You’ve heard the news about the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Terrible. Our sincere condolences go out to the friends and families now grieving about the deceased and to those at the hospital, some in critical condition, we can only wish them a speedy recovery. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of them. What a horrible crime.
No one should ever be subjected to such a senseless, brutal act of violence by a twisted and evil individual. Please note, I have not said his name, nor will I. His name shall not be mentioned by me and I wish nobody would ever speak it again, he does not deserve to be remembered.
Now the political fallout from this horror begins. Of course I wish it hadn’t, but it has and for no good reason. So, now I am forced to respond because one of liberties is predictably being challenged.
Once again, a liberal politician has used a horrible gut wrenching tragedy to get before TV cameras for personal advantage. The first big liberal to enter the media spotlight is Hillary Clinton. This low person is blaming the NRA for the Las Vegas tragedy.
Last time I checked the NRA did not endorse the shooting of people. They sure didn’t support shooting anyone with a machine gun. Further, machine guns are not sold at Big 5 or Walmart. They are not sold at your every-day kind of gun shows. Machine guns are illegal and they have been since the 1930’s. The NRA has never even suggested that the public has a right to own a machine gun. But, that doesn’t matter Hillary.
Clinton tweets, “must put politics aside” and “stand up to the NRA,” specifically citing the organization’s stance on gun silencers. But, silencers have nothing to do with Las Vegas? (This was in reference to some proposed law to remove the $300 fee to legally own a gun-muffler)
Clinton said, “The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots, (no doubt trampling many of the non-gunshot injured) imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get. Our grief isn’t enough,” she continued. “We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.” Oh yeah and how likely is that to happen?
I’m pretty sure that Hillary Clinton never opened her big flap or railed on the NRA again the answer would be NEVER. In realistic terms, the odds of being machine gunned would be less than being struck by a meteorite. So, whats the deal Hillary, what are you really saying? Are you saying we should ban guns? That’s really it isn’t it? Sure. Hillary is now a gun-grabber because she thinks it will get her votes. Previously, she was not, she was a sportsperson, remember during the last election? Doing that time she had shown no moral compunction against gun ownership, but now its an opportunity to exploit. She’s disgusting and so is any politician, left or right, that would use this incident for personal gain.
