Obama Uses Facebook To Huckster Anti-Gun Schemes That Are Proven Failures

posted on December 17, 2015

In what must be a new low for an American president, Barack Obama used the third anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy to politick for gun control—not from the Oval Office or Rose Garden or in a joint address to Congress, but through a post on Facebook

After admitting anti-gun laws can’t stop lawless killers, Obama nonetheless asked, “But what if we tried to stop even one?” In so doing, he succinctly summarized the long-on-feelings but short-on-facts, sentiment-over-substance desperation that characterizes so much of the anti-gun lobby’s rhetoric and supposed “reasoning” today.

So it’s no surprise that the schemes Obama promoted—from Connecticut’s gun registration and magazine bans, to supposedly “universal” background checks, to outright gun bans—have all already been tried, and failed, to prevent crimes like the tragedy in Newtown, Conn.
