As you’re probably aware of by now, President Obama hosted a town hall last night on the campus of George Mason University to try and peddle his gun control executive orders to the rest of America.

When the town hall was initially announced we thought the president would do what he always does when he has to face the nation: use Democrat plants to ask softball questions and avoid talking about the issues that really matter.

Imagine our surprise (and Obama’s) when Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu told President Obama why his gun control orders are going to fail at protecting us from mass shootings.

Sheriff Babeu: ”The talk, why we’re here, is all these mass shootings. And yet you’ve said in your executive actions, it wouldn’t have solved even one of these or even the terrorist attack.”

President Obama: “No, I didn’t say that.”

Sheriff Babeu:“Well, looking at the information, what would it have solved? The executive actions that you mentioned earlier, they are not written about in the Constitution.”

Watch the cringeworthy response from President Obama below:

  • Carolyn#OYSD

    “I’ve sworn the same oath as you to uphold the Constitution.”


    • Mark81150 Otter of Doomly

      What he didn’t address was when the Sheriff said.. “I DON”T make the laws, I enforce them”….
      Exactly what obama’s role is supposed to be… there isn’t any provision for him to create new law through presidential order… none….
      and obama has publicly refused to enforce laws he doesn’t like.. an act any sheriff could be removed from office for….
      The president who claims to have taught Constitutional law.. has zero grasp of even the most basic reading of it… There is no obama rule, that gives him, and only him the power to play God, Judge, Jury, legislature and defense lawyer.. but he claims all those roles when it’s convenient for him politically with his left wing base…
      How sad is it.. that the sheriff is the only one of the two of them who gets how the law works?
      Obama’s Harvard Law degree might as well have come in a box of cereal for all the good it does him… because he absolutely sucks at being a legal scholar…

          You’d think by now that King Barack’s servants his Presidential advisors would’ve made him ready to answer “with something intelligible” when asked what’s with his “mission-creep” from terrorism to gun-control in the first place. He’s never ready for it, never ready…That’s how accustomed he is to never hearing the word ‘NO’.

      • Perso Nasplit

        It amazes me when the president, of any political persuasion, makes executive orders/actions/memos/notes that create a new “law”. Most candidates say they will do the same thing. If there is a law made by congress, the president must enforce it by the letter of the law or not enforce it, but say why. Its up to congress and the courts to decide where to go from there. Problem is, they dont. Presidents could probably get away with murder(and probably have) because the balance of power has become entirely one sided.

  • Jeff

    Part of the presidents response was “I’m very proud that murders are down since I’ve been president”. He forgot to mention that gun sales are up under his presidency, which might be part of the reason for the reduced murder rate.

    • Mark81150 Otter of Doomly

      but he can’t claim gun crime is at a crisis level epidemic.. AND claim that crime is way down during his presidency.. a president doesn’t create trends.. especially one in play for a decade before he even ran….
      It’s like he has his EPA almost destroy US offshore drilling capacity…..
      Then private companies invent fracking.. opening up vast new reserves without ANY government role in it..
      and obama then has the gall to claim that energy production is up under his reign.. “ain’t I the stud” (beaming grin)”…… the bastard has always played this game.. claiming credit that was NEVER his to claim…. that “HE” killed Bin Laden….. no.. SEAL Team Six did…… but that is exactly how the douche rolls…

      • Perso Nasplit

        Actually,he CAN claim both. Law abiding citizens get legal guns and defend themselves. Word gets out, and criminals go elsewhere for easy targets. Overall crime can go down, while the criminals get guns and raise illegally obtained gun crimes(a double or triple crime in itself). The criminals just have gone to an area where they feel safer knowing that no law abiding citizen can defend themself.

        • GomeznSA

          He can ‘claim’ whatever he wants to (and usually does) but there is no direct causal link between those rates and anything that he has done. Period.

      • Kamelhaj

        And look how he repaid the SEAL team Six members by having some of them killed! However, he CAN take credit for releasing FIVE terrorists for one deserter!

    • dankbubba

      The Dems will take credit for anything good and have the gall to assume it as a given without proof or correlation of any kind that they are did something with positive results. Conversely, any specific lefty govt program that goes off the rails in predicted predictable fashion with both direct negative results and a slew of indirect negative consequences is passed off as due to insufficient funding if it is mentioned at all.

      • Kamelhaj

        Like the over one BILLION dollars poured into the Baltimore neighborhood which eventually started the riots a few years later. However, the politicians said if ONLY more money was spent…

    • GomeznSA

      Murders are down nationwide and have been trending down for better than two decades, not just on his ‘watch’. As you pointed out, gun ownership has gone up dramatically at the same time. Nah, must be one of them koinkydinks. Oh and if the dozen or so cities where murders have gone UP are eliminated from the overall numbers, we as a nation are pretty safe. I’ll leave it up to the rest of y’all to figure out who controls those cities.

