Cruz is staking his claim to be douchebag of the day tomorrow!

Short. Sweet. To the point. That’s the beauty Dave’s iPhone.

What am I missing here?

President Obama issues an executive order to ramp up enforcement of existing gun laws, and to clarify a few points on how to interpret these laws. He did close what amounted to a loophole as a result.

And predictably, there’s a public outrage on the "other side of the aisle"….they go crazy. It somehow became a story that he wants to take away guns, he’s a tyrant, he’s a dictator, etc, etc.

Amazing how things get misinterpreted, and how some people who choose only to listen to headlines get incorrect or incomplete information.

The crux of the argument is that more laws is not going to deter bad people from getting guns.

Meanwhile "The Dick" goes on about how we need to stop Muslims from entering the US. And the same people simply nod in agreement. Because, you know, stopping people from coming here is going to deter the threat of terrorism.

Never mind that some armed idiots take over a government building. They’re white, and they invoke a christian god in their argument. So they’re not terrorists. No, that’s just people standing up to perceived tyranny.

Unclear concept

Obama is set to make a statement about gun violence and perhaps issue an executive order on the topic.

And naturally people on the other side go crazy. It’s part of an agenda. People have the right to defend themselves. Their rights under the second amendment. Blah. Blah. Blah.

May I remind everyone that the 2nd amendment reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

And while people certainly have the right to bear arms. There is no mention on what type of arms, so some assume that it should include automatic weapons. But why?

In any event it *does* explicitly use the words “well regulated” which would indicate that it a topic such as gun control is mandated.

How do people miss that.

Pick and choose the words you like, while forgetting others you don’t.

Just like other things people quote regularly.
