Obama Forgives 107 Gun Felons Amid Calls for Stricter Gun Control

Despotic regimes always employ criminals and misfits as force multipliers against law abiding citizens.

President Barack Obama has forgiven 107 federal inmates who were convicted of gun crimes during his administration while at the same time pushing for stricter gun controls, according to a story in The Washington Times.

According to the Times report, of those 107 who were either pardoned or had their sentences commuted, their dealings with a gun included:

  • Using firearms while dealing drugs;
  • Carried firearms despite felony convictions;
  • Caught lying to gun dealers;
  • Carrying firearms with registration numbers removed.

Yet this is the President who repeatedly calls for reform to keep guns out of the wrong hands.

“This is the most incredible hypocrisy,” Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told the Times. “The president has commuted the sentences of dangerous criminals who were convicted of gun-related charges. But then, he does everything in his power to block law-abiding gun owners from purchasing firearms.”

The Times reports Obama has forgiven a total north of 600 federal inmates, more than his nine predecessors combined. And just last week gave this explanation as to why.

“Our focus really has been on people who we think were overcharged and people who we do not believe have a propensity towards violence,” the Times quoted Obama.

Apparently 107 felons who carried guns while selling drugs don’t count as having a propensity for violence.

“On one hand, the Obama administration is attempting to limit law-abiding Americans from exercising their Second Amendment right and protecting themselves from harm,” Sen. Richard C. Shelby, R-Ala., told the Times. “On the other hand, the president will let criminals with firearm-related offenses off easy.”
