Jimmy Kimmel broke down crying on his show as he spoke about the shooting in Las Vegas that killed 59 people.
He said, “It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up. It’s too much to even process”
I understand. I teared up too. I was angry at the psycho who did this and sad for the victims and their families. However, unlike Kimmel, I was not blaming the NRA or President Trump for the actions of a psycho man, who was a registered Democrat by the way.
He spoke about gun control and placed blame on everyone except the crazed man who murdered people.
He said, “I don’t know why our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen,” Kimmel added, “Or maybe a better question is why do we continue to let them allow it to happen.”
Kimmel also criticized the White House’s response to the shooting. In a press briefing Monday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it was “not the time” for political debate about gun control.
“We have 59 innocent people dead. It wasn’t their time either,” Kimmel said. “I think now is the time for political debate.”
He singled out GOP lawmakers like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who he said have voted in line with or accepted money from the National Rifle Association and said Monday they were sending “thoughts and prayers” to Las Vegas victims.
“They should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country,” he said. “With all due respect, your thoughts and your prayers are insufficient.”
They do to allow the “gun lobby” to run America. The 2nd amendment is written into our constitution and allows American citizens to protect themselves. I was with him until he began to cry about gun control and so snidely added that our forefathers must have wanted us to have AK’s.
Guess what? They guy’s father was on the FBI list and was a bank robber. Looks like the criminal apple doesn’t fall far from the criminal tree.
It made me sick to watch this, and to see all the other people who are taking this sad situation and attempting to turn it on the entire gun community, rather than blaming the deranged person who carried out such a horrible act.
