I’m running this post from yesterday because I’d like to get more input. Thanks..
I watched most of Obama’s talk just now about the horrible Oregon shootings that happened today.
It was rather puzzling because he talks like there are no gun laws. Am I missing something? Some of the things he said were:
-We have to change the gun laws
-Congress won’t even let his administration gather data on gun violence
-The media hypes terrorism gun problems; the math shows we should be more concerned about guns
-Gun owners ought to question if “that organization” really speaks for them (the NRA, clearly)
-Vote anti-gun…we should vote for people who are anti-gun
-“They” (Republicans, the NRA, etc., apparently?) will say we need less gun control.
Many questions came to my mind.
-Who exactly is it who says we need less gun control?
-What laws need to be changed? Don’t we have background check laws?
CNN and MSNBC news readers were so sad and touched by Obama’s having shown he was ‘visibly shaken’ and ‘speaking extemporaneously’….so angry and sorry for the families. Obama did say that “Each times this happens, I will say all of this again!” (what a threat)
He was smirking, smiling sarcastically, and otherwise turning my stomach.
So, tell me……what’s he want? Who are the Republicans who won’t even allow data gathering?
He mentioned how the media veers toward scaring us about terrorism more than they do about awful attacks like this……another question came to mind when I read a Tweet from that school this afternoon: (One witness says no words were exchanged but there were two classrooms so she may not have heard this):
The name of the dead killer hasn’t been released as of this typing………I find that odd, particularly coupled with the information just above…….”are you Christians?” BAM!
but, don’t let’s talk TERROR in the media………..
