Blog: Stop Using Tragedies To Score Political Points

Another mass shooting. This one worst than many of the others.

As I write this blog, 59 people have died as a man fired shot after shot on helpless people gathered at a concert in Las Vegas, Nevada. This person was on the 32nd floor of a hotel and started firing on people down below.

This is a tragedy. Just like others we’ve had in other places.

And sure enough, Democrats came out, one by one, to demand stricter gun control laws. I am tired of them trying to take advantage of these tragedies by demanding that we enact laws that would do nothing to stop these events.

This killer was 64 years old, had no criminal record, and had no record of mental illness. So, he would have passed ANY of the background checks or other measures that these Democrats keep screaming for.

My prayers go out to all of the people affected by this tragedy.
