Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (NC-2) let the boy-king have it with both barrels:
“President Obama is once again exploiting a tragedy for political gain and eroding our constitutional rights for the sake of an extreme liberal agenda. We need to have a serious discussion on how we can prevent troubled individuals from carrying out their insane intentions. But attacking our legal rights and liberties through abusive executive orders destroys the very principles that have protected our citizens from oppressive government power for over 236 years.”
Of course he wants “oppressive government power.”
In Obama’s way of thinking, citizens are too stupid to work for their own best interests and must be wards of the state, with every part of their lives guided and controlled like cattle inexorably guided into chutes. When you come from that mindset—that people other than you are stupid—then of course the thought of them being armed with the sort of weapons the Founders intended us to have must be terrifying. My God… the proles could resist our mandates with guns!
It is the mindset that “we know what is best for you.” Obama holds himself as being a superior being, above the people. Sadly, anyone who has been in Washington more than a decade seems to succumb to this intoxicating, self-important view.
Ellmers on the other hand, takes the view that she and other politicians are of the people, as the Founders intended.
It’s too bad we don’t have 10-year service limits on assault politicians.
