Liberals Scream for “Sensible” Gun Control – But Guess What They’ll NEVER Admit in Public
It seems as if nothing brings out the liberals more than a mass shooting.
As horrific as these events are, liberals can’t help themselves.
Rather than wait for all the facts to come in, and allow the victims and families to grieve, they jump on the gun control soap box.
Obama, Bernie, and Hillary all called for “sensible” gun control almost immediately after the Oregon shooting.
But what do they really mean when they say “sensible”?
Let’s hope the moderator at the first Democratic presidential debate, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, takes a page from Charlie Cooke and asks Clinton, O’Malley and Sanders to explain what they see as “sensible gun control measures” or what “real gun reforms” are. In all likelihood, they’ll mention re-instituting the “assault weapons ban,” even thought the guns used in yesterday’s shooting weren’t banned under the ban, or the “gun show loophole,” even though mass shooters almost never purchase their guns at gun shows.
What we will probably get is a lot of “we have to do something!” and “we can’t just sit back and wait for the next shooting” lectern-pounding.
Make no mistake.
Obama revealed the real aim of “sensible gun control”.
“We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.”
Liberals want nothing less than a gun ban.
But they won’t come out and admit it.
And it’s unlikely Anderson Cooper will challenge the Democratic candidates.
