After the tragic shooting in Texas, in which a 17-year-old teen broke multiple gun laws, stole his father's guns, and murdered innocent children and adults, gun grabbers jumped at the opportunity to exploit the tragedy to push for legislation that would disarm law-abiding citizens and do nothing to curb violence. In yet another dramatic monologue, Jimmy Kimmel shamelessly and falsely claimed that this sort of violence doesn't happen in places where there are "real, sensible gun laws."
"Once again our leaders are sending their thoughts and prayers," Kimmel said of Friday's shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas that claimed the lives of eight students and two teachers. "President Trump said that he is with the people of Santa Fe in this tragic moment and that he will be with them forever, except when it's time to do something and then he will not be with them, and neither will any of the congresspeople or governors that won't ever do anything because they're fearful it will hurt them politically. They know the truth, they know this has gone too far."
Kimmel called lawmakers "too cowardly" to enact gun control because "they care more about the support of the [National Rifle Association] than they do about children."
Missing the point—and apparently lots of facts—Kimmel attempted to assert that gun control could've stopped this tragedy in Texas. However, unlike the other high-profile shootings, the shooter in Texas used guns that are not even the target of most gun grabbers.
"So they sit there with their hands in their pockets, pockets that are full of gun money, and they do nothing. They just wait for the outrage to pass because it didn't happen to their children," said Kimmel. "The least you can do is register to vote, right now. Make sure we vote for politicians who will do something."
