control confiscation hysteria sweeps the left (and the Democrat party), we find them not really interested in solving the problem and protecting the kids. It seems the furthest thing from consideration:
Is CBS News seriously unaware that you have to pass a federal background check to buy a gun? Unlike cold medicine? I assume they do know better, and are just lying to promote their agenda.
So politics is at play, and the midterms are at play here even though schools shootings are not the new normal. They’d love gun confiscation of they could get it, but, the inability to speak from anything but emotion is a plan for voter turnout when a party has no platform. They are, then, being dishonest with us about their intent:
A big part of the problem is that gun-control advocates have a singular obsession with guns — especially, a particular style of gun — and very little concern for proper enforcement or warnings systems or cultural trends that have led to mass shootings or mental health risks or how we cover these shootings. This rejection of holistic solutions exemplifies their real intentions and makes Second Amendment advocates rightfully suspicious.
The media is playing along despite the fact that most deaths are not by firearms–it’s knives.
At the embarrassing (for CNN) townhall, Jake Tapper, and cast displayed and fanned what can only be called emotional irrationality. There was no discussion. It was a rally to shame the participants. In fact, what CNN did was sponsor and support a political rally. They were not after answers, or dialogue, or dispassionate discussion. they wanted ratings. Both Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch were there to be flogged, and accused, and slandered. Loesch, in fact, had to have an armed security detail escort her from the event. Tapper approved of all of this by his silences. It is such a disgrace, that calling CNN a news organization anymore is laughable, especially since there is an accusation that it was a scripted event. The accuser is entirely credible. CNN? Not so much.

In the defense, CNN claims they have never scripted an event.
In the end, the Democrats and the media may not find November will turn out the way they think. It is possible, though not guaranteed, the people may find all this a bit much and lacking in substance.
Doing the same old thing, and passing more stringent laws has never worked. Arming the schools just may.
It’s worked for Israel.
