These Politicians Are Hypocrites


Mass shootings are a horrible thing, especially when the victims are primarily children. No one (and, yes, I do mean no one) wants these shootings to happen ever again.

So, anti-gunners talk about banning “assault weapons” as a solution and they talk about keeping guns out of the hands of those with evil intent. Then, mainstream media “news” only show us interviews with people who share anti-gunner talking points as they try to shape our society into one giant gun free zone.

So, the mainstream media and anti-gunner politicians blame pro-gun politicians and gun enthusiasts for creating a situation in which a kid in Florida was able to legally buy a gun and then do something terrible.

But, before you or anyone else buys into the hype from these anti-gunners, we need to have an honest discussion about whether anti-gunner politicians really want to ban “assault weapons” or if those politicians really want something else because the recent history shows that anti-gun politicians really don’t want to do anything.

How can I say that? Because they had the chance to do it when Obama was in office, and they didn’t. S.E. Cupp writes (for CNN, of all places),

They never, these journalists, ask those lawmakers what Democrats did about gun control when they had the White House, House and Senate for two years under Barack Obama. Because the answer is NOTHING.

These journalists never say: where was Democrats’ courage? Were Democrats too afraid to lose their seats, like they did in 1994, to pass another assault weapons ban?

Instead they shake their heads, wag their fingers, look at the camera and tell us to “Shut Up.” Because, journalism.

So, the next time an anti-gunner talks to you about pro-gun politicians being the problem or the NRA being the problem or you and me being the problem, call B.S. Ask them what anti-gunners did when they had control of Congress and of the Presidency. Ask them why their favorite politicians did none of the things that they were proposing then that they are proposing again now.

And then ask them if their favorite politicians really care about gun control of if it’s just another emotionally charged issue that they can use to drum up campaign funds and votes. Because, based on the history of the situation, it sure seems like what “anti-gunners” really want to see is more mass shootings to help them keep their jobs.


  1. Just wondering about that last LARGE sentence, “Because, journalism.” Having trouble deciphering it. Thanks! -L

    • Blaming the guns makes about as much sense as blaming the car over the drunk driver. Years ago the USSR said one day they would take over this country with out ever having to fire a shot and with the democrats help they just may do it. All i see out of the democrats now is treason.

      • Patrick, please don’t make the mistake of confusing the present Russia with the USSR. Putin is in no way like Stalin, Kruschev, or Gorbachev. They were despots , whereas Putin is a statesman, and a defender of western civilization. We have folks in our government who wish to keep Russia as an enemy – for reasons not easily explained without earning me an epithet or two – for economic reasons (too). Both Democrats AND RINO Republicans are on that bandwagon – the elimination of private gun ownership (step by step) is just another tool in their inventory. The brainwashing is incessant. And by the way, our supreme law of the land states without any question that any law, reg, or rule about gun ownership, carrying, or storage (or what have you) is ILLEGAL (unconstitutional).

  2. Democrats republicans trump all hypocrits.
    Had a suv in baltimore run into school injuring liitle ones how come no outcry, news whinning, saying the Assault suv injured children?
    How come no massive walk out by idiot students all crying that assault suvs should be banned? How come its ok to kill or injure by vehicle and no one cares? How come 500000 abortions a year and no one cares? Only 5000 gun injuries and they bleed their assess out to the media
    How come facts show and prove fbi,sheriff, school, parents are the cause of this shooting and no one cares?

    If people dont pull their heads out of their asses they are soon to find out what it is like to be a P.O.W. and in camp.

  3. I fully agree with that assessment!! Liberals are evil and do NOT belong in the government anymore. They have made their millions!!

  4. Interesting questions– Do you lock your doors at night? Then why shouldn’t we have a WALL? A town in Georgia requires all residents of sound mind to have a gun and crime is nearly non- existent because I’d bet you wouldn’t go there to break into a home–RIGHT? When more than a few counties show more votes than residents why do Democrats poo poo voter fraud claims?

