Obama on mass shootings: ‘We should be ashamed’
Yahoo News ^ | 6/10/2014 | Oliver Knox

Posted on 06/10/2014 11:26:04 PM PDT by South40

By turns angry and anguished, President Barack Obama declared on Tuesday that his “biggest frustration” since taking office has been America’s failure to take even modest steps to curb mass shootings so frequent that they threaten to become routine.

“The country has to do some soul-searching about this,” Obama said gravely in a town-hall question-and-answer session led by Tumblr founder and CEO David Karp in the White House’s State Dining Room.

The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the colonists.

You're giving reprehensible POS's a bad name. This assclown is way worse than that.

I am ashamed that we haven’t figured out what is producing these shooters. I am ashamed that we might know what is producing them, but do nothing about it. I am ashamed that it may be the result of pushing God out of our culture.

A totally lawless POTUS who sets the example for the whole nation should be searching his own damn soul.

Simple solution: Disarm the KKK and their DemonRAT toadies. Every single mass murder and political assassination in the past 150 years has been done by Klansman/DemonRAT: John Wilkes Booth, Leon Czolgosz, Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, James Earl Ray, Jarad Miller and all the rest.

Guns don't murder, DemonRATS and their KKK terrorist wing do.

But I am ashamed of you, Mr. Resident.

Utterly and totally ashamed.

Those mass murders were committed by individuals of the class of people trying to disarm their perceived inferiors with new and unjust laws.

Hey Barry, put some damned armed protection in the schools huh? You and your ilk want to keep schools ‘sitting duck’ zones and then use the tragic results of that to take guns from law abiding citizens.

We all know why Obama and other dems want to take our guns away, but why is such a simple solution so hard for rank and file liberals to understand?

Obama don’t get this weepy over all the blacks killed in Chicago every single week of the year. Year after year after year after year.

Gee, it’s almost like he has a leftist Nazi political agenda.

Nah, can’t be..........

On this issue I have no shame. I was raised right by TWO parents who loved me, disciplined me when I needed it and encouraged me to get an education and find a suitable career. And God was ever present in our household. If you want to blame anyone, blame yourself and your supporters who have created a dysfunctional society devoid of God and parents who care and which is producing children who are insensitive to and thrilled by violence.

The murder rate is actually at an all time low. It started dropping like a stone at about the same time that law abiding Americans started legally carrying concealed semi-automatic handguns and revolvers.

Start looking at your home town if you want something to be ashamed about Mr. resident.

Showing his hypocrisy, Obama said in 2012,”I believe in the Second Amendment.” now he wants to emulate Australia which took away guns from law abiding citizens.

If it weren’t for willpower, I’d be cursing daily whenever this Marxist speaks.

Maybe it’s coming from the WH. I believe that something nefarious is going on and somehow these are being orchestrated.
I don’t know how maybe subliminal messages or brain washing.
Maybe it is another secret program that is being unveiled.

Seems like these are happening more frequently and whenever they do the little man with a chip on his shoulder goes to the microphone and responds with demands for taking guns away.
Fishy at least to me.

Actually he’s not. In reality he’s rather happy since that gives him cover to issue an edict to start dismantling the 2nd amendment.

Thanks much for an interesting chart and it clearly shows how President Ronald Reagan reversed the wanton violence so prevalent during the reign of the Korrupt Karter Kabal. As I recall, the frequent "wilding" incidents of the 1970s that occurred when the DemonRATs were in power came to an abrupt end when Ronaldus Maximus re-established American Exceptionalism.

I saw an interesting documentary on Schizophrenia which showed abnormal structural elements in the brain. These abnormalities are like someone born without hands. People with Schizophrenia have voices telling them horrific messages that they have no way of telling if they are real or imaginary. These people have the potential for dangerous behavior. The science is trying to compensate for the brain’s structural deficiencies through drugs that substitute brain function. The only problem is that no drug will fix what is structurally not there in the brain—just as no drug will substitute for a missing hand. I don’t know enough about it, but I suspect the drug companies may not be selling the appropriate remedy. It may be that stem cell technology is what is needed to grow the abnormally developed parts in the brain.

In the mean time, these abnormal people are a danger to themselves and society and cannot be mainstreamed in society. A caring society with Christian values would treat these individuals with compassion and care for them. Instead we will experience the bad results as we wait for the science to bring real remedies. Maybe science will find the root cause of Schizophrenia and create a preventative measure.

I know what the problem is.

It’s administrators like Obama choosing to turn a blind eye. These psychos are NOT unreported. They are under-investigated. I know first hand.

I have had someone tell me it is the “Con Trails.” When I hear such thinking, I offer to make them a tin foil hat. Anything to give them a false sense of security. When I hear Zer0 and his government statists blame the guns, I wonder what tin foil hat will cure their paranoia. Perhaps a good shot of whiskey and a slap in the face to wake them up to reality.

Instead of this obsession with guns more scientific study in the abnormalities of the brain is needed. It is abnormal mental function that causes people to go off the edge and commit murder. If they did not have guns, knives are just as dangerous.

Yes, I am ashamed we have people who like Obama who create gun free zones and limit citizens’ access to firearms. Without those restrictions, we could eliminate these threats as soon as they try to hurt innocent victims.

Mr. president,
Black on white crime increased once you
entered office.
So has black on black crime.

It’s your watch, it’s your fault, and your crime.

Those of us who believe that self-preservation is
a right that you have no business messing with,
will still do such, kingly decree or not.

We as a nation need NOT soul search or be ashamed. As a nation, we have laws against murder. It’s up to the courts to prosecute the cases, and to incarcerate individuals who harm others.

There is no shame in having good laws, and upholding them. The shame is when those laws are ignored for one’s own personal preference such as what Obama personally and frequently demonstrates.

Those who elected this POS should be ashamed.

Oh, this doofus POTUS just LOVES to shame America.

The people who did the shooting are the ones who should be ashamed ...

Also, the ones who raised these monsters should also be ashamed.

No one else deserves the blame. No one. I’m tired of liberals and their constant sanctimonious BS.

The American Revolution began when the British tried to disarm the colonists.

Yea and my ancestor, Sergeant Samuel Hill was in the fight on the first day, April 19, 1775. He was later joined, at first Saratoga, by his future son-in-law, and also my ancestor. By them Samuel was Captain Hill.

Did 'er once, can do 'er again.
