President Obama commented on his “greatest frustration” during his years in office. His greatest source of frustration is not the fact that jobs remain scarce and the economy remains weak. It’s not the fact that his signature legislative achievement, Obamacare, is a mess and was rolled out poorly and remains unpopular. It’s not even the fact that he hasn’t yet thrown the nation’s borders entirely open (though he’s certainly getting there).

Barack Obama is frustrated because you just won’t let him send federal agents to your house and take your guns. You can tell in the clip, from the tone of his voice, that he is very displeased with the fact that you can still buy a gun. He dislikes that fact, intensely.

Obama says a few things in the clip that, upon closer inspection, turn out to be untrue. He says gun violence is rising. It is not. He says you should have to undergo a background check before buying a gun, which you already do have to do if you buy from a federally licensed firearm dealer.

Obama also praises Australia’s approach to guns. Which is praise from the President of the United States for full-on confiscation of guns. Because as Charles Cooke points out, that’s exactly what Australia did.

OBAMA: Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since.

Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this.

In other words, the president of the United States just praised a government for forcefully removing all semi-automatic firearms (i.e. pretty much all of the guns in America) from its citizenry.

Let me be clear, as Obama likes to say: You simply cannot praise Australia’s gun-laws without praising the country’s mass confiscation program. That is Australia’s law.

So, it’s official and on the record now. Despite his acknowledgement that the Second Amendment exists, President Barack Obama is frustrated that you didn’t let him do away with it — and with your natural right to defend yourself.

This man wants to render all Americans into a state of permanent victimhood.

It’s fair to say that if he had been honest about his beliefs in 2008, he would never have been elected president.

If I recall correctly, the Aussies have had a couple of mass shootings even after the confiscations and they've had a couple of mass stabbings as well. Even Scotland has had a mass stabbing episode at a school.
There is this: a stabbing episode is far less likely to end with as many fatalities as a mass shooting episode. You can't stab a knife into a crowd from 20 feet away.

It's much fairer to say that if Democrats in general were forced to be honest about their intentions for our country, they would all have been stood up in front of a firing squad for capital treason more than a decade ago.

Confiscate them from everyone except gangbangers, because that'd be, ya' know, racist.

Watch his "militia" be very well heeled with full auto M-16, CARs, etc.

Was there ever any doubt that President Dog Turd wanted to confiscate American's guns?

He simply lied, and had Joe Biden running around the country lying, about their intentions.

Time to impeach this sorry piece of fecal matter for failure to uphold the Constitution, which he solemnly swore to do.
