The liberal professor’s honest admission came just moments before he suggested repealing the Second Amendment anyway.
According to Campus Reform, Eastern Connecticut State University’s Professor Englehart took to social media in the aftermath of the tragedy in Las Vegas to call for a repeal of the Second Amendment, which guarantees U.S. citizens the right to bear arms. Englehart’s post was baffling, as before he even got to his suggestion to repeal the “cursed amendment”, he acknowledged that doing so would would not actually stop gun violence, merely “slow it down”, and only then after “a generation or two”.
Every time a gun is involved in a tragedy, the first thing the Left does is divert attention away from supporting victims or pursuing justice in favor of blaming firearms and calling for restrictions on a constitutionally-protected right. Englehart’s willingness to admit that more regulation isn’t actually a solution is rare, and presumably unintended, but at least it’s honest.
In another pique of honesty, Englehart announced “there’s a creep out there with a perverted belief system thinking, ‘Fifty-eight? Hell, I can top that.’” There are, in fact, thousands of such creeps. Unfortunately the Left is aggressively trying to import more. In the meantime, recent terrorist attacks have proven that guns are wholly unnecessary to commit mass murder. The tragic death toll of 59 in Las Vegas is dwarfed by the 84 dead in the Nice, France attack, which was carried out with a cargo truck, not a gun.
We can all hope that someday, society evolves beyond the kind of sociopathy that spurs this sort of attack, the hateful idiots that show up afterwards, and the ignorant fearmongers exploiting the victims to promote their agenda.
In the meantime, the Left will no doubt continue its campaign of willful ignorance about the real source of danger, and continue to exploit the Las Vegas victims in order to strawman the conservative stance that a good guy with a gun can save lives in an active shooter situation.
