OBAMA: We should politicize tragic shootings, and use victims to push anti-gun agenda.

WASHINGTON D.C. — During a press briefing on Thursday, President Obama stated that Congress should develop anti-gun legislation to decrease the availability of purchasing firearms.

“The majority of Americans believe we should be changing these laws,” Obama stated. “There is a gun roughly for every man woman child in America. States with the strongest gun laws tend to have the least deaths.”

President Obama went on to state that the United States needed to become “more like our allies” Australia and Great Britain. He then admitted that his critics were right, stating that he believes it is appropriate to use gun tragedies to push his political agenda.

“Someone somewhere, will say Obama politicized this issue. This is something we should politicize. This is a political choice that we make, to allow this to happen every few months in America.”

He then took a swipe at the NRA, asking American gun owners to abandon organization that oppose gun control.

“I would particularly ask America’s gun owners, who are using those guns properly safely, to hunt, for sport, for protecting their families, to think about whether your views are properly being represented by an organization that claims to speak for you.”

“We are going to have to change our laws, and this is something I cannot do myself.”

    “… States with the strongest gun laws tend to have the least deaths.”

    College campuses are NOTORIOUS for having the strictest gun laws, known as “gun free zones.” Disarming and regulating lawful gun owners does not saves lives; it endangers them.

      I’m English and we have some of the strictest gun law in the world it’s not a good thing to take away the right to own a gun. We cant have hand guns and our rifle law is crap I own a shot gun which is the only thing you can get without too much trouble but you are interviewed by the police before you can have one it’s very uncomfortable. You can’t stop criminals from obtaining guns or using them.
      In the U.K they are criminals are the only people who can have a hand gun. That seems wrong. All gun laws do is restrict law abiding people from their human right.
      People of the U.S.A don’t let them take your right to own away from you. It starts small and uses public opinion and the media as it’s weapon against you.

    gunmen targeted Christians, asking students what their religion was before shooting them. Read more about shooter here:


    Another mass murderer from the liberal ranks, followed by a liberal president blaming the crime on guns. Sounds like someone is in denial of the facts. …..Or hiring brown shirts to push his agenda.
