Anyone who thinks the Senate vote on a
federal gun registry expanded background checks was the be-all and end-all of the federal push for civilian disarmament take note: the anti-gun spin machine is still revolving faster than Mercury. Michelle Obama does her bit to viva la revolution, affirming her husband’s promise to revive gun control ASAP ’cause kids living five miles from her childhood home are living in fear. “Every day they wake up and wonder whether they’re going to make it out of school alive,” Barack Obama’s main squeeze tells CBS [via thehill.com]. And that means “lawmakers have an obligation to these kids to try again.” And it’s not just a few thousand Windy City kids in “gun-free” zones who put the onus on the pols to grab guns. Nope . . .
“We have millions of kids living in these kinds of circumstances who are doing everything right,” Obama said. “And we, as a nation, have to embrace these kids and let them know that we hear them, and see them. One kid told me he felt like he lived in a cage, because he feels like his community is unseen, unheard and nobody cares about it.”
See what she did there? Clearly, the First Lady is a card-carrying member of the Cult of Victimhood. Whereas The People of the Gun understand that armed self-defense is the key to both individual and communal self-reliance.
One country, two philosophies. Place your bets now. Oh wait. You already have. Then watch this space.
