Obama blaming “homegrown extremism” and gun laws
Orlando shooter was pledged to ISIS and had firearms licenses.
Despite the evidence that ‘gun control’ does not work, Obama is trying to restrict the 2nd Amendment more before he leaves office. White House says Gunman was not told to commit his horrible crime by ISIS, blames “homegrown extremism”. We have proven that is a LIE.
President Barack Obama escalated his call that dangerous people not be allowed to obtain high-powered weapons Monday, saying the country needs more “soul-searching” a day after a gunman used a legally purchased firearms to kill 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando.
In remarks in the Oval Office, Obama said the attack was an example of “home-grown extremism” that wasn’t carried out at the specific direction of ISIS. He was speaking after receiving a briefing from top law enforcement officials, including FBI Director James Comey.
Comey himself delivered a statement to reporters after the meeting, reiterating the President’s position that the individual appeared to be isolated from but inspired by overseas terrorism.
“There are strong indications of radicalization by this killer and of potential inspiration by foreign terrorist organizations,” Comey said, adding that he would try not to use the shooter’s name. “So far, we see no indication that this was a plot directed from outside the United States and we see no indication that he was part of any kind of network.”
