Obama Lies His Head Off Over Guns To Crowd In Brazil: In America ‘Anybody Can Buy Any Weapon Any Time’

0 3,714

Former President Barack Obama spoke to a crowd in Brazil this last week on VTEX DAY, at a conference in Sao Paulo, and took the opportunity to brazenly lie his head off over gun laws here in the United States. It’s nothing new… he did it throughout his presidency and now he’s trashing our constitutional right to bear arms to the international community. It’s despicable.

In a clip flagged by Grabien’s Tom Elliott, Obama stated: “Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon, any time. Without much, if any, regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns.” Not one bit of that statement is true and many were quick to back that up with facts.

The former president, 57, said the most difficult day of his eight years in the White House was after the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, CT when 20 elementary students and six staff were shot dead. You’ll remember that is when Obama wept faux tears for the cameras. “And my daughters were only a little bit older than these young children that have been shot, and I had to go and comfort the parents. And some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time,” Obama said to applause.

“You know, without much, if any, regulation, they can buy it over the internet, they can buy machine guns. And for me, having to speak to parents who have lost a child, just two days or a day after it had happened, and not being able to assure them that that would change, that we would fix this — I couldn’t bring their children back, but I couldn’t even promise them that we would change the law so this didn’t happen to somebody else’s children,” he said. Dishonestly pushing gun control on the graves of children… it’s vintage Obama.

From The Daily Wire:

“Stephen Gutowski, a Second Amendment reporter for The Washington Free Beacon, highlighted some of Obama’s in a series of tweets on Friday.

“Former President Obama just straight up lied about America’s gun laws while at an event in Brazil–a country with strict gun laws and an unfathomably-high gun murder rate,” Gutowski tweeted. “Former President Obama told the Brazilian crowd ‘anybody can buy any weapon any time without much, if any, regulation’ of our gun laws which is just plain false on its face. A complete lie.”

“It’s especially stark given that he’s talking about American gun laws in relation to the Sandy Hook shooting where the shooter did not legally purchase his firearms but instead murdered his own mother and stole hers,” Gutowski continued.

“In a series of tweets from 2017, after the Las Vegas shooting, Gutowski highlighted existing regulations on firearms.

“First, the sale of new fully-automatic firearms was effectively banned in 1986 under the Hughes Amendment,” Gutowski tweeted. “Fully-automatic firearms that were registered under the National Firearms Act before 1986 were grandfathered in & are still legal.”

“However, in order to obtain a legal fully-automatic firearm you must apply to the ATF, pay a $200 tax, & register with the ATF,” Gutowski continued. “The ATF has a registry of every legally-owned full-auto firearm & informs local law enforcement of all who own them in their jurisdiction. Fingerprints and photographs are required to be submitted along with your registration application.”

“Beyond the registration process, which can take up to 9 months to complete, the price of fully-automatic firearms is extremely high,” Gutowski noted. “A fully-automatic rifle that might have only cost $500 to produce sells for $20,000-$30,000 on the civilian market now because of the 86 ban.”‘

Back in 2016, Obama stated: “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.” That is obviously an outrageous lie and Obama never backed down from it.

Even the weaselly Washington Post nailed Obama over it:

“Federal law prohibits licensed firearms dealers from selling a handgun, such as a Glock, to people under 21 years old. It prohibits unlicensed people, like family, from selling or transferring handguns to anyone under 18. In most states, you need to be at least 18 to purchase and own a handgun.

“Public libraries, on the other hand, generally don’t have an age limit or a background check for children to get a library card and access books and computers for free.”

In 2015, Obama also said this: “There are neighborhoods where it’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable.” That’s another stunning lie from a guy well-versed in falsehoods. Since when are background checks required for buying vegetables? You see my point here.

There is no other way to state it here… Obama made blazingly stupid lies in Brazil to push gun control in the U.S.
