Sequestration should be top priority

Does it trouble any other Americans that limiting the right to keep and bear arms seems to have a higher priority than resolving sequestration, which threatens both our national security and our economy with reduction of defense contracts that will add to the underemployed and unemployment we face now. Watch the unintended consequences!

While Americans focus on the proper way to control the mentally ill who look for the soft target where no guns are allowed, who knows how the effect to “lead from behind” is affecting the Arab Spring and the nuclear advance of Iran and North Korea. I hope the president meets more often (maybe every morning?) with the security advisers he didn’t meet with before we lost four Americans in Benghazi.
