WATCH: Jacksonville Sheriff Says Guns Don't Cause Shootings, Wicked People Do

As always happens after a mass shooting (well, as long as the perpetrator, victims, motive, and locale meet certain qualifications), leftists quickly blamed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the deaths of two people in a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida. DeSantis was blamed for two reasons, this time. By the leftist reasoning, his anti-woke agenda somehow caused the shooter's blatant racism, and the constitutional carry bill passed by the Florida legislature and signed by DeSantis enabled the shooter to carry out the massacre.


Of course, neither of those things caused the shooting. A mentally unstable man with hate in his heart caused the shooting. And then, thankfully for us, he eliminated himself from the world.

Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters, who would get a lot of love and adoration from the left if he went along with their narrative (and who, frankly is expected to by virtue of his skin color), brushed that narrative aside in a press conference about the shooting. 

Waters said:

The story is always about guns. People are bad. This guy's a bad guy. If I could take my gun off right now and I lay it on this counter, nothing will happen. It'll sit there. But as soon as a wicked person grabs ahold of that handgun and starts shooting people with it, there's the problem. The problem is the individual.

Agitator Brian Krassenstein tweeted the video and actually said he agreed with the Sheriff but said that's why we need laws to ensure that people who shouldn't have guns don't have access to them. Well, we do have those laws, and especially in areas like Los Angeles, where the local District Attorney wants to "reimagine justice," those laws aren't enforced. So let's start by fully enforcing laws pertaining to enhancements when a crime is committed with a gun, revoking pre-trial release or probation for criminals who re-offend and have a gun, and then we can talk.
