Connecticut Post, by President Barack Obama

As a society, our first task must be to care for our children -- to shield them from harm and give them the tools they need not only to pursue their dreams, but to help build this country. That is how we will be judged. And in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, it´s clear we have a long way to go. That´s why, last month, I asked Vice President Biden to lead an effort to come up with concrete steps we can take right now to keep our kids safe, help prevent mass shootings,

Comments:
Oh puhleeze! 0bama on high gear campaign mode. The last sentence is hilarious: "Barack Obama is president of the United States." Stunning.

Hey nitwit:
1) The previous assault weapons ban was shown to have zero effect on crime rates.
2) Violent crime rates in the US have halved over the last 20 years coinciding with nationwide easing of gun restrictions and concealed carry rights.

Stop the distractions, and focus on the economy.

Signed,
Joe America

We do have a responsibility to our children, and prime among them is to hand off a functioning republic with manageable finances.

FTA: keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from doing harm.

If you recognize that those doing harm are law-breakers, you recognize that no law is going to stop the killing.

Barky is not interested in protecting your kids. If he was his proposals would be completely different, as: Guarding your children as his already are. Locking up lunatics. Making MHP´s more responsible for reporting lunatics. (Doctors have the authority and responsibility to take away your driving privileges. There is a parallel here) Making law enforcement (like sheriff Dupnik the Dipstick in tucson) responsible for enforcing existing laws. Dismantle the gun-running holder DoJ. What he is interested in is disarming the general population, like his (and valjar´s) mentor and hero, chairman mao.

The first task of a society is not to protect its children. It is to protect itself from all enemies foreign and domestic. Barack Obama is an enemy of American society. He is a far greater danger to America and America´s children than the rare, isolated spree killer. Barack Obama does not respect or like America. He has promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America."

If we are going to begin universal background checks on gun buyers, it is certainly time -past time- to do a background check on the individual calling himself Barack Obama. It is simply amazing that a man about whom Americans know practically nothing that has been documented continues to occupy the presidency of the United States. If the Republic survives, as it probably will, future historians will look back, scratch their heads, and devote their careers to attempting to answer the question of how such a thing could have happened. Did the American people simply go mad for a period of 8 years? How could they have done such a thing to themselves? Didn´t they realize that the presidency is too important to entrust to a mysterious stranger who doesn´t share American values? Where was the watchdog press, the famous Fourth Estate, in the nation´s hour of need?

About the children, huh....

Young as they are, those with baby brothers and sisters at home, would be absolutely traumatized to know that as a senator Obama championed partial birth abortion, the brutal slaughter of babies who make it through abortion.

“President Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act four times, horrifyingly voting against protecting babies who survived abortion and voting in favor of leaving them to die."

So murdering children through abortions is ok, according to the empty suit.

Why didn´t he save taxpayers some money and just ask Malia what she thought about Sandy Hook? /s Incompetents always act this way when their fecklessness is on parade - they show great concern for things that they have no power over to pretend that they are vital. Meanwhile, Iran continues its nuclear quest, virtually unabated; China steals our military know-how and is building a large salt water navy; our economy remains stagnant; unemployment leaves a demoralized and frightened citizenry and the very children he met with yesterday are being robbed of their futures.

Yep. It is past time.
The killer of school-age children MUST be abolished.
It is time to ban school buses, and ban them NOW.
We cannot sit idly by and watch group after group slaughtered by this device which has no conscience.

As to senseless slaughter: just how many individuals have been killed in Chicago since Zero took office? And what kind of gun laws does Chicago have?

What a monstrous perversion we have here. The nation is mobilized for the purpose of what?

Protecting the federal government, that´s what!

Go read your Declaration of Independence.

Armed guards will have to search every domicile and place of work, in order to end this terrible scourge!

Then the feddies will be safe forever.

The arrogance and ignorance of 0bama is appalling. He sends his girls to an expensive private school that has several armed guards with real guns and real bullets. 0bama just changed the law for him to have secret service protection for the rest of his life. Before he changed this law, he and Mooch would only have security for ten years after out of office. And you know these secret service all have real guns with real bullets. Yet 0bama is such a hypocrite that he wants NO guns in the schools of we commoners. No, we should not have guns, just 0bama and his girls. What is wrong with these horrid and wretched people?

State to send voter registration

Heading off a lawsuit over compliance with a federal voting rights law, California officials have agreed to help millions of state residents register to vote. Under a deal announced Monday by several voting-rights groups, the state will send voter registration cards to nearly 3.8 million Californians who have applied for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The move will ensure that many residents can complete or update their registration in time for the June 3 primary election, representatives of the groups said, and bring the state into compliance with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

Union organizers are showing up at Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections of an open-shop business that has been targeted by the country’s second-largest union. Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years. The company is currently suing SEIU for $9 million, alleging that the union has repeatedly slandered it. But on three recent occasions, SEIU representatives accompanied federal safety inspectors to examine PJS cleaning sites, says Evelyn Meza, the human-resources manager for PJS. The inspections resulted in fines. Such an organized-labor presence on OSHA

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim."

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the
