If there's even one life that can be saved.....

Our president recently said:

Quote:
“Because while there is no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil, if there’s even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there’s even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try,” he said today in remarks about the shooting and announcing new executive orders promoting gun control."
If the lives of "the children" are so important, why not have a press conference and a task force to reduce abortion? Millions and Millions of children have been terminated by abortion, yet the president does NOTHING! Even one life Mr. Obama?

Remember this story?

http://us.cnn.com/2013/01/10/us/home...iref=obnetwork

The King says "if there’s even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try..." Doesn't the life of Melinda Herman count? There is 1 life that was saved by a gun. Heck, then there are the 2 kids. (these were nine year old children) That makes 3 saved.

If saving lives is the goal, it sounds like there should be some obligation to evaluate the column of lives saved as well.

Because aborted fetuses are not "children."

Reminds me of the 3/5ths compromise.

Quote:
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.

Hold on:
there are many cases in which homicide charges are brought up against perps who have killed a pregnant mother, they were charged with 2 counts.

I have seen this and can not understand the logic. Guess it is because at that point the mother has chosen to keep the child.

As a pro-gun/anti tyranny guy, I think using the abortion argument really isn't necessary. It only works if people think Abortion kills a child. Most liberals don't believe so and liberals are most likely who your audience is when it comes to the pro/anti gun stuff.

You're just setting yourself up to be derailed by, "well when is a fetus a child" blah blah blah as already seen in this thread.

There's an overwhelming myriad of facts that support the right of the people to bear arms that this one is really not necessary.

Sure but there are many that think the 2nd Amendment doesn't support an individual right to bear arms, so it's not like any argument might work..

A little off topic but the fetus comment reminded me of the joke, When is a fetus considered a human being? When it votes Republican.

I know you are right but no one can disagree with the fact that 99% of the time if a fetus isn't aborted, it will be a child. Just makes obama look stupid standing there with the chillens talking about saving lives.

The Dear Leader doesn't seem too concerned about the national debt the children will inherit.
