There’s something especially nauseating about Hillary Clinton chiming in after a deadly tragedy. Maybe it’s the fact that she has presided over several deadly tragedies herself.
In any event, she saw an opportunity to score some cheap political points after this morning’s deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, and naturally, she took it:
Every day that we fail to act on gun violence, we are failing our children. This should be a day for soul searching across America – and that soul searching should be matched with legislating to begin dealing with this national shame.

The irony of someone like Hillary Clinton calling on other people to do “soul searching” is not lost on us. Nor is the irony of someone with a heart of stone making an emotional appeal.
Kyle Kashuv, for one, isn’t buying what Hillary’s selling. So, he’s asking her to put her money where her big mouth is for change:
Sec. Clinton, please show a place where guns were banned and homicides and murders went down. I'll wait. Thanks! https://t.co/LfdMi6HL9w

Hope you brought a book, Kyle.
Where was this tweet from Sec Clinton on Wednesday after we found out about the shooting at Dixon, IL HS?

Funny … there wasn’t one.
You might as well talk to the broom in your garage before wasting your time trying to reason with Hillary Clinton…

It’s true. As Ben Shapiro says, facts don’t care about your feelings. And well, Hillary Clinton’s feelings don’t care about your facts.
The gun used today (a sawed off shotgun) has been illegal since before you were born. https://t.co/LVEaFx9Ihx

Shooter was 17. Minimum age requirement to buy guns in Texas: 18. https://t.co/zQ76zcPnwU
