In the news this Saturday afternoon in the aftermath of a shooting at a Colorado abortion clinic:
Washington (AFP) – US President Barack Obama denounced the country’s epidemic of gun violence on Saturday and renewed a call for tougher controls on military-style weapons after yet another deadly shooting, saying “enough is enough.” – Yahoo! News Read more: http://ow.ly/VddLS
The Colorado shooting is Obama’s opportunity to carry out his agenda to disarm Americans, an agenda that took root back when he was Senator Barack Obama (D-IL).
President Obama hopes to make gun control the top issue of his final year in office, saying Americans aren’t more violent than other people but they “have more deadly weapons to act out their rage.” – The Washington Times, Tuesday, November 17, 2015, Obama says gun control to be top issue of final year
Translation: It’s not that there are bad people; only guns are bad. He seems to be channeling Bill Clinton’s Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders whose infamous idiocy we remember from her statements on crime reduction, as recorded in the following Rush Limbaugh TV video starting at minute 1:48.
Who’s killing whom?
For the record, let’s look at 2015 causes of deaths to see if our president has his priorities straight.
Death Toll from Jan 1, 2015 – Nov 28, 2015
Watch real time death counts via this link: http://ow.ly/VddCm
|Number of Deaths|
|8||Lower Respiratory Disease:||129,843|
|10||Hospital Associated Infection:||89,927|
|20||All Drug Abuse:||22,713|
|22||Prescription Drug Overdose:||13,625|
|23||Murder by gun:||10,440|
|24||Texting while Driving:||5,440|
|30||Shot by Police:||1,003|
|31||Smoking in Bed:||709|
|32||Falling out of Bed:||544|
|33||Killed by Falling Tree:||136|
|34||Struck by Lightning:||74|
|35||Mass Shooting *:||43|
Of the 36 causes of death, “Mass Shootings” are number 35, while “Shot by Police” is number 30. Obama-style conclusion: “Enough is enough. We must disarm police officers.” Well, that’s a senseless argument.
Look at number 6 on the list, Medical Errors, and number 10, Hospital Associated Infection. You are 27 times more at risk of death from being a patient in a hospital than you are of being shot by someone’s gun. Do you hear this president call for our people to avoid doctors or hospitals?
As of the date of this writing, 991,931 Americans have been murdered in and out of the womb by abortionists. Would it not be a common sense policy for Obama to say, “Enough is enough. We must outlaw all abortions.”?
I give these three examples to dismiss Obama’s disarmament scheme as ludicrous.
Personal to Mr. Barack Hussein Obama: What is it about the phrase “shall not be infringed” you do not understand?
Contact your congressional delegation and your state legislature. Tell them to oppose Obama’s unconstitutional anti-Second Amendment scheme to disarm us during his lame-duck last year in office.
