President Obama emerged around 6:30 p.m. to address the press regarding the lethal mass shooting at Umpqua Community College Thursday. His speech quickly moved from an expression of sympathy to a show of anger and frustration to a call to politicize the issue.

Nice try, but it’s the fault of Congress for not doing more to pass gun control; and since you elected your representatives, it’s pretty much your fault.

President Obama did acknowledge responsible gun owners, all of whom are apparently hunters and not tools of the NRA.

We have become numb to this — so numb that the president made no mention whatsoever of the 50 shootings in Chicago over the weekend (and the weekend before that).
