After the tragic shooting in Boulder Colorado this last week, President-Elect Joe Biden has called for a ban on all “assault weapons” as well as an onslaught of other gun control measures.
Yesterday, Biden spoke to a small gathering of hand-picked White House reporters, “Why are you all here? Oh yeah, the… thing.
“Look, I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, or …minute, to take common-sense steps that will save lives in the future. President Kamala Harris and I urge our colleagues in the House and Senate to act! Da–it! I banned assault weapons and high-capacity clips once, I can do it again. Okay, so it didn’t make a difference in mass shootings, in fact, mass shootings went up… but I tried, and that’s all that mattered!”
“If I learned anything from my time serving with former President Barak Housein Obama, I learned never waste a tragedy! We get to do anything we want… no wait, um, he said to say, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING! That’s it. The public eats that sh-t up! Is this mic on? Where’s my dog?”
As far as the recent Colorado Shooting is concerned, TV talking heads and celeb gun-control advocates took the occasion to quickly (and incorrectly) blame the most popular fall guy, the dreaded WHITE MAN.
“Tamir Rice was a 12-year-old black child. Police shot him in 1.7 sec & let him suffer in agonizing pain for 4 min & die,” author and lawyer Qasim Rashid tweeted. “Colorado terrorist is a grown white man who killed 10 people including a cop. Cops arrested him alive & helped him to a stretcher for immediate medical care.”Hemal Jhaveri (@hemjhaveri) March 23, 2021
“Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not,”Deadspin senior editor Julie DiCaro tweeted on Monday.
USA Today race and inclusion editor Hemal Jhaveri responded to DiCaro: “It’s always an angry white man. Always.”Hemal Jhaveri
Soon after the shooting, police identified the suspect as a 21 year old Colorado resident, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa. Who, as his name suggests is a proud Muslim from Syria — who by the way, hates Donald Trump.
“It’s always an angry white man. Always.”
His family also observed Alissa wearing a tactical vest, mumbling to himself, and playing with his gun. They did take the gun away from him, but he soon found it again. Where did they hide it? Under his bed?
Alissa had a history of mental illness, troubling behavior and was convicted of third-degree assault in 2017. Any of these would have prevented him from buying a firearm based on existing laws. And, if the family had reported his behavior as they should have, none of this would have happened. And let’s not forget stores don’t often allow guns or that… murder is already VERY illegal.
Obviously, MORE laws are required to prevent mass shootings. Thank goodness President Elect Joe Biden is brave enough to climb the steps to a brighter, safer future. As long as we do ‘something’, right?
