Washington DC (Storch Report) — While touting his constitutional legal prowess, President Obama told a very partisan gun control crowd today how he was going to make the law to further restrict the sale of guns while breaking the law by executive action.
His teary-eyed delivery for gun control restrictions was visible today for all to see, but it was absent yesterday for radical Islamic terrorism that has taken place in the United States.
It was absent for the beheading of an American journalist by ISIS while he announced the happening and then went out to play golf and it was absent for the victims of San Bernardino and Fort Hood, among other terrorist attacks in the United States. Obama once again demonstrated the importance of his ideology while ignoring his primary responsibility of protecting the safety of all Americans from radical Islamic terrorism.
It was classic Kabuki theatre with a participatory staged audience that also produced tears on cue.
Hypocrisy along with high fives prevailed throughout the prolonged delivery as though Obama had just got a bill through Congress rather making one for himself and his own ideology while breaking the laws of the constitution.
So much for his knowledge of the constitution and the oath of office he took to uphold it; his responsibility is not to make the law but propose it with the approval of Congress.
One of his actions by executive privilege is to report stolen guns or those given away.
I wonder what penalties he is going to impose upon himself, as Commander in Chief, or the government for the guns that flowed to the Mexican Cartels in a failed government devised scheme called “fast and furious,” or for the Obama directed pull-out in Iraq that turned over more than US guns and armament, but military US tanks to ISIS?
Obama said the recommendations are “well within my legal authority” and would be supported by “the overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners.”
There is no evidence to support this statement, nor did the president present any facts to provide any credibility to his claims.
One could legitimately make the case that more guns rather than less might be the solution to our national security against ISIS, which Obama refuses to address. When we shoot back at ISIS terrorists they run and often kill themselves to be in a better place with Allah.
Obama’s executive actions increase the extent of background checks to all that sell guns and define those sellers of guns to more than two that need a license.
If Obama wants to curtail the sales of guns, he should stop talking about them. The facts speak for themselves, his gun control campaign has resulted in Smith & Wesson sales of guns soaring to 900.4 % in the past year.
