Hillary Uses S.C. Shootings As Excuse To Push Her Political Agenda
One can always count on Hillary to bring her own selective brand of outrage to what best can be described as a ‘universal and national tragedy”. And of course it didn’t take long for “Madam Hillary” to take a page from the Obama progressive handbook and immediately turn a national tragedy into political “talking points.”
"We have to face hard truths about race, violence, guns and division," Clinton said at the beginning of scheduled remarks at the annual National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference in Las Vegas.
"How many innocent people in our country from little children, church members to movie theater attendees, how many people do we need to see cut down before we act?" Clinton asked.
Of course what Clinton was referencing was the senseless murders in Charleston that left 9-people dead, and of course there was no mention of the deranged shooter, that part of her selective outrage was conveniently left out, so as not to distract from her progressive narrative.
"So as we mourn and as our hearts break a little more, we will not forsake those who have been victimized by gun violence, this time we have to find answers together,"
And there it is “GUN VIOLENCE”, as if this deranged kid who pulled the trigger perhaps a dozen times didn’t exist.
Obviously this deranged and hateful bigot should never have had a weapon to begin with, and perhaps the laws should be changed when purchasing a weapon from a gun dealer, doing a more detailed background check and also seeing if someone is mentally competent to own a weapon.
Moreover a recent study published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy concluded that there is a negative correlation between gun ownership and violent crime in countries internationally (more guns = less crime).Nations with control laws have substantially higher murder rates than those who do not in general.
In fact, the 9 European nations with the lowest gun ownership rate have a combined murder rate 3x that of the 9 European nations with the highest gun ownership rate.
