Obama: The Second Amendment Only Applies to Al-Qaeda
President pushed to disarm Americans on the same day he approved arming al-Qaeda
September 17, 2013
President Barack Obama accelerated firearm shipments to al-Qaeda on the very same day he demanded more gun control in the wake of the D.C. Navy Yard shooting.
Obama waived a provision in federal law specifically designed to keep the U.S. government from supplying firearms to terrorists such as al-Qaeda, according to the Washington Examiner.
Citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, the president declared Monday that he would “waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction.”
No longer will Obama need to rely on the CIA to give free guns to Islamic extremists in Syria; now he will make the transfers openly with this “transparent government” initiative.
On the same day as his overt approval for arms to al-Qaeda, Obama announced that he is drafting executive orders for more gun control.
“We have gone about implementing the executive actions that were part of the president’s plan to take action to reduce gun violence,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said after the Navy Yard shooting. “Obviously, he continues to support measures taken by Congress — that could be taken by Congress to reduce gun violence in a common-sense way, like improving our background-check system.”
