In his usual highly educated and colorful language, Beto O’Rourke took to Twitter yesterday evening to pander to his Leftist-base yet again regarding gun control; attacking House and Senate Republicans for what he calls “complete inaction” regarding gun control.
We don’t know how many have been killed. We don’t know the motivation. But here’s what we do know: This is fucked up. pic.twitter.com/NRvyPfUjiM

In the wake of another mass shooting that yesterday, left 4 killed, 21 others injured in Odessa, Texas, O’Rourke was not alone in his attacks. Other Democratic Presidential Candidates also when on the offensive, attacking both Conservative members of Congress and the Trump Administration; calling for swift action to curb future attacks.
I’m heartsick for the victims of this latest mass shooting in Odessa and Midland. We shouldn’t have to live with this near daily fear and horror. We’ve already lost far too many to gun violence—Congress must act now. https://t.co/Hgdb7h6kpI

Keeping the Midland and Odessa community and the victims in my thoughts and prayers. Grateful to first responders who ran into harm’s way.
I’m sick of this. America is sick of this.
We need to act.

Beginning on Day One in office, I will take executive action to reduce gun violence—closing dangerous loopholes in gun sales, cracking down on gun manufacturers, and investing in communities impacted by gun violence.

In traditional format both in speech and text, Democrats continued their rant laded with “unrealistic promises” aimed at both current and future gun owners; as well as, firearm and ammunition manufacturers across the country.
According to law enforcement, the first shootings began with a traffic stop by a Texas Department of Public Safety officer just after 3 pm, CST. Upon initiating the traffic stop, the attending officer was shot by the suspect, who then fled the scene, shooting people at random as he sped away. According to law enforcement, the suspect then ditched his car and allegedly stole a USPS delivery truck, driving to an entertainment center; continuing his rampage. The 30-year-old white male was shot and killed by responding officers.
As stated by O’Rourke, no motive or additional information has been provided by law enforcement as to what “motivated” the suspect in this tragedy. As in the past, the response of Democrats is utterly unaffected by motive; for their responses continue to place the blame squarely on the “apparatus” used in such an attack. What is also disregarded as Democrats continually attack gun manufacturers is the number of jobs provided to Americans within the industry. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), manufacturers of firearms, ammunition, and supplies, along with the companies that sell and distribute these products, provide well-paying jobs in America and pay significant amounts in tax to the state and Federal governments. The Economic Impact driven by the firearm industry is something that the Democrats refuse to acknowledge. The following statistical data shows the industry’s vital contribution:
Economic Impact of the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Industry in the United States
Senator O’Rourke is correct, “This is f*$%!@ up.” Despite the Democrats continued attacks, each of them continues to ignore the need for national increased mental health assistance for our country and its citizens. Each loosed-lipped Liberal intentionally ignores the fact that there is a direct correlation between mental defect and disease and the disregard for human life what’s more, in all their “pitches and promises” of a national, socialistic, “free healthcare program” for our country, never once do they mention increasing funding for mental institutions or assistance programs.
So what is the Liberal Final Solution regarding guns? Simplistically stated, “Attack and Takeaway” is the Democratic Strategy! From manufacturers of both arms and ammo to the makers of scopes, magazines, barrels, and bags, the Liberal Agenda states, we don’t need you or want you in our country! Tell that to the 311,991 people employed within the firearm industry; tell that to the 52,087,506,400 dollars provided to our national economy; tell that to the 5.5 million NRA Life Members; tell that to the three-in-ten Americans that own guns.
While the tragedies will continue, until this nation attacks the actual problem rather than the device of expression, innocent lives will continue to be lost. My grandfather used to tell me on the days of the rifle range when I would miss my target, “Son, it is the Indian, not the arrow.” The Indian is who needs fixing, not the arrow. The mentally compromised need help – not the guns. Democrats are good at passing the blame on the device, not the design of the attacker. If Democrats have their way, in light of yesterday’s knife attack by an asylum-seeking Afghan in France that left one person dead and eight others injured, knife manufacturers like Mercer Genesis will be next on the Democratic “chopping block.”
