Utah -(AmmoLand.com)- While the United States and much of the world is under attack from radical Islamic terrorists, President Obama refuses to see the threat and instead views the NRA in particular, and gun owners in general, as the threat.
A few recent examples of the President’s inability to grasp the situation are:
On November 29th President Obama declares that ISIS is contained. One day later Islamic terrorists murder 130 people and injure 368 in France. France, a country with gun control laws so draconian they make California look like Utah.
In an interview aired on November 26th on CBS, President Obama states that he is confident that the U.S. is safe from a Paris-style attack. Six days later Islamic terrorists carry out a Paris-style attack in California murdering at least 14 people. Yes, California, a state with the most oppressive gun control laws in the U.S.
On November 30th President Obama, pushing for gun control, after a shooting in a gun-free zone in Colorado, states “I mean, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings; this just doesn’t happen in other countries.”
He makes this statement in France just 18 days after the mass shooting there by Islamic terrorists, and which followed on the heels of another mass shooting by Islamic terrorists there ten months earlier (Charlie Hebdo attacks). When last we checked, France is another country.
While it would be easy to laugh at the President’s comments and ridicule his inept grasp of the world around him, we believe this is no laughing matter. The President fails to see the threat of Islamic terrorism, and he believes the solution to stopping these attacks is more gun control. Something that worked neither in the attacks in Paris nor California.
President Obama’s response to the San Bernardino attacks was to run to a microphone and call for “gun safety legislation.” As if passing out gun locks to terrorists is going to somehow protect us.
Gun rights issues aside, this might be amusing except for the fact that people are dying, and the President refuses to acknowledge the true threat or offer real solutions. While the USSC’s main focus is on protecting gun rights, we felt obligated to point out the serious collateral damage Obama's focus on gun owners is having for the nation.
