The President Gets it Wrong Once Again -- Guns are actually saving lives

 Just hours after the tragic shooting in a South Carolina church, President Barack Obama resumed his fanatical war on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.
“Now’s the time for mourning and for healing, but let’s be clear -- at some point we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries,” Obama said.
Really?  Has the President forgotten just some of the foreign massacres that have taken place during his presidency -- shootings that claimed far more lives than the nine which were tragically lost in South Carolina?  How about:
  • The attacks from earlier this year -- which began at Charlie Hebdo in Paris and continued for 48 hours around the region -- that resulted in 17 people being murdered;
  •  Or the Anders Breivik murders in Norway in 2011 where 77 people were murdered -- 69 of them with firearms;
  •  Or the Derrick Bird shootings in Cumbria, England that left 12 people dead in 2010.
