As you’ve probably heard several times from Democrats today, the terrorist attack in Manhattan yesterday isn’t to be politicized, unless of course it’s to politicize a perceived politicization from the other side, as former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon demonstrates:
Whenever someone brings up the Diversity Visa Lottery today, ask them how that ban on bump stocks is coming along.

So it’s official then:
green light, folks. Politicize like the wind! https://t.co/15SKeRJogP

That didn’t last long. Fallon’s comparison isn’t exactly apples-to-apples:
No bump stocks: the man could still have killed people. No visa: the man would not be here to kill people. HTH. https://t.co/COI0boa8Yv

Without bump stocks, Vegas still has the shooter & a bunch of guns.
Without visa, NYC has no assailant, thus no attack. https://t.co/2paiRjX2Qk

It doesn’t look like Fallon’s exactly sure what he’s saying…
People can easily alter a gun and make their own bumpstocks. Keeping people out is a lot easier and cheaper https://t.co/WI9fUN4US4

We don’t care about terrorists killing people, because you don’t care about guns. https://t.co/m2SZ8qIUDD

Merits aside, this is category error liberals continue to make. Restricting freedoms of Americans is different than access for non-citizens. https://t.co/meKSUnjunJ
