Obama White House: "as [Obama] said yesterday, if even one child's life can be saved by the actions we take here in Washington, we must take those actions"

It doesn't make any more sense to say that we should have a law if it can save even one more life than to say we shouldn't have a law if it loses even one more life.
JAY CARNEY: If these things were easy, they would have been achieved already. If renewal of the assault weapons ban were easily accomplished, it would not need renewing because it would have happened already. The fact of the matter is the president is committed to pushing these proposals. He is not naive about the challenges that exist, but he believes that, as he said yesterday, if even one child's life can be saved by the actions we take here in Washington, we must take those actions.
Some of Obama's quotes: 
Obama (January 14, 2013): if there is a step we can take that will save even one child from what happened in Newtown, we should take that step. 
Obama (December 16, 2012): If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg before that -- then surely we have an obligation to try.

Hitler pushed gun control. How did that help Anne Frank? That's the "one child" I think of when Obama says that.

If Obama REALLY believed this, why didn't he make those 19 changes Biden says he can make alone during his first term?

What about the child in the womb?

Anne Frank says, "Please don't kill any more children with that Nazi gun control stuff. When the Nazis took me away to the camp, there was no grown-up with a gun to stop them, because of the Nazi gun control. So I went to the camp, and I died. When people plead, "Never Again!", please listen to them, for me. I'm gone. I've been gone a long time. But other children can be saved. Please save the children."
