All Crime Is Personal

Mitch McConnell is an assclown (says gov't can't prevent school shootings)

U.S. Senate Majority Assclown Mitch McConnell

This past Tuesday, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was addressing a group of community leaders in Danville, Kentucky. When the subject of school shootings came up McConnell said there was nothing the Federal Government could do to prevent future ones from happening.

“I don’t think at the federal level there’s much that we can do other than appropriate funds,” McConnell told a group of community leaders in Danville Tuesday.

“You would think, given how much it takes to get on an American plane or given how much it takes to get into courthouses, that this might be something that we could achieve, but I don’t think we could do that from Washington, I think it’s basically a local decision,” he said.

If that isn’t passing the buck I don’t know what is. President Truman is probably turning in his grave.

I don’t know if Senator McConnell is aware of this, but he’s a member of the legislative branch of the Federal Government. It’s kind of their job, as the name implies, to pass federal legislation. So, what kind of federal legislation could Congress pass to try to prevent future school shootings? How about offering federal assistance to people in need of mental healthcare? Or they could pass legislation regulating, or outlawing, the private sale of guns where background checks aren’t required. They could enact laws requiring the prosecution of ‘responsible’ gun-owning parents who allow their unsecured guns to be used in a school shooting. They could also raise the federal age limit of gun ownership to at least 21, although personally, I think 25 would be more apropos. The possibilities are endless.

What Senator McConnell obviously means is that the party he leads refuses to do anything about preventing school shootings because not only would it mean compromising with the opposing party, but it would also risk jeopardizing that sweet sweet gun lobby money.

Sometimes the measure of a man’s worth is standing up for what’s right rather than supporting what keeps you employed.

    I’m 100% pro gun and I even agree there are some steps you can take to even atleast lower the rates of the shootings. It’s gotten out of control
