Never let a tragedy go to waste if it fits Obama's anti-gun agenda.

The tragic deaths of our soldiers killed in action, didn't merit as much attention from Obama.(except him tossing a wreath on Memorial Day)

So how many deaths would "merit as much attention from a president".

Especially if they are members of our military?

Four? Twenty children? Two?

And ladyboy, the greasy canukian and the brokeback governor ran right over there to tell them to get over it.

ALL soldier deaths merit Obama's attention, ESPECIALLY the ones who sacrificed their lives in combat.

As Commander in Chief ALL lives are important to be honored, not just the ones that fit his anti-gun agenda.

[.. Human Rights Watch released a report on the drone strike Thursday, citing interviews with eight witnesses and relatives of the dead as well as Yemeni officials. The report said four Hellfire missiles were fired at a wedding procession of 11 vehicles on Dec. 12, 2013, in Radda in southern Yemen, killing at least 12 men and wounding at least 15 others, six of them seriously ..]

Dear boy, most (yes not all) of our mad massacres have guns in common.

Boys, your disrepect for those who died, our servicemen, our country and president is distasteful. Getting your joy (or whatever body part gets joy) by being disrespectful to others is distasteful and unpatriotic.

Btw Our President's tribute to the dead was respectful.

Try it ...

Yes, dear boy, but would it have been more of a massacre with a gun or two or less of a massacre with a mere knife - more deaths, more wounded, etc.

Answer carefully ....

Talk Talk Talk.
Two massacres.
Obama makes an appearance (maybe takes a selfie), but not one word about how he intends to correct the problem.

Another Muslim jihad massacre in Amerika.

Too bad that your corrupt and racist government protects the damned Muslims.

The only good Muslim is one that is burning in hell.

Guns by themselves are harmless. Likewise knives by themselves are harmless.

People kill, hurt, injure and maim. It is the person, not the weapon that is the problem.

Heck, a person can be killed by a rock or an arson fire.

The problem is people and their problems AND medication and its side effects

In part because knives and clubs are not as deadly. Explosives are rather hard to obtain and more difficult to use so guns are the obvious choice.
