Liberals absolve Islam of all responsibility, blame Second Amendment for Orlando massacre.
Following the Orlando massacre early Sunday morning that took the lives of 50 LGBTs at a gay bar, President Barack Obama spoke to the media at a press briefing and blamed the Second Amendment less than ten seconds into his speech.
We are still learning all the facts. This is an open investigation. We’ve reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer. The FBI is appropriately investigating this as an act of terrorism. And I’ve directed that we must spare not effort to determine what, if any, inspiration or association this killer may have had with terrorist groups.
He began by refusing to acknowledge that the attack had anything to do with radical terrorism despite ISIS taking credit for the attack themselves.
The disgusting globalist puppet President then pivoted to blaming the Second Amendment:
Today marks the most deadly shooting in American history. The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle. This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school or in a house of worship or in a nightclub. And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be. And to actively do nothing, is a decision that’s wrong.
The White House narrative is clear, Islam is still a “religion of peace” and the shooting would have never happened if the city had instituted more stringent gun legislation. His assertions, of course, completely disregard the fact that gun violence fell considerably since 1991 as gun sales skyrocketed during that time and gun-controlled cities like Detroit and Chicago lead the nation in crime.
Obama’s speech was another example of the cognitive dissonance of the regressive left who will do everything within their power to absolve Islam of any blame whatsoever while nonsensically attacking the Second Amendment. The reality is, firearms keep people safe – and the Orlando massacre would have never happened if an armed citizenry had been present with an equalizer.
Obama and any leftist pushing for gun control as opposed to the truth about Islam being incompatible with Western culture following the worst Jihadist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 ought to be ashamed of themselves.
