CAUTION: Conspicuous lack of self-awareness ahead. If you have the stomach to click on the video above, you’ll hear President Obama claiming, once again, that mass shootings like the one in Colorado Springs “just don’t happen in other countries.” Notice that CNN has helpfully added the President’s location — Paris — for their viewers. That’s the same city where 128 were gunned down across the city only two and a half weeks ago. It’s the same city where 11 more were murdered in the Charlie Hebdo attack in January. The man from Chiraq then went on to suggest that it’s up to federal, state and local governments to enact more gun control laws to keep guns out of the hands of “people who are deranged or who have violent tendencies.” We’re pretty sure he’s just trolling us now.

  1. this is all people like him can do. when facts and evidence prove their rhetoric as pure bullshit, what choice do they have other than to just repeat the same old tired mantra hoping no one will notice reality knocking behind them.

    • Give the guy a break! This is one of the very rare instances where he is NOT lying.

      Most of the attacks in America are deranged or disenfranchised individuals with some sort of crazed personal agenda. These sorts of attacks are rare outside of the U.S. (Maybe). The attacks in Paris and all over the world are organized and perpetrated by his Muslim brothers for understandable reasons – Allah hu akbar!

      Oops, wait a minute, Fort Hood and the Mohammad cartoons. Never mind.

  2. Lets ask Mexico about all the shooting and killing that doesn’t happen there. If you can get anyone to talk about it that isn’t afraid of being killed or tortured.

    I will say it annoys me it only seems like these shootings make the news when a white dude does it; If they’re in Chicago’s inner city and performed by minorities no one cares. How fair is that?

  3. From the city that has experienced the largest mass shooting to date. In fact the four largest death counts where guns were used have all been outside of the US. If we were to look at death by stabbing then China still holds the record for death toll.

  4. See that warning light, Barry? Your spotlight time is up. Even the media your party bought and paid for can’t keep you from looking like an ass. Do us all a favor, get over your hard-on for being on TV, and go golf for the last year of your term. Nobody’s buying the shit you’re selling anymore.

  5. It’s really getting tiring to see the Euro-worship continue with this administration and pretty much all progressives…. especially in light of Europe’s impending implosion and defeat by radical Islam.

  6. “…to keep guns out of the hands of “people who are deranged or who have violent tendencies.”
    Do you own a gun? Yes, then you are one of those deranged people with violent tendencies. Kindly turn over your guns.

  7. Flawed logic.
    Got to put your big boy pants on and figure out that bad people do bad things, always have, always will.
    Work on the weather and let the military-LE do what they do .
    Stop acting like a child that didn’t get their way and just get on with making laws that make sense.
    Get back to work and respect the Constitution and Bill of rights.

  8. It sounds like even he is having a hard time selling his rhetoric. Cognitive dissonance must be terribly tiring.

  9. I think the proper terminology is that Obummer is pandering to the Progressive political base.

  10. Getting past all the disparaging remarks about President Sparklefarts…………………

    The real truth is that America is just about the only country in the world that hasn’t had a mass shooting conducted by an organized terror group such as ISIS, Al-Qaeda or Boko Haram or any of the other assorted ISIS aligned Islamic Terror groups.

    I am sure the reason is that the experts of America’s Homeland Security are all keeping us safe.

    Well, actually the real truth is that every terrorist group in the world is well aware that attacking Americans in America is mega-levels of more dangerous to them because here, in America, the victims can and will shoot back.

    When is the media going to start asking and speculating about the real reasons why there hasn’t been a terror-inspired mass shooting here?

    Meanwhile, there are some great firearm and ammo deals out there, keeping stacking up.America and American citizens, the every day folks going about their business while armed, have been proving for a couple of centuries mow that we are the real 800 pound gorilla in the arena.

    • I am still of the opinion that since B. Hussein Obama is their very best friend in the world they are intentionally not organizing anything in the U.S. that would force BHO to do anything effective against them. After the election next year, all bets are off.

  11. obama reflexively sets up straw men in his rhetoric as a tactical defense against the skepticism of white people, who he has seen himself as outwitting all his drug-addled life.
    Strategically he uses “gun violence,” “climate change,” ISIS and what he coined “violent extremism” to divert attention away from his primary column of attack — immigration.

