I’ve just watched this extraordinary clip of Barack Obama’s speech in Mexico City earlier today, where the president blames the United States for the out of control gun violence in Mexico, a frankly ludicrous assertion. RealClear Politics has a partial transcript:
“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.
