Despite the critics, and 1 Faux News pundit who viciously & stupidly called it "child abuse," President Obama made the choice during his speech on gun control yesterday, to include the voices of children,Â 8-year-old Grant Fritz of Maryland; 10-year-old Taejah Goode of Georgia; 11-year-old Julia Stokes of Washington D.C.; and 8-year-old Hinna Zeejah. It's apparent from the photo below, that these kids' parents also backed the President. And, as apparent, from one child's letter below, "NO GUNS, NO GUNS, NO GUNS!" That was from the 8 y/o, & I find it totally baffling that a child this young gets the message, and adults 5x her age don't!
Just as mind-boggling is the proliferation of ugly rhetoric, veiled threats, offensive ads (that NRA 1 is a kicker!), inane references to the 2nd Amendment, misplaced agendas, but most importantly, the failure of lawmakers (on both sides) to pass safer gun restrictions because they're more worried about re-election in 2014, too cowardly to stand up to do what's morally & ethically right for our country~SHAME on them & shame on the idiot Republican who spent over $600 for a friggin' water faucet!
In any event, what a terric experience for thes kids~it's not every day you get a hug from the Prez! Link below for the other kids' letters...
