North Korea sets off another nuclear bomb. Iran and Saudi Arabia are on the brink of war in the Persian Gulf. Muslim refugees go on rape spree in Europe. What's Obama's priority? Talking about gun control!
It doesn't matter that the Associated Press points out that nothing Obama is proposing would stop mass shootings:
An Associated Press review shows, [Obama's proposals] would have had no impact in keeping weapons from the hands of suspects in several of the deadliest recent mass shootings that have spurred calls for tighter gun control. The shooters at Sandy Hook and San Bernardino used weapons bought by others, shielding them from background checks. In other cases, the shooters legally bought guns.Do we also need to point out that the killing of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by an illegal alien, which Obama ignored, the weapon was stolen from law enforcement. Ditto for the shooting of a police officer in Philadelphia on Thursday. That shooting was done in the name of Islam and ISIS which is something else Obama will never acknowledge.
And imagine how the death toll in the San Bernadino Islamist massacre might have been reduced had someone in the room been permitted to carry a weapon. The shooters there had time to reload because they knew no one could oppose them!
What about eliminating gun free zones and putting retired cops or military in schools with weapons to defend the kids? No way!
Obama won't talk about the threat of Islam and rejects the view that guns in the hands of responsible citizens is the way to overcome gun violence. Even when confronted at the CNN Town Hall by a woman who was raped and now takes her personal safety and that of her children very seriously. Here's Kimberly Corban:
As a survivor of rape, and now a mother to two small children -- you know, it seems like being able to purchase a firearm of my choosing, and being able to carry that wherever my -- me and my family are -- it seems like my basic responsibility as a parent at this point.
I have been unspeakably victimized once already, and I refuse to let that happen again to myself or my kids. So why can't your administration see that these restrictions that you're putting to make it harder for me to own a gun, or harder for me to take that where I need to be is actually just making my kids and I less safe?
All Kimberly heard from Obama was blah, blah, blah. To Obama, a gun in the home is a greater danger than rape!
Finally, why not enforce existing gun laws? Oh no.. can't do that. Since most of the perpetrators are black that would be RACIST!
Washington Times: A few federal attorneys have enforced that law with remarkable results, but federal prosecutions in this administration have declined by a stunning 40 percent. Robbers, who are usually professionals conversant with the law, know they can use a gun without facing harsh punishment if they’re caught. A felon even caught with a gun can be sent to prison for 10 years.Plans are still ongoing to release over 6,000 prisoners. How many plead down gun charges to lesser offenses?
The advance notice of Mr. Obama’s executive orders suggested he would include more aggressive enforcement of current law, but, curiously, that language didn’t make the cut. Eric Holder, his former attorney general, once chastised the U.S. attorney in Richmond for wasting “prosecutorial resources” on such aggressive prosecutions. Why blame felons with guns for violent tragedy when it’s easier to blame the law-abiding innocent for owning a gun?
Once again, Obama confirms that his gun agenda is political. Rather than focus on the criminals who use guns (and who are overwhelmingly black) he focuses on guns in the hands of lawful citizens. His policies would result in MORE gun deaths, not fewer. Ironically, the victims of this violence are mostly black!
