCTION.

      • http://NONE Arizona

        JEAN its way to late for the people to do what should have been done a long time ago,OBAMA was brough here to start a civil war and he won’t stop till he does,THE SAD thing is they want america disarmed so the chinese can have america,they can’t take this country ARMED AND THEY KNOW IT,the police will be cannon fadder,the military will be stabbed in the back and are fooled to,the whole plan is a one world government,ruled by none other then the anti-christ(OBAMA),IF americans weren’t so dam stupid they see this coming and would be a lot readyer then they’ll be……..america is returning to the 1820′s like it or not,its the price of being caught asleep…………

  • Stef

    Stop labelling the medias as “liberal”. There is no such thing as “Liberal” or “Conservative” massmedia, only “Globalist”. The media will show left or right according to the best interrests of the Globalists, period. One day it’s gun control and social programs for all, the next it’s Imperial war at infinitum. Don’t you see? Depart from those ridiculous stand liberal vs conservative stand points, they exist only to divide and conquer.

    • Marc B

      +1. I use the term post-modern leftist (or neolib among friends) to describe the current batch of authoritarians. There is nothing “liberal” about them. The right has conceded so much in the last 150 years that there isn’t much to left to conserve. Strip away the phony web issues of each partyand theirs not a dimes worth of difference between them.

  • Intrinsic

    How come we never hear from the main stream propaganda machine about Obama’s favorite weapon of choice, the drone, and all the families killed with his drones.

  • Kulafarmer

    ELECTED OFFICIALS TRYING TO LIMIT OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ARE TYRANTS
    THE SECOND AMMENDMENT IS WRITTEN FOR DEFENSE OF TYRANNY,

    TIME TO UNITE TO FIGHT TYRANNY, BE PREPARED

    • Forrest D Rader Jr

      Amen

  • Paul

    I think Obama should set an example and get rid of all his secreat service guards and declare the white house a gun free zone!!
    I bet that will work out as well as declaring schools gun free zones!!

  • flabbergasted

    gun control is not about guns!
    it’s about control!!
    control of you and every aspect of your life!
    people had better wakeup and realize “THEY” are drawing “a line in the sand” and soon everyone will have to choose which side you will stand on.

    BTW Jean’s comment was great!

  • x

    so making guns illegal will take them off the streets? we should make meth and heroin illegal!

  • Marc B

    Confiscation will likely be used as a negotiating chip with republicans unless he wants to bring on a civil war.

    • Forrest D Rader Jr

      I say bring it and remove these tyrants in office and the media

    • http://NONE Arizona

      MARC the anti-christ (OBAMA) was brough here to start a civil war and take down america for the chinese,hillary sold the entire USA to china last summer in a deal for more money from china,thats why all americas reserve food is being shipped to them as they believe they own america now,THEY DO have full intentions of causing a FAMINE IN AMERICA to get americans into the FEMA DEATH CAMPS to kill them,then the whole country will be handed over to the chinese,sounds like fun,don’t it…………..

  • Ken, your UK friend

    Wow! Where do I start ref Jean’s rant? Rabid dogs cant help it. They are ill. Not so with your perceived enemy my friend. Unsure and as yet lacking full direction there is 1 anchor I can hold on to:- Do not smoke, drink, take illegal drugs or accept mind altering prescribed meds. Preppers stock up on whisky bottles to use as barter. I say what goes around comes around and dealing in death substances is against my better nature. Follow your heart and it is within my heart to wish all a fantastic Xmas. Cheers!

    • Jean

      All too true. (Though for a minute I wondered if you were comparing ME to a rabid dog… ;-) )

      Merry Christmas to you as well – But re: posions, recall Terence and King Mithridates. ;-) He died old..

  • J FEMA Reg 4

    They can enact any ‘law’ and the court can ‘rule’ however they want. If they go after my neighbors guns, it’s like going after mine. I would rather die on my feet than on my knees. Bottom line: You want them, come and take them!!

    Once they begin the swating of citizens to enforce they’re ‘rule’, do they really think we will sit back and take it? No. That’s when our offensive begins. We will no longer simply react, we will proactively persue the traitors (oh, and btw, with the help of our active duty friends in the US military).

    • GrandpaSpeaks

      Roger that red flag turning into a red line. Oathkeepers are my heros. May you and your active duty friends fare well.

    • http://NONE Arizona

      J-fema your right,I talked to a col.in the army,he told me a story about how the police gang had beat up his wife,BAD MISTAKE,broke her jaw,dropped their son and broke his arm,NOW when the police call the military,there will be no help coming,he said THEY were going to wait for the people to get revenge on them and then come and take control,the cops are screwed and they don’t even know it,BUT he did say they would probly have the russians with them,so remember when they come in US military uniforms,THEY WILL BE RUSSIANS or SOME OTHER NATO MILITARY with them(RED DAWN)be ready,he said they been planning this a long time,and are going to try to take the USA…OH,he also said the military gets morning up dates from OBAMA,every morning about who has guns and where they live……every morning………..

  • http://NONE Arizona

    I heard they will ban guns and offer 5,000 dollar rewards for the name of owners and big rewards for preppers and christians who might own guns,of course my guess is they will never see there reward for the information,and the gun owners are being demonized now,SO it really looks like war,I’am not going to a fema camp,I do think most americans are sound asleep and will wind up in one,simply because they have no food,AND WE all know the anti-christ will save us,like new orleans,and hurricane sandy,but really,wake up your neighbors,weather they want to be awakened or not,other wise you are going to have a problem with them,better now then later……….
