Dem Sen. Blumenthal Outrageously Claims Republicans Are ‘Complicit In All These Shootings’
In the days since the mass shooting at a Boulder, Colorado grocery store, Democrats have been shamelessly politicizing the tragedy like it’s their jobs in the hopes of passing gun control measures.
In a CNN interview on Tuesday, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) took this a step further with a truly vile attack on Republicans, claiming that they are “complicit” in mass shootings because of their support of pro-gun legislation.
Blumenthal Sounds Off
“In Boulder, that shooter is a deeply disturbed man who became a mass killer because he had an assault weapon that can kill people with the efficiency and speed meant for the battlefield,” Blumenthal said.
“So guns make all these problems more fatally and deadly, especially for domestic violence victims who then can be killed, five times more likely to be killed in those situations,” he added. “That’s why we need to make sure we adopt these common-sense measures.”
“We should not be putting aside Republicans,” Blumenthal continued. “They bear responsibilities as well.”
Blumenthal Doubles Down
“That was the whole point of my exchange this morning with Senator Cruz because they’re the ones who are ducking that responsibility and become complicit in all these shootings,” he said. “It is not just Boulder, and it is 100 killings a day and not to mention the emotional traumas and injuries that result, the eight children that are lost every day of guns that are stored unsafely.”
“I think my Republican colleagues are going to be put on record. We’ll have a vote,” Blumenthal concluded. “We have a president who’s committed to this cause, both House of Congress and most importantly we have a popular political movement, a grassroots movement led by a new generation like the Parkland students and March for Our Lives.”

Biden Calls For Gun Control
This comes as President Joe Biden is using this shooting to call for a ban on “assault weapons.”
“I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take common-sense steps that will save the lives in the future and to urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act,” Biden said on Tuesday, according to USA Today.
He added that both he and his wife Jill Biden are “devastated” by the shooting, going on to say that he “just can’t imagine how the families are feeling – the victims whose futures were stolen from them.”
“As president, I’m going to use all the resources at my disposal to keep the American people safe,” Biden continued.
