They are being used but he needs to wise up.

The Newton families who cooperated with Obama to politicize the deaths of their children are completely wrong, but to tell them to go to hell lowers one to the level at which they are operating. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

...this individual claiming that the loss of his liberties supercedes the loss suffered by the parents has reserved for himself a very long, very arduous purgation before he can ever see the joys of heaven...

I can’t disagree with that statement. My heart aches for their loss but I bear no guilt and I won’t sacrifice my rights to make them feel better.

He said...

“I have something I want to say to the victims of Newtown or any other shooting, I don’t care if it’s here in Minneapolis or anyplace else: Just because a bad thing happened to you doesn’t mean that you get to put a king in charge of my life. I’m sorry that you suffered a tragedy, but you know what? Deal with it, and don’t force me to lose my liberty, which is a greater tragedy than your loss."

I have to agree with him.

I’m sure his sentiment is shared by many. Maybe they are being used, and maybe they are aligned and complicit.

I have no problem telling Obama, Cuomo, Malloy, and all the other gun grabbers “Go to hell.”

Not a smart move, Mr Davis. They’re all lib-dem White Hut/Crib tools now, but there was a much better way to say it, and you FAILed.

So he never actually said “Go to Hell!” That's just media exaggeration and embellishment?

Color me surprised.

Not.

If that is his statement then I agree with him 100%.

Nothing like the Media embellishing his statement and lying about his true words.The Media is an Obama tool.

He’s got a point, although I would have put it a bit differently. I would have simply told the parents that no matter how many guns get taken away, their kids will not come back and there’s no sense wrecking the country over their loss.

...the entire point of the article hinges on the parents of the slain, not political warriors...the issue is whether inflammatory political rhetoric should be aimed in such a diffident manner at those who don’t deal in politics, but who are at the most vulnerable point in their lives...

...I think he should take the offer to go to Newtown and repeat what he said...I’d have more respect for him...

Someone needs to inform these families that if the wacko couldn’t get guns he could have most likely killed by fire or explosives which BTW has happened quite a few times before, the worst being the Bath school bombing in 1927 which killed 38 kids. The problem is not guns, the problem is wackos and liberals who allow them to run amok. I can’t even count the amount of times I read stories of kids assaulting teachers yet if the teacher touches one little hair on a kid, the school gets sued and the teacher fired. This psychotic little pr*ck who killed all these kids in Newton, I don’t even have to guess they had problems with this kid before which of course the communist propaganda machine posing as our media completely ignores, yet absolutely nothing was done most likely because of again liberals.

While the “go to hell” remark was clearly inappropriate, the rest of his remarks were absolutely 100% right on.

...I’m sure there’s nothing impeding you from doing just that...

"“I’m sick and tired of seeing these victims trotted out, given rides on Air Force One, hauled into the Senate well, and everyone is … terrified of these victims. I would stand in front of them and tell them, ‘Go to hell.’ ”

He said in essence that the families of the children are being used to try to politically intimidate the opposition. And, if he were in a position wherein the they were being used to try to intimidate him, he would tell them to "Go to hell." Bottom line? He did NOT tell them to "Go to hell."
