Obama Turns Navy Yard Memorial into Shameless Gun Control Push

Obama Turns Navy Yard Memorial into Shameless Gun Control Push

Speaking at the Navy Yard memorial on September 22, President Obama turned the event into a shameless gun control push.

According to CNN, Obama said he fears there is a “creeping resignation” among Americans to accept such tragedies as the “new normal.”  

Obama said he has had to “[grieve] with the families impacted by mass shootings… fives times during his presidency, citing shootings in Ft. Hood, Texas; Tuscon, Arizona; Aurora, Colorado; Newtown, Connecticut; and now the Washington Navy Yard.”   

He did not mention that the one commonality between all five of these shootings is that they took place in gun-free zones, but he did mention that he believes more gun control is the answer: “I do not accept that we cannot find a common-sense way to preserve our traditions including our basic Second Amendment freedoms and the rights of law-abiding citizens while at the same time reducing the gun violence that unleashes so much mayhem on a regular basis.”
