After the two recent shootings, first in Atlanta, Georgia and yesterday in Boulder, Colorado Democrats are determined to use these tragedies to advance their gun control agenda.
To that end CNN is now spreading fear and panic over gun violence, wondering if we are suddenly facing a spring and summer of “mass casualty events” as covid lockdowns begin to ease.
This is truly despicable and the folks who run CNN should be ashamed of themselves but as we all know shame is not something they are capable of.
If the media was truly interested in calming things down perhaps they’d stop making criminals into victims and glorifying violence.

Rather than editorialize further on this here is the raw transcript of the exchange and it is very enlightening. Note the gaslighting:
KAYYEM: “The second will be what they know about the suspect and whether he will be named and arraigned today. And then the third will be just about the investigation, what are they finding in the market, how did the suspect get a hold of his gun. And then, of course, what is the motive?
There’s a larger story here that may not be addressed today, but is one that we have to address in light of what happened in Atlanta, which is are we facing a spring and summer of mass casualty events as we come out — as people congregate.
That is something that the Biden White House will have to address as well.”
CAMEROTA:” Juliette, how can that be? How can it be that after a year of basic quarantine in the country, the first thing we do as Americans is go back to mass shootings? How can that be?”
KAYYEM: “So — yeah, it’s a distinctly and sadly American problem, right?
This is something that is so unique to us that I think it’s hard for Americans to grasp just how accepting we are of this kind of violence.
We get upset and thoughts and prayers, but nothing ever changes. Here is something that’s interesting, however. We have a belief that we were all inside, nothing happened last year.
There were not mass shootings like we’ve seen in the past at schools, theaters and supermarkets, but gun violence was actually up 25%.
We don’t know if that’s because of psychological stresses, suicides or whatever else. So, I know a lot of people are saying America is back.
You know what? America never left.
We have a gun problem and it’s one that was persistent through Covid, but one that may take on more deadly consequences because people are congregating and out again.”
