Friday in a press conference at the White House, President Barack Obama mocked gun rights activists as “absolutists” and declared they “think that any gun safety measures are somehow an assault on freedom or communistic or a plot by me.”
Obama said, “And if we’re going to do something about that, the politics has to change. The politics has to change. And the people who are troubled by this have to be as intense and as organized and as adamant about this issue as folks on the other side who are absolutists and think that any gun safety measures are somehow an assault on freedom or communistic or a plot by me to, you know, take over. And stay in power for ever or something. I mean, there are all kinds of crack pot conspiracy theories that float around there. Some of which by the way are ratified by elected officials in the other party on occasion. So we’ve got to change the politics of this. And that requires people to feel — not just feel deeply. Because I get a lot of letters after this happens. Do something. Well, okay, here’s what you need to do. You have to make sure that”
