It’s For The Children? Hogwash! | Alan Charles Itzkoff

Leave it to the Democrats and demogogues like Barack Obama to use children as props to promote their lifelong leftist fantasies of taking away guns from law abiding citizens.  In service to their agenda, they have absolutely no shame:

It would have been one thing had the President used those innocent children to propose some serious solutions to incidents like Sandy Hook, but alas it was not to be:

And some make a compelling argument that his Executive orders are an abuse of power:

Be that as it may, this ridiculous “assault” weapons ban that Obama and the Democrats love so much is an utter fraud as the NY Post reveals:

And, while the President is to be applauded for recognizing the role of mental illness in these mass shootings:

His proposals raise disturbing questions about how far the Government can go in abrogating the rights of citizens to not be involuntarily committed and in invading the sanctity of the Doctor/Patient privilege.  Obama gave too little attention to the role of psycho-tropic drugs and violence in the media and video games.  It seems that the President does not really want to have a conversation about what Sandy Hook says about our society:

No… Obama would rather talk about bans on Assault Weapons and high capacity magazines.  However, even his arguments and those of his supporters are specious:

And all their rhetoric about how many rounds does a hunter need to kill a deer shows that they are either ignorant of the Constitution or dismissive of it.  The right to bear arms has nothing to do with hunting and everything to do with preserving our unalienable rights:

But, that shouldn’t come as a shock.  After all, why bother to understand the law when you are above it:

As long as your kids are safe inside Sidwell Friends or some other private school with security and you are protected by your own personal army with guns, why worry about what happens to those who don’t have that luxury.  Guns for them are good.  Guns for thee are not.

For that matter, why let the fact that gun control doesn’t work get in the way of pursuing your agenda?
