What is wrong here? The residents of the small town of Roseburg are demonstrating against the Presidents visit in consolation regarding the loss of 
 life at a  local school. His remarks about gun control were not about gun control even if “Faux news” said so. The Dupublican field of candidates have leapt onto the Fox wagon with their opinions even though they heard what he said for themselves: 
On the day of the Umpqua shooting, Obama, visibly frustrated, appeared in the White House press room.
“There’s been another mass shooting in America – this time, in a community college in Oregon,” he said. “That means there are more American families – moms, dads, children – whose lives have been changed forever.”
Obama urged Americans to tighten gun laws, but didn’t sound hopeful.
“What’s become routine … is the response of those who oppose any kind of common-sense gun legislation,” he said. “Right now, I can imagine the press releases being cranked out: We need more guns, they’ll argue. Fewer gun-safety laws. Does anybody really believe that?”
There is no mention of taking guns away from anyone! Tighten gun laws, what does this mean? It means to me that we need to use ways to prevent these types of murders from occurring by using background checks which single out the mentally vulnerable or anyone who could later become shooters as we have seen in the past. Taking away guns is not the same as preventing these mentally delicate or criminally  inclined  folks from obtaining or owning firearms. We spent billions of dollars and unvalued human capital in a search for WMD’s but we can’t spend another dollar or minute in deterring or preventing people who by their mental state should not own firearms. It is unfortunate that the United States has made little progress is some areas but great strides in others yet cannot agree that there needs to be a better way to keep a potential killer from obtaining  WMD’s. The worst part of the Anti Obama issue is the covert and overt Racism involved. This is the modern day American that is unfortunately firmly rooted in the past based on one issue and Racism.
