VP Harris Pushes Gun Control During Speech On Texas School Shooting

As horrific details were still unfolding surrounding the heinous mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Texas, Vice President Kamala Harris was speaking at the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies. Much like the speech that would be given by President Joe Biden that night, Harris focused more on the political agenda promoted by the Democrats than the victims and their families. 

With Americans shocked and parents holding their children a little longer this morning, the Vice President stated, “Enough is enough. As a nation, we have to have the courage to take action. And understand the nexus between what makes for reasonable and sensible public policy to ensure something like this never happens again.”

On top of the statements given by both Harris and President Biden, California Governor Gavin Newson also called for more gun control nationwide. Following the Democratic agenda that has being pushed for decades when it come to guns in America, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer added, “Every time there is an incident like this you hear about efforts to deal with mentally unstable people who can certainly go out there and buy a weapon of mass destruction, go out there and buy a gun or rifle or some sort of assault-type weapon and go to there and eventually start killing wonderful, wonderful, people.”

Releasing his own statement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, “He shot and killed, horrifically, incomprehensibly, 14 students and killed a teacher. Mr. Ramos, the shooter, he, himself, is deceased and it is believed that responding officers killed him.” He continued, “Bottom line is this, however, and that is when parents drop their kids off at school, they have every expectation to know that they’re gonna be able to pick their child up when that school day ends, and there are families who are in mourning right now and the state of Texas is in mourning with them for the reality that these parents are not gonna be able to pick up their children.” 

According to the latest reports, the shooter, 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, killed 19 children and 2 teachers before being killed himself.

Harris: “When we need to control guns, guns will be controlled. The essence of gun control is the control of guns. To keep our children safe means to make them safe.”

Hey, lady, to be politically incorrect you ignored the REAL lunatic fringe! Other than firearms what was the common factor of the last two shootings, Texas and Buffalo as well as many in the past such as columbine and Aurora to name JUST two of the many more. And don’t tell me about their rights, you would ruin the rights of others for just a few. To kind of paraphrase Ronald Dworkin, the value of a right is in proportion to its social cost, and the 1st 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th all have social costs even if the cost is the time required to conduct a trial.
Didn’t I read somewhere that after the Buffalo situation the White House asked some of the media NOT to emphasize the shooter’s mental state? Was that so the “administration” could espouse gun control?

The people are scared. When the people are scared, they seek to protect themselves. The people seek to protect themselves with devices that are, at least, equal to what threatens them. Guns, in the hands of crazies, threaten them; therefore, they buy guns for protection. Self Defense is instinct in ALL living things, except Demokratz.
Demokratz seek protection for themselves and deny that same protection to the people. Demokratz build walls to protect themselves; however, they tell the people that walls won’t protect them. The Demokratz take money from the people to purchase their personal armed protection; however, they tell the people that, since they can’t take others money, they don’t deserve protection.
The Demokratz have money to hire their own protection; therefore, they have money to hire the protection needed to protect the children. It’s more just!
