Barack Obama was once known for delivering soaring, if empty, rhetoric. Now, he’s using lines like this when speaking to a room full of parents whose children were victims of gun violence.

If the president and his allies were really interested in making it harder for our kids to get gunned down, he and they would have favored posting armed security at schools immediately after Sandy Hook. But we all know how that issue has developed. Some of us out here in the hinterlands advocated it, the NRA advocated it, the left denounced it as lunacy, before the president eventually came around and acknowledged that maybe posting armed security at schools isn’t so crazy after all.

We all know this ain't about saving no kids.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -T. Jefferson

The last month of his gun control campaign has simply reeked. Hyperbole, desperation, out and out lies. And all the while the anti-gun media pundits have tried to cover his six by becoming more and more shrill, while simultaneously ignoring very simple facts. Federal gun crime enforcement is down 45%, mental health care funding has been cut over $4 billion, and Chicago, L.A., and NY lead the pack on the worst cities for gun crime enforcement. All under Obamas watch.

This is the guy who repeatedly voted against any limit to late-term abortions.
He shouldn't talk about kids.
