Democrats launch inquisition into gun manufacturers for selling ‘weapons of war’

It isn’t a crime to buy and sell firearms, but it sure sounds like Democrats think it should be.

In the aftermath of the recent mass shooting in Texas, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee are launching an inquisition into gun manufacturers for selling so-called “weapons of war,” according to reports.

Dems launch inquisition

In highly charged language, committee chair and 76-year-old career politician Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York (D) accused gun manufacturers of doing something wrong by marketing “assault weapons” to civilians, thereby “reaping a profit from the deaths of innocent Americans.”

Not even trying to be original, Maloney accused the manufacturers of profiting off “weapons of war” that, in fact, millions of law-abiding Americans keep at home to protect their families.

“I am deeply concerned that gun manufacturers continue to profit from the sale of weapons of war,” she said

Maloney demanded that Bushmaster Firearms Industries, Daniel Defense, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson and Sturm, and Ruger & Company provide information by Thursday about the marketing of their firearms.

Setting aside the banality of Maloney’s talking points (weapons of war? how many times have we heard that one?), guns obviously don’t shoot themselves: they’re material objects. Millions of Americans own “assault weapons” and they aren’t mass murderers.

Democrats exploit tragedy

But Democrats don’t care about the facts, obviously. They don’t know the first thing about these “weapons of war” that they want to ban. They just want to demonize guns and law-abiding people who own them.

It’s telling that Democrats haven’t blamed the man actually responsible for the carnage in Uvalde. For them, this is a political opportunity. The whole point of this exercise is to normalize the idea that guns are bad and that ordinary Americans shouldn’t be allowed to own them.

Only corrupt ruling class puppets like Carolyn Maloney and Joe Biden should be allowed to feel safe, apparently — on the taxpayer’s dime.

Sure enough, Democrats are moving ahead with gun control legislation in Congress they are calling the “Protecting Our Kids Act.” It seems Democrats are deeply, deeply confused: first, they target gun manufacturers for the crime of… manufacturing guns, and now they want to claim America’s kids as “theirs.”

Democrats are doing the one thing they know how to do best: capitalizing on fear and tragedy to make themselves more powerful. They just can’t help themselves.
