Obama: We must ´take meaningful action
to prevent more tragedies like this´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/15/2012 9:28:05 AM

On Friday, we learned that more than two dozen people were killed when a gunman opened fire in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. Most of those who died were just young children with their whole lives ahead of them. And every parent in America has a heart heavy with hurt. Among the fallen were also teachers—men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.

I think a great start would be reinstating prayer in schools.

Do you thinhk this is the meaningful action that Obama might have in mind?

Arm the teachers so incidents like this won´t happen again, but I doubt that the Communist in Chief meant that.

Sorry, must disagree with #6. The only segment who would benefit from the psychological solution are those in the mental health industry. Metal detectors would be far more effective. If the gunman can´t get in, who can he shoot?

Meaningful action would be to put up signs at schools saying, "Armed Security on Staff" and arm them. Instead, innocent children get smugly stupid signs saying, "Gun-free Zone" (that may as well say "Target-Rich Environment").

While we´re at it, let´s take a meaningful survey of all the gun grabbing control-freak politicians and celebrities to see how many of them have armed security. Disgusting hypocrites who want to punish people who didn´t do anything because it makes them feel good about themselves.

A root cause analysis of this event would not reveal the gun to be the cause. Until our society is forced to do what any successful business would do to eliminate incidents, nothing will change.

Meaningful action means doing what feels good, or fits an agenda not what is meaningful nor provide action.

#10 excellent points. I too have known good families with a troubled kid. Very very sad. Our mental health industry can do next to nothing. It´s some people making a buck...prescribing mild sedatives for the most part. Not much better than leeches (the medicine...or, wait...)

I submit that this societies young people have become desentizied to violence through violent ideo games, bloody violent movies such as those by Tarantino, the "Hostel" films, the everyday violence in the black neighborhoods, etc. this is what has to be cleaned up, and fast. They are burying their heads in the sand by avoiding these issues and blaming it all on guns.

The FIRST and most fundamental thing we must do is to bring back three things currently very unpopular in this society -- morality, self-control, and responsibility. Teach the younger generation RIGHT FROM WRONG and make them aware that it is their RESPONSIBILITY to control their behavior and do what is right!

True mental illness will always be with us. But to be brutally honest, how many of the people who are currently diagnosed with mental illnesses are really MORALLY ill? We bring up our children without a sense of right and wrong, and then when they act out their fallen human natures, we give them drugs and call them mentally ill. The TV and the schools tell them all day long that they´re entitled to do whatever "feels good" and that self-control is a bad and repressive thing. Then we wonder why they don´t control their impulses, including the most vicious ones.

There will always be those who insist on breaking moral rules. However, how can we expect moral behavior from a generation that never learned the difference between moral and amoral behavior? It ain´t rocket science, folks.

There are always warnings. Unfortunately, liberals led the charge to empty mental hospitals, starting back in the 1950s.

As liberals always do, they neglected to think it through. A society that puts up too many hurdles to the evaluation and hospitalization of the mentally ill ends up with some people living on the streets, and others living in homes where their families are at risk.

Meaningful action means we stop pretending the only civil rights worth protecting are those of the mentally ill.

#10, the family was to some degree dysfunctional, by definition. I.e., the young man´s parents got divorced apparently when he was barely into his teens.

Often parents will try to put a happy face on divorce "(it was amicable, the kids will be fine, they´ll get over it") but we all know better. Divorce is devastating to children.

Of course not all children in dysfunctional families become murderers; but conversely, it is almost certainly true that all murderers come from dysfunctional families.

I think a "meaningful action" would be for obama to stop his class warfare hate speech. According to the Dem Think, 90% of the country is getting screwed by the other 10% and we need a much bigger government to get some fairness. Problem is, mentally unstable people take matters into their own hands, like we see these tragedies more and more.

The Dems constant incitement of rage and hatred is fueling a lot of this violence. I never heard Ronald Reagan even once tell people that they should be mad and seek revenge.

You have to remember that there are a lot of mentally ill people out there who vote for the liberal Democrats, so the liberal Democrats are not going to emphasize the fact that these murders were perpetrated by a mentally ill person.

On the other side of the coin, firearms have no vote, so you can safely bet that the liberal Democrats will attempt to lay as much blame as they can on guns.

What the Congress should be doing is passing effective measures, including waiving the medical privacy laws during background checks for prospective firearms purchasers, that would greatly help to keep mentally ill people from being able to purchase firearms, as the current ATF background procedures for firearms purchasers are clearly ineffective in that respect.

