Oregon Shootings

First of all, thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families of Thursday's shootings at Oregon's Umpqua Community College.

Second, I'm having a hard time containing my outrage at the antics of the loser currently wasting oxygen in the White House. I cannot believe that pathetic worm masquerading as the 'leader' of this country would politicize the tragic shootings while the bodies were still warm.
President Obama on Thursday made an impassioned case that gun violence is “something we should politicize” following a mass shooting at a community college in Oregon.
In his disgraceful rush to advance his political agenda while standing atop the dead bodies of the victims, barry performed his usual trick of misdirection, misleading, and outright lying about a problem - much less offering any solutions.
Eager to distract the country from the collapse of his Syria policy and the triumph of Russia in replacing the U.S. as the dominant force in the Middle East, he seized upon the deaths as means to advance his anti-gun agenda, with absolutely no knowledge of the guns used, or the means by which the shooter acquired them.  He referred to himself 28 times in the course of his 12-minute speech.

The president insisted that "modest regulation," consistent with the Second Amendment rights of "law-abiding gun owners," could "prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America." ... (but he) did not mention a single specific policy fitting that description.

So far, President Obama has said nothing about the ongoing carnage in his hometown of Chicago, where every weekend sees a slaughter nearly as bad as the event in Roseburg.
The reaction to these shootings will be predictable - on both sides. Leftists will call for more stringent gun-control laws. Those of us on the other side will counter that the shooter violated numerous existing laws, and more wouldn't have deterred him.

Perhaps the most obvious broken law was the one prohibiting firearms on campus. I don't understand why the anti-gun crowd believes that gun-free zones prevent gun violence. There are nine dead people in Oregon who could testify to the fallacy of that belief.

Thursday's events are going to be hashed and rehashed ad nauseum. I'll leave that to others. I will, however, save several thousand words by posing a few pictures that sum up my opinion.

Obama knows he's protected by the "Racist" shield. No one including the Republicans dare to push back. He's just about shoved the country I knew over the brink and he will succeed before he leaves the white house. In fact, no matter who wins in 2016 Obama will continue to rule because everyone is now scared shitless to be called out publically by the liberal media and branded as: RACIST!

NFO - every time I think that asshole can't do anything worse, he does...

WSF - really! Saying "me" or "I" 28 times in a 12 minute speech about murder victims ... what an absolute total asshole.

Toejam - I guess I must be a racist, because I think he's a total absolute asshole.

Anyone sensing a theme here...?

I was just relating how Obama & thugs use the term to destroy innocent people. It's powerful cause 80% of the American people are naive?.....Stupid?....or reverse racist?
