On the suites that command the slaughter of last Friday, president Barack Obama is too, too much. Too shy, too soft and perhaps far too calculating. Rather than hold back the tears, he should meditate and then adopt the measures recommended by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who took the height required by such tragedy.
Sunday night at the ceremony dedicated to the victims, Obama recited the words very similar to those formulated in the evening of the killings, either by the words of sensitivity of good quality, but not synonymous with a political commitment. Political action likely to block the road at work undermining ethical and very political as direct sellers, the lobbyists, the armaments industry lead from moons. And say…
And say that he declined his speech at the end of a day during which the words stupidity and violence, or even those of the call to the blood, were hammered by elected representatives or officials. Side Republican, some have once more hammered that if school staff had been armed, the massacre would have been avoided. Worse, the president of Guns Owners of America went up to declare, hold on tight, the elected representatives of this State have blood on their hands, because they voted against the presence of weapons in schools. While in Michigan, the vote was positive.
And say that, in the wake of the massacre carried out in an Arizona Mall in 2011, the federal Ministry of Justice had designed a series of measures having as common denominator the restriction of arms trade before giving to Obama. And what did this last? Despite the slaughter of Aurora, Colorado, last summer, he left this document buried in cartons of history because he did not want to alienate those voters who are fierce supporters of the article 2 of the Constitution stipulating the “right of the people to have and bear arms.” And more specifically, the hinges of the Ohio and Pennsylvania State voters. Interestingly, 96% of the amounts awarded by the National Rifle Association during the last poll went to the Republican party.
And say that it was not until the presentation of the Mayor of New York to learn a staggering fact: it’s been six years the agency whose mandate is to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations relating to weapons is without… boss! Headless! It took it a mayor who calls for banning assault weapons, to examine the past of potential buyers to eliminate justice resumed psychiatric cases, etc. It was not until the public from Bloomberg output that the veil is lifted on a justice abjection. What is it? Unlike all other economic activities, the armaments industry enjoys total impunity allocated by the politicians. But yet? It is impossible to continue the merchants of death. That is how, on the front of the rifles and revolvers, the American psyche verges on madness.
Finally, it took to hear the phrases of Mr. Bloomberg to learn that arms trafficking (e.g., the sale ads) is not considered a crime. And say that after they go sing Amazing Grace.
