Gun Control Lobbyist Hijacks Nashville Shooting Briefing, Rants About ‘Assault Weapons’
She also spewed out a bunch of assumptions on national TV.
A 28-year-old female killed three children and three adults at the Covenant School in Nashville, TN.
A gun control enthusiast decided the press briefing was the perfect time to rant about assault weapons and yell a bunch of assumptions:
The woman walked up to the microphones and asked the journalists if they were tired of reporting on school shootings. She revealed she is currently on family vacation with her child but she came down to the scene when the news broke.
“I have been lobbying in D.C. since we survived a mass shooting in July. I have met with over 130 lawmakers. How is this still happening? How are our children still dying and why are we failing them? Gun violence is the number one killer of children and teens. It has overtaken cars,” the woman said.
“Assault weapons are contributing to the border crisis and fentanyl, we are arming cartels with our guns and our loose gun laws and these shootings and these mass shootings will continue to happen until our lawmakers step up and pass gun safety legislation,” she continued, going on to speculate that, “I’m pretty sure this was an unsecured weapon this teenager got ahold of. We can’t even – safe storage kids from getting ahold of weapons that they shoot each other with.”
Yes, totally normal to go to the scene of any shooting.
The mass shooting she mentioned was the Highland Park, ILL, parade.
The lady who hijacked the presser then went on CNN and said she was vacationing in the area when she decided to go to the sight of the shooting. She also decided to make assumptions about whether the gun was purchased legally or safely locked up. pic.twitter.com/HYTOmZU5fZ

How about this an alternate headline: Totalitarian Karen displays her narcissism at school tragedy by hijacking the press conference.
Obama was America’s greatest gun salesman, but Biden appears to be topping him.
You’re going to easy on her. But I suppose the words I would use don’t usually appear in headlines, except with a lot of asterisks.
Well yeah, gotta get it past an editor. Though June did get away with telling Ward on TV that he was ‘a little hard on the beaver last night’.
I’ve long thought it was wonderfully subversive to name the principal character “Beaver Cleaver”.
And her stupidity. She made claims that were contrary to even the first information that came out, right there at the press conference.
“Gun violence is the number one killer of children and teens.”
Heavy emphasis on the “teens” (15 and up). “Teens” with a career in other crime. “Children” are actually in the noise, but you can always throw them into the mix in a generalization like this to scare the sheeple.
“Assault weapons are contributing to the border crisis and fentanyl”
Yes, but the are in the hands of foreign organized crime. Surely you don’t expect US gun laws to have any effect on that. Especially since the politicians you backed let them in and our of our country at whim, like a dog with diarrhea.
“We are arming cartels with our guns”
State actors are doing so, including their own foreign governments, not private merchants in the US. If you want more details on that, ask your pal, Eric Holder to ask you how it’s done.
“We can’t even – safe storage kids from getting ahold of weapons”
Of course we can. California “safe-storaged kids” in a Merced family away from accessing any of their family’s guns. As a result, they were murdered by a naked maniac with a pitchfork.
Of course, the Carpenter kids were not looking to go on a rampage shooting other people, unlike this NPC’s own kids might be. But then, it’s about the kids, not the guns, and it always has been.
Tell me how a gun ban that’s proved of no use would have stopped the Boston bombing, 911, or Oklahoma City. Until you address the lack of value on human life this isn’t going to end even if you got every gun.
It will never end if we keep preaching that people hate one another, which is now an everyday phenomenon infesting virtually all institutions.
For example, a speech with red backgrounds from a pretend uniter first comes to mind. But there are infinite examples, and there lies the fundamental problem.
Militant far-left extremists and trans activists threaten violence in Tennessee.
One says: ““Many blame queers for the decline of this society – we take pride in this. Some believe that we intend to shred to bits this civilization and it’s moral fabric – they couldn’t be more accurate. We’re often described as depraved, decadent and revolting – but oh they ain’t seen nothing yet.”
From Andy Ngo: “In recent months, rhetoric about carrying out ‘revenge’ & ‘vengeance’ on society for some states restricting the medical transitioning of minors has surged. Through my reporting on #Antifa, I’ve long observed that disproportionate numbers of violent Antifa members are #trans. Still, their rhetoric has become more openly violent recently as they feel emboldened by Democrats & the mainstream left.”
It’s spread almost everywhere:
It’s not just in the trans realm. But with people that want to tear things down, would any control suffice?
This is going to get memory holed quick.
Every single time the Charlie Brown media fall for it only to have the narrative football yanked out from under them.
This story will fade away soon. Because the shooter was transgender and she killed Christians, I would not be surprised if we start to see some very evil comments by the far left.
