It was during his announcement, earlier today, of his new executive actions aimed at reducing gun violence that Barry actually went so far as to quote Jesus. Barry’s passage of choice comes from the Gospel of John: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” And it was then, while working up some crocodile tears, that Barry then proceeded to make what, I guess, was intended to be his emotional argument for more gun control laws, and in trying to come across as sincere, he ticked off a list of recent mass shootings, including the 2012 shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 children were fatally shot.
Barry said, “Our unalienable right to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness – those rights were stripped from college kids in Blacksburg and Santa Barbara and from high schoolers in Columbine, and from first graders in Newtown – first graders – and from every family who never imagined that their loved one would be taken from our lives by a bullet from a gun.” He went on to say, wiping ‘tears’ from his face, “Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad, and by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago everyday.” I find it more than a bit curious that those unalienable rights to which he refers don’t extend to the unborn, only those shot with a gun.
And strange that he doesn’t seem to feel that same level of level of anger when it comes to the fact that over 300,000 babies that were brutally murdered by Planned Parenthood just last year. Unfortunately it’s those ‘victims’ that Barry apparently doesn’t think are worth the shedding of tears. And yet it strikes me as being more than disgusting how Barry could be so selective when it come for whom he’s willing to shed a tear. Those who are made to die even before even entering this world are seen as being a necessary sacrifice, their death seen as being required in order to advance the leftist cause. But, I digress. That, I suppose is a topic for another day.
Anyway, Barry went on to say, “So, all of us need to demand a Congress brave enough to stand up to the gun lobby’s lies. All of us need to stand up and protect its citizens. All of us need to demand governors and legislators and businesses do their part to make our communities safer.” Barry said the U.S. is “the only advanced country on earth” that sees this kind of violence that happens with this frequency. And he added, “The gun lobby might be holding Congress hostage right now, but they can’t hold America hostage.” Obviously Barry views the gun lobby much differently than he views the abortion lobby, but which results in the higher body count?
Barry said, “We need the wide majority of responsible gun owners who grieve with us every time this happens and feel like your views are not being properly represented to join with us to demand something better.” He went on to say, “Yes, the gun lobby is loud, and it is organized in the defense of making it effortless for guns to be available to anybody anytime. Well you know what? The rest of us, we all need to be just as passionate. We have to be just as organized in defense of our kids.” Why is it that those of us who organize in the defense of the unborn are not seen as being responsible, but just the opposite? We’re seen as being the enemy.
Ya know, it would be just oh so much easier to believe that this guy was more interested in saving lives than he is in gutting the Second Amendment if he wasn’t, at the same time, dedicating so much of his time to defending Planned Parenthood’s rather nasty business of selling baby parts. How can one quote the Bible in one instance and pretend the Bible doesn’t even exist in another? Barry cries crocodile tears in the attempt to convince those watching that he genuinely cares about those who die at the hands of someone with a gun. And yet he has proven time and again that he cares nothing about those who are made to die for the sake of convenience.