  • http://truthbeforedishonor.wordpress.com John Hitchcock

    He’s proud of the fact that crime rates have continued to go down during his presidency? There has been nothing in his presidency focused on reducing crime. In fact, a lot more crime has occurred on Pennsylvania Avenue during his presidency than during any previous presidency. Aside from that, his anti-gun position has taken multiple hits from SCOTUS during his presidency, and lots of pro-gun legislation has passed across the nation. Plus a 25 percent plus increase in gun ownership during his presidency. Nothing that he can honestly take credit for.

    Think the venue in “Fairfax, VA” was coincidental? What a disgrace this POTUS is. Anyone who voted for him ought to hang their heads in shame.
    He thinks he is way smarter than that estimated IQ of 100. Too bad for the US citizenry.

    • GomeznSA

      Yep, that is at best a specious argument. But it is one that the left excels at using, because it works very well for them. It always runs along the lines of ‘laws against murder don’t prevent murder, therefore they are useless’. NONSENSE – and it needs to be pointed out every time they try to use it in their smug self-assured way.

      It couldn’t have been when Diane Feinstein (right-wing compared to obama) said that if they could ban guns tomorrow – Mr. & Mrs. America turn them in – we would do it. It also couldn’t have been when obama was touting Australian gun control which was essentially the same as what Feinstein said. So I am not sure.

    What bullshit. Even if all of these laws and actions were enacted immediately, if every gun manufacturer stopped making them and even the police had no guns, it would take 30 years to get rid of every gun. The only way to “create and environment that will be a little bit safer,” he could do that right now by requiring every school that gets federal grants to have at least one armed guard. Simple, but effective legislation would do it and we would have that “little bit” of safety. Stop with the crap Mr. President, and do something.

    • tverle

      You would also have to shut down every gun manufacturer throughout the world. Do people really believe that the people pouring across our southern borders don’t pour across with guns in tow? Or that America is the only place where guns are manufactured so the only available supply?

      They’d never be able to ‘get rid of every gun’. It would be impossible. And, even if they tried, it would take far, far longer than just 30 years.

      Beyond the hoarding and hiding of guns and ammo all across the country in the face of such impending illegally drastic Government actions — anyone with a decently equipped metal shop, some metal stock, and some basic knowledge can manufacture guns of all type and calibers — and now they’re even 3D printing guns these days too.

    Sheriff Babeu’s statement has at least two flaws: One is that in order to know how many shootings will Obama’s executive order prevent we have to the actual data. We will not have them for at least two years. Second: Obama’s executive action amounts to tightening the enforcement of the laws that already exist. So the sheriff is, in effect, telling us, that we need more laws.

    • RepublicanDon

      Wrong on both counts.
      1) By analysing crimes committed in the previous two years you can determine how many would have been prevented by this EO;
      2) The sheriff is calling for existing laws to be enforced, not for more laws.
      Crawl back under your rock you lefty loon.

      • Josef

        Ad 1. Estimates can be made
        Ad 2. It;s a cliche. Obama’s executive actin focuses on enforcing existing laws. The sheriff and his ilk are trying to prevent this.

    Criminal Coddling POTUS — with a phone and a pen being used for Commuting and Pardoning scofflaws and criminals and he’s not afraid to use them for releasing convicted felons from prison in droves — says we need to get criminals off the street.

    He intentionally implores, enables and allows millions of Scofflaw Criminal Illegal Immigrants from foreign countries all over the world to waltz right across our borders like they own the place, and he imports thousands upon thousands of so-called “Refugees” from sworn enemy Middle-Eastern countries that demand the utter destruction of America and Israel and every other Western country and whom would sooner Rape, Pillage, Plunder and Murder America and Americans than say “Thank You” for all the concern, assistance and charity they perpetually receive once in.

    He lied about the kid in Newtown….the kid HAD a drug arrest that was MISSED by the Federal background check that then allowed him to have a gun….when you can’t make your point without lying then maybe you have a moot point. The China comparison is overblown…if someone in the school at New Town had been armed, they could have stopped it sooner and saved lives too…

      But remember Newtown, the kid stole the gun from his mother…so even then the missed background check wouldn’t have stopped a blessed thing.

      • Frustrated Teacher

        actually, I think you are correct…the one I was thinking of was the kid who murdered the black people in church. HE had a drug conviction but still passed a background check….I am not at my usual computer with my backup material…

        • The_Kat ✓vilified

          Laticia is correct. Adam Lanza was diagnosed with mental problems in his early teens but it was “autism spectrum disorder” and apparently not considered dangerous. He used his mother’s guns to kill her and the kids/adults at Sandy Hook. Lanza could have easily used fire or built a bomb to kill that many people or more.

          The FBI dropped the ball on Dylann Roof’s background check when he purchased his gun.

          • Frustrated Teacher

            Thanks for correcting the details…the essence of my post was correct in that background checks aren’t a panacea…if you can’t do good checks they are less than worthless.

    Obama is a lousy tap dancer. Even with “Help” from CNN!

    • Andrew Curlutu

      What, not even Communist News Network could save him from his pratfalls? Interesting.

