Why The President's Gun Comments Are Brave

I think it is incredibly brave that The President commits himself to confront the NRA. Such a nutty bunch of well-armed people pose a credible threat. 

He just went in front of microphones and re-committed to examining gun laws and possibilities of making changes that might keep us all a little more safe from wild harvests of pain and confusion like Friday's mayhem in Connecticut. 

Let's remember that so far all that Mr. Obama has proposed are a discussion and a committee. 

NOT corralling all your guns. 

Not demanding background checks. 

Not ending sales of weapons and ammunition at gun shows. 

Not even mandatory background checks for ALL firearm purchases in the U.S.A. 

Gun owners define reactionary behavior. 

Take five or ten minutes in the next week and read some of the posts from people and groups that disagree with the idea of examining gun laws and possibly limiting public access to weapons.

We all need to calm down and remember the dead kids here, the aching parents and the fact that we all might be here next year. 

Do we really want to have another year like this last one? 

BTW All of these posts came before the Newtown shootings last week. 

4) "Obama hints at handgun restrictions"

3) "Take a look at Obama's Anti-Gun history, Then imagine what the future will be like with him in charge of your guns."

2) NRA Fact Sheet : "Why Obama Will Take Your Guns"

1) A top official with the National Rifle Association said Friday that President Obama will move to "destroy" gun rights and "erase" the Second Amendment if he is re-elected in November.
