Whenever a tragedy like Sunday’s occurs, you can count on liberals to show their true colors. Examples include a teacher who offered her prayers online that the victims of the massacre would all turn out to be “Trumptards” and a CBS executive who said she had no sympathy for the victims as “country music fans are often Republicans.” She didn’t clarify whether her bad tidings go equally for the 11% of Republicans who didn’t vote for Donald Trump.
Among politicians who behaved badly was the speaker of the California State Assembly, who said Monday that all pro-gun politicians and lobbyists are just as responsible for the 59 casualties sustained Sunday night in Las Vegas shooter as the gunman himself.
Democrat Anthony Rendon tweeted that shooter Stephen Paddock didn’t act alone in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, blaming every gun lobbyist and politician that supports the Second Amendment.
Rendon added that the police gave a false statement by saying the shooter appeared to have acted as a lone wolf.
“The police say the shooter appeared to have acted alone. That’s not true,” Rendon said.

It is still unclear how Stephen Paddock acquired his guns, but leading Democrats are already demanding stricter gun control legislation, claiming that this tragedy could have been averted.
Paddock fired hundreds of rounds into a crowd gathered at a country music concert in Las Vegas at 10:08 p.m. local time.
Rendon did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment in time for publication.
