Ron Hart | Gun control: Dems never waste a good tragedy

"Arms in the hands of the citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of the country, overthrow of tyranny or private self-defense." – John Adams, founding father

Congratulations to Barack Obama on being named the Gun and Ammunition Salesman of the Year by Smith and Wesson! Maybe he will win a free trip to Hawaii and save us taxpayers $3.6 million.

With the help of a compliant press and of the entertainment business, which makes the violent video games and movies that I think play the biggest role in mass shootings, Obama seized on the Sandy Hook shooting rampage to call for more gun control. There are two hypocrisies here: First, Obama, Hollywood and the mainstream press are all protected by gun-toting security. They are safe precisely because their guards have guns. Second, if more laws and gun control really worked, Obama could just outlaw all mass shootings.

You know Obama is serious about the issue because he gave it to his trusted deputy, Joe "Crest Strips" Biden. The Barney Fife-like Biden used his one bullet with his 2010’s "summer of recovery" cold case.

Obama aligns himself with other famous world leaders who forced gun bans and controls on their people as early as they could: Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Fidel Castro, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Kim Jung-Il, Moammar Gadhafi and Hugo Chavez. No leader can have absolute power until he is the only one armed.
