Obama Tells Lies About American Gun Laws To Crowd In Brazil (VIDEO)

During a recent visit to Brazil, former President Obama spoke to a large crowd and went on at length about gun laws in America.

Unfortunately, what he said just isn’t true.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Obama tells Brazil: In America ‘anybody can buy any weapon any time’

Barack Obama told an audience in Brazil that “our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense” and claimed machine guns could be bought legally online.

The former president, 57, said the most difficult day of his eight years in the White House was after the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Conn., when 20 elementary students and six staff were shot dead.

“And my daughters were only a little bit older than these young children that have been shot, and I had to go and comfort the parents. And some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time,” Obama said to an applause.

“You know, without much, if any, regulation, they can buy it over the internet, they can buy machine guns. And for me, having to speak to parents who have lost a child, just two days or a day after it had happened, and not being able to assure them that that would change, that we would fix this — I couldn’t bring their children back, but I couldn’t even promise them that we would change the law so this didn’t happen to somebody else’s children,” he said.
