Trump Hides Behind Twitter: Blames Dems For Not Passing Gun Laws Under Obama

Donald Trump did what he knows best and took to Twitter on Saturday to blame Democrats for not passing stricter gun laws during the Obama administration.

Trump tweeted out Saturday blaming Democrats for both gun laws and DACA:

“Just like they don’t want to solve the DACA problem, why didn’t the Democrats pass gun control legislation when they had both the House & Senate during the Obama Administration. Because they didn’t want to, and now they just talk!”

There are many things wrong with Trump’s tweet.

He has not said a thing about gun control following the tragic shooting that took place in Florida this week that left 17 people dead. He called the alleged shooter “mentally disturbed.”

Trump also signed a bill last year repealing an Obama-era regulation that made it harder for people with mental illnesses to purchase guns.

Former President Barack Obama tried pushing for stricter gun laws but was constantly denied by Republicans.

Following the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in 2012, Obama announced a series of executive actions intended to strengthen gun control.

Trump needs to stop pointing fingers and do something. He has no excuse and can’t blame Democrats because Republicans have control of every branch of government. If stricter gun laws aren’t passed soon, Republicans will be the ones to blame.
