We notified the Illinois State Police FOID line at 217-782-7980 and spoke with Chris who has informed us that President Obama may or may not have a valid FOID issued from his home state.
The State Police also stated that he does not fall under the freedom of information act when it comes to FOID politicians.
WASHINGTON — Facing questions about President Obama’s experience with firearms, the White House has released a photo of the chief executive in the act of firing one.
Obama, in an interview published by the New Republic, claimed that had used a gun at the Camp David presidential retreat. "We do skeet shooting all the time," the president said. "Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there."
That prompted snickering from some of the president's conservative critics and questions for the president's press secretary. On Monday, Jay Carney was asked whether there was a photo of Obama shooting. “There may be, but I haven’t seen it,” the spokesman said. “When he goes to Camp David, he goes to spend time with his family and friends and relax, not to produce photographs.”
The photo released Friday shows smoke coming from the barrel as Obama holds the gun against his left shoulder. The White House caption accompanying the photo by Pete Souza, the official White House photographer, notes: "President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012."
Obama has made addressing gun violence one of his major priorities in his second term. In the New Republic interview, he explained that he had "profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations." But he also noted that “the reality of guns in urban areas are very different from the reality of guns in rural areas,” where he said children often grow up hunting with their families. “You can see why you’d be pretty protective of that,” he continued. “So it’s trying to bridge those gaps that I think is going to be part of the biggest task over the next several months.”
Dear Congressional Hearing Commision,
Our Declaration of Independence is the document our Founders created when they decided to throw off the chains of England and become a free country. But America today is not free.
Our President sits at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue making a mockery of our country and our Constitution on a daily basis. He is abusing his office. We the people must limit his power.
Barack Obama has spent four years passing the buck of his presidency to George Bush and the Republicans, blaming them for every problem in America. But a couple of weeks ago, Obama took the oath of office for his second term and inherited a country in despair.
This time, there can be no debate. It is Barack Hussein Obama’s fault. Yet while the facts keep getting more dismal for America, Obama turns his attention to socialist programs like nationalized healthcare (which is going to bankrupt us in many ways), illegal immigration (again, something that will bankrupt us for years to come) and attacks on our Bill of Rights.
His reign of destroying the Constitution must end. Many of his actions are unconstitutional and Members of Congress must get serious and consider impeachment charges, immediately.
A U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington has ruled unanimously that Obama’s three appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 were unconstitutional. U.S. Circuit Judge David Sentelle wrote, “Considering the text, history and structure of the Constitution, these appointments were invalid from their inception.”
Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution gives the President authority to appoint senior federal officials if the Senate is in recess. In this case, they were not. Obama simply ignored the law. (Entire article below)
It is a pattern of his. He has violated Habeas Corpus by signing into law the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows the government to detain United States citizens without a trial.
He ordered his Justice Department to no longer enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and has consistently refused to allow States to enforce immigration law. He ignored the WARN Act just before the election. He refused to prosecute New Black Panther Party members who disenfranchised voters in Pennsylvania.
He oversaw the huge Fast and Furious Operation and subsequent cover-up, an illegal operation meant to gain support for gun control that led to the deaths of several Americans.
He also stood idly by while our Libyan ambassador and three other brave Americans were killed in Benghazi. It was an election year. He didn’t want to act. So, he let them die.
Impeachment is not a far-fetched idea. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, yet Obama authorized the use of military force in Libya without Congressional approval, which raised some eyebrows among Republicans. Now, Members of Congress are worried he is going to do the same thing again in Syria. And this time, even Democrats are making noises about impeachment should he do so.
Rep. Trey Radel said, “It is one of those times in our history, we are at this breaking point. “We have completely lost our checks and balances in this country, the Congress needs to hold the president accountable for the decisions that he’s making right now…all options should be on the table.”
Impeachment charges are necessary if we are going to stop this chain of abuses and turn the country around. Obama is not governing by the Constitution, and we get the impression he is not all that interested in the document and the freedoms it provides in the first place.
Take a look at some of the cold, hard facts of his record:
A gallon of gas at his inaugural in 2009 was $1.84; TODAY, IT IS OVER $3.00 AND QUICKLY APPROACHING $4.00
Welfare spending in 2009 was $563 billion; TODAY, IT IS $1.03 TRILLION
The U.S. national debt in 2009 was $10 trillion; TODAY, IT IS $16.4 TRILLION
And, the median household income has decreased in 4 years from $52,195 to $50,054
Yes, this is the change he promised. And it is the change that will destroy America.
What will America look like in January 2017? For another four years, America will be burdened with a President who refuses to uphold the law of the land—unless we stand together as American citizens and demand a lawful leader.
