Obama: If gun control saves one child, it’s worth it; Conservatives shred his logic

Tomorrow morning, President Obama is set to reveal his strategy to combat gun violence. We still don’t know exactly what sorts of measures Obama will propose, but at today’s briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney reiterated the president’s commitment to taking “meaningful action” — for the children:

What’s wrong with this picture?

If what Carney says is true, couldn’t — and shouldn’t — this logic be extended to, well, everything?

There are so many steps we can take toward #SavingOneChildsLife:

Or, just take care of business in one fell swoop:

That’s the ticket!

    Shameless

    Obama has the most extreme position imaginable on abortion. The most extreme position of probably any politician in WA

    Carney is just spewing propaganda from an evil narcissist that pushed for babies to be left to die in a closet after being born after a botched abortion. The Obama Administration is vile and disgusting.

    • jo leone

      As you watch Obama’s GunGrab speech, remember he would have killed those kids if they had survived a botched abortion!

      Obama declared that the need to protect abortion was so grave that it would be wrong to require medical care for babies who survive since that might chip away at abortion “rights” — even though the bill specifically stated that it would have no impact on a woman’s right to an abortion.

      Obama has referred to babies born in botched abortions as a fetus outside the womb. Obama appears to be trying to justify the murder through inattention of a born human being because the mother wanted to kill the child.

      President Obama believes that partial-birth abortion — where, for example, a little girl is partially delivered until all but the her head is outside of her mother’s body, whereupon the girl’s brains are mushed up with a knife and her head crushed — should be legal. The AMA declared that there is never a medical need for such a barbarous procedure.

      pro-life blogger extraordinaire Jill Stanek, is the R.N. who was instructed by her superior to place a born•alive baby who was intended to be destroyed by aborting in a closet to starve + die.

      Instead, Jill stayed w/ the child in a secluded room, holding him until his death.

        Stay focused if abortions are outlawed, rich republics will fly their mistresses to anyplace in the world that can do it safely. Poor nd middle class women will die in dark allies. You now this but you act like you care. You don’t care, you don’t give a damn. Protect the children we have on earth already before you start chatting this mess. How many kids in the world go sot bed starving. How many are in war torn zones? How many dies when the republicans lied about weapons of mass destruction?

        Americans are not stupid just you. Only some children matter to you

        • SpinMeNot

          With regard to some children — pot calling kettle black there.

          Prove that a single rich Republican has flown, or would fly a mistress to someplace in the world to have an abortion; and that no Rich Democrat would not do said thing. Glass houses, throwing stones, etc.

          Oh and with regard to dark alleys … lets talk about the number of law abiding citizens that are killed or deprived of their personal property in dark alleys by punks with an illegal gun or a legal knife because the victim doesn’t have a gun and/or doesn’t know how to use one.

          Keep humping that coconut, it appears to be the only thing you actually understand and are good at doing.

        • Grumpa Grumpus

          @fmahoney:
          So! What you’re saying is, in essence, the the same things that abortion-loving, phony-science of Eugenics believing, slaver Progressives always use as Argument Of Last Resort:

          If they really want it, they’ll find a way to get it— so don’t make criminals out of them! Legalize recreational drug use, abortion, sex with children, Roman Polanski-style rape (since Oopsi Goldborg says “it wasn’t rape-rape! She didn’t say no!”…b/c she was drugged unconscious…)!

          Apparently the Progressives— as a type— don’t care about the well-being, or even like, children. If they did they wouldn’t so callously use & discard them as needed solely to manipulate people who aren’t a Progressives’ equal as a sociopath.

          Has anyone else come to the conclusion that when you need to find a huge body of sociopaths for any reason all you need to do is look for a gathering of Progressives?

          Whether the philosophy makes the sociopath or the sociopath makes the philosophy can be well-argued from either viewpoint. But why we defer to them setting the debate’s terms I’ll never understand.

          And we absolutely need to stop referring to Progressivism as a mental disease! It sounds too jovial– as if we’re engaging in hyperbole– to the majority’s ear and thus trivializes the truth of the statement.

