Hillary, Obama Take to Twitter on Gun Violence Awareness Day

Former president Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took to Twitter Friday to say a few words about “National Gun Violence Awareness Day,” an annual celebration that through misinformation attempts to convince the public that the optimal way to stop violent men from acting violently is to disarm responsible citizens.

“This National Gun Violence Awareness Day, show your commitment to keeping our kids safe from gun violence,” wrote Obama. “Then, for everyone we’ve lost, take action to change our leadership and our laws until they reflect that commitment – no matter how long it takes.”

Likewise, Hillary mentioned the children, suggesting that we need to do more to keep them safe.

“Too many American children will never have the opportunity to realize their dreams because their lives were cut short by a bullet,” said Hillary. “Our kids deserve to live free from the threat of gun violence”

Both Obama and Hillary are right in the sense that we need to do more to protect kids. But they’re wrong if they believe that we make kids safer by taking guns out of schools. In recent months there have been at least three instances where armed resources officers foiled would-be school killers.

One in Lee County, Illinois; one in Great Mills, Maryland; and one in Ocala, Florida. Unlike the situation in Parkland, Florida, where the on-duty resource officer failed to take action when the bullets started flying, Resource Officer Mark Dallas, Resource Officer Blaine Gaskill, and Resource Officer Jim Long put their lives on the line, confronted the gunman and saved lives.

In the video above, you can see Resource Officer Mark Dallas being honored for stopping the shooter in Lee County. Unlike Hillary and Obama, he avoids vague platitudes and instead offers sage advice to the politicians currently in office as to how to actually keep children safe.

“I’m honored and humbled by those who have referred to me as a hero, but I respectfully refuse that label and I much prefer dad,” said Officer Dallas.

“You [politicans] have the power to be heroes of our children when you support the training and placement of resource officers in our schools,” he continued.

If we’re serious about keeping children safe, then we need to listen to Officer Dallas.  Not the lip service being paid to the anti-gun lobby from a has-been and a wannabe.

    A has been and a never was. Who cares what either says? America is waking up to the booming economy and the latest jobs reports, showing more jobs than people looking for work, as well as enjoying the tax break or the trickle down effect of the tax breaks. Trump in 2020! Let’s keep America on the right track!

    • A Pistol Packin' Buddhist June 10, 2018, 3:30 pm

      Hey up!
      For starters you must make over $100k/yr! I didn’t get any tax break! NO ONE that makes under $100k did! & trickle-down economics didn’t work any better w/reagan than it will now! Pres. chump is nothing but a racist, a womanizer, a bigot, a liar & a thieving pig! & you people still are putting trust in him & you are respecting that? REALLY??? I can’t believe anyone would believe anything that person said! We do not elect our president anymore! Our vote doesn’t count anymore, My vote won that election; but, he won! He’s an idiot on his so called tv shows & it shows his true character! But, then I don’t care for or believe anyone that is a politician or makes more than the “AVERAGE” American! (Basically anything over $100k!)
      If we do not get our snit together as a country, we are being invaded as we speak & no one’s paying attention because of it! You are more concerned w/guns; well, the gun isn’t doing the shootings! When it can go off by itself & w/no outside influence, then I’ll start looking at the gun! ((now also, we, (the avg. citizen), don’t need fully auto guns!)) It’s the mind that’s behind it! Now, who’s doing them? Now, why! Because they are the one’s pushed there! By the one’s that are the loudest to whine & not see the true reasonings behind them! These people make fun of, chastise, BULLYING & don’t want them, (the loners doing the shootings), in their groups! How would you feel not being wanted, pushed away & constantly being bullied? I’m not saying that all like this will go out to murder others, (I used to be one of these people, but I’m educated from both books & in life’s preciousness from a young age! & I was reared up w/guns sitting all over the place & w/the respect that is due them was beaten into me!), So, education to stop the bullying & BS that kids do & to educate on how life is precious & about guns & death; these would help to curb this phenomenon in America today. Not taking away all the guns in the world will have the same effect as these teachings. (even if all the guns were taken from us, anyone wanting to get one… will) We do not teach these things to our kids anymore! If the parents don’t, then who will???
      But, this president is an idiot! You will see this in time, & he’ll get just what he deserves! He will never have my support on anything! He’s lied on everything that he’s done so why start believing in anything he’s said?! Everything he does say, then he does the opposite! How can anyone believe anyone that lies to them constantly? & Really??? YOU WANT THIS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY? I feel sorry for you all! he will end up costing this country’s middle class! You rich fu@ks do not care one way or the other, you can afford anything! & Us at the bottom, will be in even worse shape than ever!
      There! It’s been said!
      Thank you for your time & patience w/an old fart!
      A Pistol Packin’ Buddhist (I may be Buddhist, but that doesn’t mean that I need to allow innocent humans to being victimized by anyone w/or w/o a gun! & I only use force when it is necessary; ONLY then & ONLY what is needed to stop it! No more, No less!!)

  • Edward Rambo June 8, 2018, 11:55 pm

    Wow, the Criminal, and the Illegal speak out about guns, guns aren’t the problem the people that use them in anger are, and the kids in these wide open Gun Free Zone Schools are the ones that pay the price, you need to protect our schools the same way you protect the Courts and other Government buildings. It only took a couple of shootings at court for them to slap up metal detectors and increase security at all Government buildings, but they let these sick and crazy kids shoot up dozens of schools just so they can push off more gun control on millions of hunters and shooters that have done absolutely nothing wrong that’s the DemoCrap and Anti-Gun A-holes way, punish the masses for the crimes of the few. There is nothing that the DemoCraps won’t do to take our Rights away from us, but the first thing they have to do is disarm us so we can’t fight back that was the whole reason for our 2nd. amendment so our government couldn’t just turn around and rule us like the Communists would, and DemoCraps are no better than low life Commies.. Want to see what American Communism is like just go spend so time in CommieFornia, they are taking away your Rights and your freedoms by the day..

