Before the totality of Orlando was fully understood, the American left was already windfall profiteering from it – advancing their agenda using those wounded and murdered as stage props.
Gun control, they said, was the answer.
Never mind that there are laws on the books that make it a crime to shoot someone, manufacture and use incendiary devices, take hostages, etc. Indeed, had Omar Mateen used a Buick to run over people leaving the night club, would liberals demand car control?
There’s a reason the left always turns to gun control in the aftermath of these incidents. Liberals are too naïve and too intellectually challenged to engage in serious conversations about these things. Today’s liberals prefer the unserious.
That’s why unserious topics – Harambe the gorilla’s rights, Fight for $15, Black Lives Matter, climate change, bathroom equality, microaggressions, intersectionality – dominate left-wing discourse. According to liberals, these unserious issues can all be resolved if we simply pass a law that makes everything better. Poverty, racism, the planet, people’s feelings can all be made better if we can just put the right laws on the books.
So it goes when serious things like Orlando happens. Liberals tell us, if we just pass more gun control laws, then bad things like Orlando will go away. If it were only that easy. Something tells me Omar Mateen would have killed a lot of people no matter what the gun control laws were.
Unfortunately, we can’t legislate away things like the Boston bombing, San Bernardino, Moore (Oklahoma), Chattanooga, or Orlando. To prevent the next attack from occurring, we need to have a serious, adult conversation about the threat.
And not unserious toddler talk about gun control.
