Piggybacking off a post earlier which showcased the worst of right wing Twitter in the immediate aftermath of Wednesday morning’s shooting at a Congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, VA, we thought we’d take equal time to spotlight the worst of left wing Twitter’s reaction to the attack.
Where the right focused mostly on Kathy Griffin, the left focused mostly Steve Scalise‘s gun control stance.
it’s time for liberals to go after the Heller decision just like conservatives go after Roe. Settled law? So fucking what. #guncontrolnow

If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?

Opposing sensible gun control laws on behalf of the NRA is all fun and games until you’re shot in the face.
