in an article posted on july 22, 2016 at time's web magazine, authored by maya rhodan (@ m_rhodan), president barack obama was at some pains to explain why he is the most cynical gun grabber in the history of the republic. he also explained at length why there is absolutely no underlying public health and safety reason to justify "gun control," leaving the only possible basis for it a rather cynical attempt to disarm his political opponents.
he may not have intended to do just that, as he was attacking donald trump's "doom and gloom" assessment of the nation at the republican national convention and trying to point out how successful his administration has been, but, he did just that. he proved that there is no basis in fact nor in our recent history to justify interfering with our rights to possess and use firearms.The use of all lower case is in the original. But despite writing in the style of e. e. cummings, his point is still made that by any critical examination what Obama actually said, there is no utilitarian reason to take away American's guns. On a principled basis, of course, there is no reason either, unless your principle is to establish a dictatorship. Is that the principle Obama doesn't want to say?
