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: We Can't Pray With Clean Conscience Unless We Stop Easy Access to Weapons of War on Our Streets"
Thompson: We can't rest while the Chief Executive has easy access to dictatorial Executive Orders in our federal government.
And this tin-plated crackpot, who picks and chooses which laws he will execute YET IS SWORN TO EXECUTE ALL, figures he does.
A clean conscience ? How the hell would he know ? He doesn't have one !
You are right, he does not have a conscience. A classic symptom of raging narcissism.
Did this Muslim president ever consider that maybe, just maybe his worthless policies & racist attitude might be driving some mentally unbalanced people to commit crimes against society?
I agree. Enough of your TREASON, you lying rooster sucking muslime POS. You have no problem selling arms illegally to muslimes but you are ok with violating the Constitution by calling for gun confiscation.
What a Total WORTHLESS PIECE OF S_ _ T!
THIS PERSON NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE WHITE HOUSE----ANY WAY POSSIBLE, WITHOUT DELAY, HE IS NOW A DANGER TO THE HEALTH & SECURITY OF AMERICA------ ON A VAST SCALE!
HIS CABINET MUST ALSO BE REMOVED FROM POWER AND ALL BE TRIED FOR TREASON ALONG WITH THEIR BOSS!
Chris, Please stop calling this imposter a leader ! He has no leadership qualities !
Good ! I'm sorry! It's just that a lot of people still call him "OUR LEADER" ! He is not my leader.
I can't even call him president. He is not my prez. He is commander in chump.
Obama is an idiot who has not got an ounce of sense at all...I cannot wait for him to me gone for good! He is nothing but a muslim sympathizer and the worst person to be in the Office of the Presidency...he is a disgrace and made a mockery of America!!!! I do detest him! An anti-America jerk is the nicest I can possibly come up with....
I don't understand why Obama needs to give a speech to any one about guns. Just run tape #6, over and over. SSDD!
This is a dead end agenda for the Obama bunch, ever time they push for gun control Americans push back by buying more guns, LOL. It's a very personal subject to leave any one unarmed and able to protect their selves and their families. Americans understand this and ain't going to have any..
Oh, just fuek-off!
