Never under-estimate the eagerness of a politician to take advantage of a horrifying tragedy and capitalize on the suffering of others in order to promote their favorite pet agenda. In this case, the President and his pet gun-grabber agenda.
Ya know… dead bodies are really a great thing for a politician if he’s crass and tasteless. My personal view is that the bodies should be cold before we turn their tragic memories into a political ad, but I guess CrassBama see it otherwise. This was not a disturbed white youth who murdered 9 black parishioners after all… no, this was an evil metal gun that jumped right out of whitey’s hand and started shooting people all by itself.
Does the public know how he got the gun? The President claims it was all too easy. I wonder if he went through the background check… Okay, if guns are the problem, why are the feds looking at a hate-crime investigation? Wouldn’t that suggest we needed hate-control rather than gun-control? How come the only person in this church with a gun is the bad guy? Aren’t there any gun-toting followers of Jesus in the Carolinas who know how to shoot? I would have thought so.
Easy to get guns… I wonder if it’s actually easy for criminals to get guns and hard for decent folks? Well regardless, I don’t personally think that should be the discussion for today. I think we should let the bodies get cold first before we politicize their memory. Yeah, just kinda sensitive that way I guess.
