Somehow one liberal has managed to take the attention of Wednesday morning’s shooting by Bernie lover James T. Hodgkinson of republican members of congress and diverted it into a gun-control issue.
Forget the fact that Hodgkinson comes from an extremely liberal background and published on Facebook ‘It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.’
No, that’s not the issue.
The REAL issue here is gun-control.
Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) responded to the news of the targeted attack by stating the incident proves we have ‘too many guns on the street.’
McAuliffe saying: “There are too many guns on the street…we worry about this every day for all of our citizens.”
BuzzFeed DC editor Sarah Mimms tweeted:
VA Gov. McAuliffe: "We lose 93… people per day due to gun violence," mentions background checks, gun show loophole.

The “93 people” a day claim is a talking point shared by gun control proponents throughout the U.S. Everytown for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action, Hillary Clinton, and similar groups and individuals have been making for years.
They repeatedly state more than 90 people are killed by “gun violence” in America every day.
But in reality, the number of people killed annually by homicidal firearm use is about a third of that figure.
Individuals like McAuliffe swell the number of deaths via “gun violence” by adding firearm-related suicides to homicides, more than doubling the number of people who are actually murdered with a firearm.
Interestingly enough, Mimms reported that McAuliffe first said “93 million people [are killed] per day,” but he corrected that statement.
Let’s focus on the real issue here.
Liberal hate against Trump and the Republicans has escalated to a point where someone has actually fired shots.
The riots and protests were one thing; although very violent and destructive of property.
It is another thing for someone to go out and shoot at ‘Trump & Co.’
This James twit spewed so much hate speech on his FB page against conservatives, it is clear he was strongly influenced by the rhetoric from the MSM and liberal leaders.
Answering Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch request for ‘more blood on the streets‘, Hodgkinson gave it to her.
Violence like this needs to stop!
But unfortunately this may just be the beginning.
