Ben Carson: Obama townhall tonight is political theater at its worst

From faceBook:

President Obama plans to discuss his latest executive actions on gun control at a town hall tonight. The American people are sick and tired of his grandiose actions that abuse presidential authority, do nothing to solve the actual problems facing our nation, and only hurt law-abiding citizens. We have a Constitutional right in this country to keep and bear arms. Yet President Obama and his Democrat allies like Hillary Clinton continue to propose regulations and restrictions that will only keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.

This is political theater at its worst.

Americans are rightly concerned when the same man who promised that you could keep your health care now promises that you can keep your guns. We should have a lively debate in this country about how Congress can keep guns away from criminals and the mentally ill. But the President’s pandering assertions of power are counterproductive. We need a President who will stop threatening legal gun owners, and start tackling the root causes of violent crime and terrorism in this county. As President I will stand firm in protecting the Second Amendment while working with Congress to better protect the American people from any enemy, foreign or domestic.
