Just One Life...

...why stop there?

"If there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try," said Obama, joined at the White House by four children who wrote to the president following the Newtown, Conn., tragedy. 

Typical.  Why stop there.  By making driving vehicles illegal, it would save an estimated 45,000 lives a year.  So that is more than one.  I'm just sayin'...

Okay, that may be a little extreme.  However, by passing a law establishing a national 5 mph speed limit...we can still have our cars and save an estimated 45,000 lives a year.  Does anyone doubt that nation wide, deaths as a result of vehicle accidents would go down?  If there's even one life that can be saved - don't we have an obligation Mr. President?  He's so smart.  

On the other hand, but limiting magazine capacity to 10 rounds, as stated in the proposal, and grandfathering in all pre-Obama magazines - you will save exactly zero lives.  FBI statistics show that in most cases, it takes less than 10 hits to kill somebody.*  Then again, if you missed with all 10, it would take less than a second to exchange magazines...or have two guns.   So, I'm not so sure we have the obligation.  

*I completely made up that statistic, but the President makes up all his crap too!

The greatest killer of AMERICANS is CIGARETTES. Make it a felony to possess cigarettes or to smoke them... I wonder how President Obama would feel about that. After all, if we even save one smoker from himself, it will have been worth it.

The Commander-in-Chief would need to stock up on nicotine gum since he's a four pack a day guy.

Second hand smoke is known to hurt children. After all, it's all about the children.

It feels so rewarding to have a self-styled "law professor" leading the nation. He's always right on top of things.
