"if just one life can be saved ..." I hope my fellow bloggers are intelligent enough to see the hypocrisy in the verse above...So who is the one that determines that life? Who is the one that predicts anyone's life of being saved? Why is it that they always associate lives being saved with more burdensome rules and regulations. Maybe our (obamanation) should read out of the bible because it is God that determines when someone dies not humans. The truth is that the direction that this government is taking will in the long run cause many more deaths than it will save. Tyranny. And another thing it is impossible to determine how many lives are saved or not by a given government rule. Give us more freedoms not less.

This is what the Wall Street Journal's Daniel Henninger had to say about the "just one life" reference:

"After the Newtown killings in December, President Obama channeled a national gun-control law through Joe Biden. There was no surprise that he would do so. "If there's just one life that can be saved," Mr. Obama said Monday in Minnesota, using standard Washington risk-benefit analysis, "then we have an obligation to try it."

325 million plus in this country and he is going to pass a law that will save one life as if he even knew which life that would be which he does not. But yet it's perfectly fine to strip away the gun rights of the 325 million for that one life. How many lives will be lost because of one's ability to defend's oneself??? One life saved that makes the headlines and ten lives lost that don't. It's an agenda that he is promoting and using an artificial and pretentious argument of claiming to save one life. When will this shallow form of thinking stop. How long will this duping of the low information voter go on to serve the agenda of the progressives...

Why has he not made a stronger effort to save just one life in chicago.....

over the last year.....

over 10 times the number of kids and young adults have been killed in chicago....

but, he has mostly ignored those killings....

because they couldn't be used to stir up emotions for his purpose....

obama is a liar and manipulator.....truly a low life animal.....

In his pursuit of overarching gun control legislation in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre, President Barack Obama has been dogged. He's been relentless. He's been demagogic, too, whether flanking himself with schoolchildren (the implication being that his political opponents don't care about dead kids) or suggesting that if just one life can be saved by his legislation, we ought to buy into it wholeheartedly (a proposition that would justify almost any sort of government overreach).

But on Wednesday, President Obama took his gun control push a step further: He admitted that only the Constitution stands between him and...
