Liberals in the media continue to attack Republicans in the aftermath of the Vegas shooting. Rather than mourning with the victims and their families, defenders of gun control have used the tragedy as an opportunity to push forward stricter guns laws, most of which would not have actually prevented the tragedy from occurring in the first place.
In the midst of the liberal push for further gun control, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel continued to attack gun rights activists on Tuesday night.
“I want to send special good wishes to those watching from Las Vegas. You know what happened on Sunday night. I’m not going to get deep into it again tonight, I said what I had to say last night,” Kimmel said.
“But I do want to say something to those nuts who spent most of the day on television and online attacking those of us who think we need to do something about the fact that 59 innocent people were killed,” he continued.
“They say it’s inappropriate to be talking about it because it’s too soon,” Kimmel said. “Well, maybe it is too soon for you because deep down inside you know — in your heart you know you bear some responsibility for the fact that almost anyone can get any weapon they want, and now you want to cover yourself until the storm of outrage passes and you can go back to your dirty business as usual.”
On Sunday night, more than 50 people were killed in the worst mass shooting in modern American history when a lone gunman opened fire during a country music festival from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel. More than 500 innocent people were injured.
The suspect was soon identified by law enforcement as Stephen Paddock, 64, according to NBC News.
Liberals began pushing for further gun control only hours after the attack took place. Perhaps most notably was Hillary Clinton, who received a notable amount of backlash for her comments.
In Clinton's first comment, she seemed sad about the tragedy. However, she quickly followed that comment up with two more, both of which politicized the shooting less than 24 hours after it had occurred.
“The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get," she said, before adding, “Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”
According to Breitbart News, the greater criticism for Kimmel rests on the nature of his Monday night comments. In particular, Breitbart reports that the comedian promoted several blatantly misleading claims about gun laws, certain types of firearms, and Second Amendment legislation pending before Congress.
After providing misleading information, the late-night comedian offered no apologies.
