Sen. Chris Murphy Tweets About Banning Assault Rifles After Texas Shooting, There’s Just One Problem

This guy made a fool of himself.

Over the weekend, Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, decided to try winning a few easy “woke” points by posting something negative about “assault rifles” on Twitter in light of the recent school shooting in Texas.

What Murphy apparently didn’t know before he went and made a fool of himself, was that there was no “assault rifle” used in the shooting at Santa Fe High school.

So much fail, so little time.

And the real #2A isn’t absolute. It allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.

Despite rumors to the contrary, an AR-15 was not used in the Texas shooting. The killer used a shotgun and a .38 revolver to commit his crime – neither of which is an “assault rifle.”

Several recent mass shootings were perpetrated with semi-automatic rifles, and the rumor was going around on Friday that an AR-15 had been used. It’s certainly possible that Sen. Murphy was unaware of the actual weapons the shooter carried. He may have simply assumed that a semi-automatic rifle was used, and sent out the tweet in order to scold those who support the Second Amendment right of Americans to bear such arms.

This scenario seems unlikely due to the fact that the tweet was sent out at 10:44 a.m. on Saturday, approximately 24 hours after the shooting occurred.

It’s also possible that Murphy knew exactly what weapons were used in the shooting, and decided that a tweet about “automatic rifles” would sound good to individuals in his base who aren’t familiar with firearms.

Although the senator doesn’t specifically mention the shooting in his tweet, one can deduce that he was pointing toward the shooting. The tweet was sent a day after the deadly rampage from which the United States is still reeling, and it was preceded by three other tweets – one about the shooting, and two about the “inaction” of lawmakers on gun control.

At the end of the day, it appears this guy was simply attempting to connect with his base, to look like he’s hip and on top of the hottest issues facing the nation, which translates into more votes and by extension, job security. It’s always about the career with politicians.

The bottom line is, “assault rifles” don’t really exist, because any kind of gun or rifle, if it is used against another human being, is technically used in an assault. If a ban against these kind of weapons becomes law, what’s to stop the government from moving the goal posts on the definition of an assault weapon?

It’s likely that this move is being used by the left to get a foot in the door, to disarm conservatives with talk of “supporting the 2A,” and just  wanting to keep dangerous guns off the streets. It’s a classic strategy.

Let’s hope the American people are smart enough not to fall for it.

Tucker Carlson: ‘Damning’ Evidence Against Hunter Biden ‘Vanished’ After Being Sent To Me

Sounds peculiar!

During his Wednesday evening show, Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell regarding the Biden crime family. No need to chit-chat. Let’s just get right into it. From Fox News: Tucker didn’t describe the documents other than to say they were damning, and that they came from a new source and related to the Biden crime family. Tucker received word that the documents had been sent to him while he was in LA interviewing Tony Bobulinski for yesterday’s blockbuster interview. He asked his producer in New York to send them to him as quick as he could. Tucker said they used a very comment package courier, one that we would all be familiar with, but that the document never arrived.

Biden’s Brother Confronted About Family’s Foreign Biz Deals, Walks Inside & Won’t Answer

Typical.

A book that was released not too long ago details how multiple members of the Biden family became rich thanks to Joe’s position as vice president of the United States. In other words, Joe leveraged his public position as one of the most powerful men in the world to his advantage, which in turn benefitted his relatives. When confronted on Wednesday evening, Jim Biden was virtually speechless. From Fox News: EXCLUSIVE: Jim Biden, the brother of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, refused to answer questions Wednesday when approached by Fox News outside a house in Maryland about claims the former vice president had knowledge about the family’s overseas business ventures. Approached at a residence on the Eastern Shore, Jim Biden repeatedly rebuffed questions in his driveway as Fox News asked questions from a distance in the street. CONTINUED: “I don’t want to comment about anything,” Jim Biden said. Asked if he cared to answer questions, Biden said: “Nope.” What more do Democrats need to know about Joe and his corrupt family? Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he done anything to benefit America during his decades in public service? Come on, people. Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward.
