Obama tries to revive his gun control agenda.

“There is nothing inevitable about it — it comes about because of decisions we make or fail to make,” Obama said, referring to the shootings and killings. Just as he was attempting to consul victims families over the Navy Yard shooting.

“Our tears are not enough,” Obama told thousands gathered to mourn at the Marine Barracks. “Our words and our prayers are not enough. If we really want to honor these 12 men and women, if we really want to be a country where we can go to work and go to school and walk our streets free from senseless violence without so many lives being stolen by a bullet from a gun, then we’re going to have to change.”

But all that is lost on Obama in Chicago gangs, guns, shootings and senseless killing. Chicago is now the murder capitol of America And he takes absolutely no stand on that. Nor does he demagogue the city where it’s happening.

Obama said when such senseless deaths strike in America, “it ought to be a shock to all of us, it ought to obsess us. It ought to lead to some sort of transformation.” But, Obama said, “nothing happens. Alongside the anguish of these American families, alongside the accumulated outrage so many of us feel, sometimes I fear there is a creeping resignation that these tragedies are just somehow the way it is, that this is somehow the new normal. We cannot accept this. As Americans bound in grief and love, we must insist here today there is nothing normal about innocent men and women being gunned down where they work.”

So which senseless deaths is he talking about? Most of America is shocked and outraged at what’s happening in Chicago. What transformation has it led to? That doesn’t seem to be on his radar. And not only does nothing happen there, but the numbers set records.

“sometimes I fear there is a creeping resignation that these tragedies are just somehow the way it is, that this is somehow the new normal.”

Isn’t that his de facto perspective on Chicago? It must be. Not like he hasn’t heard about it. Isn’t this the new norm? Where even kids cannot go safely to school or come home, or people are not safe to go to work and walk the streets in Chicago. Where kids playing on the playground get shot. But he ignores that. So ask Obama what decisions were made that caused all the shooting, killing in Chicago?

PS: America did not forget his administration’s gun running campaign leading to deaths too numerous to count, spreading across the border. Yet he lectures!

    The Resident is incapable of true sympathy. The Resident does not demonstrate true compassion. The Resident is oblivious to anyone but himself and his agenda. The Resident is exactly the wrong person to be President of the United States. Thumbs down to all who voted for him and double that who voted for him twice.

    Great post, Bullright. Clearly demonstrates the above and folks need to be pummeled with these examples!

    I want to smack him for using this occasion to push his gun control agenda. That was in very bad taste, but so typical of him.

    He can’t or won’t address the Chicago situation because it’s solid evidence that gun control doesn’t work. It would be counter-productive to his commie narrative, so instead they look at bringing in the National Guard. I see police state on the horizon.

      Kathy, it was so smugly arrogant and disrespectful. I’m sure it never bothered him a bit. He’s just a gangsta thug himself. And heck he’s got half of America “jumped in” to his gang. How the military tolerates this thug is mind-boggling. Even Egypt threw Morsi out in short order, But Obama dances on undeterred .
