Oh gun control harpies, what would a would-be-tragedy be without you?
Rather than waiting for details on the Ohio State University incident, founder/mouthpiece for Moms Demand Action Shannon Watts pounced at the opportunity to on social media this morning after receiving a Buckeye Alert of an active shooter on campus:
Wait, can we pray to God now if it’s a suspected shooting? I thought we weren’t supposed to offer prayers in these situations, but I don’t know who’s updating the playbook, can we get a ruling on this?!
Apparently, Watts also remembered this lesson following the act of domestic terrorism in San Bernardino almost one year ago and put up a new tweet four minutes later:
Um, just who exactly is giving “dangerous people guns” in America? Also, I would love it if the collective “we” would trust students to defend themselves – that’s called campus carry. And if Watts doesn’t think students should be left defenseless, then I suggest she get behind it.
The Moms Demand mouthpiece chose instead to seize the opportunity to politicize the incident in order to advance her gun control agenda:
Upon learning the Ohio State was not, in fact, an active shooter situation, Watts then thanked God for the fact that the attack was not committed with a firearm. However, no word on whether or not she was/is thankful for the good guy with a gun who stopped the suspect.
But even the truth won’t stop Ms. Watts from shilling her brand of crisis:
Sad, but predictable.
Of course Watts isn’t the only gun control shill looking for attention today:
Deeply saddened by the senseless act of gun violence at Ohio State this morning. Praying for the injured and the entire Buckeye community

"Good guys with guns" don't stop bad guys bc they are afraid of becoming targets of the shooter or police or of killing innocents.

So many shootings every single day…but still half the US opposes gun control. Love & light to Ohio. Our country is so broken.
