Obama Places Children in the Political Cross-Hairs

Obama And Biden Unveil Proposal To Decrease Gun Violence In U.S.


One cannot be more dishonorable than the person who uses children as weapons to create political propaganda for one’s sordid self-gain. But when talking about Barack Obama and Democrats, or progressives in general, using children as weapons to gain public popularity in order to destroy constitutional rights, is not unfounded. In fact, it’s the progressive statist way.

Rather than mourn the 20 Newtown children and their teachers, Obama and Washington leaders understand children are the best prop against laws leftists want abolished. Children are after all adorable, and their cute little faces seen reading pleading letters to the president, begging him to outlaw guns so schools never again experience the horrors of Newtown’s Sandy Hook School, is a great way to push party-line agendas and pull the heartstrings of Americans, whom progressives hope to turn against their Second Amendment rights protecting Americans from tyrannical government.

Obama’s anti-gun speech used children for political props in order to pass 23 Executive Orders against guns. What more proof do we need that Obama will stop at nothing, including placing children in the cross-hairs of political misinformation to enact his plans for America, than his actions this week?


 The heart-string tugging began with words Vice President Biden used against guns:

It’s been 33 days since the nation’s heart was broken by the horrific, senseless violence that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School—20—20 beautiful first-graders gunned down in a place that’s supposed to be their second sanctuary.  Six members of the staff killed trying to save those children.  It’s literally been hard for the nation to comprehend, hard for the nation to fathom.


Yes, it’s true: It’s hard for any law-abiding,  loving person to fathom what a psycho did to those children and their teachers. But Adam Lanza does not speak for gun owners or Americans, he was psychotic, he was a monster,  he speaks for evil, not law-abiding gun owners.

The truth doesn’t matter to progressives who want the people and their children to see guns as the threat and cause of all violence in America.

Progressives hate the fact that in the hands of law-abiding citizens, guns can stop tyrants and violent criminals coddled by leftists, who believe violent people should be rehabilitated among us while they murder us. And government should control the people. The only way for that to happen is ban guns.


But, instead of telling the truth, Obama used children to disarm guns:

These are our kids [speaking here today in letters to me].  This is what they’re thinking about.  And so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them, and shield them from harm, and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that they’re capable of doing — not just to pursue their own dreams, but to help build this country.  This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe.  This is how we will be judged.  And their voices should compel us to change.


How many children understand politics and legislation? How many children know why the Second Amendment was written? Have the obviously left-wing parents of those children, used as props by Obama the other day, explained the facts to their children, or did those parents do what Obama did: Use their children to invoke anti-gun legislation?  The answer is obvious, because no parent who holds the Constitution with regard, and understands the rights it upholds, would ever let their child be used as a weapon against the Second Amendment. But that is what those parents allowed Obama to do to their children.

Obama cleverly concealed his true plan against guns and the Second Amendment:

Let me be absolutely clear.  Like most Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. I respect our strong tradition of gun ownership and the rights of hunters and sportsmen.  There are millions of responsible, law-abiding gun owners in America who cherish their right to bear arms for hunting, or sport, or protection, or collection. I also believe most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale.  I believe most of them agree that if America worked harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown.  That’s what these reforms are designed to do.  They’re common-sense measures.  They have the support of the majority of the American people.


How many believe Obama supports the right to bear arms?  If so, why the constant mention of hunting and sports, but not  facts: The Second Amendment protects the citizens against government tyranny.

Obama’s claims were: The Second Amendment is only about sports, hunting and not about protecting yourselves from government tyrants. Obama did not dare tell those children the Second Amendment protects them from government stealing Constitutional rights.

This gun-grab legislation ceremony was also Obama’s attempt to brainwash children into hating guns and gun-owners: Make children believe guns are evil and if outlawed, violence against children and grownups will never again happen in America.

Those children should visit Obama’s Chicago where violent thugs murder daily with guns leftists wont take from thugs.

After Obama finished his anti-gun rant, elementary school age children read letters to the president and us people, pleading for gun bans.


anti-gun letter to obama


There was an eight year-old from Maryland named Grant who read: “[T]here should be some changes in the law with guns.  It’s a free country, but I recommend there needs be a limit with guns.” Grant further declared:

Please don’t let people own machine guns or other powerful guns like that. I think there should be a good reason to get a gun. There should be a limit about how many guns a person can own.


What eight year-old uses such grown-up language as “I recommend,” and “there needs to be a limit,” and  “Good reason to get a gun?” Only the parent could have written that letter, because children do not speak with that rhetoric.


There were more letters: A child named Julia said:

I know laws must be passed by Congress, but I beg you [Mr. President] to try very hard to make guns not allowed.



Julia letter to Obama


Again, these children have no idea why our Founders passed the Second Amendment, because they obviously have parents who are  anti-gun and do not want their children to understand that tyrannical governments destroy people, including children, if  people do not have the power to protect themselves from tyrants.

But it is guns that are being called tyrants, not leaders trying to steal people’s rights. It is guns that are made to be seen as the cause of violence, rather than mentally disabled and psychotic people who use guns,  or other weapons, to murder people.

The truth was never mentioned nor explained to the children Obama used for his anti-American progressive legislation.  Those innocent children were thrown into the political cross-hairs and used as weapons against America’s rights to bear arms.

  1. So true.

    What? No one saying you are disrespecting dead children?

    So many ignorant people that can not see through the propaganda.

  2. “using children as weapons to gain public popularity in order to destroy constitutional rights, is not unfounded. In fact, it’s the progressive statist way.”

    I’m sure this is something you are equally outraged by when you see pro-life protesters using images of aborted fetuses.
