Fisking Obama’s Gun Control Speech

So, let me get this straight.  We have a current President, that couldn’t pass a background check to become a federal employee because his college records are sealed.  He now wants to impose more background checks on citizens.

We have a president that either is so inept, that he hires speech writers that do not even fact check his speeches – or he is just a liar (which should surprise no one).  Here was the biggest whopper:

The problem is some gun sellers have been operating under a different set of rules.  A violent felon can buy the exact same weapon over the Internet with no background check, no questions asked. 

No. Anyone who has attempted to buy a firearm online knows this is an outright lie.  The gun has to go to a licensed dealer and the background check is done before you get the gun.

We have a president that thinks China is a good example when it comes to gun control – China.

Some of you may recall, at the same time that Sandy Hook happened, a disturbed person in China took a knife and tried to kill -- with a knife -- a bunch of children in China.  But most of them survived because he didn’t have access to a powerful weapon. 

These are his exact words.  They are also misleading.  While in one incident, only a few were killed, there have been several incidents in China where many people have been killed, yes, by knives.


But in America – the problem is guns.

He gets up in front of the American people and “he cries.”  He never cried for the loss of his ambassador in Benghazi, or the others who died there.  There are numerous examples of similar situations, but let's watch the water works flow
If you think that was real – look above.  He lied in this speech.  He flat out lied to the American people, and he “turned on the tears” to emphasize “we must do something.”  Meanwhile focusing on himself for the bulk of the speech.

The president mentions a shooting where a sitting US Federal Judge (John Roll - you probably haven't heard much about him as his assassination was swept under the rug.  He was there to talk to Giffords about the massive amount of immigration cases he was dealing with) was assassinated, and doesn’t even mention him.  (He does mention fellow Democrat “Gabby” Giffords though)

He lies when he says this:
But we are the only advanced country on Earth that sees this kind of mass violence erupt with this kind of frequency.  It doesn't happen in other advanced countries. 

It has been proven wrong again and again.  He foolishly said this same statement IN PARIS only days after Paris was shot up in a mass shooting by terrorists.

The President intentionally mislead the American people when he spoke of Connecticut gun laws requiring background checks reduced gun deaths by 40%.  This is a bald faced lie.

After Connecticut passed a law requiring background checks and gun safety courses, gun deaths decreased by 40 percent

The facts are this: Connecticut’s firearm homicide rate fell by 16% between 1995 (the year of the gun law referenced) and 2006 and 12.5% between 1995 and 2010.  Meanwhile the drops for the US and the rest of the Northeast are much greater during that same time period.  From 1995 and 2006, the firearm homicide rates for the US and the rest of the Northeast fell respectively by 27% and 22%.  From 1995 and 2010, the drops were 39% and 31%.  In reality there was a relative increase in Connecticut’s firearm homicide rate after the passage of the law.

Obama knows this – he is lying.

The real question is – what is his motive for pushing gun control at this time (besides a smoke screen to cover for the 17 prisoners released from Guantanamo Bay)?

He really doesn’t care about gun violence, or he would be doing something about it in Chicago.
