In an interesting twist pointed out by AWR Hawkins on Breitbart.com, President Barack Obama is willing to blame Islamic extremist attacks on only a small minority of Muslims, yet he is more than happy to penalize all law-abiding gun owners for criminal acts committed by a tiny minority of them.
At Tuesday’s address to the Islamic Society of Baltimore, Obama told those gathered: “As Muslim Americans … your entire community so often is targeted or blamed for the violent acts of a very few.” That’s an interesting statement, coming from the same president who, each time a high-profile shooting occurs, proposes legislation that would negatively affect law-abiding gun owners—not violent criminals.
We’ll be diligently watching for Obama to next say: “As law-abiding gun owners … your entire community so often is targeted or blamed for the violent acts of a very few.” But we won’t be holding our breath.
