RUSH: Now, for all of you Democrats who are back on your gun control high horse, I have one word for you: Colorado. You remember what happened in Colorado. Two Democrats thought to be in safe districts were recalled in Colorado over their efforts at renewed gun control on the innocent and the law-abiding.
The shooting in Washington is what it is, and everything about it is predictable. The reaction to this, everything about it is predictable. The facts are predictable. What we have here is a mentally disturbed individual on a military base where guns are banned. We have the usual outcry from the left, “Oh, my God, oh, my God, oh, my God, we need to get rid of the guns,” which is not the problem here. It is always the intent of a mentally disturbed person, I don’t care if it’s a school shooting or what have you, or a terrorist, it doesn’t matter, the law-abiding and sane do not engage in this kind of activity. And so getting rid of guns, it’s the same old thing, a tired and worn-out argument. We’ll deal with it today, of course, because we must because the onslaught of pressure once again is on the president and the Democrats.
They’re gonna take advantage of it, they’re gonna try, but it’s a losing proposition for them, just as Obamacare is a losing proposition for them. Just as pretty much everything Obama wants is a losing proposition, when expressed in terms of public support. The sad thing is that public opposition to Obama’s policies is not resulting in Obama’s policies being thwarted other than gun control and perhaps amnesty, we’ll have to wait and see on that.
