As he always does in tragic situations such as this, the president never lets a crisis go to waste. Less than 24 hours after lecturing us at our thanksgiving dinners that the “Syrian refugees” were no different than the Pilgrims, he does not give comfort and solace to the family and friends of the hero dead officer who selflessly ran toward danger to confront evil, but he again blames what he refers to as Swasey to the weapons of war. This domestic terrorist would have killed with whatever he could because that was his mission. It is not the gun that will face trial by jury; it is Robert Lewis Dear, the arrested perp, who, in our judicial system is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The president, however, is on a mission to destroy the 2nd Amendment before January 20, 2017, again uses the tragedy to vilify the gun, an inanimate object that can do nothing without a real person loading, aiming and pulling the trigger to shoot the target chosen by the person, not the target chosen by the gun, which has neither brain or free will.
We pray for officer Swasey and all the victims dead and wounded. We also pray for the United States of America, that we may survive as a Constitutional Republic for the next, perilous fourteen months.
