Democrats just can’t help themselves.
Nancy Pelosi is leading the pack in exploiting the tragedy in Parkland, Florida.
And she just made an insane comment that’s sealed the Democrats fate in 2018.
Just 24 hours after the tragedy in Florida, Pelosi was already politicizing the deaths of 17 innocents.
She attacked gun rights supporters and the National Rifle Association claiming they
“cannot decide what the character of America is.”
“Thursday at her weekly press briefing, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) addressed the Parkland, FL, school shooting.
Pelosi said, “It is an assault on our whole country, and they are paying the price for our inaction. As I have said on the floor many times, whose political survival in this body is more important than the survival of our children? For example most recently yesterday, Sandy Hook for example, or on the streets of our cities. Who of us in here is more important, whose political survival is more important than that? Nobody’s.”
She added, “We have to be bold. We have to go forward. We cannot let the National Rifle Association —however, they get their money and that’s another subject —to decide what the character of America is.”
Pelosi was not alone.
Both former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden jumped at the chance to use this horrible event to demand politicians strip the Second Amendment rights away from Americans.
We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we're doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.

I am at a loss for what more to say. I grieve with the families in Parkland today. I grieve with the families across the country who have suffered loss due to gun violence. Congress has a moral obligation to take action and spare more families from this violence.

This is the usual emotional blackmail routine Democrats engage in after horrific tragedies.
But if Pelosi and the Democrats want to make 2018 a referendum on gun control they are playing a losing hand.
The 1994 and 2014 midterms took place after Democrat Presidents pushed gun grabs.
In 1994, Bill Clinton’s assault weapons ban was signed into law.
Barack Obama’s national gun registration scheme failed in 2013.
But both times in the following midterm elections Democrats were wiped off the map.
President Trump and the GOP would be wise to stand by the Second Amendment and the Americans who put them in office.
