President Obama spoke in response to the Oregon shooting, vowing once again to spend the last 15 months of his final term to ensure more gun control legislation is passed.
“We have seat belt laws because we know it saves lives,” he said.
“The notion that gun violence is somehow different… that our freedom and our Constitution prohibits any modest regulation… of how we use a deadly weapon… when there are law abiding gun owners all across the country who could hunt and protect their families and do everything they do under such regulations doesn’t make sense.”
“We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.”
Strange he would mention those two countries “in response to one mass shooting,” because both have been brought into question as potential false flags specifically to impose stricter gun control laws in those countries. (Many have likened Dunblane to Sandy Hook.)
Those under 18 are not allowed to purchase plastic knives.
In fact, there are even lobbying groups there to get people to turn in their knives as well, even kitchen knives.
Point is, the “control” doesn’t end with guns. Eventually, people will have to ban everything to be truly “safe”.

On a side note, how cheesy is this clip the White House put on Twitter with the animated text?
Really cheesy? Or really really really cheesy?
We have to come together and take steps to reduce gun violence.
