Dear Mr. Obama

It has been a few years since I took this oath:

“I, XXXXXXXXXX, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United Statesagainst all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officersappointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

Now it has been a few years but I still feel strongly about that oath. I will defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic. I do bear allegience to the same. BUT, as I was instructed, I WILL NOT FOLLOW UNLAWFUL ORDERS FROM THE PRESIDENT.  You, sir have overstepped the bounds of your office. You, sir have disgraced the Constitution and The United States of America.

You, sir have failed to act, when you should have, and you act hastily when you should look at the big picture. You speak well when a rehearsed speach is needed. You lie to the American people on numerous occasions.  Your public record defies you now. Your past is catching up rapidly. You speak eloquently but you blush when you speak on your gun control agenda. You are using the deaths of kids by a madman, leaving out his first victim purposely, to further your agenda. 

Look at the crime and gun stats in your home town Mr. Obama. Gun control is NOT WORKING THERE.

When will you see the reality that more legislation against lawful gun owners doesn’t stop the law breakers?  Is it really that difficult? 

The Benghazi thing and the Fast and Furious thing are going to haunt you Mr. Obama. Please be a man and step up. Stop hiding behind your so called executive priveledges. I have to be responsible for my actions and so do you.

Of course we could sit down over a beer as you did in the beginning of your presidency.  But that would require that you actually listen to one of your constituants.

  1. Though I realize your focus was on Obama in this article, mentioning the first victim of the Newtown murderer doesn’t exactly bolster a case against gun control.

    She was a “prepper” who didn’t have safe storage for her guns at home, and she knew her boy was impaired. Instead of making sure he got the health care he needed, she took him to the gun range for practice (!) – and then told him he was going to be kicked out of the house.

    The proposed changes in the law might have helped both these people, as well as possibly preventing the deaths of the kids.

    • Valid points, but does not make her less of a victim. I am not opposed to sensible regulations, but when laws already exist but are not enforced, where does the blame lie? The gun is a machine operated by a human. Did she put herself in harms way? Yes, but that only makes her a victim of her own mistakes.
      Sensible to me means looking at all sides, findind the key areas, where the laws aren’t working, then find ways to make them work.
