Obama in Harvard Law Review: Prayer Won’t Do It; We Need Gun Control

Nearly nine years after mocking “bitter” Americans who “cling to guns or religion,” President Obama used a column in the Harvard Law Review to assert that prayer in America is insufficient; America needs gun control.

Politico reports it was April 5, 2008, when Obama spoke to Democrat Party donors in San Francisco, saying:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

On January 5, 2017, he wrote in the Harvard Law Review:

But as I’ve said many times: “Our thoughts and prayers are not enough.” They alone won’t “capture the heartache and grief and anger we should feel,” and they do “nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America.” We have a responsibility to act.

  • Dennis B Anderson says:

    Obama is not talking to the back bone of the american public when he talks gun control. You want some sanity back in the USA bring back the death penalty and dont give them time for appeals its a done deal. There is no deturrent for crazies whats to stop them? It was the will of Allah if they are forced to watch Oprah in a cell block with their muslim brothren. All the dead people that risked their lives to put them there only to have the head muslim terrorist let them out. Ever hear the good guy always finishes last
    how about not at all?

  • Bob says:

    OJ used a knife; Cain used a rock. it’s the heart and not the hand that commits the crime.
    That being said, I am a firm believer in gun control…feet should width, both hands on the grip, control your breathing, squeeze and do not jerk trigger, etc
    Mr. Obama needs to see how well “gun control” has worked in Chicago, Washington DC, Baltimore, etc. Each has strong gun control laws and they work soooooooo well. Each is also economically depressed, jobs are scarce and long term Democratic leadership. Maybe we just need to ensure Democrats do not get guns as they seemingly can not be trusted with them.

    Perhaps if Monkey turned to the real God instead of his Muslim moon-god, he wouldn’t make such a stupid statement. But then, Monkey, like Soros, fancies himself a god. He’s also too stupid to put together how gun crimes and “gun-free zones” go hand in hand. Sure, Monkey. Give up our guns so we can be subjugated by narcissistic despots like you or Hilldog. The “getting rid of legal guns for public safety” lie worked in Nazi Germany, but here, I don’t think so.
    Trump’s election shows that freaks like the MSM and you have been exposed for the liars you are.

  • justinwachin says:

    If memory serves me correct one of Dylan Roof’s victims was a state legislator which advocated gun control. Roof stopped to reload. If someone would have been armed or attempted to take him down while he was reloading the death toll would have been less.

    Prayer can accomplish a lot. We are not going to be able to get rid of all the guns and ammo in existence. Even if we were successful, evil people would still find ways to harm others. We need to push for a change of heart in people. That starts with prayer. God can solve more problems than any president ever will.

      The problem is spiritual, and no legislation is going to fix it.

  • Tiger says:

    I don’t think he gets it. Just like so many who during these hearings for Trump’s picks they tried to get those people to conform to their old ways and most were sly enough to slip past them. it is OVER people O is out.

    O when a Senator voted to take the weapons away from the Ukraine that is fact look it up and then when Ukraine asked for our help when president O said sorry can’t help you, that was no Treaty with Clinton just an agreement and then what happened? Without guns what happened? O also removed the Shields from all our Slavic allies. He now has American troops in Poland.

    We know what happens when a countries citizens are helpless while the government holds the guns. Get out of our way O and hopefully you will be tried for Treason. You sorry, lowlife, scum, dung filled, blue lipped, vicious, obnoxious, disgusting, stinking, Muslim.

  • Mys77 says:

    Obama is a pos. Exactly where is gun violence occuring? Small towns with people who pray and own guns? …or demonrat controlled cities who abhor God, Christianity, the bible, and prayer? Which would you rather have…, a gun in the hands of a Christian, or a gun in the hands of a non Christian?

  • Mort Leith says:

    Uh huh,,, this GA*Ymuzlim is so clueless he thinks that CRIMINALS who already ignore our laws regarding Rape & Murder,,
    will magically obey his gun laws…

    1. Tiger says:

      No he thinks anything he says means something. He is dead man walking and doesn’t even know it.

  • mort_f says:

    Gee, He finally actually wrote something in the Harvard Law Review? When he was its editor, he couldn’t find a pen.

  • CrustyOldGeezer says:

    “Gun Control” won’t work until we get a solid grip on “politician CONTROL” with a minimum of 10 years in prison for violating their OATH OF OFFICE for the FIRST OFFENSE.
    Second offense, or more committed before prosecution of the first offense results in loss of 100$ of all assets and loss f Citizenship for his/her family.

    The family benefited and it is an ADDED DETERRENT.

