He fails to understand.
Why are so many people doing it?
On December 10, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said it is “tragic” that Americans are pouring into gun stores to buy weapons because America is already “awash in guns.”
According to the Washington Times, Earnest was speaking in light of recent high-profile shootings and the San Bernardino terror attack when he said, “The more that we see this kind of violence on our streets, the more people go out and buy guns. That is both ironic and tragic.”
In some cases these are individuals who believe that they need to buy a gun so that they can better protect themselves. In some cases because it’s Black Friday, they probably are going and purchasing a gift for a friend or a loved one who is a gun enthusiast. I’m just pointing out that there are already an astonishing number of guns on the streets of America and far too many innocent Americans who are being killed by them.
Earnest indicated that he does not know why the American people are so drawn to guns, but he said it is “tragic” that people go out and purchase them in response to incidents like the San Bernardino attack.
Hey Josh, you might wanna pass this along to your Boss:
People aren’t buying guns in response to what happened in San Bernardino.
They’re buying guns because of what your boss said, (and always says) in response to these mass shootings.
Pretty ironic and tragic neither of you guys get it.
