When I was a child growing up my parents told me if I kept lying I would go to h... . Evidently President Barack Obama's parents never told him that. So I guess he can continue to lie to the people that elected him. He lies as follows: Here are some of his lies and promises.
Oct. 21, 2004: Illinois Senate Debate "Assault weapons have only one purpose: to kill people." Now he is running for president of America. Sept. 9, 2008, he said "I believe in the Second Amendment." "I believe in people's right to lawfully keep and bear arms. I will not take your shotgun, I will not take your rifle, I won't take your handguns, I will not take your guns away." March 13, 2011, My administration has not curtailed the right of gun owners, it has expanded them. Oct. 16, 2012 Obama said: weapons designed for soldiers in war theaters don't belong on our streets. True Mr. President, the weapons you described are illegal and what few that might be on the street are in the hands of criminals. Question! How would these types of weapons get on the street? Maybe another Fast & Furious? Only your government controls these weapons. On Feb. 4, 2013, speaking in Minnesota to a group of law enforcement officials you said "We should restore the ban on military style assault weapons on our streets."
The weapons you and your news media keep talking about are already illegal to own since 1934. False statements bring problems to law-abiding citizens. One last thing Mr. President: learn the proper stance to shoulder a weapon.
Pictures can also lie.
