The Democratic political establishment has said for decades, and what was publically promoted by former Obama White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, You “Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste”
In a perfect example of how to politicize a tragedy for political purposes, almost immediately following the murders of 19 children and two teachers in a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, the left gaslight nearly every corner of our nation once again stirring up the divisive nationwide debate on gun control.
President Biden did his part for the anti-gun party by repeating one of his gun-grabbing Matras saying that the constitutional right to own weapons “is not absolute,” and never was.
On Wednesday Biden called again for new restrictions on gun purchases and ownership.
In reference to the constitutional amendment that entitles Americans the “right to bear arms,” Biden said: “The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed, You couldn’t own a cannon. You couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons. There’s always been limitations.”
The law, part of the 1791 Bill of Rights, states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Biden asked “when in God’s name will we do what needs to be done” about the “amount of carnage that goes on in this country,” as he pushed for what he called “common sense” gun control laws in the wake of one of the nation’s worst shootings.
“While they clearly will not prevent every tragedy, we know certain ones will have significant impact and have no negative impact on the Second Amendment,” Biden said of gun control laws.
The president’s comments drew intense criticism from conservatives and gun rights activists, who noted the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms includes the words “shall not be infringed”. One GOP Florida senator earlier Wednesday tweeted at Biden, “try to take our guns and you’ll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place.”
I have news for the embarrassment that claims to be our President — try to take our guns and you’ll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place.

The shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde ignited a firestorm, coming just 10 days after a mass shooting at a supermarket store in Buffalo, New York. The 18-year-old Texas gunman purchased two AR-15-style rifles legally before opening fire at the elementary school.
Democrats in Congress renewed calls to pass major gun control legislation, such as an expanded background check bill stalled in the House and a federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.
With the Senate divided 50/50, any significant legislation attacking the rights guaranteed in the Seconang Amendment is destined to fail, regarded of how many fake news stories run on failing networks like CNN.
A much better, and more constitutional, use of time and resources would include using funds from the over-inflated Department of Education’s budget to help states retrofit schools across the land to ensure another monster can get inside again, thus preventing another mass shooting like what needlessly took place at the Robb Elementary School.
