Some things never change for the Left

Shades of Barack Obama. The gunshots were still echoing across a Virginia baseball field where a GOP congressman, an aide and two police officers were wounded by a Bernie Sanders supporter – they were barely at the hosptal – when Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe was in front of cameras calling for stricter gun control.

McAuliffe, like Obama, crassly refuses to let a crisis go to waste.

“There are too many guns on the streets,” McAuliffe, a Democrat, railed during a press conference shortly after the Wednesday’s shooting.

Neither McAuliff, nor Obama, nor any of the rabid Left will accept reality and it was standard fare for Obama to emotionally call for more gun control after each and every shooting. It had little effect because most Americans know what we know, guns are not the problem.

Give or take 20 million or 30 million, there are something like 300 million guns in America. Only two of them were at that baseball diamond where Republicans were practicing for a charity event. Only two. Hundreds of millions of guns were not involved a crime today – and will not be tomorrow.

The real problem is people, people who would kill, people who would find a way to kill, even if every single gun in the country were melted down. Congress is unwilling or unable to find a way to deal with them and the Obamas and McAuliffes among us turn to further control law-abiding citizens – making them vulnerable – because they are easy targets.

A cynic might believe the only reason McAuliffe stepped up today was because of remorseless self-interest. Why else would he beat the dead horse of gun control? Because he is being touted by some as a presidential contender in 2020 and he was looking for headlines.

With his ties to the Clintons and Obamas of this world, with his spotty record as Virginia governor, the nation could do worse, we suspect. We just do not know how.

    Where was the McAuliffe over the knife attacks in London. It was a “nothing burger” for him and the rest of the left. They know they can’t possibly control all the butcher knives. “Knife violence” is on the rise and they ignor it. People should write this east coast leftist clown and tell him how insensitive it is to be posturing on gun control while Congressman Scalise lies fighting for his life.

    Millions of guns?

    What about the Zillions of drugs on American streets?

    All brought to you by those loveable, laughable, bogus “for the people” liberal Marxist and their 50 years of “drug culture”.

    Drug overdose is now the major cause of death in the U.S.

    Why do Republicans always use the wrong headed ineffective counter-arguments?
