Last Sunday, President Barack Obama called for changes to gun laws while speaking at a memorial service honoring the 12 people killed by a gunman at the Washington Navy Yard. Never let a massacre by a crazed killer go to waste.
President Obama said:
"We don't take the basic common sense actions to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people." That is administration code words for gun-grabbing, national firearms registry, restricting the kinds of firearms that a citizen can own, magazine capacities, etc. The rhetoric is always the same!
I agree we need to keep weapons from crazies, including weapons like firearms, knives, baseball bats, pipe bombs, large rocks, etc. But we don't mitigate the situation by restricting the gun ownership by 99.9% of the law-abiding citizens.
Here's something for the President and all his liberal buds to consider, and maybe offer us an explanation. How can this senseless tragedy occur in Washington DC where we already have the toughest gun-control laws in the nation? The military even prohibits personnel from carrying personal weapons on base. So, the President's answer to this tragedy is MORE gun-control laws? We're NOT even enforcing the existing gun-laws that are on the books.

A crazed gunman enters the Navy Yard with a ton of DISARMED people, and kills twelve of them. So what does Obama propose? MORE DISARMED PEOPLE!!
What does the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard have in common with the Aurora, Colorado shooting and the Sandy Hook massacre of school children? All three heinous acts were perpetrated by mentally-ill individuals who needed psychiatric treatment. Have you heard the President tackling this issue which is at the heart of these mass shootings? The silence is deafening!! All I hear is crickets.
