President Obama offers bizarre lie at Dallas memorial ‘It’s easier for a teenager to get his hands on a Glock than a computer’ or ‘book’

During his speech at the memorial service in Dallas for murdered police officers, President Barack Obama lamented that his words have little power to effect change, then proceeded to bizarre lies about guns: “It’s easier for a teenager to get his hands on a Glock than a computer…or even a book!”

The complete quote is at the bottom.

“I’ve seen how inadequate words can be in bringing about lasting change,” Obama said. “I’ve seen how inadequate my own words have been.”

The hyperbolic statement stands in stark contrast against federal law which makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to legally purchase or possess a handgun or handgun ammunition. Moreoever, it’s also against federal law for anyone to sell or deliver a handgun to anyone the seller reasonably believes is under the age of 18.

Glenn Beck took time on his show to say he would have wanted his body rolled out of the service if that was said at his funeral.

Check out a few comments on twitter:

More of the same:

Quote: “We’ve chosen to underinvest in decent schools,” he said. “We allow poverty to fester, so that entire neighborhoods offer no possibility of gainful employment. We’ve refused to fund mental health programs. We flood communities with so many guns it’s easier for a teen to get his hands on a Glock than get a computer or a book.”

The service at Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas was in honor of Dallas Police Sgt. Michael Smith, 55; Dallas Police Senior Cpl. Lorne Ahrens; Dallas Police Officer Michael Krol; Dallas Police Officer Patrick Zamarripa; and Dallas Area Rapid Transit Officer Brent Thompson.
