"Gun Ownership at All-Time High, Nation’s Murder Rate at Nearly All-Time Low… Hmmm?!? Has Someone Told Obama? Or is that why Obama has time to vacation and golf in the middle of his impassioned (created) campaign against gun violence??

If he took a break from insinuating that gun-rights supporters don’t care about children getting shot for nothing more than a few lessons with the local club pro, that would be callous. But he’s not. He’s taking a break from those insinuations for lessons with thousand-bucks-an-hour top pro instructor Butch Harmon. He’s not taking this gun-control thing lightly, guys. Not now, I mean. He took it pretty lightly for the past 10 years or so, especially during election years, but now he’s serious. Or he will be, once he finally gets the kinks out of his swing.
Rest assured, he’ll be back on the trail soon working hard on not solving the problem.
The President’s golfing weekend at The Floridian GC in Palm City, Fla., will include more than golf on a Tom Fazio course or an afternoon of ball beating at the Harmon School of Golf on campus. The Harmons, Butch and son Claude III, are flying in to work with President Obama, who inquired through an aide if they would be on property during his stay…
“He’s a left-handed player, I’ve seen film of his swing before,” said Harmon, who analyzed Obama’s swing when the President first took office. “It’ll be fun to get him down in the learning center, show him stuff in his golf game and see how he takes it to the course. He’s just like all of us that play golf. He wants to get better.”

Bush famously golfed in his down time, and was famously castigated for it, until 2003 when he stopped because he couldn’t justify an elite leisure pastime when Americans and their allies were suffering in Iraq. Well, we’re out of Iraq now; America’s suffering is over. Tee it up. Here’s The One this afternoon in Chicago, the current gun-control capital of the U.S. and the gun-violence capital of the U.S., calling for more gun control, naturally. But not just gun control; this clip captures him in a rare moment of genuine insight, not just pushing the talking points du jour.
Hmmm… and could that be because this is all a ruse for control not a fight for safety from gun violence? In fact: 4 People Shot Within 90 Minutes in Chicago After President Obama’s Departure… the city with probably the toughest gun laws in the United States.
President Barack Obama spoke about his new gun control initiatives during a quick visit to his hometown of Chicago Friday, but the violence in one of the most dangerous cities in the United States did not abate.
The Politico relates:
Four separate shootings took place in the span of 90 minutes Friday evening in Chicago, the first coming less than an hour after Air Force One departed O’Hare Airport after President Obama spoke on the culture of gun violence and economic decay that plagues many cities, including his hometown.
An hour earlier, Obama wrapped up a personal speech at Hyde Park Academy on the South Side, where he mourned the killing of Hadiya Pendleton, the teen who visited Washington for his inauguration just a week before she was gunned down not far from the school. “This is not just a gun issue. It’s also an issue of the kinds of communities that we’re building, and for that we all share a responsibility as citizens to fix it,” he said.
Obama had said little about Chicago’s murder problem — there were more than 500 in 2012 — before Friday, instead focusing on mass shootings in his post-Newtown gun control push. But at a high school just two miles away from his Chicago home, he acknowledged the depths of devastation that street violence generated in the city.
“Last year, there were 443 murders with a firearm in this city, and 65 of them were 18 and under. That’s the equivalent of a Newtown every four months,” he said. “That’s precisely why the overwhelming majority of Americans are asking for some common sense proposals to make it harder for criminals to get their hands on a gun.” [Emphasis added]
Chicago already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, but some legislators say looser gun laws in neighboring states cancel out their efforts.
According to the Chicago Tribune, 3 men and a woman were the victims of Friday night’s 90-minute crime wave. The woman died; the men did not.

The reality is that Gun Ownership is at an All-Time High, but the Nation’s Murder Rate at Nearly an All-Time Low… But what about not resting until every American that wants to work has a job? As Rush realized in his epiphany while watching the State of the Union… Obama will Never Be Held Accountable of Anything… He is the Eternal Campaigner… Says one thing while his team and handlers (the global puppet masters) do another… manipulating the uninformed while fundamentally transforming America using the Cloward-Piven Strategy and the Alinsky Tactics, just like when he was the Community Organizer… as most Americans sleep!