    • The only reason Democratic Socialist claim voter fraud is because even with there cheating they still lost. If you look back this county where the school shooting happen in Florida. The Democratic Socialist got caught throwing away voters ballets and they said this is how they have always have done it without a republican party member or anyone from the election commety to check and verify the ballets. 2016 they was caught and the county went republican in a very large land slide. Then you have this shooting and the sheriff is a Democratic Socialist in this same county.

  5. Amen to that
    They need to practice what they preach, at least others are looking for solutions.
    A gun is only a tool the person that carry’s it is the weapon. its his/her choice how to use the tool,
    the tool cant act alone. PERIOD.

  6. I had forgotten about them having complete control over the hole ball of wax for those two years and did nothing to try and place any kind of laws that might have helped the one thing that they could have done enforce laws in place.who would have thought??

  7. No such thing as an “Assault Rifle” or “Assault Pistol” or “Assault Weapon”. A baseball bat, a hammer, a piece of iron pipe, etc. could be an “assault weapon” it used to assault anyone. It’s the PERSON who is the danger, NOT the device.

    Want to stop “school shootings”? Put God and prayer back in the schools and allow the teachers who wish to get trained and carry concealed do so. Keep your idiotic politics out of allowing someone to defend themselves and/or others. “….shall not be infringed” means exactly that!

  8. If there is anything that’s directly responsible for the mass shootings, it’s not the NRA, it’s not our failures as a society, it’s politics playing games with our lives! We need to understand that there are those in politics that don’t give a damn about what happens to us, it’s all about how much money that they get in their pockets and how much power they have! Until, we remove those corrupt individuals from power, in our government, many innocent Americans will die. I, for one, think that we’ve had enough of the corruption, treason and sheer stupidity in our government! We are not sheep, to be led around by the nose, we are Americans and we are the proud and the brave! Let’s get back to the business of showing our enemies what we’re made of!

  9. I see some others are saying what I have been saying. I have been trained in the use of a firearm and have used one to hunt since I was ten. That was seventy years ago. No gun of mine has ever killed anyone. Yes, I have said this before. It bears repeating. But I see one post here that brings up another issue. Terrorists have begun using vehicles for weapons of mass destruction, in Europe and the US. So, let’s ban those terrible automobiles. Oops, no one wants to ride horses again. Oh well, so much for that idea. Let’s let people be killed by vehicles. We have been doing it since they were invented. All that takes is some beer or liquor or pills. Or a person bent on killing lots of people. Meanwhile we have a constitution that says we have a RIGHT to have firearms, for protection, and that against tyranny in government as well as burglars.

    • I feel the same way, Jerry, hunting since I was ten, 75 years ago have my CCW for over 60 years.
      NRA member for 69 years…my guns never killed anyone, they have to get to the point of origin mental disorder!!!

  10. The above comments are all true and valid. Unfortunately, the bleating sheep of our nation are just not smart enough to know they are being turned into useful idiots by evil people who will take their guns because they want them dead. Japan did not carry through with their plan to invade the United States during the second world war mainly because we are an armed nation which would inflict unbearable harm to their armies. The sheep never learned that an estimated 200 Million Plus unarmed subjects were slaughtered by their own governments during the 20th century. It isn’t taught in our government schools any more because they want us to believe this nation which teaches abandoning God and just laws in favor of “doing your own thing” really cares for them and their safety. Sure. Me, I believe in armed citizens.

  11. If we raise the age limit to 21, then our children don’t need to be in the military, able to vote, or work for any agency that requires them to have a firearm! I say send the politicians in to fight the wars and battles they create!