In the Connecticut case, even tightening up the ATF procedures might not have worked, as from first reports, if correct, it appears that the perpetrator´s mother had the guns that he used registered in her name, certainly an indication that she may have been a firearms straw purchaser who affectively bought guns for her mentally ill son, resulting in the loss of her life, and the lives of 26 other innocent people.

Firearms have long been easily available. Spree killings by young people are new. Blaming the tool used does not account for the phenomenon. The incredible pornographic violence of pop culture is the new factor here and is undoubtedly a major contributor to such horrible shootings. In movies, on TV, in music(rap) and, most of all, in violent video games the violence is omnipresent and graphically depicted. The latest killer, like the Columbine killers and others, including the Norway mass killer, was exposed to all of this, including the violent video games, some of the most popular of which are called "first person shooter" games.

Many elements go into these terrible crimes. Ignoring everything but the murder weapon itself is shallow and misleading. It mistakes the symptom for the disease. And it represents a denial of the existential peril of life and well as the propensity of human beings for premeditated evil. Liberal fantasy ideology has no room for any of this and insists upon blaming the weapons and those who disagree with their emotional urge to eliminate the instruments of violence.

Monstrous acts of wickedness like these child murders punch a hole in the imaginary life world of liberals which they are desperate to plug as quickly as possible. Having rejected the category of evil for the pseudo-explanations of superficial rationalism, liberals are unable to comprehend acts of pure evil and prefer to change the subject and avert their eyes. Championing more gun control and demonizing those who oppose them is a convenient and effective means of avoiding the many issues raised by these horrifying slaughters of the innocents.

Many of the factors that #33 brings out above are created by the very liberal Hollywood and New York entertainment industries who were huge contributers to Barack Obama and the liberal Democrats.

So look for the liberal Democrats to completely ignore things like violent movies, and computer games as they consider what course of action to take politically.

Ok great, what is "meaningful action"? Gun control? We all know that will only take guns away from people who want to defend themselves. Whackjobs and criminals will always be able to get guns.

Here is the truth. We live in a free society. With that comes responsibility. You cannot control all irresponsible behavior. Take guns away, people will use illegal arms. Or knives, or look up how to make a poison gas and throw it into a classroom, or a bomb in a suitcase. Or whatever.

As awful as it is, that is living in a free society. What is the alternative? Start locking up in a mental facility anyone you don´t like or looks at you funny. Arrest your 7 year old kid for saying "I am going to kill you" to a bullying classmate. Take your defensive weapons away. Create a federal police force to "investigate undesirables".

Which way do you want it folks, freedom with the associated horrors of dirtbags and psychos, or lose all your freedoms and be imprisoned in your own society?

I know which one this "president" wants.

I´ve said it before and I"ll say it again....every time gun owners make progress (the latest decision against Illinois in court), something like this happens...

It isn´t far from feasible that the anti-gunners have a ´stable´ of unstable people and every once in a while they arm them and trot them out to commit some carnage or another.

Just because you don´t think they are out to get you doesn´t mean they aren´t...

Just saying......

#6 - "The Chicago street corners are due to a subculture that glorifies violence."

The murderer is identified as a "goth"...like Columbine, like other "mass" incidents. Goth is as much a poisonous, violent subculture as gangstas...no, gangstas don´t attack school kids in classrooms.

#12, the guns were registered. The Democrats and some Republicans want to force a choice so you have to decide, are we going to be like Israel and Switzerland or like Britain and Japan? I guess being like Vermont is off the table. Please remember that if you like the ´no guns ever´ route, criminals, bad cops, very wealthy, politicians and friend of the court will always have their guns. It´s just that YOU will not have that option again. It´s a BIG step and you might want to read some recent global history before you apply the magical thinking.

Obama´s "Operation Fast & Furious" resulted in the murders of over three hundred people, twelve times the number of victims in the Sandy Hook shootings, and we still can´t get any answers from the (p)Resident as to WHY he did it.

Obama is going to allow the families to pray to him in person, as their savior, when he makes a speech there, announcing a temporary ban on gun sales.

After some time passes, someone needs to highlight the crime rates in Gun Free Zones.

Also, please don´t advocate for gov´t mental incarceration. DHS is already planning to deem all returning military with combat experience with mental problems that mean they can´t have a gun.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t.

After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I
