As mainstream media exploits certain shootings to push an anti-Second Amendment agenda, they totally ignore the gun homicides taking place in Democrat-run cities across the country.
While any senseless act of violence should be condemned, establishment outlets seem to purposely ignore large numbers of Americans dying while highlighting events that help promote their narrative.
As of now, the media and Democrat politicians are using two recent shootings to ram through an “assault weapons” ban.
Last week, a young man allegedly dealing with “sex addiction” shot and killed eight people in Atlanta.
Yesterday, a young man from Syria who may have been an ISIS sympathizer entered a Colorado grocery store before shooting and killing ten people.
Meanwhile, 15 people were shot, four killed, in Chicago on Monday alone.
From Friday through Sunday in Chicago, 20 people were shot, four fatally.
Shootings in Los Angeles are up 88% in the first two months of 2021, compared to last year.
Portland, Oregon has seen nearly double the amount of shootings this year compared to the first two months of 2020.
A couple of weeks ago, five children were shot in Baltimore in a six-day period.
NYC saw 20 residents shot in one weekend earlier in March, including a 17-year-old boy dying after being shot in the face and a Queens mother of two killed by a stray bullet.
These tragic incidents take place every weekend in major U.S. cities, but Democrat politicians and activists totally ignore them.