    1. Tiger says:

      “Politician Control” EXACTLY and pull them out of office, no security details, no nothing live like you want us to live. This walking, talking shithouse is going to have security for life, living in a 22,000 a month rented home in D.C. in a no fly over zone and surrounded by a huge fence.

      I am waiting for the day he gets his.

      1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

        I’m thinking he has a better chance of living out his life in Club Gitmo.

        1. Tiger says:

          So deserving with a goat suit on and a hole in the right place and with a room mate who is the biggest guy in the camp.

          This was on an Israeli site.

          1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            Actually Tiger, I think that would be his ideal.

            Rosie would be a better pick for his cell mate.

          2. Tiger says:

            Only if she had a 12 inch dildo.

          3. CrustyOldGeezer says:

            There ya go again Tiger.

            Always trying to keep the bamster happy.

            NOPE! Just her and no gag for her mouth.

        1. Tiger says:

          O care has much more in it than just health or rather destroying health. I only read the parts that I was interested in when they had it at our library. Two huge books I mean huge so I looked to what insurances would continue to be acceptable under O care, employees responsibilities, the tax, and a few other things but it is much more complicated and far reaching like you say.

          1. The Redhawk says:

            I just hope that hIS Family someday will have to LIVE on BHOZO CARE!!! or in a Mud hut in KENYA

          2. Tiger says:

            Isn’t that the truth and Kenya is mad at O because he promised to bring their merchandise to America and to help them but didn’t. Last trip to Europe O was met with rioters everywhere he went telling him to go home. The news never covered any of it or so much more O did. It is going to come out now.

          3. The Redhawk says:

            Well IMAGINE THIS…..Bhozo pardoms Tranny Manning…Assange says :” if i can get the same I can Make a dump on everything I have @ Wiki Leaks” to Bury BHO, Clinton, Kerry , CBC, and Most of the Fubar(D) party anarchists…” Would that drive them to OPEN more CELLS at GITMO!!!!!

          4. Tiger says:

            LMAO “Tranny Manning” yeh and lets 10 more from Gitmo go I tell ya someone needs to superglue his feet to the floor and his hands. Assange said that? Wow sure would love more but what he put out was more than enough.

          5. The Redhawk says:

            Aww Patriot Would that be a HOOT! MOOO chelle Cavortting with the HILDERBREAST as a man and SLICK having to bend over for BHOZO

          6. Tiger says:

            They all are perverts in the sexual department.

          7. The Redhawk says:

            these Anarchists also have Severe PERVERSION issues with HONESTY, ETHICS, Morality and above all PATRIOTISM

          8. Tiger says:

            Odd isn’t it how whacked out they are.

          9. The Redhawk says:

            “odd” yes but i say “WEIRD” caused by Generations of IMBREEDING IDIOTS!

          1. The Redhawk says:

            LIVER LIPS and his CLOWNS really SCREWED IT UP ROYALLY didn’t they?

          2. Tiger says:

            Sure did the Blue lipped, lop eared Muslim is something else.

          3. The Redhawk says:

            The More ‘FAREWELL” Speeches he makes the WEAKER and Silly he Becomes….Now the only Question left is WHO DOES HE BLAME for his UTTER FAILURES??? His “CORPSE” OF AMATEUR INTELLECTUAL BUT PRACTICAL FREE ADVISERS?? or MARS his Natural Habitat???
            His “LEGACY” Castle is bult on a SWAMP

          4. Tiger says:

            He is a boil on the ass of the world.

          5. The Redhawk says:

            IMPACTED COLONS can make ASSHOLES like HIM say a plethora of DUMBASSED STUFF

          6. Tiger says:

            LMAO for sure.

    2. Retired says:

      They have passed laws over the decades that we the public can not touch them once elected to WDC , just like their benefits that the voters have no control over.

      1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

        Actually, with new JUDGES on the federal benches, the odds of getting their ‘benefits’ packages and even their salaries cut back to REAL WORLD status.

        1. Retired says:

          They will not cut their own throats. It would be nice if something could be done.

      2. The Redhawk says:


        1. Retired says:

          You got that right , but congress will never allow it to get to the ballot box. Just like in many States you can not cross party lines in the primaries as well as some require you to claim a party.

          1. The Redhawk says:

            Oh I am with you….Primary Changes are LONG OVERDUE since INDEPENDENTS are Becoming the TRUE AMERICAN PARTY MAJORITY aka Sons of LIBERTY

          2. Retired says:

            In order for Independents to gain on the federal level election rules have to be changed and rules the same nation wide.

          3. The Redhawk says:

            Copy that~

  • Thomas Lee Mann says:

    More gun control! Insane! How has that worked out for Chicago with 700+ gun deaths last year? What we need is a National Concealed Carry law. “An armed society, is a polite society!”
