A columnist in the Oneida Dispatch notes:
After Barack Obama joined the rest of us in mourning the slaughter of innocent children in Newtown, Conn., Sanford Berman, a Minnesota civil liberties activist, wrote me: "Obama's tears for the dead Connecticut kids made me sick.
What about weeping over the 400 or more children he killed with drone strikes?"No official casualty counts exist. Other sources put the Obama drone child death toll at around 70.
One drone strike under Bush reportedly killed 69 kids.
Mr. Obama did not move to ban drones or drone strikes after taking office. He accelerated their use in attacks.
But now Obama exploits child deaths at Sandy Hook as an excuse to ban lawful Americans from possessing certain modern style guns for sport or self defense or any other use protected under the Second Amendment.
Pretty bold move considering his own record. And the world has taken notice of the hypocrisy.
