Obama: Legal guns drive wedge between cops and communities

Legal ownership of weapons is creating tensions between police officers and communities, President Obama said to buttress his call for tighter gun laws. "Part of what's creating tensions between communities and the police is the fact that police are having a really difficult time in communities where they know guns are everywhere," Obama said during a NATO press conference in Warsaw, Poland. "They have a right to come home, and now they have very little margin for error in terms of making decisions. So if you care about the safety of our police officers, then you can't set aside the gun issue and pretend that that's irrelevant."

Actually, Mr. President, the mere presence of firearms isn't the issue at all. It's the active presence of a criminal sub-culture with a substantial support base, and the lies told and re-told... "...hands up, don't shoot..." being one example. If it's wrong to hold all responsible for the actions of a few, then it's wrong to hold all police and gun owners responsible for the actions of a few as well. Of course there will be incidents of wrongdoing among police and other government officials { cough... Hillary.... cough }, but let's hold those individuals responsible for their misdeeds. You seem to not only want to spread the wealth around, but the blame as well: now that's true socialism.

It's true that an armed citizenry can sometimes pose a threat to the machinery of the state.

When this is true, there's something wrong with the machinery of the state, not with the armed populace.

Obama Bin Laden's policies are coming to fruition. Attacking cops at every possible incident through the DOJ, jail breaking 10's of thousands of convicted felons, second class jobs created, terrorists release from Gitmo, and Hillary allowed to run free and run for President. That is just a start.

The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits. —PLUTARCH
