In Colorado, Obama calls for end to "senseless violence"
Reuters ^ | August. 8, 2012

DENVER (Reuters) - President Barack Obama used a campaign stop in Colorado on Wednesday to call for an end to "senseless violence" across the country, appealing to Americans to focus on ways to stop it.

Referring to the shootings at a movie theater in Colorado and at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in recent weeks, as well as last year's shooting of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others in Arizona, Obama stopped short of calling for gun control but said concerted action was needed.

"We've got to put an end to this kind of senseless violence, whether it's in Aurora, whether it's in Oak Creek, whether it's in Tucson, whether it's in cities all across America where too many lives are cut short," he said in Denver.

We should just outlaw senselessness altogether and America will become a land of golden roads and rainbows.

Ever the crafty politician, 0bama didn’t call for an end to senseless violence in Chicago, Illinois; one of the few places in the civilized world where senseless violence actually has a sizable constituency.

I totally agree. Tell Barry and Hillary to stop the ATF selling American guns to inner city, Mexican, and Honduran gangs. That would go a long way.

I know what will work, abolish the 22nd amendment, the 2 amendment and mandate martial law.

As opposed to the “sensible” violence of abortion and euthanasia, both of which he thinks are really cool.

That phrase sounds so foolish to me. I mean, as long as I’m committing sensible violence, Obama is okay with that?

I think it’s sensible to say that Marxists are a threat to the country and deserve a whupping to teach them a lesson. Hey, it’s okay, because it’s not senseless, right?

The CO shooter was an unstable individual. THIS is senseless violence:

Chicago's murder rate up 38% in 2012

Talk to your buddy Rahm about "senseless violence".

The Kenyan must go.

"In Colorado, Obama calls for end to "senseless violence""

Hey O'crappy, tell that to YOUR union thugs, YOUR SIEU supporters, YOUR muslim brotherhood, YOUR race baiters like Al "more pride than brains" Sharpton, and YOUR Ocuppy Wall Street cretins.  99.99% of all violence is perpetrated by YOUR communist and muslim comrades.  Like the frickin violence problem is  evenly distributed among communists, muslims and patriotic Christian Americans alike.  FU POS.

Non stop Saul Alinsky deception from this POS.  Every single thing out of his mouth is a decpetion to further his despicable agenda.

If I'm John Daley I'm saying "Really, BO?".

What side of senseless is you vaporizing US citizens and others with drones in sand countries?

If your senseless better?

There are too many democRats in those places to end senseless violence.

My idea of senseless vilolence is handing a ton of weapons to criminals just like he and holder did with Fast and Furious.

Does this mean President You Didn't Build That is going to shop having the "Justice" Department order FFLs to make straw sales to criminals and facilitate the transfer of illegally purchased firearms to Mexican narcotics cartels?

Didn't think so.

Note that the huge numbers of killings in Chicago didn’t get him out there talking about this. He likes it, it will be a crisis he sure won’t let go to waste.

An armed free citizenry will help end senseless violence.

The death penalty (public hanging preferable) used expeditiously will help.

Throwing illegal thug aliens out of the country will help.

Eliminating God-hating public officials and honoring “In God We Trust” which is emblazoned on are coinage would be the best help.

I’m all for bulldozing down mosques, declaring “islam” illegal, and deporting all who disagree a step in the right direction, also.

Anyone have some ideas?

blessings, bobo

I wonder if anyone has studied the timing of the occurrences of these armed massacres with the timing of anti gun and ammunition laws trying to be passed?

How many of these spree shooters had been under the “supervision” of a “mental health professional” (Loughner, Aurora shooter), on a watch list (heard the temple shooter was; not seen confirmed)?

They better care. To be allowable, violence must be approved by the Emperor of the US.
