"the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president."
- Texas Gov. Rick Perry
This. 1000 times this! This is what we need elected officials to be saying in response to Obama's plans for our rights. "Disgust" is a word that I think needs to be used a ton more in this context. Let's be honest, the views espoused by folks like Obama with regards to the 2nd Amendment are just that. Disgusting. Disgusting and morally repugnant.
I happened to flip on the TV to catch the last few minutes of Obama's SOTU. I wish I hadn't. The man disgusts me. The part where he puts the parents of a little girl who was murdered in Chicago up to sit with his wife and then "tells her story" as a means of pushing for gun control. Despicable! This is Obama's hometown, that already has all the gun control pipedreams he's pushing on the rest of the country. None of it saved that little girl, or anyone else killed in the most violent city in the U.S. Funny how he and the rest of his blood-dancing gun grabbers never mentioned that.
Of course Obama also talked about his job and the job of Congress. He listed off all the things "We were sent here to do" while omitting the one most important duty. "To support and defend the Constitution of the United States." Funny how that works, eh?
