“Every time I think about those kids [at Sandy Hook], it gets me mad. And by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago every day,” the president said, evidently acknowledging that the city with the toughest gun laws in America has a high homicide rate.
The issue of passing further infringements on the Second Amendment always seems to bring the most powerful man in the free world to tears.

In 2012, Alex Jones called the president out on his fake crying during his gun control push shortly following the Sandy Hook school shooting.
“This is pure exploitation by the corrupt ruling class that wants to disarm us,” Jones said.
