It took far less than one day for the vultures of the liberal left to callously exploit the victims of America’s worst mass shooting in history.
Late last night in Las Vegas, a crowd of country music fans were targeted by gambling aficionado Stephen Paddock from his 32nd floor hotel room at the world famous Mandalay Bay resort and casino. During a set by singer Jason Aldean, Paddock opened fire with what was originally believed to be an automatic weapon, although experts now believe that it is possible that he was using a device called a bump stock to simulate full-auto. Paddock’s assault has claimed the lives of at least 58 people as of this writing, and injured 500+ more.
Immediately, the liberal left took to their smartphones from the safety of their homes to decry the violent incident, and call for increasingly totalitarian gun control measures, nearly ignoring the victims of this tragedy in the process.
Of course, Hillary Clinton was one of the first in line to push the leftist gun control agenda.
“Hillary Clinton took heat Monday for issuing what critics called an ‘ignorant’ and ‘irrelevant’ statement going after the NRA and silencers in the hours after the Las Vegas mass shooting.
“’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,’ she tweeted, adding: ‘Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.'”
Furthermore, lawmakers from Connecticut chimed in.
“Connecticut’s senators, who have been especially outspoken on gun control ever since the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, were among the first to issue statements Monday.
“’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. 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.'”
Clinton’s tweet was particularly disturbing to those with gun safety knowledge and training, as it belied an incredibly warped view of what a silencer is even capable of.
Hillary has apparently watched one too many James Bond movies, and believes that silencers make firearms completely unnoticeable. In reality, these devices are only capable of adjusting the volume of a weapon by a few decibels, rendering the former First Lady’s comments completely ignorant.
As the day progresses, we should expect further nonsensical arguments from the radical left…a reality that will likely continue to insult the conservative demographic that was affected by Paddock’s actions.
