In the wake of the latest tragic mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, Democrats have taken all of two seconds of silence before immediately transforming a national tragedy into a massive partisan issue. Over … you guessed it … gun control.
Biden, who has apparently forgotten the art of checks and balances, has called for the Senate to initiate gun control measures “immediately” in the wake of the shooting. Needless to say, his desire to bypass the House and go straight to the Senate underscores the type of tyrannical administration that the fake news media continuously accused Trump of having.
Then again, American Patriots should have expected Biden to come out booming with announcements sooner rather than later, based upon Psaki’s typically bland, opaque press conferences.

Well, Ms. Psaki, apparently the discussion has escalated rapidly, judging from comments made by Biden himself. Including surprisingly self-aggrandizing comments.
More specifically, Biden claims that he previously led efforts to ban assault rifles, and he also insisted that he could get it done again as president.
“I got that done as a senator. It brought down mass shootings, we can do it again … We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again.” [Source: Fox News]
Really, Biden? So, your individual efforts “brought down mass shootings?” That’s quite the claim. Care to cite any facts or statistics to back that up? Needless to say, Biden declined to provide specifics.
In addition, Biden also claims that the movement to ban assault rifles should not be a partisan issue at all, despite taking the most partisan route possible to attempt to ban these rifles.
“These are bills that received votes with both Republicans and Democrats in the House. This is not and should not be a partisan issue. This is an American issue that will save lives, American lives. And we have to act. We should also ban assault weapons in the process.” [Source: Fox News]
“This is not and should not be a partisan issue.” Well, that’s nice. Didn’t it occur to Biden that freedom of speech and freedom of thought are apparently incredibly offensive to Democrats now, which means that nothing is “partisan” for Democrats.
It’s either their way, or the “deplorable” way. Which means that absolutely everything should be run by the Democrats, with Republicans serving as mere placeholders to provide an illusion of bipartisanship.
Plus, Biden has far more than banning assault rifles in mind, just as the Democrats had far more than COVID relief in mind when passing a $1.9T COVID relief package. That makes the issue even more “partisan” whether Biden likes it or not.
Aside from the ban on assault rifles, Biden and his lemmings are also contemplating “expanded background checks,” which could entail just about anything in leftist land. And, unsurprisingly, some of the most fervent supporters of “expanded” background checks include the likes of Chuck Schumer, who recently inspired with his impressive blend of melodrama and partisanship.
“We cannot seem to finish grieving one tragedy before another takes place … It is a reminder that we must confront a devastating truth in the United States: an unrelenting epidemic of gun violence steals innocent lives with alarming regularity.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, Schumer, as impressive as your sensitive vocabulary may come across, the “devastating truth” is that Democrats have long taken advantage of national tragedies to push even greater control. From nonsensical lockdowns during COVID to demanding immediate gun reform, it is “devastating” that the leftists exploit various tragedies in order to assume (or attempt to assume) greater authoritarian control.
Quick question for Schumer: Who is going to be checked more thoroughly in Democrats’ dreamland? Illegal immigrants storming into the nation, or law-abiding Americans who are purchasing guns in the first place to protect themselves from said illegals and other unhinged criminals (cough, Antifa, cough)?
From all appearances, it appears that Americans will be checked far more thoroughly than illegal immigrants, many of whom are apparently able to enter the United States despite being COVID positive.