    • If there is they probably don’t have as much coming in from the sale of baby parts. Abortion in France is limited to the first trimester only. In fact very few countries allow abortions as late as in the USA.

  12. “Deranged” and “Violent tendencies” is a fact of the human condition from the beginning. Cain didn’t need a Glock- a rock worked just fine, and if you manage to take away all the Glocks, the rocks will still work at pistol range.

  13. The troubling part for me to accept, is that he actually believes what he says.
    Proof that he is not sane.

  14. Not that I agree completely, but he’s kinda correct. it doesnt happen in other countries. it’s extremely rare. For example between 2000 and 2014 there were 3 mass shootings in Canada. Three …in 14 years. We’ve had as many in a single day

    time to take your head out of your sand.

    Politifacts Obama statement; that was during another shooting and they picked specifically on his choice of words. the “mostly false” part only works if you parse his sentence. they parsed this part:

    “this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.”

    no sh1t sherlock but that’s not what Obama was saying because he followed it up with “it doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency”

    politifact goes on to say:

    “By contrast, the second part of Obama’s claim — that “it doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency” — isn’t entirely off-base.

    We compared mass shooting incidents across countries is to calculate the number of victims per capita — that is, adjusted for the country’s total population size.

    Calculating it this way shows the United States in the upper half of the list of 11 countries, ranking higher than Australia, Canada, China, England, France, Germany and Mexico.”

    “The chart does show that the United States has more mass shootings — and more people cumulatively killed or injured — than the other 10 nations combined, partly because it has a much bigger population than all but China.”

    that’s more than all ten countries combined which together has over 1.7 billion inhabitants. so yes mass shootings do happen in other countries but nowhere near the same frequency EVEN if you factor in population differences

    “Over the decade and a half studied, the researchers found 23 incidents of mass shootings in the other 10 countries, resulting in 200 dead and 231 wounded. In the United States over the same period, there were 133 incidents that left 487 dead and 505 wounded.’

    that’s all 10 countries including china which has 3x the population of the US

    “The reality of the recent instances does not appear to be ‘easy access to guns’ or a lack of regulations regarding them – all recent shooters passed background checks, all had weapons legally obtained or stolen from others, and each State where they have occurred follows Federal guidelines with regard to ‘mental illness’ stipulations.”

    the planned parenthood shooter had a criminal record. why was he able to own firearms?

    • That Polifact article is misleading in several ways. The title is “Is Barack Obama correct that mass killings don’t happen in other countries?” then in the article itself is mostly refering to mass shootings. Obama in his statement said “mass violence”. Polifacts cites the country study on mass shootings. In their chart they have Mexico lists 21 victims for a time period of 2001 to 2014. Yet a simple google search for that time period shows significantly more than that 21 or even the US total for mass killings. China is shown with 80 victims yet a simple search shows the actual mass killings much much higher. France shows 27 yet mass killings if you search is much higher in the three digits. The other issue is that a number of the European countries cited their stats are based on convictions verus the U.S. for total number of people killed whether there is a conviction or not. As far as “frequency” goes it cannot be brought up if we are playing apples to oranges. You apples to apples. Mexico I suspect will blow us out the water on “mass killings” and really do it on “mass violence”.

      So Polifacts plays with the stats. To reiterate they cite the President for his words of “mass violence” and their title has “mass killings” yet they focus on “mass shootings”. Also they do not make any comment about the violence rate, almost all those countries have a violent crime rate 3x or greater of that of the U.S. The President on Polifacts failed to address the rate in which guns could have prevented physical violence and mass killings. So the President is wrong. In his opinion his feelings and political beliefs trumps the facts.

    • And speaking of Planned Parenthood/Planned Infanticide – I’m pretty sure that abortion clinic doctors perform more than 4 abortions each day they are in residence. Does the fact that they do not use a firearm for this procedure mean this does not qualify as a Mass Killing?

      For all the violence perpetrated by guns or knives or machetes or bombs in any country in the world, not just the “civilized” countries, how many can match the 50 MILLION or more government sanctioned abortions of the United States?

