Just moments ago, liberal American President Barack Obama, with ratings at an all time low, reiterated his call for strict gun control measures in the wake of the mass shooting this afternoon in San Bernardino, California.

According to CNN, Obama made his demand for gun control reforms only minutes after the shootings occurred.  Obama said that he wants such violent episodes to be “rare as opposed to normal.”

Speaking to CBS News moments after news broke of the shooting, Obama called for “common sense gun safety laws” and urged lawmakers to pass a law to prevent individuals on the “No Fly List” who are barred from boarding commercial flights from legally purchasing firearms, CNN reports.

However, conservative proponents of the 2nd Amendment say that Obama is unfairly capitalizing on another tragedy to force the issue of gun control upon the American people.

Some 2nd Amendment supporters argue that such incidents of violence should allow more Americans to carry legal firearms to prevent homicidal maniacs from ransacking our nation.

This pundit believes Mr. Obama is completely wrong in his call for stricter gun control measures and that the U.S. Constitution is clear that “the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

I personally believe that every law-abiding American citizen should be able to possess a legal firearm of his or her choosing to protect themselves and believe in the concepts of “open carry” that refer to the practice of “openly carrying” a firearm in public.

I also believe the U.S. Constitution allows for the practice of “concealed carry,” where firearms which cannot be seen by the casual observer may be carried by a law-abiding America for the protection of himself and his family.

Mr. Obama should be ashamed of himself for again using the tragedy of another open shooter scenario to push his statist and collectivist gun control measures that are clearly contrary to the U.S. Constitution.

Stand for your right to keep and bear arms because no one else will.

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
