Liberal gun grabbers never stop, and, all of a sudden, Amy Schumer is Concerned
(GMA) Comedian Amy Schumer is joining forces with her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, to push for new gun control legislation on Capitol Hill.
The “Trainwreck” star appeared with the New York senator this morning at a news conference with a sign saying “Enough Is Enough” by their side.
“Amy may have started out as a comedian but this subject is really serious,” the senator said, adding, “I have a lot of press conferences but I almost never get this many people.”
For Amy Schumer, the subject of gun violence and mass shootings became “extremely personal” last month, when John Russell Houser opened fire in a movie theater in Lafayette during a screening of her film “Trainwreck,” killing two people and injuring nine others.
Her only link was that this occurred during a screening of her movie, which was random. I wonder how she and Chuck would respond to legislation requiring government to check and see if any Muslim applicant has links to hardcore Islam?
She called the three-pronged plan Sen. Schumer is putting forward in Congress “sensible measures.”
The senator wants to compel states to share information about felons, spousal abusers and the adjudicated mentally ill with the federal government for the national background check system; to survey all 50 states on their standards for involuntary commitment for the mentally ill and put forward national best practices; and to get Congress to fully fund mental health and substance abuse programs.
“No one wants to live in a country where a felon, the mentally ill or other dangerous people can get their hands on a gun with such ease,” his star cousin said.
These are all generally White People problems. In the ghettos in primarily Democratic Party run cities, most of those guns are not legally purchased, and Blacks are shooting and killing other Blacks in huge numbers, even record numbers (see Baltimore). Why is there so little concern from Liberals over Blacks shooting Blacks? Most of the big news events surrounding shootings tend to occur where White People gather, and the shooters are either White or Islamists (though, the link to radical Islam is usually downplayed). The news, run mostly by White Liberals, tends to mostly ignore the huge gun crime problem in Black urban areas that Democrats run.
Why are White Liberals not concerned about Blacks shooting Blacks? Why don’t they have a plan that will reduce what is termed “Black in origin” crime?
Interestingly, Democrats have worked hard to make it harder for citizens to obtain handguns, which would protect them from felons, adjudicated mentally ill people, and spousal abusers.
