Biden, for instance, suggested just hours after the last shot was fired at the Old National Bank on April 10 that Republicans' refusal to support Democratic efforts to curtail Americans' Second Amendment rights was "unconscionable, it's reckless, and too many Americans are paying with their lives."
A neighbor of the shooter told the New York Post that the apparent gun-control activist's 13-page manifesto was discovered by his roommate Dallas Whelan. It is now in the possession of the Louisville Police Department.
The Daily Mail reported that the manifesto made three key points: "He wanted to kill himself, he wanted to prove how easy it was to buy a gun in Kentucky and he wanted to highlight a mental health crisis in America."
If accurate, then Democrats may have made use of the slaughter of Josh Barrick, Deana Eckert, Tommy Elliott, Juliana Farmer, and Jim Tutt Jr. as their killer intended.
TheBlaze previously reported that following the shooting, Biden said, "How many more Americans must die before Republicans in Congress will act to protect our communities? It's long past time that we require safe storage of firearms. Require background checks for all gun sales. Eliminate gun manufacturers' immunity from liability. We can and must do these things now."
"A strong majority of Americans want lawmakers to act on commonsense gun safety reforms. Instead, from Florida to North Carolina to the U.S. House of Representatives, we’ve watched Republican officials double down on dangerous bills that make our schools, places of worship, and communities less safe. It’s unconscionable, it’s reckless, and too many Americans are paying with their lives," added the president.
Gun-rights activist David Hogg intimated that U.S. Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), whose friend Tommy Elliott was slain in the massacre, was "complicit" because of his support of gun rights.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters on April 11, "This is why we continue to call on Congress, uh, Republicans in Congress, to take action. This is not OK. ... We need to do more."
Spectrum News reported that Kentucky Senate Minority Leader Gerald Neal (D) also stressed that the massacre should prompt change, noting, "We must do all that we can to take effective steps to ensure a safer community."
The transgender extremist who murdered six Christians in Nashville on March 27 similarly penned a manifesto, but nothing yet has been revealed about its contents, despite mounting pressure on the FBI from Tennessee Republicans. While her motivations are presently more opaque than the Louisville shooter's, even if revealed, they may not ultimately matter to Democrats, who appear to have framed the anti-Christian violence as another opportunity to advance their agenda.
This apparent keenness to decontextualize and exploit was showcased Wednesday when the Biden White House once again ignored the families of the Nashville victims and instead invited to the White House the three Democratic Tennessee lawmakers who used the anti-Christian massacre as a springboard for their own gun-control activism.
The same three Democratic state representatives — Justin Jones of Nashville, Gloria Johnson of Knoxville, and Justin Pearson of Memphis — recently voted against a school safety bill that would harden security in schools and serve as a future check against the kind of attack waged by the transgender extremist because it would not impinge upon Americans' Second Amendment rights.
