SHOOTING: Obama politicizes Roseburg tragedy

Re: “Oregon gunman opens fire at college” (TNT, 10-2).

President Obama is politicizing the senseless killings in Roseburg, Oregon. Why didn’t he talk about the 16 black Americans shot and murdered in ghettoes that same day and the day before, that black-lives gunfire atrocity is repeated daily and will remain true tomorrow when another 16 are murdered, but get no “coverage” - averaging 6,000 per year.

Why didn’t he have a press conference after last Labor Day weekend when 295 people were killed in automobile accidents?

We protect our president, our members of Congress, our governors, our celebrities, our sporting events, our banks and our courts with guns. Why do we protect our schools, our parks and our children with “gun-free zones”?
