This dude’s way behind the curve. Supporters of the Second Amendment have already been blamed for Newtown. And pretty much every gun incident preceding it. If it’s not pro-Second Amendment types, then the old fallback of blaming the Tea Party is always there.
The 27th victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting might be the gun-control bill being pushed in Congress.
Less than four months after a gunman slaughtered 20 children and six educators at the school in Newtown, Conn., pro-life, pro-gun Republicans in Congress want to strangle in its crib the barely-teething bill that cries out for the common sense step of making background checks apply for all gun sales.
And so President Obama came to the University of Hartford, as debate on the bill is set to begin in Congress. He came to shout above the roar of 300 million American guns and the deafening rhetoric of the National Rifle Association. He came to say that the next round of bullets fired by a monster at innocents is on the spineless politicians — mostly Republicans, but several Democratic weasels, too — who are flush with blood-soaked NRA campaign cash and oppose any new gun restrictions.
