Obama's double standard

In listening to and reading various news reports on the gun control debate, I notice a double standard regarding this issue. While everyone rightly agrees that deranged people using guns to murder people is a senseless tragedy, why does the Obama administration condone murder by other means?

While the president rightly condemns murder by gun, why does he actively promote murder by abortion? Almost a million babies are murdered in our country every year via abortion, yet he says nothing about this tragedy.

Also, what about Operation Fast and Furious? In this failed operation, guns were allowed to be smuggled across the Mexican border by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives without the knowledge of Mexican officials. They were not traced or tracked. These guns were used by Mexican drug cartels to murder Mexican citizens. A U.S. Border Patrol agent also was murdered by someone using one of these guns. This has been documented. So far, no one has been held accountable for this government-sponsored operation. Why is there no outrage coming from Obama concerning this operation?

In light of this, it makes me wonder what Obama's true agenda is for wanting to disarm law-abiding U.S. citizens. Make no mistake about it: His goal is to totally disarm law-abiding citizens.
