What are the odds?
Just a few weeks ago, I wrote an article about how a few elite billionaires including Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates have spent some $8 million to make sure Washington’s controversial gun control bill, Initiative 594, will appear on the state’s November ballot and that voters will be flooded with anti-gun propaganda in the lead up.
I-594 would require universal background checks, going so far as a making it so that a hunter would not be allowed to hand a gun to a friend on a hunting trip without triggering the background check provisions in the anti-gun bill.
On YouTube, Michael Parkhurst commented, “Commercials promoting the bill have been bombarding us for weeks.”
Now, less than two weeks before that vote, and during or shortly after a SWAT training drill on school district property no less, a school shooting has struck a Marysville, Washington High School just north of Seattle, leaving one student dead and three injured before the Freshman gunman reportedly turned his weapon on himself.
With lightning quick reflexes, the Bloomberg-tied Moms Demand Action group released an official statement calling on voters to learn more about the $8 million gun control vote on Initiative 594 coming up in just 11 days. The politicizing of the event, in other words, sadly but predictably began the moment it happened.
“Gun control is what got these people killed, if teachers had guns most shootings would be deterred,” wrote Alderman Josh on Facebook. Michael Howell added, “The trigger is in the head, not the gun.”
True, but then again, where’s common sense and logic when a multi-million-dollar agenda to destroy the Second Amendment is involved?
Well, it looks like Bloomberg and Gates could’ve saved themselves the money for all that anti-gun propaganda they’ve been flooding Washingtonians with: this shooting and its convenient timing should all but ensure that I-594 will pass.
