Obama Uses Children and Tragedy as Political Props

Now before you just think me insensitive, read on (although you may still think I’m insensitive).

Recently, CBS Morning News had on Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) to speak about their “bipartsan” gun control bill.

Senator Pat Toomey: “the problems that we have are not law-abiding gun owners like Joe and myself. Uh, and we don’t need, in my view, to put restrictions on what law-abiding people can do. What we need to do is try to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerously mentally ill people.”

Toomey went on to say that he and Joe met with families. That’s a problem for me. In my opinion, legislation that will affect the general public should not be born out of anecdotal tragedy. Isn’t the Senate supposed to be the deliberative body, where cooler heads are supposed to prevail?

And to think I was a supporter of Toomey. I thought he would go to Washington and actually govern as a constitutionalist. It sure doesn’t take long to show one’s true colors in that town. And is anyone else sick to death of the word “bipartisan”?

From what I understand from the Toomey/Manchin bill, doctors are to report any signs of mental illness to the feds without the knowledge or consent of the patient. Most of my more liberal friends think I am mentally ill. Does that mean if my doctor happens to be a lib and I a conservative, he can alert the authorities that I may be unstable?

Toomey continued: “But a measure that helps to make it harder for violent criminals and the dangerously mentally ill to get guns, I think that’s just common sense.”

Well, that sounds good and well-intentioned, but it will just be one more of thousands of gun laws that are not being prosecuted now. What’s one more law going to do? The answer: absolutely nothing, but to further erode the Second Amendment rights of the law-abiding citizen. That and politicians can claim they did something.

As usual, we can always count on a REAL conservative, Senator Ted Cruz to set the record straight.

Cruz said on the Lou Dobbs show: “In 2010, over 15,000 felons, fugitives tried illegally to purchase guns and were turned down. Out of those 15,000, the Obama Justice Department prosecuted just 44. Let me repeat those numbers: out of 15,000 felons and fugitives illegally trying to purchase a gun, the Obama Justice Department only prosecuted 44.” That’s less than 0.003%.

It appears to me as if the background checks we currently employ are working just fine. But of course that empirical data won’t tug on the heartstrings of the general public, nor advance the agenda of the left; that agenda being the eventual confiscation of our guns.

Cruz continued: “But I think it is also sad that so many politicians are trying to take advantage of that tragedy, not to pass legislation targeting violent criminals, but instead working to take away the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding, peaceful citizens.”

Rush Limbaugh, on his radio show, made a great point regarding this issue.

He said: “People aren’t being prosecuted. They’re not being utilized, the laws already on the books, because the image must be that we don’t have enough laws to deal with these kinds of tragedies. They are trying to create the impression that we don’t have enough laws to deal with Sandy Hook. None of what’s been proposed would’ve stopped it, by the way, because Sen. Cruz is right: it’s not about that.”

Once again, Rush is right. If criminals were prosecuted under our current laws, the public would realize we don’t need any new ones.

In my opinion, it is intentional. They wait for the inevitable tragedy to occur, and then swoop in like vultures, or more like the ambulance chasing attorneys most of them are, exclaiming: “If we only had a law to prevent this tragedy?”

Remember the Progressive credo: Never let a crisis go to waste! During a crisis, one can accomplish much more than would otherwise be possible.

    We now live in a country that is being lead by Socialist and Communist and people so dummied down they can’t see it. If it’s too late for us so be it, but I feel there are millions of people who are willing to start a new America ones with brains to think with. O’Lord help the Nation to gain the heart of our Founding Fathers Who gave all they had to give us freedom. They gave there land, money, family’s, and in the end their lives. Just to gave a people a free country and we the people have let them down and gave into the money that a people get for free. In fact were bought for a vote a sad day is about to come on America and it will fall on All people. A person without a faith has no need to defend one. Living in a country that is lead by a person that could care less about babies and children could care less about you and I. The time is about upon us to make up our mind’s as to how we will go to the gas chambers, or fight back to live for freedom once again as our Founding Fathers did being willing to give All, or lose All.

    Love the photo op O,reminds me of Goebbels great propaganda campaign in the 30s’ for A-man.Man, you even quoted him, ” we have to do this for the children.” By the way ,loved that inspirational campaign slogan stolen from Mao, ” forward.”
    It astounds me that more Americans haven’t fallen in step with your regurgitated Marxist failure ideology,but liberals or as they should be called, REGRESSIVES, never were good lessons of history,except in revising it to suit their need for regression.

    I can recall another guy with the name of Hussein that used children as political props. It was just months before we invaded Iraq. His name wasn’t Barack, is was Saddam Hussein. Both are cowards.
    Anyone that isn’t man enough to stand alone on his convictions is a coward when they hide behind children.
    Just my 2 cents worth.

    God knows how sorry I am that these families are suffering. My heart hurts for these people because of their loss. However, just the other day on Fox News Dr. Keith Abelo commented on the problems that underly these killings…the ones in Colorado, Arizona, and the school children of Newtown, Conn. The truth is, gun control isn’t a solution to a problem that was caused by the mental state of the perp. This truth was underscored by the recent episode in the college in Houston, when the perp was wielding something like a box cutter, or Xacto knife. He didn’t order any firearms from the internet, buy any weapons from a gun shop, but was able to severely harm over a dozen fellow students with an object that could be purchased just about anywhere, and requires no background check, at all. This is sound evidence that if someone wants to cause real harm, they need a gun, at all. The perps that took down the towers on 7-11 used something similar, and look at the death toll and destruction. We need to get out of left field and take care of the mental health needs of people who feel like causing these problems for whatever their reasons. Gun control is a wild goose chase.

    Obama uses every tragedy and twists it to his advantage. He fails to listen to the families whose opinions differ from his. He’s the kind of person who hides behind women’s skirts!

    If we are looking for common sense legislation or anything else we don’t need to look to the government. that ship has sailed. We have to find a legal but hopefully speedy way to replace our officials with competent people who actually do what they are suppose to do to represent the people who sent them there.
    A national referendum needs to be held to replace the people and the rules they have exempted themselves from.
    A person goes into the military to defend his country. He makes very little money and now is asked to basically give up the benefits that were promised. These are not part time jobs, they don’t get to go home every night or every week end or sometimes at all. Our representatives work a part time job and all they have managed to do is screw up everything they have touched. The military person has to honorably serve 20 years before retirement, the politician only serves 4 to 6 years and they can retire. Something is wrong with this picture. What has the government done???

    As our armed forces are seeing drastic cuts in their operating budgets, POTUS is flying around in one of the Air Force’s largest aircraft for vacations, and dragging children (AKA Lobbiests) to Washington to try to destroy our constitution. This guy needs to go, and in a hurry!!

    Gun control is a calm breath and a steady hand. The purpose of all government is to be responsive tothe needs of the people it governs. When a government ceases being responsive to the needs of those it governs it forfits its right to govern. since thes OATH breakers arefiguring out how to take weapons away from law abiding citizens and can no longer defend theirselves, family or property the all hell will break loose. The criminalsand their like( politicians)the elected representatives of their peoplewill run rampant with no one left who is armed to stop them

    Obama has spent his whole life using, and exploiting, anyone and everyone. As a person, and Organizer, he has faithfully followed Alinsky, and Piven’s Ideology, and has no shame……………..sweethearts.