  • elgavilansegoviano June 8, 2018, 8:42 pm

    ………Imitation is the highest form of Flattery!!,…..but apart from that, this two Idiots, think they are going to some how scratch the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution, with their Anti American Agenda Tweets!!,….hahahahaha!!,…

  • Leighton Cavendish June 8, 2018, 11:58 am

    Hillary? The one that called violent young black men super-predators?
    Most gun crimes are done by young men that lean dem/lib…and have plenty of melanin…just sayin’….

  • kane June 8, 2018, 11:19 am

    On “National Gun Violence Awareness Day” the former POTUS should explain why he allowed the BATFE to violate federal law and approve firearm sales to known violent felons that killed many innocent people in Mexico and a US border agent.

    Perhaps the current POTUS should appoint a special council to investigate the operation.

  • Morris Jaskula June 8, 2018, 10:27 am

    Nobama has a lot of guts talking about changing the leadership when he did NOTHING worth while to stop gun violence–just look at his so called home town of Chicago–more blacks killing each other than anywhere in the country–he should have been removed from office his first year for treasonous acts against our country.
    That piece of shit is a waste of skin.
    Then we have the lying bitch Hillary— she rants on about the kids killed–well what about all the KIDS KILLED in Iraq,Afghanistan and the other toilets of the world and lets not forget the people killed in Benghazi that she and obama ABANDONED in their time of need—DONT THOSE LIVES MATTER–not to those two because they are not black demonstrators or possible DUMB-O-CRAT voters.
    Those tow oare life support systems for ANAL PORTAGES ( assholes)

  • Sebastian Rooks June 8, 2018, 10:27 am

    Yes, 7 kids get shot every day buy (take your libtard choice) 1. Other blacks, add that to the number of twits taking their own lives, etc… and you get stats inflated by dumb a-holes. And two of the biggest a-holes have their photo taken together in this article.

  • James Summers June 8, 2018, 10:23 am

    Alcohol related incidents account for more deaths than firearms.
    Where is the furvour to protect the children when alcohol is involved ???

    Researchers estimate that each year:

    1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor-vehicle crashes.22

    696,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are assaulted by another student who has been drinking.23

    97,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 report experiencing alcohol-related sexual assault or date rape.23

    About 1 in 4 college students report academic consequences from drinking, including missing class, falling behind in class, doing poorly on exams or papers, and receiving lower grades overall.25

    Water the tree of liberty.

  • John June 8, 2018, 9:53 am

    I guess these two jackasses have been told they won’t face treason charges so they surface again to attack our freedoms once more. So sick of their faces and silly giggles!

  • Mac June 8, 2018, 9:21 am

    Yea people all over the world are killing them self for fear they will have to look at your Scary, nasty, but ugly face!

  • bill June 8, 2018, 9:18 am

    Fk ’em both!!!

  • Michael Keim June 8, 2018, 9:13 am

    My question to these two corrupt assholes is: Why did you allow 4 brave men to be killed in Benghazi on your watch? Answer the question then shut the fuck up.

  • Ronnie U June 8, 2018, 8:57 am

    They don’t tell you that 90% of those children shot are Gang & Drug related.
    Almost all of that type of shooting is in the toilet cities like Chicago & Las Angeles.

  • BOB CREEKMORE June 8, 2018, 8:41 am

    Keep up the good work Obama some more comments from you might make you the gun saleman of the decade yet. IDIOT.

  • liquidators1 June 8, 2018, 7:06 am

    I have come to the conclusion that liberal progressive democrats are for gun control for only one reason. They are so intent on destroying America they are afraid someone will shoot them!

    • Zupglick June 8, 2018, 11:54 am

      Understand, the thinking of commie-crats is controlled by their paymasters. Bloomberg and Putin.

  • Jay June 8, 2018, 7:00 am

    The anti gunners, the media lap dogs and anti Americans want nothing more than to get control of your guns, Period! Thankfully it’s against the Constitution. Today they use children as the pawns in their end game Agenda. The media and politicians not one, ever talks about the “safety” of our kid’s in real world danger of themselves and lack of personnel accountability! More teens and others, are killed or maimed by those who drive distracted, text will driving! They can bark the made up statistics all they want but the truth is we are at war and it’s on;y a matter of time before it hit;s the streets if we don’t push back the other way now! I don’t think anyone wants that but it may be what tit takes to MAGA!

  • Chester Pulley June 8, 2018, 3:30 am

    Fuck those worthless Bolsheviks.

  • Chastran June 6, 2018, 2:21 pm

    HilLIARy Rotten Clinton, of course, makes no mention of the thousands of children killed each year by Planned Parenthood…

  • SuperG June 6, 2018, 10:43 am

    And yet almost 3 times as many teens die in car accidents, yet you here nothing about “car control”. I guess Soros and Bloomberg are not paying for that, so their political sycophants ignore it too.

  • Bobs your uncle June 6, 2018, 10:18 am

    Nice to know they still run things. This is Barry’s OFA, Organizing For Action, catchy name. If they said they were going to target Opioid abuse,or some other significant issue I’d believe they actually cared, they don’t. I’m waiting for the fund raiser request in the mail asking for money to continue this fight.

  • Mike V June 5, 2018, 4:24 pm

    I’m sorry but this seems like a non story…yawn.

    How about a story about why the NRA
    Is/has abandoned bump stock owners.

    I’d love to hear a sensible rationale for this silence in the face of impending felony status for a half million people.

    I don’t honestly expect a lot to be done, but we’re getting nothing at all right now.
