Obama Politicizes Another Tragedy
We don't have all the facts, but we do know that once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hand on a gun.
Now is the time for mourning and for healing. But let's be clear. At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn't happen in other places with this kind of frequency.
First, he's wrong (totally) on gun rights and what would actually reduce gun violence. Beyond better background checks and better mental health services, passing additional laws restricting law abiding citizens' rights is both unconstitutional and will be ineffective.
Secondly, no...we're not the only advanced country where this kind of thing happens. We are, however, one of the only nations to have a Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
But worst of all is this statement at this time. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. The Great Divider is determined to stir up as much unrest and discord as possible. It's right out of Saul Alinsky's playbook.
