Former President Barack Obama refuses to miss an opportunity to push his gun-grabbing agenda.
Obama was honored on Wednesday night as a Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope laureate, and he spent most of his speech repeating himself, taking obvious jabs at President Donald Trump, and pushing for gun control.
During his remarks, Obama said his failure to enact tougher gun control policies was his greatest failure while in office.
He then blamed the lack of such laws for the deaths of former President John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Trayvon Martin.
