Skip to comments.Forget Gaffe - Parkland Blood On Biden's Hands
Posted on 08/21/2019 3:25:54 PM PDT by Starman417
The mouth that roared made yet another competence-questioning gaffe recently when he said survivors of the Parkland school shooting visited him in the White House while he was Vice-President. As Breitbart reported:
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) made another gaffe Saturday, telling reporters in Iowa that Parkland students visited him while he was vice president in the aftermath of the school shooting, even though the incident occurred in 2018 over a year after he left office.David Hogg, one of the surviving students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who has become the media face of those pushing increased gun control blamed the NRA and the GOP after the tragedy:
Biden brought up the ongoing conversation on gun violence in the U.S. Saturday and told a group of reporters in Iowa that students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School visited him while he was vice president, even though the shooting which resulted in 17 fatalities and over a dozen injuries happened on February 14, 2018, over a year after he left the White House.
As bad as the gaffe was, worse yet is the fact that legislation Joe Biden supported made a massacre such as what happened at Parkland possible.
The Republican Party currently controls the White House and both chambers of Congress, while the Supreme Court has a 5-4 conservative majority something David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, pointed out during an interview with his classmates on Sunday's "Meet the Press."Parenthetically, young Mr. Hoggs mother, Rebecca Boldrick, is an ardent anti-Trumper with frequent Facebook posts sliming our 45th President, one of which has a picture of son David sitting at a CNN anchor desk during a studio tour. It might be assumed her son started with a similar anti-Trump bias even before the shooting.
Responding to Trump's tweet, Hogg said: "How dare you. You are in that exact position right now, and you want to look back on our history and blame the Democrats? That's disgusting.
"You're the president," he continued. "You're supposed to bring this nation together, not divide us. How dare you. Children are dying, and their blood is on your hands because of that.
Young Mr. Hoggs emotional statement notwithstanding, if there is anyone who has blood on his hands because of the shooting at his high school, it is one the hands of the former vice-president who was the sponsor of the legislation that made Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School a gun-free zone and David Hogg and his fellow students sitting ducks for an armed predator.
Whats stopping teachers from bringing guns to work right now? The Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990. Sponsored by then-Sen. Joe Biden and signed into law by then-President George H.W. Bush the law makes it illegal for anyone to knowingly possess a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school zone .Perhaps they should. President Trump as a candidate opposed the idea of schools being gun-free zones:
Could the Supreme Court overturn the Gun-Free School Zones Act? Maybe. They did it before. Five years after passage, the court declared the law unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause. But Congress amended the bill and President Bill Clinton signed it back into law ins 1996. The Supreme Court has not ruled on the issue ever since.
Donald Trump likes the idea of teachers bearing arms in the K-12 classroom. I will get rid of gun-free zones on schools you have to, the Republican nominee told a crowd at a campaign rally in Burlington, Vt., in 2016. My first day, it gets signed, okay? My first day. Theres no more gun-free zones.His short-sighted optimism aside, that seems even less likely now amidst an emotional tide which has cast reason, logic, facts, and common sense aside. Why should we learn what the Israelis already know, that the only way to protect our schoolchildren from a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Instead we irrationally put the onus on guns like the AR15 which, contrary to media and political hype, is not an assault weapon. Assault is a behavior and not a weapon and further restricting the access of law-abiding potential victims from defensive firearms is not the answer.
The fact is that there is a sharp spike in school shootings since Joe Biden sponsored the Gun Free School Zones Act of 1990:

1,000 feet is 2/10 of a mile.
I may have to reroute how I get to the range to comply, maybe by way of Omaha.......
He is NOT a survivor, he was at HOME and pedaled his little bike up there AFTERWARDS!!!
No, he wasn’t a survivor, however:
Hogg was at the school, in a completely different building, during the shooting. After evacuating, and being cleared, the kids were sent home. Hogg got his recorder and pedaled his bike back to the school later, when he began collecting voice-notes.
Worked well for the mighty D...
Are you channeling Charlie Daniels?
Maybe if Obama hadnt tried to effect school discipline quotas from DC the shooter wouldnt have been at school period.
