Joel Gehrke is reporting that Barack Obama wants tighter gun control laws, but he does appreciate that armed Secret Service agents protect his daughters every day on their way to school.
 
"It might come in handy to have these super locks," Obama joked at Master Lock in Wisconsin, noting that he will soon have two teenage daughters.  "For now, I'm just counting on the fact that when they go to school there are men with guns with them."

Cutting-Edge Technology at NRA Convention

 

Benny Johnson is reporting that there was no shortage of awesome firepower at this year’s NRA convention. But don’t take my word for it. There were plenty of industry experts, specialists and cowboys to talk you through the most cutting-edge (and some classic) ways to practice your 2nd Amendment rights.

Why gun sales are rising under Obama

Keith Koffler says the Washington Times this morning has an article discussing “The Obama Factor” on the gun industry, a term used by gun sellers to describe the growth in business since Obama became president.

Employment is way up in the industry, and requests for background checks to purchase a gun are at record highs.

The article says a big part of the reason is that people are concerned President Obama will tighten gun control laws .

This is true, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.

Either the author was cowed by political correctness, or he didn’t bother to talk to real people about why they are buying guns. If he did, he didn’t quote any.

I can tell you there are other reasons why people are buying guns. My evidence is only anecdotal, but as a blogger I hear from a lot of people, and I do understand some of their concerns.

And many of them are as polite or abstract as a concern about the Second Amendment.

People have a general feeling that the whole house of poker cards, built on mounds debt and a shaky domestic and international economy, could collapse at any time. They want a gun, and perhaps more than one of them, in case we revert to the law of nature.

Some are afraid there will be racial violence if Obama isn’t reelected.

And some are fearful Obama will, especially if reelected, move somehow to limit freedoms and even impose some kind of martial law, perhaps in the event of a crisis.

These are the concerns that I hear. I’m very interested in what you think.

Never let a crisis go to waste.  In this case he got a three -fer.
 
Whip up the Black base, whip up the anti-gun libtards, and attack The Castle Doctrine and self-defense in general.
 
If The People become so bold as to resist criminal attacks by using guns, they might just get the idea to use guns to resist attacks by a Criminal Government!
 
They despise and fear The Second Amendment for the very reason our Founders put it there.  The last stand against Tyranny.

I agree with what the blogger stated and only add that the larger city near me (not Chicago but that one too) robberies, home invasions, violence, gang drive bys and drugs are getting worse and worse.
 
Yep, we're buying them too!

House Republicans try to block Obama's rifle rule

Dan Freedman is reporting that House Republicans, accusing President Barack Obama of waging a war on gun owners, plan to cut off funding for an rule requiring firearms dealers in border states to report multiple sales of certain rifles.

The matter has become a flash point on both sides of the national gun control divide, elevating the debate over the Second Amendment in an election year in which the president is struggling to win again in pro-gun swing states such as New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada and Virginia.

Obama has vowed to veto the House's plan to prohibit the government from enforcing the border-state reporting requirement, which is contained in a larger $51 billion spending package. House floor debate on the package began Tuesday amid sharp rhetoric from gun rights backers.

"The Obama administration fundamentally dislikes guns, and more importantly it distrusts gun owners," said Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., author of the de-funding provision. "They also know that a frontal assault on the Second Amendment would be political suicide, so instead they've sought to undermine gun rights more subtly."

Overstepped authority?

At issue is a rule that requires about 8,500 firearms dealers in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California to notify the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives every time they sell two or more high-powered rifles to the same customer within five days. The White House said the mandate, implemented last August, was designed to curb gun sales to agents of Mexican drug cartels.

The rule prompted protests and lawsuits from gun rights advocates who argued the president overstepped his legal authority to regulate firearms transactions.

"We're being treated more or less like criminals," said Alex Hamilton, a San Antonio gunsmith and dealer who specializes in remodeling antique weaponry. "It's very discriminatory."

Gun control advocates such as Dennis Henigan, vice president of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, say the move by House Republicans is "anti-law-enforcement."

