  •  Yeah, I almost wouldn't blame him (7+ / 0-)

    for avoiding this issue only for reasons of his family's safety.  I mean, for all of us who want gun laws reformed and tightened, how many of us would put ourselves and our families in harms way to get it done?  Certainly if Obama takes any meaningful action on this, the heavily-armed crazies will be whipped into a frenzy by the NRA, Tea Party, GOP, right wing radio, and gun manufacturers.  Even talking about this takes great courage, ESPECIALLY from Obama--especially since there will be a number of democrats in Washington who won't have his back.

      A fine time to identify all the shitbags.

      This post is dedicated to myself, without whom, I'd be somebody else. Though I'd still be an asshole. My Music: []

      This isn't anything new. The 'shooters' are feeling safe enough to be blatant with all the hate talk for the last 4 years & esp. the last election.

      This is a showdown & we have to win it. None of us is safe with heavily armed crazy neighbors everywhere.

      Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
