In typical knee-jerk fashion, the political Left went straight to gun grabbing mode in the wake of the El Paso and Dayton shootings over the weekend while continuing to ignore the ongoing mass killings in the gun control capital of Chicago. Forget mental health, forget violent video games. Vox reported that “more guns” are to blame:”But let’s be clear about precisely what kind of decision is letting events like this recur, most recently in Dayton and El Paso. Congress’s decision not to pass background checks is not what’s keeping the US from European gun violence levels.” Can you say “selective math”?

The brutal news about the mass shootings over the weekend has once again left social media and the blogosphere flooded with thousands of ignorant hot takes offering solutions that won’t solve anything.
Predictably, the Democrats running for president have been some of the worst offenders. As expected, they’re all full of cries for congressional action, however vague. The tragedies have highlighted just how little difference there is between them.
I try to avoid social media in times of tragedy but I allowed myself to be lured in today and made a couple of quick observations, this one coming after seeing three or four elected Democrats blame Mitch McConnel for America’s societal woes.