ATF officials insist the requirement already has yielded information agents are using to break up Mexican cartel gun-trafficking rings. Since August, ATF has received more than 3,000 reports involving more than 7,300 rifles. Texas gun dealers have submitted 1,900 reports involving over 4,600 rifles - the highest of the four states.

The reports have sparked the opening of more than 120 criminal investigations, ATF officials say. Those in turn have led to 25 prosecutions of more than 100 defendants.

9 traffickers arrested

Officials point to a Texas case in which a gun dealer's multiple-sales reports helped pinpoint an arms trafficker who purchased 28 weapons from a dealer in McAllen. Agents so far have arrested nine individuals in the trafficker's ring.

Since the 1970s, ATF has required all gun dealers nationwide to report multiple sales of handguns. That requirement was written into the landmark 1968 Gun Control Act, enacted following the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.

But gun-rights advocates argue the Obama administration must seek congressional approval if it wants to extend the handgun requirement to rifles - something that's not likely to happen as long as gun-friendly Republicans control the House.

Meanwhile, at our nation's capitol

An   interesting letter in the Canadian Shooter Magazine  this week, which I quote:

"If  you  consider that there has been an average of 160,000  troops  in the Iraq Theater of operations during  the past 22 months, and a total of 2,112 deaths, that  gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000  soldiers.

The  firearm death rate in  Washington , DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same  period. That means you are about 25 per cent more  likely to be shot and killed  in the US  capital,  which has some of the strictest gun control laws in  the U.S., than you are in Iraq  .

Conclusion:  The U.S. should pull out of  Washington  D.C.

I think many of us noticed that years ago, people were practically panicking over Obama coming for their guns. However, the opposite has been observed, as the gun industry is enjoying better sales than there have been for years.

Obama pledges to review gun control

“Gun owners would agree that AK47′s belong in the hands of soldiers and not in the hands of criminals… It should be common sense… So I’m going to continue to work with members of both parties and with religious groups and with civic organizations to arrive at a consensus around violence reduction.”

In Obama's hometown of Chicago there have been 300 killed and 1500 wounded so far in 2012, and Chicago has the most Draconian gun laws in the country.

And somebody ought to explain to Obama that the 2nd Amendment was not written for hunting and sports.  It was written so The People could defend themselves from a tyrannical government.

I think it was Thomas Jefferson who said, "Those that beat their swords into plow-shares will plow for those that do not."

Practical defense weapons may well be the most valuable asset in the next few years. "Chicago" may be coming to a city near you after 3 years of the Obamunist's 'Class Warfare and Racism!' politicizing.

Also in the coming inflation, ammo could be a reliable medium of exchange.

Guns and ammo are a good investment.

Cabela's is reporting record second quarter revenue and net income. Cabela's is a major retailer of firearms and ammunition. Ruger can hardly keep up with record breaking orders. The message is very clear: Americans feel the need to protect themselves and Americans fear more Draconian gun restrictions. The Dems are so stupid. Where the gun controls are tightest, crime is the highest. A well armed society is a polite society!

A further thought. If crazy people can't have guns, they'll use knives. If they can't have knives, they'll use hand grenades, if they can't have grenades, they'll use toxic chemicals etc etc etc. A suitcase bomb of C4 will make the Batman theater episode look like child's play. The only solution is to detect crazy people early but that is almost impossible given HIPAA, ACLU etc.

Shhh, we can't talk about Chicago's crime rate with all of their gun laws.  Besides Rahm has it under control...

Rahm welcomes help from Farrakahn, ignores anti-Semitic remarks


Ignoring Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday welcomed the army of men dispatched to the streets by Farrakhan to stop the violence in Chicago neighborhoods.

Ald. Debra Silverstein (50th), an Orthodox Jew, has said it’s good that Farrakhan is “helping” in the fight against crime, “but it doesn’t eradicate the comments that he’s made about the Jewish community.”

Emanuel offered no such caveat. Although Farrakhan has a history of making anti-Semitic statements, Chicago’s first Jewish mayor has no interest in revisiting that controversy.

He’s more concerned about reducing a 40 percent surge in Chicago homicides that’s become a media obsession and threatens to undermine his efforts to market Chicago to international tourists.

