Obama must lead on gun control
The Kansas City Star
President Barack Obama just held an emotional press conference, asking for prayers for the children and parents affected by the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
But I’m appalled that the president didn’t say the simple words that he could and should have: “I will work on a responsible, reasonable but tough gun control bill in 2013.”
And to those who say, this isn’t the time, I say:
Don’t let those children at Sandy Hook die in vain, Mr. President.
Find some courage, tackle the issue that affects so many people every day of the year, and work on gun control. We’ve got 270 million guns in the hands of civilians today.
Is that not enough for the gun nuts out there?
The looming fiscal cliff is a big issue, right? Well, so is gun control.
And on this issue, I’m a gun control nut.
