It is a little thing called the Constitution that you’ve supposedly swore to uphold? The better question is Mr. President why are you not addressing the threats from real Islamic terrorism? Amazing. The petulant child-in-chief thinks it defies common sense to protect victims from violent crime. I guess he’s thinking in terms of how useful victims are to his own political agenda.
President Obama quickly grew political Thursday while speaking at a memorial site for the victims of the Orlando terrorist attack, attacking Republicans for voting against gun control laws.
“The notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to the killer defies common sense,” Obama said. “Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons should meet these families and explain why that makes sense.”
Obama has asserted his support for an assault weapons ban in the wake of the massacre at a gay night club that left 49 dead. The perpetrator was a Muslim who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group, which executes homosexuals. Obama did not delve into those details in his remarks.
He expressed support for the news that the Senate would hold votes on preventing individuals on the terror watch list from buying weapons.
