Obama Points to Australia As Example Of Country Where Gunlaws Aren’t Completely Insane

The US President has been lambasted by segments of the media this week, following an online Q&A session in which he pointed to Australia as an example of a country where the gunlaws aren’t completely batshit insane.

The claim came in response to a question directed at Mr Obama over his stance on gunlaws, following what is now the 104th school shooting to occur since Mr Obama’s rise to power in late 2008. The President then pointed out Australia as an example of a country which he would like to emulate, due to its response to a mass shooting that didn’t involve the suggestion of arming teachers at all times.

The public backlash was instant, with concerned citizen and father of 0 Wayne LaPierre expressing his deepest concern over the 13 American students who have been murdered in schools with guns since the start of 2014. “It’s troubling, you know.” said a teary LaPierre on TV early this morning, “These kids getting killed everyday, it’s the kind of thing that keeps you up at night, wondering if the government might use these unavoidable deaths as an excuse to take my precious guns.”

Sections of the press were just as concerned, with harsh criticism directed at Obama’s suggestion that maybe America should do something about regular school shootings. “We don’t take our lead from Australia, we’re an independent country with our own thoughts and ideas.” said one irate commentator on Australian Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News.

Mr Obama went on to suggest that the main reason no progress had been made on gun legislation was down to the powerful lobbying power the National Rifle Association. However a sweaty and panicked looking Mr Obama retracted the statement in a press conference latter in the day, while subtly gesturing to the curtains behind him, and mouthing the word “help”.
