'A Cynical Distraction': Krauthammer Rips Obama for Bringing Up Guns Again
Charles Krauthammer tore into President Obama for once again bringing up gun control in his response to the San Bernardino terror attack.
In his primetime Sunday address, Obama reiterated his call for tightening U.S. gun laws, saying no matter how effective law enforcement and intelligence are, they can't identify every would-be shooter. He said Congress must close a loophole that would allow someone on the no-fly list to obtain a firearm legally.
"This distraction into gun control is really very cynical. The idea that the no-fly [list] is an important issue," said Krauthammer, joking about how colleague Steve Hayes once ended up on the no-fly list.
He pointed out that California - where the two terrorists were able to legally obtain the firearms used in the attack - already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation.
"These two assailants were not on any list ... They were entirely undetected. This was a way to change the subject," said Krauthammer,
Krauthammer said beyond that, Obama offered nothing new on how to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
"There was nothing to encourage any sense that we're going to do any better," he said.
