Obama Vs. Ice-T On GunsSubmitted by Marc Clair on Fri, 07/27/2012 - 13:46
There is justifiably great outrage and horror being expressed about the recent “Batman” shootings in Aurora, CO where a dozen were murdered and scores more were injured by a masked and heavily armed gunman. Predictably most of the mainstream media isn’t asking the right questions. Equally as predictable is that both sides of the anti-gun/pro gun paradigm use the tragedy to highlight their political views on gun control.
Recently none other than My Man! , El Presidente himself spoke up on the issue. Here’s what he had to say.
Mr. Obama claims to be a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, before going on to say that he “recognize(s) the traditions of gun ownership…that hunting and shooting are part of a treasured national heritage.” Though he claims to speak for the “majority of gun owners”, there no mention of self-defense, or defense against a tyrannical government, or pesky things like that.
Contrast that with recent statements from rapper and actor Ice-T.
