It is absolutely despicable how this administration treats tragedies. Just a few short hours after the tragic shooting at a community college in Oregon this morning that killed ten people they already shouting for gun control. We knew it would happen since they use any event to push the gun control agenda which is actually only about control over the American people.
According to The Hill, the Obama administration wasted no time and came right out with their idiotic push to preach gun control.
Passing tougher laws to help prevent gun violence remains a high priority for President Obama, the White House said Thursday after reports of a mass shooting resulting in multiple casualties.
“The issue of sensible steps that can be taken to protect our communities from gun violence continues to be a top priority of this administration,” press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.
Earnest said the “vast majority of Americans” support stricter gun laws, including closing the so-called gun-show loophole. But he said Obama is “realistic” about the dim prospects of congressional action on gun control.
“The president has been quite candid about how this is and has been a source of frustration for him,” he said.
“It has at all not been lowered at all on the priority scale, but at the same time the president is realistic that we’ll need to see a fundamental change” about how the public presses for action.
We could sit here and debate the fact that stricter gun control laws would actually make the American people less safe, but this is not the time for that. This is now the time to pray for the families that have been impacted by this senseless tragedy and leave politics outside the door.
Unfortunately, we have a complete narcissist in the White House which means he must make it somehow all about him and his legacy.
