(Liberty Bell) – Democrats have no shame. They’ve become experts in exploiting tragedy to further their political agenda. Their motto seems to be “never let a crisis go to waste.” Indeed, for years they have been taking that sentiment to the extreme.
The elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, is no exception.
Leftists wasted no time at all pushing their radical gun control agenda in the wake of this tragic and heartbreaking event. The worst part about it is they don’t even operate in facts or reality.
Last week, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shamelessly put the left’s gun control agenda on full display.
During a Thursday news briefing Jean-Pierre made several questionable assertions regarding the recent mass shooting and guns in general.
“America has more guns than people in this country,” Jean-Pierre said. “If more guns were indeed the solution, we would be the safest country in the world. But we are not.”

This is an absurd mischaracterization of the Republican position on guns as no sane person would argue that the mere number of guns could somehow make America a safe place. It’s a ridiculous argument.
Not to mention, by her logic, if the mere existence of guns was actually indicative of the problem then the fact that there are so many guns in the US would actually be proof of the opposite. It would affirm that the existence of guns is not the problem at all.
The argument against tyrannical gun control, aside from the fact that the Second Amendment protects our right to bear arms, has always been that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens would actually help deter criminals.
It isn’t the actual gun that pulls its own trigger. It’s absurd that we even have to say it.
Jean-Pierre also suggested that the correct response to the mass shooting is to exploit it for gun control.
“The president has been very clear he wants action,” Jean-Pierre said. “He wants Congress to take action. He wants to turn this pain into action.”
The direct aftermath of a tragedy like this is not the time to discuss gun control at all but Democrats need Americans and fellow members of Congress to be emotional so they push the discussion endlessly.
It’s exactly what they mean when they say “never let a crisis go to waste.”
The biggest issue is that the left’s focus is completely wrong. They want to ban guns which would essentially punish law-abiding citizens when the real issues of mass shootings like the ones in Uvalde and Buffalo have nothing at all to do with guns themselves.
No one wants to talk about mental health or creating a better system to recognize seriously concerning red flags in the behavior of troubled individuals. It doesn’t appear to be a surprise in either case that these two 18-year-olds ended up carrying out mass shootings killing numerous innocent people.
There are always signs but those signs were and are being ignored.
Anyone saying “now isn’t the time to talk about gun control” doesn’t care that kids got fucking murdered today.

Now Democrats want to ban guns and make law-abiding citizens even more susceptible to gun violence carried out by unstable, mentally-ill individuals.
Does this really make any sense?
Of course not and it’s not supposed to because at the end of the day leftists don’t actually care about safety at all. It’s not about stopping mass shootings. The only thing they actually care about is disarming the American people. That’s it.
