It wasn’t long ago that you couldn’t turn a corner without seeing a Democrat saying something about “common-sense gun reform” or “gun safety” or whatever buzzword the media had taught the trained seals to say that week. Now, Democrats have gone suspiciously quiet on the issue.
It hasn’t been because shootings have stopped. According to AP News, a number of shootings have been reported on in just the last few hours as of this writing, one of them taking place at a school where officers shot an armed student.
Normally, when innocents are shot up, the news is all over it. Radio host and gun rights activist Dana Loesch once said that the media loves mass shootings, and she was proven right time and again. Not to say they love the idea of people being shot, but the moment a body hits the floor from a gunshot wound, the leftist media, politicians, and activists stand on top of it and use it a soapbox before it even has a chance to get cold.
