“Politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism.”
After the shooting in Oregon this weekend, an angry Obama took to the airwaves and insisted that he would openly politicize gun control. The president cited Australia, a country with extremely strict gun control as a model.
Would you believe bad guys can get guns even there?
FOX News reports:
At least 2 dead in shooting outside police building in Australia, reports say
At least two people are dead after a shooting outside a police headquarters in Australia on Friday, according to published reports.
The Daily Telegraph Australia reports a lone gunman shot and killed a police IT expert outside New South Wales state Police headquarters in the Parramatta section of western Sydney The gunman was subsequently shot and killed by police, according to the newspaper.
Police confirmed that a major operation was taking place between Hassall Street and Charles Street near the police headquarters. They advised the public to avoid the area. Sky News Australia helicopter footage spotted bodies covered in sheets near the police building.
Real estate agent Edwin Almeida reportedly told the Australia Associated Press that he saw a man with a gun screaming and pacing up and down the side of the building, before seeing a body next to him. Sky News Australia reported that the gunman was wearing a black gown.
You might be surprised to learn that it was extremely difficult to find a decent video report on this story from American media outlets. At the time of this writing, none of the major news outlets have posted anything about this on their official YouTube channels.
Luckily, we found one decent video:
Complicating matters for Obama and his politically correct fans even further is the fact that the shooter was a Muslim who visited a mosque on his way to commit the crime.
The Telegraph reported:
The gunman who shot dead a police staffer was a 15-year-old who had visited Parramatta Mosque on his way to commit murder.
The teenager, a naturalised Australian of Iraqi-Kurdish background who arrived with his family from Iran, had walked to the police headquarters in Charles Street from his home in north Parramatta before opening fire on a civilian police employee.
The victim was identified as Curtis Cheng, a 17-year veteran of the police finance department, Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said today.
Mr Cheng — a father-of-two, of a son and a daughter — was shot in point blank range by the teen as he left work yesterday just after 4.30pm.
Speaking at a press conference today, Mr Scipione said the attack was “politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism”.
