It took only one question, phrased in the President’s own typical wording, to make Obama look like a fool for thinking terrorists or criminals in general will stop killing people if the White House enacts strict gun control laws.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Obama Press Secretary Josh Earnest whether the President actually believes Second Amendment-infringing laws would stop terrorists.
“The president thinks that if there are potentially two terrorists sitting around planning a mass murder, they may call it off because President Obama has put in place common sense gun laws?” he asked.
The use of Obama’s own ‘common sense gun laws’ verbiage in this simple question reveals just how ridiculous the notion is.
It gets even better when Earnest not only answers yes to the question, but then goes on to say they still don’t know if the San Bernardino attack was terrorism.
Watch the exchange below …

Via Fox News Insider:
President Obama doubled down on his calls for stricter gun laws following the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.
Obama declared Thursday that the motive for the attack was still unknown before calling for “basic steps” to be taken to make it harder for individuals to obtain guns in America.
Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy pressed the White House on the remarks, asking whether tougher gun control laws can stop radical Islamists from carrying out an attack in the U.S.
Josh Earnest answered that Obama does, in fact, believe that “common sense” gun laws will make Americans safer.
“The president thinks that if there are potentially two terrorists sitting around planning a mass murder, they may call it off because President Obama has put in place common sense gun laws?” Doocy asked.
Earnest said it’s still not clear yet if the San Bernardino shooting was a terror attack, emphasizing that all of the suspects’ guns were purchased legally.
Don’t know if the attack was terrorist motivated?
All of the guns were purchased legally?
Everything about the left’s narrative has crumbled apart in this tragic case – We are not at war with radical Islam, gun control will stop shootings, and on and on.
But our delusional President is clinging to his ideology, no matter if it is to the detriment of the American people.
He’s clinging rather bitterly.
