In an op-ed for the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle titled "Obama’s legacy on guns should be to ban them," Barbara LeSavoy, director of Women and Gender Studies at The College at Brockport, gave expression to the leftist wet dream that underlies all of their moves to diminish or repeal the Second Amendment.
"I urge President Obama to ban firearm possession in America," she began the op-ed boldly. "He is the president of the United States. He can change the country. He can do it today. I believe in him."
Apparently. She goes on to detail just how much she believes in her Messiah:
"I voted for Barack Obama. Twice. During his 2008 presidential campaign, my two daughters, partner, and I ate every meal in our house on Obama placemats. We bought these at our local supermarket, plastic-coated, plate-sized paper rectangles with an image of his face framed by colors of the flag. While politically minded, I am not overly patriotic [no surprise there - Ed.], so this mealtime ritual of American allegiance was odd for me. Still, we looked at the image of his face each day and we believed that he really could be the change in America."
Despite the fact that during Obama's first term "some of his promises to our country did not come true," LeSavoy remained a true believer as 2012 rolled around:
"I did not waver. I dug into our old dining room cupboards, and found our worn but resilient Obama placements. I dusted them off, and once again, my family and I ate all of our meals looking at his image. In his presidency, we still imagined a country on the edge of change."
On the edge of disaster, would be a more appropriate description. Anyway, LeSavoy was disappointed that Obama has not yet led us all into the promised land of the Progressive Utopia. "But gun violence can be averted," she declared. "Can our country ever be free from senseless gun-crime?"
It can if Obama steps up his game, LeSavoy believes. "Firearm possession should be banned in America," she continued in the op-ed, a measure that would be Obama's "legacy": "To establish gun control laws in America that will reduce high levels of male violence and usher in a culture of peace and civility."
Like most if not all academics specializing in teaching Gender Nonsense, LeSavoy doesn't seem to have a firm grasp of reality. She doesn't understand what such a ban would entail or what a complete failure it would be. But she does know this:
"Barack Obama is the president of the United States. He can change the country. He can do it today. I believe in him."
