By now we’ve already been arrested by the shock of yet another heinous shooting at a US school.
According to reports, as many as 17 people were killed by a teenage gunman.
And yet, within hours of the tragedy with some victims still clinging to life in the hospital, Democrats are jumping to exploit it for political gain.
It’s the same play from the same despicable playbook after the shooting at the congressional baseball game last year.
House Democrat Whip Steny Hoyer droned, “How long before our nation comes together to address this crisis responsibly?”
Of course, by ‘responsibly’ he means confiscate guns. Because, you know, mentally disturbed guns kill people.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
At least 17 people were killed as a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., opened fire on campus today.
Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old expelled from the school for disciplinary reasons, fled the scene but was apprehended and arrested a short time later. Misspellings of his first name were circulating earlier among media and social media.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told reporters that the shooting began outside of the school. Twelve of the victims were found in buildings, two were killed outside on school grounds, and one person was shot to death outside of school property on Pine Island Road. Two more shooting victims died at a hospital.
“This is an unspeakable tragedy. It is nothing short of true evil to attack innocent children,” House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said in a statement. “While we now wait to learn more, we are so grateful to law enforcement and all those who brought this horror to an end. Let us all keep the victims in our hearts. A long night lies ahead for many families. Right now, the whole country is standing with the Parkland community.”
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) asked, “How long before our nation comes together to address this crisis responsibly? For how much longer must students, teachers, movie-goers, travelers, workers, public servants, concert-attendees, worshippers, and Americans of every kind have to live in fear of suddenly being in the wrong place at the wrong time?”
