Posted on 09/22/2013 3:25:53 PM PDT by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama on Sunday memorialized the victims of the Washington Navy Yard shooting by calling for a transformation in the nations gun laws to address an epidemic of gun violence, saying, Theres nothing inevitable about it.
Reprising his role of the nations consoler in chief after yet another mass shooting, Obama said Americans should honor the victims of last Mondays shooting by insisting on a change in gun laws. It ought to obsess us, Obama said.
He said no other advanced nation endures the kind of gun violence seen in the United States, and blamed mass shootings in America on laws that fail to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people.

they appear to be making some masterful plans for GUN VIOLENCE...../s
I forced myself to listen to this speech. Obama held captive family, friends, and co-workers of the victims to make a crass and cynical political speech on gun control.
Obama didn’t honor the dead and their families, he used them-—yet once again...
“Reprising his role of the nations consoler in chief...”
Rather, the user- and manipulator-in chief lied again to push a failing political agenda for media consumption.
Obama was petulant, PO’d, and seemingly depressed. He wasn’t there to comfort or console the bereaved. He was there to punish the uncooperative.
Shut up Obama. We need our guns to protect us against the foreign terrorist invaders you are so fond of.
Guess he never heard of Anders Behring Breivik. I understand, though. It was so long ago....2011 and in that Third World nation of Norway.
Folks....POTUS Obama is not wrapped too tight....he is losing it big time!!! Being delusional, its called!!! Let’s really drive him to the funny farm....Defund Obamacare...NOW!
Sign & Endorse the Lee/Cruz Defund Obamacare Petition...Today!!!
The left won’t have the guts to fully force their entire socialist utopia on us until they are able to control and eliminate, or confiscate, most guns in the hands of patriots.
When they feel they have neutralized “Bitter Clingers” they will be ready to unveil and implement their Final Solution.
Obama is spinning and twisting the truth about every gun related incident in an effort to speed up that process.
I believe he is getting impatient because he wants to accomplish gun control and gun eleimination before his term is up.
He is starting to overreach and that will be his downfall. Obama’s legacy won’t be gun elimination - it will be a revolt against the tyranny of the federal government.
It ought to obsess us, Obama said.
If he were any more gay, he’d burst into flames.
That’s the first thing I thought of....the mass shooting in Norway.
And in Germany, the U.K., Canada, Australia, etc.
Not to mention the horrific mass murder in the shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The victims were not allowed self-defense firearms, but the Muslim terrorists had no problem obtaining weapons.
Just not in the way you want.
He would rather do anything to keep from creating a job.
Millions of Americans and our Special Ops vets want the truth about Benghazi and Extortion 17. Only the political hacks in DC don’t seem to care. Severe shortage of spine and guts amongst the sewer slime, ya think?
All of these people were directly or indirectly defending the Constitution. Taking a crap on the Constitution will honor no one.
I’m still waiting for the media or the GOP to ask did Obama go to bed when he heard of the attacks?
Also bozo mentions this and yet it was his AG which knew of gun running to Mexican drug lords and the was using the violence there to try and take the 2nd amendment away, even bringing the Mexican Pres to the congress to talk about gun violence
The fight to humanely care for the dangerously mentally ill should obsess us.
Obama is one of these mentally ill, He intends to destroy America. He is obsessed with guns because they stand between him and a dictatorship.
Bozo is more obsessed with homosexuality than anything else, even meeting with them in Russia while we pay for that visit and correct if I ma wrong but iosn;t the white house still closed to tours?
Well, it sure obsesses YOU. It's pretty much your only goal, legislatively.
Oh, sure, you have sociological goals, such as the total destruction of America, but your only legislative one is disarming the American people so your folk can pick us clean.
Why is GUN VIOLENCE such a big thing for him? Isn't KNIFE VIOLENCE, BASEBALL-BAT VIOLENCE, or simple MOBS-OF-PEOPLE-BEATING-AN-INDIVIDUAL-VIOLENCE even on his radar?
I know the answer to that. It's because he's obsessed with taking guns so the remainder of his agenda will go more smoothly.
That deserves repeating.
The man has no heart or soul. The only thing he truly possesses or cares about is His Agenda.
