Barack Obama, surrounded by kids, spoke to the American people on Wednesday to tell them about the many gun restrictions he's putting in place by Executive decree - and the larger ones he wants Congress to pass - in order to help non-aborted children live long enough to pay off the trillion-dollar debts he's running up.
The president's actions were theoretically spurred by the many letters he receives from children, which is certainly credible as most of his policies appear to be directed by those who are totally unschooled in math, history, or the Constitution.
Unfortunately, none of the president's announced initiatives do much other than disarm responsible gun owners, which is likely his actual objective. He failed to address, in any meaningful way, the greater problem of psychotic maniacs - who, unsurprisingly, are frequently found at the scene of mass murders (and occasionally storming our undefended consulates in Libya, or mowing down enemies of the Mexican drug cartels using DOJ-supplied weapons).
The president did, however, recommend much more stringent background checks and psychological profiling for anyone who wants to buy a gun.
Hope n' Change would like to suggest that in the future, that same standard should be applied to the man who controls our nuclear arsenal.
