Inconvenient Fact

Former President Obama continues his life’s worth – sliming the United States at home and abroad. This time, it’s in Brazil:

Barack Obama told an audience in Brazil that “our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense” and claimed machine guns could be bought legally online.
The former president, 57, said the most difficult day of his eight years in the White House was after the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Conn., when 20 elementary students and six staff were shot dead.
“And my daughters were only a little bit older than these young children that have been shot, and I had to go and comfort the parents. And some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time,” Obama said to an applause.

So Obama is lying about guns.


Of course, in Brazil – which until recently had a strict ban on civilian gun ownership – violent crime, especially with guns, is vastly higher than in the US; Brazil suffered 64,000 homicides in 2017, 45,000 of them with firearms. That gives “gun free” Brazil a homicide rate roughly 12 times that of the United States – dwarfing even Democrat-run American cities like Obama’s Chicago.

Given his record, and the record of his pet policy, it’s probably not a surprise he’s lying.

  1. Our gun laws do not make sense. Just not in the way BHO feelz. Because it’s all about the feelz.

  2. I feel a NYT Fox Butterfield moment. “Despite strict gun laws, Brazil has one of the highest firearm homicide rates in the world.”

  3. “Anybody can buy any weapon any time.”
    So Obama repeats the same lie that every liberal opinion writer, and many “unbiased” journalists, regularly repeat?
    More #fakenews.

  4. This made it on to Dennis Pragers show today. Way to be ahead of the curb dude. Also Can Obama just go away? Man that guy is a posterboy for NPD

  5. I wonder what pro-second amendment liberals think when they hear this? They know that it is bullshit. I am about as strong a second amendment supporter as can be, but I do not believe that it should mean that “anybody can buy any weapon anytime.”
    The United States is not a nation where anybody can buy any weapon at any time.

  6. At some point, Obama needs to be asked “OK, so you passed the bar in the state of Illinois and worked the streets of the South Side for how many years, and you were not aware of Illinois gun laws like the FOID and Chicago’s handgun ban, or the 1968 Gun Control Act? Or are you lying to us and just making stuff up?”

    Regarding pro-liberty liberals, they need to be asked “you do know that when you vote for Democrats, this is the kind of thing you’re supporting, right?” Same thing with pro-life liberals.
