President mocks defenders of liberty

“If there’s even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try,” says President Barack Obama.

“If your actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking,” says Vice President Joe Biden.

They speak of infringement on our right to bear arms and, in doing so, mock 1,309,000 Americans who have paid with their lives for our liberties.

It is appalling that a president and his supporters would, with the stroke of a pen, obliterate the blood-soaked ground so painfully taken by the boys of Concord, Gettysburg, the Adrienne, Iwo Jima and other fields of battle. My God, how cheap their lives are considered in this time.
