Skip to comments.Obama Claims AR-15 is a "Fully Automatic" Rifle

It has been widely reported that the killer in the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut last year was a semi-automatic AR-15 stolen from its rightful owner. In fact, it was for precisely that reason that President Obama said that gun control will be a "central issue" of his last four years in office.
But on Thursday, reports began circulating that at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser in San Francisco on Wednesday, Obama claimed that the AR-15 used in the Connecticut crime was a fully-automatic firearm. At first, we wondered if the reports were accurate, or whether the president might have had a slip of the tongue.
The president was quoted as saying: "Now, over the next couple of months, we've got a couple of issues: gun control. I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don't have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly."
However, that is precisely what Obama said, as verified by the transcript of his speech, posted on the White House's website.
On top of Rep. Diana DeGette's (D-Colo.) claim the day before (see related article above), that once rounds are fired from a magazine, the magazine becomes inoperable, and similarly foolish statements by other anti-gun legislation sponsors, we are left wondering whether anyone at the core of the anti-gun campaign in Washington, D.C., knows which end of a gun is up.
Idiot. And the less informed will buy into his idiocy.
He’s the most intelligent person in the world. Remember? What a buffoon. Also a pathological liar and deceiver.
It doesn’t matter because the “Big Lie” is already in place. Add to that a sycophantic media and 3/4 of the population who don’t know any better.
hussein is obviously ignorant regarding anything to do with firearms. Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is the only issue he is grossly ill-informed about. Even scarier, he won’t admit, even to himself, that he is wildly unqualified for his position due to his rampant ignorance.
> ...Also a pathological liar and deceiver.
He’s a Muslim and the Islamic principle of taqiyya instructs him to lie.
Aw shucks, little barry bastard boy lis a liar, first and always. He wouldn’t need to understand ARs to lie about them for his leftist globalist oligarchical agenda.
He also claims to be a Constitutional law professor, an American who loves his country, a heterosexual and the list of lies goes on. So why would we ever expect anything but lies from him?
even worse than that is no republican is tellign hte press that he wants to ban things he doesn’t even know about- the republicans could be playing htis up BIG TIME portraying him as ban happy, and exploitive of tradgedy- but nope- per usual- there’s a deafening silence from the right-
What say you? I have a photo put out by Obama enablers that shows him shooting skeet or was it trap. Whatever he was shooting there seemed to be something askew about the shouldering but if the photo is real why can’t 50+or- of the population believe his gun experience is extensive?
Barack the Kenyan wouldn’t know a “fully automatic” rifle if one jumped up and bit him on the @$$.
“Barack the Kenyan wouldnt know a fully automatic rifle if one jumped up and bit him on the @$$.”
He would not know ANY rifle from a BB gun.
0bama lies. It’s how he rolls.
0bama relies on the ignorance of the sheep.
done on purpose to get the low info voters and low info media to repeat the lie and defend it with their mindless repeat bleating.
The truth no longer matters, my friend.
it matters to us.
I still say it could’ve been a Freudian slip. There’s kits for modifying a legal Bushmaster to an illegal full auto. Did anybody see the weapon yet? I haven’t. What if the whole campaign to ban the scary semi-auto is based on a lie? Well, I mean besides all the other lies, of course. Just sayin ...
