Over the weekend, a mass shooter opened fire in a shopping center in Buffalo, NY. The man was allegedly a racist, targeting a neighbor with a high population of black people. Immediately the media jumped on the story. Joe Biden himself dropped everything and went to the city. There, he offered no comfort or help. Instead, he used it to push politics.
Not that long ago, another maniac killed six people, including a child, in Waukesha. The man drove a truck into a Christmas parade, at the end of last year. Biden made little mention of this event. He never visited the city, nor offered help or a plan.
The reason? That slaying, done by a black man, different fit the left’s narrative. It did not involve a firearm and it would have painted a minority—and a criminal—in a bad light.
Now, Biden is jumping all over this recent crime—so he can push a false narrative about “assault weapons.”
President Joe Biden spoke in Buffalo Tuesday and pushed for an “assault weapons” ban in the wake of Saturday’s shooting, which killed ten people.
Biden said, “We can keep assault weapons off our streets. We’ve done it before. I did it when we passed the crime bill last time. And violence went down. Shooting went down.” […]
The NIJ report continued, “The ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”

Isn’t it odd how sudden Biden is concerned over the death of civilians? It seems he only bothers to get out of bed when he and his party can use it to push their agenda. Biden’s tired “solution” to crimes like this is to ban “assault weapons.”
Even though the facts don’t pan out. The previous ban did not affect gun violence, not on a level that could even be measured.
On top of that, people should be asking how gun owners would have altered the events of last weekend. Would this man had opened fire on these people, if he knew someone would be shooting back?
We all know New York is a blue state with strict gun control laws. Yet this man, a criminal, was able to get his hands on a gun. The only people “gun free” were the ones in his crosshairs.
Not that Biden cares all that much about that. This horrible crime is too valuable not to make it about race and gun control.
A man who doesn’t care one bit about Americans (given his economic policies) cares a lot about exploiting minorities—keeping them weak and helpless.