“People of faith have a role to play and community leaders have a role to play in helping to protect our neighborhoods and our citizens. You cannot get there on just one piece of an anti-crime strategy,” the mayor said.

“The police have a role to play. Tearing down abandoned buildings has a role to play. Shutting liquor stores that are a cancer in the community have a role to play. Community leaders have a role to play. Pastors have a role to play. Principals have a role to play. And most importantly, parents have roles to play. They have decided, the Nation of Islam, to help protect the community. And that’s an important ingredient, like all the other aspects of protecting a neighborhood.”

For the last two Mondays, black men in dress suits and bow ties fanned out across violence-plagued Chicago neighborhoods — first Auburn-Gresham, then South Shore — to form a human wall of protection against any sudden outbreak of gunfire.

The army of men, know as the Fruit of Islam, were led by Farrakhan, who ordered the show of force in response to last month’s brutal murder of seven-year-old Heaven Sutton.

Emanuel’s decision to steer clear of Farrakhan’s history of anti-Semitic remarks is a far cry from the 1994 controversy that followed former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s private meeting with Farrkakhan.

During the meeting, Daley prodded Farrakhan to work out his differences with Jewish leaders in talks arranged by the Commission on Human Relations. Daley even hinted that if those conversations did not take place, the Nation of Islam would have trouble winning the city approval needed for its planned development along the 79th Street commercial strip.

Jewish leaders refused to engage in the dialogue. They were so concerned about the mayor’s private meeting with Farrakhan they demanded an audience of their own to clear the air. Daley used that meeting to deny ever suggesting the give-and-take.

“There’s been a rather longstanding pattern where Minister Farrakhan has talked about wanting dialogue. There have even been a couple of instances where members of the Jewish community have met with him,” Michael Kotzin, director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, said at the time.

“Invariably, he’s been unchanged after that. They have felt betrayed by things he said to them. Been there. Don’t want to be there again and be put in that kind of box. All that happens is that he gains from those kinds of meetings a kind of credibility, legitimacy and stature. That’s all that would come of it.”

The Vetting: Obama Has Demagogued Guns, from 2000 to Today

As Barack Obama attacks "AK-47s," while his press secretary promises that Obama respects Second Amendment rights, it is worth recalling Obama's long-running campaign for gun control, dating back more than a decade--a campaign he now seeks to downplay as he heads into a difficult presidential election, because he knows how deeply unpopular it would be. 

In 2000, Obama, then a state senator, pushed anti-gun legislation--hard--after a 84-year-old woman had been gunned down by three gang-bangers who thought she had won the lottery. 

Obama unveiled his anti-gun plan at a rally near the woman's house. "This home invasion is another example of how violence came close to home and we must have congressional action to help reduce gun deaths. Congress has been slow to act on these issues," he said. Rest assured, once elected to federal office, he would act.

The Chicago Defender, a predominately African-American newspaper, featured Obama's proposal in a December 13, 1999 article. Obama, wrote the paper, has "proposed sweeping federal gun control legislation that would increase the penalties for the interstate transportation of firearms, restrict gun purchases to one weapon a month, increase the licensing fee, and ban the sale of firearms at gun shows." (Chinta Strausberg, "Obama unveils federal gun bill," Chicago Defender, December 13, 1999, pg. 3)

Other Obama proposals were even harsher: 

Obama is proposing to make it a felony for a gun owner whose firearm was stolen from his residence which causes harm to another person if that weapon was not securely stored in that home.

He's proposing restricting gun purchases to one weapon a month and banning the sale of firearms at gun shows except for "antique" weapons. Obama is also proposing increasing the licensing fee to obtain a federal firearms license.

He's also seeking a ban on police agencies from reselling their used weapons even if those funds are used to buy more state-of-the-art weapons for their agencies. Obama wants only those over 21 who've passed a basic course to be able to buy or own a firearm.

He's proposing that all federally licensed gun dealers sell firearms in a storefront and not from their homes while banning their business from being within five miles of a school or a park...

Obama is requiring that all people working at a gun dealer undergo a criminal background check. He's also asking that gun manufacturers be required to develop safety measures that permit only the original owner of the firearm to operate the weapon purchased.

