Obama is misinformed on the ease with which a teenager can get a book
His statement about it being easier for a teen to get a Glock than a book is just not even close to being true. Has he ever heard of libraries? Dr. Ben Carson talks about how reading books from the library changed his life. Most of these youngsters have smartphones and they could easily download books from Amazon for less than the cost of bullets. The problem is not the availability of books, it is the priorities of the teens in these neighborhoods.
Obama is also wrong about school funding. The US spends more than most countries on education and gets some of the poorest results because of the failures of liberals running the schools.
