Barack Obama made great theater out of his weepy press conference to declare he was closing the non-existent “gun show loophole” and other sundry evil means by which law-abiding citizens may acquire firearms. His executive orders, he tells us, will “save lives”, Second Amendment rights and separation of powers be damned.
It would seem that the loophole our aspiring Imperator did NOT close was the one where a firearm, or two thousand firearms, is purchased with taxpayer money, transported at taxpayer expense, and sold to known criminals. You know, the Fast and Furious loophole. The loophole that is the reason that for the leader of the Sinaola drug cartel, the murderous Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, came to be in possession of a .50 caliber rifle, and undoubtedly more firearms, courtesy of the Obama Justice Department.
That’s right. While Obama was crying his crocodile tears, the guns his Attorney General had authorized be allowed to “walk” into the hands of Mexican gangs on both sides of our borders, continue to kill Mexican citizens. Hundreds of Mexican men, women, and children have been brutally slain by these violent criminals, with bullets from the barrels of Fast and Furious guns. A US Border Patrol Agent has also died by the hand of a Drug Cartel criminal using a Fast and Furious weapon. I have little doubt that other American citizens have lost their lives to criminals armed with guns provided them by the Obama Administration through Fast and Furious, whether we hear about them or not (which we won’t).
What was the purpose of this deadly and entirely illegal gun-walking operation run by the Obama Justice Department? Why, it was provide fodder for the gun-control zealots to make their pitch for the disarmament of the law-abiding in the United States. That’s right. So that the case could be made for yet-stricter gun laws further infringing on the right to keep and bear arms. “Sensible” gun laws. You know, like the Emergency Decrees after the Reichstag Fire. Sensible. Oh, and Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder? Never HEARD of Fast and Furious, as he did his best Lois Lerner/Hillary Clinton under oath. He has, of course, been replaced by his female doppelganger in Lois Lynch, in a job that seems to have but three qualifications: melanin content, contempt for the Constitution, and a desire to disarm the American populace. The ones that aren’t “her people”, anyway.
Who else has the Obama Administration been considerate enough to provide guns to, courtesy of the American People’s wallets? Right. You guessed it. Islamic extremists and terrorists. Murderous animals differing from those in San Bernadino, Fort Hood, Chattanooga, Little Rock, and Boston (or Paris, or Mali, or Burkina Faso) only in geographic location. Terrorist groups who have murdered thousands of Christians (and Muslims) across the Middle East. Sworn enemies of the United States bent on the destruction of all they encounter in the name of their violent cult disguised as a religion. The very religion that Barack Obama pledged to stand with.
It would appear that the Obama White House is perfectly willing to believe that the populace of Syria, or Libya, needed to be armed, to help them in their struggle against the tyranny of dictatorship. Americans, in Obama’s view, deserve no such redress against tyranny, despite the Second Amendment, and the clarity of the Founding Fathers on the requirement for it. In fact, Obama is so dead set against our gun rights that he is willing to sacrifice the lives of an American CBP agent and hundreds of innocent Mexicans living in a virtual war zone, to produce a propaganda campaign to brainwash the American people into giving up their last means of protection from the tyranny of men and women like himself who hold so tightly the levers of power.
To someone who understands what Obama is, and what he intends, his faux-anger at “gun violence” is positively Orwellian. To someone who believes such displays to be sincere, I would love to ask that person if Obama managed to mention between sobs the men, women, and children of Oaxaca, or Tijuana, or La Laguna, or Cuidad Juarez, or Aleppo, or Ramadi… If that person doesn’t understand the question, then they can’t understand that Obama and his ilk (Hillary, Bloomberg, et al.) wish to disarm us for THEIR protection, not ours, and certainly not the children of Sandy Hook. That is what Obama gun control is for. That Obama is perfectly willing to have guns bought and supplied by the American taxpayer deliberately placed in the hands of the most dangerous drug cartels in Mexico, but not law-abiding Americans? Why, that is how Obama gun control works! So, please, if you still think that the “gun control” of the far left somehow makes us safer, you have the intellectual curiosity of a pack mule. And no, I don’t want to have a conversation about “sensible” gun laws with you. Because you haven’t the sense to do so. Go hang out with loudmouth half-wits like Whoopi Goldberg or some other liberal nincompoop.
