Everyone’s favorite ‘Dick’, that would be Senator ‘Little Dick’ Durbin, one of two U.S. senators who currently represent the crime infested bastion of leftwing lunacy known as the state of Illinois, wasted precious little time in giving his best effort to exploit the recent shootings that took place in Jacksonville, Florida. ‘Little Dick’ apparently saw no reason to wait for any of the actual facts regarding the shooting which took place on Sunday, all he needed to know was that another opportunity had suddenly presented itself to him and his party that would again allow them to first politicize a tragedy and to then use it to attack the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Three people including the shooter died in Sunday’s mass shooting in Jacksonville, which took place at a qualifying event for the Madden 19 video game tournament — another gun-free zone. Before it was known how the shooter acquired his gun and what — if any — legislative changes would have prevented him from acquiring it, ‘Little Dick’ pointed a boney finger at the NRA. ‘Little Dick’ wrote on Twitter, “I’m heartbroken for Jacksonville. No community should have to suffer from such senseless gun violence.” He added, “When will Congress have the courage to stand up to the NRA and pass meaningful reforms to help prevent these shootings in America?”
And it was one of ‘Little Dick’s’ fellow Illinois Democrats , Rep. Robin Kelly, who also chose to use Sunday’s shooting as an opportunity to attack both the Republicans and the NRA. And it was Kelly who, in her own rather imbecilic way, also went after the NRA on Twitter, saying, “This must not become routine. @SpeakerRyan and @HouseGOP take action now.” And she went on yo say, “Reject @NRA money. Take action on gun reform legislation. Now. #NeverAgain Not. One More.” And as many of you may recall, it was the Democratic National Committee that repeatedly fundraised off of the Parkland school shooting in February that left 17 people dead.
Meanwhile, it was also one of ‘Little Dick’s’ Democrat colleagues there in the Senate, Chris Murphy, who seized the opportunity to exploit this tragedy. His method was by retweeting what have long been recognized as skewed numbers and to claim that the Jacksonville shooting was the 234th mass shooting thus far in 2018. Now keep in mind here that the FBI defines a mass shooting as four or more killed in one incident, not counting the attacker. ‘Gun Violence Archive’, the leftwing organization whose numbers Murphy quoted, augmented the FBI’s definition to include “FOUR or more shot and/or killed in a single event [incident],” not counting the attacker.
So of course when a mass shooting can be four injured instead of four killed, the number of mass shootings naturally increases by including such things as drive-by shootings, gang violence, and other crimes heretofore omitted from tallies and included with actual, planned mass shootings in which four or more individuals are killed. You see, telling the truth has never been a trait valued by those on the left. So it’s a very rare occurrence that you will actually hear any Democrat telling the truth about any cause that is especially important to them, such as gun control. They will say whatever they feel they need to in order to accomplish their goal.
And can we agree that had Mollie Tibbets, aka “that young woman in Iowa” as she has been referred to many on the left, been killed by some white guy using an AR-15 instead of being butchered by some illegal immigrant who had absolutely no business being in this country, Democrats, including ‘Little Dick’ and Mr. Murphy, would now be marching in the streets demanding the law be changed. The left is nothing more than a bunch of hypocrites on steroids. Blaming all of this on guns is like blaming destructive fires on matches, all cars for auto accident deaths, or blaming water for floods. But it matters not to Democrats, they want what they want.
And does anyone else find it ironic that two liberal congressmen from Illinois can see fit to blame the NRA for any shooting when their city of Chicago has more shootings in a weekend than most cities have in a year? Well done you flaming morons! ‘Little Dick’ is just one more Democrat, on what has become a very long list of many, who represents everything wrong in this country including in the city of Chicago, home of the strictest gun laws in the country. Maybe instead of worrying about Florida and the NRA perhaps ‘Little Dick’ should worry more about those things a bit closer to home before trying to impose his leftist agenda on the rest of the country.
