In reading and listening to numerous news reports on the gun control debate, I've noticed a double standard regarding this important issue.While everyone agrees that deranged people who use guns to murder innocent people is a senseless tragedy, why does President Barack Obama condone murder by other means?
While Mr. Obama rightly condemns murder by gun, why does he condone and actively promote the slaughter of more than 1 million totally innocent babies in the United States each year? He seems to be perfectly fine with this.
Also, what about Operation Fast and Furious? In this failed U.S. government-sanctioned operation, guns were allowed to be smuggled into Mexico from the United States by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives without the knowledge of Mexican authorities. These guns were not tracked as to where they were going in Mexico. These guns were used by Mexican drug cartels to murder numerous Mexican citizens. In fact, a U.S. Border Patrol agent was murdered by someone using one of these guns. This has been documented by U.S. government officials. So far, no one has been held accountable for this government-sponsored operation. What was the true reason for this fiasco and where is the outrage from Mr. Obama? There is none, period.
One may ask: What is Mr. Obama's true agenda in this gun control issue? His true agenda is abundantly clear. He wants nothing less than total disarmament of law-abiding U.S. citizens. He's using the acts of a very few deranged people as an excuse to leave law-abiding citizens totally defenseless.
