Wayne LaPierre: Obama’s obsession with our gun rights

November 15, 2013 // Wayne LaPierre, NRA //

Barack Obama, the candidate who promised Americans in 2008 that “I will not  take your guns away,” now, as President of the United States in 2013, has  embraced the universal firearm confiscation of Australia and England—schemes  that saw the destruction of hundreds of thousands of registered, legal firearms  that had been outlawed and taken under threat of force from licensed gun owners  by their governments.

Obama revealed his gun control endgame in a Sept. 22, 2013, political speech  at a solemn memorial for the 12 Washington Navy Yard victims murdered by a  deranged killer on Sept. 16, 2013.

Obama coldly used the madness of a delusional lone mass-murderer to claim  that the rampage “ought to lead to some sort of transformation … it ought to  obsess us.”

In the same breath, Obama defined his personal “obsession” and his notion of  “transformation” for ordinary American gun owners:

“That’s what happened in other countries when they experienced similar  tragedies. In the United Kingdom, in Australia … they mobilized and they  changed.”

The Washington Post praised Obama’s demand for “transformation”  to an Australia-style gun roundup and destruction as “commonsense.”

While the U.S. media either ignored or glossed over Obama’s embrace of the  Aussie model for gun bans, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on  Sept. 23, 2013, led its coverage with this:

“The U.S. president, Barack Obama, says it’s time for America to follow the  example of countries like Australia when it comes to gun control.”

With a Sept. 23, 2013, headline, “Obama hails Australian gun laws,” Sky News  led its coverage with: “President Barack Obama has used Australia as a positive  example of a country that tightened gun laws after a mass shooting.”

Virtually no U.S. media outlet was honest enough to describe what actually  happened to our formerly free English speaking cousins as a direct result of  mass murders committed by lone, criminally insane killers.
