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

This guy made a fool of himself.

Published

on

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.

BOMBSHELL: Judge Who Blocked Trump’s Border Wall Donated $30,000 to Obama & Dems

Hmm. Anything fishy here?

Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner: A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee. U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. But wait! There’s more… Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.” Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump. Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico. Democrat hearts are breaking across the country. So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every…

WATCH: CNN Says Stuttering Pelosi Tweet Is A ‘Smear,’ But Nancy’s Attacks On POTUS Are Valid

Double standard, much??

When President Trump sends a tweet of Speaker Pelosi stuttering, it’s a “smear.” When Pelosi and Democrats say 45 is mentally unfit for office, it’s no big deal. That’s how things work in Liberalville. Up is down and nothing makes sense. For your entertainment, enjoy the musings of CNN’s Brian Stelter… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132744472037511168?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132744472037511168&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F421760-cnns-brian-stelter-claims-showing-pelosi-problems-is-smear-but-her-attack-on-trumps-mental-health-shows-real-concerns-about-him%2F Due to the conservative policies of President Trump, unemployment in America just hit a 50-year low. Unemployment now stands at 3.6 percent, which is undoubtedly a milestone for the Trump administration – and the United States, as a whole. Women and black Americans, in particular, are thriving. And yet, far-left Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doesn’t see it that way – continuing to play politics at every turn. Pelosi argues that the low unemployment rate is “promising,” but it doesn’t do enough. WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION! Here’s her official statement (bold mine)… “The April jobs report numbers show some promising news, yet these gains hide the true weight of the economic uncertainty felt by millions of hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, the evidence shows that most of the economic gains continue to benefit those already well-off. We must do more to ensure that the economy is benefiting every family in every community, and that all Americans have the opportunity to move ahead in our economy. “Republicans’ shameful special interest agenda continues to undermine the health and financial security of middle class families across the country. This week, two years after House Republicans celebrated their vote to pass the outrageous Trumpcare bill, we still see the devastating impact of the GOP’s continuing health care sabotage. As the Administration continues its monstrous legal campaign to destroy pre-existing condition protections and every benefit provided by the Affordable Care Act, House Democrats are working on taking decisive action to lower health costs and…
