Last I checked, Indiana was in U.S. & subject to all federal laws

To The Daily Sun,

Can any real Democrat, not of Marxist-socialist ideology, please explain to me why you still support Hillary Clinton and respect Obama, after everyone has seen the never-ending catalog of deception and lies perpetrated by these people for years now? No intelligent person who has payed even minimal attention can deny this truth. Let me address just one of the multitude of lies.

Recently, on national TV, Obama held a "town hall meeting." It was by invitation only, which pretty much belies its town hall description, and when the moderator asked why he, the president, wouldn't meet with the NRA to discuss his gun control agenda, the president said he would but only if the discussion was based on "real facts."

Now that begs the question of who's facts because just moments later Obama asserted that Chicago, "a city he is very proud of," was being flooded with guns purchased across the boarder in Indiana because there were lax gun controls in that state. No background checks were necessary there, automatic weapons were easily attained there at gun shows and from dealers. Okay, let's be clear here, Indiana is subject to the same federal law on background checks as is every other of the 49 other states. Additionally, there is absolutely no exception for any gun show in Indiana or anywhere else in the U.S. What's more, automatic weapons (machine guns) are covered by a federal law passed in 1934, so very few people can even have one without a very special license give out by the BATF after an intensive (means more then normal) background check.

I now challenge anyone to dispute these facts with documentary evidence that Obama wasn't flat out lying. In other words, show me the federal law that exempts Indiana or any other state, or business or venue from following federal background check requirements.

Please note. Hillary Clinton is spreading the same kind of deceitful, misleading information. She has not presented one new idea, thought, or proposal that would have or could have prevented any mass shooting in the past twenty years. Her entire rhetoric involves a generalized "tighten gun controls and close loopholes" (which do not exist). Fact is we have an abundance of gun laws that the federal government chooses not to enforce.

I believe it was MIT PhD Professor Gruber, designer of the ACA, who on the subject of Obamacare said if the American people were not as stupid and lazy as they are, we could never have gotten the ACA passed. I think this description also explains why leftist politicians are able to convince so many people that "gun control" is actually a real need instead of vast distraction from real national needs and concerns.
