No Guns in Speech

I have heard some complaining today because the President didn’t mention guns or gun control in his speech Tuesday night. They said he missed an opportunity because of the recent Arizona shooting and some of the families being there for the speech.

I think he did the right thing by not mentioning it because all the crazies would be saying today that they warned everyone that Obama was going to take their guns away. Of course we know he isn’t and doesn’t plan to, but that would have given them fodder to use in their meme.

I am hearing today that soon the President plans to give a speech soon specifically about guns and the number of shots in magazines. That’s the way it should be, a specific speech on a very serious subject. That deserves a lot of time and tact to get it right.

Good grief - you outlaw guns or gain some type of over the top gun control law then the crazies will really turn out. Guns don't kill people. If the Arizona shooter had used spoons to choke people or knives to harpoon and stab - would anyone every think of banning or putting some type of control on those? Plus, he'd be called the Arizona Spooner.

Agreed 100%. No one's taking anyone's guns away. But if your weapon can cut a deer in half, we might want to question its civilian uses.

I wonder if the President has watching "Bowling for Columbine." If not, he should. No, guns to do not kill people, people pulling the triggers on guns kills people. Keeping guns outta people's hands would go a long way to ending shootings of people in this country.

I grew up hunting deer with my granddad; I get the allure of hunting and guns. And yet, to save people's lives, I'd be ready to very restrictive gun laws, if not outright bans. Wake up, people!
