Over 200 people were injured and 50 claimed dead after a shooter took fire during a country music festival at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Though #PrayersforVegas began trending the next morning on social media sites, another topic of debate stole the show from sympathy for the victims.

Though countless families and friends were affected by this horrible tragedy, liberals only care about one thing—pushing their political agendas every chance they get.

Shortly after the news of the shooting broke, liberals flocked to social media to promote their gun control policies.

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is currently under fire for her comments made on Facebook— which many are dubbing an ignorant and irrelevant statement in the wake of this horrible tragedy.

Fox News reported:

Hillary Clinton took heat Monday for issuing what critics called an “ignorant” and “irrelevant” statement going after the NRA and silencers in the hours after the Las Vegas mass shooting.

As details were still emerging about the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history – which killed at least 58 people – the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee took to Twitter to imagine how much deadlier the massacre might have been if silencers had been used.

“The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get,” she tweeted, adding: “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”

But conservative critics quickly hit back, saying silencers probably would only moderately dampen the sound of gunfire in this kind of attack – especially from what was described as a high-powered weapon.

The casualties in the attack exceeded those of the Pulse nightclub tragedy in Florida more than a year ago. As with the Pulse attack, the Las Vegas shooting led to prompt calls from Democrats – not just Clinton – for gun legislation, though the party has struggled to tighten laws even when the Obama administration was in power.

Connecticut’s senators, who have been especially outspoken on gun control ever since the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, were among the first to issue statements Monday.

Social media agents also spoke against the private use of guns.

Washington Examiner reported:

The left-leaning website Vox used the incident as an example of how “firearm ownership contributes to America’s murder problem.” Vox said gun ownership “doesn’t translate directly to more homicides,” but said the proliferation of guns in the U.S. is a clear problem “when you compare the United States with nations like Britain and Japan.”

Shaun King, a liberal columnist for the Intercept news site, said on Twitter that, “The United States is the ONLY country in the world that has more guns than people. The sheer math guarantees that this will happen.”

What are your thoughts?

Do you believe that gun control legislation would help prevent attacks like this in any way, or further leave Americans unprotected?
