Wait..what?! What rock are these people hiding under?
My biggest frustration so far is that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage.
Obama, let’s be real here. First of all, your ‘basic steps’ are not aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. Your ‘basic steps’ are aimed to disarm law-abiding citizens. Secondly, I HIGHLY doubt this is your biggest frustration as president. If it is, then you have a serious mental issue. What about Benghazi? Fast and Furious? ObamaCare? Driving our country into severe debt? TRADING 5 ISLAMIC TERRORISTS FOR A TRAITOR?
We’re the only developed country on earth where this happens.
FALSE. We are not the only developed country that is exposed to gun crime. How about the 69 killed on Utøya Island in Norway? Or how about the gunmen that shot and killed 16 teens at a school in Germany? Oh and let’s not forget the fact that Germany is considered to have the STRICTEST gun control laws in the WORLD.
Our levels of gun violence are off the charts.
Also not true. Gun homicides and gun-related crimes have actually DECREASED by 50% in the past 20 years. In my previous posts, I provide more data and information, including a study showing that a majority of American citizens believe gun crime has increased (gee, I wonder why).
But wait! If our levels of gun violence are “off the charts”, than why do you see in this video that “the world is less violent than it has ever been”? Because I am pretty sure you aren’t talking about Iraq, The Russian/Ukrainian border, Libya, Egypt, the soccer riots in Brazil, the girls in Nigeria, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Or what about all of the Christians being slaughtered through out the Middle East? Surely you couldn’t be talking about that.
Fourth lie (start at marker 1:23):
I respect gun rights. But the idea, for example, that we couldn’t even get a background check bill in, to make sure that if you’re going to buy a weapon you have to actually go through a fairly rigorous process so that we know who you are, so that you can’t just walk up to a store, and, um, buy a semi-automatic weapon… um, it makes no sense.
Now listen (or read..) closely. ALL FIREARM PURCHASES FROM GUN STORES, RETAIL CHAINS, PAWN SHOPS, GUN SHOWS FROM FEDERAL FIREARMS LICENSEES, DEALERS, AND TRANSFERS REQUIRE A BACKGROUND CHECK. It’s called the Brady Bill, which went into effect in 1993 and requires that background checks are conducted before purchasing a firearm.
And lie number 5:
I respect gun rights.
HA! Obama doesn’t respect anything in the Constitution which is why New York Rep. Jose Serrano, a Democrat and ally of Obama’s, introduced a bill(H.J.RES.5) proposing the repeal of the 22nd amendment, which limits presidents to only 2 terms. He most certainly doesn’t respect gun rights. If he did, he wouldn’t be lying to the public to promote his agenda. Ok, so this leaves 5 lies in under 2 minutes..When are you all going to get mad? This guy BLATANTLY lies to your face every time he opens his mouth. WAKE UP, AMERICA!
