The quote of the day is presented by Guns.com.
Same feces, different day. After the school shooting in Santa Clarita, all the same eminences of the civilian disarmament industry spouted all of the same outrage at the lack of common sense “gun safety” measures.
All of the same voices were raised touting all of the same actions that simply must be taken as a moral imperative to DO SOMETHING.
Never mind that not a single one of the gun prohibitionists’ prescriptions would have done a single thing to stop the Saugus High School shooter or to prevent virtually any other mass shooting that’s taken place.
But in a time of historically low “gun violence” in this country — there really isn’t an epidemic as the Democrats and the media would have you believe — portraying the problem as more dire than it is is really their only option.
It’s illegal for a teen to walk around with a handgun anywhere in the United States. It’s illegal for a California teen to go to Alabama or Arizona or Virginia to buy a gun. It’s illegal for any teen to purchase a gun through the mail or at a gun show or be gifted one from his dear uncle. It is illegal for parents to allow their kids to procure their firearms. No state or federal regulation now being championed by Senate Democrats would have stopped this teen, which is the case for the vast majority of mass shootings.
Murphy knows this. Kamala Harris and all the others leading Democrats who try to emotionally manipulate Americans to support their restrictions know this. All those who smear the NRA as a terrorist organization know this. All those who claim that Mitch McConnell has blood on his hands for failing to convene the Senate [to] pass a Democratic bill that has absolutely nothing remotely to do with the Santa Clarita shooting know this.
