“The president is going to act” on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden said this morning. “There are executive orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required.”
Under his watch, Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice oversaw Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed thousands of guns to enter into the bloodstream of the drug war in Mexico. Hundreds of Mexican citizens’ and at least two Americans’ deaths have been linked to those weapons.
Biden continued: “As the president said, if your actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking.”
One life? Under President Barack Obama’s watch, abortions have climbed to the point that in the United States that we abort about 3,500 per day.
Obama has increased funding to Planned Parenthood to nearly half a billion dollars a year. He supported infanticide during his tenure in the Illinois Senate.
I bring up both Fast and Furious and Planned Parenthood to make a simple point: Whatever the president ends up doing, it is not really about saving lives.
