A Democrat congressperson’s car got shot. And her reaction is priceless.
Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) said on Thursday that “any act of gun violence shakes your soul” after her car was struck by gunfire on Saturday.
“I’m touched by everyone who has reached out. Thankfully no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul,” Bush wrote on Twitter. “That’s why our movement is working to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep everyone safe.”
Bush’s campaign confirmed to The Hill that gunfire had struck her car early on Saturday in the St. Louis area. Her campaign noted that no one was injured, and they have no reason to believe she was intentionally targeted.
What an amazing comment. Not intentionally targeted? I’m actually shocked at this comment for two reasons.
First, she didn’t pull a “Jussie Smollett” and blame Trump supporters. After all, that’s usually the first action in the Leftist playbook.
But the second reason the comment shocks me is that apparently you can be driving around St. Louis and just get shot for nothing. Bullets randomly flying everywhere.
As the story continues,
News reports noted the Missouri congresswoman was not in the car at the time of the shooting.
A St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman told The Hill in a statement that she “was unable to locate an incident in our jurisdiction matching this description” when asked about the incident.
It was not immediately clear if the incident had specifically happened in the city of St. Louis, nor was any further information provided regarding where the vehicle was.
So Bush doesn’t even know WHEN the car got shot! The car was parked, and then somebody noticed the gunshots.
Will there be any investigation into this matter? Because this is a matter of public safety, one would think. Does Bush want to find the violent perpetrators who could have killed her or others? No. But she does have a stand on guns.
The Missouri congresswomen has previously supported gun control measures, including the Enhanced Background Checks Act and Bipartisan Background Checks Act last year.
“Every single day gun violence is claiming the lives of St. Louisans,” Bush said in a statement last March after the two bills were passed by the House.
“The devastation and trauma that gun violence has inflicted on our community is unbearable, unjust, and unconscionable,” she added.
I’m sure this gun acted on its own.
Because that’s what Bush indicates. And do you think she will care whether or not the gun who committed this act was legal or not?
Gun violence is NOT what plagues St. Louis. Leftism plagues St. Louis. Because the most dangerous thing in America is unchecked Leftism. Further, the biggest existential threat to mankind is unchecked Leftism.
