Inflation, Taxes and More Coming Soon
Every Communist must grasp the truth: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.— Chairman Mao Zedong (The Little Red Book, 1964)

I don’t think anyone can truly understand the idea of freedom without understanding why a shrinking group of Americans cherish their 2nd amendment rights so passionately. Obama says that the voices of dead children compel change, by which he means to disarm Americans at a faster pace.
He talks of change, but it is more like “Hope and Chains”. He reeks of the status quo. True change would involve a free market (libertarian) solution to the problem of school shootings and violence – since they aren’t being employed there. You may not agree. But you can’t disagree that they would represent true change.
Certainly there were no such incidents in the left’s mythological portrayals of the wild, wild, west!
You know our view. Freedom is an unknown ideal altogether. But even if we were to concede that a libertarian solution was going backwards, who could dispute the better numbers from back then?
But those arguments – and there have been many good ones made that freedom haters on the left have never even heard – weren’t given a single thought in his haste to get back at the Republicans for all the trouble they keep causing him. Obama is right that society has failed those dead children of whom he speaks. But isn’t this system administered and run by his bureaucratic cohorts? Isn’t that same old centrally planned one-size-fits-all education part of the problem? Isn’t there anything to the idea that gun free zones invite armed crime, or that guns protect people too (thus also lessening the need for state police)? What about the idea that popular pharmaceutical drugs play a role in the violence? Or what about the FACT that gun control simply puts all the guns in the bad guys’ hands. Not interested! He would much rather exploit the opportunity for more political capital from his own side. I’m just calling it like I see it. Obama is a politician and he’s exploiting those dead children for his own political gain.
