This was prescient. On June 2 at a town hall meeting in Elkhart, Ind., a man asked President Obama about gun control measures that restrict law-abiding gun owners. The president stressed that no one is coming for Americans’ guns and then talked about an eerily similar scenario as to what would play out in Orlando a little more than a week later.
“This is somebody who is a known ISIL sympathizer. And if he wants to walk into a gun store or a gun show right now and buy as much — as many weapons and ammo as he can, nothing’s prohibiting him from doing that, even though the FBI knows who that person is.”
