Just hours after the tragic shooting in a South Carolina church, President Barack Obama resumed his fanatical war on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.

“Now’s the time for mourning and for healing, but let’s be clear — at some point we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries,” Obama said.

Really?  Has the President forgotten just some of the foreign massacres that have taken place during his presidency — shootings that claimed far more lives than the nine which were tragically lost in South Carolina?  How about:

* The attacks from earlier this year — which began at Charlie Hebdo in Paris and continued for 48 hours around the region — that resulted in 17 people being murdered;

* Or the Anders Breivik murders in Norway in 2011 where 77 people were murdered — 69 of them with firearms;

* Or the Derrick Bird shootings in Cumbria, England that left 12 people dead in 2010.

In each of these cases, the armed perpetrators ignored strict gun control laws in acquiring and carrying their weapons.

One of the biggest problems at South Carolina church is that the potential victims were disarmed by law.

In the Palmetto State, a concealed carry permit holder can carry in places of worship with permission from a church official.  Unfortunately, the pastor was an anti-gun activist.  As a state senator, the Pastor had voted against concealed carry.

But the President completely misses all of this.  He ignores the fact that this was yet another example where a massacre took place in a Gun Free Zone.

“We don’t have all the facts, but we do know that, once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun,” Obama said.

To the contrary, armed civilians have actually prevented several mass shootings from occurring — and some of them in churches.  Consider:

* This past New Year’s Eve, a Florida pastor prevented a possible mass shooting at his church — and saved the lives of several men, women and children — when he used his firearm to incapacitate a shooter.

* In the President’s home city of Chicago, an Uber driver used his concealed firearm this year to stop a gunman who was firing into a crowd of people.  The Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn praised the Uber driver for “acting in self-defense and in the defense of others.”

* In March, police credited a concealed carrier with saving several lives, including those of children, in a Philadelphia barber shop.

* And in years past, attempted massacres were brought to a screeching halt at churches in South Africa and Colorado, solely because there were concealed carriers in the service who were able to shoot back against armed thugs.

No wonder that almost 90% of police in America believe that the way to reduce casualties in mass shootings is to allow citizens to carry firearms concealed.

The President wants to blame an inanimate object — the gun.  But that just deflects blame away from the real culprit:  gun control policies that leave people defenseless in the face of evil perpetrators who are never effectively prevented from acquiring weapons.
