Typical Leftist Logic: Anti-Gunners’ Assumptions About Colorado Mass Shooter Were All Wrong

People on the political left make a lot of assumptions about a lot of issues. They make assumptions about what is a problem and about what causes those problems.

What’s odd about those assumptions, though, especially around the assumptions around guns, is how quickly those anti-gun leftists jump to their conclusions without any evidence.

One perfect example of this happened around the March 22, 2021 mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado. David Rutz writes,

Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece said Tuesday she assumed the suspected mass shooter in Colorado was a White man in part because he was taken into custody alive, leading to accusations she engaged in racial profiling.

Meena Harrris was forced to delete a tweet erroneously assuming the race of the suspected killer of 10 people in a Boulder grocery store, after it was revealed he was of Syrian descent.

“The Atlanta shooting was not even a week ago. Violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country,” Meena Harris tweeted on Monday.

Now, lest you think that the niece of the current rabidly anti-gun Vice President of the United States was the only one to jump to this conclusion, Rutz continues:

Deadspin editor Julie DiCaro wrote she was “extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not,” to which USA Today race and inclusion editor Hemal Jhaveri wrote, “it’s always an angry white man. always.”

Always? Except when it isn’t. Because the shooter in this mass shooting was not a white man.

And to further shred the anti-gun narrative about mass shooters, gun control efforts didn’t prevent this shooter from getting their hands on a gun. Patty Nieberg and James Anderson write,

The suspect in the Colorado supermarket shootings bought a firearm at a local gun store after passing a background check[…].

Yes, that shooter went through all of the legal stuff to get his hands on a firearm. It sure seems that gun control failed in that case, doesn’t it?

But we probably shouldn’t be surprised at either of these situations. Violence isn’t unique to a specific ethnic group. Gun violence, as a specific kind of violence, is no exception. And gun control doesn’t work. This tragic situation in Colorado just proves that leftist assumptions about gun control and mass shootings are wrong, but those assumptions are why we still need to get the truth out there to those folks.

    • POPS – just look at what is happening in merry olde formerly great Britain. The ever increasing ‘gun violence(tm)’ there resulted in a drastic increase in ‘knife violence’ and that resulted in severe restrictions on all knives and cutting implements such as scissors. IIRC ya can’t even take a butter knife out of the kitchen. Guess where the hoplophobes are pushing us.
      BTW – the brits don’t even to bother denying that their criminals won’t follow the draconian gun/knife laws………………

  1. The Mudscum get a FREE PASS. They are allowed to commit as many crimes as they want and nothing is done about it. As one had said ‘Someone did Something”. All of them should be rounded up and put on a ship back to where they came from with one stipulation: the ship sinks when it reaches a certain depth in the ocean.

    • Not sure why you both find his comment so offensive, he’s just stating his frustration because you have these people who happen to be foreigners or people who hate Americans, and they get easy access to firearms (due to government’s benevolence) and are allowed to unleash carnage on the American people, and no one gets held accountable for such carelessness, not even the alphabet agencies, involved or responsible, and it didn’t sound like he was going after Syrians or people descended from them who don’t commit crimes or are felons with a rap sheet. Free speech after all, but it dies if we can’t let people say what they want, nobody wins. Those are just his thoughts it’s not like he’s committing a crime or anything…People just need to chill for a sec.

  2. It must always be remembered in evaluating any Leftist assertion. If the Leftist mouth is open, not gorged with food, and constructing syllables, it is always intentionally lying to fit whatever narrative the Leftist wishes was the truth but is not.

    As usual, it has to be the white guy. Tell that to the black people of Africa. IKIZA- BURUNDI, AFRICA, 1972, 30000 murdered by HUTU. BAMBUTI GENOCIDE. ZAIRE, 1996-1997, 20000 HUTU murdered. BAMBUTI GENOCIDE,1998-1991,20000 murdered. BAMBUTI GENOCIDE, 2002-2003, NORTH KIVU, CONGO, 70000, 40% PYGMY population murdered. These are the number of Black African’s murdered, not by white’s, but by Black tribesmen, that comes to over 1.5 million murdered by their own people in the 20th century alone. If you go back in history, the number much worse. From the early 8th century to and through the 19th century, the number is close to 10 million. Remember CHAKA ZULU? How many of his own tribe did he murder, or impale?

  4. It sounds like the editor doesn’t know that most Syrians are of the Arab ethnic group which is Semitic and thus CAUCASIAN. The biggest sub group is Kurds with the 2nd being Turkmen.

    So TECHNICALLY, the shooter was a WHITE man.

  5. The Leftist always say that that its the white people are the racist yet its them that always say that it was a white person that did it , yet if it turns out to be some other race the story is dropped like a hot potato …
    Like all the black on black and other minority killings that go on in their democrat controlled city’s and most of them are done with ILLEGAL guns … Still they say nothing about them …
