President Barack Obama said in an August 4th press conference that he is “proud to have reinvigorated the long-neglected power of clemency.” The only problem is that 26% of the commutations were for firearms related charges.
I thought the President wanted to reduce gun violence? Out of 214 commutations, 56 were for firearms offenses.
The President goes after law abiding gun owners, then lets these felons out of prison?
Is there a member of the media who will ask him about this? Anyone?
Below are all of the recent commutations.
