Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  On June 26 2014 President Obama held a Minnesota town hall in which he outlined his continued push for “basic, common sense” gun control which includes “background checks so you can't just walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic.”

WhiteHouse.gov posted a video of the town hall in which Obama responded to a question about “[reducing] gun violence in this nation.”

Here is part of his response:

This is the only advanced country that tolerates something like this. We have, what's basically a mass shooting, it seems like happening once every couple of weeks: kids on college campuses, kids at home. And we're not going to be able to eliminate all of that violence, and there's a strong tradition of gun ownership, wonderful folks who are sportsmen and hunters, and I respect all that. But we should be able to take some basic, common sense steps that are, by the way, supported by most responsible gun owners. Like having background checks so you can't just walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic.

There was a small applause when Obama mentioned the need for background checks to keep people from just walking into a store to buy a semi-automatic. The problem with this statement is we have had background checks to keep people from just walking into a store to buy a semi-automatic since 1993.

Semi-automatic or not, you have to go through a background check for every retail firearm purchase.

    1. Mr. President, we do not tolerate violence, or any crime at all.

      In a free society there is the good and the bad, no laws past, present or future can legislate what is inside the mind of an individual, a common thief, rapist, mass murderer, etc.

      They can’t stop suicide bombers in the middle east now can they?

    2. Someone must have shot him in the face with one because it looks like it is about to explode. So he is proposing to make a law already in place. This is what we have in government. Big waste of trying to do what has already been done. You tax dollars at work!

    3. Maybe we need a back round check for politicians and a million dollar free speech permit for them too, make it renewable monthly of course.
      And the number 1 requirement publicly show their birth certificate.

    4. Where is this gun store where I can just walk in and buy a gun I want to go there. Seriously another lie what else is new but peopel belive them.

    5. Actually, you illegal alien tyrant wannabe impostor, in AMERICA, under our beloved Constitution that you use like so much Charmin, we should be able to walk into a gunshop and buy a Thompson subgun, with NO FedGov paperwork, along with any other small arm that the “militia” may hold that is commonly used by armed forces in the conduct of war.

      But, like American history, you know NOTHING about Freedom and American Liberty according to the Founders.

      You want to stop “gun violence”, you ignorant, arrogant ba$tard? TARGET THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT, and ENCOURAGE LAW ENFORCEMENT TO WORK IN CONCERT WITH THE CITIZENS OF THIS NATION. After all, the COPS get their AUTHORITY from We, the People. And as our SERVANTS, they should welcome the help.

    6. Yeah, and you shouldn’t be able to bypass Congress, ignore the Constitution, and use the ‘bully pulpit’ to lobby against the aspects of American tradition and culture that you don’t like!
