Taya Kyle, the widow of Chris Kyle, Navy Seal and subject of the movie “American Sniper,” asked President Obama recently why his administration wasn’t more optimistic about the murder rate being at an all-time low.
After a lengthy, rambling response, Mr. Obama concluded that many people who “are buying guns online” have felony records. But as The Federalist notes;
The problem is that it’s already illegal for felons to purchase guns, nor can anyone purchase a gun from a website without first completing a background check.
Obama’s executive actions won’t make felons “purchasing guns online” any more illegal than it already is. From Obama’s response, it sounds like he knows stricter gun laws won’t be able to stop the criminals who are purchasing the most dangerous types of weapons.
