Bloomberg, Piers Morgan & celebs use Colo.shooting to push gun control!/IngrahamAngle/status/226317245633146880

Shameful gun control opportunists aren’t waiting for a complete investigation into the deadly movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. The gun-grabbers aren’t even waiting for the blood to dry before politicizing the massacre in an effort to gut the Second Amendment.

Twitchy reported earlier that comedian D.L. Hughley tweeted a reality-challenged gun control diatribe in the wake of the shooting.

Hughley was joined by ghoulish politicians, lapdog media goons and ignorant Hollywood celebs who took their gun control sloganeering to Twitter in the hours after 12 moviegoers lost their lives. It’s not just Rush Limbaugh and the Tea Party that are to blame — it’s guns, natch.

CNN host Piers Morgan loves working in America. The law of the land? Not so much.

Horrendous details from this Colorado cinema shooting. America has got to do something about its gun laws. Now is the time.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 20, 2012

More Americans will buy guns after this, to defend themselves, and so the dangerous spiral descends. When/how does it stop? #Colorado

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 20, 2012

Lunatics like this will always try and get guns. It should be 100,000 times harder than it is for them to do so. That's my point. #Colorado

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 20, 2012

No tears for the victims. Just revolting political opportunism.

Naturally, Soros monkey Eric Boehlert agrees with Morgan.

US gun culture; RT @ThePlumLineGS Agree with @jbouie here: if anything the shooting is about culture, not politics:

— Eric Boehlert (@EricBoehlert) July 20, 2012

As does Univision’s Jorge Ramos.

Unless the US changes its gun laws, tragedies like the one in Colorado will keep on happening. But politicians don't want to deal with that

And Arianna Huffington.

People might say it's too early to have the gun discussion Mayor Bloomberg wants. Actually, it's too late.

— Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) July 20, 2012

But it's not too late for the thousands of people who are alive now, but aren't going to be in the next year due to gun violence.

— Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) July 20, 2012

Nanny Bloomberg, of course, couldn’t resist smearing his hands with the blood of the Colorado shooting victims.

It's time for the presidential candidates to step up & tell us what they'll do about guns in America: #Aurora

— Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg) July 20, 2012

Bloomberg says shooting means time 4 tough national gun control laws. In unrelated news, 51 killed by guns in NYC in June

— Yossi Gestetner (@YossiGestetner) July 20, 2012

Mayor Bloomberg asks Obama for stricter gun laws following Colorado shooting. Yes, because criminals have always obeyed the laws you idiot.

— Andrew Wall (@Awall483) July 20, 2012

NYC mayor says "soothing words are nice" but says it's time for gun control laws.

— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) July 20, 2012

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter is right on board, as are congressional liberals.

Let us keep the victims of violence in CO, and certainly in Phila in our thoughts and prayers. We must take strong action on gun violence!

— Michael A. Nutter (@Michael_Nutter) July 20, 2012

Such violent actions have absolutely no place in our society & won't be condoned. We must confront the issue of gun violence.

— Charles Rangel (@cbrangel) July 20, 2012

The #theatershooting demonstrates the need for #guncontrol. #Aurora #Colorado

— Yvette D. Clarke (@YvetteClarke) July 20, 2012

This is a sad and dark hour for our nation. How many more times are we going to go through this? So many innocent victims of gun violence

— John Lewis (@repjohnlewis) July 20, 2012

Smarty pants celebs like John Leguizamo, Dominic Monaghan, Rob Schneider and Henry Winkler delighted in piling on.

My heart goes 2 all the victims families in colorado. No one should have to go thru that. When r we gonna get guns removed in this country?!

— John Leguizamo (@JohnLeguizamo) July 20, 2012

I wonder if USA will have an open conversation about gun law after this tragic day in Aurora? Very sad.

— Dominic Monaghan (@DomsWildThings) July 20, 2012

Assault weapons are for killing. There are no rational reasons for allowing the sale of these weapons.

— Rob Schneider (@RobSchneider) July 20, 2012

@Vernaccini13 no …but rather individuals who have no business having guns get them far to easily !!!!!

— Henry Winkler (@hwinkler4real) July 20, 2012

@DisneyNut77 @bigfranky75 the sales of guns . the back ally market of sales, the DNA of so many being so damaged

— Henry Winkler (@hwinkler4real) July 20, 2012

And perhaps most despicably of all, author Salman Rushdie thought it would be hilarious to crap out a Batman pun.

The "right to bear arms" is the real Bane of America.

— Salman Rushdie (@SalmanRushdie) July 20, 2012

The right side of the Twitterverse immediately pushed back against the Left’s unseemly cries of “there oughta be a law.”

Mayor Bloomberg & Piers Morgan: gun control is not the answer. Families in #Aurora need prayer right now. Suggest you call for that instead.

— Krystal Heath (@TheFriddle) July 20, 2012

By all means, continue to blame the gun and the tea party, but not the shooter himself.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) July 20, 2012

The USA gun laws are absurd, no one should ever be able to own high velocity automatic weapons, tear gas & explosives. #theatershooting

— Ryan (@RyanWalkinshaw) July 20, 2012

America needs tighter gun control laws, so every city can be just like Chicago.

— John Hayward (@Doc_0) July 20, 2012

The Colorado shooting is NOT a gun control issue; it's a "parents please raise your children to not be psychos" issue. There, I said it.

— John Cachero (@johncachero) July 20, 2012

Some choose to blame guns and their political opponents for these murders, I choose to blame the killer.

— AG (@AG_Conservative) July 20, 2012

One Twitter user sums up the most sickening aspect of today’s efforts to revive the gun control debate.

We have lost the ability to leave a tragedy a tragedy. The leftist media prohibits a non-political reaction. Sad.

— Brady Cremeens (@BradyCremeens) July 20, 2012

Update: Bette Midler also piles on.

What have we done? Why are we so cowardly that we can't stand up to people who don't care about us or our innocent children?

— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) July 20, 2012

Gun control, anyone?

— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) July 20, 2012

Update: Russell Simmons names the NRA the “master pimp.”

Politicians are hoes and the NRA is the Master pimp !!!!!!!!