  12. I agree with what Jerry Branson says no one wants to stop the auto industary from builing car to kill more poeple than guns no one wants to change the laws about car being used YAnd I’lles I like the idea about going back to horses because maybe it wouild stop the gobel warming but I turly don’t think so The control needs to be put on poeple . Ive fought for my country and my rights with 20 yrs of service in the Navy in the 70’s thur the early 90’s And I’ll keep fighting to keep my guns Because when they try to take my guns aways from me there will be a fight. They will get my guns out of my cold dead hands And the crimals will still have guns to do what the want

  13. Why is it always the gun that kills and not the mentally deranged…the law-abiding gun owners of America are the ones who pay the penalty……that nut that killed 17 kids was allowed to purchase a gun because he had no criminal record but had a mental problem, I’m sorry to say the FBI and the local police did not do their job.
    More gun control is not the answer we have plenty of those on the books, how come some jerk pulls a bank holdup goes to court and the gun charge is thrown out by some liberal judge.
    I’m an old man now but at 18 I was good enough to fight for my country and now at 18 to 21 you won’t be able to purchase a firearm……….something wrong with the system.

  14. Sadly your premise at the beginning of this article is false, i.e. “No one wants these shootings to ever happen again” is false. The anti-gun lobby is for anything that undermines the second Amendment and the more these horrible events occur the better they like it. Here’s something to ponder, those Americans who hold a concealed carry permit murder fewer people that Law Enforcement Officers. At issue is do American care about their civil liberties and therefore care about meaningful solutions or do they wish to be sheep. In the end we will choose whether or not to be a free people.

  15. I think we can all agree that the biggest problems we have is lack of parenting and the brainwashing of our kids through the school systems! If you can fight for our country at age 18 and drive a car at 16, you should be able to buy a gun at 18 everywhere! In my state as in many others that is never mentioned is CELL PHONES that is now the #1 killer on the highways, and has now surpassed DUI’s and GUN related deaths !! Where’s the cell phone BAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Everyone, and I mean everyone knows that they are perfectly able to talk on the phone and drive at the same time. Until………..they have THE wreck!

  17. Let’s get too the “TRUTH”, what causes situations that become “VIOLENT”?, could it be because “WE AS A NATION”!, have taken “DISCIPLINE & RESPONSIBILITY “, away from OUR society !. Which CAUSES, “CONFUSION & CHAOS”, within society. God Bless America, down with “LIBERLISM”.


  19. The oligarch’s have betrayed their oath to the American public, it does not matter if they are Republican or Democrat, or any other party. They took an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States of America, not a reinterpretation of. The old worn out cry, is that these documents were written when the technology of firearms was the musket, this is a moot point and has no basis or foundation.
    Our Four fathers who constructed these documents had more intelligence in the tip of their little fingers than the entirety of the Republican/Democratic parties combined.
    Once the unraveling begins, it is hard to stop. 1.) Bump Stocks, etc., etc. ……………. Until there are no components to construct firearms of any sort not even a musket. Everyone involved in these knee jerk responses should be voted out in the next election cycle. The oligarch’s have LIED again and do not deserve the positions that they have been elected to.
    Any teacher willing to participate in firearms training should exercise their Second Amendment Rights, and should not be impeded by these self-indulgent politicians, that are protecting no one with their poor decision’s.
    Political Oligarch’s=Do What I Say, Not What I Do. ………………………………….

  20. Great comments all! But this is not enough! Vitriol is going to get us nowhere. We all need to calm down and then collectively get to work. Take your thoughts and comments here and carefully craft them for a letter to your local newspaper. Leave out the words and comments that are going to incite emotions and not thoughtful reflection. Have your wife (for most of us) and/or close compatriot review and edit it for content and clarity. Remember that “A word well spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.” The spoken (and written) word is our most powerful weapon. It’s the enemies also but they have only raw emotion to work with and at the end of the day it’s the truth and logic that will prevail. Don’t ever discourage compadres, the battle may heat up but we hold the high ground. This is the greatest nation that has ever existed in the history of man, especially for individual freedom and expression and “the pursuit of happiness.” It is absolutely worth fighting for no matter what the cost. Lets do it with words and votes so we never have to “go to guns.” Blessings! NRA Patron Life Member.
