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.

I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment.

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.

Dem Rep. Implies National Guard Members Who Voted Trump May Target Libs At Inauguration

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
