In an email sent out just this past weekend by the Democrat Party, Barry “Almighty” made it very clear that if it’s the very last thing he is able to do, he is determined to rip guns from the hands of law abiding Americans. And in so doing, he urged his many devoted followers to join with him in his effort to enact ever-stricter gun laws. Devoted followers who, like Barry, have very little interest in, or respect for, what our Constitution actually says.
Barry begins his idiotic little rant in very typical form by saying, "We have not gone more than eight days without a mass shooting in this country this year." And he then goes on to say, "That means that each week, more families are grieving, more communities are being pieced back together. As a nation, we're holding everyone affected by these heartbreaking events in our prayers." But, he goes on to add, prayers simply are not enough.
The email also provides a handy little link to a Democrats.org webpage where those who chose to do so can add their name to a petition to support Barry’s cause. In what is obviously an effort on his part to boost the seriousness of the issue as he sees it, Barry also goes on to make the claim that there have been more than 300 mass shootings in the United States so far in 2015, killing nearly 400 and injuring 1,000. An exaggeration to say the least.
And then in what I’m assuming was a reference to a statement by GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush after the October Oregon community college shooting, Barry said, "We can't sweep this problem under the rug, or allow ourselves to become numb to it, or accept that there's nothing we can do because 'stuff happens.'" But what is something that is being swept under the rug is the sheer volume of gun laws, already on the books, that go unenforced.
Barry says, "Let me be clear about this: Unless we do something – change our politics and change our laws – these painful tragedies will continue." Now of course he doesn’t bother to not lay out any sort of a specific strategy. Barry says the issue is not about the Second Amendment, but about "commonsense reform measures" the American people ‘want’. Despite his previous attempts at executive actions, Barry says, "I cannot change this by myself.”
Barry goes on to say, "I need members of Congress, state legislatures, and governors who will work with me." And he adds, "And I need people like you to stand up and say that enough is enough." And then in trying to sound motivational, I guess, Barry proudly cites what he refers to as those things he view as being Democrat gains. You know such as Obamacare, same-sex marriage and climate change. Things that any sane person views as being anything but gains.
Barry said, "But this is one thing we haven't been able to do." And he went on to say, "We have not reformed our gun laws to help reduce the unnecessary deaths we see in this country every single day." But it is not too late, he said, "by making sure we urge future leaders to act where we have been stalled.” Perhaps if Barry’s focus was more on the actual enforcement of gun laws that which he claims to care so much about, unnecessary deaths, would actually be reduced.
And so it would seem then, that when Barry’s not busying himself releasing thousands of drug offenders from prison, or allowing untold numbers of those who are in this country illegally to remain here even after committing any number of violent crimes or even closing down Guantanamo Bay and bringing the terrorists locked up there here to American soil, he’s busy trying to come up with new ways to redefine our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
