White House spokesman Josh Earnest was asked several questions about gun control during his press briefing today. Breitbart summarizes his responses, which were more of the same: endless references to "common sense" reforms which are never specified. Earnest wants to keep firearms out of the hands of "criminals and others who shouldn't have them"; so do we all, but how?
To state the blindingly obvious, mass murder is, and always has been, illegal. All mass shooters violate any number of laws, including, by definition, laws relating to firearms. The burden is on anyone who proposes adding new laws to the many that already exist to show why they would be any more effective than the laws already in place.
It may be the case that Earnest is in earnest and not lying per se. But gun control is part of the overall Lefty platform of collapse. What non-gibbering idiot remains who believes this noise?
Should America survive the current Commie infestation and recover (which I think likely, as an affirmed optimist), such an exceptional recovery shall have been partially predicated upon rejecting just this sort of dedication to failure.
It's not as though people who're paying attention don't know precisely why #OccupyResoluteDesk is flogging this particular dead horse.
