President Obama Says it is “Easier to Buy a Gun Than Vegetables”

On March 6, President Obama delivered remarks on the one-year anniversary of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative at a Town Hall at St. Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina. In a Q&A session approximately one hour and seven minutes into the presentation, the president began demonstrating his complete command of the nation’s gun laws in his folksy, off-the-cuff, fluent speaking style.

White House Claims the AR-15 Ammo Ban is Only to Protect Cops

White House press secretary Josh Earnest called the purposed ban on M855 AR-15 ammo a “common-sense step” in a press conference. Earnest said the reason behind the ban is to protect members of law enforcement, yet, no one can produce any evidence that a green-tipped .223 or 5.56mm NATO round has ever been used to shoot at a police officer from a pistol. With this new statement from Washington, many of us, along with pro-gun organizations believe the ban on M855 ammo is backdoor gun control. Read the latest news on the M855 ammo ban to find out why.
