As anticipated, the tragic terrorist attack today Sunday, June 12, 2016 on a night club in Orlando which left at least 50 victims dead and over 50 victims injured, was used by President Obama in his White House Press Brief to further his anti-gun and anti-second amendment agenda in his masterfully delivered propaganda.
President Barrack Obama states:
“Today marks the deadliest 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 a movie theater, 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 as well.”
As what is known at time of this writing already and which even President Obama called a terrorist attack, the above statement of President Obama is simply categorically false and intentionally misleading for all those who cannot think on their own.
Clearly, today marks the deadliest terrorist attack committed by a radical Islamic Terrorist since 9/11. But as usual, the words radical Islamic Terrorists were never mentioned by our President.
Today’s terrorist attack is really not “a reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on weapons”. The terrorist was a licensed and trusted security guard who purchased at least two firearms legally under full scrutiny of a security back ground check.
Not only recent history is evident that “a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub”, is not needed for deadly terrorist attacks. Maybe it would make the anti-gun and second amendment critics and opponents better if the terrorist would have detonated a suicide vest or any other explosive device. There seems to be no shortage on any such Improvised Explosive Devices nor on instructions and materials to build such IED’s.
There really is not much of a decision to make in regards to “we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be. And to actively do nothing is a decision as well.”. I can tell you now it is not the kind of country I want it to be.
A country where a lone radical Islamic Terrorist all by himself can assault an entire night club filled with over 350 people including security personnel, kill and injure more than 100 people, finds time and opportunity to call 911, over the period of at least 3 hours and apparently none of the 350 victims is able to defend themselves with a firearm and kill that fanatical Islamic Terrorist.
Even the State of Israel in which a strict gun control is enforced had to admit that gun control does not curb terrorism when just recently the Israeli Government appealed to their licensed gun-owners to start carrying their firearms to defend against increasing Palestinian terror attacks committed with knifes, cars and yes, firearms.
