Townhall -- On Monday night, the colleagues of Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) let them know what they thought of their gun control bills. All four of the anti-gun bills, rushed into a vote after last weekend's terror attack in Orlando, failed.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest argued on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that the Republican rejection of the gun control legislation was shameful.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Tuesday called the U.S. Senate’s voting down gun-related measures Monday a “shameful display of cowardice” and lamented the lack of Republicans with the “courage” to stand up to the National Rifle Association.It's pretty audacious of Earnest to call out the Senate after the Obama administration knowingly redacted the Orlando 911 transcript to omit any mention of ISIS. Compound that decision with President Obama's failure to boldly define the enemy as radical Islamic terrorism, and you have a stunning (and more accurate) definition of cowardice.
Blog Author's Comments -- This had nothing to do with the NRA. Liberals need their boogeyman to hold up as the one responsible for standing in the way of their acid like agenda. The NRA represents an individual freedom, that’s all. If not for them the Second Amendment would already be gone under this administration. The progressives know this and use them as the center of their argument for all things wrong in this country. How ironic is it for anyone connected to the White House or the Democratic Party to call anyone else a "coward?"
Obama and his party always call for more gun control whenever some crazy goes on a shooting rampage, yet he is allowing the illegals to pour into our country at a record pace. Obama does not like our country which is why he is doing as much damage as he can. This is why we need Donald Trump as the next president. He at least seems as if he wants to address the real problems and what he is saying is what many people want to hear from someone running for the office of president.
