In an interview with Britain’s BBC, President Obama said that Americans having guns and observing their Second Amendment rights is far worse than Muslim terrorism.
In the interview Obama lamented that he has not been able to put an end to the Second Amendment and noted that Americans are worse than terrorists.
Obama’s exact words: “If you look at the number of Americans killed since 9/11 by terrorism, it’s less than 100. If you look at the number that have been killed by gun violence, it’s in the tens of thousands.”
In the lead up to this statement, Obama mentioned “mass killings” with guns but did not mention mass killings or attempted mass killings in which those holding the guns were jihadists.
He said, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws.” However, it is not that America does not have gun control. Rather, it is that Americans increasingly see that gun control does not stop criminals from acting out their criminality, therefore support for more gun laws has waned.
Note that he doesn’t point out that it is black gangs in the inner city doing most all of this killing with guns. They are the terrorists. It isn’t merely “gun owners” doing all this killing as Obama frames the point.
Obama thinks you are worse than terrorists, America.
