W.H. Releases Letters from Little Kids Pleading for Gun Control
Weekly Standard ^ | Jan. 16, 2013 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 01/16/2013 8:53:55 AM PST by RochesterNYconservative

The White House today released letters from little kids pleading for gun control, just hours before President Obama is to release a comprehensive proposal to limit guns and ammunition. The letters were released to the Associated Press in what appears to be a coordinated effort to help shape the narrative the day of Obama's announcement.

"Three days after six teachers and 20 students were killed by a rampaging gunman at their elementary school in Newtown, Conn., an 8-year-old from Maryland pulled out a sheet of paper and asked President Barack Obama for 'some changes in the laws with guns,'" the AP reports.

Call me cold, mean, or heartless...

I could give a DAMN what kids (or teenagers) think about any pressing national issue, since they cannot vote until age 18.

Folks this is an opportunity to slam these meatpuppets. In 1990 another Hussein used cute little WEstern Children in a photo op advertising them in effect as human shields. You know the guy Saddam Hussein once president of Iraq, and there is a photo record of it.

Guaranteed the demon-RAT teachers made the kids write them.

Time for parents to have their kids write letters asking for armed protection, like the children of the elite hypocrites have.

talk about hypocrisy! here is a recent quote from a WH spokesperson regarding the recent NRA ad!

"Most Americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. But to go so far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly," White House spokesman Jay Carney said

so it's okay to use our children as pawns in these political fights, just don't use the President's children...

Well we already have “Kindergarten Krugman” thinking that if we mint a bazillion dollar coin all our debt woes will be solved....

Damn these libs are completely childlike or evil or equal measures of both...

Like these kids really sat down and wrote these letters all by themselves? Give me a break.

WBill Jr. thinks that we should have a tank instead of a car. A car, with a pop-up laser gun on the roof would be acceptable, as well.

I think that it would be cool, too, but I'm unlikely to base my family's purchasing policy on the whims of a pre-teen.

If the kids knew what was good for themselves, they wouldn’t need parents. Those brats are just parroting what their teachers and maybe their parents have said to them.

W.H. Releases Letters from Little Kids Pleading for Gun Control

And the amazing fact is that the little darlings wrote these letters with no prompting or assistance at all from their leftist teachers and parents.

In honor of the new “if we can save just one life” standard for rules....

All cars are now illegal…because we can save just one life.

All public transportation is now illegal…because we can save just one life.

All sports are now illegal…because we can save just one life.

All food is now illegal…because we can save just one life.

And, based on a letter I got from an 8 year old…school is now illegal…”cuz it’s yuckey and dumb and I don’t like homework or my stupid teacher”.

OK, let’s not use the President’s children.

Let’s use the children of all the elitist hypocrites in the Congress, Senate, and Hollywood that send their kids to posh private schools protected by armed guards.

Armed security for me and mine,
Gun-free zones for thee and thine.

Hypocritical pigs.

I always seek out a 6 year old that I don't know to advise me when I have a critical decision to make./s

Where did they find 6 year olds that can write. They didn’t come from a Blue State and those from a Red State know better.

Here is how it will go wrong. We are teaching our children it is not okay to defend themselves. We are teaching our children it is not nice to play war games, We are teaching our children to ban guns. However, our enemies in the ME are at war with us and they are raising their children to hate and kill us, they are arming and teaching their children how to use guns as early as eight years old. They indoctrinate their children to prepare to kill themselves with suicide bombs. They practice at warfare every day. These little American obamabots don’t have a snowballs chance in hell.

I wish. These children will all be beat to death by packs of Amish kids long before little Johnny Jihad gets anywhere near them.

I don’t believe 6 yr old’s came up with this on their own and anybody that has a 6 yr old knows I’m right.There was a lot of couching going on.

Abortions are banned. because NOW we can save millions of lives.

From what I have heard (did not watch etc) we did get ‘snockered’ on the kids...the report was ‘skads of kids’ would be surrounding ‘his nibs’ BUT apparently only 4?

Guess they are reading the ‘opposition’???

These, the children who wrote the president about gun violence following last month’s shooting of 20 young students and the six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, CT.....

You can imagine that those letters were cohearsed by their teachers. Certainly these, and all kids are scared with all the media hype being put on guns and the control of same. They hear and can read the news. I would not be surprised to know many of these letters were “suggested” and those suggestions were given to the kids to compose into a letter, the best ones then selected for forwarding to Odumbo. i put NOTHING past those people.
