Obama: Some Neighborhoods Easier to Buy Guns than Veggies, Books

Friday at Benedict College in South Carolina while President Barack Obama was discussing  gun control he said, “You can go on in some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm that it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it is easier free to buy handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable.”

Obama said, “It is hard to reduce the easy availability of guns. And as long as you can go on in some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm that it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it is easier free to buy handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable, as long as that is the case, we are going to continue to see unnecessary violence. But I will end by saying this — despite those frustrations, despite the failure of congress to act, and in some places it goes the opposite direction, people say we should have firearms in kindergarten and we should have seen guns in bars — you think I am exaggerating? You look at some of these laws,. Despite those frustrations, I would say it is still within our control to reduce the incidence of handgun violence by making sure that our young people understand that that is not a sign of strength, that violence is not the answer for whatever conflicts they may have.”
