As part of the White House’s Connecticut Love Fest following Governor Dannel Malloy and his cronies eviscerating the Second Amendment in the snort-worthily Constitution State, “Air Force One will fly 11 family members of victims of the Newtown, Conn., shootings to Washington with President Barack Obama after his speech on Monday on gun violence at the University of Hartford.” Yahoo News reports that the Civilian Disarmer in Chief will (again) meet with families of the victims and first responders of Sandy Hook. This time, though, “The White House invited the families to fly on Air Force One so that they could both attend the speech and still get to Washington in time to speak with lawmakers about gun legislation.” Innat nice of him? . . .
And there’s nothing untoward going on here. After all, “These were family members who were planning to be in Washington to speak with Congress about support for taking action to reduce gun violence,” according to White House Press Secretary Jim Carney. So they’re just doing them a favor since everyone was already headed in the same direction. Yeah, right. This marks a last-ditch, full-court press to push the Prez’ agenda before it comes up for vote in Congress. “The White House this week is calling on all of its major players, in addition to the Newtown families, to send a message to Congress on gun reform.”
Gee, I wonder what would happen if a few pro-2A Members of Congress used .gov funds to rush eleven gun rights advocates to D.C. to “speak with lawmakers about gun legislation” before a gun reform package comes up for vote? Yeah. That’s what I thought.
