Democrats cannot help themselves.
They celebrate mass shootings as their best opportunity to grab guns.
And Barack Obama made the one blunder that could cost the Democrats everything in 2020.
Investigations into the horrific events in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas are not finished yet.
But that hasn’t stopped Democrats from pushing a host of gun grabs that would not have prevented these terrible acts of madness.
Barack Obama got in the game when he tweeted out his support for taking Americans’ guns away even though he admitted he did not have all the facts.
Barack Obama used a tweet Monday to call for more gun control following the heinous attacks in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.
The former president admitted that was writing on the shootings before all the details were in, yet he voiced his support for more gun gun control.
Obama did not mention any specific gun control he believes ought to be pursued, and he noted more gun laws cannot guarantee an end to attacks like the ones in El Paso and Dayton. But he suggested more gun laws can “can stop some killings” and “save some families from heartbreak.”
He added, “Until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening.”
If Democrats follow Obama’s advice, they are walking into a political buzz saw.
In 2013, Obama tried to ram a national gun registration database through Congress.
Not only did the effort fail, but voters swept Democrats out of power in the Senate as Republicans gained nine Senate seats in backlash to Obama’s attempt to grab guns.
Democrats believe the political winds are at their backs on this issue in 2020.
But they thought the same thing in 2013 coming off Obama’s re-election victory.
Will the party pay a similar price next year for supporting gun control?
