Sometimes engaging in substantive debate with someone is a waste of time.  This is one of those cases.  His argument is fucking stupid, so much so that I won't even bother debating the point.  The end.  
 They come from being indoctrinated into radical Islam, in most cases.     Yes.  Yes they do.  Economic circumstances have little to nothing to do with terrorism.    You actually believe lack of opportunity is the root cause of terror. I have a passport.  State.  The U.S. State Department.  Surely, even a non-U.S. citizen understands this is a common way to refer to that department.  I wrote that because one of the idiot spokespersons--Marie Harf--actually parroted the...
In this case, that's what it is.  I won't even get into further.  It's so fucking stupid that I don't know where to begin.  
 Fucking.  Idiotic.  
 I didn't claim Congress was blameless.    You're betraying your bias in support of his proposals here. They were oh-so-reasonable and would be oh-so-effective.  Welcome to politics.  You have to work to build relationships and work to build support.  Obama refuses to engage with lawmakers. He simply beats them over the head when they don't do exactly what he wants.    Tell me, what is my position?  I said that our right to keep and bear arms has already been infringed....
You sound as delusional as the idiots working at State. Providing opportunity and a future. Jesus Christ.
I'll add my condemnation of this supposition to the pile. It's completely absurd on many levels. Even the comparison to Arab Bank is ridiculous. The government would have to show that Apple knew specific users were engaging in terrorism, and show negligence by looking the other way. There are some good examples here of how crazy this logic is if carried forward to other products. Under the standardfor criminal and civil liability the authors describe, any company...
 Did he really try to get a bill passed?  No.  He presented a laundry list of wishes, most of which would be completely ineffective in reducing gun crime anyway.  They pushed back, and he did his usual excuse-making routine.    The Constitution is often not specific.  In my opinion, government has already "infringed" on citizens' rights to keep and bear arms.  I highly doubt Congress would have come to an agreement, because the gun rights vs. gun control positions are too...
Bullshit.  He hasn't even sent a bill to Congress.  He just gets on TV and lectures them with phrases like "why wouldn't we do that?" and "Republicans in Congress [insert something about standing in the way]."  His views are wrongheaded and misguided, but the real issue (fortunately) is that he's a shitty leader.  He's terrible at building support and relationships needed to get legislation through.  He just says "**** it, I'll do it by fiat and make it look like I'm doing...
Well, another shooting in a theater, so I guess we can get ready for a new dose of our "soul-searching" President wagging his finger at all gun owners.
