The NRA’s Wayne LaPierre laid down the gauntlet and challenged Barack Obama to a debate but Barack Obama can’t respond because Wayne LaPierre is right. He wants to destroy the NRA because he doesn’t believe anyone has the right to own a gun as he said twenty years ago.
“The president’s calculation is clear: destroy the NRA before the election so Hillary (Clinton) can destroy the second amendment after it. That’s why we won’t get suckered into any of Obama’s fixed fights,” he said.
“But I’ll tell you what: I’ll meet you for a one-on-one one hour debate with a mutually agreed upon moderator on any network that will take it,” he said.
“No pre-screened questions and no gas bag answers. Americans will judge for themselves who they trust and believe on this issue: you or the NRA. Let’s see if you’re game for a fair debate.”
We know that the president would ban every gun and bullet in America and effectively turn us into Australia,” he said.
“And we know if HC is elected she will make sure that happens,” he said, referring to Clinton, who is leading the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
He said if Obama “really wanted to make America safer, he’d pick up the phone and tell his Justice Department to flip Chicago upside down until every criminal with a gun, criminal gangbanger with a gun and drug dealer with a gun is arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned to the fullest extent of the law.
“That would make a difference, that would save lives. But he’s had seven long years to issue that order and he has failed and that is why Americans don’t trust the president,” he said.
The Daily Caller posted a piece by Dr. John Lott, President of the Crime Prevention Research Center, who has personal experience with Barack Obama and his views on guns since he knew the President when they were both at the University of Chicago Law School. He responded to Obama’s comments at a town hall in this excerpt.
The president forcefully claimed: “I respect the Second Amendment; I respect the right to bear arms; I respect people who want a gun for self-protection.”
Well, here’s another quote: “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.” That’s what Obama told me when we were colleagues at the University of Chicago Law School in 1996. Obama has also publicly supported a nationwide “ban [on] the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns” as well as a “ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.” Even as late as the 2008 Presidential primaries, Obama supported Washington, D.C.’s handgun ban.
From inaccurate claims about Congress restricting firearms research to failure to explain that virtually everyone stopped by background checks are law-abiding citizens who have a name similar to the people we want to stop, a lot more corrections could be made.
Does anyone believe he’s “evolved” in 20 years or is it more likely that the control freak in the White House wants our guns?
