The nation remains in shock following the slaughter of at least 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas by an 18-year-old who allegedly went on the rampage after shooting his grandmother. Authorities say he posted disturbing images online before the shooting and apparently messaged a woman about his plans before he carried out the deadly attack.
In an address to the nation Tuesday night from the White House, Biden blamed firearm manufacturers and their supporters for blocking legislation in Washington.
"When in God's name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby," he asked.
Democrats have also upped their push for H.R. 8, a gun control bill that Fox News says would have done little, if anything, to prevent the tragedy.
On Wednesday, Whoopi Goldberg blamed Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) "because he signed 22 bills this year making it easier for mass shooters to buy, carry, and own guns in his state" and suggested that the state's gun laws mirror the abortion laws, "deputizing citizens to sue anyone involved in gun violence" and enabling them to sue and report on neighbors who own "too big an arsenal."
Mike Hammond, legislative council to Gun Owners of America, sees through their appeals.
"First of all, Joe Biden views dead children as good politics," Hammond submits. "I think that's the beginning and end of his interest in these tragedies. And I predict there will be more killings of this nature, and the killings will be the direct result of Joe Biden and the media's efforts to politicize it."
Hammond points out that Biden and his ilk despise the Second Amendment and want to get rid of it.
"Ultimately their goal is elimination of civilian possession of fire arms in America," he asserts.
