Democrats are completely out of control with their hysterical rhetoric and disgusting political stunts.

We previously reported that in the hours after 26 innocent parishioners were massacred at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday, leftists took to Twitter to both mock the faith of the victims and castigate conservatives for standing up for our gun rights. The hysteria from the anti-rights crowd was beyond sickening, and resulted in a massive push back from Americans pissed off these idiots were politicizing a tragedy before the bodies were even removed from the church.

Joining the “blue check club” on Twitter were Democrat members of Congress, who also politicized the tragedy literally within an hour or two of the news breaking.

Yahoo! reported:

Senator Chris Murphy, one of the Democratic Party’s most outspoken supporters of gun control legislation has criticised Congress for its repeated failures to take action on the gun control issue.

In a statement, Mr Murphy noted several other recent shootings in the US, including the attacks in Las Vegas last month, in Orlando last year, and at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015.

“The terrifying fact is that no one is safe so long as Congress chooses to do absolutely nothing in the face of this epidemic,” Mr Murphy said. “The time is now for Congress to shed its cowardly cover and do something.”

Before becoming a senator, Mr Murphy was a representative for Newtown, Connecticut, the site of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

“The paralysis you feel right now – the impotent helplessness that washes over you as news of another mass slaughter scrolls across the television screen – isn’t real,” Mr Murphy said. “It’s a fiction created and methodically cultivated by the gun lobby, designed to assure that no laws are passed to make America safer, because those laws would cut into their profits.”

He continued: “As my colleagues go to sleep tonight, they need to think about whether the political support of the gun industry is worth the blood that flows endlessly onto the floors of American churches, elementary schools, movie theaters, and city streets.”

Murphy wasn’t alone, either.

Lovely. These people sure do know how to turn the stomachs of ordinary Americans, don’t they?

As our own Sassy Liberty previously reported, Democrats have a penchant for politicizing moments of silence for victims of tragedies. Following the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, which saw 58 people heartlessly murdered, Democrat lawmakers fled the floor of the House as it honored the fallen from the attack, all so they too could score some cheap political points.

But not to be outdone by his Democrat colleagues, Congressman Ted Lieu of California took things to an entirely new level on Monday during a moment of silence being held to honor the victims of the senseless act of violence. The Hill reported that Lieu took the opportunity to engage in political grandstanding during a time that Congress was mourning with our nation, effectively spitting in the faces of the deceased, all so he could score some cheap political points.

[Emphasis mine]

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) says he walked out of a moment of silence on the House floor for victims of the mass shooting in Texas, saying he “will not be silent” after yet another massacre.

Lieu posted a video on his Facebook page Monday night after the moment of silence, during which he said he was “heartbroken about the children and adults that were killed in the worst mass shooting in Texas history this Sunday.”

“My colleagues right now are doing a moment of silence in the House of Representatives’ chambers,” Lieu said. “I respect their right to do that and I myself have participated in many of them.”

“But I can’t do this again, I’ve been to too many moments of silences. In just my short period in congress three of the worst mass shootings in us history have occurred. I will not be silent.”

How cute.

Unfortunately for Mr. Lieu, this tragedy was 100 percent avoidable, only it’s not any of his ideas that would help solve it.

Come to find out, the Obama administration dropped the ball in this ordeal…big time. In fact, had members of Obama’s administration been as passionate about enforcing existing laws as they are about creating new ones, 26 people would still be with us today because the shooter, who’s name I won’t ever be mentioning again, wouldn’t have been able to get his hands on the weapons he used to slaughter the innocent.

According to Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller, Obama’s bureaucrats failed to inform the NICS system about the shooter’s crimes in the past.

Additionally, the shooter lied in his Form 4473, which is a felony, but Obama’s Justice Department failed to prosecute him for it, which if they had, would have stripped the man of his Second Amendment rights.

Lastly, while Lieu and his other Democrats continue to call for a ban on so-called “assault rifles,” it turns out that the local hero, Stephen Willeford, used an AR-15 to first engage, then chase off the shooter, saving countless lives in the process.

So yeah, about that gun control, Democrats…

This case proves that the only way we’re ever going to be able to prevent more incidents like Texas in the future is to ensure there’s far more “good guys” out there who are armed and trained to properly use their weapons. After all, when seconds count, police are only minutes away through no fault of their own.

So it only makes sense that we do everything we can to ensure those closest to these tragedies have the tools they need to react to them, rather than disarming innocents and creating more target-rich environments.
