Boulder Shooting Used by Democrats to Push Gun Control Agenda

It wasn’t hard to foresee which hand the Democrats were going to play after a mass shooting occurred at a Boulder, Colorado grocery store on Monday afternoon.

The mass shooting at a Kings Sooper grocery store that left 10 people dead at the hands of a 21-year-old by the name of Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa follows fatal shootings that took place only six days earlier at three Atlanta-area spas. Of course, the shootings did not go without political condemnation from liberal lawmakers.

The left has been notorious for weaving tragic shootings into their political agenda without hesitation. This time it’s different because they control the White House, House of Representatives and Senate. What’s more, Democrats just recently passed two gun control bills on March 11 that sought to tighten their grip on who is able to obtain a firearm. It was only a matter of time until a shooting would occur that Democrats would gladly use to push for legislation to strip law-abiding citizens of their Constitutional rights.

Sadly, the “common-sense” laws that Democrats have been pushing for will be absolutely useless. Look at our neighbor Mexico, for example. They have some of the strictest gun laws and we can see how well those are working out.

Biden is no friend of gunowners and those who want to be able to defend themselves, their families and their neighbors in any way, shape or form. When Biden was serving in the Senate, he worked to pass the 10-year ban on so-called “assault weapons” in 1994. Recently, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that Biden was “considering a range of levers,” including executive action to address gun violence. What hasn’t Biden tried to mend with executive action since taking office.

The “assault-style” gun leftists are really looking to go after is the AR-15. The model of rifle is one of the most popular styles for hunting, target practice and home defense and is going to be targeted again because it’s “scary looking.” Yes, Democrats don’t know a damn thing about the rifle aside from how it looks. No matter how many times you prove them wrong with facts, leftists are going to continue calling it an “assault weapon,” even though assault weapons known as automatic weapons are illegal for civilian purchase and use and “AR” does not stand for “assault rifle.”

They don’t care. They simply want to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, plain and simple. Even though everything adds up to the fact that criminals will still find ways to get their hands on guns even if made illegal (after all, they are called criminals for a reason), Democratic lawmakers will ignore the facts and keep pushing for bans. Remember, the man at the helm of this administration is the same one that said 10 rounds is “still too much in my view” and that“There is no rationale for us to have these assault weapons. Who needs a clip that can hold 100 rounds?”

Yep, just more proof that they cannot backup their own ideas with knowledge they don’t have. I’d be surprised if Biden ever held a firearm in his life.

And remember what happens when a government bans your guns. Look at the regimes in communist countries, past and present, such as Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela, just to name a few.

Look at how America won its independence for crying out loud. Do you think they took up arms against the British with pitchforks?

Don’t tell me that this is not another step toward tyrannical rule – regulating our only true protective means. If progressives really cared about Americans being killed by gun violence, like they say they do, wouldn’t they focus their attention on tackling the source of the problem being those with mental health issues and serious instability? Not to mention those most recently affected by the left’s own archaic coronavirus lockdowns, which I’m sure has driven a fair share of people to the brink of disaster.

Wouldn’t they try to make firearms more accessible to those who need to protect themselves and their families in some of the poorest and most crime-stricken areas of the country? Is this not especially true in places where the police are defunded or backlogged with other calls?

Yeah, I would think so too, but unfortunately their push for gun control is not for the safety of fellow Americans, but a push to make us unstable enough as a country to enact their tyrannical, state-first policies. And while we mourn the unnecessary loss of life at the hands of crazed individuals, do not let the left blind you with the use tragedy for their own political gain.
