Democrats have become predictable in their efforts to capitalize politically off the tragedy of others, so it didn't surprise us when a few of them came out in support of new gun bans in America following the horrific terrorist attacks on two mosques in New Zealand.
Following that horrific attack and without batting an eye, the Kiwi government, led by Leftist Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern (who adorned herself in a hijab when visiting with Muslims following the attack), moved to immediately ban semi-automatic rifles of the kind used by shooter Brenton Tarrant, 28. There was no conversation with New Zealand citizens or the country's other semi-automatic gun owners, none of whom were guilty of shooting anyone that day or any other day. There was no effort to compromise. There was no outreach to the country's gun community. There was just this decree: 'We will ban these guns!' And poof, it was done.
That's just fine and dandy with America's Democrats including perennial semi-auto gun banner Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. Never one to miss an opportunity to grab more guns, Feinstein declared on Twitter, "In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge."
