WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 16: U.S. President B...
President Barack Obama embraces Grant Fritz and other children who wrote letters to the White House about gun violence after Obama signed a series of executive orders about the administraton's new gun law proposals in the Eisenhower Executive Office building January 16, 2013 in Washington, DC.(Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)
Parents are often asked by their children to solve unsolvable problems. When woken by nightmares, my daughter seeks reassurance that bad dreams won’t return when she closes her eyes again. I offer a fresh pillow, inviting her to think that somehow it will foster only happy visions.
If I cajoled them to, my kids could scratch out some tear-jerking pleas for the President to put an end to nightmares, lost stuffed animals, and illnesses of all kinds. Yet that really shouldn’t be the impetuous for nation-altering legislation. Grown-ups—including politicians—may have a duty to offer children reassurance after a trauma, but we cannot pretend that we have the power to wipe bad things out of existence.

Using children’s pleas to end violence is about the most grotesque rhetorical tool available to politicians. Our natural instincts are to want to shield children from life’s pain. Yet fixating on our desperate desire to protect children from harm distracts from the truly important, adult business of assessing what solutions are actually available.
So it is with the gun debate. As if the massacre of children in Newtown, Connecticut wasn’t emotional enough, the President is now posing with children and publicizing kids’ pleas for the government to take action to prevent gun crimes. The Administration’s messaging strategy is clear: If you care about children, then you’ll do what we say and support new regulations and restrictions. Never mind questions about whether there is any evidence that the new restrictions will actually disarm would-be killers. We have to do something. You are either with us and the children, or you are on the side of mentally-ill, child-murdering maniacs.
This is not an intelligent way to approach public policy.
"Do it for the children" is the oldest, cheapest, most despicable political tactic known to mankind....and to the Boy Messiah.

Like many Americans, I’m no fan of guns. The first time I saw a real gun that wasn’t on a police officer or solider was in 2001 when I went skeet-shooting with my future husband’s grandfather. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed skeet-shooting, as well as how much my shoulder hurt from the shotgun’s kick-back. Years later, I went with my husband and some of his family to a firing range and shot a revolver. That wasn’t fun at all, it was terribly noisy, and I haven’t shot anything since.
I know only enough about guns to know that I know very little at all. I cannot imagine personally being comfortable enough with a gun to use one in self-defense, so guns scare me.
Yet just because I would never personally want to own or use a gun doesn’t mean that I have nothing at stake in the gun rights debate. I’m glad that there are women who know how to use guns and do so in their own defense. I want potential assailants not to assume that all women are helpless until the police arrive.
If keeping guns out of the hands of criminals were as easy as outlawing certain categories of guns or ammunition or more thorough background checks, then it seems that all of the existing gun laws would have been more effective at reducing gun violence and that cities with the strictest gun laws, like Washington DC and Chicago, would be among our safest. They are not.
I have yet to see convincing evidence that more burdensome federal restrictions, like those being proposed by the President, will hit the target and reduce gun violence. I have seen studies suggesting that stricter gun laws disarm law-abiding citizens and make it easier for violent criminals to operate. But I’m open to reviewing new data if the President has some to offer after he’s done tweeting the most recent missive from an eight-year-old.
Let’s have a real conversation about the efficacy of gun laws, and what measures might prevent mass shootings and keep deadly weapons out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. Yet let’s have that conversation as adults, and leave the children out of it.

THAT says it all. The Boy Messiah's kids are safe because of guns being used to protect them. Our kids are not safe because he won't allow us to use guns to protect them. Lying hypocrite progressive, he is.

Rush is so f*cking stupid he doesn't know people owned guns in the 60's. That's why the right whiners can identify with Limbaugh so well.

Lets not forget the 9/11 that happens every single month in America with the same amount of deaths from gunshot. Al Queda could not have planned it any better, yet a President that wants to change the laws to prevent it happening is being stonewalled by the NRA & tea bagger types who would feel more comfortable talking taliban logic than the need to accept change.

You got a point. If we somehow could convince all these crazed shooters to go into the hood and start shooting the gang bangers inteadof the innocent -- problem solved.

The fact that they found the right person who also happens to be half black is pure genius. Not only could that count on the liberal white guilt vote but they suckered all the non liberal black folks to vote against their best interest. This may only work once however depending on the next 4 years. If the economy continues to crash and burn this experiment will go down in history as a monumental failure.
You people are pathetic.

Blacks traditionally vote Democrat. I guess HHH was black??? Must have been as he got over 90% of the vote.

And rally, not voting for the party that nearly killed America under Bush is not voting in one's best interest??? What kind of dumbf*ck votes for someone like Paul Ryan whose yes votes were part of the Bush disaster???

It's the same ole recycled crap you guys post trying to defend the indefensible. The crims with guns 99% of the time shot each other, the rest of the time where innocents are shot in gang bang'er drive by's, having a gun won't prevent any of that. But crims do not walk into shopping malls or schools and start shooting. Those ppl are on suicide missions that want to be noticed taking as many as they can with them. By having lose gun laws allows them an easy way to do it. That is what needs changing, otherwise why stop at assualt weapons why not let anyone have anything. In otherwords let someone drive a tank into walmart with a sub machine gun and go to town. That is the distorted logic of this bs right to bear arms crap. If you want to read it literally, then why have any limits.
