President Obama has spent years denying accusations that he’s out to snatch people’s guns. Now, it seems he’s lost patience.

Watch the video above to see the president respond to a man who confronts him about wanting ”to control and restrict and limit… responsible use of guns and ammunition” rather than deal with actual criminals. As he explains, it’s the National Rifle Association that’s protecting criminals like known Islamic State sympathizers, and making it impossible for America to keep its citizens safe.
