Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

Twenty-six people gunned down in a school including 20 small children. Where the hell is Mullah Obama? Oh yeah, planning for his $4 million vacation in Hawaii that we're paying for. Why isn't he on the ground in Newton, Conn. getting a photo op with the grieving parents? Oh I see now, the children were all WHITE children. Now I get it. Like Benghazigate, I'm sure he's hoping this "bump in the road" will soon be behind us.
You didn't see the President address the American people yesterday on this subject? That brought him and millions of Americans to tears?

People have been killing people since the beginning, whether it was with a stone or stick, it is safe to say it was almost always with a weapon.
A pocketknife is a tool, a bayonet is for stabbing. A car is for transportation, and tank is for battle. A Winchester 70 is for hunting, the AR was invented to kill humans.
I appreciate machines for their design and quality, but they remain JUST machines and I do not worship them. Many 2nd amendment enthusiasts cross that line. Rationally, a firearm is just an assemblage of levers and tubes. To the irrational, it is a thing of power and beauty.

You fell for the "fake tears" scam while he read his "heartfelt" statements from a piece of paper that one of his junior staffers wrote? He couldn't give a rat's ass about those children just like he doesn't give a rat's ass about the children he murders on a daily basis with his drones. He only sees this as a possible way to take away more of our rights. You're a bigger sucker than most Obama supporters.

Which weasel shooter are you guys talking about today? The failed loser in Portland, or the succesful loser in Conneticut? Both video game playing, "generation zero" goth losers carrying out their unspeakable evil in unarmed blue States? Hmmmmph. You guys love to spend other people's money. Mandate two qualifed staff members secretly armed in each school, and the risk is greatly diminished.

Duh...

Ipsos/Reuters Poll: Gun Rights & Regulations

Americans are broadly supportive of restrictions or regulations on gun ownership.

Only 6% say there should be no or very few restrictions on gun ownership.
62% oppose allowing people to bring a firearm into a church, workplace or retail establishment.
91% support background checks for gun purchasers.
69% support limiting the number of guns a person could purchase in a given time frame.
74% support laws limiting the sale of automatic weapons.

However, Americans are also broadly supportive of a number of pro-gun laws including:

Majorities support concealed carry laws and allowing the use of deadly force, both in homes and public places.

Framing this discussion, Americans remain concerned with crime and are concerned about what is to be done about it.

Almost half of Americans think crime rates are going up in their communities.
Significant majorities do not think police can stop all crime from happening
As a consequence, large majorities believe regular people need to step up to prevent crimes (leading to the Trayvon Martin incident).

Obama haters also seem to hate children

We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years. And each time I learn the news I react not as a President, but as anybody else would -- as a parent. And that was especially true today. I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.

The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. Among the fallen were also teachers -- men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.

So our hearts are broken today -- for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost. Our hearts are broken for the parents of the survivors as well, for as blessed as they are to have their children home tonight, they know that their children’s innocence has been torn away from them too early, and there are no words that will ease their pain.

As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it’s an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago -- these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. And we’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.

This evening, Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, which is hug our children a little tighter and we’ll tell them that we love them, and we’ll remind each other how deeply we love one another. But there are families in Connecticut who cannot do that tonight. And they need all of us right now. In the hard days to come, that community needs us to be at our best as Americans. And I will do everything in my power as President to help.

Because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need -- to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories but also in ours.

May God bless the memory of the victims and, in the words of Scripture, heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds.

President Obama

You don't know that. There have been limited comments about this boy,
autistic and personality disorder being two of them. The guns belonged to his mother who it has been reported was a gun collector. He grew up in an affluent community with caring educated parents. It has been reported that he was highly intelligent, honor roll student but a sort of geek and a loner.
There are many kids just like him out there; this is a horrible nightmare that there are no easy answers for. If she didn't have those guns, would he have been able to accomplish this on his own? Maybe yes; maybe no. Nevertheless an entire town and 28 families are destroyed, just before Christmas. What a horror.

how ignorant must you be to think that that sort of statement would help your cause?
Why not? If the leftists allowed two secretly armed & qualifed staff members in the school, we might not be having this conversation today.

LOL! When was the last time you heard of a conservative guerrilla, or a right wing rebel? Here's how it works: People who change things are progressive - even if it takes violence (the founding fathers, for one example), then after some time the new establishment petrifies and starts romanticizing "the good old days" that never existed and blames the left for every bump and aberration. The right will always maintain that the woes and wrongs are none of their doing, and that the successes of new ideas that they absolutely would have opposed are their greatest achievements.
