We are only just learning about the injustices committed by Obama’s DOJ. It’s incredible to think that the one department devoted to carrying out justice in our country was so abused and misused.
Obama’s Justice Department carried out a slush fund, extorting cash from companies to give to liberal activist groups. We know that under Attorney General Lorretta Lynch, they pressured the FBI to drop Hillary Clinton’s email case.
Now it has been discovered that so-called gun control Obama was surprisingly lenient when it came to enforcing gun laws. Why? The reason will turn your stomach.
From The Daily Caller:
More than 100,000 convicted felons or other “prohibited persons” tried to buy guns each year during President Barack Obama’s administration by lying on their applications, but the Justice Department only considered prosecuting about 30 to 40 people each year, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.
The Obama administration may have publicly aligned itself with anti-gun activists, but it consistently turned a blind eye to prosecute known criminals who tried to buy guns.
A June 2016 Justice Department Inspector General’s report revealed that between 2008 and 2015 the U.S. Attorneys office considered prosecuting “less than 32 people per year” for lying on form 4473, the federal application to buy guns.
You might be confused about this. Why would the Justice Department, under Obama, do such a poor job of enforcing gun laws they claimed were needed? When you think about it for a little bit, the motive becomes clear.
Democrats hate the Second Amendment. They want all guns taken from law-abiding citizens. But they can’t do that openly. So they need more gun-related crime to happen, to justify passing more gun control laws.
Whenever there’s a shooting, what do they do? Call for more gun control.
But if the current laws were actually enforced, then there would be fewer gun-related crimes and no need for more laws that weaken the Second Amendment.
Obama’s Justice Department deliberately neglected to prosecute these violations, in the hopes that criminals would get more guns. That led to more gun violence, which is what they wanted all along. Then liberals in D.C. had an excuse to push for even more gun control.
It’s a vile and disgusting scheme, one that could have worked for decades, had Hillary won the White House.
