The Obama administration signals that it’s “tragic” that more people buy guns after mass shootings, lamenting that there are more guns in America than ever.
“It’s tragic that in the immediate aftermath of a series of high profile mass shootings that people feel like they have to go out an purchase a gun,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a press briefing with reporters today.
There are, indeed, more guns in America than ever. And the reason they feel like they have to go out and get more? Because without fail you Statist assholes call for banning a class of guns or making them more difficult to get — often before the bodies are even counted.
Earnest said that the White House thinks that there are enough guns in the country, insisting that more guns had not led to fewer gun deaths.
“Our nation is awash in guns,” he said. “That ready access to guns and that proliferation of violent weapons of war has not lead to fewer gun deaths.”
Yet, most of these events happen where guns are banned and are even often in states with strict gun control. Yet, the gun homicide rate is half what it was. Yet…
Your logic sucks, dude.
He confirmed that a process to further restrict Second Amendment gun rights was ongoing at the White House, as staffers were scrubbing the laws looking for more ways for Obama to use his executive authority on gun control.
In other words: You fools, stop buying guns before we can come up with a way to restrict your rights!
