Joe Biden had the opportunity to be the unifier he claimed he was when he ran when he made his remarks about the Uvalde mass shooting on Tuesday night. He started well, lowering the flag to half-mast before his remarks and expressing sympathy for the pain of the parents and families of the victims. But then, Biden turned from respect and sorrow to politics, pushing for gun control legislation without identifying what law could have stopped the shooting that occurred on Tuesday.

“As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?!” Biden said. “When in God’s name will we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?” The gun lobby has nothing to do with someone evil or mentally ill, willing to break all the gun laws and other laws that were already in place that this young man broke. Biden then falsely claimed such shootings had gone down after the assault weapons ban that he helped to pass in the 90s.

Biden even went on to make a wild comment about deer wearing kevlar.

Tucker Carlson said that he would give Biden credit if in his remarks he acted as a unifier, but he predicted that he would not. Unfortunately, it wasn’t that hard a prediction.

From Newsbusters:

The President of the United States, frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the memory of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party. Dividing the country in a moment of deep pain rather than uniting, his voice rising, amplified only as he repeats the talking points he repeated for over 35 years in the United States Senate, partisan politics being the only thing that animates him.

What Biden should have done, even just for a day, is think about the parents and the families of the victims. That’s where the focus should be, instead of on trying to yet again push for his political agenda. Just take a moment out to truly care about the people who have just gone from us. But he couldn’t do it. Instead, he opted to focus on the gun, as though the gun is evil or the people who believe in gun rights are evil, takes the focus off dealing with the real evil or the mental illness that exists in so many of these cases.

That’s the problem at this point. Democrats like Biden don’t want to look at solutions that might actually do something about addressing such situations such as making the schools more secure with things like single-point entry at schools as Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the Parkland shooting, advocates.

Then you might also want to try to enforce the laws that already exist and follow up on the warning signs that always seem to be there in such cases. It’s easy to shout “do something.” It’s harder to try to deal with difficult issues in a way that will truly have a result.

But Democrats have instead concentrated on things like “defund the police” which has made things harder. We’ve also seen progressive prosecutors not holding criminals to account. We see a lack of consequence for a lot of criminal actions now. Even in the case of Hunter Biden, gun laws weren’t enforced when it came to him allegedly not truthfully responding about his past drug use in filling out an application for a gun.

What we should be looking to stop is criminal action, not trying to once again further demonize guns, and once again not truly addressing the issues.
