Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet: Obama’s gun control policy is Marxist

“[Obama] has just passed a bill that extends to him and his family protection, around the clock and for life, by the Secret Service. He, evidently, feels that he is best qualified to determine his needs, and, of course, he is. As I am best qualified to determine mine. For it is, again, only the Marxists who assert that the government, which is to say the busy, corrupted, and hypocritical fools most elected officials are (have you ever had lunch with one?) should regulate gun ownership based on its assessment of needs.”

“President Obama seems to understand the Constitution as a ‘set of suggestions.’ I cannot endorse his performance in office, but he wins my respect for taking those steps he deems necessary to ensure the safety of his family. Why would he want to prohibit me from doing the same?”

Maybe because he realizes that there are increased threats to him and his family due to his position as compared to yours, and that encouraging the general public to have assault weapons for "personal defense" just increases the risk to him and his family, and to you and yours.

Obama continues to relate the issue back to hunting, saying that he does not want to infringe upon the rights of hunters. He did it again this past Sunday when he mentioned that "at Camp David, we do skeet shooting (shooting at clay targets) all the time".

I would think that Obama should understand that the second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. He did teach (U.S.) constitutional law after all. The second amendment has everything to do with the right to bear arms for the "security of a free state". It has nothing to do with hunting. Obama has become a master at pointing his finger at everything except the exact issue at hand. He does like to confuse the situation.


With a bit of luck, maybe Diane Feinstein will retire (from the Senate) before her bill can gain any steam in Congress.... She is 79, after all.

Hi Ed, just me, I suspect Dems will Douglas her along into another term to keep another Progressive vote/seat. Interesting to speculate who could be the Cory Booker type to primary her....
