Fischer: Obama’s Gun Control Efforts Aimed At Preventing Climate Change Deniers From Owning Guns
Yesterday, Glenn Beck absurdly warned that President Obama’s executive action on background checks for gun buyers would prohibit anyone who seeks mental health treatment from owning a gun. Today, American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer took this nonsense a step further on his radio program when he declared that Obama’s action will prohibit anyone who doesn’t believe in climate change from owning a gun.
As Fischer explained it, those who represent a danger to themselves or others due to mental illness are not allowed to possess a gun and since Obama thinks that climate change poses a serious threat, it only stands to reason that Obama believes that anyone who doesn’t share his view about climate change is mentally ill and represents a threat to everyone else and therefore cannot be allowed to own a gun.
“If you are a danger to yourself or to others because of a mental health issue, then you can be denied the right to own a gun,” Fischer said. “If you and I deny that man-caused global warming is anything to worry about, then that’s going to make us a danger to others and unfit to own a gun.”
