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.
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.
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 !
" 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.
