but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon — by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.
Whoa, bold added to highlight that comment, which Obama actually stopped and corrected himself to make. Assuming he wasn't just lying for politics sake, or isn't an idiot (he said he shoots skeet all the time), does this mean he has been keeping things from the public? For instance, CBS has this story today:
A Connecticut shop that sold a gun to Nancy Lanza, the Newtown school shooter's mother, has lost its federal firearms license. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives revoked the license of Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor in December 2012. The agency didn't say why.While there are many reasons the Feds might pull a firearms license it becomes a little weird considering it was the shop Nancy Lanza visited with the action being announced immediately before the president makes a trip to Hartford (with the ink not yet dry on Connecticut's new gun laws) just as he told a crowd that Lanza used a machine gun at Sandy Hook. It begs some explanation.
