Barack Obama is at it again.
Here’s the frightening message 44 sent to the teens…
Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We’ve been waiting for you. And we’ve got your backs
“We’ve been waiting for you.”
Obama’s show of support came shortly before Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association’s Executive Vice President, told the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday that politicians and the media are exploiting the Florida school shooting to expand gun control and ultimately abolish the second amendment.
“As usual, the opportunists waited not one second to exploit tragedy for political gain,” LaPierre said during CPAC, the annual gathering of conservative activists and Republican leaders in National Harbor, Md. “Chris Murphy, Nancy Pelosi, and more, cheered on by the national media, eager to blame the NRA and call for more government control.”
“They hate the NRA,” LaPierre said.”The elites don’t care one wit about school children. If they truly cared, they would protect them.”

In the wake of the Florida high school shooting, former President Barack Obama is calling for legislative action on gun control, saying it’s “long overdue.”
“We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless,” the 44th President tweeted Thursday. “Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted earlier Thursday that Congress has a “moral obligation to take action and spare more families from this violence.”
Billboard has former First Lady Michelle Obama’s response to the Parkland shooting:
Former First Lady Michelle Obama also tweeted her support for the Marjory Stoneman survivors on Wednesday evening, saying that she is in “total awe of the extraordinary students in Florida. Like every moment for progress in our history, gun reform will take unyielding courage and endurance.” She assured the students that she and Pres. Obama are firmly on their side.
“@barackobama and I believe in you, we’re proud of you, and we’re behind you every step of the way,” she wrote.”
