May we remember Newtown as the tragic result of an insane young man given access
to weapons by his equally insane mother. What was she thinking?The more
we know about their living situation the less we understand.
Shame on us if we forget "Fast and Furious" and Lybia!
Re: 3grandslamsMake that 4 and 5 grandslams with that point.
Barack the demagogue! Always predicable to use fear and misinformation against
the low information folks in the US to campaign for his causes. Depend on Barack
to use kids as props or whatever is necessary to force his gun-less America
agenda. The man is despicable and dishonest. Barack wants registration - he
wants your name on a list and he won't stop until he gets it. A
demagogue is a political leader in a democracy who appeals to the emotions,
prejudices, and ignorance of the less-educated people of a population in order
to gain power. Any questions?
"Remember the Maine, to hell with Spain!"
Sorry BO but America has and will forget. But your critcs want to thank you.
All the hyperbole and BS spewed by both sides sold a few thousand more guns and
raised another couple million by the NRA gun nuts. You'll be able to try
again in a few months as I'm sure the copy cat nuts will be out in force
with the weather warming up.
Shame on you for politicizing a horrible massacre.
I am not a gun fan – but: Shame on Obama for blaming gun owners for
the insanity of a mentally disturbed man who killed children in an
ever-so-fashionable but blatantly ineffective gun free zoneShame on Obama
for blaming gun owners and completely ignoring Hollywood violence and its
influence on the coarsening of America - because they finance ObamaShame
on Obama for using children as a political shield for his own incompetence
Why doesn't barack outlaw terrorism while he is at it? And outlaw illegal
immigration too. He really should make those illegal, because then those
wouldnt be a problem and no one would do them.
'Shame on us' if Newtown is forgotten’---Absolutely Newtown should not be forgotten. This is why I and others like me
continue to point out that we need to attack the problem of (gun) violence where
it exists. Not attack it where it doesn't exist just so we can say we have
done 'something'. If we don't attack this problem intelligently,
no progress will be made.Let us begin by reminding ourselves that
law abiding people are not the problem. Criminals and people with mental health
problems .. are the problem. Therefore banning guns that look like
'assault' weapons such as having pistol grips as was done in the last
assault weapons ban will not solve the problem.For the sake of the
memory of the children .. of Newtown .. and for the sake of all of us, let us
attack this problem intelligently. For the sake of the children who are saved
from criminal action by guns every year let us remember and take wisdom from
this now famous quote .."Adam Lanza commits a crime, and
I'm here to grovel and plead for my rights?"Robert Steed of
Vernon Conn spoken to Connecticut lawmakers after the Newtown shooting.
As a matter of fact, Mr. patriot, I do have a question. Assuming we are able to
agree on just where the MOST "low information voters" actually live,
then why do they tend to vote pretty heavily for Republican presidential
candidates? And what could/should we do to make them "smarter"?
Releasing the crime scene and autopsy photographs would ensure that Americans
never forget Newtown.
Thank you, Mr. President, for staying focused and not getting sucked into the
vitriolic vortex of gun anger. What we've done up to this point, which is
nothing, hasn't worked.
"Assuming we are able to agree on just where the MOST "low information
voters" actually live, then why do they tend to vote pretty heavily for
Republican presidential candidates?"Classic left-wing non

re:Mark BI get it Mark - you are a liberal and you don't like
being called a low information voter. I would say you are an exception to the
'low information' masses that voted for Barack either because he was
the right skin color, he gave em hand outs or he was a cool cat. A very sad
indictment to a high percentage of America. I labeled Barack as a demagogue
because that is his predictable pattern for the past 4+ years. For every issue
the man uses fear coupled with misinformation to rev up his adoring supporters
instead of setting down and governing like an actual president should. It is
something that turns the stomachs of most Americans. This gun debate is serious
Mark - it is not something that should be politicized like it is by Barack
because the majority of Americans cherish their right to protect themselves and
their families and when a president and his gun-banning supporters attempt to
mis-represent the facts in order to achieve a long - desired socialist dream of
a gun-less America it divides and polarizes America which seems to always be the
goal of Barack Obama.
So many of the comments here today are simply disgusting.
old man,you are correct, but we cannot prevent Mark B, Hutterite, or old
man from commenting.You're OK with BO using fear and
misinformation?You're OK with BO politicizing a massacre?After all, never let a crisis go to waste!
Hypocrisy at its finest."Obama uses fear! Obama is a Muslim!
Obama wants our names on a list!" - Says the right winger that listens to
his very Republican biased radio show that constantly uses fear to generate
hatred toward the other party. I guess I am a low hatred
information voter, but I will stick with facts than any fear tactic by either
"I will stick with facts than any fear tactic by either party." Says the person who claims that anyone with a different opinion listens to
"his very Republican biased radio show that constantly uses fear to generate
hatred toward the other party" (but of course not a very left wing hate
based MSNBC)Hypocrisy at its finest indeed (and relatvely high
