Obama Feels ‘Constrained’ By Founders On Guns

From The Blaze:


Obama: Gun Control Won’t Lead to Confiscation Because ‘I Am Constrained by a System Our Founders Put in Place’

By Jason Howerton | April 3, 2013

DENVER (TheBlaze/AP) — Ratcheting up pressure for Congress to limit access to guns, President Barack Obama said Wednesday that recent steps by Colorado to tighten its gun laws show “there doesn’t have to be a conflict” between keeping citizens safe and protecting Second Amendment rights to gun ownership.

“I believe there doesn’t have to be a conflict in reconciling these realities,” Obama said in Denver, where he stepped up his call for background checks for all gun purchases and renewed his demand that Congress at least vote on banning assault weapons and limiting access to large-capacity ammunition magazines.

The president dismissed gun owners’ concerns that gun control legislation could be a stepping stone to gun confiscation in the U.S., saying “I am constrained by a system our founders put in place.” …

As the slug line notes, this article is a combination of an AP’s report and the Blaze’s report. However, it is interesting to note that the AP’s article does not include the above quote for some odd reason.

In any case, does this mean that Obama would confiscate guns if he could? (That is a rhetorical question.) Those dead white slave owners are keeping him down.

But something tells me Obama will have a lot more ‘flexibility’ on gun control, as well as amnesty, climate change, and a lot of other things, if the Democrats do manage to win control of the House. And the Founders be damned.

    I thought that was what the founders wanted, constrained goverment so that it couldn’t run rough shod over our rights and pass whatever laws they liked.

    tyranny (working definition) – having the sole power to decide whether one has the right to act or not act, unconstrained by the Constitution, the courts, the States, an opposition party, or against the will or consent of the people.
