Laughter yesterday shooting at the DC navy yard it took no time at all for Democrats and other gun control activists to politicize the tragedy.
California senator Dianne Feinstein put out a statement hours later calling on congress to quote.
Stop shirking its responsibility.
And resume -- thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country.
And the funds Henry Winkler of happy days fame sarcastically tweeted.
Another shooting in Washington DC please America do nothing to promote gun control because that's how we roll -- -- we all shot each other.
So Bob do you -- It was appropriate to do this.
I was the same day that third absolute blood in -- -- -- I do I do what I did and I don't continue to believe that produced.
Here's a guy with clearly mental illness he was it was documented the the navy knew about it.
And yet he was able to go and purchase -- -- now what does that tell you.
He listened to Joseph Biden's advice -- Well that got by shotgun Democrats have any idea that exist in this 'cause you can be fruitcake like getting robbed by gunmen who -- and -- -- thirteen people if he was able by the gun and -- -- Minnesota gave the -- I don't know I don't know that there is a messaging problem a little bit.
For Biden now on that go around by a shotgun.
Advice that he was giving during the gun control debate.
I don't I mean I don't remember much about it donors but you know I suppose you could say that -- amount -- and that's the point.
Slam is you still have to have a background check though brother and that -- -- they just had background check.
If you bought it legally he did yet just that there's there was nothing on these background check that city and imagine -- -- that well done chicken don't backlog projects background checks are good for finding criminals who felons that wanna buy a gun -- immediately stop that that's easy -- law enforcement shares information.
Problem is if someone.
It's checked into -- mental institution in New Jersey and goes and tries a -- in New York they don't share that information.
And no one knows so they can give him if he has never criminal background you can get a -- so.
What needs to happen -- you need to beef up that system if people if people have mental Willis if there's been a history of domestic violence those types of things.
They have to share they wouldn't -- -- don't law that was ready for the right isn't complaining about that the right isn't saying don't do that you have to understand something you guys on the left wanna point for -- -- the right.
The -- is OK with that that's fine but where where they've done their in the bids of discussion on the on the bill that was of the there was no wasn't for that the goals for national -- Charlotte registry that's what the bill Weis and they got a problem the registry and -- -- you know.
But he had not -- but -- alleged correlation.
But that wasn't going to change anything regarding mental health reporting and without and voluntary.
That the detention of these people at at mental hospital.
An advocate and out that's that if that's where America decides it wants to go.
Maybe that's appropriate but that wasn't what the discussion was on the -- you could you did go through a background check.
But the big board let's say for example the shooting that that he did do his ceiling to his neighbors -- it she says that she's thought that there was malice in it.
That the cops came they did an investigation ultimately that -- press charges against him so there's not a record up.
Well there clearly was a record -- found out about it during the investigated this -- Later -- Convicted of a felony or or a domestic violence just I don't like how about it and take it insurance coverage keeps the records -- everybody who uses insurance go to hospitals and mental hospital whatever.
Well that is why they're there that but there's that it.
Gotta be careful with that there was well because there's a lot of fear that insurance companies keeping the -- that mental health records now the government getting those records with Obama care.
If I'm sitting in eight.
Shrinks office Greg and I say something like.
I hate my job on the conservative my -- really angering me well let's write it down to meet you sure she doesn't have insurance companies -- and making sure that she can't get a gun so there is a little bit of clear by putting mental health legislation you're OK with the insurance companies have had -- -- like I get I like to get grating here Wednesday all right Greg.
Just this week remember the chick -- shooter in Washington area he's going to be -- it's interesting you do not here.
From the media or from the left and he cries about guns or gun control when you have a liberal activist.
With a backpack trying to gun down quote as many people as he could.
Yeah I mean -- it doesn't fit the story line it's not a story but here's the I think he did the point will we would dispute started this discussion was about politicizing an event quickly after it happens.
If you think that you have a practical solution.
That actually solves a problem you had every right to politicize it.
You should say I know how to fix this if there was a mass illness and you were a doctor you -- was caused that illness you have every right to say that the problem with gun control is at the sentiment is emotionally driven and not fact based.
If you ask a person that it believes in gun rights and owns -- gun your statistics.
You're cold hard unfriendly facts.
Actually are right but they aren't acceptable and act as an emotional response have you have to be emotional about this the fact most gun violence.
Has declined like you said earlier 559 victims over thirty years -- been 330000.
Victims from 2000 to 2010.
-- that's not why this could 61% are suicide this is not a big issue but that backs.
The facts are sober in real and nobody wants -- because it's not emotionally here.
This is a proposal you don't you'll probably if you're a bit -- -- mental institution and you go to try to buy guns -- is -- -- than they already share.
You know you cannot buy a gun if you bend -- put into the -- Did not well not voluntary button bright but -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 111000 guns last year cause murders 111000 people died in the hands and on that wasn't a suicide.
Cigarettes car accidents accounted for about 40000 alcohol 80000.
But they blame the person in every single example with the exception of guns and now they want to -- the.
And I I think the last and the Democrats would have more credibility if they spoke up about gun violence in liberal areas like Chicago and started to talk about that -- gun free zones for example.
Mean if you look at it.
-- less than 110 of 1% of the people that were murdered and mass murders over the last thirty years it's a small fraction.
But it's a huge deal and it's politicized look I'm guilty of it I called for no more gun free zones on military installments I guess I could be -- -- yesterday for doing the same thing.
Glad I spoke -- that's when I believe he's.
Think every should had a gun as they say it had against my own -- -- it'll take -- -- that so do -- yes.
There is very aggressive especially on military installments there there are statistics have a somewhere between 300000 and a million instances -- guns are used to protect themselves that's a fact.
If you use these hate facts -- ugly facts people think your report taste after tragedy however they can use emotionally driven arguments.
That have doubled his defective detectives -- did the gun.
Advocates say the two million people a year use guys who take themselves.
Now that's just unmitigated bulls played well you're gonna have to talk to President Obama commission that's -- -- -- and if somebody goes towards the Florida now -- there's a new one that -- President Obama commissioned after sandy -- that found.
Up to a couple of million perhaps between -- -- thousand about two million people use guns in self defensive purposes.
As final thoughts the mayor of Washington DC is blaming this on on the sequester.
I have aircraft is ridiculous restaurant straws and also that the media the mainstream media's not did not come out of it shining.
My costar at all -- -- that it but the fact that a lot of people went to bed last night thinking that the shooter had used -- AR fifteen when that wasn't there wasn't even.
And they are fifteen on the scene it's despicable list thanks Feinstein.
Who use the gun the project to -- years ago.
Was the first -- -- on forty -- Morgan who has actually no idea what he's talking about.
Perpetuated yet do you is what to say -- guns don't kill people people kill our people that's right and I say people -- guns kill people.
