Speaking of shooting victims' families, there's another family the president ought to meet

As Twitchy reported, President Obama traveled to Orlando, Fla., Thursday, where he met with and hugged loved ones of those killed in the Pulse nightclub terrorist massacre, adding that anyone defending “the easy accessibility of assault weapons” should also meet the families.


It’s not much of an argument, but it’s one that can be applied to just about any tragedy to gain a bit of political leverage with little effort. For example, one could just as easily argue that those who support the existence of sanctuary cities should meet with, say, the family of Kate Steinle, gunned down on a San Francisco pier by an illegal alien with a criminal record who had been deported five times.


We’d hesitate even to bring Steinle into the conversation out of respect for her memory, but her own family members have made it perfectly clear that no one except San Fransisco’s mayor reached out to them after her murder. Brother Brad Steinle last year told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly that his family had “not heard a word” from the White House.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was in San Francisco last fall where he delivered an address slamming the idea of a border fence. He also — after being asked if he’d already done so while in the city — added that “perhaps” he should visit the site of Steinle’s murder “to pay respects to her memory.”


But if a border fence prevented the cold-blooded murder of just one innocent American citizen, it would be worth it, right?
