Obama Caught LYING to Group of Police Chiefs

Obama Caught LYING to Group of Police Chiefs

President Obama gave a speech to the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago on Tuesday. He told police that due to lack of gun control, they were in danger. He then said that the high crime rate in Chicago would be lower with more gun control.

He said, “In states with high gun ownership, police officers are three times more likely to be murdered than in states with low gun ownership. So you know, more guns on the street do not make you or your community safer.”

Hmmm… Too bad that’s a huge lie.

Western Journalism reported:

Enter some facts: Gun ownership in America is at a record high. However, contrary to what the president might want one to believe, officers killed on duty dropped 38 percent from last year.

Obama also sought to use numbers to show the extent of gun violence by stating that since September 11, 2001, 400,000 people have died by guns.

Context is important here.

“In 1970, there were about 4 violent crimes per 1,000 Americans. In 2014, there were 3.75 violent crimes per 1,000 Americans. America is essentially as safe today as when VW Beetles ruled the road and Simon and Garfunkel ruled the radio,” Bob Owens wrote on Bearing Arms.

“Barack Obama is blatantly fabricating a non-existent crisis in order to infringe upon our most basic and cherished rights,” Owens concluded.

Although Obama remained fixated on guns as the greatest danger to police, others were more focused upon the so-called “YouTube effect” in which a video shows a police officer in an unfavorable light and it goes viral. This is followed by a liberal knee-jerk chorus of attacks on the police, often including the White House.
