Former President Barack Obama called for an Australia-style gun confiscation initiative on Tuesday, earning the praise of CBS talking heads.
“In a conversation you’ll see only on CBS Mornings Obama said public attitudes around gun rights have to be reshaped,” said Nate Burleson preceding his interview with Obama.
Obama said gun owners and gun control activists need to come together to “do something about gun violence,” while assuring gun ownership remains “an important tradition.”
“Now part of that work has to be done not just in those communities that already want to do something about gun violence, we have to also actively reach out to communities where gun ownership is an important tradition.”
Burleson then asked Obama, “What is the radical solution and do you believe there’s a larger issue at hand that causes fractures among us in this country?”
Revealing that his earlier assurances to gun owners were disingenuous, Obama suggested imposing an unconstitutional Australia-style gun confiscation effort by the federal government.
“In Australia, you had one mass shooting 50 years ago and they said, we’re not doing that anymore. That is normally how you would expect a society to respond when your children are at risk,” he said.
As if oblivious to the existence of the Second Amendment, Burleson asked, “Why is it so hard for us to do that?”
Obama replied that the Second Amendment has become an “ideological issue” and that’s why Democrats can’t impose unconstitutional gun restrictions.
“Gun ownership in this country became an ideological issue and a partisan issue in ways that it shouldn’t be. It has become sort of a proxy for arguments about our culture wars,” he said.
Elsewhere in the interview, Burleson also asked Obama, “Post-presidency, what about this country keeps you up at night?”, to which Obama responded, “the degree to which we now have a divided conversation in part because we have a divided media.”
“When I was coming up, you had three TV stations. and people were getting a similar sense of what is true and what isn’t, what was real and what was not. Today what I’m most concerned about is the fact that because of the splintering of the media, we almost occupy different realities,” he said.
CBS Mornings host Gayle King of course heaped effusive praise on Obama after the interview.
“I’ve heard people say when it comes to Barack Obama, you may never question his character, his integrity, and his intelligence, and I think that was just another example there. I thought that was a great conversation on many different topics,” she gushed.
Obama’s former VP Joe Biden, who now occupies the White House, recently called on Congress to ban all “assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines” following a recent mass shooting in Allen, Texas by a gunman allegedly linked to Mexican drug cartels.
