Post-Waffle House Shooting, Democrats Call For More Gun Grabbing

Well, of course they do. This is what they do (often while being protected by people who are armed themselves)

(CNN) As police search for the gunman who killed four people at a Tennessee Waffle House, the mayor of Nashville is saying “enough is enough” and calling for stricter gun-control laws.

“I know that we all want to live in a safe environment that allows everyone to go to work or school and feel and be safe,” Democratic Mayor David Briley said during a news conference on Sunday. “We all want to live up to our greatest potential, and it’s my responsibility as the mayor of Nashville to try and make that happen. Clearly the victims of this shooting deserve our prayers and our thoughts, but they also deserve leaders who will step up and take action and do something to get these weapons off our streets.

“For a moment, let’s be honest about what happened,” Briley said. “Last night, innocent Nashvilleans were terrorized by a man with an AR-15. Let’s be honest. Some people see these weapons as having a purpose of terrorizing other people. It’s happening too much. Enough is enough.”

So, blame the gun, not the shooter. Of course. We get a tiny bit more on the mayor’s policy proposals at the Tennessean

“We need comprehensive gun reform to address mass shootings, domestic shootings, accidental shootings and homicides,” Briley said at news conference where Metro police, FBI and other law enforcement provided updates on the shooting and search for the suspect, 29-year-old Travis Reinking, who was still at-large Sunday evening.

“If we can all just come together for the greater good, we can take these weapons of war off the streets of our country,” Briley said. (snip)

“For a moment, let’s be honest about what happened,” Briley said. “Last night, innocent Nashvillians were terrorized by a man with an AR-15. Let’s be honest. Some people see these weapons as having a purpose of terrorizing other people. It’s happening too much. Enough is enough.”

Let’s all be honest, we’re terrorized by Democrats talking points about gun confiscation, erosion of the 1st and 2nd Amendments, calls for raising our taxes, calls for controlling our lives through ‘climate change’ policies and “universal health care”, and they are complicit in millions and millions of murders via their support of abortion on demand. The Democratic Party should be banned. Enough is enough.

And then we have the local congress critter

A U.S. congressman is calling for restricting access to some assault weapons in the wake of a shooting at a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee on Sunday that left four people dead. Rep. Jim Cooper issued a statement Sunday, calling for restricting “widespread civilian access to military-grade assault weapons.”

In other words, gun banning. They all forget that there was a failure of law and an idiot father

A sheriff in Illinois says Travis Reinking’s state firearms card was revoked last year by state police, but his guns were given to his father with the promise that they wouldn’t be shared with his son.

Sheriff Robert Huston in Tazewell County, Illinois, says his department has “no information” on how Reinking got the weapons again. Huston says Reinking’s father has a valid firearm ownership card, and his officers didn’t believe they had any authority to seize the weapons. He says the father agreed to “keep the weapons secure and out of the possession of Travis.”

Reinking was arrested by the Secret Service in July of 2017 in a restricted area near the White House, which is the reason his firearms authorization was revoked and the guns were seized. But, hey, tell us about how more and more gun laws work.

    Unlike mayors of Nashville we don’t all have taxpayer funded bodyguard/cop/lovers following us around.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Should the murderer’s father be charged with a crime? He transferred the firearms to a person who shouldn’t have had them.

    Or do you think the murderer should have been able to have his guns?

  3. Stosh says:

    restricting “widespread civilian access to military-grade assault weapons.”

    But, but, automatic rifles are already restricted!! Are they going after what’s considered WWII military-grade assault weapons. or WWI, or Civil War military-grade assault weapons?!?!?

    Their demands seem very confused…..

    Let’s be honest.

    She says, as she proceeds to be dishonest.

  5. You will all be happy to note that the very definition of what it means to be “military grade” is about to change. The US Army, thanks to constant research into the matter since 1776, is planning to field a rifle that is so high tech, it will never come to the civilian marketplace. Just like M1 tanks and F-16s have never found civilian owners. Unlike the change from M14 to M16 and M16 to M4, this new rifle will be a leap ahead technology. Totally incompatible with current weapons and ammo. Thus, EVERYTHING currently available will be by definition, “obsolete less-than military grade”. So, if we just wait a little longer, both sides get what they claim to want. Gun owners get to have AR15’s (and even full auto m-16’s and M-4s), and “gun grabbers” get to achieve their standard of “no military weapons in the hands of private citizens”. Win-Win. Will that be good enough?

    But I suspect this isn’t what the “Left” really wants. They really want total disarmament. And lying about their agenda is baked into the pie as an essential ingredient. Just like EVERY agenda topic the Left pushes.
