Obama has been president for 8 anniversaries of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and never once has he used the occasion to call for a crackdown on radical Islam. Today is the 4th anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and like clockwork, the soon-to-be ex-president is once again calling to restrict our 2nd Amendment rights. If ever you needed an example of what a horrible leader he has been, this is it.
On many occasions Obama has lamented that his biggest regret as president has been that he couldn’t impose unconstitutional gun control upon the people of the United States. He doesn’t regret all of the harm and embarrassment he has caused, just that he wasn’t able to subjugate Americans with unreasonable restrictions on their rights. Again, just horrible.
Wednesday was the 4th anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting in Newton, CT where a crazy person killed his mother, stole her guns, and then murdered 20 school children. No gun control law short of the total confiscation of privately-owned firearms would have stopped this massacre, but that hasn’t stopped liberals like the president from exploiting the tragedy to deprive law-abiding people of their gun rights.
On his FaceBook page, Obama once again tried to use the tragic deaths of young children to push his agenda. He started out with a series of lies about his gun control efforts:
My administration has taken action to tighten the background check system and make it more efficient, strengthen enforcement of existing laws, boost gun safety technology, and help more Americans suffering with mental illness get the help they need.
None of that is true. Obama tried to make laws from the Oval Office, which is as unconstitutional as gun control, but ended up doing nothing. He didn’t tighten the background check system, his enforcement of existing laws actually saw a historic drop in gun crime convictions, and his boosting of “gun safety technology” only resulted in gun manufacturers and sellers refusing to have anything to do with smart guns.
Despite Obama’s boasting that he did a bunch of stuff on the gun control front, he then slams the Republican Congress for not doing the things he claims he already accomplished:
Still, Congress failed to pass gun safety reforms, including universal background checks that had the bipartisan support of the vast majority of Americans, even as more mass shootings have riddled America in the years since.
I know it must be shocking that Obama is telling more lies. The vast majority of Americans do not support any more gun control and that includes an expanded background check system with a national gun registry.
But I still believe that there are enough good people on both sides of this issue who care more about protecting our kids than defending effortless access to guns for those who would do our kids harm. I still believe we have the courage to change.
And that brings us back to the futility of gun control to stop evil people from ignoring the law. Nothing Obama has ever proposed would stop a madman from murdering his mother, stealing her legally owned firearms, and then going on a killing rampage. Obama and all of the anti-gun nut liberals have no desire to protect people; they simply want to control the rights and behavior of law-abiding citizens.
I’m glad Obama is leaving office next month and I’m even happier that he does it regretting that he wasn’t able to obliterate our rights while in office.
