Obama reporter shooting gun control

Of course the most politically divisive president in American history, Barack Obama, just shortly after the tragic shooting of WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman Adam Ward in Moneta, Va, has to get on TV and make the most ridiculous display of partisanship imaginable.

After this live, before our very eyes, shooting was just hours old, President Obama did an interview with Monica Malpass of 6 ABC New and made this incredible statement, "What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism," and then later added, "We're not willing to impose some common sense gun safety measures that could save some lives."

What? What does the killing of a reporter and her cameraman have anything at all to do with terrorism? The unbelievably partisan President Obama said in this same interview that because we spend trillions fighting terrorism, somehow that relates to what happened to the reporter who was shot and we should implement some, "common sense" gun safety measures.

If you were a die-hard Obama follower that has not a clue about gun laws, you might be inclined to think there are not any, "common sense gun safety measures" on the books right now at all. And of course, you would be dead wrong. "Common sense gun safety measures" is just one more mantra spewing soundbite that President Obama likes to repeat endlessly which has no basis in reality. We already have plenty of laws in place that are designed to keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them.

One of the other partisan and inaccurate soundbites spewed by Obama and the left is the so-called "gun show loophole." That is an absolute myth, the “gun-show loophole” is an exaggeration designed to foster the false impression that this is how bad guys acquire firearms. It is not. A 2001 Justice Department survey found just 0.7 percent of state and federal prison inmates bought their weapons at a gun show, but president Obama also likes to say that 40% of sales made at guns shows require no background check.

That is the furthest thing from the truth. President Obama has probably never been to a gun show and has witnessed the fact that most gun sellers are licensed who must preform background checks before you can purchase a gun. The only out from that is if you have a concealed carry permit, but to obtain one of those, you already have, you guessed it, an extensive background check.

The loophole liberals like to blow up completely out of proportion is that private sellers do not have to do background checks, but that is not a loophole. The very few private sellers at gun shows are responsible to who they are selling guns to. They can't just sell a gun to anyone. If a person is not allowed by law to own a gun, they can't sell them a gun. If a private seller even suspects a potential buyer has a criminal record or cannot legally own a gun, they cannot sell them a gun. It is a federal offense.

Liberals also like to whine about so-called straw purchases where someone else buys a gun for someone who can't own a gun. Guess what liberals and guess what President Obama, those are illegal as well. You have to begin to ask yourself why Obama and the anti-gun lobby consistently misdirect people and flat out lie about gun shows, gun crime statistics and gun laws? And why does Obama want to do something that he knows and every liberal adviser he has, knows won't work?

And why does Obama have to demonize the NRA, law abiding citizens, responsible gun owners and last but not least, Republicans in Congress, every time a tragedy like the reporter shooting in Virginia happens? I think it is becoming painfully obvious that President Obama has an agenda. Who knows exactly what it is and how he wants to go about undermining the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, but what Obama is doing is dangerous and dare I say, treasonous.
