President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday was carefully staged to promote his gun-grabbing second-term agenda. Arrangements were made so TV cameras would pan to the faces of victims of gun violence in the House galleries.
Last week, singer Tony Bennett told Congress the violence in the United States was like that in Germany prior to World War II, when "the Nazis came over, created tragic things and they had to be told off" ("Tony Bennett: Without gun control, U.S. may become 1940s Germany," Web, Wednesday). Mr. Bennett's singing talent notwithstanding, his understanding of history is ridiculous.
