All glocks down, word to Heather B.
“Every single day, America is robbed of more futures. It has awful consequences for our society. And as a society, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to put a stop to it,” he wrote.
Obama said he believed the U.S. Constitution’s second amendment guaranteed a citizen’s right to bear arms.
Sensitive to accusations that he favors broad limitations on gun use, Obama emphasized that his administration had expanded gun owners’ rights, allowing them to carry guns in national parks and wildlife refuges, for example.
For those dumb-a**
Republicans people who miss the whole point and argue that Obama is infringing on their 2nd amendment rights…
Obama, a Democrat, said it was time to move beyond that divide. “I believe that if common sense prevails, we can get beyond wedge issues and stale political debates to find a sensible, intelligent way to make the United States of America a safer, stronger place,” he wrote.
“I’m willing to bet that responsible, law-abiding gun owners agree that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few — dangerous criminals and fugitives, for example — from getting their hands on a gun.”
Obama’s comments could be aimed at shaping an inevitable discussion on guns in the 2012 presidential campaign.
Potential Republican candidates are vying for their party’s presidential nomination and the issue of guns — as in previous years — is likely to feature among the list of topics debated in that hard-fought contest.
Seriously though, we have to take a look at how guns are distributed and sold in this country because the shootings and violence have gotten all the way out of pocket!
Do you think we need to tighten gun control in the U.S.???
