WASHINGTON (Ucs News) — President Bush promised a Ohio town hall audience that he would to take up gun control with the US congress. The president told the crowd “I can think of 32 blood spattered reasons to consider gun control.” The pro-gun Republican audience was stunned into silence.
The silence was broken when a woman yelled, “I think George Washington wanted me to have an automatic weapon!” Mr. Bush responded, “I think that George Washington wanted to arm citizens as part of an organized militia which is their constitutional right.”
In 2004, President Bush vetoed a bill extending a ban on several types of assault
weapons for another 10 years. The ban expired in September of that year.
Now, with 32 students and teachers lying in bloody heaps, the President is counting the human cost of not supporting gun control.