I’ve seen tweets asking people to pray for the… killer.
Sorry, snowflakes, NOT my priority.
What did the manifesto say that “she” wrote.
Just another dim witted gun control ninny. Refers to the 28 yr old transgender as a “teenager”.
And it’s always “gun violence” as if the firearms, on their own committed the crime. I think these activists receive training to always reference “gun violence” whilst ignoring the deficiencies of the actual human involved.
The constant whining for an assault weapons ban is unrealistic as there are millions of these weapons legally owned. Good luck with confiscating them.
Indeed. Given there are something like 100m firearms owners and 400 million firearms, gun control supporters haven’t figured out that, given the certaintly of violent resistance to any mass confiscation attempt, a confiscating government will run out of confiscators long before the other side runs out of guns.
I think Hunter Biden should be assigned to confiscate privately owned firearms.
… with massive overlap, politically, with the Jan 6 political rally crowd, unorganized riot, accidental capitol tour, and worst insurrection ever.
If the people with the guns were trying to have an insurrection, you’d know. Res ipsa loquitur.
“Given there are something like 400 million firearms, …”
From late 2016, the low estimate is 412 million …
as if the firearms, on their own committed the crime
I commented elsewhere on an article saying she “had shot out the doors” instead of the active voice “she shot out the doors.” Because the passive voice is reflexive to many of them now.
‘Refers to the 28 yr old transgender as a “teenager”.’ Leftists want to treat all of us as children.
When I hear “gun violence”, I think it’s someone that only cares about guns, not violence.
Trans or not?
Yes. Audrey transitioning to Aiden. The Police Chief mentioned her “confusion” may have had something to do with the shooting.
Yeah, mentally ill people shouldn’t have guns.
“Her” momma is a “common sense” gun control advocate.
This didn’t age well.
Why the scare quotes around “her”? She was an actual woman, so “her” is the correct pronoun, even if it’s not the one she preferred.
Because it’s the pronoun I preferred, though many don’t.
And… that tweet is gone.
Maybe someone grabbed a screen capture before the scrubbing.
Confusion? Evil is now confusion
To be fair, she was mentally ill for a long time.
It’s not fair, the bytch took innocent lives, Children, beautiful innocent children
Mental illness is NOT an excuse
I hope she’s burning in hell
God may forgive, I will not
She could have just blown her own brains out
You can listen to the real[ish] news and not know if it was a vagina-haver or the usual shooter.
It seems so: https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2023/03/27/covenant-school-shooter-identified-as-28-year-old-audrey-aiden-hale-he-him/
This is nothing. Wait till the MILLIONS of mentally ill young people destroyed by the prog/leftist educational system we allowed to manifest in this country start REALLY acting out.
These mass shootings are the result of sickness in the brain and in the soul; an underlying corruption and an affliction that have been directly enabled by the vile Dumb-o-crats’ propagation of a pervasive cultural and moral rot throughout all spheres of American society.
That cultural and moral rot is called Progressivism.
condolences to the victims
kudos to the officers responding–“aiden” won’t be hurting anyone esle
You got your 15 minutes. You can go now.
So the “it” shot up a Christian school.
For the first time, we have evidence that the words people are using are actually killing people…just not in the way the progressive harpies thought it was.
Holding my breath for the manifesto to be released.
‘We have a manifesto, we have some writings. We have a map drawn out of how this was all going to take place,’ Nashville Police John Chief Drake said.”
(Daily Mail article linked above)
Just you usual leftist gun nut making up facts as they go along. Just under 43,000 were killed by vehicles last year, there were just under 20,000 murders with guns last year. So no, “Gun Violence” does not kill more people, much less kids, than cars.
Someone should have asked her politely to please step off of the coffins of the dead to make her narcissistic rant.
An interesting comparison:
cars kill more people ENTIRELY ACCIDENTALLY
than guns do ACCIDENTALLY PLUS ON PURPOSE.
It was a transgender that’s what they should be ranting about
Our mentally unstable children, 100’s of thousands
Hey, it’s a bonus for the gun-banners> Now they can say she was a white male.
Tranny terrorism — the latest bitter fruit of the vile Dumb-o-crats’ rotten cultural and moral harvest.
This is an evil, demonic, violent hate crime against Christians.
“Gun violence is the number one killer of children and teens. It has overtaken cars,”
And yet they’re all about banning cars for Gaia, what that does to people be damned. So, they’re all about banning guns because…
We need common sense tranny control.
Never letting an emotive tragedy that supports their gun banning agenda go to waste, the leftist propagandists rapidly pump out the memes while ignoring the realities.
