Obama Hands Weekly Address Over to Sandy Hook Parent
Maybe if Obama would propose one thing that would help prevent the next Sandy Hook it might matter.
Check it out:
When it comes to exploiting the tragedy of the Sandy Hook massacre to push a completely unrelated gun control agenda, President Obama has no peer. The White House announced today that it would hand over the President’s weekly internet and radio address to Francine Wheeler, mother of 6-year-old Ben Wheeler, who was murdered by Adam Lanza in Newtown, Connecticut. Jay Carney, summing up the emotional appeal of the administration’s gun control agenda, admitted that the exploitation of the families had been “critical” to progress on gun control.
On Friday, Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA), the Republican behind the bipartisan push for gun control in the Senate, admitted that his plan for expanded background checks would not have done anything to stop the massacre in Newtown. It is patently obvious that Lanza, who had never been adjudicated mentally ill, had no criminal history, and stole the guns used at Sandy Hook from his mother, would not have been stopped by the Senate’s newest gun legislation.