    Obama got testy when Cooper asked him about people who worry his ultimate goal is confiscation like they did in Australia. To bad Cooper didn’t follow up and tell Obama that people don’t trust him because of his earlier lies, you can keep your doctor…
    Obama and his fellow progressives want your guns period. Allowing them to do anything, as small and insignificant it may seem at the time, is just giving them a foot in the door.

  • Jeff Chrzanowski

    That’s my old sheriff–Pinal County, Arizona (it’s south of Maricopa County). Not as famous as Sheriff Joe (Marciopa County–which includes Phoenix), but good for him.

    President Fuckwit talks and talks and talks and talks.

    And says not a damn thing.

    • Suzyqpie

      Profundity from Pres Obama, “Eat ‘ur peas.”
      MSM, (clapclapclap) Pres Obama encourages nutrition…..

    The thing is Media narrative as directed by liberals is “GUN CONTROL” , when it should be a talk about CRIME CONTROL. Once you change the way we look at gun violence, and frame the question around HOW TO CONTROL THE CRIME, there is a hope to solve this problem. Otherwise we are simply pushing at the wall to get out not looking for a door!

    Watch out for the mental illness bit. That could classify things like depression or head injuries or anything they choose as a serious enough mental illness to deny firearms.

    • whoRUkidn

      Concur – VA has been pulling that nonsense on many Vets seeking help with everything from anxiety to full-blown PTSD.

    • The_Kat ✓vilified

      Exactly! WHO decides what “mental illnesses” fall under the ruling? Do we want the same government that sicced the IRS on Tea Party groups and let veterans die to meet quotas and for administrators to get bonuses to do it?

      Years ago hippies would have been right there with conservatives distrusting the government’s authority. Now those same liberals are nodding their heads in agreement with Obama instead of wondering what would happen when someone who doesn’t agree with their agenda is in charge. The left no longer questions authority unless it is cops trying to uphold the law.

      • TCDave

        “If you don’t agree with me, you will be diagnosed as mentally unstable and therefore disqualified from defending your life and property.” – Said every progressive since 1910.

  • Squirrel! SMOD Conductor

    He’s kind of all over the place and doesn’t make sense.

    • RepublicanDon

      No teleprompter. It was like watching a grown man clubbing a seal.

  • Maxgoof

    Yet another reason why I want to see a debate between Sheriffs and Police Chiefs. Sheriffs seem to understand how to control crime better.

  • KenoshaMarge

    Oh my god he just goes on and on and on and says little or nothing.

  • Hannibal

    Obama can not understand why people do not trust him on this issue when he was the one who said, “they cling to their guns or religion” in a manner to suggest that if he could, he would change that.

    • The DUKE

      You won’t hear him tell the muslims that they cling to their swords and Korans too much.

  • Crusty

    Did he ever answer the sheriff’s questions ? Nope. If he had clear simple answers, he would have just come right out with them instead of driveling on for 4-5 minutes.

  • The_Kat ✓vilified

    I tried listening to him and make some sort of sense of what he said but I couldn’t. There are just too many holes that can be blown in his “argument” from killers using fire and/or bombs to kill more children, which would be more lethal to who makes the decision whether someone is too mentally ill to have a gun and couldn’t they just steal one like the Muslim shooter in Philadelphia? His executive order was just a big dog and pony show to appease his easily appeased supporters.

  • Jim Bahen

    Maybe because Obama is a Constitutional lawyer he is talking about a different oath; the same as President Clinton under oath defined the word “IT” ???

    • Andrew Curlutu

      I think you meant the word IS, in Beelzebubba’s case.

  • John Reese

    Strong mandatory sentences for people who commit crimes with guns, and let people who want to carry do so freely, and gun violence will drop like obama’s approval rating.

    • Andrew Curlutu

      How about simply making any deliberate murder a capitol offense punished with summary execution? It isn’t so much the means to kill that matters, but the WILL to kill. A means can always be found, and the victims will be just as dead.

  • JV

    obama == asshat

    any questions?


    I said it before and I will say it again. The person who is considered potus is a traitor to The USA and as such should be hung, that s what you to traitor’s. I don’t know about all you other people but the more I see these jackass dems running around the more I wish The South Had Won The Civil War!

  • SupplyGuy

    I’d be embarrassed if I had voted for him.
    This is what black racism gets us. A complete incompetent idiot elected only because of the color of his skin and nothing to do with his character.

  • inveniam

    Newtown the kid was unstable, people all knew this–even his mom… people are not disciplining other people’s kids because guns? No, they are afraid because those same kids have never been disciplined by their parents and don’t have any respect for authority. My takeaway from this response is in order to solve each of his examples all guns need to be confiscated… That is where he must take his logic.

  • honestAbesurd

    Not the Newtown hoax again? Give us a break.

  • TLN2

    Obama’s statement about the community not wanting to discipline other’s children over being shot is certainly an overstatement. In my old neighborhood the fear was being sued!
