On the heels of the deadliest church shooting in American history, where at least 26 people were killed and nearly two dozen more were injured, the Democrats unsurprisingly wasted no time politicizing the tragedy, and began using it as yet another platform to bellow for more gun control.
But, you see, therein lies the problem. Fortunately, those of us who are wise to their ways understand that “confiscating” firearms won’t actually prevent these kinds of horrifying events from occurring.
For instance, let’s take a brief walk down memory lane and examine the Kunming Railway Station Massacre of 2014, also known as one of the worst knife massacres in history, when a group of four knife-men stormed the station and began attacking hundreds of innocent Chinese, leaving 29 dead and injuring 130 more.
And in reality, just like Sunday in Sutherland Springs, had it not been for armed Chinese authorities who rose to the occasion and put down the attackers, the tragedy at Kunming could have been much worse.
What’s more is that these kinds of tragedies don’t stop at guns or knives, either. For example, what about automobiles? Or this list of weird murder weapons, including 5.5 in. stiletto heels, a guitar, a spatula, and a jar of pickles.
Needless to say, the point here is that the issue isn’t guns. It’s people. Flawed people with flawed hearts, who will use just about anything at their disposal to carry out a tragedy.
The Democrats should know this by now. Therefore, it’s time to end the charade, identify evil for what it really is…and leave gun control out of it once and for all.
It’s also worth pointing out….
