President Barry crying does not equal compassion

So, the President put on a soap opera-quality acting performance on Monday while announcing his 229th executive order restricting gun availability. While referencing the Sandy Hook tragedy, the Dear Leader stopped to shed the kind of tears that remind me of a certain reptile.
For those of you unfortunate enough to have brains that flicker with candlelight, leading you to believe that the current occupant of the White House was in any way sincere about this, I do not have words rich or expressive enough to convey how sorry I feel for you.
Did Obama cry when Kate Steinle was shot dead by a five-times deported illegal alien lowlife? He ignored the news and said nothing. Did he weep when American reporter James Foley was decapitated by ISIS? He was seen laughing ten minutes after his appearance at the podium as he went to play golf. Did he shed any tears in the wake of the San Bernadino terrorist massacre? No, he just visited the community on the way to yet another vacation. Was he passionate in defense of free speech and expression this time last year when the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo were attacked? Hell, there wasn't even any American representation to speak of at the subsequent rally.
Maybe if we didn't have a President who excuses gun felons and violent illegal immigrants, who encourages open borders and sanctuary cities which harbor criminals, and packs the courts with liberal judges and advocates sentencing reform which sets free violent criminals who've used weapons that go bang-bang, we wouldn't have to fret about gun control. Perhaps if this President did not spend so much time pitting citizens against each other, showing contempt for our police forces and debasing our nation's military, guns would not be an issue.
A civil society is one that respects the freedom of the law-abiding while not having to worry about the consequences that such liberty entails. When you work against a civil society, you can hardly be surprised when violence occurs. The women of Germany know this only too well. Do you think the mayhem that ensued when hundreds of male "migrants" stormed the space outside the Hauptbahnhof station in Cologne, raping and assaulting every female they found, would have continued for much longer if one—even just one—of those said females was armed? Exactly.
Barry O. said that gun violence "happens on the streets of Chicago every day". What he, of course, failed to mention is that Chicago, like the rest of Illinois, is supposed to be a gun-free zone, with some of the strictest anti-gun legislation in the country. You see, criminals don't really dig on what something is "supposed" to be. It defeats the point of being a criminal.
The President wants to ensure that guns do not end up in the wrong hands. Like Mexican drug cartels? Now I wonder which administration was responsible for that fiasco, known to us as "Fast and Furious"? Yet, for those of us on anti-depressants, we may be barred from getting an equalizer with which to protect ourselves. Is this not discrimination?
The Second Amendment was not a suggestion or an afterthought to the Bill of Rights. The rights of a suitably armed populace was insisted upon, early in the ratification proceedings, by New York, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Madison, Adams and other founders grew to appreciate the integral need for the issue to be addressed in the establishment of the Constitution.
The Second Amendment states, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." So, where exactly is the trouble for gun-control zealots in understanding the plain English of "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" and "shall not be infringed"?
If you think the Second Amendment is outdated and written by trigger-happy, slave-owning old white men, then we might as well get rid of the First. We are, in fact, doing just that with "hate crimes," "safe zones" and the nascent rise of an untouchable state religion—Islam. Worship as you please, but don't criticize those adherents to "the religion of peace". If you dare to do so, Attorney General Lynch will school you on compassion and tolerance with FBI, ATF and IRS agents at the ready to ensure you never again forget your place.
And who even cares about the Fourth, Fifth, Ninth or Tenth Amendments? In fact, I can think of only one Amendment, the Third, that has not been violated. This is about soldiers being quartered in houses without the either the soldier's nor the homeowner's consent. Yeah, more 18th century white guy silliness. They'll get around to abusing this sooner or later, I have no doubts.
Look, I'm not saying the previous president didn't have a horrifying lack of regard for the Constitution either. George W. Bush allegedly called it "just a goddamned piece of paper." But you can see articles on Slate and Daily Kos kvetching about that, pretending to be upset over that put-down of our national document. Obama violates articles and amendments hither and tither with one executive order after another. Crickets. Brainless New Left commies everywhere regard Obama as a hero. Hey, he's just doing what he has to do. Immigration reform, climate change and gun control have to be accomplished somehow and if Congress is too slow to act, then hell with our representatives. (Not that they're a damn shred of good, albeit.) 
Yet nowhere does the Constitution state that executive orders shall act as alternatives to Congress' rightful place to decide matters of national precedence. They are intended to facilitate management of the Executive branch during any President's term. That is all.
You can think what you want when it comes to the issue of guns and violence and what constitutes mental illness, another can of worms entirely. Just don't pretend this boob in the Oval Office is a hero, unless never letting an opportunity go to waste is your idea of heroism.

Edit: I've thought of another example of Obama's caring and compassion. Do you remember him giving a bouncy shout-out to one of his friends in the press corps while announcing the terrorist massacre at Fort Hood?  This president needs to calm down and stop being so sensitive, y'know? Crap happens.  Mostly as a result of him and his Stasi-like minions, but let's never mind that.

Everything about Barry is fake. And he is in complete la-la land. (As evidenced by the other night's SOTU address.)

Last night's GOP debate had a brilliant discussion on the 2nd Amendment. Marco Rubio: "It is not an option. It is not a suggestion. It is a right." Amen to that.

I'm not keen on Rubio, but good for him. He's absolutely correct about that.
