Democrats Demand Gun Control After Vegas Shooting
Kevin Felts 10.02.17
The blood is barely dry on the streets of Las Vegas, and the gun grabbers are already calling for more gun control. This time will be different; Republicans control both houses of government and President Trump is reputedly a friend of the NRA.
Often, mass murders of this type will cause gun owners, spurred by fear of more gun control, to go into panic-buying mode. For example, after Sandy Hook, stores were cleared out of everything. There was not a PMAG to be found for months.
Let’s look at the big picture:
50 people die in a mass shooting, gun grabbers demand new gun control.
In 2016, 765 people were murdered in Chicago, gun grabbers are silent. They are silent because they know guns are not the problem. But, that does not stop them from yelling into an echo chamber.
WASHINGTON — The worst mass shooting in modern American history was met with immediate calls for action on gun control Monday from some Democratic lawmakers. […]
“Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity,” Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said in a statement.
“This must stop,” Murphy continued. “It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren’t public policy responses to this epidemic. There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference. It’s time for Congress to get off its ass and do something.”
Even Hillary Clinton weighed in on the topic.
The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.
Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.

On a personal note, maybe Hillary should realize that her stance on gun control is one of the reasons why she lost the 2016 presidential election?
Gun-grabbing Democrats know there is no chance of any new gun control laws being passed while Trump is in office. But, they have to say something to keep their liberal followers happy.
