O'Rourke's Campaign Stunt Not a Round Tripper But More Likely Like a Foul With 2 Strikes Attempt at a Bunt


At the end of Governor Abbott’s press conference remarks on the shooting at Robb
Beto O’Rourke stood up to accusations of failure to act at Abbott lob
He must have thought he would energize his faltering campaign with this stunt
Those on the right thought it was not a home run but a two strike foul of an attempted bunt
The left rallied to O’Rourke’s brazen attempt
To subject Abbott to the voters contempt
Will voters perceive that the attack was a desperate move to politicize the event
When autopsies not even completed and young bodies to the morgue not even yet sent
One might have thought there will be time to this tragedy to investigate
But now a time to grieve not berate or launch a gun control debate
But the Blues have a tendency to a tragedy never go to waste
Blame the Reds and slam responsibility with great haste
When the tears have slowed, bodies buried there will be time to determine in the future should be done
The combination of hardening a soft target like a school and how to prevent mentally disturbed from access to a gun
An overwhelming majority of gun owners are law abiding citizens who practice gun safety with focused zeal
Would never think of shooting anyone unless to protect life and loved ones from a felon or the mentally sick whose behavior is far less from ideal
Expand background checks and expand mental health to ferret out those who are likely to injure themselves or others with a gun
Harden soft targets, limits on ammo purchased and reduction in the size of magazines are small steps that most of us would support being done
