Obama is going to attempt to use an executive orders to implement what congress
already voted down.
According to our commander in chief, ninety percent of Americans want gun
control.So why would gun votes be a big risk for Dems?Obama wouldn't tell an untruth. Would he?
I think it is a little ridiculous to claim you know why a person voted a certain
way. The experts according to the article (and I don't know why they
needed experts to know this) said "it was a no win situation" for these
Senators. Were these senators representing their states opinion on the matter
or were they buying votes full knowing they were going against the
"obvious" right decision? I suppose buying votes and representing are
often one and the same and I would argue (in this case) the better path. I
don't elect officials to tell me how to best run my life. I elect them to
represent the informed opinions I have made because I am most capable to run my
life. I guess that might be where my opinion differs with our President's.
His statements suggest that he thinks these men should be loyal to their party
and (in this scenario that means him) instead of to their states and he asserts
(by default) that the common people are not informed enough (or have evil
intentions) to make a decision.
If liberals think gun control laws work, why don't the strictest gun
control law in the nation work in Chicago? Guns coming in from other states?
Why don't those other states have the crime problems Chicago has, even with
all those guns? When you answer that question you will understand why gun
control laws are useless, except to punish law abiding citizens.
