Tragedy befell Las Vegas Sunday night as a gunman opened fire on a crowded country music concert in what has been described as the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Unfortunately, politicians on the left didn’t even have the decency to wait until the final count of dead and wounded was completed or the shooter’s motives determined before politicizing the murderous rampage.
According to the Boston Herald, one of those who set aside common courtesy in favor of exploiting a tragedy was Democrat Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton. In a series of tweets Monday morning, he said he would refuse to take part in a moment of silence for the victims on the floor of Congress and insisted a debate on stricter gun control take place instead — immediately.
The Daily Caller reported that Moulton first tweeted, “Thinking of everyone in
#LasVegas, and praying Congress will have the courage to do more than stand in silence to commemorate them.”
