I'm writing in response to the Obama administration's actions before and after the recent school shooting.

More specifically the manner in which the liberal press and media are handling the situation. David Gregory, NBC journalist, and I use that term loosely, used a disgraceful display of prejudice and mindless confusion on Meet the Press last month.

He interviewed Wayne La Pierre, president of the National Rifle Association, about the problem.

The first thing journalists were taught used to be that the interviewer must be impartial or at least act like it in order to present the issue from both sides. Obviously, Mr. Gregory has forgotten this. In fact, he displayed a high capacity ammo magazine during his program. DC police specifically told NBC that this was against the law.

At the very least, he should be fired from NBC.

Our current administration has threatened to use an executive order to circumvent the Second Amendment if they deem it necessary. I say we should impeach President Obama or Vice President Biden or anyone else that even proposes such action by our government.

They are forgetting that this is a democracy, not a dictatorship!

They have forgotten that Chicago, New York and Washington, DC have the most severe gun laws in our nation. They also have the highest crime rate with guns and homicide rate with guns of any cities in our country, and the civilized world for that matter. Gun laws do not prevent crime.

People, wake up before it is too late. They are trying to restrict your rights!
