Let’s take a trip back memory lane to late 2015, following the San Bernardino shooting White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest argued at a press conference that more gun control laws would stop terrorists.
The assertion, of course, made no logical sense whatsoever.
Reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest: “Does the President really think that common sense gun laws would deter terrorists now that he has admitted that these two may have been terrorists?”
“Yes. The president believes that passing common sense gun laws that makes it harder for people with bad intentions to get guns, makes the country safer,” responded Earnest.
“But so the president thinks that when there are potentially two terrorists sitting around planning a mass murder they may call it off because President Obama has put in place common sense gun laws?” Doocy shot back.
“Why wouldn’t we make it harder for them? What’s the explanation for that?” responded Earnest.
The Obama White House is essentially arguing that passing more gun laws which disarm law-abiding citizens will somehow make jihadists, who have access to international terrorist contacts and back-door weapons smuggling rings, less determined and less capable of carrying out massacres.

At this point it’s obvious to everyone other than bleeding heart liberals that gun control rhetoric doesn’t accurately reflect reality and it never will. In addition, it’s hard to believe that terrorists would magically decide NOT to follow through with plans to mass murder American citizens should they encounter more stringent gun control regulations.
Apparently those who oppose the second amendment believe terrorists follow the law.
