On the anniversary of the Navy Yard shooting…Another call for “common sense” from the POTUS

Statement by the President

One year ago, our dedicated military and civilian personnel at the Washington Navy Yard were targeted in an unspeakable act of violence that took the lives of 12 American patriots. As we remember men and women taken from us so senselessly, we keep close their family and friends, stand with the survivors who continue to heal and pay tribute to the first responders who acted with skill and bravery. At the same time, we continue to improve security at our country’s bases and installations to protect our military and civilian personnel who help keep us safe. One year ago, 12 Americans went to work to protect and strengthen the country they loved. Today, we must do the same – rejecting atrocities like these as the new normal and renewing our call for common-sense reforms that respect our traditions while reducing the gun violence that shatters too many American families every day.

Citing shootings, Obama says must ‘go back at’ gun-control push – Yahoo News

Same $#it, different day…Pardon my French. The President has announced his intention to redouble his gun-control efforts. Never mind that most of this country’s most tragic multiple shootings have a disturbing tendency to happen, more often than not, in jurisdictions with all the restrictions and bans the President, the Brady Campaign, and others demand while simultaneously claiming to respect the 2nd Amendment. The fact is, they’ll never be “happy” until all guns are banned so they can turn their attention to your thoughts, Oh wait, they are already trying to control your thoughts and redefine the First Amendment as a privilege only for those they believe worthy..
