Obama's Unilateral Gun Control To Be Announced While He Is Surrounded by Children

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Gun Control proposals are coming, according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.  Biden has told us that if Obama can't get the Congress to go along with him, the President will enact gun control through executive action.  Congressman Jeff Duncan has said that if Obama chooses to act unilaterally, he is ". . . ready and prepared to rescind any executive order that President Obama might introduce that restricts our Constitutional rights. No President has the power to unilaterally make law. This is about a lot more than the second amendment, this is about freedom."

On top of planning on announcing Wednesday Morning he will be unveiling a “concrete package” of gun control proposals, including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing alleged loopholes on background checks, Obama's spokesman, Jay Carney, also said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings.

“They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed.

This kind of use of children to achieve a political agenda is nothing new.  Islamic jihadists use children as human shields when fighting an enemy.  Adolf Hitler once said, "The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people.  As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation."

Obama's use of children to announce his gun control proposals is a pathetic exploitation of children, in the hopes of generating an emotional response to promote his tyrannical agenda.  This is how the liberal left operates. It is not about freedom, safety, common sense, or even a reasonable approach to the issues. Their statist agenda is all about using the emotions of voters, and dependency upon government by the people, to enable the liberal left democrats to gain more control while taking away our liberties.  Yet, they veil their attempt to steal rights and freedoms in a mask of safety, and "the common good."

With the opposition rising up and becoming louder, and gun sales going through the roof, the post-Newtown anti-gun fervor is not exactly what the democrats thought it would be, so the decision to surround himself with children when he announces gun control proposals is an act of desperation never seen before by a President of the United States of America.

But, why would the democrats, and more specifically, Barack Obama, resort to such a low action as tug on human emotions by surrounding himself with children while taking away precious rights, like other tyrants before him?  Could it be that the facts don't support his unconstitutional, anti-firearm agenda?

The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