    • Prescription drugs, mostly SSRI’s and related brain damaging chemicals, ship loads of Benzies, etc. A totally screwed up society, lack of hope, total loss of trust in our government, alienation from people in general, economic slavery brought about by mega corps and politicians, and I think we’d all be healthier mentally if we all had a good dog to keep us company. Not to mention most men these days have been pretty well put off women by… women. Just what the hell do they want??????? Oops, sorry, rambling.

  15. You all are a laugh. I bet none of you get laid tonight. I’m not an Obama fan by any stretch but I’d buy him a beer before most of you. It’s hilarious that you guys call Obama an idiot stupid etc etc.. He has a law degree from Harvard oh and lets not forget he F’ing became president of the most amazing F’ing country in the world not once but twice. What have most of you done today besides picked your nose while at your crummy job to come home to a family that doesn’t really give two sh!ts about you and jacked off to porn? And he’s the idiot…

    You all sh!t on a religion that has 0.1% of it doing crazy F’ed up sh!t and get all bent out of shape when people sh!t on the gun community for the 0.1% of people that do crazy dumb sh!t with guns. See a similarity there? Probably not because most of you are blinded by your hate for a guy that is way better at life than you.

    You all are against more government, government shouldn’t be able to come in to our homes, can’t take our guns its our right. That’s all fine and dandy unless you have a uterus then you should have no control of what goes on with it the government should because my God says no.

    There is a problem here with mass shootings admit it ADMIT IT. Taking our guns away is not going to fix it but screaming NOOOO you can’t take my guns away like a child does nothing. Vocal progunners are not offering any sort of solution to help curtail these senseless acts.

    Bring on the sh!t storm.

    • “I bet none of you get laid tonight” Hmm you lost that bet. Why start off with an insult?

      “He has a law degree from Harvard” What does Harvard have to do with it? Unlike prior Presidents and candidates he has never released his transcripts from college. How good were his grades to get into Harvard? Was it as some have said that it was Affirmative Action? We have no idea what he took in the way of classes. Ted Cruz went to Harvard and excelled and was well regarded there. We know more about his time at Harvard than Obama. And unlike the Prez, Mr. Cruz defends gun rights. I am pretty sure academically and intellectually Mr. Cruz is far superior to the President.

      Hmmm then we have the anti-god comments. You are getting weirder and weider.

      What we have here is a Libtard trying to disguise himself in the clothing of real men. Please Pajama Boy go back to your hot chocolate and read your DailyKos as you knock one off.

      • Cruz and Obama both graduated magna cum laude from Harvard so their GPAs must have been pretty similar. I imagine you don’t know anything about his time at Harvard because Fox news hasn’t told you anything about it try and educate your self a little..

        “I am pretty sure academically and intellectually Mr. Cruz is far superior to the President.” That’s pretty cool…

        Anti god? When you read words on a page do only words you want to see pop out and you fill them in with words you want to be there? How is that Anti god?

        What did Hot chocolate ever do to you?

    • *laughing so hard I spit out my hot chocolate*

      We “pro-gunners” have offered solutions in the past. They’ve only been met with guffaws and much sweeping beneath rugs.
      As for your other arguments…pro-choice and atheist here. Take your ad hominem ball and play elsewhere.

  16. Obama is a fan of the Big Lie. Tell a lie, make it big, keep telling it in spite of any evidence to the contrary, and people will believe it. Sometimes people are just stupid like that.

  17. I really am amazed. How stupid do you have to be to say the things he says? It’s all “Climate Change, uh … Warming! Uh, … Cooling!” Or some damn thing. And “Guns!!!” Oh, but he’s a big shooter of Over/Under Citori shotguns with weird muzzle porting. Or something. Never mind that his shotgun stance is something out of a Buggs Bunny cartoon.

    Barry has only made one person happy: Jimmy Carter is no longer the “Worst President Ever”.

  18. People that type in caps lose all credibility for me.keep your trolling rock beer for someone else.
    Grow up a bit, bad things happen. Since the first day mankind walked the planet. I have a solution….let those who want to carry do so freely and for those who don’t…stfu.
    Simplified it’s just a matter of good guys vrs bad guys.
    Seems like Europe has always had a problem with high body counts..whether swords..guns…bombs….clubs….gas Make that point again
