Democrats Are Fundraising Off Of El Paso, Dayton Shootings...

Excerpt:

Democrats are blaming President Trump's rhetoric for influencing the El Paso shooter and the anti-immigrant manifesto he penned before Saturday's massacre. But they seem to have no issue trying to fundraise off of the tragedy, as well as Sunday morning's mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said she's "heartbroken" about the shootings, which left 31 people dead, then asked for money for Sens. Doug Jones (D-AL) and Tina Smith (D-MN) in their respective Senate campaigns.

Yesterday, we woke up to the second mass shooting in just as many days. I'm heartbroken for El Paso and Dayton, and to all the families who have just endured unimaginable loss.

We need commonsense gun reform now, before the next mass shooting, to stop the daily gun violence on our streets, and to make sure that our families and loved ones are safe.

But Mitch McConnell and Republicans in the Senate are blocking legislation that could help address this epidemic.

During the last election, we flipped the House. And in February, the Democratic-led House passed bipartisan legislation that would make a meaningful impact on this crisis.

But five months after passing the House, and more than six and a half years after Sandy Hook, that bill is still sitting on Mitch McConnell's desk. It's inexcusable.

It's clear Republicans don't have the courage to do something about this crisis. We can't wait for them to act because they won't. If we're going to address the gun violence epidemic in our country, we need to take back the Senate in 2020.

I'll fight my heart out to make sure Democrats win up and down the ballot in 2020 but if we're going to beat Republicans and the gun lobby, it's going to take a grassroots movement.

Will you chip in today to help Democrats flip the Senate? Your donation will be split among funds that will go to the eventual Democratic Senate nominees in 23 races and Senators Doug Jones and Tina Smith.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) asked supporters to split contributions between former Rep. Gabby Giffords's (D-AZ) PAC, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Giffords was injured in a mass shooting in Tucson in 2011.

And the DNC itself sent out a fundraising email, signed by Giffords with an urgent message that they "can't afford" to wait another day to pass gun control measures.

No mention of Chicago?

Any time someone uses the word "commonsense" or "comprehensive", what they mean is more government. Usually in the form of unaccountable bureaucrats. Trump is not responsible for either El Paso or Dayton. The charges of "white supremacy" are the f'ed up fantasies of leftists. If anyone needs to be banned from owning guns or anything sharper than a tennis ball, it's them.
