Is there no difference between "politicizing the shooting" and being inspired by a tragic event to propose a solution that involves more gun control laws? Are gun control advocates really just using this tragedy to "advance their agenda" ?And honestly, is it really just "their" agenda if they're proposing a policy that they believe would benefit everyone? That makes it sound like pushing for gun control is some sort of selfish endeavor. These are the sort of purely manipulative talking points that I can't stand being embraced by any large segment of society. It's an attempt to silence gun control advocates.
Also, I like the hastiness and insincerity of the first 3 or 4 sentences of this transcript. He's SO anxious to get that "let me respond as a human being with feelings" shit out of the damn way before he makes HIS political points.
