Obama’s New Year Eve’s Statement On Gun Control

Obama released a vid to the public New Years Eve and it mostly spoke of his desire to bypass Congress (the American voter) and impose his gun laws executive order. There are some problems with his statements…some severe!
Obama said – “one piece of unfinished business, that’s our epidemic of gun violence” This is a typical response from a liberal with an agenda. The term “gun violence” implies a gun has the ability to inflect violence. Obviously this is ridiculous to a common sense person. This is critical to the fight against those that want guns banned because they use this term to make their fight against the gun, not the core reasons for what causes so many deaths/injuries via those who criminally use guns.
Obama said – “Last month, we remembered the third anniversary of Newtown. This Friday, I’ll be thinking about my friend Gabby Giffords, five years into her recovery from the shooting in Tucson. And all across America, survivors of gun violence and those who lost a child, a parent, a spouse to gun violence are forced to mark such awful anniversaries every single day” This is also a typical tactic used by anti-gun people. This statement implies the core of this country’s deaths, via criminals with guns, is school mass shootings or a single gunman shooting a politician to make a statement. This is also disingenuous! It uses the deaths of children and a woman to push a false narrative. The fact remains that 95% of this country’s deadly shootings happen in cities where gangs, drugs, and single families help create the foundation for deaths via criminals with guns. It’s predictable and ironic that Obama failed to mention that.
Obama said – “Three years ago, a bipartisan, commonsense bill would have required background checks for virtually everyone who buys a gun” – He failed to mention that the bill didn’t pass because 5 Democrats voted against him. He also failed to mention that passing this bill would not correct the real problem at hand, conversely it would create more government infringement on our right to keep and bear arms.
Finally he said this – “I get letters from responsible gun owners who grieve with us every time these tragedies happen; who share my belief that the Second Amendment guarantees a right to bear arms; and who share my belief we can protect that right while keeping an irresponsible, dangerous few from inflicting harm on a massive scale” This sounds touching and makes him sound like he is actually in touch with the public’s opinions, but there’s one HUGE problem with this statement and it’s his purposeful and ignorant statement – “the Second Amendment guarantees a right to bear” This is a false rendition of the 2nd Amendment. This is not a mistake! Obama and his fellow anti-gun crowd misrepresent this so it gives the belief, by those who are also ignorant, that the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to bear arms. This is false!!! On the contrary it gives us the right to be free from infringement via our government on that preexisting right to keep and bear arms. You see, that right was there prior to the Constitution. The 2nd. Amendment protects the citizen from our government to infringe on that right. This rendition implies the government gave us that right, so therefore they can take it away. BIG difference!
In the end Obama’s vision, recollection of the facts, and plans are false and will do nothing to fix the actual problems facing this country as it pertains to guns AND violence.
