President Barack Obama seems to think that different gun rules should apply to people in rural areas and people in urban areas. As I noted last month:
My point was that if liberals have declared words like “Chicago” to be racial code, then surely Obama’s attempt to distinguish between rural and urban gun owners should be judged by the same standard.
Obama repeated the same “regional” argument yesterday, saying he wanted to be “respectful of regional differences.” But if that were really the case, why wouldn’t he leave the issue to state and local authorities?
There is no basis in federal law for the distinction Obama is trying to draw. The only distinction is political: “bitter clingers” are a significant obstacle to Obama’s gun control.
Hence the meaningless talk about regional differences–which, if we are to believe the liberal media, amounts to racism.
