A Good Crisis Not Wasted

My heart was greatly grieved by the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, with 20 children and 6 adults being ruthlessly gunned down. But I knew that the Left would try to politicize this heart wrenching tragedy. It's not quite as tragic as an abortion clinic (there’s always a death there but that is considered legal and “Ok“) or the Administration's & MSM sweeping under the rug the tragedy in Benghazi but that's another post.

Obama took time out from his $4 million dollar Hawaiian vacation to capitize on the tragedy. Never mind the looming Fiscal Cliff he and his cronies created. He thinks it's more important to ban something so he'll temporarily look good, then he can go back to swilling Pina Colada's and bad mouthing our country.
Obama on Wednesday directed Vice President Joe Biden to produce recommendations on new gun laws and pledged to push for them without delay.

Along with asking Congress to reinstate the assault weapons ban, Obama asked lawmakers to pass legislation that would close the gun show “loophole,” which allows people to purchase firearms from private dealers without a background check. Obama also said he wanted Congress to pursue the possibility of limiting high-capacity ammunition clips.

[…]

The 1994 ban outlawed specific weapons, including the Colt AR-15, UZI and TEC-9, and high-capacity magazines and clips that held more than 10 bullets. But the law didn’t outlaw the caliber — the approximate internal diameter of the barrel—of any of the high powered weapons used in the most recent mass killings.

[…]

“I am also betting that the majority, the vast majority, of responsible, law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war,” Obama said.
Too late! The government already has too many guns and that's our biggest danger.

So, thanks to one mad man, there will be a loss of even more God-given freedoms. “Never let a good crisis go to waste” as Obama’s devout communist hero Rahm Emanuel always says. But don’t worry folks. That which God gives us is sure to be stolen by those in power.

Consider this: no matter how many laws are passed the world will still be a dangerous place. Banning anything only makes it more dangerous or desirable. I think we should arm everyone, especially teachers, like in Israel. That way no school is a target rich environment. Just think how that tragedy wouldn’t have even gone that far if at least one teacher or administrator was packin’ heat.

Arming teachers would be great. My father and I both carried guns in our briefcases during the years we taught. Nothing wrong with that then, but in today "gun free zones" that would be considered criminal. Only criminals can go into schools now with a gun---something wrong here.
