Obama Caught in Major Lie About Gun Laws

It was a disgrace that President Obama jumped immediately into politicizing yesterday’s shooting tragedy, even while the bodies were still warm. And as he took the opportunity to lecture our nation to further his own political agenda, what he conveniently left out of his narrative is yet another disgrace.

While President Obama wants us to believe there’s a positive correlation between more gun laws and less violence — “states with the most gun laws have the least violence” — he ignores the hard facts from his very own home state that prove this lie. While Chicago, Obama’s home town, has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, it continues to see a rise in gun violence — with more than 50 shootings just this past weekend alone.

Last night, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly schooled President Obama on this very issue. Even if you’re not an O’Reilly fan, you just might find yourself thinking he’s spot on in this clip. Watch for yourself (link(below.

Indeed, fresh off the pages of this morning’s Chicago Tribune come these striking statistics:

For the second straight weekend, more than 50 people were shot across Chicago, including a 10-year-old girl grazed in the neck in Woodlawn on Sunday afternoon.

The toll included four men killed and at least 53 people wounded between Friday evening and early Monday morning, according to police.  Last weekend, nine people were killed and at least 45 were wounded.

Consider that the death toll from just the last two weekends alone in Chicago is TEN TIMES that from yesterday’s tragic school shooting. To be sure, each and every life lost is a singular tragedy — whether in Chicago or in Roseburg. So why does our president seize on one but not the other?
