In the nimble rhetoric of President Obama, America is beset by rampant violence for which gun control is the only answer.
On Tuesday, he delivered a speech at the annual conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago where he told police that they themselves are in danger because of the high availability of guns. He claimed that the rise in crime must be cured through gun control.
“In states with high gun ownership, police officers are three times more likely to be murdered than in states with low gun ownership. So you know, more guns on the street do not make you or your community safer,” he said.
Enter some facts: Gun ownership in America is at a record high. However, contrary to what the president might want one to believe, officers killed on duty dropped 38 percent from last year.
Obama also sought to use numbers to show the extent of gun violence by stating that since September 11, 2001, 400,000 people have died by guns.
