President Obama, just entering into his third term indicated in a press conference earlier today that he would do everything in his power to ban the products that have injured and killed ham sandwich consumers, and that he would punish the perpetrators of such reprehensible food.
As beneficent as it sounds to create showcases of collective “healing,” such public displays–complete with remarks by politicians and agendas formulated by various advocacy groups–find their true purpose in chronically opening old wounds to revive political issues. In the cases of Aurora, Newton, and Columbine, the issue is gun control.
The slaughter of innocents in Newton, Connecticut has served to illustrate the absolute necessity of having armed personnel on all school campuses. The Aurora killings have exposed the absurdity behind “gun free zones” in commercial businesses.
