President Obama delivered his gun control pitch today, announcing a series of 23 executive orders, while using four children as a backdrop for his announcement.
He called for “sweeping changes” on gun sales, including new bans on “military-style assault weapons” and high-capacity ammo magazines, as well as universal background checks on gun consumers. The Blaze reports on the executive actions Obam signed today:
Those executive actions include strengthening existing background checks by requiring federal agencies make more data available, nominating a new director for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, mandating better reporting of gun crimes and directing the Centers for Disease Control to study gun violence. He also asked doctors and other medical professionals to help by reporting threats of violence from patients with access to firearms.
There was a lot of fluff, in that the executive actions amount to very little. It was more of an advertisement to the general public to support his gun regulations in Congress — because that’s where the real change happens.
Anyhow, using children as a backdrop to push his gun-control agenda is pathetic, and quite frankly, despicable. He says even saving one of these children would make his efforts worth it.
Propaganda. I know it’s been said before, but what if a pro-life president used four children as a backdrop and said, “If we only we could save one, er, I mean, millions, of children from the calamity of Roe v. Wade, my efforts would be warranted.”
Uh huh. All hell would break loose.
