Obama Abdicates, Has Newtown Victim’s Mom Give Weekly Address

“Perfect moral authority”? Over the years we’ve seen Obama use the Weekly Address as simply an extension of his extreme partisan ways and part of the Neverending Campaign. With this week’s we see him officially turn the Office of the President Of The United States into a pure partisan left wing communication tool

(The Blaze) The mother of a first-grade boy shot dead inside Sandy Hook Elementary School sat in for President Barack Obama in his weekly address, choking back tears as she begged Americans to act on gun violence.

Francine Wheeler, whose 6-year-old son, Ben, was killed along with 19 other students and six educators in Newtown, Conn., sat with her husband, David, and urged: “Please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy.”

Wheeler is the first person other than Obama or Vice President Joe Biden to deliver the weekly address since they took office. Obama asked Wheeler to deliver the address; she and her husband wrote the remarks themselves.

While we grieve with the parents, we also note that Connecticut had some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation but still failed to stop Adam Lanza from proceeding with his long planned and well thought out murderous rampage, one which intentionally targeted a school which was a gun free zone because of the ease. We see that none of the laws proposed and/or passed would have stopped this or the other murder sprees. We see that the draconian gun laws in Chicago have failed to stop the gun violence in the town, while leaving law abiding citizens with no legal means to protect themselves and their families (pro tip: peeing on yourself won’t work, particularly because you’ll probably pee yourself when you’re shot).

As usual, Obama and the left are using the parents of Adam Lanza’s victims (we need to stop calling them the “Newtown victims”. It was Adam Lanza who did this) as human shields in order to push their left wing agenda. They couldn’t care less about these people, they simply want to use them then discard them, as they so often do. And notice that, despite supposedly writing the address themselves, the language is almost the same as Obama and other Democrats use. Things like

“And in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other Americans have died at the end of a gun. Thousands of other families across the United States are also drowning in our grief,” Wheeler said.

There were 25,580 deaths by motor vehicle during the first 9 months of 12 (do not have all the data yet), yet, were are the calls to do away with cars? If we could save just one life….

She said Americans must convince the Senate to pass “commonsense gun responsibility reforms” to make communities safer and prevent more tragedies like Newtown — even as “a lot of people are fighting to make sure they never” succeed.

Yet, again, nothing proposed would have stopped these crimes. And nothing proposed really goes after the criminals, just average citizens.

    So teach does taht mean that you are against laws about cars ? Better laws stricter enforcement, and more restrictions will REDUCE the 30,000 gun deaths each year. It will not result in perfection. Motor vehicle deaths have been decreasing for years, thanks to laws and regulations. Lanza ?? how about a law that says if you have anyone who might flip out living in your home, then NO guns. Access is just too easy. So Lanza’s mom would have to choose, live with her kid or live with her guns. Laws like that would REDUCE the 30,000 gun deaths, About twice that many are wounded every year.

    You keep saying that more laws will mean fewer deaths and we keep asking “how and why?”

    Criminals don’t care about laws john.

    If you want to advocate stricter enforcement, that is fine. That means you are on the Conservative and GOP side of the issue. If you think that laws will solve this, you are wrong because the laws aren’t being enforced now.

    Secondly, how dare you try and tell someone that they have to “choose between living with a gun or their child.” Where in the hell do you get that moral or Constitutional authority?

    And of course, you try and distract from the point of the post which is that Obama can’t make the case on his own, so he has to have a stand in to give emotional weight to his position because legally his position is un-Constitutional.

    But there is another issue here as well. Many of the Snady Hook parents have said they don’t want the incident “politicized.” When people were killed by the administration’s ignorance, apathy, mixed up priorities and golf games in Benghazi, your defense into looking into the event was that a parent said they didn’t want the incident “politicized.”

    Now, you think the President should politicize Sandy Hook against the wishes of the parents of the victims.

    We all know why you never really engage in a debate or a discussion here john – because you can’t. You are just a dishonest, hypocritical little liberal troll.

    more laws MAY mean safer communities, but they also mean less free ones. They also mean less individual freedoms.

    But, that’s not a big deal for communists.

    Also, when you disarm the people you are trying to control, then you’ve already won and the people have lost.

    Without a means to protect themselves from tyranny or dictators, then the people are no better than sheep.

    And claiming to protect all humanity by taking the guns away from them, only destroys our humanity.

  4. John is more interested in taking law abiding people’s guns away because of something that MIGHT happen instead of going after criminals
