Leave it to the current administration to turn an award ceremony honoring the nation’s top law enforcement officers into a political event.

President Obama spoke at 2013 National Association of Police Organizations TOP COPS award ceremony in the White House last week.

The president briefly honored the law enforcement officers present and then launched into an anti gun tirade.

According to CBS News,

At the event, the president also reiterated his push for tougher gun laws, which has seemed to ebb in the wake of last month’s legislative defeat of a proposal that would have expanded background checks for gun buyers.

Mr. Obama called for “common-sense steps that protect our rights, and protect our children, and protect officers in the line of duty by making it harder for dangerous criminals to get their hands on lethal weapons.”

Strangely, the president didn’t mention anything about immigration, Benghazi, failure to get a balanced budget passed or any of the other host of issues currently facing his administration.