Additionally, he wants an increase of the funds for schools to teach anger management skills for youth between the ages of 5-13. Obama is also seeking to increase the federal taxes by 500 percent on the sale of firearm, ammunition...

Obama's demand for "anger management" sounds eerily similar to an intervention prescribed by Obama's now Attorney General, Eric Holder. In 1995, Holder, then U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, called for a public campaign to "brainwash" young people into hating guns.

Of course, we now know that that desire to change the public discourse around guns was also a possible motive behind Holder's gun-walking scheme in the operation known as Fast & Furious. And while Obama continues to claim executive privilege over the documents that contributed to the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, he continues to demand Romney's utterly irrelevant tax documents from over a decade ago. 

Draconian anti-gun laws, meanwhile, certainly haven't made Obama's Chicago safer. Chicago, now run by Rahm Emanuel, Obama's former chief of staff, has had over 250 murders this year, up some 38%. 

White House spokesman Jay Carney says: "The president believes that we need to take common-sense measure that protect Second Amendment rights of Americans, while ensuring that those who should not have guns under existing law do not get them." It's clear, though, from his Chicago days, that Obama's view of "common sense" doesn't mesh with what is common or sensible. And while Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) says the time is not ideal to limit gun rights, she never said that time was "never." "Common-sense" reform easily becomes the incremental means by which he curtails rights.

Under the rubric of "common-sense," Obama routinely opposed laws that would have made Chicagoans safer while rewarding criminals. Obama opposed a law, for example, that would have added aggravated battery with a firearm--a common charge in gang drivebys shootings--to a list of crimes that automatically sends teens 15 and older to criminal court.  Obama was quoted, along with Bernardine Dohrn, in opposition: “We can’t just write off these kids at 14, 15, and 16,” Obama said, not realizing that gang members might begin recruiting children to do the shooting. (“Legislators divided on ‘get tough’ reforms,” Chicago Sun-Times, Sep. 28, 1997). 

Given all of the recent discussion of gun control, it’s worth recalling that the Aurora, Colorado theatre in which last Friday's terrible crime took place was a “gun-free zone.”  In 2001, Obama wanted to make all of Illinois a “gun-free zone,” by banning concealed carry in effect freeing gun-toting criminals from the threat of being shot by an armed citizen and increasing the likelihood that they would act with impunity.

Obama even helped defeat a proposal that came one vote shy of allowing Illinois citizens to carry a concealed firearm if a judge had granted them an order of protection. Obama fought to defeat that bill, citing--implausibly--domestic disputes as a reason. He argued that a bill that allowed those who have judge-issued restraining orders would use domestic disputes as “a Trojan Horse for the notion that concealed and carry[sic] is appropriate in our state.” In his campaign for U.S. Senate in 2004, he suggested a federal ban on concealed carry laws.

Similarly, State Sen. Obama backed a proposal that would have forced all sellers of firearms--even someone selling one gun from a private collection--to carry a state license. Such sellers would also have to report to state officials. He also backed allowing expensive lawsuits against gun manufactures when gun violence resulted in injury or death—a subtle means to increase the price of guns and keep them away from those who want them. 

Contrary to what Carney says, Obama supported every possible restriction on the Second Amendment, defending such restrictions as “not only constitutional, but eminently reasonable.” (Sean Noble, “Senate Democrats’ Proposals Take Aim At Weapons Control,”  State Journal-Register, Feb. 15, 2001) 

Obama missed only one major anti-gun vote—not because he opposed the restrictions, but because he was vacationing in Hawaii at the end of 1999.

For a guy that mainly voted "present" while in IL - this says a lot!

From item #12 above:

“Gun owners would agree that AK47′s belong in the hands of soldiers and not in the hands of criminals… It should be common sense… So I’m going to continue to work with members of both parties and with religious groups and with civic organizations to arrive at a consensus around violence reduction.”

This proves again that The Usurper has no knowledge or understanding of what he is talking about, and neither do his speech-writers.

