The father of Eric Talley stated that his son would have been “deeply offended” to know that his death was being used as a tool in the hands of liberal Democrats to justify and promote gun control.
“My son would have been deeply offended to know his death would be used to promote gun control,” Homer Talley told TMZ in an interview the website published on Thursday. “Before he was an officer, he enjoyed shooting.”
Talley’s father said that the did not blame the death of his son on access to guns. He also told the outlets that his son wouldn’t either.
Nevertheless this is what Democrats and their anti gun, anti Second Amendment vultures do. They take someone’s tragedy and misery and exploit it for political gain.
Ever since the incident that killed Talley, a mass shooting in King Sooper’s grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, President Joe Biden and many other progressives have been making major calls for restrictive gun control measures to be put into action. Biden went so far as to call for a total ban against assault weapons in light of the incident.
Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the 21-year-old shooter, is alleged to have used an AR-15 style pistol during the shooting.
“While we’re still waiting for more information regarding the shooter, his motive, the weapons he used … I don’t need to wait another minute … to take common-sense steps that will save lives in the future. [I] urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act,” Biden said, according to a report from The Daily Caller.
If Biden was sincere about this beyond politics he would demand harsher penalties for law breakers not creating new hurdles designed to frustrate law abiding citizens.
