Obama was front and center on his philosophy today – never let a good crisis go to waste.
The twenty-six year old shooter, Chris Harper Mercer, at a Umpqua Community College in Oregon was killed by police after an exchange of fire after he killed 10 to 13 and injured 7 to 20 according to current reports, but the story is evolving. The gunman is dead.
Barack Obama obviously wants the people in this rural area to be without guns to protect themselves which he made clear in his speech.
In the most idiotic statement of the day, the college president said the college was not a gun free zone but it would be tomorrow.
We don’t even know for sure how many are dead in Oregon or who they are and Obama has already called for disarming Americans and leaving them without any way to defend themselves against insane people who would do something like this.
Obama issued a statement via Josh Earnest:
“The issue of sensible steps that can be taken to protect our communities from gun violence continues to be a top priority of this administration,” press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters. […]
Earnest said the “vast majority of Americans” support stricter gun laws, including closing the so-called gun-show loophole. But he said Obama is “realistic” about the dim prospects of congressional action on gun control.
“The president has been quite candid about how this is and has been a source of frustration for him,” he said.
The fact is nothing will stop crazed psychopathic gunmen.
Obama, who doesn’t care about Christian genocide or half the people in this country, and who doesn’t care if he lets terrorists and cartel members into the country, is very angry about this shooting incident. How believable is that?
Obama gave a speech addressing the shootings this afternoon and had to read every word of his speech. The NY Times said he was “clearly outraged.” Apparently so much so that he had to read every word. It would be better if he reserved this outrage for Putin and the Ayatollah instead of legal gun owners.
Obama said this is becoming routine. That’s true if he means his hometown of Chicago. Since 2012, there have been 6,000 shootings in Chicago and over 1600 murders, and Chicago has extremely stringent gun laws. They were confiscating guns and shutting down gun shops unconstitutionally.
Obama doesn’t even mention the carnage in Chicago – ever – and he ignores the fact that the gun laws are not enforced. A minuscule number of gun violations are prosecuted. Obama releases violent drug dealers who use guns.
He challenged the media. “Have news organizations tally up the number of Americans who’ve been killed through terrorist attacks in the last decade and the number of Americans who’ve been killed by gun violence, and post those side-by.” He’s comparing two unlike entities.
You can listen to his disgusting speech at the New York Times.
This so-called leader wants to leave us defenseless. Crimes like the one that took place in Oregon are the reason law abiding people need guns.
Obama knows he is going to anger half the people in this country but he does it anyway. He’s such a divider.
Moore said she saw her teacher get shot in the head, apparently after the gunman came into the classroom. At that point, Moore told the newspaper, the shooter ordered everyone to get on the ground. The shooter then asked people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing, Moore said.
The shooting took place in Professor Larry Levine’s class.
