Another platitude filled speech on gun control…
It’s unfortunate, although not UNEXPECTED, that the President is using the tragedy in Newtown to advance his agenda with a set of proposals that will do little to prevent these types of atrocities.
Bans and restrictions have done nothing to stem the flow of illegal drugs to junkies, so how are we to believe that a ban on high capacity magazines or assault rifles will keep them out of the hands of homicidal maniacs?
About the only thing the President has accomplished with his gun control rhetoric are bumper crowds at gun shows, nationwide shortages of ammo and a surge in the stock of firearm manufacturers.
A new CNN poll found that 61% of Americans don’t think that new gun laws will lower gun crime. And of all the ideas floating around on how to stop another Newtown, the NRAs idea of armed guards in schools resonates the best with 54% of Americans in agreement.
I believe the only reason the President is out trumpeting gun
control is to distract from the REAL problems this country faces. The USA is running record deficits and is about six weeks away from beginning to default on some of its debts.
Real unemployment continues to skyrocket. Taxes are going up on most all Americans still working. We need leadership Mr. President on problems that hit Americans in their
wallets. Not 23 Executive Orders accompanying a 15 page “Action Plan” to somehow eliminate gun violence.
If you really want to help protect all those children on stage
with you today, Mr. President, why not come up with plans to save the economy, do something about the rising costs of higher education and figure out how to improve K-12 education.
We don’t need any more photo ops, utopian schemes and empty promises out of your administration.
In short, Mr. President, please start using your powers to unite this country and rebuild it, instead of hammering away on issues that make Alex Jones look like a well-reasoned savant.
