The Atlantic’s Dick Polman believes the Democrat Party needs a “new massacre” to make gun control “a first-tier story.”

On January 27, 2019, Polman, an Atlantic contributor, noted that the Democrats took control of the House with plans to push gun control. And less than a week after taking control, they followed through by introducing a bill to criminalize private gun sales.

But Polman notes that the gun control bill did not garner major airplay in the establishment media, leading him to suggest a “new massacre” will be key in getting the push more attention. He wrote: “The Democrats’ championing of gun reform is not currently a first-tier story, but a new massacre would likely make it so.”

He’s right. He’s a shameless scumbag, but if you accept that the left isn’t above this shit you’ll see that he has a point.

Ma.
And when the guns are gone and the .gov starts attacking the first amendment the media will wish there were still people with guns to defend them.
Most of them are complicit in what's going on so they'll just tow the party line and spew the propaganda they're directed to.

Well, it worked for PNAC. They got their new Pearl Harbor followed by their entire wish list with the exception of Iran.

He's not wrong really, just insanely selfish and amoral to call for such a thing.

Like all good Communists, Polman doesn't care about people. As Stalin said, "One death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic."

As long as Polman isn't the one lying on a sidewalk bleeding to death, he doesn't care who or how many die. Better if they are white male Republicans, but it's okay if they're not.

He’s not wrong and I’m sure if he’s patient he’ll get his wish...

Gun control will never prevent a single killing....
News flash people sometimes kill other people...we’ve been doing it long before guns.

The pattern of going hard to the left post Obama by many in the Democrat party is the #1 danger to the 2nd amendment. The next time we get a democrat house, senate, and president I believe there will be a push to amend the constitution to remove the 2nd amendment rights from the constitution. It would be a dark day.
