To the “you knew this was coming” gun grab effort by the Left, an effort that Stacy McCain notes Obama has vowed to put his weight behind
Recalling the shooting of 20 first graders as the worst day of his presidency, President Barack Obama on Sunday pledged to put his “full weight” behind a legislative package next year aimed at containing gun violence.
In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama voiced skepticism about proposals to place armed guards at schools in the aftermath of the Dec. 14 deadly assault at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. . . .
Obama said he intended to press the issue with the public. . . .
“Will there be resistance? Absolutely there will be resistance,” he said.
“The question then becomes whether we are actually shook up enough by what happened here that it does not just become another one of these routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away. It certainly won’t feel like that to me. This is something that – you know, that was the worst day of my presidency. And it’s not something that I want to see repeated.
Note that Obama discounted the idea of armed security in schools. That is no surprise, , Liberals have all ridiculed, the suggestion of armed guards. Not because they do not think it will work, but because they want stricter gun laws. For them this is about getting legislation they want, and not about protecting kids.
