When All You Have is a .38 Hammer… [UPDATED]

Surprise! President Obama thinks that not-murder is a fine justification for more gun control:

President Obama called on the nation to honor Trayvon Martin a day after George Zimmerman was acquitted of his murder by asking “ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence.”

His comments came as family members of Zimmerman and Martin, as well as pundits, celebrities, and court observers had strong reactions to Saturday’s not guilty verdict, with those reactions taking various forms — from joy and outrage to Shakespearean references and calls for peace.

“I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities,” Obama said in a statement on Sunday.

Let me rephrase my intro. A jury found George Zimmerman not guilty because he acted in self-defense, which means we need more gun control to stop not-guilty people like George Zimmerman from acting in self-defense.

No more evidence is needed that gun control is for Democrats what it has always been for them: A way to disarm their intended victims.

UPDATE: For a taste of the race-baiting to come, I have a little something for you at The Tatler.

And, once again, the President, Media and the race pimp lobby have studiously avoided the 800 pound gorilla in the room; the gangsta thug culture common among African American youths. Only when being a violent, ignorant miscreant is eschewed will we stop seeing stories like Trayvon.

“I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son."

That's pretty damn funny given the race-baiting BS churned out by the prosecution and their support base.

After that, we can all work on stemming the tide of teenage thug violence. Or something.

Obama just engaged in classic "shift the goalposts when you're wrong."

I think he's just throwing red meat at his base, and hoping no one notices that it's spoiled.

No, he's trying not to waste a crisis. :-) President Shiny-dreams will use any excuse to take away people's guns.

Agreed. Gun control isn't a way for Democrats to disarm their intended victims, not necessarily. Gun control is an end unto itself. "Heads I win, tails you lose. Heads I get to enact gun control on you, tails you get control enacted on you by me."

Because Guns Are Bad. Why? Because shut up.
