The same Republicans who express appropriate outrage over President Obama’s shameless demagoguery on gun control should reconsider their own exploitative oversimplification of the similarly tortured question of illegal immigration.

In reacting to the horrifying shootings in Oregon, the president declared: “This is a political choice that we make, to allow this to happen every few months in America.” The implication is that mass shootings would wondrously cease if only “common sense gun regulation” became the law of the land.
