Obama Uses Another Tragedy to Push His Gun Control Agenda


Obama Uses Another Tragedy to Push His Gun Control Agenda

President Barack Obama on Thursday again angrily called for stricter U.S. gun laws after the latest mass murder in Oregon and took aim at the powerful National Rifle Association gun lobby for protecting the safety and the rights of Americans.
Appearing in the White House briefing room with a grim expression and an angry tone, Obama said it was not enough to offer prayers after major shootings continued to occur regularly throughout the country.
"As I said just a few months ago, and I said just a few months before that, and I said each time we see one of these mass shootings, our thoughts and prayers are not enough," Obama told reporters after the latest shooting at a community college in which 13 people were killed and some 20 people were wounded.
"It's not enough," he said.
Conceding to the arguments that such shootings are committed by the mentally ill, Obama said it was clear that anyone who commits such crimes had a "sickness in their minds."  Indicating that he knows it is mentally ill people that commit these heinous crimes and yet he goes after guns, go figure!
"But we are not the only country on Earth who has people with mental illnesses who want to do harm to other people," he said. "We are the only advanced country on Earth who sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months."
Obama spoke mainly without notes, angrily anticipating the arguments that gun advocates would brandish in the wake of the shooting. He said he knew his opponents would criticize him for politicizing the tragedy.
"This is something we should politicize," he said, calling on Americans of all political stripes to hold their elected leaders accountable for acting on the issue.

Obama called on gun owners who use weapons for hunting, sport and protection to question whether the gun lobby represented their views. He did not mention the National Rifle Association by name, but his comments were clearly directed at that organization, which has broad political influence in Washington.
Obama and Vice President Joe Biden made a concerted push for broad gun control reforms after the 2012 Newtown, Connecticut School shooting of young children that shocked the country. They were unsuccessful.
Obama said he would continue to bring up the need for reform every time such a shooting took place, but the White House has made clear that it was unlikely to attempt another broad push on gun control through the Republican-led U.S. Congress.
In his briefing Obama said “everywhere there are the strictest gun laws they have the lowest violent crime”.  OBAMA!  What about Vermont where there has never been a State gun law they have the lowest violent crime rate in the country.  Until the Supreme Court over turned the virtual gun ban in the Heller decision in Washington D.C., it had the highest gun crime rate in the country, and guns were totally illegal.  Obama you are a psychopathic liar.

So just who was this crazy that killed and wounded all these people? Read about what the media didn't tell you!  

THE BOTTOM LINE: If you watched the video hyperlink at the top of this article, you would have heard one undocumented statistic after another. As a matter of fact after listening to the video three times I could not find one bit of truth in what he said.  It was either misleading or the truth is totally the opposite of what he said.  In plain words HE LIES!  I refer you to a recent article titled “The Federal Government Wants More Mass Murders”.  

 I ask you’ Obama: When are you going to arm the teachers and give our kids a fighting chance? In every case where a citizen is armed it prevented a mass shooting, such as the Oregon Mall shooting (Read them all). Your gun laws have prevented nothing.  Your GUN FREE ZONES are a magnet for the crazes you admit are responsible. And yet you continue with the very insane philosophy that is the root cause of the problem.
