It is easier for a lot of young people in this city and in some of your communities to buy a gun than buy a book. It is easier in some communities to find a gun than it is to find some fresh vegetables at a supermarket. (Applause.) That's just a fact. And that’s why the IACP and the overwhelming majority of the American people -- Democrat and Republican -- believe we should require national criminal background checks for anybody who wants to purchase a gun. (Applause.) That’s why the IACP believes we shouldn’t sell military-style assault weapons to civilians. They don't need them. (Applause.) They don't need them to hunt a deer. It's just a simple proposition -- cops should not be out-armed by the criminals that they’re pursuing. (Applause.)

And, funniest of all, the world's greatest armaments salesman bemoans The Law of Unintended Consequences:

Every time a mass shooting happens, one of the saddest ironies is that suddenly the purchase of firearms and ammunition jumps up because folks are scared into thinking that Obama is going to use this as an excuse to take away our Second Amendment rights.
