A much-needed moment of reasoned clarity from President Trump as the country continues to process two nearly back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend. While the far-left media predictably goes into “it’s all Trump’s fault” as they collectively rub their hands together in glee thinking to attack the president following the dual tragedies, President Trump gives a forceful yet empathetic response to the terrible loss of life.
Oh, and on a very related note, we should not forget that in Chicago, home to some of the most restrictive anti-gun laws in the nation, there were nearly 60 shootings over the weekend as well – largely in black communities. Why is it the media continues to ignore the plight of such urban violence that goes on day after day, week after week, year after year, in cities long controlled by life-taking socialist policies? President Trump is exactly right – until we deal with the mental health crisis in America, the loss of community and the degradation of the family dynamic, these kinds of tragedies will sadly continue. Yet more gun laws will not remedy a sickness that goes much deeper than any of us seem willing to confront—the very same kind of sickness that sees media figures happily attempting to politicize tragedy.
