I didn't watch it and frankly don't care, but Politico reports "State of the Union 2014: Gun control mostly vanishes from speech."

A year later gun control is deader than dead. Obama, removed from the wound Newtown left on the nation, has narrowed his legislative agenda to immigration reform, raising the minimum wage and reinstating long-term unemployment benefits.
Hey, these collectivist bastards play a long game and anybody who thinks, like the NRA leadership, that amnesty has nothing to do with achieving citizen disarmament is smoking something.

Don 't think these schzoids won't, on the spur of the moment, try to EO their way back onto this topic. They really are sick enough to think nobody will even notice.

Pres. OogaBooga: The trouble with America, is that it's full of Americans. Well, if we can't get them out, we'll breed them out. Get me Bohner on the phone. Hey, I got a phone, right?

The speech was just Obama rattling his yap like he always does, but he did give the game away on the new tactic which is, of course, to import millions more of their own constituency. In the GOP response; (the official one I guess)To her credit! - Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers at least showed some courage standing up for the unborn. This is going to be another interesting year no doubt.

Wonderful News in case you haven't caught this - California Democrat Henry Waxman is going to retire. The bad news is he'll still be there til the end of the year probably, but what the heck even a small victory is a victory. The ACA disaster aka Obamacare no doubt has something to do with it :)

It may be off the "direct" radar for now, but don't think for one second that they've abandoned gun control.

With all the tyrannical crap being foisted on the country, UN treaties, Obamacare, reams of "policy" and "regulation" pouring out of bureaucratic agencies, NSA spying, loss of economic freedom, etc etc etc they are setting the framework to ban guns through other means.

Own a gun? Oh, then you can't access your bank account, your credit card doesn't work, and you can't get medical care. Then there's all this microchipping crap sneaking up.

So, Barry and his collectivists don't care about attacking gun rights directly. Their plan is to sweep in up indirectly, along with all the rest of our rights.

Before passage the Immigration reform and Control Act of 1986 (Simpson Mazzoli), the left wanted an amnesty for all "undocumented workers". The right refused on the grounds that we've all become accustomed to hearing. An amnesty would reward people who broke the law and be a slap in the face for those who followed the law. It would also signal to those still considering jumping the border that there was no downside to doing so. A compromise was reached that an amnesty would be granted to some of the "undocumented" but the border would be secured and employers would be required to certify their workers were legal residents of the USA.

Well, we all know how that worked out. We got the amnesty and 11 million more illegals. The border is still not secure and E-verify is still voluntary.

Any discussion of "immigration reform" is premature until ALL of the provisions of Simpson-Mazzoli are certified to be in place by congress as promised to the American people 28 years ago.

You cannot repeatedly lie to the American people without paying consequences. Or can you?
