In the wake of the Texas church shooting, liberals are talking about gun control again. They are calling for stronger legislation, seemingly ignoring the fact that the Devin Kelley, the shooter, should not have been able to purchase a gun legally under current laws.
Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on NBC’s "Today" on Monday where he continued to spread his agenda. He stated that the hero who shot the Texas church gunman should not have had the weapon he used to stop the murder spree.
Biden's remark came as a response to a question from a young woman in the audience who asked him to justify the Democrat’s call for more gun control given that the shooter was stopped by a good guy with a gun.
"Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying," said Biden. "Assault weapons are . . . I wrote the last serious gun control law that was written and was law for 10 years, and it outlawed assault weapons and it outlawed weapons with magazines that had a whole lot of bullets and so you can kill a whole lot of people a lot more quickly."
He continued, “Number two, it’s just rational to say that certain people shouldn’t have guns. Now the fact that some people are legally able to acquire a gun and they turn out to be crazy after the fact, that’s life. There’s nothing you can do about that, but we can save a lot of lives. We’ve stopped tens of thousands of people from getting guns that shouldn’t have guns.”
Biden completely avoids the young woman’s question by spouting facts. He doesn’t address the fact that the shooting would have continued until the police arrived more than 10 minutes later.
This isn’t the first time the liberals have tried to minimize the role of the good guy with a gun. A panel on MSNBC’s Meet the Press Daily claimed that NRA instructor Stephen Willeford did not actually shoot at the Texas church shooter. did not stop his rampage.
“When I was watching President Trump today, and he was making his argument that [the shooter] was essentially stopped by someone with a gun, I kept thinking, ‘but he killed himself,’” said Yamiche Alcindor. “The shooter was not stopped, there was not a big gun fight … and I think there needs to be a fact check on how this got stopped in the first place.”
“The narrative here as you saw with Mike Huckabee and the president is a little bit off the rails,” Todd responded.
The Daily Wire calls both of these statements “deliberate lies.”
When Willeford heard the gunfire, he grabbed his AR-15 and ran out of his house barefoot to engage the shooter; he shot the gunman twice.
“I know I hit him,” Willeford said. “He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his window.”
Willeford and another civilian chased the suspect in a vehicle at 95 mph until he lost control and crashed into a ditch. He killed himself before the police could take him into custody.
Multiple law enforcement officials confirmed that Willeford saved lives with his heroic actions.
