Barack Obama says he wants to ban more classifications of firearms because he  wants to keep Americans safe from gun crime.

Do you believe it?

I don’t.

I don’t believe Obama cares a whit about the safety of the American people – and I think I can prove it.

First of all, the statistics Obama ignores demonstrate conclusively that  firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens actually saves lives. It’s not  even a close call. This fact is illustrated further by the fact that the urban  areas that have outright banned firearms possession have become virtual shooting  galleries, with more Americans being killed in Chicago than in Iraq and  Afghanistan combined.

All that has been said before – not frequently enough, of course – but the  evidence is in on the absolute need for firearms in the hands of American  citizens if we are to remain a free and secure people.

But let me give you the indisputable proof that Obama is lying about his  concerns for the safety and well-being of the American people.

What did his administration do last week in response to the sequestration  budget cuts he himself proposed if an agreement could not be reached with  Republicans to raise taxes?

Without any reason whatsoever, other than to punish American citizens and put  them at risk of life and limb, his Department of Homeland Security pre-emptively  released thousands of illegal-alien criminals from detention. He did this like a  willful child who didn’t get his way – even though he got exactly what he asked  for, as reporter Bob Woodward has documented.

Now what happens when you release illegal-alien criminals onto the streets of  America with no tracking, no monitoring, no oversight, no paperwork? These are  not just illegal aliens who came to America looking for work. They are illegal  aliens who broke into the country and committed serious crimes. Obama’s DHS gave  them get-out-of-jail-free cards.

Does that sound like the act of someone who cares about the safety and  welfare of American citizens?

Does it make sense to disarm American citizens in the wake of actions like  that?

When police chiefs are warning Americans to arm themselves because their  departments no longer have the resources to provide adequate protection to  citizens, is this a responsible action by a caring president?

Of course not.

To top it off, local officials offered to provide facilities to hold those  illegal-alien criminals – at no cost to the federal government. Arizona Sheriff  Joe Arpaio told DHS he’d take those prisoners free of charge and house them at  his Tent City.

“I’ll take them,” he said. “I have room in my tents. I would be happy to have  them – and I wouldn’t even charge them. I would love to take them in the tents.”

Like me, Arpaio doesn’t buy the Obama administration’s story that this move  was done to cut spending.

He said: “I am always suspicious when the government that has billions of  dollars has to say, ‘We are going to release [illegal immigrants] because of  budget problems.’ I’m wary of that. They’re utilizing a budget so-called crisis  as the reason to kick these people loose. I do have a concern about that.”

Obama makes a show of compassion for average Americans, but that’s all it is – sheer demagoguery. I’m convinced his efforts along these lines are  specifically designed to create chaos, not save lives.

It’s like his former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, once said: “Never let a  good crisis go to waste.” Obama doesn’t just wait for crises to happen. He  creates them and exploits them for maximum political advantage.
