IMHO, President Obama beclowned himself today when he surrounded himself with children in order to announce 23 executive signing orders. The 23 executive orders are all part of the Left’s most recent gun control push and the package is called : Gun Violence Reduction Executive Actions. Those who have read the 23 signing orders note that none would have stopped the Sandy Hook killings.
And yet, Sandy Hook and “the children” are paraded out for a sympathy grab in typical Leftist bullying fashion.
Governor Rick Perry of Texas is properly disgusted by the Left’s cynical use of children to push policy and he has issued the following press release:
“The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.
“Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.
“There is evil prowling in the world – it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.
“In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”
