House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to bring forth gun control legislation following Saturday night's shooting in Odessa and Midland, Texas.
Pelosi released the following statement about the tragic shooting:
Americas heart is broken by the senseless and horrific mass shooting tonight in Texas. The prayers of the nation are with the friends and families of the victims and the entire Midland and Odessa communities, and our deepest gratitude goes out to the first responders, who are bringing help and healing during this tragic time.
Enough is enough. Every day, the epidemic of gun violence inflicts a devastating toll in communities in every corner of our country, forcing far too many to endure heartbreak and tragedy. The Republican Senate must end its obstruction and finally pass the commonsense, bipartisan, House-passed gun violence prevention legislation that the country is demanding.
Tonight and in the days to come, all Americans stand with the Midland and Odessa communities. May it be a comfort to those grieving the loss of their loved ones that so many mourn with and pray for them at this difficult time.
Schumer took to Twitter to call on McConnell to bring forth H.R. 9, the universal background check bill Democrats passed in the House.
Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, & everyone injured in the shooting in Odessa & Midland, TX.
Thank you to the first responders who risked their lives to stop the threat. @senatemajldr should bring up H.R. 8 the week Congress returns. We must #endgunviolence .
It's always amazing to watch anti-gunners call for gun control legislation before we know anything about the gunman. We don't know his identity, other than him being a white man in his 30s. We don't know what kind of firearm he used, other than it was a "rifle." We don't know how he obtained his firearm. We. Know. Nothing. And yet these people make assumptions about how some gun control law could have prevented the tragedy.
Of course, it’s what they always do. No ideas, just blathering on about GC.
The usual out of control advocates for out of control government are out of control again.
“The government shall make no law.......”
I'm not for the left's "toxic masculinity" bs, but we need to have a conversation about what's going wrong and what we have to do to fix it.
All of the shootings of convenience are engineered by the Creep State (intelligence community) where a roster of available shooters that have been drugged since early childhood is maintained.
These people are like parrots. Something tragic happens, and they press a button, figuratively speaking, and parrot back the talking points.
Unless, of course, what they mean by gun control is all out gun confiscation.
>> “Something is going seriously wrong with a lot of men out there for this to keep happening.” <<
These “shooters” are created in childhood by the use of psychotropic drugs to cure “ADD” and “ADHD.”
Teachers are trained to recogize children that can be diverted into this use through drugging.
These two are like an badly house broken dog. Teach it to go outside and it still pees on the carpet. They’ll never change.
Lets keep this FReepathon moving and git 'er done, Folks!
Pelosi And Schumer Waste No Time Calling For Gun Control Following Texas Shooting.
Gun control, my ass. Its about people control and power. Rat bastards.
When a Democrat says gun control, they mean for them to control all the guns.
Australian style is what they have in mind.
Make the penalties bad enough and people will turn them in.
Someday Biden or one of them will accidentally call a press conference to condemn the free access to guns in America that led to today’s shooting===but will get confused by the time zones and say that BEFORE the shooting which takes place a few minutes later.
It’s rather like pulling a string on a wind-up doll, isn’t it?
If Pelosi and Schumer were in power at the time of Cain and Abel (which they very well may have been), they’d be calling for rock control. Anything to get suckers to vote for them so they can continue to live their lavish lifestyles.
Posting of the centuries-long set of Ten Commandments in classrooms across America--a set that include "Thou shalt not kill. . . ." as one of the "don'ts" couldn't do any harm.
Such a posting shouldn't harm the "sensibilities" of citizens who prefer order and respect for one another.
Most of these shooters are in their teens and twenties.
Roseanne’s son posted about the problems associated with these psychotropic drugs....the chemical castration of boys. I think he’s right!
Some kids just can’t handle those damn drugs.
Also, stop expelling God from the classroom. Some “teachers” treat a Bible like it’s a vial of anthrax. Enough of that liberal nonsense.
You're right on, well said.
