So two guys who constantly lie about gun use meet privately in an unannounced White House meeting to try and pull some backdoor “executive action” on guns, despite the resistance of Americans to their insane views of the Second Amendment. What could possibly go wrong? If their stance was so popular, why not make it public?
President Obama on Wednesday met with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ally of the White House on gun control.
The meeting, which was not on the president’s public schedule, comes as he is weighing new executive action on guns in response to a series of mass shootings that have marred his presidency.
Obama huddled with Bloomberg “as part of the administration’s continuing push to address gun violence in America,” the White House said in a statement.
“The two discussed ways to keep guns out of the hands of those who should not have access to them and what more could be done at the state and local level to help address gun violence in America,” the White House added.
Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, a close Obama confidante who has spearheaded the White House’s gun-control push, also attended the meeting.
Obama has met with a number of high-profile gun control advocates in recent weeks as the White House scrambles to finalize its new proposals.
Last week, Obama invited former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly to the White House to discuss the issue.
Giffords, who survived a gunshot wound to the head during a 2011 shooting at an event in her district, now runs a political action committee to push for stronger gun laws.
Bloomberg runs a similar organization, known as Everytown for Gun Safety.
A group that has been largely discredited for constantly making up bogus gun statistics. Speaking of discredited nonsense:
The two leaders also discussed climate change, as Obama focuses on implementing the U.S. commitments made in the Paris climate deal.
Americans don’t care about non-existent “climate change” either.
