Ed Meilus: Exploiting children

April 20, 2013 

Exploiting children

Shame on President Obama! When will Obama and the gun control advocates in the Senate stop exploiting tragedies for political gain? My heart bleeds for the innocent children killed by any type of violence. However, I think Obama and Harry Reid should be ashamed for using pictures of dead children to push “common sense” legislation.

When did “common sense” become trampling on our constitutional rights? Is Obama saying our forefathers who created the Constitution had no common sense? The answer to prevent more violence is simple. Enforce current laws and address mental health issues instead of making criminals out of law-abiding citizens.
