Obama and Democrats Rushed to Blame Guns for the Massacre in San Bernardino

920x920Three terrorists dressed in military clothing attacked the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, killing 14 people and injuring 17.

Shortly after the attack, police killed two assailants, a husband and wife (both Muslim), while they were trying to escape. At the time of writing this article, the identity of one of the suspects had been released: Syed Farook.

A Representative of the FBI, David Bowdich, said at a press conference, “the possibility of terrorism has not been ruled out.” Police also reported that the attackers were heavily armed and used assault weapons.

Immediately after the massacre, President Obama politicized the tragedy and blamed the event on guns. In an interview with CBS, Obama said: “We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world, and there’s some steps we could take, not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings, but to improve the odds that they don’t happen as frequently, common-sense gun safety laws, stronger background checks.”

Like Barack Obama, Democratic presidential candidates also rushed to blame guns. Notoriously, none of them mentioned (as the FBI did) the possibility of a terrorist attack.

Below are the reactions of the 3 Democratic candidates:

Hillary Clinton: “I refuse to accept this as normal, we must take action to stop gun violence now.”

Bernie Sanders: “Mass shooting are becoming an almost-every day occurrence in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop.”

Former Governor Martin O’Malley: “Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up the NRA and enact meaningful gun safety laws.”

The reactions of President Obama and the Democratic presidential candidates are no surprise. Let us remember that for them, global warming represents a greater threat to national security than terrorism. Moreover, to many liberal Democrats, guns, (not the motivation to murder innocent people) are the cause of mass massacres in the United States.
