Biden Swiftly Exploits Nashville
Shooting to Push Gun Ban Demand


By Dave Workman. Mar 27, 2023

President Joe Biden wasted no time Monday to use the murders of six people at a private Christian grade school in Nashville, allegedly by a 28-year-old woman reportedly armed with two semiautomatic rifles and a handgun, to push his gun ban agenda.

She was killed by responding Nashville police officers. One NBC report identified the suspect as Audrey Hale.

Biden has been calling for a ban on so-called "assault rifles" for many years and used it as part of his presidential campaign three years ago.

The victims in Monday's murderous rampage included three students and three staff members, according to Fox News. The killer apparently gained entry through a side door at the Covenant School. There were conflicting reports the female suspect may have once been a student at the school, but Nashville Police Chief John Drake was not certain what years she may have attended the private school.

The shooting comes at a time when Congress and state legislatures are battling over proposals to ban so-called "assault weapons." Monday's incident can only add fuel to that political fire. In one report, CNN noted that Senate Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) also declared his support for banning semi-auto rifles and closing alleged gaps in the background check system.

All of these remarks were made even before police were able to find out much about the shooter or what her motive might have been. .....
