OBAMA BLAMES AMERICA FOR MEXICO’S GUN VIOLENCE
Which country is Barack Obama President of again? I’m a little confused on this. I mean, a U.S. President is, after all, tasked with protecting the rights of Americans. How does a guy who blames Americans for violent actions of another country and calls for limitations on American rights actually upholding his oath to office?

“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.
It’s also interesting that Obama is in Mexico calling for immigration reform.
Interesting tactic for a guy who is supposed to be representing Americans.
