Well, that didn’t take very long, did it? While Las Vegas police are still in the process of identifying the bodies of victims and gathering information on last night’s horrific mass shooting at a country music festival, opportunistic Democrats are already exploiting the tragic event to push their agenda to disarm Americans.
Not content with turning the Puerto Rican victims of Hurricane Maria into political pawns, a growing number of Dems are doing the same with those killed or injured during the rampage by a 64-year-old Nevada man named Stephen Paddock.
First out of the gate was none other than former President Barack Obama himself who tweeted:
Michelle & I are praying for the victims in Las Vegas. Our thoughts are with their families & everyone enduring another senseless tragedy.

And who else but:
Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.

Then there was the fanatical Trump hating Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy who was quick on the draw to blame Congress (translation: Republicans and Trump) for not moving quickly enough to roll back the Second Amendment rights of millions of law-abiding Americans.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) called for Congress to “get off its ass and do something” about gun violence after the deadly Las Vegas mass shooting that left at least 50 people dead.
Murphy, who emerged as a leading figure in the push for gun control legislation after the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in his state of Connecticut, said it was “positively infuriating” that Congress had failed to pass laws to stop gun violence.
“Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity. Last night’s massacre may go down as the deadliest in our nation’s history, but already this year there have been more mass shootings than days in the year,” Murphy said in a statement.
“This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren’t public policy responses to this epidemic. There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference.”
“It’s time for Congress to get off its ass and do something,” Murphy said.
Murphy’s fellow Democrat Richard Blumenthal took a rare break from conspiracy mongering about the Russians to also demand that Congress act to stop the violence by the flawed logic that taken to its faulty conclusion would ensure that only criminals were armed and citizens were at their mercy:
Also via The Hill:
“Although many details of this mass shooting remain unclear, one thing is certain: yet again, we are watching in horror as another American community is torn apart by the terrible devastation wrought by a gunman,” Blumenthal said in a statement Monday.
“It has been barely a year since what was previously the largest mass shooting in American history — the deadly attack at Pulse nightclub. In the interim, thousands more have been lost to the daily, ruthless toll of gun violence.”
“Still, Congress refuses to act. I am more than frustrated, I am furious,” Blumenthal said.
Murphy and Blumenthal fancy themselves as some sort of national authorities on the drive to confiscate the guns of Americans simply because their state was the one in which the Sandy Hook Elementary School murders took place, thereby giving them free reign on exploiting victims to push their vile and unconstitutional agenda.
They will soon be joined by even more members of their party for whom disarmament is a winning issue, right up there with race-baiting, transgender bathrooms and incredible yarns of the Kremlin infiltration of the highest levels of the United States government. Expect Trump and the NRA to take the bulk of the attacks because the Democrats are no longer driven by reason, they are just lashing out blindly, instinctive actions of the basest animal instincts of their psyches which have been eaten by terminal TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) and the fury over a lost election.
They are already multiplying faster than maggots on fresh roadkill:

Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times. We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.
— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) October 2, 2017
We are not powerless against such evil. We must take common sense, widely supported, steps to reduce such violence, agony and grievous loss.

As after #Orlando, I will NOT be joining my colleagues in a moment of silence on the House Floor that just becomes an excuse for inaction.
— Seth Moulton (@sethmoulton) October 2, 2017
My heart is with the victims, their families and friends, and the law enforcement officers who risked their lives to save others.

Cut Gabby a bit of slack, she actually has some credibility on this one thanks to being shot in the head by a lunatic gunman, unlike all of her loudmouthed fellow Democrats who only care about politics and ideology.
As of this time, the facts aren’t even in on the motivations of the shooter. For all anyone knows he could be a clone of the leftist fanatic who tried to murder the entire Republican congressional baseball team back in June – the targets were at a country music festival so that is at least a possibility.
But as the saying goes, fools rush in and there are no bigger – or more dangerous – fools than the completely insane Democrats.
