Get Ready for Biggest Gun Control Campaign since Sandy Hook

Written by Joe Scudder

The Democrats aren’t hiding that they see this as an opportunity for another hard gun control campaign.

Instead of investigating the second shooter, the media is devoting time and energy to a Democrat gun control campaign. This will be the largest push since or larger than when Adam Lanza was accused of killing young children in Newtown, Connecticut. Like Lanza, Stephen Paddock seems ideal for being used to promote gun prohibition precisely because his motives are so mysterious. Lacking anything to say about why he killed, it is easier to focus attention on the guns.

Before the final death toll had even been announced, the blame game began — with members of the media and elected Democratic officials accusing conservatives’ support for the Second Amendment for leading to Sunday night’s tragic massacre in Las Vegas.

Little is known about the motivation behind the attack that, at last count, left 59 dead and more than 500 injured, but that hasn’t stopped pundits from assigning blame.

After President Trump addressed the country and called for national unity in the wake of the attack, NBC’s Brian Williams invited Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) onto MSNBC, rhetorically asking him why the White House is avoiding discussing gun control.

“We saw this evil in Newtown just a few years ago,” Blumenthal replied.” “Nothing has changed since Newtown. Congress has been complicit.”

Williams then encouraged Blumenthal to continue his broadside on conservatives.

“Why don’t we act? What is the problem? What was it about first graders losing their lives that wasn’t sad enough to result in changes?” Williams asked sarcastically. “When do you believe the American people will have had enough; enough to push back against the edges of the Second Amendment argument enough to say we can live under the Second Amendment but there should be limits?”

On the late night comedy shows, attacks on Republicans came fast and furious.
