i don't want to get off in the weeds, but the root issue here is gun control. there are only a few reasons why Michelle Obama would have said something like this..
1 she was misinformed.. i highly doubt this. she has access to information that none of us have.
2 she was hoping people that are listening are not informed and that she can just get in a little propaganda.. hoping that the drones out here in the world don't know that the gun used in this Honorable Crime..was a revolver.
3 she doesn't know the difference between a revolver and a automatic weapon.. this is concerning because her and her husband are campaigning for more gun control.. and if they dont know the difference between a revolver and and automatic weapon, then I think they are not qualified to make or suggest policy on gun control. It s hard for me to believe that she doesn't know the differences, they are surrounded by cops and security and secret service men all day everyday..what was used is a revolver, she jumped over semi automatic and went right for automatic weapon..
in my book all guns are automatic in that you pull the trigger and they automatically go off..
getting on my soap box now...
one last thing.. she will never ever ever be asked to account for this.. the Obamas are never ever asked hard questions. the media seems to be more interested in whats on the presidents ipod, then what he is willing to compromise on to get Washington moving forward. hes the leader, leaders lead.. and good leaders know how to compromise. The GOP wants stuff, the DEMS want stuff.. its his JOB to find a compromise.
k.. im off my soap box :)
