    I didn't appreciate the play on emotions in the least. I think it detracts from using logic.

    Basically I heard him rail on three things I take issue with. Assault weapons ban will not prevent gun crimes. Only what type of gun is used.

    I'm up in the air about clip size so I won't comment on that.

    As to assigning the cdc to study the effects of violent video games on children I say: get a clue man. Violent games are already restricted from youths at the retailer level. They are rated M and come with clear warnings on the front of the packages. The problem isn't the game ITS THE PARENT. Banning such material isn't the answer. Perhaps putting teeth behind the restriction of M rated games is but that isn't what he suggested.

    He also suggested we hire more police. Great. That's a great idea but there is one HUGE problem with this line of thinking. Police are mostly reactionary not proactive.

    I'm also VERY disappointed he didn't even mention the option of ANY TYPE of school security. NOTHING. If this is about protecting our children why the hell would that not be topic number one? Metal detectors, armed guards, wrapons locked up on site.....NOTHING

    And as to his executive orders... What the hell were they? He didn't elaborate at all.

    Hope you're not surprised about this. There's nothing like dead kids to use in you're interested in trying to take guns away from everyone regardless of whether the setting is school, mall or home.

    Like everything else that comes out of Washington, when all is said and done, more will be said than done.

    His little rant will be replayed a million times over. Listen carefully. It did nothing more than slap congress around.
