Bill Clinton asked one question that left every American red with rage
Democrats celebrated the tragedies in El Paso and Dayton as a chance to go on offense.
But in their rush to exploit these horrific events for political gain, the party crossed an unthinkable line.
And then Bill Clinton asked one question that left every American red with rage.
Democrats believe in never letting a crisis go to waste.
That is especially true after every mass shooting.
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media love these events because they put Republicans on the defensive.
But Democrats risk looking overly political.
And that’s exactly what happened when Bill Clinton took to social media to demand Congress ban so-called “assault weapons.”
Former President Bill Clinton took it a step further and renewed calls for an “assault weapons” ban, despite the fact that the 1994 ban did not have any tangible effect.
“How many more people have to die before we reinstate the assault weapons ban & the limit on high-capacity magazines & pass universal background checks?” Clinton asked.
“After they passed in 1994, there was a big drop in mass shooting deaths,” he claimed. “When the ban expired, they rose again. We must act now.”
The victims’ families haven’t even buried all their dead and former president Clinton and many Democrats are looking to exploit their loss for political gain.
This path proved to be politically disastrous for Democrats in the past.
After Bill Clinton rammed a 1994 so-called “assault weapons” ban through Congress, and after Barack Obama failed to impose a national gun registration database in 2013, voters punished Democrats in the next election for trying to turn a tragedy into political victory.
With the 2020 election 15 months away, Democrats could be walking into another political buzzsaw by following Clinton’s push for new gun bans.