This was in response to the over-educated progressive idiot's attack on the Aurora, Colorado movie theater. The Obamunist's attack against guns is centered on the AK-47.  But there are few problems here:

1. The whacko terrorist shooter used an AR-15, not an AK. Thank God! Because it jammed. An AK variant wouldn't and the carnage would have been much worse.

2. There are no AK-47s being sold in the US except to military and police orgs. They are Class III weapons and can not be imported except for sale to the above. The rifle sold are semi-auto copies.

3. An assault rifle is defined by the Dept of Defense as a rifle shooting an intermediate-powered cartridge, having a full-auto fire capability, and a magazine capacity of 30 rounds or more. The anti-gun Liberals and the Lap-Dog Media insist that appearance is more important than mechanical capability or the TRUTH!.

I am an admirer of the 7.62x39mm round, the SKS, and Sgt. Kalashnikov's rattle-traps, including the semi-auto copies because they work. Even in the hands of relatively inexperienced people. That is why they are popular with many people as recreational guns and defense weapons. The M-16/AR-15s are very sensitive, close tolerance weapons and if not properly maintained will jam, often. This fool exacerbated the problem by using a very high capacity after-market 100rd magazine. Looks good in a video game but not so good in the field unless well fitted and broken in.

Damn poodle-shooters.

But we should all be glad he picked one and was too arrogant to really learn how to use it.

Note: The real damage seems to have been done with his Remington 870 12 ga. pump shotgun. The most popular gun in America.

Obama:  "People shouldn't be allowed to own guns"

Drew Zahn is reporting that a fellow professor with Barack Obama at the University of Chicago in the 1990s told radio host Laura Ingraham last week that the man who would become president once insisted, “People shouldn’t be allowed to own guns.”

That professor was John Lott, already known then as a leading gun-rights advocate and now author of several books, including “More Guns, Less Crime” and “Freedomnomics: Why the Free Market Works and Other Half-Baked Theories Don’t.”

“I knew Obama at the University of Chicago,” Lott told Ingraham. “We both taught there at the same time for about four years, and I talked to him about guns. I know what his views are on that.

“The first time I ever met him, I went, introduced myself, he said, ‘Oh, you’re the gun guy,’” Lott recalled. “He said to me, ‘I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.’”

Ingraham stopped the interview to clarify that Obama wasn’t talking about criminals owning guns but everyday citizens.

“No, it was very clear,” Lott said. “He said, ‘I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”

Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992-2004, and Lott was a visiting professor and fellow at the university from 1994-1999.

Despite Obama’s job description, Lott claims Obama stated views in bold violation of the Constitution he taught about – specifically the 2nd Amendment, which states, in part, “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

“This just gives people a good idea of what he really wants to have, what his ideal country would have in terms of regulations,” Lott said.

“I think the real damage Obama is going to do is in terms of Supreme Court appointments on the gun issue,” he continued. “We have two major decisions in the Heller case striking down … gun-ownership rules for D.C. and also Chicago, but those were 5-4 decisions. If you have either Kennedy or Scalia retire – who are going to be in their 80s soon – you’re going to end up with a situation where they could easily reverse it. The two people Obama put on the court, [Sonia] Sotomayor and [Elena] Kagan, don’t believe that there’s an individual right to self-defense.”

Audio of Ingraham’s interview with Lott was captured by Breitbart.com and can be heard on the Breitbart website.

Obama hates guns

Mychal Massie says it took Obama six days to renew his calls for a ban on guns in the aftermath of the movie theater murders in Aurora, Colo. Following is an excerpt from his comments to the National Urban League:
 
"I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms. I think we recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation, that hunting and shooting are part of a national heritage, but I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals; that they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities."
 
Obama is as driven to undermine our Second Amendment right to own and bear arms as Satan is to have sinners in hell. And let there be no doubt about it -- that is the sensus plenior of Obama’s insidious bromide.
 
In saying that "hunting and shooting are part of a national heritage," he was applying a familiar hypocorism that we are all comfortable with, and then contrasting it in such a way that the unthinking will agree. Who wouldn’t agree that AK-47s do not belong in the hands of criminals?

