Rape Survivor Confronts the President, Who Chickenhawks Guns

This is pretty impressive. A rape survivor confronted President Obama about his plan to curtail gun ownership in the country.

“I have been unspeakably victimized once already and I refuse to let that happen again to myself or my kids. So why can’t your administration see that these restrictions that you’re putting to make it harder for me to own a gun or harder for me to take that where I need to be is actually just making my kids and I less safe?” she asked.

Barack Obama tried to explain to the victim of rape that her gun might not actually keep her safe.

He also admitted he had never owned a firearm.

Remember, in the Iraq War, anyone who advocated going to war who had never served was accused of being a chickenhawk.

Now, Barack Obama is advocating policies and he has never even bought a gun. He does not understand how the present policies work. That is the Achilles Heel of his plan, frankly. Most of the Democrats mouthing off about gun control have never actually bought and gun.

A majority of Americans have and therefore understand how full of crap they are.

But it is really amazing that President Obama, who has never owned a gun, wants to tell us that they not only don’t keep us safe, but feels obligated to explain that to a rape victim who took charge of her own safety.
