Obama seems to be traversing the country making untrue or inane statements about firearms.
First he told Colorado policemen that Michelle had said she might want a gun if she lived on a farm in Iowa. Never mind that Iowans are overwhelmingly hard-working, law-abiding, peaceful, salt of the earth people. And never mind that Barack and Michelle call the gun-free but killing-filled zone, the Windy City home. And never mind that the Obamas have 24/7 fully-armed security detail, so of course neither will ever personally need to own a gun.
Then Wednesday night, at a DCCC fundraiser in San Francisco, the president told the attendees that the Newtown shooter had mowed down those school children with a full-auto weapon. From the WH transcript:
Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues: gun control. (Applause.) I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon — by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.

However, the Connecticut state attorney and prosecutor is on record stating:
Lanza killed all 26 victims inside Sandy Hook Elementary School with a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10 mm handgun. He says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster.
Both the rifle and the Glock are semi-autos, not fully-automatic.
We can only come to one of 2 conclusions: either Obama doesn’t know guns or he lied to lend credence to his agenda of more control to the pandering supporters at the fundraiser by the bay.
