Obama:'Pretty Shameful Day in Washington'

Source: CNN

CNN) President Barack Obama lashed out Wednesday at those in the U.S. Senate who voted against a compromise proposal to expand background checks on firearms sales, saying those who defeated the legislation "decided it wasn't worth it."

He blamed the defeat of the deal on "the gun lobby and its allies," saying those against the legislation "willfully lied" about its provisions.

"All in in all, this was a pretty shameful day in Washington," he said, as families who lost loved ones in the Newtown school shooting stood around him. Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in a mass shooting, also stood by his side.

He said "we can do more" to impose stricter gun laws and warned that "if this Congress refuses to listen to the American people ... the real impact is going to have to come from the voters."

In MY OPINION, the CONGRESS, specifically the SENATE, did the RIGHT THING.

The stupid MEDIA, did NOT inform the public on the bill, kept MOST of it SECRET, only touting that it would "enhance public safety", when they clearly couldn't explain HOW, then the bombings happened in Boston, which didn't involve ANY GUNS.

I didn't hear ONE WORD of enhanced sentences, including the DEATH PENALTY, tougher penalties on straw buyers, gun runners, felons caught with guns, etc.

Know WHY?? Because MOST of those who already violate such laws are BLACK americans, and surely,
obama doesn't want to "disenfranchise" those "votes".

If the background check provisions in the amendment voted down today had been in effect, it would have had zero impact on the shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, and most other mass shootings that provoke the sort of reaction to pass 'gun control' laws.

You do understand that Obama's Army did not consider this an act of terrorism don't you?
You're a real cunning slicker.so what kind of deviant spin you got under your sleeves now? does terrorist mean a dark person that killing white people?one of them?
and what was obama suppose to say before all the information was in,was suppose to let you trap him? who did it committed a crime no matter how you define a crime,he did say that the u.s will bring the full weigh of justice on the perk or perks,also if he's an american and is classifed as a terrorist,he gets no trial or no constitual rights ,if he is classified a crimnal he rights.but to you if he white he's a crimnal,if he's of color he's a terrorist?
what say you.

Hey liberals... I think you once asked everyone else why they couldn't lose gracefully?

The American people spoke today- common sense for once in 5 years. The liberal plan had no hope of ever preventing the type of massacre in MA.

The people are starting to push back against your backward ideas libs.

If "One life can be saved" because the Collectivists lead by King Barry, were stopped from preventing Responsible and Free Americans from exercising their Constitutional Rights under the 2nd Amendment, then the Defeat of the Collectivists 8000 page Bill is worth it!

How many children need to die because their Mom and Dad were prevented from purchasing a useful and effective tool to save their families!
