Barack Obama Just Got This Bad News

Barack Obama has made eroding the Second Amendment a cornerstone of his second term.

He’s pushed for a national gun registration database, and he has circumvented Congress to impose gun control by executive fiat.

But despite his gun control push, the American people have delivered him really bad news.

According to new data, gun ownership and concealed carry permits are up among minorities and women.

Liberals preach it as gospel that minorities and women are across-the-board progressives who oppose everything conservative.

But the National Interest reports:

“A study by the Crime Prevention Research Center earlier this month found concealed-carry permits have boomed nationally, but particularly among women and minorities. “In eight states where we have data by gender, since 2012 the number of permits has increased by 161 percent for women and by 85 percent for men,” the report says.

 

From 2007 through 2015, concealed-carry permits issued by state and local governments increased about 75 percent faster among nonwhites than whites, according to the report.

Okafor noted that those living in the inner city “are the most likely to benefit” from self-defense.

 

“A lot of minority homes didn’t have father figures growing up,” Okafor told The Daily Signal. “The right to bear arms is a way to protect our community. Every weekend people are dying in cities riddled with gun control.”

 

Okafor said increasing gun ownership could mark a political shift among both women and minorities away from pro-gun control Democrats to pro-gun rights Republicans in the longer term.”

It also calls into question Hillary and the Democrats decision to try and make the election a referendum on gun rights.

Democrats believe they can mobilize minorities and millennials – who largely lean left – to turn out and vote on the sole issue of gun control.

But this new data could blow that theory out of the water.

What makes the news even worse for Democrats is that gun owners are usually loyal, single issue voters.

Even though some polls have shown an uptick in support for gun control, gun owners have greater voting intensity, meaning they vote based on that issue.

Increasing rates of firearm ownership among women and minorities – two groups thought to be locked into the Democrat camp – could drive a wedge between liberal politicians and their constituents.

    These anti-gun morons will only get my gun when they pry it from my cold dead hand, but I tell you one thing, I will take as many of them as I can before they can take it.

    Seems Barry Boy has been the best gun salesman the firearms industry ever had…

    The Left keeps saying that the number of gun owners keeps going down but last year was the biggest year for gun sales yet. This past June was the highest ever in a month, 400,000 guns were sold that month.
    The poll itself is defective. Basically people are called and asked if they own guns. As if any one who does is actually going to tell them. Don’t be a shmuck. The answer is always NO!

    Obama, it is rumored, is ready to take Killery’s place if she is indicted before the election. This is unconstitutional, but when has that ever stopped him? I really wish that Congress would impeach him and prosecute Killery to the fullest extent of the law .. like life in prison w/o the possibility of parole.

    The more gun control in states, the more criminality. The biggest criminals in the US and UK are in bed with the governments, so this makes the pressure for gun control from governments, extremely worrying. When the Nazis in Germany took away the people’s guns, they began rounding up the Jews. Not before but after taking away their right to own guns.

    seems the only base democrats have left are criminals and illegals , but seeing how they can’t vote they don’t do them no good , that’s why they don’t want voter id , so they can sneak them in to vote

  • barbarakelly

    Ir is about time that he got bad news———I want it to keep on coming. I want to see him fall flat on his face.!!!!!!

    Does Obama actually think a “GUN LAW” will get rid of guns, rifles, pistols, etc.??? If someone wants a gun they will get a gun. Making a ridiculous law will only perpetuate BLACK MARKET GUN SALES & crimes will increase. This is a fact, take that to the bank!!

  • annarose13

    This will haunt me forever, How the Hell did the most dishonest woman in politics & the worst failure as a leader EVER reach positions of power?? May the next election show America we still have hope, people who care & become the great country we once were.

    If they attempt to take the guns away from the law abiding citizens in this country, there will be an all out war! People in this country have the right to bare arms. The house and Senate should have impeached him years ago. He bypasses everything, yet they do nothing. Are they afraid of him? I am so ashamed of these men and women for not stopping him. God please intervene in this matter. We all need to pray to God to stop this man and Hillary Clinton. We don’t need them we need God!!!!
