Obama Smuggles Guns to Mexico, Blames 2nd Amendment for Mexican Gun Violence
Posted By Daniel Greenfield On May 5, 2013 @ 1:16 pm In The Point | 13 Comments
I have to admit that Obama has a point.
It was dastardly of the 2nd amendment of the Bill of Rights to set up an illegal operation smuggling guns to Mexico. And the time when the 2nd amendment’s Attorney General was held in contempt of congress for stonewalling about the illegal operation was pretty bad too.
There are some people who say that it was Obama who did those things, not the 2nd amendment, but accountability is so 1792.
Meanwhile in 2013, Obama continued his non-stop worldwide apology tour/ vacation and stopped by Mexico City to apologize for all those guns he sent to criminals. But in true Obama fashion, instead of apologizing for his own actions,he instead apologized for America and pushed gun control one more time.
Obama delivered a speech today in Mexico City where he blamed the United States for being the root of Mexico’s violence. He even implied that the 2nd Amendment was to blame, after absurdly claiming he was committed to “uphold” the right to bear arms.
But worst of all was the shameless hypocrisy of a man whose Attorney General Eric Holder carried out a gun-running “Operation Fast and Furious” which sold AK-47s and other weapons, which have been used to murder over 300 Mexican civilians, and 2 U.S. Agents.
“And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.
I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as President I swore an oath to uphold that right and I always will. But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do.
“So we’ll keep increasing the pressure on gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico. We’ll keep putting these criminals where they belong — behind bars.“
I think that it’s quite courageous of Obama to issue a call to put himself behind bars. This is an issue where I believe we can find bipartisan support to move forward and put gun traffickers like Holder and Obama where they belong.
But of course all those gun trafficking problems exist even when Obama Inc. isn’t running guns in order to shut the 2nd amendment which it supports as much as I support it, because we have a porous border.
If Obama really wants to stop gun trafficking to Mexico, he can
1. Stop trafficking guns to Mexico
2. Secure the border
3. Blame the Bill of Rights for his gun trafficking and tolerance for illegal migration
