Letter: President's gun control efforts no solution

President Obama signed his 23 gun-grabbing executive actions, surrounded dramatically by a human shield of children.

He played to raw emotion instead of offering a real solution to the kind of mass shootings that happened at Sandy Hook elementary school on Dec. 14.

He will no more stop gun violence with these anti-Second Amendment edicts and scare tactics than someone armed with a pea shooter. He has a bull's eye on law-abiding individuals (the ones he calls "bitter clingers"), who can protect themselves and their families with their own guns, thank you.

Every country, i.e., Cuba, China, Venezuela, that has prevented their citizens from owning guns has enslaved them and made them victims of their own governments.
