President Barack Obama on Saturday issued a statement about the shooting that took place at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Friday.
Three people, including a policeman, were killed in the incident.
“If we truly care about this--if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience--then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them,” said Obama. “Period. Enough is enough.”
The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence -- people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time.
And yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.
We don’t yet know what this particular gunman’s so-called motive was for shooting twelve people, or for terrorizing an entire community, when he opened fire with an assault weapon and took hostages at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. What we do know is that he killed a cop in the line of duty, along with two of the citizens that police officer was trying to protect. We know that law enforcement saved lives, as so many of them do every day, all across America. And we know that more Americans and their families had fear forced upon them.
Obama needs to learn and understand what prayer truly is. NO ONE prays with a clean conscience, we pray for forgiveness of our sins, which gives us a clean conscience. I hope he is not saying he has a clean conscience, he better be careful with that, his track record puts the lie to that. Only way to have a clean conscience is get on your knees and confess your sins in prayer to the one and only Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth and ALL that is in them. And there is no way to lie to God or produce a cover up, HE already knows your sins before you get the thought to pray.
There is NO WAY, A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR, can ever get a prayer answered anyway.
It appears to me a man of conscience wanted to shut down a killing factory on one of America's streets...Semper Fi Nam 66-67
Good point ! If the victims of the shooting worked at the abortion clinic ? Why can't we just say that they were post term abortions ?
Oh pullleeeeaaaassse...then stop arming them king o.....your criminals will always have the guns...thot that was what you wanted..."a civilian army better armed and trained the our military"..from his Colorado speech 2007.
It is only a WAR, when Obama's allies are harmed, does he get energized. He is certainly President ONLY of a segment of the American public.
Why is it that the Real God does not strike this idiot down. I still live in hope. Every move he makes is predetermined to undermine the Constitution of the US and the Bill of Rights. All the information he releases is skewed to feed the uninformed misinformation and bring about his program to disarm the American Citizen. He speaks with a forked toungue. Stay allert
The Real God did not create this situation ! He may forgive us but we still have to suffer the consequences of our mistakes
A typical pre-tyranical leader. Destroy religion, the family unit, create divisiveness in the society and and disarm the people.
Obama needs a real history lesson.
He really thinks he will survive such an outcome ?
Only an insane person would try to repeat the proven failures of history.
The only weapons that need to be removed from the streets are those owned by thugs in every DEMOCRAT controlled city in our Country. That is the dirty secret this administration will NEVER admit to.
Obama will disarm every American before he admits to that one simple fact. Take the weapons from the inner city thugs, and the gun deaths will drop by tens of thousands a year.
Better yet, ENFORCE the NYC "stop and frisk" policy in every big democrat controlled city. But no progressive will ever admit that statistically proven policy worked. Now that the NYC commy in charge eliminated that policy, the crime rate their has skyrocketed. This proves progressives are NOT interested in finding a workable solution.
Anything Barack Obama has to say on ANY issue is always nothing more than complete BULLSH!T. He never forces his bizarre opinion on tragedies, unless it leads to legislation that forwards his damaging socialist agenda. The 'rule of thumb' is to completely disregard any of his 'senseless' recommendations. Then we must become totally committed to fight his abusive executive orders. We will preserve the 2nd Amendment regardless of what he, nor the corrupt media and clueless Hollywood has to to say about it.
When a tyrant governs against the will of the people - never expect them to change their stripes. He's NEVER been any damn good for America. And his sycophant lock-step Liberals are just as destructive.
You are pretty much on target man! Of course, I NEVER take my eyes off a rabid dog (he may bite).
