Chris Cox Responds To President Obama On San Bernardino Shooting

posted on December 5, 2015

In a new column in USA Today titled, “No, Mr. President, the NRA is not to blame,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox struck back against Barack Obama’s attempt to leverage the atrocious attack in San Bernardino, Calif., for more gun control. Cox points out that “… California has already adopted President Obama’s gun control wishlist: ‘universal’ background checks, registration, waiting periods, gun bans, magazine bans and an expansion of prohibited gun categories. But these laws did nothing to prevent this horrific crime from taking place.” 

Presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley were also quick to use the shooting to advance their agenda, not waiting for details to emerge first. What we have discovered in the meantime does not support these politicians’ claim that the NRA is somehow to blame, or that stricter gun control is the answer.
