Karine Jean-Pierre blames Republicans for Nashville school shooting as Dems pounce on tragedy to demand gun ban

School shootings are among the most tragic incidents in America when they happen but for Democrats, each mass murder represents another opportunity to wage war on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners and Monday was no exception as White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre took aim at Republicans after news broke of a horrific mass murder in Nashville.

As details of the carnage at the private Christian school where six people were gunned down by a disturbed female with multiple weapons were still developing, President Joe Biden’s top spox took to the podium during the daily press briefing and proceeded to blame the latest mass murder to rock the nation on Congressional conservatives for not falling in line behind Democrats to support the ban on assault weapons, a top priority of her boss who recently vowed to use executive action if necessary to crack down on the Second Amendment rights of Americans.


“While we don’t know yet all the details in this latest tragic shooting, we know that too often our schools and communities are being devastated by gun violence. Schools should be safe spaces for our kids to grow, and learn, and for our educators to teach,” she said as she touted “gun safety” actions taken by Biden in the aftermath of mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, N.Y. while calling for congressional action because “enough is enough.”

“How many more children have to be murdered before Republicans in Congress will step up and act to pass the assault weapons ban, to close loopholes in our background … in our background check system, or to require the safe storage of guns?” Jean Pierre asked. “We need to do something. Once again, the president calls on Congress to do something before another child is senselessly killed in a preventable act of gun violence. Again, we need to do something.”

What Jean Pierre didn’t bother to address is the national mental health crisis and the role of mental illness and drugs in contributing to mass shooters running amok and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) sought to set the White House diversity hire straight.

“How many more children have to murdered before Democrats will agree to protect children at schools the same way good guys with guns protect the President and others?” Greene wrote on Twitter. “Then our next discussion should be mental illness, drugs, and SSRI’s.”

The historic first black lesbian immigrant to hold the job of top White House spinmeister was far from the only Democrat to exploit the senseless slaughter in Tennessee to call for collective punishment in the form of draconian government action against gun owners.

“The school shooting in Nashville is heart-wrenching. No student, teacher or family should experience the fear and trauma of gun violence. Enough is enough. Congress needs to once again ban assault weapons and pass gun violence prevention legislation to keep our children safe,” demanded Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

“We call ourselves the land of the free–yet our kids & teachers are gunned down in schools and forced to live in fear of being killed while being educated. What kind of freedom is that?” Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom wrote. “This isn’t going to stop until we come together to pass basic gun safety laws in our nation.”

“Heartbroken and deeply troubled by another tragic school shooting in America. Praying for the children, families and entire Nashville community. Thankful for the decisive response by law enforcement who prevented an even greater tragedy,” said House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York. “Congress must act.

“The upside of assault weapons is just not worth the carnage,” tweeted Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut. “Maybe that proposition is debatable if we didn’t know whether a ban could work. But we do know. Mass shootings dropped significantly when the 1994 ban went into effect, and then spiked when the ban expired.”

“The right to be free from fear in the classroom and return home after school is greater than the right to unrestricted weaponry,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) tweeted.

From a purely political standpoint, nothing quite packs the punch as a school massacre for Democrats and their armies of anti-gun activists and they will look to strike while the iron is hot to further advance their anti-Second Amendment agenda. However, they had better move fast as there are reports that the alleged shooter may have been a transgender which, if true, could mean that the Nashville slaughter will be a blip that rapidly exits the media radar screen.
