One common argument I heard was that this legislation wouldn't prevent all future massacres. And that's true. As I said from the start, no single piece of legislation can stop every act of violence and evil.Who exactly have you heard, Mr. President, since it is so "common", that "this legislation wouldn't prevent all future massacres"? I don't know of anyone anywhere who claims that any single piece of legislation would prevent "all" of anything. That's why laws are accompanied by the penalties that violations of those laws bring.
The most common argument, Mr. President, is that this legislation would not have prevented ANY of the massacres that supposedly necessitated and prompted its passage. You see the difference? We say, Mr. President, this bill would not have prevented any of the mass shootings you say prompted the law, you respond, of course the law won't prevent all mass shootings. Dishonesty comes to you as naturally as breathing, doesn't it, Mr. President?
They say if you want to know what a liberal is guilty of, just look to see what he accuses his opponents of doing:
"the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill...unfortunately, this pattern of spreading untruths about this legislation served a purpose..."It is a shame that the United States of America is lead by a man of such low moral character, that he lies continually. It is a greater shame that, even as skillful a liar as he is, that so many of his followers believe him.
Obama will continue to use those who have suffered tragedies, as pawns in his political gamesmanship. He will continue to demagogue every issue he believes will help him to remake this country into something its founders never imagined. There's a verse in the Bible that Obama ought to consider:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!I wonder if Rev. "G*dd*mn America" Wright ever mentioned that verse in his hearing, in his twenty some odd years of pew warming?
