obama-I lie


Because last time I bought a book at Barnes and Nobles, there was no background check required.

Some are claiming that his statement was taken out of context, and that Obama was referring to the lack of bookstores in low-income neighborhoods.

But, as RedState notes:

How does this excuse his ridiculous statement? What does the lack of a bookstores in low income areas have to do with the ease of which one can buy a gun? This is like saying it is easier for me to get a nuke than it is to get a Burger from In-n-Out since there is a total lack of those restaurants in this region.

Via Daily Wire:

….On Saturday, President Obama spoke before a crowd at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser with Jamie Foxx in Hollywood. There, he told the Hollywoodites– few of whom own guns, but virtually all of whom have utilized expensive armed guards in public places – that “It is easier to buy a gun than buy a book.”

….Obama launched into a broadside about protesters who didn’t like his gun control proposals: “There were some folks who were protesting about their Second Amendment rights as they understood them…I came away feeling just as strongly as I did the day it happened.” Obama concluded, “This is a choice we make. This is not inevitable.”

Obama then called for a “different vision of what America can look like.”

Note Obama’s language with regard to the Second Amendment: his belief is that the Second Amendment does not confer an individual right to keep and bear arms. Undoubtedly, that is the perspective of likeminded allies Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – all of whom, if elected, would presumably have the power to replace the fifth vote on the Supreme Court, Anthony Kennedy, with someone who agrees with their agenda, tacitly writing the Second Amendment out of the Constitution entirely….

    If I were a gun dealer, I’d make a special offer; Buy a gun and you can also purchase a book for 99 cents. The book we’ll hand to you upon sale, you’ll have to wait for firearms clearance check before we can let you take the gun.

    Shifra, you’re being unfair here. If you listened to Obama’s full remarks instead of selectively editing to make him look bad, you’d know he was talking about Fast & Furious and how he handed out scores of guns to Mexican drug lords. And it’s a matter of record that no books were handed out under F&F. The Mexican drug lords have to shell out their hard-earned cash to buy books, and there aren’t any bookstores in the jungles of Central America. So it really is easier to get a gun than a book, at least as long as you’re a Mexican drug lord and Obama is president. Oh, and it’s also easier to get a gun than a book if you’re part of Obama’s security detail, because they just give you a gun, but they don’t give you a book. And if you buy the wrong book, such as the Bible, they’ll take it away from you so you won’t offend anybody.

    The only book BO has ever read is Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’, which was dedicated to Lucifer. The book is far more evil and dangerous than any gun I’ve ever picked up.

    Well, I suspect many if not all street thugs in Chicago’s south side cannot read anyway
