Perkins Blames Obama For Shooting
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council says President Obama’s policies led to the Oregon shooting.
President Obama wasn’t only wrong about the cause of mass shootings, Perkins said, he is also possibly to blame for them.
“Could the religious hostility that the president and his policies have fostered have something to do with this?” Perkins said, citing the mixed reports that the UCC shooter specifically targeted Christians. “Could his policies that have pushed us away from family formation and from marriage have something to do with the moral implosion that’s taking place in our country? Could the president’s lawlessness —remember, he’s the president who had an attorney general who was in contempt of Congress; Lois Lerner who plead the Fifth because she didn’t want to tell about how they were using the IRS to target conservatives and release confidential information; didn’t want to talk about running guns in Mexico that took the lives of U.S. Border Patrol agents — I think the president’s priorities are misplaced. But he’s trying to seize this, in my opinion, trying to use this to advance his anti-Second Amendment political agenda.”
