Obama’s Shameful Pivot to Gun Control After Orlando

Prayers and platitudes are insufficient. The American public is beseeching us to act on common sense, sensible gun violence prevention measures, and we must heed that call.” There was a “public health crisis” at a club in Orlando that killed 50 people? Well, that’s one way of putting it. Possible alternate headline: “Progressive U.S. senator unwittingly declares radical Islam a ‘public health crisis.’” ***** P.S.
