    ROSEBURG, Oregon — As helicopters whirred overhead, bringing President Obama to the southern Oregon community that was the scene of a mass casualty shooting last week at a community college, hundreds of protesters gathered below to voice their objections to the president’s visit.
    As Breitbart News has been reporting all week, many residents of Roseburg had strong feelings about the president using the UCC shooting to promote his pro-gun control agenda, and many of those residents turned out in force mid-morning on a Friday. The protesters began arriving at 8 AM and by 12:33 PM cars were still arriving.

    “Obama Unwelcome” and “Go Golf” were among the signs the protesters carried. Many of the anti-Obama crowd brought American and Gadsen flags to the event and a handful of people were openly carrying firearms.

    One protester held a sign saying that President Obama should be in Chicago rather than Roseburg. “He needs to be in Chicago, in his own hometown and his own home state,” the woman told Breitbart News. “This is where there is a gun problem; we don’t have one here.”

    Not exactly the sitting around the camp fire singing Kumbya the POTUS and his advisors expected.

    I wonder why he went to have a "private" meeting, sans cameras, with the families...

    Over a thousand people turned out to protest President Obama’s visit to Roseburg, Oregon, yesterday, the site of last week’s Umpqua Community College shooting which left ten dead.

    Infowars reporters Joe Biggs and Jakari Jackson were on the ground in Roseburg documenting the overwhelming response from citizens seeking to protect and preserve the Second Amendment.

    More pictures and video at: http://www.infowars.com/over-a-thousand-protest-obama-in-oregon/

    ABC, CBS, and NBC's Friday evening newscasts all spotlighted how "gun rights supporters, many of them openly armed" protested President Obama as he visited Roseburg, Oregon to comfort family members of the victims of the recent mass shooting there. CBS's John Blackstone played up how "the protesters gathered at the Roseburg airport carried both signs and guns – a potential nightmare for the Secret Service." NBC Nightly News featured footage of a Confederate flag flying from pickup truck of one of the protesters – something ABC and CBS didn't do. [video below]

    What they are really protesting is his shameful huckstering of his personal agenda using the deaths of their relatives and friends. It's evident he couldn't care less about the dead. They know it.
