According to the Democrats, every shooting is always the fault of the people who didn’t pull the trigger.
Over the weekend there was a shooting at a bar in Kansas City, and Kamala Harris rushed to Twitter to blame Mitch McConnell for it.

As a result of this, #MassacreMitch was trending on Twitter, because had Mitch McConnell capitulated and brought the House’s gun control bill to a vote, this shooting would not have happened… or something like that.
This is the same mentality that makes these people believe that if only we had not dropped out of the Paris Accords, Hurricane wound not have happened. There are people who fervently believe this, as scientifically unsound as that assertion may be.
What does Kansas City local news have to say about this (because the national news sucks)?
Kansas City, Kansas, police early Monday morning identified two suspects in a shooting at a KCK bar in which four people died and five others were injured.
KCKPD said Hugo Villanueva-Morales, 29, and Javier Alatorre, 23, have each been charged with four counts of first-degree murder.
According to records from the Kansas Department of Corrections, Villanueva-Morales was released from prison in March 2019. He was incarcerated for several years after three robbery convictions.
Villanueva-Morales and Alatorre are accused in the mass shooting at Tequila KC, which police said may have been motivated by an earlier dispute at the bar.
The news reported that there were previous violent altercations at the bar earlier in the night, however, at the time of that reporting it was unknown if those incidents had anything to do with the shooting.
Kansas City, Kansas, police records showed at least two incidents of violence near the bar in 2019. Around 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 2, 2019, officers responded near the bar on an aggravated assault – use of a deadly weapon call. Then, around 2 a.m. on April 5, 2019, officers responded on an aggravated battery – intentional great bodily harm or disfigurement call.
It was not known if any charges were filed in connection with the two previous incidents.
It appears that after the arrest of the first suspect, that yes, the shooting was in connection with the earlier assaults at the bar.
So I would like to know, exactly what gun laws allowed a man who was released from prison a few months ago after several felony convictions to buy between 8:30 PM and 1:30 AM and would the latest House gun bill eliminated those loopholes?
I can’t speak for all gun owners, but I don’t need a UBC to tell me not to sell a gun I have listed on Armslist at 10:00 at night to a guy with a prison tattoo on his face.
These facts don’t matter though, because the point isn’t to reduce gun crime, it’s to disarm and thereby punish gun owners who the Democrats assume is Trump’s base.
