Sunday following the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 Illinois Democrat Sen. “Little” Dick Durbin and Illinois Democrat congresswoman Cheri Bustos issued statements blaming guns for the massacre that has left 49 people dead(gunman makes 50) and 53 more wounded.
Here is Sen. Durbin’s statement:
This morning’s mass shooting was the worst in American history. Fifty people were massacred and dozens more injured when a heavily armed man opened fire on innocent people. My thoughts and deepest condolences are with the victims and their loved ones, and I stand in solidarity with the LGBT community in Orlando and across America. These mass shootings follow an increasingly tragic script: the public is heartbroken and outraged, first responders and law enforcement do their grim duty, and Congress proposes a slew of policy proposals and argues over whether any of them could have prevented the last tragedy. But when the debates end and nothing has changed, Congress makes itself complicit in the next killing. We have the power to act, and we must. The bottom line is that we allow dangerous people to buy guns in America and that has got to change. In the coming days, Congress must take a stand against hate, terrorism, and this horrific gun violence.
Congresswoman Bustos, who owes her seat in Congress to being close personal friends with Durbin(and Michael Madigan drawing district maps), said in her statement:
My heart breaks for all of the victims in Orlando and their families, but that isn’t enough. We have got to do more to protect our families from senseless tragedies, whether it’s mass shootings like this or the everyday gun violence that plagues too many of our streets
She went on to say on Twitter that “We have to do more”.
My heart breaks for all of the victims in #Orlando, but that isn’t enough. We must do more to protect our families from senseless tragedies

More about what?
This was an act of Islamic terrorism, committed by a devout Muslim whose family is from Afghanistan. While the subhuman cockroach mass murderer was an American citizen he never assimilated into our culture. Multiculturalism, diversity training, tolerance, never worked on this Jihadi who was sympathetic towards and inspired by ISIS, to which he pledged allegiance to DURING his rampage.
Assault weapons bans, more background checks, more gun free zones, won’t stop Islamic terrorist from committing acts of war or from hitting soft targets like crowded night clubs. Remember these Islamo-Nazis have used airplanes and box cutters to kill thousands, they use chlorine gas in Syria and Iraq, the Palestinian terrorists will use the bumpers of their cars and knives to kill, the terrorists decapitated a soldier in London with a machete.
Restricting peoples 2nd amendment right isn’t the answer to Islamic Jihad and fundamentalism, killing the Islamo-Nazis before they can commit their acts of savagery is.
