Barack Obama Was The King Of Gun Control Ideas
He Just Didn’t Understand The Second Amendment.
The Second Amendment guarantees us the right to bear arms. That means, I can own a gun, and there is NOTHING you can do about it. HAHA! No, but really. There’s nothing you can do about it. It’s my right to own a gun, and the federal government can’t tell me no unless I committed a felony. Of course, there is the mental health argument, but what all does that include? The left wants to do everything in their power to make sure you don’t own a firearm.
Apparently, Barack Obama was all talk when it came to gun control.
More than 100,000 convicted felons or other “prohibited persons” tried to buy guns each year during President Barack Obama’s administration by lying on their applications, but the Justice Department only considered prosecuting about 30 to 40 people each year, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.
The Obama administration may have publicly aligned itself with anti-gun activists, but it consistently turned a blind eye to prosecute known criminals who tried to buy guns.
A June 2016 Justice Department Inspector General’s report revealed that between 2008 and 2015 the U.S. Attorneys office considered prosecuting “less than 32 people per year” for lying on form 4473, the federal application to buy guns. Per Daily Caller
Only 30 to 40 a year? WOW! Why not the full 100,000+? I assume the Obama administration overlooked this in hopes there would be more mass shootings. Why would I say that? The entire idea of Gun Control can be implemented once the public feels completely afraid of guns. Call me crazy, but you know it makes sense.
