Rush Limbaugh weighed in Wednesday on Obama’s Dallas Police Memorial speech by observing that the statement about Glocks, books, and computers is “demonstrably false.”
During the speech, Obama said, “It is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than [to] get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
Limbaugh said the statement is false, that “everybody already has a computer when you count their cell phone.” Limbaugh also pointed out that everyone who has a phone “can buy a book.” He stressed that “you don’t have to go through a background check” for a book. You can even download a book to your phone, “but you can’t download a Glock.”
He lamented that Obama turned the Dallas Police Memorial “into another attempt at gun control,” but made clear that he was not surprised by it. He also made clear his conviction that the statement was not made by chance. Rather, Limbaugh suggested, the gun control push was “a provocative statement designed to illustrate an actual opinion held by Barack Obama.”
Ultimately, Limbaugh believes the gun control “statement was aimed at low-information voters.”
