Obama has been known to use tragedies to push political agendas. He has done this yet again during the aftermath of the devastating terrorist attacks in Paris, France.
The president traveled to Paris and gave a press conference this morning.
He was asked about the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado. Obama said, “I say this every time we have one of these mass shootings. This just doesn’t happen in other countries.”
The only problem with his answer was that he was standing in Paris, where a mass shooting conducted by Islamic State terrorists had just taken place, killing over 100 people.
Obama followed up his statement acknowledging that America was “rightly determined to prevent terrorist attacks wherever they occur” but seemed to separate the two events in his mind.
He argued that since the United States was determined to fight terrorism, it was important for Americans to demand more gun control as well.
The president continued, “We devote enormous resources, and properly so, to rooting out networks and debilitating organizations like ISIL and maintaining the intelligence and improving the information sharing that can identify those who would try to kill innocent people,” he said. “And yet, in the United States, we have the power to do more to prevent what is just a regular process of gun homicides.”
He went on to urge Congress to pass stricter gun laws.
SHARE if you’re sick of Obama trying to impede on our Second Amendment rights!!!
