America’s greatest gun salesman*

Our Barry Hussein made a big announcement today of nothing much new about gun control. It was a king’s decree, the kind presidents (particularly this one) like best ’cause they can skip the hard work of negotiating with Congress.

“Never mind that he couldn’t get a Democrat-controlled Congress to pass any of these proposals. Never mind that none of the mass shooters got their firearms from a gun show or the kind of casual seller that these regulations target. Just as the drunk looks for his lost keys under the streetlight because that’s where the light is, Obama focuses his energies where it is easiest.”

Energies? The former leader of the Choom Gang? That the courts may later overrule him is a chance Wormtongue is willing to take to make a piddling media splash. Then it’s back to another round of golf and the permanent vacation.

UPDATE: *”Shares of Smith & Wesson jumped 11 percent Tuesday [Jan. 5], to $25.86, when the president unveiled his new plan for expanding background checks on gun sales, while Sturm, Ruger & Co.’s stock climbed nearly 7 percent, to $65.54.”  Via PJMedia.

MORE: “Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it.” Not in our Barry Hussein’s case, there isn’t.

Ma “fighting” for the little people? Hardly

More like taking their money for her own use.

“…fundraising experts and people affiliated with some nonprofits on the list — including the Boys and Girls Club — grumbled that the hefty price tag for securing a Clinton speech is a significant drain on small charities’ fundraising and that community-based nonprofits could put the money to better use…”

Better than listening to Slick Willie and Ma Barker opine? Forsooth.

(Politico reveals that small charities have paid $11.7 million for speeches by Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton since 2001. So watch whom you contribute your money to, eh?)
