Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg has a clear view of where to place blame following deadly shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, this weekend. The South Bend, Ind., mayor pointed specifically to “weak gun safety” measures and white nationalism as the culprits, after the El Paso shooter was linked to anti-Mexican statements.
It didn’t take long for the dumb ass Demonrats to mouth off….and of course, they blame Trump, instead of the actual perpetrators of the crimes. It’s not the guns fault, it’s the nut jobs behind the gun.
“This is terrorism and we have to name it as such,” Buttigieg said, specifically calling it “white nationalist terrorism” in a conversation with host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”
“We need to acknowledge that this is a problem.” Buttigieg said, claiming that white nationalism has been “condoned at the highest levels” in Washington.
“Right now you see it being echoed by the White House and there is a measure of responsibility that you just can’t get away from,” he said. Buttigieg cited President Trump’s comment that there were “very fine people” on both sides after a deadly attack at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
President Trump condemned the El Paso shooting early Sunday morning, calling it “hateful” and “an act of cowardice.”
Addressing gun safety, Buttigieg asserted that there is a need for tougher gun laws to help prevent future mass shootings in the “only country in the world with more guns than people.” He said “most gun owners” are in favor of universal background checks, and accused the National Rifle Association of not having the American people in mind when fighting stricter regulation.
Dumb ass, we already have background checks.
“The NRA no longer speaks for gun owners, it speaks for gun corporations,” he said.
Booty you idiot, the NRA IS gun owners.
The Democratic candidate stopped short of calling for repealing the Second Amendment, but indicated that it should not be used so broadly as to prevent the government from protecting Americans.
“We cannot allow the Second Amendment to be a death sentence for thousands of Americans a year,” he said.
