On Thursday Obama rushed to the microphone to weigh in on the Oregon mass killing before all the facts had even been released. In a 12 minute speech he managed to make reference to himself 28 times but said little else that has not been said before. And he continued to repeat the same worn out falsehoods that are so easily debunked. Example:
OBAMA:We know that states with the most gun laws tend to have the fewest gun deaths. So the notion that gun laws don't work, or just will make it harder for law-abiding citizens and criminals will still get their guns is not borne out by the evidence.Odd that he would say that because the guns used were all purchased legal. Odder still because Obama is from Chicago which along with the state of Illinois has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. Yet the killing spree among blacks in Chicago continues unabated. 14 people were shot in 15 hours on Monday with six dead. Among the victims were two children. Do #blacklivesmatter to Obama? Apparently not as he's rarely if ever addressed the problem. And this week was not unusual for Chicago. 2015 may break a record for gun homicides during the presidency of Obama. Here's the carnage report for September:
|Chicago on the way to break murder record during Obama presidency. But apparently black lives don't matter.|
Obama rarely if ever addresses the problem and NEVER addresses the underlying cause!
Obama also mentioned other countries with strict gun laws and fewer mass shootings. Noticeable by it's omission was France, which has strict gun laws but those laws did not stop terrorists in France from killing 12 earlier this year or a lone gunman on a train who attempted to kill fellow passengers but was stopped by young American tourists.
Obama and the left are locked into rhetoric which does nothing to address the real problem and only serves to perpetuate ideological myths. Just as they do with global warming/climate change facts do not matter. And the killing spree in Chicago and other cities run by Democrats continues!
