Liberals didn’t even wait for the bodies to turn cold in Texas before they jumped into the gun control debate.
And Chelsea Clinton was at the front of that line.
But she was immediately shut down for the lies she told.
Clinton – like other liberals – exploit tragedy for political gain.
When a lunatic gunman murdered 27 innocents at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland, Texas, the usual suspects leapt out of the woodwork to demand the government strip Americans of their gun rights.
Clinton retweeted a gun-grabber who had blasted Trump for signing a bill into law that restored the second amendment rights of Americans on disability.
No one should have to worry about loved ones in a house of worship, a nightclub, a school or at a concert. #SutherlandSprings you’re in my❤️

Trump signed a bill in February making it easier for people with severe mental illness to purchase guns legally. https://t.co/rd5oJg9EVi

But this had nothing to do with the shooting.
In fact, the gun control laws on the books failed.
The killer was able to purchase a weapon because the Obama administration failed to submit his domestic violence conviction in the Air Force to the background check system.
“Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 for two counts of Article 128 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, assault on his spouse and assault on their child, spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said Monday. Kelley received a bad conduct discharge, confinement for 12 months and a reduction in rank, she said.
The Air Force did not provide a date of the discharge, but his military record indicates he left the service in May 2014.
“Initial information indicates that Kelley’s domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database by the Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations,” an Air Force statement issued later Monday said.
The failure to relay the information prevented the entry of his conviction into the federal database that must be checked before someone is able to purchase a firearm. Had his information been in the database, it should have prevented gun sales to Kelley.”
The calls for more gun control fall flat.
No new laws would have stopped the shooting.
In fact, the only reason the killer was brought down was because a heroic Good Samaritan was armed and shot the madman—which forced him to flee the scene and ultimately die.
A citizen exercising their rights is what ended the massacre.
It was gun control that failed.
