Former first lady Michelle Obama blasted American citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights claiming that having “unfettered access to firearms” is not a good thing.
During a “CBS Mornings” appearance on Thursday, Host Gayle King asked Obama, “Do you think we will ever figure out a way to reconcile gun violence in this country? Because it does keep me up.”
“I hope and pray that at some point enough becomes enough,” Obama responded.
King said, “What is the point?”
“We wondered that throughout our entire presidency, thinking that maybe this time,” Obama quipped.
King the asked said, “Barack Obama said Newton was one of the worst days of his presidency, and we still didn’t get that message.”
“We are the only developed country on the planet where its citizens can have unfettered access to firearms,” Michelle Obama said in an attack on the 2nd Amendment.
“That is not a good thing,” Obama concluded.
“More of us have to feel strongly about it, particularly our young people. This is where democracy comes in. Voting — all of this stuff is decided in the ballot box.”
“Now the problem is that our young people have to understand that just because an issue doesn’t affect you today doesn’t mean it’s not going to matter in five or ten years. Voting matters, that’s all I can say.”
Last month, Michelle’s husband, Barack Obama, responded to the Nashville Christian school shooting with a false claim that “guns are the number one killer of children,” in another attack veiled attack on the the 2nd Amendment.
Of course, his lies have been repeated by the media many times over.
Obama’s claims were regurgitated widely by leftists throughout 2022 following a CDC study claiming guns were the number one killer of children.
Even Fox News ran a story with the same claim Obama made, titled, “Guns now the leading cause of death for US children, per CDC.”
The article claimed firearm-related deaths of people ages 0-19 totaled 4,368 in 2020, according to CDC figures.
But according to Breitbart News, the only way to make such a claim work is to count 18 and 19-year-olds as children.
As the report notes:
But if one does a custom search on the CDC website to adjust the category of children to include only those aged 0-17, only those below voting and military age, then the outcome completely flips.
One sees that the number of firearm-related deaths for children aged 0-17 was 2,281 in 2020, while the number of motor vehicle deaths for the same ages was 2,503.
Another important point to note is that the false parameters — treating 18 and 19-year-olds as children for the benefit of boosting reportable gun death numbers — actually works against the left. That is because CDC numbers for children ages 0-19 show that individuals are 27 times more likely to die in an accidental car death instead of an accidental gun death.
