Obama: We Can't Pray With Clean Conscience Unless We Stop Easy Access to Weapons of War on Our Streets

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.”

Here is the full text of President Obama’s statement:

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.

Bullshit.  Barry ONLY prays to Allah....!!!!!

Trickle-down lawlessness=the lawlessness on our streets is a direct result of having a lawless leader (term used loosely) in the district of corruption!  

Completely agree.  Disgusting that we have so many traitors in congress and jcos that this maggot continues to destroy our country.

   Hey Obabooonzo we do not pray to Allah we do not pray for the freaks who perpetrate heinous crimes. WE PRAY FOR OUR NATION UNDER SEIGE BY THE LIKES OF THE BANOONZO.

Concerned about this LEO, and family, when it promotes his agenda.  As for the LEO in Ferguson, MO....not so much. 

Somebody kills someone else using a knife, gun, fork, sharp stick... and I'm supposed to feel guilty?
How's that work?

Obama needs to do his job and care for the mentally tweaked of our society and then we will have fewer people being shot, AS OF DATE HE DOES NOTHING AND THEY ROAM OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND STREETS AND HIDE IN GHETTO's,

How does Obama make such comments when he orders thousands of convicted violent felons, including murders and big time drug dealers released from prison and onto our streets?  That's OK.............but guns in the hands of law abiding citizens must be first, registered and second, confiscated.......I really don't get it !

The so-called Liberal socialist left wing have a psychological need to control people. The idea behind "gun control" isn't for the safety of us citizens, it's to disarm law abiding citizens so that Big Government can exercise total control over us. We think government is out of control now? If citizens were disarmed, Obama and any other socialist/communist politician would become tyrants in the model of Joe Stalin's communist Russia. Its always been the dream of the Socialists to transform the US into their idea of a Socialist Utopia where a small number of elites can enforce their will upon everybody else. To illustrate how the mind of Barack Obama works, he once said that he was impressed by the way Joe StaLin was able to control the Russian people. Joe Stalin killed millions of Russian people in order impliment communism upon the Russian people. Bill Ayers, Obama's close friend and communist is documented to have said that as many as 20 million people (American citizens) may have to be eliminated in order to impliment communism in the US. Obama and his associates are anti-Constititional subversives and traitors. The worthless RINOS and Progressives serve to enable Obama to continue with his treason. I believe a bloody civil war is enevitable. The primary targets should be the politicians who got us here. Every last one of them should be hung or put in front of a firing squad. They would have brought this upon themselves for being enablers or outright traitors.

         TERENCE,

        " BECAUSE OBAMA IS NOT A  PROPONENT OF AMERICAN VALUES " !!!

           He is an "AGENT PROVOCATEUR" whose mission is to DESTROY US !!!!!

And your mu-slime brothers NEVER yell GOD IS GREAT (ALLA ACKBAR) before they KILL Americans.Look America A BLACK pot calling The Copper kettle black.

Omitted using the murdered's names-A cop & 2 citizens-Likely doesn't know or care who they were. Referring to prayers? Frankly, believe he doesn't practice latter. Anything this 'person' utters is purely Agenda-driven. Nothing more. Nothing less.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
