Here we go again. We have to do something about guns. More gun laws! Tougher gun laws! And once again, the president completely BLEW passed the mental health issue and went straight to guns laws without providing a single detail. Just the generic mantra of “let’s make more laws that we won’t enforce and then wonder why nothing has changed.”
Please remember, the recent shooting on Umpqua Community College in Oregon took place in a gun-free zone where even the security guard could not be armed. Not until police showed up with a gun 20 minutes after it started did the shooting finally stop.
I listened to the president’s 12 minute speech about how bad the congress was because they wouldn’t pass comprehensive gun safety laws. What, exactly, does he have in mind? What does he see as a solution? He didn’t say. Again. He is still leaving it up to congress for him to threaten to veto if he doesn’t get what he wants. So why waste all that time? He should just tell them what he wants.
The president expressed outrage that 9 people were killed at the hands of a gunman. He is a very confused (and confusing) man. Why is he not outraged at the 2600 shot in the gun-free city of Chicago this year? What about the 370 lives lost there? And most of them black lives! Not a word. No outrage. Don’t #BlackLivesMatter to him?
