Barbara LeSavoy at NY-Brockport urges President Obama to ban guns in America

The director of Women and Gender Studies at the State University of New York-Brockport made a bold public statement, urging President Obama to use his power to ban guns in America.

Barbara LeSavoy wrote an op-ed stating that “President Obama to ban firearm possession in America” because “[h]e is the president of the United States.”

“He can change the country. He can do it today. I believe in him,” she added in her article titled Obama’s legacy on guns should be to ban them.

The Brockport professor professes incredible loyalty to Obama, voting for him twice and revealing that she “…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…”

” I admire Obama. But he has let me down. I am disappointed because his presidency could have done more for our country, and sadly, the many taken lives who cannot read this essay. I still worry about urgent social tensions facing our nation, and I recognize their ongoing complexities in policy and legislative action. But gun violence can be averted. Can our country ever be free from senseless gun-crime?”

While the answer is clearly “no,” LeSavoy doesn’t explain “How” or “with what authority” Obama should act.

“Firearm possession should be banned in America; President Obama can orchestrate this directive. His presidency can be remembered as a remarkable turn in United States history where a progressive leader forever changed the landscape under which we live and work. This is his 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.”
