Obama Continues Push To Ban America’s Favorite Rifle

posted on June 21, 2016

In his Saturday address to the nation, President Barack Obama continued to blame the gun instead of the terrorist for last week’s terror attack on an Orlando, Fla., nightclub.

“Being tough on terrorism, particularly the sorts of homegrown terrorism that we’ve seen now in Orlando and San Bernardino,” the president said. “It means making it harder for people who want to kill Americans to get their hands on assault weapons that are capable of killing dozens of innocents as quickly as possible.”

Of course, we had a so-called “assault weapons” ban implemented under the Bill Clinton administration for 10 years starting back in 1994. And even government reports acknowledged that the ban had no impact at all on reducing violent crime.
