Obama Wastes No Time Calling For ‘Commonsense Gun Safety Laws’ Immediately Following Atlanta Shootings

Former President Barack Obama wasted absolutely no time calling for “commonsense gun control” laws to be passed by the current administration after a series of shootings took place at several massage parlors in the city of Atlanta.

The culprit is believed to be a 21-year-old man who has already confessed to the crimes.

“Even as we’ve battled the pandemic, we’ve continued to neglect the longer-lasting epidemic of gun violence in America. Although the shooter’s motive is not yet clear, the identity of the victims underscores an alarming rise in anti-Asian violence that must end,” Obama wrote in the first post of a series of tweets published on Twitter.

“Yesterday’s shootings are another tragic reminder that we have far more work to do to put in place commonsense gun safety laws and root out the pervasive patterns of hatred and violence in our society,” he went on.

“Michelle and I pray for the victims, their families, everyone grieving these needless and devastating killings—and we urge meaningful action that will save lives,” the former president added.

According to the Associated Press, “The attacks began around 5 p.m. when five people were shot at Youngs Asian Massage Parlor in a strip mall near a rural area in Acworth, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Atlanta, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Jay Baker said. Two people died at the scene and three were transported to a hospital where two of them also died.”

“Around 5:50 p.m., police in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, responding to a call of a robbery in progress, found three women dead from apparent gunshot wounds at Gold Spa. While they were at that scene, they learned of a call reporting shots fired at another spa across the street, Aromatherapy Spa, and found a woman who appeared to have been shot dead inside the business,” the AP continued.

“Police officials said the investigation is ongoing, but the events were not believed to have been racially motivated. Instead, they believe Long opened fire because he saw the locations as ‘an outlet for him’ to succumb to purported sex-addiction temptations, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jay Baker said during a news conference,” Fox reported.

“‘He apparently has an issue, what he considers a sex addiction, and sees these locations as …. a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate,’ Baker said,” the report said.

So Obama’s going to make the call for gun control laws that will limit the rights of law abiding citizens because of some fruitcake who doesn’t think he can control his sexual impulses?

Why should the rest of the country, the vast majority of which follows the law, be punished for the insanity of a few nutbags? That doesn’t really seem fair.

Then again, the left doesn’t really care about the victims here. All that matters is they have an opportunity to politicize this event and use it as justification to take away guns.
