Shifting blame and exploiting tragedy

In the wake of the assassination of two NYPD officers the NAACP and Congressman Charlie Rangel are trying to shift the discussion away from the killer’s very obvious revenge motivation to calling for more gun control:

“… These two killings and the life-threatening injury, like so many other unfortunate incidences of gun violence, provide a stark example of the need for sensible gun control measures, and the need to thoughtfully address untreated mental illness …”

The internet does not approve of this crap, ‘Can go eff themselves’: NAACP ‘morons’ ripped for using NYPD killing to push gun control.”

“… “They should be conducting interviews mourning those that they lost and their family, talking about how do insane people get firearms and not criticizing but seeing how we can stop insane people from getting an opportunity to get firearms to kill anybody,” Rangel said on MSNBC’s “The Rundown.”…”

The internet does not approve of this either, ‘Really remarkable’: Charles Rangel schooled after insisting ‘dead cops’ chants never happened.”
