Have you ever watched a flock of vultures circling an injured animal? They are waiting for the moment the animal is incapable of defending itself so they can swoop in for the kill and pick the carcass clean. That’s one of the best ways to describe many Democrats, especially those who have already set their sights on a 2020 run for the White House.
Within hours of the Las Vegas mass shooting, White House hopefuls like Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Kamala Harris, crawled out of the gutter to attack the Second Amendment when it seems it is most vulnerable. Warren and others are targeting guns with the intention of passing the strictest gun control laws ever seen in our nation, and they will continue to push until no one is allowed to own or possess a gun.
Not long ago, Democratic presidential hopefuls shied away from talking about gun control — or at least made sure to pepper their rhetoric with nods to the Second Amendment.
In the wake of Sunday night’s shooting massacre in Las Vegas, which left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 people injured, several of the leading potential Democratic 2020 presidential candidates were quick to blame mass killings on guns — even though it’s an issue that has burned their party politically in the recent past.
“We cannot simply throw up our hands or continue to justify the presence of weapons of war whose primary purpose is to kill the largest number of human beings in the shortest amount of time possible,” freshman Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said in a statement…
If one person out of 1 million does something wrong, does it make sense to punish all 1 million? If you compare the number of gun owners to the number of mass shootings, that’s pretty much what Democrats are doing. They are also ignoring recent studies that show that conservative gun owners are the most law-abiding members of society. It’s the liberal activists and gangs who commit most of the gun violence, but since when have Democrats paid any attention to facts.