          Perhaps

          “Progressivism/Liberalism: The philosophy of sociopaths.”

          would be better?

          What do you-all think? I’m asking that in earnest.

    100 million people have been killed in the past 100 years because of governments that were not accountable to their people. Those convinced the President’s plan is so noble are also convinced of the governments benign nature, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

    • David Mueller

      This is such a salient point. Setting aside the inaccuracy of the claim that “children will be saved”, millions of Americans are willfully giving up more and more liberty and therefore responsibility and control to a federal government birthed by a desire to escape tyranny. Ironic, and so sad.

    I guess conservatives have got to stop being so darn decent. Because the left jumped in front and immediately, with some media help, the narrative was that gun control would’ve kept the weapons out of the shooter’s hands. Gun control is what we need to prevent this. If you oppose gun control, you oppose saving little children. And this was the official line instantly, long before the victims were even identified. As all this happened, prominent conservatives were quietly respectful, staying out of the conversation entirely for days. By the time we felt it appropriate to respond, the narrative was set and we were in a deep hole.

    So I’m through being nice on this issue. This is a president who approves of killing millions of unborn and, in some cases, partially born children. And this is a president who is going to surround himself with children for political exploitation or even personal protection tomorrow, as he antagonizes his bitterest enemies with radical gun control measures. Truly shameful.

    And still this list lists only a grain of sand on a beach of things that kill atleast one child every year!

    Alcohol causes 100,000 annual fatalities including children but I will give it a pass because I like it. But I don’t like guns so I will ban them just as soon as I can pin all of the onus on white people instead of my fellow black dem supporters who do 90% of all the killings. I will vigorously and earnestly, if not entirely disingenuously and dishonestly, politicize all and only white murderers until the cows come home, all in the name of fairness.

    Hey Dinglebarry ….. you want to save the children? How about recommending all liberals raise their children with conservative values? That’s what we do and the results are irrefutible. Conservative values save lives. We don’t have exploding homicides, fatherlessness, epic envy and hopelessness in our neighborhoods …. not even our poorer GOP neighborhoods.

    Teaching learned helplessness and misinformation the way you do in exchange for votes has destroyed the lives and communities you claim to care for …. it’s called socialism/communism and it has failed everywhere it has been implemented …. how tragically ignorant can you be, Mr. President?

      Criminy!

      Yes, that’s what Bill Clinton, Eric Holder, Janet Reno said when they murdered 83 unarmed men, women and children by burning them alive with CS gas (that is banned by international warfare treaties) at Waco Texax. They said “we wanted to prevent them from being slapped.” So they burned them alive instead. Fine folks, nothing but the best.

      • TomJB

        Every basic trainee (can only speak for the Army) goes through a gas chamber filled with CS, and is required to remove the mask and answer some questions, thereby breathing it in. Disorientation, coughing, and vomiting follow – it is generally the drill sergeants’ favorite day of training. Waco was a travesty, but the gas to which you are referring is definitely not CS. CS is a type of tear gas: it causes no long-term harm (on otherwise healthy people), does not burn flesh, and is certainly not banned.

    However, what he is saying is, Weapons (swords, guns, etc) are merely constructs for humans, made by humans. If a gun came to life, and attacked people on it’s own volition, then, we have to wonder. But, its not. It is the people who wield the weapons, and make the choice to commit terrible acts of brutality.

    “if even 1 child’s life can be saved by actions taken in Washington,” we won’t know about it because it is impossible to know what *might* have happened. Much like we can’t point to actual numbers of people not killed because they were able to defend themselves. We can quote the number of attacks thwarted but we can’t say for sure whether or not the 12 year old in Oklahoma would have been killed had she not shot her attacker, whether or not the mother in Georgia would have been killed had she not shot her attacker, or whether or not the seniors in that shop in Florida would have been killed if that one guy didn’t shoot them and chase them out of the place. The left will always have their hard number of people killed and will take great pleasure at us not having a number. Dancing on graves, indeed.