If Obama feels so strong that guns belong in the hands of soldiers not criminals, then why weren’t the thousands of assault rifles that were sold to the most violent and dangerous drug cartels in this hemisphere sold to the Mexican military instead?
 
Obama is the most mendacious and pernicious, narcissistic megalomaniac ever to occupy elected office. He makes Hugo Chavez appear sane and coherent. And as is always the case -- Obama is hanged by the words and comments he wasn’t able to have sealed from public view.
 
If he recognizes "the traditions of gun ownership that [were] passed on from generation to generation," why did he insult small-town Pennsylvanians April 6, 2008, when he told a fundraiser: "You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest … people get bitter and cling to guns or religion." Of course, deeper analyzation of his comment suggests it was (in his mind) a clever and coded way of disparaging whites.
 
Katie Pavlich wrote: "In law school, [Obama] was mentored by liberal legal scholar Laurence H. Tribe, who … was a fervent opponent of gun rights. … Tribe recalled, [Obama] was the best student [he] ever had." ("Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal And Its Shameless Cover-Up"; page 16)
 
Pavlich wrote that in 1994, Obama was on "the board of the Joyce Foundation, a liberal-leaning organization so active in advocating restrictions on gun ownership that it is known as the anti-NRA."

She writes: "In 1999 Obama was quoted by the Chicago Defender newspaper at an anti-gun rally proposing a 500 percent increase in federal taxes ‘on the sale of firearm ammunition.’ In 2000, as an Illinois state senator, Obama co-sponsored … [restrictive and punitive legislation limiting the firearms purchases by law-abiding citizens].
 
And if, as he told the National Urban League, he "[recognizes the traditions of gun ownership passed on from generation to generation [and] that hunting and shooting are part of our national heritage" -- then why did he "in 2003 … vote for a bill banning the private ownership of hunting shotguns, target rifles, and black powder rifles in Illinois"?
 
His comment that he believes "a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not … criminals … [and] not on the streets of our cities" is pure bêtise. And it was intended to set up another straw dog. At face value no responsible person would disagree with what he said.
 
But there is no way to remove or restrict firearms in America except by taking them from the hands of the law-abiding and enthusiasts. Some would argue that the very fact Obama holds the office he does proves there is no way to legislate crime out of existence, but I digress. Criminals will always have weapons, and they will always commit criminal acts: that’s why they’re called criminals. Nor can the unstable be prevented from saying and/or doing unstable things; once again, I use Obama as the best example of making comments most typically viewed as those of a person not fully in control of his mental faculties.
 
The simple truth is that Obama hates guns and will do whatever it takes to undermine the Second Amendment and deny us our constitutional rights pursuant to same.
 
There was no way to prevent the massacre in Aurora, and to use that tragedy as a bugbear to further a diabolical agenda is morally opprobrious and beneath contempt, but obviously not out of character for Obama.
 
My friends and I, like hundreds of thousands of other shooting enthusiasts, enjoy shooting guns of every description on ranges around the nation. We are enthusiasts and collectors; we do not need Obama and gun-haters dictating the terms under which we enjoy our sport.
 
My advice to Obama would be to focus on the economy and to focus on having Eric Holder obey congressional subpoenas -- and leave how we spend our free time to us.
 
There are more than 22,000 gun laws -- one more or 10 more isn’t going to do anything other than punish legitimate gun enthusiasts.

Second Amendment at risk in second term

You'll need to turn the volume up a bit to hear Cam Edwards talk to Emily Miller from The Washington Times about this article -- NRA News - July 31, 2012

From the archive:  Barack Obama vs the 2nd Amendment

Gun toting grandma puts FIVE armed robbers on the run

Why Obama doesn't want you to own a gun.  It interferes with his neighborhood redistribution program.

I thought I was watching a 5 Stooges film as "Holder's peeps" hit the streets.

Califailure Media anti-gun whiny-babies having to report armed citizens can fight back against this quasi-Marxist, Obamunist encouraged, class warfare, increase in crime.

Unfortunately, the lady didn't have a shotgun. Perfect target when all 5 were fighting each other to get the door open. She could have put them all down.
