It's been a minute since Kellyanne Conway made headlines, and she's back at it in a big way. This morning in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, she decided to try and blame the Obama administration for the lax gun regulations that lead to the massacre in Las Vegas this week. People are as confused as they are, well, amazed.
Kellyanne Conway is knows how to make headlines.
Guys. I'm just seeing this. Flash cards? She used flash cards?! This is unreal. https://t.co/U9mN7mQnLC— Kyle Griffin (@Kyle Griffin)1499917134.0
But first some background.Above is an NRA ad meant to stoke fears among gun owners that Obama planned to take their guns away. It's from January 2016. And this isn't at all the first of its kind. Fears that Obama would take everyone's guns away spurred higher gun sales than this country had ever seen.
But since the massacre on Sunday, calls for gun control have started to seem more reasonable.
In 2012, Trump supported Obama's call for gun control after Sandy Hook. https://t.co/lp3lhy0q67— Kyle Griffin (@Kyle Griffin)1507220704.0
But that's never stopped Kellyanne from coming with a position to take.

People were, well, confused to say the least.
Kellyanne Conway is so combative that she has gotten off topic. What does Russia have anything to do with Gun Control.— Evelyn Holland (@Evelyn Holland)1507204723.0
Some pointed out this could be a good sign.
Kellyanne Conway is blaming Obama for bump stock availability. Should be easy to ban since Trump loves undoing Obama's legacy.— Garic Goblinhewer (@Garic Goblinhewer)1507208009.0
