President Barack Obama isn’t welcome in Roseburg, Oregon.
The publisher of the Roseburg Beacon, a publication serving the area where Oregon’s Umpqua Community College mass shooting took place last Thursday, said that the president would not be welcome there after he politicized the tragedy in a call for gun control.
David Jaques said that because Obama “has no connection with this community,” it would be “very inappropriate and … disrespectful to the families” of the victims to make an appearance there to further politicize the event.
While authorities were still in the process of containing the scene and identifying the bodies, the president implied “he single-handedly could have prevented this if Congress would have listened to him,” Jaques told a reporter.
Any appearance there would be nothing more than a “campaign stop” to push an agenda “to take away Americans’ right to own firearms.”
“It shows not only a total disdain and disregard for our Constitution, but our very citizens, but especially those of us right here in Douglas county,” he said, adding, “We believe in the Second Amendment. We believe in the whole Constitution.”
