When Obama unveils his gun control package tomorrow, he will be surrounded by children.
From the C-Span transcript of Press Secretary Jay Carney's press briefing:
I CAN TELL YOU THAT TOMORROW THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT WILL HOLD AN EVENT TO UNVEIL A PANEL TO PRODUCE GUN VIOLENCE AND PREVENT FUTURE TRAGEDIES LIKE THE ONE HERE IN NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT.C-Span has a typo when they say the "panel to produce gun violence" which I find rather ironic given the efficacy of all of the proposals we'll hear tomorrow in stopping further mass shootings. In other words, none.
THEY WILL BE JOINED BY CHILDREN AROUND THE COUNTRY EXPRESSING THEIR CONCERNS ABOUT GUN VIOLENCE AND SCHOOL SAFETY, ALONG WITH THEIR PARENTS.
As to parading little kids in front of the television camera, it is appalling and disgusting and the sort of propaganda usually only seen in totalitarian countries.
Kurt has more on this propaganda display.
