“Citizens with firearms training are a multiplying force for the police in their fight against terrorism and therefore I will take measures to ease the restrictions at this time.” – Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan
This week’s terror attack in San Bernardino has once again resulted in Obama and his minions calling for the disarmament of American citizens. Literally before the bodies were cold the President was suggesting that my right to own firearms was the reason this massacre occurred.
Since his first appearance running for office in IL, he’s displayed no ability to do anything other than talk. However, his complete dedication this week to destroying the Bill of Rights while ignoring the threat of Islamic terrorism has prompted me to ask question whose side is he really on?
This evening Obama will grace us with a “special” address to the nation. I’m not holding my breath that anything more than the same “guns are bad, Islam is good” rhetoric will come from his mouth. I’m sure he will not be announcing the firing of the State Department officials who approved Tashfeen Malik’s visa with a false address. He will also not be suggesting that all Americans who are able and willing secure carry permits and stand ready to defend against any future attack on Americans. The Israelis have concluded that the answer to recent attacks on their citizens is to ease carry restrictions and get more good people armed – a lesson intentionally ignored by the current administration.
His answer this evening, no doubt, will be to pass blame and treat Americans as children.
Well, Mr. President, Mrs. Clinton, and Senators Schumer and Feinstein, I am not a child. I’m an adult who has more firearms training than 98% of the Federal agents that protect you. And the fact is that none of you can, will, or are legally bound to, protect me. That’s my job. And I will continue to accept that responsibility by engaging in the daily carry of pistols, and the ownership of auto-loading, magazine fed, battle rifles – the exact types of firearms that suit your security details just fine.
Your words and actions may say different, but my life is just as important as yours.
Reporter Peter Doocy: “President Obama yesterday jumped to say that this mass shooting means it’s time for commonsense gun laws. Does the President really think that common sense gun laws would deter terrorists now that he has admitted that these two may have been terrorists?”
White House press secretary Josh Earnest: “Yes. The president believes that passing common sense gun laws that makes it harder for people with bad intentions to get guns, makes the country safer.”
