(Liberty Bell) – While the country is still in shock over the senseless massacre that occurred at an Uvalde, Texas, elementary school, the left is shamelessly pushing gun control that will stop exactly zero crime.
Even though we don’t even know the full story of exactly what happened and who exactly the teen is that opened fire on defenseless children is (aside from the fact that he was mentally ill), Democrats are wasting no time turning this tragedy into a political tool.
They know time is ticking on their opportunity to kill the Second Amendment and go after Americans’ guns and they aren’t about to waste a second.
Part of their strategy, of course, involves going after Republicans who support the Second Amendment and Americans’ right to bear arms as if Republicans have caused this tragedy and others like it.
One of the left’s favorite targets is the National Rifle Association, which just so happens to have its annual convention scheduled for this weekend in Houston. Speakers Friday night include a range of high-profile conservatives such as President Trump, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw.
Liberals’ heads are literally exploding over the event:
If you've ever wondered what kind of tight grip the NRA has over politicians, it's this: Having them speak at an event days after another preventable mass shooting. https://t.co/pLAg9RIjv1

This weekend in Houston Texas the NRA holds its Annual Convention. Expected are Gov Abbott, Sen Cruz and Former President Trump. Each of those distinguished attendees should answer why 18, 19 & 20 year olds can buy assault weapons legally, though they cannot legally buy a beer.

On Friday as parents in Uvalde, Texas bury their children, Donald Trump and GOP leaders will celebrate at the NRA convention in Texas. Beyond despicable.

Trump, however, was undeterred by the unhinged whining of the left. On his Truth Social account, Trump asserted that Americans need to talk about guns and that’s why his planned appearance at the NRA event is all the more important.
He announced he planned to keep his commitment to attend the event and said, “America needs real solutions and real leadership in this moment, not politicians and partisanship,” Trump wrote. “That’s why I will keep my longtime commitment to speak in Texas at the NRA Convention and deliver an important address to America. In the meantime, we all continue to pray for the victims, their families, and for our entire nation—we are all in this together!”
It doesn’t make any sense for Trump to cancel his appearance at the NRA event as if the NRA is somehow responsible for this latest devastating mass shooting.
President Trump recognizes the need to be reasonable and the need for civil discourse on the matter. Joe Biden, on the other hand, is dead-set on taking guns from Americans, period.
In an address Tuesday, Biden went the route of righteous indignation to push the radical left’s anti-gun agenda.
Just a reminder, the left does not care at all about “safety,” just like they don’t actually care about “equality.” The only thing the left cares about is disarming the American people under the guise of safety so that they can accomplish their deranged, evil agenda without the threat of patriotic uprising.
Americans will be sitting ducks if the left successfully disarms us and it’s important not to lose sight of that fact.
While Biden attempted to stress the importance of gun control, he botched the delivery, as per usual, and ended up receiving a lot more criticism than praise.
Biden tried to imply that Americans are only armed because of the efforts of the gun lobby rather than it being a God-given right as supported by the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson summed up Biden’s speech saying, “Far from advancing the gun control cause, Biden diminished himself again,” and added that he showed he was “unfit for leadership of the country.”
Biden isn’t alone in his calls for gun control. Rabid anti-gun zealot Beto O’Rourke attempted to hijack a news conference being held by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott but was shut down. In the end, he too only proved he is unfit for leadership.
Meanwhile, Trump’s announcement has been the most reasonable and sensible statement made on the matter. America needs “real leadership” and less “politicians and partisanship.” Too bad the Democrats are incapable of either.
