"Vowing Gun Control"
Dumocrats, after hearing about the mass shooting in California, wasted no time in “vowing gun control, using their newfound majority in Congress.” Riiigghhtt! They’ll send out many fund-raising letters, demanding money to do what they know they cannot do, take guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. All their favorite laws are already in effect in California, the state in which this new atrocity occurred. So what do they want to do? Enact even more of their USELESS, unenforceable laws that do NOTHING toward “keeping guns out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them.” Their big problem is that none of their laws apply to those who shouldn’t have guns because they just IGNORE them and get them ILLEGALLY. Word is, the shooter in California got his gun legally, in spite of the fact that he had been subject to a mental health examination after a confrontation some time ago where he was wrecking his own house. They decided then that he was not a danger to himself, or others. Boy, did THEY screw up! So all their laws did NOTHING to keep him from getting the gun he used to kill 12 people, including one cop, who tried to stop him. There were reportedly SIX cops in that crowd, all UNARMED, so they could do nothing but cower, out of his sight, while he killed people, left and right. They give politicians a hard time for “doing nothing about gun control” when there’s actually nothing they CAN do, using the laws they have made so far—and nobody has come up with anything better.
