It's telling that NO Republican politicians are criticizing Biden over the near-daily mass shootings

we are now experiencing.

You'd think they would. Anytime anything bad happens, blame it on Biden. That's Republican-craft 101. Inflation? Blame it on Biden. Gas prices go up? Blame it on Biden. And, of course, illegal immigration increases? Blame it on Biden. But they haven't criticized him one bit over this.

Because what are they gonna say, "Why hasn't Biden passed tougher gun laws?"

The Republicans can't pile on Biden over this because they know that they themselves are the ones to blame for the carnage. They are the ones sucking up to both the NRA and to their gun-loving base, just to get reelected. It's too craven and depraved for words.

It certainly appears that way. If Sandy Hook and Uvalde didn't change anything, what possibly could? LaMouffette May 2023 #8

Sadly, the increase in the frequency of mass shootings that we're seeing right now might be what finally gets Republicans in Congress to vote for a ban on assault weapons.

Not out of concern for children and other regular people getting slaughtered, mind you, but out of concern that it has gotten so bad that even Republican voters will not vote for them if they do not support an assault weapons ban.
