White House dodges gun control questions after Las Vegas shooting

White House dodges gun control questions after Las Vegas shooting

After the White House news briefing, Kelly began by addressing Huckabee Sanders, ending by mentioning IN and Wisconsin.

As she continued to deflect, one reporter asked why the Trump administration is not reacting in the same way it did in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting, where 49 people were killed as a gunman opened fire in a popular club.

This past weekend Saturday Night Live had their season premiere and just like previous year they spend a good amount of time, in fact they actually opened the show attacking the Trump Administration.

Yet throughout the exact same media briefing, Sanders weighed in on the exact "policy discussion" that she said the White House would not discuss on "a day of mourning". Let's take a look.

Sanders looked to explain the split: "There is a difference between being a candidate and being the President". You might as well take away apple pie, Sunday afternoon football (I mean the good kind of football, back before those whiners started kneeling during the national anthem) and the right to skin a deer on the side of the interstate. You're a straight shooter, that's why you've outlasted Sean Spicer, Scaramucci, Bannon, Priebus, Gorka, Flynn, Yates and Tom Price.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned that the GOP-backed silencer bill could have deadly consequences.

In Connecticut, officials who have been fighting for stricter gun control laws in the years since the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School are calling for action on gun control following the shooting. So, there's no shortage of people to make fun of technically but it is ironic considering the fact that we've seen some really awful people go.

NRA open to regulation of bump stocks
That may not matter to gun owners who just want the thrill of shooting with one , or for those bent on destruction. That would mark a notable reversal for a party that has long refused to consider new gun restrictions.

If legislators make it harder to buy guns, people will just buy guns illegally.

Also, not featured in that particular clip, but in the whole segment, Jeff Sessions made and appearance. I'm not sure that is specific to that. Again, Saturday Night Live knows exactly what they're doing.

'Horrified and heartbroken by the very bad tragedy in #LasVegas last night.

Yet hours later, Trump claimed credit for sending in the agents from the ATF. That is exactly how the American public sees her.

Standing at the lectern, Sanders repeatedly stated today isn't the time to talk about policy solutions, especially when all of the facts surrounding the situation are far from fully known. Well she's not. Saturday Night Live understands that so they pounce on it.

The anti-gun nut cakes in the media and politics have to be straightened out, and the issuance of the talking points is a step in the right direction.

Take that freedom away, and the US suddenly devolves into Japan, or Australia, or some other quasi-socialist country where people aren't gunned down in movie theatres, high schools, on live TV, in nightclubs and in kindergarten classrooms.
