(HorizonPost.com) – Former President Barack Obama wasted no time in turning the tragic murder of eight people in Atlanta into an opportunity to push the Liberal Agenda of the Democrats. To make his pitch for “common-sense gun control,” he intentionally twisted this event to make it about racial discrimination targeting Asians despite statements by law enforcement.
Even as we’ve battled the pandemic, we’ve continued to neglect the longer-lasting epidemic of gun violence in America. Although the shooter’s motive is not yet clear, the identity of the victims underscores an alarming rise in anti-Asian violence that must end.

As of March 18, roughly 48 hours after the shooting spree, police say they don’t believe the gunman was racially motivated, although they did also note this is still an ongoing investigation. Law enforcement indicated that the attack may have been rooted in sex addiction.
The Supreme Court of the United States in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, in a 5-4 decision, shot down the Liberal mantra that the Second Amendment applies only to military service. They ruled that being in a militia was not an operative requirement for owning firearms. The Second Amendment applies to all citizens and guarantees them the right to defend themselves. The Constitution provides a method to amend it, so perhaps Obama and activists should use that instead of trying to subvert it.
