    Obama: NRA Members Could Use 'Self-Reflection'

    President Barack Obama carefully avoided overtly criticizing the nation's largest pro-gun lobbying group, the National Rifle Association, on Wednesday, saying only that he hopes the group's members "will do some self-reflection" following the massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last Friday. The president made the comments at a press conference announcing a joint task force led by Vice President Joe Biden to consider ways to reduce gun violence.
    "The NRA is an organization that has members who are mothers and fathers, and I would expect that they've been impacted by this as well," Obama said. "And hopefully they'll do some self-reflection." He then pivoted to stress that no single gun law can "solve all these problems."
    The president's comments about the NRA were subdued compared to those of a number of prominent lawmakers, including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and conservative Democrat Rep. John Yarmuth (Ky.), who have decried the powerful lobbying group's influence on members of Congress.
    The NRA "has spent untold millions of dollars instilling fear in our citizens and our politicians," Yarmuth said at a news conference Monday, adding that the NRA, "wants us to believe that the best protection against the irresponsible and lethal use of guns is for everyone to be armed."
    By opting not to address the NRA's influence on gun policy in more strident terms, Obama signaled that he is still optimistic about bringing the group to the table, something the administration has had trouble doing in the past.
    For its part, the NRA has announced it will hold a press conference Friday to announce plans for "meaningful contributions" the group is willing to make to prevent mass shootings from happening in the future. It remains to be seen what those contributions might be, but there are indications that it believes the shooting was a mental health issue as much as it was a gun issue

    President Barack Obama carefully avoided overtly criticizing the nation's largest pro-abortion lobbying group, the National Organization for Women, on Wednesday, saying only that he hopes the group's members "will do some self-reflection" following the massacre of over 40,000,000 children in America. The president made the comments at a press conference announcing a joint task force led by Vice President Joe Biden to consider ways to reduce abortion.
    "NOW is an organization that has members who are mothers, and I would expect that they've been impacted by this as well," Obama said. "And hopefully they'll do some self-reflection." He then pivoted to stress that no single anti-abortion law can "solve all these problems."


    This is what I was hoping to read from the President….
    Total Depravity
    Unconditional Election
    Limited Atonement
    Irresistible Grace
    Perseverance of the Saints

    Bingo!! If you've been alive for 6 years and are killed by a gun he cares, if you have been born for a few minutes or hours he's all for leaving you to die.

    Unfortunately, nothing is ever done because of the politicians and douche bag partisans that make up both parties.

    Ummmm...has anyone reported that Adam Lanza was a member of the NRA? If they have i have not seen it. But hey Hell, as long as we can kill innocent kids by drones as long as it's authorized by the POTUS, why worry that the same POTUS paintbrushes an entire organization and it's law abiding members.

    I guess he went from being a lawyer to a doctor, he's really living up to that hypocritic oath

    no, the NRA has also been very outspoken regarding the desire to help possible reform. this happens after every disaster, all the libs go on tv and blame the conservatives. come to find out, most of the shooters are not right wingers.
