He said he was not coming for our guns. He said he was not going to place a high priority on prosecuting state legal marijuana. In otherwords he says, "Trust Me", when I tell you something. I recommend that you don't.
A former medical marijuana dispensary owner on Monday was sentenced to 10 years in prison for operating three facilities in the Inland Empire.
Aaron Sandusky, one of only a handful of defendants to fight U.S. prosecutors, was convicted in October on federal charges of distributing marijuana.
His case is one of four in the United States where federal prosecutors filed charges against individuals associated with medical marijuana dispensaries in states where medical marijuana is legal. [contracostatimes]
“The number of sick patients being locked up by the Obama Administration is unprecedented and deplorable,” said Kris Hermes, spokesperson for Americans for Safe Access, the country’s leading medical marijuana advocacy organization. “Aggressive enforcement is an unacceptable means of addressing medical marijuana as a public health issue,” continued Hermes. “The Obama Administration is lying to the American people when it says it’s not targeting individual patients and these cases are clear evidence of that.” Montana patient cultivator Richard Flor died in August while serving out a 5-year prison sentence.

The Obama Administration has openly announced their intent to bring back the Assault Weapons Ban that was “law” for ten years, but this time Dianne Feinstein and the gun-grabbing liberals aren’t just restricting new weapons & ammo purchases, but seeking legislation to require arms be turned in and private sales be barred.

Vice President Biden will meet with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and a range of other groups this week as President Obama’s gun violence task force shifts into high gear.
The pace and scope of Biden’s work — the task force he is leading is said to be considering significant changes to gun laws and is scheduled to deliver recommendations to Obama by the end of the month — have left groups scrambling over who can attend. [The Hill]
What does all of this mean? It means that the fools on the hill who still trust him on the left (smoke another one) and the ones on the right who only hold a slim minority in one house of the Congress and can't stop fighting among themselves thus becoming a weaker deterrent to his policies, need to hear from us, to stiffen their resolve and to make it very clear: We can tolerate four more years of little progress, but we will no longer tolerate anything the POTUS says.
Think any of them can put aside their own political futures long enough to understand that?
