[Video] Obama – You Shouldn’t Be Able To “Just Walk Into A Store & Buy A Semi-Automatic”
President Obama addressed gun control again at a recent town hall style appearance in Minnesota after being asked about it by a guy wearing a US Men’s National Team soccer jersey, seersucker jacket and what Obama described as a “cool sunglasses” (seriously dude, wtf are you wearing?).
Here are some of the president’s comments,
This is the only advanced country that tolerates something like this. We have, what’s basically a mass shooting, it seems like happening once every couple of weeks: kids on college campuses, kids at home.
And we’re not going to be able to eliminate all of that violence, and there’s a strong tradition of gun ownership, wonderful folks who are sportsmen and hunters, and I respect all that.
But we should be able to take some basic, common sense steps that are, by the way, supported by most responsible gun owners. Like having background checks so you can’t just walk into a store and buy a semi-automatic.
Of course, we all know that you can’t just walk into a gun store and buy any type of modern gun without a background check (or carry permit in some states).
Either the president is just that ignorant of gun laws in his own country or he’s just openly lying at this point to try and make a better point.
Either way, it certainly doesn’t look good for the president.
