ABC’s Jake Tapper Challenges Obama in Gun Control Presser: Where Have You Been the Past 4 Years?

In a press conference on Friday, President Obama’s last reporter question on the issue of gun violence came from ABC reporter Jake Tapper, who challenged the president on why this past Friday’s shooting is causing him to take action while other incidents throughout his four years did not warrant such action.

“It seems to a lot of observers that you made the political decision in 2008 […] to not talk about gun violence,” Tapper began. “You had your position on renewing the ban on semi-automatic rifles that then-Sen. Biden put in place, but you didn’t do much about it. This is not the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years […] where have you been?”
