Obama Demonstrates His Abject, Utter Ignorance Of Firearms—Again

posted on June 16, 2016

During an interview in the Oval Office this week after the Orlando terrorist mass murder, President Barack Obama proudly exhibited his unmitigated incompetence at discussing anything to do with firearms when he said, “It appears that one of those weapons he was able to just carry out of the store, an assault rifle, a handgun, a Glock which had a lot of clips in it ...”

You can see that same ignorance and deception throughout America’s media Fourth Estate, such as when the Washington Post’s Richard Cohen uses his claimed military experience to claim that the semi-automatic AR-15 is no different from the fully automatic M-16 he used in the Army, or when a New York Daily News writer claimed that shooting an AR-15 is like shooting a “bazooka,” that it “bruised my shoulder” and that the trauma of firing a .223 caused the poor reporter to experience “post traumatic stress disorder.”

Inexcusable dishonesty.
