Ted Cruz: Obama and Clinton Ignore Radical Islamic Terrorism, Punish Law-Abiding Citizens With Gun Control

During a post-debate interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on December 15, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz described how political correctness prejudices President Obama and Hillary Clinton against law-abiding American citizens.

Cruz pointed to Obama and Clinton’s immediate reactions to the San Bernardino attack as proof, explaining that both of them reacted to initial attack reports by calling for more gun control on law-abiding citizens before the San Bernardino attackers had even been found or identified.

On December 2, Breitbart News reported that Obama called for more gun control while the San Bernardino shooters were still at large and Clinton called for more gun control via Twitter while the hunt for the gunman and gunwoman was still underway.

Clinton tweeted, “I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence.”

Speaking to Tapper, Cruz said:

[Consider] Nidal Hasan. Now the Obama administration knew that Nidal Hasan was in contact with Anwar al Awlaki–a known radical Islamic cleric–they knew that he had inquired about the permissibility of waging jihad against American soldiers. Yet they did nothing, apparently because it was politically incorrect [to intervene]. And as a result, Nidal Hasan murdered [13] innocent souls [at Fort Hood].

This is the consistent problem of the Obama administration is their approach over and over again is to focus on law-abiding citizens. What did President Obama, what did Hillary Clinton say after San Bernardino? Let’s take away the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding citizens. That’s the wrong problem–we need to focus on the bad guys.
