Did Obama really just tell rich Hollywood libs ‘it’s easier to buy a gun than buy a book?’

Obama shootingWhile speaking to a room of rich, Hollywood liberals at a fundraiser in Los Angeles on Saturday, President Obama once again resorted to hyperbole while calling for more gun control, saying that “it is easier to buy a gun than a book” in America.

Speaking to a group of about 200 Democrat donors in upscale Pacific Palisades, Obama bemoaned “gun violence” in the wake of recent mass shootings, arguing that stricter gun-control laws would somehow help reduce the number of criminals willing to use firearms, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s not just mass shootings,” Obama told the group. “It is the daily shootings that take place in cities across America. It is easier to buy a gun than buy a book.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Obama was trying to draw attention to the plight of poor urban neighborhoods which he believes suffer from a lack of bookstores, but are overwhelmed by “gun violence.”

“Poor urban neighborhoods” such as those found in his hometown, gun-control-utopia of Chicago, where bookstores are prolific, but not a single gun store can be found.

The fundraiser – which included actor Jamie Foxx – was one of three high-dollar fundraisers Obama attended in Los Angeles over the weekend, and was another opportunity for the president to campaign for more gun control in America.

“What’s true on gun violence is true on every issue that matters to you,” he argued, saying that the left and the right “have a different vision of what America can look like.”

He can say that again. After all, he’s trying to impose the same gun-control schemes on America that are already on the books in crime-riddled urban communities throughout the nation.

Ostensibly, Obama’s comparison between buying books and guns was in reference to illegally acquired guns, given that legal guns require a federal background check, a photo ID, and occasionally a waiting period… All of which seems to make purchasing a firearm slightly more difficult than wandering into a bookstore, or downloading an e-book online.

But if buying a gun is really easier than buying a book in gun-control meccas like Chicago (which is still doubtful, given the current pace of e-book technology and used book stores), it seems obvious that all those anti-gun laws are pretty useless in curbing “gun violence.”

So why impose them on the rest of America?

    He must think that because of his lackluster book sales as compared to gun and ammo sales. Fact is, like Hillary’s book, no one wants his either…
