Obama Gun Violence Press Conference

Fox News just reported that Pres. Obama and VP Biden will roll out a plan to reduce gun violence tomorrow. Joining them at this event will be children from across the country who wrote letters to Pres. Obama after the Newtown school shooting. 

What do you think of President Obama's plan to have these children present?

I think children who speak their thoughts, hear the issues of things that effect them and get involved in sharing their views on political issues early are more likely to play a key part in society. Let them learn, listen and be a part of their communities but protect them in the process. Parents and elders are in key rolls to oversee and guard them as they navigate important issues to them.

Maybe the parents of these children felt that by writing a letter to the President it would help their children express their emotions, feel more in control of their lives by taking action, and further the healing process. However, for the President to link this undeniable tragedy to his own liberal agenda is shameless … and that so many seem to buy into it is frightening!

It is disgraceful, inappropriate and unacceptable for any president of the United States to use children as a propaganda tool to score political gain. It is even shameful of the parents to allow their children to be used in this manner. President Obama is being deceitful to the American people by doing so.

REPREHENSIBLE. I am sick to the point of vomiting over people basically (forgive me) “pimping out” children for political causes - AND parents allowing this to happen. Children are being routinely robbed of their childhoods, and this is just one way it is happening.
