To be fair, though, that chart looks like legal requirements. I think Obama had in mind the ability for teenagers in bad neighborhoods to get their hands on illegal guns easily.

But if he meant the phrase to be exaggeration for effect, it was way too much - it comes across as absurd and ridiculous.

Crazy, right?

Wow, glad I don't live in California. Here in Texas, you just show an ID and you get a gun. Although, that's if you buy a gun at a gun show.

I just bought my first gun (not California) and submitted for a background check. Approved in about 10 minutes. CCW requires a test. I know it's not that way in all states.

At first I thought the title was your opinion, then realised it was a quote from Obama. I was about to say....

It's from his Dallas memorial speech. A couple of other people have made memes about it too.

At first I was thinking maybe the people making fun of him were being too hard on him. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, and think he was just using the phrase as a figure of speech, for effect.

But the more I thought about it, and the context, the more it bothered me. So I decided to make a meme with my thoughts on it.

I was going to put a longer quote for more context, but it didn't fit in the title field.

Yeah I noticed something fishy too. Your comment here has 5 upvotes, but it's lower on the thread than one above it with 2 upvotes.

Has the same thing been happening other places?

Yeah, it's happened a couple times the last week or so. Here's the first time I noticed it, looks like they hit a couple other people too. Probably just one troll with alt accounts.

Hmmm. All of the students in my school district will get Chromebooks for this upcoming school year. And I know that my district is well behind many other school districts in providing pcs for students. And last I checked, my town still has a public library. Thanks to our tax dollars.
