I saw this on Facebook via Cold Dead Hands:
I’m not trying to say that Obama and the rest of the gun-control crowd are hypocrites who pick and choose at what death’s bother them and which don’t, I….oh, wait, yes, I am saying that.
If you’re wondering why I’m harping on alcohol, it’s not as a teetotaling temperance adherent, it’s because it’s so easy to call out the lies and inconsistencies we see from the President using this as an example.
When we INSTANTLY see him resorting to “we need gun control” speeches before we know any of the relevant details after a killing, and when the facts (background check passed, gun-control zone in place) show that none of their “reasonable” and “common sense” gun laws mean anything, I want to compare it to something like this.
With so many dying from this particular cause like impaired driving each night, he could just as easily stand up and say the things he does about guns. But he doesn’t, does he? He apparently only cares about people who die from an instrument that he can stigmatize in a manner that will take away the rights of his political opponents. Cherry pick much?
If he didn’t, he’d be saying, “If we can save just one life by restricting how alcohol is sold, it’s worth it!” “No one needs 100 proof liquor!” “We see this too often.” “We need to do something.”
A commenter remarked, “Drunks make good Democrat voters; armed citizens do not.” Uhhhh …. yeah!
GALLUP: American liberals are more likely to drink than American conservatives.
