Obama tells veggie tales to college kids . . . and scary stories about people who want machine guns in bars!

A student asked President Obama at a Columbia, S.C. town hall meeting Friday about gun control. As often happens when he doesn’t have a script to rely on, Obama threw caution to the wind and set the truth to the side.

He suggested to the event, hosted by Benedict College, that it was easier to buy a gun than it was to buy a book or a fresh vegetable.

“As long as you can go on into some neighborhoods, and it’s easier for you to buy a firearm than it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable,” Obama claimed. “As long as that’s the case, we’re going to continue to see unnecessary violence.”

People on Twitter had a field day with that one.

Breitbart News White House correspondent Charlie Spiering was tweeting the president’s remarks at the event, and thought that one was so far out in left field it deserved an exclamation point.

Soon others joined in:

Every time anyone purchases a firearm, they have to complete the 6-page ATF Firearms Transactions Record, have their ID checked and wait while the dealer phones the information in to comply with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

I never had to do that to buy a bag of green beans — but then again, maybe I’ve been lucky.