At least 12 people were shot, two fatally, in gun violence over the weekend across Chicago – and it’s a safe bet that almost every single one of the guns used were illegal – just like in the rest of the 115 shootings there so far this month and 398 so far this year. One person is shot there every 4 hours. One murdered by gun there every 17 hours.
So why aren’t they given the same breathless press anti-violence coverage as this shooting?
– Because of the unhandy fact that the guns used in Chicago were already illegal.
– The vast majority of those shootings were via handguns, not long guns (‘assault rifles’ or not) and of course handguns aren’t the flavor of the week, possibly because of owner demograpics
– This shooting involved kids, a school, and multiple casualties, which is raw meat for the leftist propagandists. The only drawback for them is that the shooter turned out to be a tranny with a manifesto, but the snowball was already rolling down the hill when that fact became known.
– Because a review of the numbers indicates not a gun problem, but a people problem, with the racial breakdown of the shooters/victims in Chicago this year being:
While the racial breakdown of the city is:
The mainstream press, where unhandy facts go to die.
Chicago media merely states 10 shot, 2 killed over the weekend, now on to the weather……… I follow the same website. It’s an eye opener. Most of these killings are gang bangers taking each other out and typically by the same race. Now if it’s a white Chicago cop taking out a black or Hispanic violent criminal gang banger, the city is looted, burned and taxpayers have to pay the gang bangers family $$$$ millions of dollars.
Some, Select [Black] Lives Matter (SS BLM)
I just want take a moment to recognize the loss of lives, loss of love and loss of memories for the families.
At the hands of a mentally deranged assailant.
The conservative Presbyterian world is pretty small once you get off the east coast. I know some of families there. Many of my friends are friends with the parents of the slain children and at least one of the teachers.
Thank you for taking that moment.
Isn’t it interesting that a lot of these people who complain about “assault weapons” and guns in general know very little about them? And often times cannot define “assault rifle”?
Why do NONE of the “progressives” seem to understand that taking the guns (and ammo) away from the ‘the good guys’ doesn’t stop criminals from getting guns (and ammo)?
Because they don’t recognize that there are “good guys” and “bad guys”. All people are equally likely to commit all kinds of crimes. Crime is caused by poverty or circumstance, or by systemic oppression, not by bad character. So any gun is equally likely to be used in crime, regardless of who owns it.
Also, all lives matter equally, so there is no difference between a murder and a justified homicide in self defense; either way someone is dead, so they’re exactly the same.
Also, all lives matter equally
Oh, I don’t think that’s quite what they’re thinking. But your point is correct.
They think they are the good guys, which means nobody should be armed but them.
And of course when you operate on the “do anything it takes” principle to gain and retain power you get to use those weapons as you choose.
And to piggyback on Milhouse’s statements…
Progressivism denies human nature and thinks that a law or regulation automatically has a large effect. The mere fact of writing down the rule means vast numbers of people suddenly become saints in that arena. Of course, they also are willing to use force against people, if necessary, to progress toward their utopia. But there’s this bizarre notion (flowing from their worship of human reason, I suppose) that the mere thought, or intention, being written down manifests in changed reality – and that leads us right back to the “trans” delusion….
A sane and healthy nation might take this as a wake up call that mentally confused people who believe they are the opposite of their true biological sex need mental help more than artificial “rights” which require everyone else to participate in their delusion. But we don’t have that, so it was inevitable that leftists turned the slaughter to their political purposes. Always happens within hours.
How are our children still dying and why are we failing them?
Very simple. You won’t let us protect them in the most efficient manner possible – by carrying in those “sensitive” areas.
It has overtaken cars
This has been debunked. And it includes a bunch of people that hardening schools won’t protect – 18 and 19yos. Who are being killed wholesale in gang wars.
we are arming cartels with our guns
No. One of your presidents (I guarantee you virtuously voted for him to prove your progressive bona fides) did that. The Mexican police and army do that. But “we” sure as shootin’ don’t.
I’m pretty sure this was an unsecured weapon this teenager got ahold of.
Well, if so, she sure decorated them in a hurry. I doubt these were even bought very recently. (And the shooter is 28, and – surprisingly! – not living at home with mama.)
we survived a mass shooting in July
She claims to have been there.
Her mother had circulated “a petition to keep guns out of schools”. Providing clear evidence that all the laws in the world won’t achieve that objective, if there isn’t someone there to stop the armed person.
Interesting to note that 2 of the last 7 mass shootings have been committed by people who identify as transgender. Yet, they continue to blame an inanimate object.
