To The Daily Sun,
On Tuesday, Jan. 5, my mother would have been 98 and on that day the president came out with measures that would fix our gun-control problems. He said he would do this since his first day in office.
Background checks after background checks, then he even admits background checks probably wouldn't have prevented many of the shootings in the past few years. (We have been trying to tell him that). He even mentioned all the killings by guns in Chicago.
After looking up on Google I found out that 442 people were killed by guns in Chicago in 2015. My question to the president is how many of these shootings would a background check done, knowing most of them were killed by stolen guns.
I would love to be there when they rounded up the thousands of gang members that commit a good share of these crimes and tell them they would need a background check before they could shoot anyone again.
I listened to the president rant and rave and as usual he didn't impress me at all.
I do feel sorry for all of those that lost love ones and wished the president had done more to prevent these type of crimes by enforcing all the laws that are already on the books.
Many of the president's new laws are undermining our Constitution and should and will be challenged in the courts.
For all you Hillary fans, she endorsed the president's plan on Monday before it was even announced. You like Obama? You will love Hillary.
