Barack Obama Lies About U.S. Gun Laws in a Speech in Brazil

Published

on

Former US President Barack Obama bashed American gun laws at a conference in Brazil.

During a speech at the VTEX Day digital conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil the former president expressed sorrow about the Sandy Hook massacre.

Obama stated, “The most difficult day that I’ve had, was the day where there was a shooting at a school. Uh, where, 20 small children were shot, as well as some teachers.”

Afterwards, he said that “I had to go and comfort the parents.”

The 44th president went on to say that anyone can buy any type of gun with virtually no regulation, and then asserted that machine guns can be bought over the internet.

Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense,” Obama declared. “Anybody can buy any weapon any time — without much if any regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns.

Obama lamented how he was unable to pass gun control while in office.

“For me, having to speak to parents who have lost a child, just two days, or a day, after it happened, uh, and not being able to assure them that, um, that would change, that we would fix this,” he said. “I couldn’t bring the children back, but I couldn’t even, uh, promise them that we would change the laws so that this wouldn’t happen to somebody else’s children.”

Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the Western hemisphere and has very stringent gun control laws.

Although America has much laxer gun laws than Brazil, acquiring guns in America is no cakewalk. One must go through a background check, and depending on the state an individual lives in, you could potentially have to acquire a license and be fingerprinted to exercise an activity that is supposedly a right.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential

Published

on

On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.

Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.

This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.

In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.

A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.

They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”

A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.

One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”

The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.

The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”

He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”

The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.

It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
