Marcus Luttrell "Applauds" obama's Gun Laws

Marcus Luttrell, famous Navy SEAL, budding hollywood star ,noted Constitutional scholar and now liberal gun banners new best friend has recently  sounded off about obama’s new executive action  gun laws.  When asked about it, he responded to the reporter that “I applaud Obama for trying to do something”

When asked about it by the CNN reporter  he uttered.

“Let me put this out to you, man. I applaud him [Obama] for trying to do something, alright.”

 

Something has to be done. I mean, I think that should be said, too. Everybody takes jabs at him but he’s trying to do something. I get that,” Luttrell argued. “And I’m not 100 percent on this, but didn’t they open up that if you get a psych eval and the doc thinks you’re crazy he can turn you over to the feds?”

“I don’t know if that’s internet lure or that’s part and parcel of this. Because my understanding and I’ve read it,” Smerconish said. “What he’s trying to do is identify who is a hobbyist at gun sales and to make people subject to background checks. That’s the bottom line. It seems pretty modest, frankly.”

“Yeah. I don’t see, why is that a problem? I mean, people get driver’s licenses and — I don’t think that’s an issue. In 2016, I don’t think that that’s a problem,” Luttrell said.

“Marcus, they may yank you off that NRA ad, if they hear you say that,” Smerconish interjected.

“To have people with — with psychological problems have a background check before they can buy a weapon? I don’t think the NRA would pull me off that one,” Luttrell said. “If they do, then I need to be pulled off it because… you can’t give a weapon to someone who has mental issues, right.”

After giving these statements  among the obviously backlash, he tried damage control  that seems more designed to protect his desire for a hollywood career or future run for political office than it does anything else.
“Guess over night a two min interview hit full spin so let me square this away so you will know exactly what I mean… This is gonna be fun
The mistake was made when they put a title on me, I’m not a conservative I’m not a liberal I’m a WAR fighter ( Ret/old/ busted)which means I look for the best way to get the job done even if the plan is shit and all the guys don’t agree.
I support the 2nd amendment and always will. Do I think someone who is mentally unstable should have a back ground check before buying a weapon yes. If someone has a distorted sense of reality and can’t tell what’s right from wrong and they have a criminal background they shouldn’t have a gun. We have terrorist living in our neighborhoods NOW. (That’s another topic) mass shootings, kids killing kids etc. something needs to be done, but it will have to be done together one man can’t fix it. I do not support an executive order, this needs to be a collective decision between the lawmakers of this country. Violence is the act of people,the gun is just the means. If it’s not guns it will always be something else bombs probably it’s happen before, Mr. President I think you know some of those people.
Do I support or agree w/ the pres No but will I back him up, ALWAYS. I’m an American. If you have Senator or a Congressman in front of your name we expect you to act as a Statesmen not someone a year removed from high school. In case you haven’t heard the American People have no faith in your abilities right now .. No faith do you really understand what that means ?!?? Learn to work together to get shit done. Hey If you need to take the negative attention off yourselves and put it on me go ahead I can take that as well. I know I’m not a politician I don’t know what I’m talking about well news flash being a politician is not suppose to be a career .. Most of you have no idea what’s really going on out here and we know that.
Conservative checklist: God first, keep wife happy, from the country, drive a jacked up truck, I do carry a gun, say yes ma’am, hunt,fish, drink some whiskey every now and again chase the wife around the house like a teenager, then church on Sunday. I’m not an extreme conservative, but I live my life w/ conservative values. I am not a liberal but I do like the opera ( joke) but I understand and believe in some of their principals. I’m for what ever keeps this country pushing forward so that my kids can hopefully have what we have, that means making the hard play if you truly care about where this country is going than to make sacrifices on her behalf is necessary. funny how and 18 year old kid will jump on a grenade to save the idea of this country, but our leadership skips out on simple votes. ( think about it) also PTSD is not a green light for murder. I’m sick of hearing that if you served in the military you must have a mental problem. First off there is probably some truth to that we are all a little crazy and that’s ok (another joke) BUT we have a lot of our guys being Bitches! you were a soldier that means you can handle more than the average person never forget that. Having served shows people how strong you are not how weak. This is my opinion, good or bad it’s mine. God Bless”
Indeed Marcus. You are NOT a conservative. Nor are you a real supporter of the 2nd amendment.  In reading this semi coherent mess posted on his official facebook profile the next day,Marcus wants us all to know he will back the president up, ALWAYS .  While applauding the EO  and telling us he will  back obama. But he does make a point of letting us know he would rather congress be involved and make those EO laws, not just one man..   I find it interesting that a man who would have us believe he is a proud gun owner, supports the EO while being oblivious to that fact he will be one of the first people to lose his right due to the new mental health aspects. He has long talked about his problems with PTSD , his issues and even told some dubious stories about himself.
Marcus clearly loves the limelight and is in front of cameras giving his opinion often. I found it odd from the start that he was so happy and eager for Marky Mark to portray him in the Lone Survivor movie.  Marky Mark of course being one of the most rabid anti-gun and Anti-NRA  kook actors in hollywood.   I can assure you I would not let a man with the exact opposite values as mine, play me in a movie about my life.
Marcus uses the old fall back attempt of using the armor  of him being a vet and SEAL to limit any blow back about his most ignorant comments about the RKBA while outing himself for what he really is and what he thinks.  While at the same time tries to deflect blame for his own words to congress in a rambling mess.   It sticks in my craw that a man who has built much of his post military fame and fortune off of the gun culture has said such idiotic things.
Recently Luttrell has made some videos for the NRA.  I have called and written to the NRA and demanded them trashed for ever and the NRA I am part of, to cut all ties with this man.
