KEENE: All of these new groups that are formed are funded by Michael Bloomberg. Messina’s operation has now got the tank filled because Bloomberg’s filling it up and letting him do it. The president had turned his campaign operation over to the anti-gun movement as soon as he was elected and was ready for this.
We’ve been predicting of course, and I think I did on your program, that if Barack Obama were re-elected, that he would go after 2nd Amendment rights, and he is now using the tragedy in Connecticut to be the pivot point from which he does that.
Even before that, within 2 hours of his victory speech in Chicago, the State Department notified the UN that they wanted the arms trade treaty, which the president had asked them to delay indefinitely because it would have come to his desk in mid-summer. They said, “We want it on the president’s desk for signing just as soon as possible.” So as soon as the votes were counted and Barack Obama knew that he had another shot he was going to take on the nd Amendment and what Newtown did was give him the excuse to do that.
