It’s no surprise the Obama administration is already using the latest shooting tragedy at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado to promote the anti-gun agenda.
In a statement released today, Obama scorned what he called the “easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets,” all the while admitting that the gunman’s motive is still unknown.

“The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence,” a statement from the President read.
“This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this – if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience – then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”
On Friday, 58-year-old suspect Robert Dear engaged in an hours-long standoff with police after opening fire inside of a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, fatally shooting three people and injuring nine, according to police.
While the complete facts behind the shooting are still emerging, Obama is already using it to attack the Second Amendment, continuing his presidential trend of issuing a pro-gun control statement at every opportunity, promoting anti-gun beliefs he’s espoused since college.
In the 2012 book Debacle, Obama is quoted telling author John R. Lott, Jr., PhD, “I don’t believe that people should be able to own guns,” while both worked at the University of Chicago Law School in 1996.
While calling for an end to so-called gun violence, the Obama administration has simultaneously been caught staging their own events for anti-gun exploitation, as was the case in the Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, in which the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms readily sold weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
