Obama Criticizes Texas Open Carry Laws, Ties Police Safety to Gun Control


Fox News carried Obama’s speech, in which he referenced “mass shootings” and Chicago gun crime, then tied them to the Dallas police ambush and said:
[Police] have a really difficult time in communities where they know guns are everywhere. And as I said before, they have right to come home and now they have very little margin of error in terms of making decisions. So if you care about the safety of our police officers, then you can’t set aside the gun issue and pretend that that’s irrelevant.
He then turned to Texas open carry laws and suggested these laws make it even harder for police to do their job. He said:
At the protest in Dallas, one of the challenges for the Dallas police department–as they’re being shot at–is, because this is an open carry state there are a bunch of people participating in the protest who have weapons on them. Imagine if you’re a police officer and you’re trying to sort how who is shooting at you and there are bunch of people who’ve got guns on them.
Obama then transitioned to the officer-involved shooting death of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. “There was a gun in the car, apparently was licensed” but the presence of the gun “caused, in some fashion, those tragic events.”
He then summed these things up, positing the presence of guns as a cause of tensions “between police and the communities where they serve.” Obama said we have to have a “talk” about guns, and he believes “there is a way to talk…that is consistent with our constitution and the Second Amendment.”

Obama Criticizes Texas Open Carry Laws, Ties Police Safety to Gun Control - Breitbart

Truth be told there have been stories of late where citizens have stopped crime because they can carry guns. The allegation of plentiful guns does not wash and with each passing day Americans are finding a need for protection from those who are pushing muslim initiatives and BLM.

We see increasing attacks on this country because the government will not keep an eye on muslims nor stop the immigration of even more jihadists.

BLM has produced a war against police and reports say some places are under siege all with the blessings of the White House and the usual assortment of race baiters.

Meanwhile obama talks about striping honest citizens from weapons while arming agencies and ignoring that criminals do not follow the law.


TX open carry law was irrelevant to the Dallas mass murder. The guy hid and shot from cover. Try dealing with the real problem, a sub-culture among blacks - fostered by the MSM and Feds, the latter driven by BHO himself - where the wildest, craziest accusations against police who shoot criminals attempting to attack the police are believed, even when the police officer(s) are proven to have been entirely right.

Until that sub-culture of false accusation, believing crazy lies, and MSM giving credibility thereto is addressed by crushing liars and the MSM refusing to publish/broadcast accusations without evidence, real abuse will be obscured, and real abusers will be able to hide behind the skepticism generated by the cloud of crazily false accusations.


Not to mention the fact that concealed carry has to do with arms that are- uhm, concealable. Combat rifles don’t fit too well into a pocket or handbag…
