The widow of the most famous sniper in U.S. military history confirmed that President Barack Obama’s “Guns In America” CNN special featuring an invite-only crowd had those in attendance submit their questions in writing beforehand confirming for many the suspicion that the fake “townhall” was a carefully scripted media event.
Even so, Taya Kyle was one of several people who asked the President questions that he either dodged, filibustered, or flat-out lied about in response.
Appearing on Fox News yesterday, Kyle remained convinced that the President’s anti-gun stance was ignorant and self-defeating.
Taya Kyle, the widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, confronted President Obama over his gun control proposals at a televised town hall Thursday — and later told Fox News that the president is only offering “false hope” on the issue of gun violence.
At the CNN-hosted town hall on gun violence, Obama faced some of his toughest questions from Kyle. She criticized his newly announced executive actions expanding background checks and spoke about the importance of self-defense.
“I want the hope that I have the right to protect myself,” she said at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. “That I don’t end up to be one of these families, that I have the freedom to carry whatever weapon I feel I need.”
She added: “I know that background checks aren’t going to stop me from getting a gun.”
Kyle went on to say that there are thousands of gun laws on the books, and that the problem is a lack of enforcement, a point many others have made as federal gun crime prosecutions by the Department of Justice have plummeted.
She also blasted the use of executive orders by the President, and questioned their legality.
