President Barack Obama, who claims to be pro-gun with a highly-suspicious staged skeet shooting photo, is taking his anti-gun campaign on the road, pushing his new gun-control agenda with stops in Minnesota.
On Monday, we will visit the Minneapolis Police Department‘s Special Operations Center, the first time he has pushed his anti-gun agenda outside of Washington.
His extreme package of anti-gun proposals were unveiled in Washington last month after the mass killing of elementary school children and teachers in Newtown, Conn., promising to use “the full weight” of the Presidency to crack down on gun violence.
Ironically, Obama is not taking his anti-gun campaign to his hometown of Chicago, where the murder rate from gun violence has skyrocketed in recent months.
Instead, the President picked Minneapolis, a city that has taken steps to curb gun violence and one that is pushing increased background checks.
Ahead of his trip, the White House released a photo purporting to show Obama shooting skeet at Camp David last year. The highly-suspicious photo shows the President mishandling a gun in an obviously-staged situation and has brought ridicule from both sides of the gun control argument.
